    Drop Sumo Games Haru 2020

    Okay, thanks.

    Drop Sumo Games Haru 2020

    I'm not concerned if it's cancelled. I concerned if it's truncated and still official. If that's true and the games follow that then it will effect my strategy in certain games significantly.

    Thanks, I saw that. But what if it isn't cancelled? What if it goes 9 days, they stop, and the award yusho, sansho, etc based on the 9 days?

    Thanks for this and I would expect most games, if they award anything, to go with the record as it stands at stoppage. But it would help a lot in some games to know the rules prior to entering. In Norizo cup if it ends early does that mean most of the questions will end up a No? In Oracle if it ends on day 7 will a rikishi at 4-3 be given a 4-11? Would players picking that rikishi as a KK or higher be given a KK for tie break purposes? Will players who haven't bet the minimum in Odd be out? Etc.

    21 Har Har 20

    If the basho starts and then stops, what is the ruling? Will remaining undecided matches be considered Xs? If that is true then put me down for all Xs until/unless I submit updated picks.

    Put me down for 0. I think they already decided to cancel and all this malarkey is face saving. When they cancel it at the last minute they can say they did all they could to run it to all the people in Osaka who spent a lot of time and money for this and are out of luck.

    While I can sympathize with @Konosato point I have to say I agree with @Gernobono and @Ganzohnesushi line of thinking. I don't expect this basho to be much fun at all but if it's on and the people who are wiling to run these games want to run them then I certainly don't want to dissuade them. But any cancellation should void everything that isn't already definitively decided at that point. The only games like that are GTB and CG. Most of the games would probably end up being decided on convoluted tie breaks based on partial results. If it happens on a even day like 10 if would be even worse.How does a game which depends on a lot of late basho results, like Norizo's, get decided fairly? nevermind the havoc of ending on an even day will have for banzuke making.

    Corona and sumo

    Interesting that he brings up the Spring Tour. There won't be one. The Japanese government isn't going to allow 100 some odd people traipsing around the country in buses potentially spreading the disease. The only thing on their minds is the Olympics. The only way to insure those happen is to shut this down now and hope it, and the hype, burns out.

    Silliest idea ever. This is really going to be the Har Har Basho. They should have just cancelled. As pointed out already, are they going to demote guys for a fever? I don't see how they do that. I expect to see some injured or risk averse guys spending quality time in the suana for the 3 days before the basho.

    GTB Haru 2020- 118 entries- and Results!!

    I think I got around 41. Very disappointing considering I got the right guys going down. Unfortunately I had Tokoshoryu 1 rank lower and all of M16-18 in the wrong order. 1 rank off a lot of places.

    Coronavirus in China

    That's my fault. Stupidly I linked back to the forum instead of the article. Thanks for the help. It's fixed now.

    I wonder if they cancel the basho due to the Coronavirus if they won't just hold the banzuke for March and issue it 2 weeks before the May basho.

    With Shodai having 2 more wins and the sole Jun Yusho from 2 ranks behind? I didn't even think about it.

    I just felt that if they didn't feel compelled to make one for Asanoyama at M8 they wouldn't for M17.

    I dropped Kotoyuki but kept Meisei. I figured with Kotoyuki having surgery and never starting he would go. I promoted Kotonowaka, with Tomokaze out he was basically a J1 last basho IMO. Did not get a confirmation email but I am on the list of entries so I hope it's okay. Maybe I mistyped my email. Mine was this: Kakuryu Y Hakuho Takakeisho O --- Asanoyama S Shodai Hokutofuji K Endo Daieisho M1 Takayasu Okinoumi M2 Mitakeumi Abi M3 Tokushoryu Yutakayama M4 Enho Ryuden M5 Onosho Kagayaki M6 Myogiryu Takarafuji M7 Tamawashi Shohozan M8 Kiribayama Tochiozan M9 Takanosho Tochinoshin M10 Sadanoumi Chiyotairyu M11 Ishiura Teurtsuyoshi M12 Aoiyama Kotoshogiku M13 Ikioi Kaisei M14 Tsurugisho Azumaryu M15 Chiyomaru Nishikigi M16 Daiamami Kotonowaka M17 Shimanoumi Meisei M18 ---

    Sad for me. Not a good time to get my first MK. Just have to get the Juryo yusho in March to make up for it I guess.

    No Americans in the top 10 and 6th overall in medals? Not as good as we can and should be. Look out rest of the world in March. Congrats and thanks to @Gaijingai for getting our sole Yusho.
  23. I agree. The rest is a crap shoot. For the rest of sanyaku I expect Mitakeumi, Hokutofuji, Yutakayama and Takayasu.

    Mitakeumi in 2020

    He will stay in Joi. Bounce up and down from sanyaku. May even win another yusho. But he won't put those 3 good basho together.
