    Pick The Yusho Winners Nagoya 2018

    Grabbed the data too late to avoid inclusion of some Day 3 results. It looks like all the Jonokuchi and Jonidan Day 3 results are in this but nothing yet for Sandanme.

    There is still time to submit your entries! There are only a few kyujo rikishi in Sandanme but a couple of them are popular so please check it.

    Sandanme Game Natsu 2018

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Natsu 2018. 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 nmatsuo@shaw.ca before any of your selections enter the dohyo for their match (and preferably a few hours before that).

    Sandanme Game Natsu 2018

    This was a close one! I had a slightly better win/loss ratio including one more win and one fewer losses. Flohru had one more kk, but I had one more group leader. In the end, it was Flohru's best scoring rikishi that brought him the yusho. Flohru was the only one to select Sandanme yusho winner, Karatsuumi!
  12. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Natsu 2018.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: nmatsuo@shaw.ca 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.

    Work in progress! I have recorded your entries and done some updates but I have a little more work to do before I can publish the results. I hope to find time to finish that before next weekend. If not, I will complete it next weekend for sure! Thank you for playing and thanks for your patience.

    Sandanme Game Haru 2018

    And here are the detailed results. A couple of players needed replacement rikishi. If you see a rikishi you didn't select, it should match the drone Mukashi's pick for that section. Even Mukashi needed a replacement as Chiyoraizan was a late kyujo for his first match.
