    Sandanme Game Haru 2018

    Flohru has won both 2018 yusho. This time, he did it with the most group leading rikishi. He was one of only two to pick the yusho winning rikishi. He had the most wins. The only category he didn't finish first in was most kk where I was 2 rikishi ahead of him. Chishafuwaku also surpassed the yusho winner in kk with 11.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Haru 2018

    These results may be late but I've prepared the detailed results for each team again for the first time in many basho. Since I finished first (my first time as administrator), I wanted to show everyone's full lineup. I only found one yusho winner but my rikishi earned enough wins and kachikoshi to overcome that. Congratulations to Flohru for finding the most yusho winners. Several players were tied with me for most kachikoshi but no one matched me for overall wins. Thanks for playing, I look forward to competing with you next basho!

  5. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Hatsu 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.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2018!

    For Aki 2017, the lowest scores were 49 points! For Nagoya 2017, the lowest score was 58 points! Not only is 49 the lowest winning score, but it is lower than the lowest score in many of the past tournaments! I started keeping records since Hatsu 2013 and there has been no score lower than 39 during that time so we have the 7 lowest scores all happening this basho!

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2018!

    There were big gaps between 1st and 2nd best and 1st and 2nd worst scores! I wonder if 32 points is the worst ever result? Maybe 49 points could be the lowest ever winning score? Thanks to everyone for playing!

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2018!

    Above, I have posted the standings at the mid-point (after Nakabi, Day 8). Thanks for your entries everyone! I expect low scores this basho. Hakuho and Terunofuji were the most popular choices for the top division spots. Hakuho was a unanimous choice. Only 5 of us (plus the drone Genzai who takes the most popular) got stuck with the former Ozeki, Terunofuji. The other most popular choices were: Juryo - Aoiyama (half the players excluding Genzai) Makushita - top 15 ranks - Enho (7 players + Genzai) Makushita - bottom 45 ranks - Tomokaze (8 players + Genzai) Sandanme - Shoji (all but 2 players) Jonidan - Kotoseigo (7 players + Genzai) Jonokuchi - Yoshoyama (8 players + Genzai) Good luck on Day 9!

    Sandanme Game Kyushu 2017

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Kyushu 2017. 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 Kyushu 2017

    Gurowake, Chishafuwaku, and the drone Genzai all finished with the same score so they share the yusho! Chishafuwaku's extra kk compensated for the small difference in win-loss ratio. It is Gurowake's 7th yusho and Chishafuwaku's 1st. I believe it's the second time the drone Genzai has shared the yusho but I didn't not investigate fully. See you in January! Thanks for playing!
