    I only do relative standings with the top-rankers. From next basho I can add you to the list if you like?
  2. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Ha! But you also have Daieisho and Yoshikaze along with your two kyujo lads. Plus Onosho, Chiyotairyu and Tamawashi screwing you up most days, losing bouts they should be winning.
  3. Happy Birthday Kuroimori

    Hope you had a good one! I see you celebrated properly! ;)

    Andonishiki got back to winning ways but Seb lost to the ozeki and fell back into a three-way tie for second. Gary is waiting in the wings one win further back. Everyone else is doing OK but Ganzo and Hal are on the brink of losing records. In Juryo Stefan got his ninth and is well in the yusho race. He should be promoted now, but it is not yet certain. Seisset has lost five straight after winning his first six! Ronnie got a win to go 6-5. Jezz lost and needs three out of four. Day 11: Rank Wins Points AADs Opp AADs 10 8+ 5- TB TB+ Who?

    I'm going to continue this sumo gods theme because we are at comical levels now. I would have beaten Kaiomitsuki the last seven straight days on points (not even tie-breaks) soon as we meet face-to-face, I lose. The same story as with Seb and Scott...and probably quite a few more (can't be arsed checking). The sumo gods have a sense of humour too: I went back to beating Seb today. ;) To be honest though I didn't mind losing to Kaiomitsuki at all because he picked well (better than I did) and has also been exceedingly unlucky. At 5-6 I now face a nice challenging battle to win three out of four. Given my luck this year, I'm not going to worry about winning...will just try and pick well and top the scoring charts. In the other games...I won TTT, Bench and Toto but sadly lost in Quad. Still have some chances for a few points but 20 now would be fantastic after this injury-ridden disaster of a gaming basho. Oracle improved a bit but I think it may be a bridge too far. Oh...and the Baka Cup is on a nice early flight back to Scott's basement! It missed you, mate. :) GAMBARIMASU!

    He read the forum! And it was his birthday today!
  8. Games Talk Nagoya 2018

    He's a nightmare. I also have him and so now need 3/3 from my remaining lads.

    Oh, and Seb...I forgot: "It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he were "trading favors" and building up a supply of them to cash in next basho."
  10. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Yep...the perfect sub! I had Yutakayama...not too bad. I wonder who had Yoshikaze! ;)
  11. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Finally! I did it! I was wondering what it would take to actually get Seb commenting on the banter thread. You should do it more often. Regarding last basho's gino-sho, you may recall that I called last basho the H2H basho in SG, meaning that players who made picks largely based on H2H records did well. Congrats on that. ;) Regarding my comments on of the main attractions of SG is the luck element. I comment on it regularly, and indeed point it out (with disgust) when I myself have lucky tournaments while others are unlucky. I will continue pointing out good and bad luck as part of my regular 'play-by-play analysis'. ;) For your part...let's have a few more comments. That is what the banter thread is for after all: BANTER.
  12. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Haha...I have no doubt it does, but that is irrelevant. At the end of the day he is 10-0, so despite all the sweat, he picked up every single point he was trusted with. Results are all that matter at the end of the day. Ichinojo anywhere near the points this basho is likely to give gamers a stroke. ;)
  13. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Oh, it is not a complaint in the slightest. It is one of the cherished elements I like about Bench...this catastrophic disconnect that sometimes occurs. I actually enjoy the challenge of reaching 8 wins with a donkey like Ichinojo on the team. But it is undeniably true that having Mitakeumi at 4 every day dramatically increases the odds of beating anyone with Ichinojo and no yokozuna or ozeki.
  14. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Yeah great stuff. One of THOSE basho in Bench though where a correct limited choice had to be made. If you picked Mitakeumi, you're gonna do ok. On the other hand...
  15. Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Won Quad and Toto to keep myself in the running but it's looking trickier and trickier to bag Masters points with the way things are going. Managed wins in Bench and ISP, too, although the latter is a catastrophe. On the pre-basho scene, which is a gigantic disaster, I repaired some of yesterday's damage in Oracle but I'm still very much up against it. Current projections have Norizo, Choshu-Yuki and Gurowake all 8 points ahead of me...which in Oracle is a looooong way. As for SG, words almost escape me. As I have won 7 out of the last 8 against Scott but met him in SG on the one day that he beat me, I was already convinced that the same would happen today against Seb, given that 1. The sumo gods clearly hate my guts and don't want me as yokozuna - 13 AADs against in the last two tournaments and some kind of sick joke this time too - clear points leader of all three divisions but keep losing in ridiculous ways...and 2. The sumo gods love Seb...and here's why: He is 8-2 while Flohru, with the same score, is 1-9 and Kaiomitsuki, with three points more, is 2-8. He was the ONLY person yesterday of seven yusho rivals AND today of three to win on these two days, drawing him level in the yusho race. Panda slaughtered him in points on every one of the last five days, and so naturally, today - on the day we actually met - he won a draw with perhaps the luckiest win of all time, namely getting away with picking a fat, useless waster like Ichinojo, who literally gave up at the edge, only for Yoshikaze to inexplicably stop pushing (after massacring him in the bout) and then lose. Seb, incidentally, could now very well win the yusho AND be promoted to ozeki in November if he manages an achievable 9 or 10 wins in September. The pressure is on! Can the Sebbster keep his head and go all the way? Back to Panda...I am now 5-5 in SG (and Bench) and will need luck to get 8. And luck is quite obviously something I will be getting zero of. always: GAMBARIMASU!
