    Sandanme Game Natsu 2019

    I've updated the standings for Day 13. Flohru has a solid lead. I have a lot of competition in the Jun-yusho race.

    Sandanme Game Natsu 2019

    The Sandanme Game will run again for Natsu 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).

    Pick The Yusho Winners - Natsu 2019

    I've replaced the Day 9 standings with Day 13 (see above) Wakatake has a strong lead going into the final two days. I didn't look to see if any yusho have been decided so it's possible that there are some uncounted points.
  4. This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Natsu 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.

    Pick The Yusho Winners - Natsu 2019

    Here (above) are the standings after 9 days. Where someone had picked a rikishi who is kyujo, I replaced them with Mukashi's pick (the rikishi who scored best in the preivous basho). Thank you for your continued interest in this game and thanks for your patience! ... where's the other drone? I forgot to add Genzai, the drone of most popular picks. I will correct that soon. Done. Genzai has been factored in.

    Sandanme Game Hatsu 2019

    Flohru is way ahead and will surely win the yusho. Torafujii also looks sure to win the jun-yusho as 3rd place Achiyama is quite far behind. It looks like I cannot be displaced at the opposite end of the standings

    Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2019

    It looks like the drone of most popular picks, Genzai, will win the yusho. Torafujii can move into a tie and share the yusho if Ikioi wins tonight and Kaisei does not.
