    Some things get compressed on shonichi to allow time for opening day ceremonies and events.

    For the last three bashos, I have found only sporadic sumo coverage on qq. Do you have a URL for a qq link that provides consistent sumo streaming?

Without match 1, there are 12 X's spread across 8 matches. Let's get this thing going! Edit: Adjustments made due to a bunch of typos made for one of our players. The eagle-eyed Professor caught me again.

    21 Kyushu 18, The Picks

    It has been a while since we published the set of rules for the 21 game: Game 21 Rules and Procedures. 1. Approximately 2 weeks before the start of each Ozumo hon-basho, the game administrators will post on the Sumo Forum, a list of 21 matches that may occur during the basho. The matches will be numbered 1 through 21 and will contain the shikona of the two rikishi, labeled A and B, that might participate in the match. 2. Each potentially active makuuchi rikishi will be assigned to one match. If it is known before match publication that one or more of the 42 makuuchi rikishi may not participate in the basho, one or more makuuchi rikishi may be assigned two matches, or one or more matches between two juryo rikishi may be included in the list of 21 matches. 3. The game participants shall post on the Sumo Forum, a list their choices for the winner of each match by entering the match number and either A or B. If the participant decides that the match will not occur during the basho, an entry of the match number and an X will be made. 4. Only one entry is permitted for a forum member. If a member submits entries using more that one shikona, all entries for that member will be disqualified. 5. The deadline for entry submission shall be 5:00 AM JST on the Friday before the start of the basho. Original entries can be made or modified until the deadline. No new or modified entries will be accepted after the deadline. 6. The game winner shall be the participant who makes the most correct responses for the 21 matches. Note: If the match does not appear on any torikumi, X is the correct response. 6a. Kettei-sen (playoff) results will be counted only if the two rikishi do not meet in a regular match during the basho. 7. In the event of a tie for the most correct responses, the participant with the FEWEST number of other participant responses matching the participant's responses is the winner. If two or more participants have the same number of correct responses and the same number of matching responses, the participant with the earliest entry is the winner. A modification of an entry constitutes a new time of entry for tiebreaker purposes. 8. Fusen wins are counted as a win for the rikishi who won, not as an X. 9. If a rikishi in a match withdraws or is withdrawn for the entire basho, all entries for that match shall be judged as correct, even if the rikishi is listed in the Day 1 and/or Day 2 torikumi. ((This rule overrides all provisions of rules 6 and 8.))

    21 Kyushu 18, The Picks

    Welcome to the 21 game for Kyushu 18. The game is a simple pre-basho game in which you are given 21 matchups that may occur in the next basho. Your job is to decide whether each match will occur, and, if so, who will win it. Normally, each of the 42 makuuchi rikishi will be found in one and only one match; however, Hakuho is questionable for Kyushu, so Ikioi has been submitted for 2 matches. The matchups are selected on the basis of closeness in rank and the closeness in win-loss records. The intent is to select 21 of the least predictable matches. Entries are submitted as posts in this topic. Each match will have two rikishi labeled “A” and “B”. For each match, enter the match number and either A or B for your selected winner. If you do not think the match will occur, enter an “X”. For example: 1. A 2. X 3. B ... The winner is the entry with the most correct answers. (X counts.) If one of the rikishi for a match does not appear on the dohyo for the entire basho, that match will be counted as correct for all entries. An entry other than A, B or X will be counted as incorrect. If two or more entrants have the same number of correct picks, the one having the FEWEST other entrants making each of those correct picks will be the leader. If the agreement counts are equal, the entrant with the earliest time of entry will be the leader. Entry deadline is 2 days before shonichi at 05:00 AM (JST) on Friday, November 9. No new entries or entry modifications will be accepted after the deadline. Here are the 21 matches for Kyushu 18. The numbers in parens are the the results of the most recent matches between the two. Kyushu 18 A B 1 Y1w Kakuryu (1-1) Y2e Kisenosato 2 O1e Goeido (3-2) O2w Tochinoshin 3 Sw Ichinojo (2-3) O1w Takayasu 4 Se Mitakeumi (3-2) Ke Takakeisho 5 M1w Hokutofuji (0-1) Kw Kaisei 6 M1e Myogiryu (1-0) M3w Ryuden 7 M3e Nishikigi (0-1) M2e Tochiozan 8 M2w Tamawashi (3-3) M4w Yoshikaze 9 M5w Asanoyama (0-0) M4e Shodai 10 M5e Chiyotairyu (0-0) M6e Takanoiwa 11 M7e Abi (2-2) M6w Kagayaki 12 M9e Kotoshogiku (3-2) M7w Shohozan 13 M8e Ikioi (2-2) M8w Takarafuji 14 M8e Ikioi (1-2) M11w Okinoumi 15 M9w Daieisho (1-1) M10e Sadanoumi 16 M11e Chiyonokuni (1-2) M10w Yutakayama 17 M12e Aoiyama (0-0) M12w Endo 18 M13e Onosho (1-0) M13w Takanosho 19 M14e Chiyoshoma (0-0) M15e Daiamami 20 M16w Chiyomaru (2-2) M14w Daishomaru 21 M16e Arawashi (1-1) M15w Meisei Each match must appear on a separate line in your entry. Use shift-enter to avoid double-spacing.
  13. Do you have the names of any of the participants? I may have known some of them.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    He will have about 3 weeks to heal. That is likely enough for endoscopy. He will, however, have reduced training time to prepare for the next basho. He also seems to be inclined to flip off the NSK of late (with some justification). He may be medically ready to start the basho, but will he be physically and mentally ready to do it?
