  1. Games Talk Nagoya 2018

    It probably never happened that I am leading for a day two different games, S4 and Fantasy of all. In the basho when I skipped most pre-basho games as well as Bench due to vacations. A day for history, tomorrow is another day.
  2. SalaryCap Sumo Haru 2018

    (emphasis in quotation by me) I definitely support this now, in the situation when clear yusho candidates are not very expensive. Back in Hakuho domination days, picking him meant half of budget out. It was actually possible to gamble on set of surprise winners (and I had some good basho long time ago with this approach too, if I remember correctly). But now, when single competing yokozuna cost less than 100 and even previous yusho winner as well as competitive Oe both less than 300, it was enough to use 550 for trio Kakuryu, Takayasu, Tochinoshin. Obviously, I have put Kakuryu on 8 as both Takayasu and Tochinoshin looked more solid, but this did not do so much damage. Otherwise, I had an incredible amount of luck. I am basing my Salarycap sumo predictions on relationship between my Oracle predictions and Salarycap costs. As you can find, my Oracle result is very bad, as usual. Yet this time, most of my other choices outperformed my (mostly wrong) expectations: Kaisei 12 - 9 (at 6), Abi 10 - 8 (at 5), Tochiozan 5 - 10, (at 7), Yutakayama 10 - 7 (at 4). All in all, to win you need either deep understanding of what is going on or large amount of good luck. I had a bit of former and a lot of latter. Not expected next time, but let's celebrate now.
  3. SalaryCap Sumo Haru 2018

    Correct, thank you!
  4. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Forum Board turned into mere chat, as I see it here. Not good. Well, if admins read this, I complain. You know, I appreciate for many years the excellent and information rich service provided by many members, with insights, polemics, speculations, fun, it is all fine for me. Even one liners can be on point. But this is ridiculous.
  5. Metasumo 2018

    1 to 5 Gurowake 6 to 10 Norizo 11 to 20 Andonishiki 21 to 40 Andoreasu 41 to 80 Bill 81 to 120 Ruziklao 121 to 200 Getayukata 201 + Tsupparitaro Finally, thanks to very bad 2017, it makes sense to include myself in the selection as I am sure I am able to get more... and so I motivate myself!
  6. Games Bugs

    TTT entry page at http://turnthetide.sumogames.de/Entry.aspx is not working for me. Do I do something wrong or is it down for everybody?
  7. Bench Sumo news

    It worked for me, e-mail confirmation received too.
  8. How long have you been interested in sumo?

    Around 2002, while sharing a flat with friends, one of them introduced me to Eurosport coverage of honbasho. It was soo weird, but so interesting... so I started to read a lot about sumo wherever I could. A few basho later I was hooked and enjoyed every one of basho digests. And rest is history...
  9. Bench Sumo Quiz Part 2 (of 5)

    Just as I read this Terarno's complaint, I wanted to point that there are many people not nominated at all. But then came the very last question in the 5th part and I have found it rather flattering that someone might consider me as a person possibly sharing some positive record with Randomitsuki (one has already voted for me, and no, I was not the one). Sorry...
  10. Aki Masters 2017

    Does this make sense? For this basho, being very short of time, I skipped all preparations of reading training reports and most of pre-basho games, entering only a few. During basho I had not enough time to watch or read almost anything, doing predictions only based on latest results and gut feeling. Yet, 21st place in Masters this time... maybe the basho was totally Wacky after all.
  11. Hatsu 2017 - Promo and Days 1-15

    Sokokurai was literally dancing with Kaisei in mid part of the bout, it looked like foxtrot.
  12. Why I have read Buratinosato? Ah, I see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buratino
  13. Fantasy Metasumo 2017

    1: Gurowake - while the first place is not ensured by any means, a lot of points are safe if participation is regular 2: Norizo - after poor years something much better would come 3: Andoreasu - another player to strike back soon 4: Flohru - although I am by chance placed in this backet, chosing giant of gaming should probably yield much more points 5: Gonzaburow - as many top 10 finishes as I had, just for a less value 6: Chocshoporyu - I have a feeling 2017 would be much better 7: Getayukata - clearly playing a lot of games, so some points are inevitable 8: Sherlockiama - no need to explain
  14. Bench Sumo news

    Sanyaku! If somebody would predict that after day 7, score 2-5 and horrible points until the point...
  15. 2016.9 Norizo Cup [PLAN]

    Hm. It looks like you are hinting there is no prestige in winning Norizo Cup, aren't you?
