    Regarding Fantasy Sumo, Mike is aware of the problem but I haven't heard anything back yet. Yes, I have asked. It looks fairly serious, so I am hoping for this basho at least that Asashosakari managed to get the picks into a spreadsheet. Then at least we can publish the results on here for Masters purposes. @Asashosakari

    If I get the chance, I will update the Oracle projections again on day 13.

    A strong day for the Panda and I am now leading about five games...with plenty of chances in others too. I will have limited time for picking the last four days though so I will have to hope for the best. 6-5 in the Baka Cup now. Just two more... GAMBARIMASU!

    Stefan won again for his KK and guaranteed Makuuchi survival. He can now go on and try to win the big prize against some top-quality players. Scott won too despite the headache and is still in contention. Unko leads the Juryo yusho race jointly now. Ronnie is right up there in the Makushita race too. And our first losing goes to one of the unluckiest players in the whole game (as well as Bench). Poor old Fujiyama. Excellent scoring but a day 11 losing record is not very pleasant at all. I have to go away until next week so am unable to update these stats. I believe Owl will be stepping into the breach...many thanks to him. Good luck all...bring those trophies home.

    It is what it is. Assuming all rikishi finish 2-2, that will be his relative ranking.

    Now I now Chain is all a bit of fun, and I know it is massively luck-based, and all the other usual disclaimers... But...a player who left the building and hasn't made any picks since day 9 may end up winning on day 13? Really?? ;)

    Oracle day 11: I have added @chishafuwaku as he looks a yusho hopeful and is also a serious Green Mawashi contender. Leader: Chishafuwaku Gansekiiwa -1 MechaJejima -4 Pandaazuma -5 Choshu-Yuki, Gurowake, Haidouzo -9 Norizo -10 Valiant comeback attempt by Choshu-Yuki. Will it get her a KK? Looks very much like my punt on Takakeisho's injury will cost me a large number of Masters points here.

    Norizo Cup 2019.9

    How lucky is that?? Recently every 'active' rikishi I pick suddenly becomes rubbish and every 'non active' one becomes super genki. So, yes, this was a major gift! That said, I had a feeling Tsurugisho would do well this basho, so I felt seven wins was achievable by day 10. I am therefore surprised only three players picked that option, given that selecting most of the other options was the equivalent of throwing a dart at a piece of paper.

    Sorry to hear you are ill, Scott. Hope you feel better soon. Eat some centipedes!

    Two thirds in and things are looking OK considering the massive uncertainty. Very good in Bench and Toto (8-2 in both). Still have Masters points chances in ISP and Tipspiel. SG has been very frustrating, as I have picked OK but kept meeting strong outliers. Still, as a Yokozuna, it is my fault for not picking better, so I will aim to win out. Pre-basho looks a lot better, with Masters potential especially in Hoshitori, Paper Oyakata, Bingo and Oracle, with possibilities in Norizo Cup (I got the special question right today, but no idea how many others did) and slight chances in Juryo Game (if Takanosho remembers how good he is). Green Mawashi looks currently to be a battle between Chisha and Susanoo along with myself. And I restored parity in the Baka Cup. Can I win from 1-5 down? GAMBARIMASU!

    It truly is 'Wacky Aki' and the scoring reflects it, as we currently have the second-lowest average in Sumo Game history. A lack of almost any reliable picks will do that, of course, and this is possibly the first time in the history of the game that we are looking at an extended period of such uncertainty. In Centipedal Makuuchi Stefan proudly leads the way with the joint highest score (all divisions) and a fine 7-3 record. He needs only one more win to stay in Makuuchi, and that must be the first order of business, and then he can look to yusho possibilities. Jan and Scott are one win behind and still very much in the race. Unko gets our first winning record today in Juryo with a fairly easy slate of oppoents. He'll be making Mark very jealous, as he is 3-7 with a far superior score. Extremely bad luck there. He and Eric are now in the last-chance saloon. And Ronnie also gets a kachi koshi and is still in the yusho hunt with Nekotaikai's loss. Day 10: Rank Record Points AADs Opp AADs 10 8+ 5- TB TB+ Who?

    Irritating day with dumb judges and bad gyoji-ing and nasty henkas spoiling all the fun. I'm still flying in multiple games. Nice slaughter of Scott as well to bring the Baka Cup within reach at 4-5. Having a good basho though and I'm up there with the other green mawashi contenders. Not looked in detail, but I think Chisha is having a strong basho. GAMBARIMASU!
