    Oracle Day 11: Leader: DeRosa Gurowake, Norizo -2 Chishafuwaku -8 Pandaazuma, Choshu-Yuki -10 Scott, you can work out your and Andoreasu's projections by comparing them to mine. Ando looks to be your main rival for the Green Mawashi.

    I haven't had time to check the Masters but it looks like you are up for a good score. I think Susanoo is also having a decent basho. Andoreasu too. Just take a look at the lads who keep appearing near the top and compare yer chances. I will add you to Oracle from tomorrow. (Yes, I got the hint!!)

    Oddly enough I myself managed that feat back in 2013! Not sure who else has done it. http://www.japanguide.info/sumo/rikishi.html?449 And beers help greatly for gut instinct players! You remind me a little of Sokkenaiyama, actually, in the way you pick. And that's a good thing. ;)

    Haha...I am glad someone is happy. You are having a good tournament and setting up a nice ozeki run. Keep it going. Not sure how many times there have been back-to-back Makuuchi yusho either. That would perhaps be unprecedented. Yeah, I picked a fine day to have a nightmare. If we had met every day this basho (like the Baka Cup arrangement I have with Haidouzo), I would have been 7-2 up against you coming into day ten. So I definitely got you on the wrong day!! You will probably get matched up with Norizo on day 14 or 15. You also have to get past Yamashiro and Kogaratsu. Best of luck! And enjoy the beers! ;)

    I looked at the torikumi last night and groaned as I could immediately see it was the kind of day that my system rarely handles. My filtering system means I am not able to pick idiots like Chiyoshoma or Kagayaki even when they're against reasonably poor opponents, and there were few other viable options, so I had to go for riskier picks of lads who had tougher bouts. And...as I expected...I got slaughtered in every single game. I won't be changing anything though...in the long run, such a filter generally works. But today was a horror show. And it was not only the dailies. The pre-basho scene went even further south and this basho is an almost complete write-off. I'll be lucky to get ten points. Odd Sumo, Salarycap and Norizo are my only slight hopes. Strong finishes in SG, TTT and Toto may yield some small change. Elsewhere it is total carnage, with most of my pre-basho lads injured or fighting like morons, while the orthodox picks are mostly flying. My worst gaming basho for about five years. I am, however, enjoying the sumo. Been the best basho for a while. Now 6-4 in the Baka Cup. GAMBARIMASU!

    Lost two important games today - Toto and TTT - so my fading Masters potential points fade even faster. The pre-basho disaster just keeps getting worse, but I'm not bitter. I gambled and lost. I thought Yutakayama would be healed by now, and I have no idea what's bothering Toyonoshima. They have screwed me big time though. SG at least is looking OK but I have some tough bouts coming up and I want to try to wrap up KK asap. Bench is a sick joke. 5-10 would be a major achievement with the muppets I have. 6-3 in the Baka Cup! Hurray! Almost nothing there in pre-basho. Juryo Game is possible if my idiots wake up for the last six days. Salarycap depends enormously on Takayasu and/or Goeido getting a jun yusho. Oracle is not too bad despite my awful overall pre-basho performace. A Mitakeumi 5-10 would greatly aid matters. GAMBARIMASU!

    Panda overcame Seb to win his fifth straight and improve to 6-3. A powerful Owl beat Scott to stay well in the yusho race. Gary's fine comeback continues. Three straight now. Nice nine-pointer from Chisha today, making him 4-5. He needs those wins to avoid demotion. Stefan won again and is two wins away from a return to Makuuchi. Unko got back on the winning track. Jezz is 6-3 after a win today. Ronnie won strongly but he has work to do. And Steve marches on. Sole leader at 9-0. Day 9: Rank Wins Points AADs Opp AADs 10 8+ 5- TB TB+ Who?

    Oh, you'll beat me for sure. I need a strong second week and some luck just to get more than zero. ;)

    Not a bad day but it was blemished by a change of pick that lost me TTT...one of the few games I am doing well in. Annoying. My Bench team is killing me as most days I couldn't even win with a GBL so this basho looks a write-off there. Improving nicely in Tipspiel, SG and Toto and a strong second week could see me do OK there. Pre-basho is a total write-off now. Small chances in Juryo Game, Norizo Cup and Salarycap exist and Oracle is probably my best bet as long as Mitakeumi gets 7 or less. Basically, I need to do well in the dailies to get my target of 30. And I snuck a tight win over Scott and am now 4-3 in the Baka Cup. GAMBARIMASU!

    Panda overcame a very stubborn and lucky drone to go into positive territory for the first time. Scott prevailed in a close one to also improve to 4-3. Gary finally gets his first win...in style as well, with a very impressive 9. Chanko and Seb had bad luck losses. Rupe was rubbish...hope he is tomorrow as well as he is fighting Panda. Owl is the TB king as he goes to 5-2 and very much in the yusho race. Mark picked up a much-needed win at the expense of Kuroimori. Renaud and Sergio both won but need another one for parity. Stefan is grinding out wins and is now 4-3. Unko is having a nightmare. In Makushita, Steve is still perfect with two others. Jezz won to go 4-3. And Ronnie lost a tie and needs to turn things round.
