    Stable Development Hatsu 2013

    I've been meaning to select new deshi, and I know I have open slots, however, haven't found that extra time to scour the banzuke for future hope!

    FAWL Kyushu basho 2012 banzuke (+discussion)

    - 1) I'm VERY interested in continuing to play this game. It's different, and because the picks are made pre-basho, I'm able to play it more readily. It would certainly be better with more players, however, is a challenging game. - 2) It's good! I guess Sekitori Quad. is what "bumps" FAWL to the side... sadly.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Natsu 2012, Final standings

    Arigato gozaimasu. I have been working hard to reach a high level of success. I am in shock to have achieved this rank. I thought no one would ever join Azumashida at the top. Now the pressure is truly on me to perform.

    I want to fill my slot (opened by Ishikawa intai) with Osunaarshi!

    Salarycap Sumo Haru 2012

    I'd love to play, however, I can't due to a trojan virus error messages indicated by my software protection program. Are you able to post the game via this forum? Thanks!

    Makushita Game Haru 2012

    I've been getting virus notifications to entry forms for both Makushita game and Salary Cap game. I cannot acces either site. My Ms Game entry: Sakumayama Tochihiryu Tochitsubasa Tatsu Hishofuji Sadanoumi Chiyoo Aozora Shoketsu Wakamisho Chiyoarashi Takateru Chiyozakura Takatoshi Toyohikari If I could, I'd have a Salary Cap entry... Thanks.

    Pick The Yusho Winners, Hatsu 2012

    Thank you!! Thank you. I am proud to honor my rank of ozeki with this yusho! The competition was fierce and I'm amazed I came out on top! I will now tell myself that my previous yusho was not a fluke. I, too, congratulate Mysko for a strong performance. You should join me at Ozeki!

    Makushita Game Hatsu 2012

    Thanks for including my "late" entry in the results. I was hoping for another good basho. Too bad it had to be cancelled. This one certainly has some drama to end with. I think you'll get the prize back that I temporarily stole.

    Makushita Game Hatsu 2012

    for what it's worth... I'm only getting around to checking all the results. I used the entry form prior to the basho. I'm saddened that it didn't work. My Hatsu picks would have been... ms1-4: Kitazono ms5-8: Tochiyashiki ms9-12: Hakiai ms13-16: Sakumayama ms17-20: Saishin ms21-24: Rikiryu ms25-28: Tochinohama ms29-32: Kotoyutaka ms33-36: Chiyoo ms37-40: Mankajo ms41-44: Yamatofuji ms45-48: Rendaiyama ms49-52: Nakanokuni ms53-56: Takunishiki ms57-60: Wakamisho How would my Heya be doing at this point??

    Makushita Game Aki 2011

    It's weird... now I was 7-8 and still moved from 5-10 to 6-9... I agree that there must be something wrong. My position in the standings is obviously a mistake. My position sure isn't a mistake... (On the banzuke...) I'm not surprise at the letdown following a Yusho. Don't get me wrong I'm disappointed, but not surprised because last basho I was out of character. Doitsuyama, you didn't have to follow me down the standings after our struggle last time... Sorry.

    Pick The Yusho Winners, Nagoya 2011

    Torafujii follows up his two consecutive junyusho in the previous 2 basho with the yusho this basho and will be promoted to Ozeki. Well done!! Thank you Oshirokita... deliberation council... :-) Having been on vacation the first week of hon-basho I wasn't able to follow the results as closely as I usually do. When I took a quick look at the results I was amazed to see the success of my picks! Needless to say I was on pins and needles following the results in week two. I shall continue to train hard, fight hard, and bow deeply as I strive to uphold the honor of Ozeki. May I continue this great run of form. The true test will come when I must compete against dai-Yokozuna Azumshida.

    Makushita Game Nagoya 2011

    ... a deep bow to the Ozeki Doitsuyama. :-) The battle was fierce and the challenge great. I am honored to Yusho. I didn't think I'd ever accomplish this... I tried so hard in the past without much success - overthinking and regretting my picks. This may be my only career yusho, however, I'll relish it (Yusho winner...) and certainly keep trying for more! I encourage the other rikishi to continue to gambarize! Thanks to the admin. for running a fun and challenging game.

    Pick The Yusho Winners, Nagoya 2011

    Oh boy!! What's gonna happen?!! I have trained extremely hard for this opportunity. I will fight to the end with my head held high no matter the outcome.

    Please continue the game. It may be a very unique basho, but it will be strategically fun regardless. Make an adjustment as you feel necessary, yet find a way to gambarize, similarly to the real basho.

    Would July about playing GTB?

    How did I pull off such a great result??? I am simply amazed. I have worked so very hard in the past to do well, however, haven't been able to finish in the top 25! Jun-yusho?!?! This shows me that not over-thinking and over-analyzing is a better approach. (Even in other games... if you've also realized this, please chime in!) Thank you for running this excellent game! (First prize...)

    FAWL Natsu'10

    I can certainly relate. Obviously, I've over-thought my picks. Now I'm hoping for a respectible finish. Best to you, too.

    Last Call for Rotosumo (Natsu 2010)

    Please remember my shikona change to Torafujii... not a "new recruit".

    FAWL Natsu'10

    Looking forward to this basho. I'm eager to overtake Konosato this time and push for the yusho again!

    Stable Development game: The Third Tower

    I will also jump on the bandwagon... Replace Isanokuni with Tatsu. (new shikona) Torafujii
  24. Toratorii

    How long will Hakuho be the sole yokozuna?

    I say it'll be a rikishi who isn't even in Makuuchi yet. One that will "turn it on" and soar through the ranks. I'm not 'seasoned' enough speculate who, however, we have a few years to see the development.

    Stable Development game - Hatsu 2010

    While I'm thinking about it... Please, fill one of my open slots with Saishin.
