  1. Congratulations to Holleshoryu. I did horrible sumo this time. But I am using my grandchildren as my excuse, as I was on vacation over spring break with them, and did not have time to study as I should have. We had a fun time though, staying one step ahead of the COVID as the places we stayed shut down behind us. I will do better in May...or not! Thank you Achiyama for a fun game.

    Wakatake, did you ever compute the sansho prizes for this basho? Just wondering.

    TORCHBEARER 2020: the picks, torch match notices, results

    I was just wondering what effect cancelling the basho midway through (in the case of a rikishi contacting the coronavirus) would have, not only on this game and others, but on the sumo itself (banzuke based on results to that point, or throw out the whole basho as if it never started. For this game, I would think that cancelling one basho would have a great effect on the results, as 7 less lower division bouts this early means that the torch has a much lower chance of reaching the paid ranks. Just wondering.

    Drop Sumo Games Haru 2020

    From what I read today, the rijicho said that if even one rikishi contracts the virus, the basho will be terminated immediately. In that event, I would guess that all games should become null and void. Just my thought.

    Here is my yusho acceptance speech (very, very, late): Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while! I don't know if I can stand the success. First the 2019 yusho in Torchbearer and now the 2020 Hatsu basho in Class Dismissed. I am sure my results will return to their abject mediocrity very shortly. Thank you Wakatake for an easy to play game. Yoohoo
  6. Congratulations Jejima!

    Wakatake, No problem. This is my first time playing, and didn't know how it worked. Glad you are well. Yoohoo

    TORCHBEARER Banzukes ... finally

    I saw this coming. Really good showings by the top of the banzuke means really bad banzuke luck for me. In almost any other year, a yusho would have put me in Sanyaku, but with everyone winning above me, it was not to be. I wonder...if I can manage to get back to back yushos, would I make Ozeki? Probably not, but one can dream. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Yoohoo

    TORCHBEARER 2019: the picks, torch match notices, results

    Let me first apologize to all of the players who have much more talent than I do at playing Torchbearer. I especially apologize to Fujisan, who score points during the year, and also scored points for both Rank and Rikishi. Well done. I accept this yusho (my first an only in any game after 20+ years of playing sumo games) with this one sentence speech: It IS sometimes better to be lucky than good. Best holiday wishes to all, and I hope to compete with all of you again in 2020. Yoohoo
  13. Wolfgangho, Hope and pray that all turns out well for you and your family. Torideyama / Yoohoo
  14. Chishafuwaku, Thank you for looking out for me. I am happy! Yoohoo

    Achiyama, Glad you are OK. I am traveling now, much like you do. Looking forward to playing, and trying to do better this basho. Thank you for a fun game. Yoohoo
