    Just a quick question, has anyone noticed there are 2 days left?

    Potential New Game

    Sounds like late Fantasy Sumo (where one point was awarded for win) or current Rotosumo (where points are awarded based on the oponents rank) - see

    They will start doing it as soon as former rikishi start to sue Kyokai for damages after retirement, just like former NFL players did for long-lasting effects of brain injuries. Until then... rikishi are adults and are responsible for their own actions, n'est-ce pas?

    My guess is that maegashira meet yokozuna more often that participate in musubi no ichiban, but if they enter the last fight of the day, then it is usually with yokozuna...

    It was my first thought in live speed that there is some lesson in giving, but then in slow-motion it seemed in the flow - in the moment of final push Endo was still in, even if compromised. The run was more funny in slow motion as well, passionate hops...

    Indeed, those crumbs were majority of my Masters points in 2019. I was seriously neglecting keiko this year... so we will see in 2020.

    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.

    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.
