  1. Very rough night, but I figured it would be. It would have helped a lot if Yutakayama had kept his feet and beat Tochinoshin as he should have. Did well in H2H. Win in SG for KK and almost pulled out a miracle in Bench. I'm going to need a good Day 15 to get me over the KK line in some games. No points anywhere except Norizo where I might have an outside shot if Tokushoryu doesn't win by tsukidashi. I don't know how common the exactly 2 wins for the special question is. Probably not anyway given I don't have the yusho winner. I know right? WTH? I'll never understand how matches like these turn out the way they do.

    Tough loss for Asanoyama as he was pwning Kakuru up till he touched down first. Considering that I would have given the decision to Asanoyama.

    Not grow, stabilize it till they can repair. Dohyo looks particularly dry this basho. I'm wondering if the lack of people has caused the humidity in the room to drop a lot resulting in the dohyo drying out faster than usual. The top looked particularly wet and slippy the other night. They may be trying to compensate.

    If you picked: Nishikigi (2.11), Chiyotairyu (3.59), Tochiozan (2.13), Myogiryu (2.11), Takarafuji (2.14), Aoiyama (5.88) in ODD tonight. Total Quota = 1285.14 I think that would clinch the yusho.
  5. And a 5.88 in Odd. Considering the record between them I think those numbers might still be too low to pick Aoiyama.

    Yeah, yusho winner looks to be among the top 4 right now. I will be happy to hang onto a KK.

    4 double digit win basho in a row? 5 of the last 6 along with a Yusho and Jun Yusho? Say hello to Ozeki Asanoyama everyone. Sumo, and fans, needs some good news.
  8. Terrible night. How the heck I won in the H2Hs I have no idea.

    Basho cancellation?

    Not being tested does not mean that they are not being treated if they have flu symptoms. They won't be hospitalized to be treated unless they need intensive care even if they test positive. They will be given medicine to take for their symptoms, told to self quarantine and sent home. They don't immediately hospitalize people that test positive. If the media is reporting this as some kind of failure then they are being irresponsible.
  10. I just did this again but I did it about a half hour before you sent this message originally. Just in case my picks are Shimanoumi with Myogiryu as a backup .

    Basho cancellation?

    Chiyomaru qualified to be tested because he was symptomatic and he was exposed to large numbers of people on a daily basis. The NSK had to know because they already committed to shutting down if 1 did test positive. I have no idea why you would suggest anyone will die as a result of a delay in testing if they are displaying symptoms. They are going to be treated for their symptoms based on their severity. A positive diagnosis doesn't change the treatment for flu, regardless of the type. Their is no drug to cure this. They simply mitigate the symptoms as best they can to give you the best chance at surviving long enough for your body to deal with the virus. The need for wide spread testing is to find people who are asymptomatic and positive to get them in quarantine and stop them inadvertently infecting others.

    I'm just hoping to hold out for a KK in Oracle. Boy the placement, or not, of Takakeisho last night was critical on the H2Hs. Kind of surprised to see some place him so high. I would have benched him if Aoiyama was not facing someone he never faced before. Shocked to see him as @RaeucherLax pick for Chain. But at least he got sole Jun-Yusho. Congrats!!!!!

    Not good. He's seems to be light all of the sudden. He's been winning because his opponents get nowhere on the tachi-ai as he was resisting well enough to counter and finish them. They are now.

    Foot Wetting

    Here's hoping they at least put some bleach in it. But given the guys are rubbing themselves all over with towels and handing it to the yobidashi I wouldn't bet on it. Joseph Lister would not have been a Sumo fan.

  17. I'm really starting to hate tiebreakers. Asanoyama and especially Endo killed me tonight. Wow, I thought I had it bad. Owl is getting raped on tiebreakers in SG.

    @Mmikasazuma @RPedro44 Asnaoyama won by fusen. There are no fusen wins in Chain. KYUJO - When your default pick goes Kyujo, your second default pick kicks in.. IMPORTANT!! You cannot win OR lose by fusen. If your picked rikishi is involved in a fusen match, the default kicks in automatically.This is so no player will have any advantage due to time zone differences, as we had happen in the past. In the highly unlikely event that your default is also involved in the fusen match, you're toast..The best thing to do is keep an eye out for possible kyujos, and stay away from that rikishi!!
