  4. Sandanme Game Kyushu 2017

    Congratulations to the Yusho winners! It's an amazing achievement by Gurowake. Great job! Does this mean that Itachi and Achiyama are Jun Yusho winners? Or Jun Yusho is not granted in this game. Just checking.
  5. Congratulations Beni-zeki! I wish your words will be a great advertisement of TUG for New Gamers! The most important thing is not to loose hope when playing TUG. Even if you don't score every day - you still have a chance for a great finish. Can we, the veterans and big supporters of TUG, convince the new blood of sumo fans to try this "fantastic" game (these are the words of Benihana)?!
  6. ANNOUNCEMENTS PROMOTIONS: JAKUSOTSU will be promoted to OZEKI during 2018 Hatsu Basho. Congratulations! HAIDOUZO will be promoted to OZEKI during 2018 Hatsu Basho. Congratulations! PANDAAZUMA will be reinstated as OZEKI during 2018 Hatsu Basho. Congratulations! KADOBAN: Unfortunately, GUROWAKE and HOLLESHORYU will be kadoban during 2018 Hatsu Basho . ACHIYAMA TUG Rijicho
  7. And now comes the Kekka format, which will be used for making the 2018 Hatsu Banzuke. Here are the Kekka points (calculated by using the simple equation "Points*7.5 / Mean"). Note: Bonus points - 15 for Yusho Winner, and 10 points for Jun Yusho are added ONLY for Kekka and Banzuke purposes and for better differentiation at the Top. 2017 Kyushu Basho - Kekka format for Banzuke purposes: Gamer Kekka Shokikogi 14-1 Tenshihan 12-3 Senkoho 11-4 Benihana 11-4 Pandaazuma 10-5 Jejima 10-5 Kishikaisei 10-5 Sakura 9-6 Katunazuma 9-6 Suwihuto 9-6 Haidouzo 9-6 Profomisakari 9-6 Jakusotsu 9-6 Gaijingai 9-6 Pitinosato 9-6 Oshirokita 8-7 Flohru 8-7 ScreechingOwl 8-7 Wamahada 8-7 Andonishiki 8-7 Reijinguoshan 8-7 RaeucherLax 7-8 Andrasoyamawaka 7-8 Gurowake 7-8 Fujisan 6-9 Tsubame 6-9 Wakatake 6-9 Holleshoryu 6-9 KikoCookie 6-9 Mmikasazuma 6-9 Chishafuwaku 6-9 Achiyama 6-9 McBugger 5-10 Shimodahito 5-10 Kuroimori 3-12 Kumanoyama 2-13 Joaoiyama 0-15

  10. After a hectic night and long trip after 2-hour sleep I finally arrived safely in Columbus MS. Congrats to Shokikogi! He is one if the Gamers with most stable performances the last few basho. Very nice analysis of your journey - more ups, and just one down. If this MK didn’t happen during the last 4 bashos we’d have been talking about Yokozuna Watch for next Basho. Although it’s obvious that Jakusotsu and Haidouzo will be promoted to Ozeki I didn’t confirm their promotions on purpose. As for Panda-zeki - we’ll see. Cross fingers and hopefully his inability to participate on Senshuraku doesn’t make him ask the question “what if.....” I’ll try to finalize the Overall Standings and detetmine the kekka points tomorrow and put the suspense to rest. Congrats to Tenshinhan and Senkoho for their achievements this basho too! TUG suspense was present this basho to the very last day. Senkoho had a shot on the Yusho, but misfired. Shokigoki played safely but could loose too (it happened in the past to other Gamers - Yusho had been stolen on Senshuraku). Tenshinhan had a very precise punch on Senshuraku “stealing” the Jun Yusho from Senkoho. But isn’t this suspense the most interesting thing of TUG?
  11. As the top Gamers are not involved in tie break I can announce the TUG Winners for 2017 Kyushu Basho: Shokikogi is the Yusho Winner with 248 points. Congratulations! Tenshinhan is the Jun-Yusho Winner with 222 points. Congratulations! The Final Overall Standings will be posted later when time allows. The Sansho will be announced also later. Many thanks to all TUG supporters and participants during 2017 Kysuhu Basho. Hope to see you all in January during 2018 Hatsu Basho. Best Regards, Achiyama, TUG Rijicho
