    Sorry for the tardiness. One player din't send in a new line-up, and so uses his day 4 entry.

Both Goly and Jejima had losing holes. Goly has marginally better RAFs. (If either of my double whammy's had been correct, I'd have won, but....!)

Yes, Takanowaka was put in the hole! Both holes lose. Both have 3 correct RAFs, so we go to rule #4 for the first time.... 4. Lowest rank of correctly predicted rank-and-file winner. If both players have losing Holes and an equal number of correctly predicted rank-and-filers, then the player with the lowest ranking predicted winner wins. If this is the same for both players, then that rikishi is ignored (ie the next lowest ranking predicted winner). Of course, if that rikishi is also the same, then ignore that one too, and so on. Zenjimoto didn't predict any winners, so it is easy to award the win to sekihiryu. Be Kintamayama v Dw Gusoyama Kintamayama Day 3 H - J6e Toki W (Pulling hair...)

I wonder if Jejima will go for a Miyabiyama win against Kotonowaka, who appears as a probable loser among jomojo's substitutes. Okay, Jejima didn't choose Miyabiyama... But he did mess up his double whammy hole / RAF combo. But so did jomojo. It comes down to the RAF, and amazingly it is thanks to Jomojo picking Tamanoshima to beat Chiyotaikai (whereas Jejima favoured the Ozeki) that gives the win today to Jejima. Had Jomojo predicted that bout to go the other way, he would have won on an obscure tie-breaker.

    Before publishing today's results, I am changing the leader board - and the rules to eliminate the old rule #2. Why? It is a pain to work out the leader table before matches, and besides, unlike with football (where it was introduced), there are no Luzembourgs / San Marinos taking part! Revised rules are therefore.... 1. Number of Hoshitori wins 2. Non drones. In the case of a drone tie-ing with a non-drone on the hoshitori, the non-drone gets precendence. 3. In the case of a tie then the better predictor of 'Holes' wins. 4. As above, but total number of correct overall predictions. 5. As above, but total number of correctly predicted WINNERS. 6. Whoever was originally the higher picker. 7. East side over West side. Yesterday's revised Yusho Leader Board (Shonichi's position in brackets) 1. (3) WG Nishinoshima (Punk rocker...)

    Rikishi in the Hole

    Yusho Leader Board Order decided by the rules already given (please note clarification to rules 4 and 5, and new rule 7):- 1. Number of Hoshitori wins 1a. Non drones. In the case of a drone tie-ing with a non-drone on the hoshitori, the non-drone gets precendence. 2. In the case of a tie, then the head-to-head results of the players involved decides order. 3. in the case of a tie (eg 3 players are tied, and they each lost one, and won one of the matches against the other two), then the better predictor of 'Holes' wins. NB, a mixture of rules 2 and 3 may be used to determine order. 4. As above, but total number of correct overall predictions amongst RAF. 5. As above, but total number of correctly predicted WINNERS amongst RAF. 6. Whoever was originally the higher picker of the three or more rikishi still tied after all this! 7.

    Wakanosato gets unexpected help

    It is also covering all bases. If Chiyotaikai goes MK, and Tochiazuma doesn't get 10 wins, and if Kaio wins the Yusho (and so gets promoted to Yokozuna), Sumo would be without an Ozeki. Although in this instance, they could have two Yokozuna-Ozeki, but I have a feeling they would promote Wakanosato with 12, 11 or even 10 wins. Actually, my sneaky feeling is that even under normal circumstances, they may let him become an Ozeki with just 11 wins.

    Sumo Game Deadlines

    I definitely agree with Zen-zeki on this one! I usually have to fend off a few players every basho asking why they can't enter Bench Sumo as the deadline has passed. They tend to think it is my fault, and that not enough warnings have been given..... The possible confusion with the script may encourage them to think that I am in the wrong..... (Laughing...) Now if only all Bench Sumo players joined the special Bench Sumo Mailing List (bench_sumo-subscribe@yahoogroups.com), not only would they receive notice of the deadline, they would also get excellent, witty commentary from the dedicated day-to-day gyojis, and find about other comps that are being run at the same time - some not even (yet) on the Bench Sumo rules page!

    Watching Hatsu Basho At a Reasonable Hour?

    No idea about the US (I'm from the UK), but I am fairly sure that you'd be able to get a satellite / cable feed from NHK. Just need to pay for it. With that comes the English broadcast. So, just set your video timer, and watch it later at your convenience. The live-feed is okay (make sure that you get on it in time! Too late, and it won't let you watch), but sadly has no action replays - or commentary. However, (perhaps at the weekends?), you may wish to join the sumo forum chat room whilst watching the live feed, and chat with other sumo fans.... ....some of whom are very knowledgeable!

    A Few Pre-Basho Talk

    Not sure if I agree with this statement. When I used to watch NHK TV, and they zoomed to any person in the crowd with any connection to the rikishi about to fight, that rikishi always tended to win. I remember when some Mongolian dignitaries were in the crowd, and every Mongolian won. I think with his parents watching on Day 1, Hakuho won't do a 'Kaio' but will actually raise his game up a further notch (I am sort of glad that I have him in ISP). Asashoryu however will also want to silence his critcis over the lack of preparation, and so will also raise his game above his already high standard. No matter the outcome, I think we may have one of the bouts of the basho on our hands, and possibly the winner will go on to take the Yusho. Me, I can't wait! What a way to open Shonichi! I plan to be in the Sumo Forum chat room later. I hope others will be there too (Laughing...)

    Hey, I said it first! (Laughing...) ...and talking of Kaio (as I was), wouldn't you say perfect first two day opponents in his quest for Yokozuna-hood? <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
