    Turn The Tide - Banzuke Kyushu 2021

    I didn't really think I was in the chase either at 2-behind with a terrible tiebreaker, but I ended up missing the yusho by 1 win after losing on an almost unlosable day 14.

    Yeah, I know I shouldn't be worried about the part that's not under my control. I'm really just upset with myself because I originally 360 windmill dunked on the Takanosho button, then came back and flipped it back and forth until I convinced myself I could pick Abi.

    Gaaaah. If the leader in ISP had gotten day 14 wrong, I would've 110% taken Takanosho and yusho'd today. The last time I was in position to do the same thing, I had to take a pretty hopeless Tochinoshin vs Takanosho that tanked my finishing position.
  4. Is this the right place to complain about my first world problems? I managed to lose a fair amount of points and the chance to yusho in TTT today after staring at a wall of extremely strong choices for 10 minutes and picking the only losing option, even though it was the one I was least confident in myself! After 4 days of not betting in Odd, I thought I was safe to try a bet. Surely nobody would be aiming to hit a big bet that falls just short of me, right? Nope, I lost 3 and now trail sukubidubidu by 1. Lost points in Toto too. Had to be crushing the day but finished poorly, including an indefensible Shodai pick that pushed me just below the line. Won ISP. Just unfortunate that the leader also did to stay 2 ahead. I've got the best tiebreaker but can only shoot for a big tied 2nd now. On the plus side, took control of Quad. Also, despite a poor day, I think I can still nick a good amount of SCS points if Takakeisho is denied a share of the jun-yusho and Ura wins a special prize. Some of the people above me currently don't even have Terunofuji.

    Shohozan lost to Abi (27) too. I believe he's 0-3 in the Special Q. Still too few opponents for me. Edit - It looks like you did notice that before. Probably just a mistake in the last post then.

    Oh well. I've completely lost the plot these past 3 days. I don't think I'll be picking much correctly from here on out.

    I definitely did a few fist pumps over Odd Sumo last night. Hope the lead holds up this time!

    And what a fine time for it to happen... I knew it was trouble when I saw those Hoshoryu and Shimanoumi odds. I would've hit a bigger bet too if I weren't leading. Pretty miserable day for me. In each game (Toto, Quad, TTT, S-G) I made one close, wrong decision that cost me. I had them all in my hands, and the right picks seem kind of obvious, but I blew it. I'll settle for winning any yusho at this point.

    If I were judging, he'd still be on track for it...

    Agree, and with the way things are shaping up so far, I'd be pretty surprised if 5 wins doesn't save him also. It looks like there's gonna be more supply than demand for makuuchi slots next time.
  11. No, I get it. It's a lot easier to lose points than gain them from this position.
  12. Pretty cool basho so far, right guys? I'm unfortunately not eligible for points in Bench and Sumo Game yet, but doing well there too (3-0, just dropped to 2nd in MCP and 3-0, tied for most points). I'd be tied first in Bingo if not for swapping Daieisho out for Yutakayama when the Tochinoshin news broke. Hopefully he can start acquiring actual wins on the dohyo. But having a bunch of potential points on day 3 is a lot different from actually having points in the bank. I'm reminding myself I should be pretty happy if I retain enough to finish the year in the top 10.

    Abi can already settle question 13 tomorrow with his 3rd win from shonichi!

    I need to see a sports psychologist about my Chain Gang performance. I must subconsciously want to lose.

    I had a pretty excellent day 1 in every game. Took a nice lead in Odd and won everywhere, including defeating a 10-man GBL by Doitsuyama Rule.

    If you still need help, the 'Makunouchi Saiko Yusho rikishi' is the rikishi who ultimately wins the yusho, and you're answering whether the first person to defeat them is awarded a Sansho.

    You mean seconds, not minutes.
  18. I have the opposite problem. Oh wait, I guess mine isn't really a problem.
  19. I definitely didn't nail it, but 63. The things I got wrong weren't surprising.

    Hi Susanoo-san, I'm not sure what happened but I picked the Yusho question correctly and didn't get the points awarded. My entry list shows the correct pick. Unfortunately, I'll still miss top 10 due to Endo not receiving sansho. That, and my horrible active rikishi picks!

    Pretty much crapped the bed in UDH after sharing the lead for the first time after day 14. But that's fine because I'm sure I just won Oracle again. You might think that would translate into more overall success, but you'd be wrong. Still, pretty happy about this one!

    I see you're about as lucky as I am in Sumo Game, Now aiming for Makuuchi in 2023...

    I felt like I really knew what was going on for the first 9 days, but every day now is not only hurting my chances, but my feelings as well.

    Daieisho beat all 4 foreign opponents he faced!

    I'd post more but I feel like it'd mostly be me whining about anything unlucky that happens. I think I've had a really good read on this basho. It's just little mistakes everywhere that have me around the back of the top 10s instead of winning anything. Also I checked POG off my list of games I needed to enter and then realized on day 3 that I hadn't actually entered. It's probably the best game to skip, but I think I would've had my best result in it this time. 7-0 in Bench though, let's goooo!
