    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    I apparently misquoted slightly, but this is what I was referring to when I wrote about "finally finding the strength to retire", from the upthread interview:

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    Long needed, and I congratulate him on his decision after such a long and illustrious career. In his retirement interview (upthread) he said something about finally finding the strength to retire. So many athletes have this problem, hanging it up when it's time. Good for him for finding that strength, and good luck in this next phase of his career.

    Carry on. Fukurou has had a brain fart and nearly missed the entire basho.

    I have brain farted the entire basho. Would the game masters for Hoshitori, UDH, and Banzuke Surfing (all waves) please grant kosho status for Fukurou?

    I was lucky - the sub was in the active line-up at the time so got points for that spot (I don't remember where he was, but say if he was in the 7 point spot then I got 21 bonus points). I had asked the question about getting those points because he wasn't in the lineup I'd originally selected. Sansho are easy - if the sub is active or not, add 10 points if he wins a sansho. Yusho are complicated - if the sub is active, give him triple the points for the position he's in. If he's not active, what does he get? Some nominal amount has to be determined, but how many? 1 point because he's not in use? Clarification of original language - "my lineup" is what I submitted to start the basho with, my 13-1 picks, not including the sub. "My team" is "my lineup" plus the sub.

    FWIW here's my experience datapoints for the collection. I've had a few times where A withdrew, sub replaced him, A came back, sub went out of play, B withdrew, sub replaced him. Once or twice A came back after B withdrew and sub moved from A to B. I've also had a sub (in play or not) yusho or sansho and did receive full points for sub (3 extra wins for a yusho). I did ask about that because sub wasn't in my lineup and was told he got points because he was on my team. One thing I don't recall was how much manual manipulation this required, if any.

    He also had regular wins against a yokozuna and an ozeki. However, as others pointed out it's the "sanyaku regular" thing that put him in that position.

    Was Kotoeko injured on/around day 10? He got his KK (8-2), and followed up by losing his last 5 matches.

    Tamawashi has 10 wins but needs 11 for Kanto-sho, while other guys can get it with 10? EDITS - I sent before I was done writing, sorry about that

  15. The case of M3w Tamawashi - He has 10 wins from M3. He beat O1w Takayasu and Yw Kakuryu. However, he's 3-4 against the active sanyaku overall, with a 4th win by default when O2e Takakeisho withdrew (making his basho record against those ranks 4-4): 1-3 vs the Komusubi and Sekiwake, 2-1 vs the Yokozuna and Ozeki (not counting Takakeisho). Is that enough to be awarded a Kanto-sho?
