    Hitenryu is kyujo. The players who picked him received Mukashi's pick except that the drone also favoured Hitenryu. The drone's second choice, Fukamiyama, is the replacement replacement rikishi for Hitenryu. Hitenryu/Fukamiyama would have been the most popular choice but the drone Genzai ignores default replacements and selects the most popular chosen active rikishi which was Obayama.

    Profomisakari was the only one to select a kyujo rikishi. As usual, the drone Mukashi provides the replacement. In this case, Mitakeumi replaces kyujo Kakuryu.

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2019

    Here are the competitors for the 2019 Kyushu Sandanme Game yusho: Itachi Profomisakari Houmanumi (welcome to the game!) Flohru Athenayama (welcome to the game!) Torafujii Achiyama and the usual drones, Genzai for most popular picks, and Mukashi for best scoring rikishi in the previous basho The unseen drone Mirai (who sees the future and always selects the best possible lineup) sets the pace as usual. The scores in the game are calibrated with respect to the best possible results (Mirai) so that a perfect lineup will score 15.0 even if every rikishi did not go 7-0. Thanks to everyone for your continued support of the game and thanks to our two new players for giving it a try! Now that I have entered all the lineups, I will be able to prepare results.

    This is to verify that I haven't missed any of your entries. I have 9 players' lineups entered including the drones Mukashi and Genzai, so 7 human players. If you sent me an entry but I don't list your shikona, please let me know. Lineups received and entered: Itachi Athenayama Profomisakari Torafujii Flohru Wakatake Chishafuwaku (the drone Mukashi who selects the rikishi with the best record in the previous basho) (the drone Genzai who selects the most popular choice among human players with Mukashi being the tie-breaker) Good luck everyone, and thanks for your entries!

    This is to bump the topic. There is still time to make your picks! Until the rikishi begin their bouts, entries can be accepted!

    This is to bump the topic. There is still time to send in your entries! Any rikishi who has not had a bout is eligible so even a very last minute entry is fine!

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Kyushu 2019. 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).
  13. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Kyushu 2019. 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.

    I've almost finished updating my sumogaming worksheets but the Aki Sandanme Game needs a little more work before I can publish the results tables and I must sleep now. I hope to complete that tomorrow and post invitations for the Kyusho basho. Thanks for your patience and continuing interest in these lower division games! Happy Hallowe'en! Itachi
