    Gaijingai Intai In Several Games

    No, that’s my son...until 4am! Then he gets up for work 4 hours later! I don’t know how he does it each Monday - Friday.

    Gaijingai Intai In Several Games

    That’s one of the longest games to enter each day...and one which takes a lot of thought. What I’ve never liked about the game is the time zone advantage Europe and Asia have over North America. Too many times I lost because some rikishi went kyujo at the usual announcement time, which is 1:00am where I live, and my opponent therefore put the kyujo rikishi’s opponent at the top of his choices. If you look at the daily games, many, if not most, of them have kyujo rules preventing players in better time zones from taking advantage of that.

    I hope I find time, too. The problem will be that if I do eventually come back, I'll be started at rock bottom. All these years (decades?) I've had the advantage of starting with the first time the game (any game) was played; thus I was always starting in Makuuchi. No lack of interest...just lack of time. I'm already REALLY missing those 7 games!! Note: The last game I will ever retire from will be my love and joy, Bench Sumo.

    Level 1 Bar. The game is run by the bar's General Manager, D.J. Gullette. It is fully automated and is a pre-basho game, pretty much along the lines of Rotosumo, but with no Juryo picks. If you want in next basho, contact D.J. at dj@level1bar.com The bar gives prizes.

    Gaijingai Intai In Several Games

    I've been playing sumo games since Totoro's Hoshitori and Dale Carlson's ISP back in the mid-1990's. As each new game came along I grabbed onto it. Games came and went over the 26 years, but I didn't quit any I had started playing. I have been playing 20 games the past few years (plus a sumo game I play at a bar in Cincinnati, Ohio and I live 500 miles away in Virginia!) Age is creeping up on me as well as work and my free time is disappearing quickly. Thus I am declaring intai in the following games: Sekitori Toto, Sekitori Quad, Odd Sumo, Sumo Game, Ciber Sumo, Juryo Game, and Sekitori Oracle. To me, those take the longest to enter, either pre-basho or daily. I'll still be in 13 games that I consider quickies to enter, but I'll see if I have to pare back even further in March. Since these games don't have an intai button on them, I guess that eventually I'll just slowly fade off the banzukes. Sob - what a way to go. But - I may be back in them someday, like when I retire in 9 years (or more...I love my work, plus I can't beat my office location - only 10 steps from our kitchen).
