    Game 21 for the Aki 2022 Basho

    Welcome to Game 21 for the Aki 2022 Basho. Here we go again and I am launching the game today while Profomisakari will be back for the day to day comments. So, let's play!  HOW TO PLAY GAME 21 Shortly after the Banzuke is published, 21 potential bouts are selected by the admins. You just have to decide which bouts will or will not take place and, if they will, who you think will be the winners. Each correct pick will earn you one point. If a Rikishi is listed in one of the potential bouts but never appears on the Torikumi for the 15 days of the Basho, the bout will not count for the allocation of points (minor rules adjustment introduced for the Nagoya Basho already). If two or more entrants end up with the same number of correct picks, the two following tiebreaker rules will apply: TB1: entrants will earn TB points for their ability to spot winning outsiders (i.e. the fewer players pick up a Rikishi the more points you score) and the entrant with most TB points will be the winner. TB2: if the first tiebreaker does not suffice to separate them, the entrant with the earliest submission time will be declared the winner. The deadline to play is the Friday before Shonichi at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC) If you want to play, simply click the link below. it will take you to a multiple-choice form that will offer you three choices for each bout: A if you think the first Rikishi will win B if you think the second Rikishi will win X if you think the bout will not take place  In addition to your picks and your Shikona, the form will ask for a valid email address. The reason for this request is (a) to allow the system to send you a copy of your picks and (b) to allow you to update your choices until the deadline by clicking the “Edit Response'' button that is in the email. Besides, after you have submitted your choices, you will have access to global selection statistics (not individual player’s picks).  So, if you want to play for the upcoming Nagoya Basho, HERE IS THE LINK.  The deadline to play is Friday 9 September at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)  To help you prepare your picks before getting to the form itself, here are the bouts for the upcoming Basho: Nagoya 22 History Rank A # Rank B # X 1 1-1 K1e Abi 0 M2e Kotonowaka 0 0 2 5-5 M7e Aoiyama 0 M9w Kotoeko 0 0 3 5-5 M14e Chiyoshoma 0 M9e Myogiryu 0 0 4 2-2 M11w Chiyotairyu 0 M10w Takanosho 0 0 5 2-2 S2e Daieisho 0 S1w Hoshoryu 0 0 6 6-5 M6w Endo 0 M5w Sadanoumi 0 0 7 0-1 M16w Hiradoumi 0 M13w Oho 0 0 8 6-6 M8w Hokutofuji 0 M8e Tochinoshin 0 0 9 6-8 K1w Ichinojo 0 M4w Takayasu 0 0 10 2-1 M13e Ichiyamamoto 0 M16e Mitoryu 0 0 11 5-6 K2w Kiribayama 0 O2w Mitakeumi 0 0 12 2-3 M11e Kotoshoho 0 M10e Nishikifuji 0 0 13 1-1 M2w Meisei 0 M1w Midorifuji 0 0 14 1-1 M4e Nishikigi 0 S1e Wakatakakage 0 0 15 5-4 M12e Okinoumi 0 M12w Ryuden 0 0 16 6-5 M7w Onosho 0 M15w Tsurugisho 0 0 17 2-3 O1w Shodai 0 M3w Ura 0 0 18 4[+1]-5[+1] O1e Takakeisho 0 Y1e Terunofuji 0 0 19 0-1 M5e Takarafuji 0 M6e Wakamotoharu 0 0 20 1-2 M3e Tamawashi 0 M1e Tobizaru 0 0 21 6-7 M15e Terutsuyoshi 0 M14w Yutakayama 0 0 And again, if you find that the game is more fun if you can have an idea of the picks of the other players, you can see the minute-by-minute evolution of the choices FOLLOWING THIS LINK. Good luck to all.
  2. I normally play the forum games as Tameiki and the others as Kyoju. This game is one of the two exceptions.

  17. Welcome to Game 21 for the Natsu 2022 Basho. As is now customary, I am launching the game today and Profomisakari will be back for the day to day comments. So, let's play!  HOW TO PLAY GAME 21 Shortly after the Banzuke is published, 21 potential bouts are selected by the admins. You just have to decide which bouts will or will not take place and, if they will, who you think will be the winners. Each correct pick will earn you one point. If a Rikishi is listed in one of the potential bouts but never appears on the Torikumi for the 15 days of the Basho, the bout will be counted as correct for all the players. If two or more entrants end up with the same number of correct picks, the two following tiebreaker rules will apply: TB1: entrants will earn TB points for their ability to spot winning outsiders (i.e. the fewer players pick up a Rikishi the more points you score) and the entrant with most TB points will be the winner. TB2: if the first tiebreaker does not suffice to separate them, the entrant with the earliest submission time will be declared the winner. The deadline to play is the Friday before Shonichi at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC) If you want to play, simply click the link below. it will take you to a multiple-choice form that will offer you three choices for each bout: A if you think the first Rikishi will win B if you think the second Rikishi will win X if you think the bout will not take place  In addition to your picks and your Shikona, the form will ask for a valid email address. The reason for this request is (a) to allow the system to send you a copy of your picks and (b) to allow you to update your choices until the deadline by clicking the “Edit Response'' button that is in the email. Besides, after you have submitted your choices, you will have access to global selection statistics (not individual player’s picks).  So, if you want to play for the upcoming Haru Basho, HERE IS THE LINK.  The deadline to play is Friday 6 May at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)  To help you prepare your picks before getting to the form itself, here are the bouts for the upcoming Basho: Hatsu 22 History Rank A # Rank B # X 1 1-1 S1w Abi 0 Y1e Terunofuji 0 0 2 6-5 M11e Aoiyama 0 M10w Nishikigi 0 0 3 2-3 M15e Azumaryu 0 M5e Onosho 0 0 4 4-4 M11w Chiyoshoma 0 M12e Myogiryu 0 0 5 7-6 M13e Chiyotairyu 0 M16e Ishiura 0 0 6 3-4 K1w Daieisho 0 S1e Wakatakakage 0 0 7 5-8[-1] M4e Endo 0 M4w Takanosho 0 0 8 8[-1]-10 M3e Hokutofuji 0 M1e Takayasu 0 0 9 3-3 K1e Hoshoryu 0 M2e Kiribayama 0 0 10 10-9[-1] M1w Ichinojo 0 M3w Tamawashi 0 0 11 1-0 M15w Ichiyamamoto 0 M10e Okinoumi 0 0 12 1-1 M17w Kagayaki 0 M16w Midorifuji 0 0 13 3-3 M7w Kotoeko 0 M5w Tobizaru 0 0 14 1-0 M17e Kotokuzan 0 M14w Yutakayama 0 0 15 1-1 M2w Kotonowaka 0 O1e Mitakeumi 0 0 16 2-2 M9e Kotoshoho 0 M14e Oho 0 0 17 5-5 M13w Meisei 0 M12w Sadanoumi 0 0 18 1-1 M8e Shimanoumi 0 M9w Tochinoshin 0 0 19 6-10 O1w Shodai 0 O2w Takakeisho 0 0 20 1-1 M7e Takarafuji 0 M6e Ura 0 0 21 1-2 M8w Terutsuyoshi 0 M6w Wakamotoharu 0 0 And if you find that the game is more fun if you can have an idea of the picks of the other players, you can see the minute-by-minute evolution of the choices FOLLOWING THIS LINK.

    Game 21 for the Natsu 2022 Basho

    And here are the updated rankings too. In the "Rolling Ranking", newcomer Sumo Spiffy has taken the lead while Hakuryuho has caught up with Flohru who remains in second place thanks to a better TB score. In the "Annual ranking", Flohru and Hakuryuho are tied at the top, Flohru remaining in first place thanks - again - to a better TB score. They are joined on the box by Profomisakari who is now in third place thanks to - you guessed it - a stronger TB score than Oortael. Note also that Fujisan's performance means entering the Top-10 (from rank 22). Thank you all for participating.
