    Sandanme Game Hatsu 2019

    Flohru is way ahead after 11 days! The standings are updated a couple of posts above this one. I can't remember the last time I saw my team at the very bottom of the standings!

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2019

    After about 11 days (there may be some day 12 results from the lowest divisions in there) Flohru and the drone Genzai (of most popular picks) share the lead. I've updated the standings post which can be seen a couple of posts above this one.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2019

    Genzai, the drone of most popular picks, has the lead after 8 days. Thanks to all of you for your entries. Welcome new player, Wakatake! A note to Shimodahito, we select just one rikishi from the combined Yokozuna/Okezi/Sekiwake/Komusubi ranks. 8 rikishi in total form each team. Your extra sanyaku picks could not be used.

    Sandanme Game Hatsu 2019

    This is to bump the topic. Sandanme is the only division (other than Makuuchi) with a former Ozeki! Unfortunately, Terunofuji will be kyujo again and leave this division on his way back to Maezumo, but there are still 199 other rikishi to consider! (most of them not kyujo)

    Metasumo 2019

    1-5 Pandaazuma 6-10 Gurowake 11-20 Kitakachiyama 21-40 Achiyama 41-80 Oshirokita 81-120 Itachi 121-200 Gawasukotto 201+ Hana-ichi Not sure about my 81-120 pick ...
  10. Wow, I am so surprised to have vaulted over so many competitors with a lucky result in the final days! I put more effort into my selection this year but almost finished with zero points! Thanks to Shimodahito for creating and administering this unique and dynamic contest. Congratulations to Toratorii with whom I'm honored to share the trophy.
  11. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Kyushu 2018. 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 2018

    I'm working on it! It's done, but I just need to prepare it in a proper format for presentation. Meanwhile, here are some key figures: I've administrated the last 36 basho. During that time, the top score for a yusho winner was 92 points! (Vikanohara Aki 2014) The lowest yusho winning score was 49 points! (the game's creator, Oshirokita, Hatsu 2018) The average yusho winning score during my 36 basho administation is 72.7 points (rounded to nearest tenth of a point) The top yusho winners have been Flohru (6), Tenshinhan (5), and Torafujii (4), with several players tied at 3 yusho or fewer. Flohru has also won the most jun-yusho with 8, followed by Achiyama with 6, the drone Genzai with 5, and Torafujii and Kuroimori both with 4, Gurowake with 3, and several tied with 2 or fewer.

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2018

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Kyushu 2018. 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).

    The formatting seems a bit better with Opera. Firefox just doesn't work at all for posting to the forum now, maybe I need to update it. I fixed the detailed results post. The previous post included an index column which is for internal purposes only. The win-loss records for each rikishi weren't clearly presented.
  15. Itachi

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2018

    The final standings and full results tables are posted above. The formatting is not coming out as nicely as before for some reason. Maybe it is my browser. The buttons on sumoforum for 'reply to this post' don't work for me now so I had to use Chrome. Perhaps that's the reason for the formatting losses when I paste in the tables. Anyway, congratulations to Tenshinhan on his second yusho in this game! (I had said it was his first but he also won the Nagoya basho which Ihad had trouble posting results tables for) Flohru wins the jun-yusho. I don't think I have ever prepared a tally of jun-yusho so I don't know how many he has now. I've got all the records so if I find time, I'll count them up and try to declare the numbers going forward. Thanks to everyone for playing! Itachi

    I think either something has changed with the forum or my browser, or I've just forgotten how to get the format to present correctly. Anyway, the tables are not as presentable as before but here they are with the final results (in the two posts above). Congratulations to Flohru who takes the yusho for the 6th time since I have been presenting results. Also, well done Torafujii who collects his 4th jun-yusho during that period. Thanks for playing everyone! Itachi
