    If you think this is complaining, you genuinely don't understand my character. I can see why you think it is, but I am the type who simply states facts uncaring of how it comes across. You can think what you like but I know perfectly well that I am not bemoaning my situation - simply explaining what is happening. It's a bit disappointing that you have chosen to be so unfriendly and insulting without bothering to check, but there you go. Sign of the times, I guess. And now I know.

    Not sure why I always have to end up explaining things to you! I suspect you think I am some kind of moron or something! Lol...not far wrong! ;) Of course I am perfectly well aware of this fact. My point here is that my position in the pre-basho games is absolutely marginal - as in right on the edge of the top ten in most of them. Teru was my (and several other people's) top pick of course, but there are some around me who DIDN'T have him as their top pick but at a lower prority. That small discrepancy normally would make no difference, but in this case it means I will likely miss out on small change in five or six pre-basho games - I reckon about 15-20 points could be lost. Oracle especially I may lose a lot of points as I have him on 11 (same as you). I reckon he would have got ten so Choshu-Yuki, for example will go from a differential of -1 to +3 and this will be reflected elsewhere too. Other players who had him will either be already established in the top ten or nowhere near it where it would make almost no difference at all. You also seem to think I am complaining or something - I genuinely am not. Simply stating a fact.

    As the basho descends into total unpredictability, my games also collapse. The dailies are just a sick joke now - can't pick at all in this environment. Picking systems are meaningless so I would do better picking at random, I suspect. To make things worse, the pre-basho games have been heavily damaged by the Terunofuji withdrawal - will probably cost me a lot of Masters points in the end. I am around the edges of the top ten in several games but unless senshuraku is absolutely amazing for my lads, I'll end up with nothing. So it looks like I'm back to aiming for 1 Masters point after all. A real rollercoaster basho. Started terribly. Came back brilliantly. Absolutely collapsed at the end. Naturally Norizo has just kept winning his dailies and he looks the red-hot favourite for the title, I'd say. The Teru withdrawal hasn't affected him at all as his points are ALL in the dailies. All I can do now is hope for an excellent senshuraku and a Panda blowout win in Kyushu. Can't see that happening with the current sumo level though. I mean...it is woeful right now. I don't remember sumo being this poor. Tobizaru leading on day 13?? Give me a break! Tokushoryu yusho the other basho?? Hahaha. I mean, I like these lads having a go but let's not pretend this is anything but abysmal right now. Shodai and Asanoyama have been good, especially the former. Chiyonokuni and my fave Akiseyama have been cheering me up in Juryo. But otherwise...nah! Wake me up when we get a couple of decent Yokozunae in maybe five years or so!

    Hey @Fujisan I was wondering...do you know if anyone has somehow ever managed to go from Makuuchi to Makushita in Bench in just two tournaments? That would be unbelievable!

    LOL! I was actually shaking my head last night at the torikumi knowing full well I would have a disaster today. SG was a guaranteed loss as my system only gave seven viable picks from the whole torikumi, meaning I had to pick three from either idiots (Ichinojo, Mitakeumi) or strong lads in difficult bouts (Waka). I even changed Hoku (a win) to Waka (a loss) but I would have lost anyway thanks to Teru. Both of these types of bouts are usually avoided but I had no choice. Naturally all three of these lost. This has been the story every day and it explains why my scoring has been so abysmal. Just hoping to crawl over the finish line basically. Amazingly I won the important dailies - Quad, Toto and TTT. The others are write-offs apart from SG so it matters not at this stage. Just hoping to sneak KKs in those. The pre-basho wasn't great but I kind of held position, which was the best I could hope for on a day like this.

    KK for Jezz. Not much else to report. Humdrum stuff by the Centipedes, albeit with large dollops of bad luck. Day 12: Rank Record Points AADs Opp AADs 10 8+ 5- TB TB+ Who?

    A couple of things... First, you don't have to bet 3 ante every day in Odd Sumo. So you can play till day 15 with lower bets on strategic days. The other thing is that the Oracle standings are basically meaningless until maybe the last couple of days or so...and even then are quite misleading. There are other ways of tracking your Oracle performance (see the gaming banter thread).

    Masters Update... Day 11: Flohru was flying on day 8 but has cooled off somewhat since then. Ganzo lost a little ground too but is still looking strong, mainly due to very strong positions in UDH, Norizo Cup and TTT. He is looking OK for Hoshitori (although that game is volatile) and also Oracle. Norizo and Panda have gained ground and, as I thought, Kaito is also a real contender for the Masters. Projections: 1. Ganzo: 65 2. Panda: 56 3. Norizo: 55 4. Kaito: 54 5. Flohru: 40 6. Jezz, Kishikaisei: 25 8. Andoreasu: 17 As mentioned last time, only Ganzo, Norizo and Panda have the Oracle projections in there so the others may get more if they excel in that game. Norizo's top scores depend massively on his daily performance so if he messes those up, his score could collapse. He is probably the best daily gamer in the world, though, so I fully expect him to close things out without a fuss. Panda's best chances are in the pre-basho games but a few dailies could pay dividends too. Kaito also has a mix of potential earners. All in all, quite an intriguing contest. @Kaito
