    Happy Birthday, Pandaazuma!

    Many thanks, all! Definitely past halfway to my bamboo grave now... Much appreciated, Rando! You may well be sending it to a different address next year given the astounding muppetry I have demonstrated at the start of this basho! ;)

    This will be corrected at the end of the basho as usual.

    Probably the worst start I have ever had, mostly aided by the fact I had almost no time to do anything sumo-related the last few days. First I forgot to change my Ishiura pick in Juryo Game (and UDH). The latter won't matter as I am dead already. The former is a disaster as my team is excellent so I am basically fighting there with one leg. For reference, after Ishiira, Shimanoumi would have been my weak Maegashira pick. Let's see how many Masters points this costs me. Then I picked Takayasu's opponent instead of the pick I actually wanted in Chain. Nice one. Out on day one. I am going to torture myself and keep playing to see how far I would have got. Again...will be 'nice' to see how much this muppetry costs me as well. I also thought Ryuden was injured. But he isn't. That will probably screw me too. So this will be a challenging basho. And my cause wasn't helped by the usual day one lottery where I got slaughtered. I only managed a win in Toto. Well I won Chain too but...you know. Nice birthday present!!

    Premier Fantasy Football

    I doubt there will be much interest here but one never knows. The English football season kicks off next weekend and I am playing the Premier Fantasy Football game. It's free and well-designed...and of course we can have a friends league. I played it last year for the first time and really enjoyed it because it doesn't require much time to maintain - you only have one transfer per week so you can't spend ages fiddling around with your team. If we get three or four people, I'll set up a dedicated league, so please let me know if you are up for it either in this thread or by PM. You can register here: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/ Make sure you read the rules...they're pretty simple/standard but there are a couple of things you may not have seen before (like 'wildcards' and double points for captains). Also, be careful to register for the free game, not the pay one! Cheers, Simon

    Gary is up in the fourth highest slot in the game as he goes for ozeki promotion. He needs 11 wins, a tall order for anyone. Stefan makes his debut at sekiwake after a strong recent run. Chisha is our only divisional promotee - he is back in the big time as a reward for his Juryo yusho last time. Scott is included here but I'm not sure if he will be playing. There seems to be some kind of problem as he has been demoted into Juryo despite his going 7-8 kyujo last time. See what happens.

    It was always going to be a lottery with all those 10-5s and 4-11s flying around. Plus it was not at all clear where the Juryo promotees would end up or even who they all were. PLUS the usual levels of shochu drinking were clearly a major factor here!

    In praise of a Sumo gamer..

    I must say I thought John wrote an excellent article here. Not the boring stuff about me, but the historical stuff that preceded it. He always writes in an unanticipated and insightful way. An outstanding sports writer.

    Terunofuji, basically. I left him out of all my pre-basho games (except Salarycap where he was cheap) as I have a rule of leaving out players with serious injury questions hanging over them and this destroyed any and all Masters points chances in most of the pre-basho field. I did OK in Juryo Game (where Teru obviously isn't a factor) but was let down by a couple of lads. And I think I've done pretty well in UDH but we have to wait for that one. Otherwise...meh. Even Oracle, my staple points earner, let me down. First time outside the top ten for a looooong time there. So I had to rely on the dailies. Odd Sumo was good and I was actually pretty unlucky not to win yusho. Toto was also very nice and I deserved more than 7 points as I was the top scorer in the whole game. Tipspiel also went well and I managed small change in SG and Chain. I have around 32 points plus a probably decent haul in UDH. Hoping to hit the 40s. Andoreasu looks a likely Green Mawashi winner - I would have to win UDH yusho and he would have to get zero for me to catch him. Not gonna happen. Norizo and Kishikaisei have done enough to stay above me in the worlds but I will probably overtake Jejima and go into third. If I can get pre-basho right in one or two of the remaining tournaments, I'm definitely still in the race for the title. Could be a very close one this year. I feel a lot more confident with pre-basho next time though as I now know the condition of the lads. Going into this tournament I had absolutely no idea. Lottery.

    Thanks for all your efforts, Susanoo-san. It is not an ideal situation of course. I recommend everyone double check that their names are not only on the entries list on the site but also on this forum thread, where Susanoo confirms entries.

    A poor last day in pre-basho won't help my Masters score. Managed at least to finish Toto as I started - at the top of the points. Not a great basho games-wise. At some points this basho was pretty unpredictable. Glad Teru won though.
