    Sandanme Game Hatsu 2021

    There are 7 human players along with the usual drones for this basho. That's one more than the PTYW Game which is unusual. Thanks for your continuing support for this game everyone! Returning player, Wolfgangho, had a few kyujo rikishi to replace and also a couple of instances of picking two rikishi from the same group and none from another group (2 for 31-35 but none for 36-40 and 2 for 81-90 but none for 91-100) . That resulted in 4 replacements with the selections of the drone Mukashi. Good luck everyone!

    There are just 6 human players this basho along with the usual 2 drones. There were 2 automatic replacements of kyujo rikishi: Profomisakari had picked Hokuseiho, replaced with Mukashi's pick, Roga. Chishafuwaku had picked Ishii, replaced with Mukashi's pick, Nogami. Thanks to everyone for your continuing support for this game!

    Sandanme Game Hatsu 2021

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Hatsu 2021. Please note the change in email address at the end of this post. I can still receive your messages at my shaw address but I'm transitioning to the gmail one. I have been very close to giving this game a kyujo for a few basho now but since some of you continue to take the time to send me entries, I feel compelled to keep it going. There may be a delay in getting the results to you but I will set up the game, record your entries, and compile and present the results. Hopefully, I can catch up on the banzuke making as well. Thanks for your patience and continuing interest in the game!Here is the usual invitation:For the Sandanme Game, please send me your list of 15 rikishi from the usual segments of the banzuke.Sd 1-5/6-10/11-15/16-20/21-25/26-30/31-35/36-40/41-45/46-5051-60/61-70/71-80/81-90 and 91-100+ (91-100 including tsukedashi if any)Your rikishi earn points for each win, for a kachikoshi record, for leading their group, and a bonus for the best scoring rikishi on each team based on how close they were to the yusho winning record. The result is adjusted so that the best possible score gets a 15-0 result.The drone Mirai knows the future and always selects the best rikishi in each group. This shows us what the best possible score would be at each stage of the game.The drone Genzai picks the most popular rikishi from each group. This drone has tended to score well.The drone Mukashi picks the rikishi in each group who had the best record last basho. This drone isn't expected to score well but sometimes surprises us.Send your entries to me at matsuorussellj@gmail.com before any of your selections enter the dohyo for their match (and preferably a few hours before that).
  10. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Hatsu 2021. Please note the change in email address at the end of this post. I can still receive your messages at my shaw address but I'm transitioning to the gmail one.Until further notice, the game will run just as it has the last several times. I will compile the results and post them as best as I can on this thread.This is a pre-basho game where each player selects a rikishi from each of 8 sections of the banzuke. The player earns points for each win, each kachikoshi, and each yusho earned by their team of 8 rikishi. The sections of the banzuke are these:Sanyaku (Y through K)MaegashiraJuryoUpper Makushita (Ms1-15 ) (not including any tsukedashi of any rank)Lower Makushita (Ms16-60 plus tsukedashi if any - including Ms 10 or 15)Sandanme (plus tsukedashi if any)JonidanJonokuchiThat's it! Simple to understand, difficult to master. The hallmarks of any engaging game.Please send your 8 selections to me before the beginning of action on Shonichi.Itachi: matsuorussellj@gmail.com or by pm here at the forumAs a reminder, I am only a temporary caretaker of this game until Oshirokita can address the reconstruction of his system. All banzuke, website, and records updates will be on hold until then but the game itself and results postings will continue here on this thread.´╗┐Good luck with your picks.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Kyushu 2020

    This has been the 46th basho of PTYW since I have been running it. Thanks to everyone for playing! I corrected my statement about the number of Yusho in 2020 for Chishafuwaku. They won 3 out of 5. The other 2 were Aki 2019 and Natsu 2016. Chisha-zeki did have a part in a 4th 2020 yusho though, since the drone of most popular picks, Genzai, won the Haru basho this year. Wakatake now has a jun-yusho to go with their yusho from Natsu last year.

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2020

    The 84th basho for the Sandanme Game has concluded. Thanks to everyone for playing! The drone Genzai, of most popular picks, has won the yusho for the 4th time. 2 of those were shared yusho, tied with two human players. The only other time Genzai won outright was for the Nagoya 2009 tournament! Gonzaburow was the jun-yusho winner and best human player that time.
