Makushita Game Natsu 2007

Recommended Posts

Welcome to another round of the Makushita Game!

Feel free to participate, there's still lots of space in Makuuchi division.

The deadline is shonichi 8 AM JST.

==================================

Here are the rules in short form:

1) Slice the Makushita banzuke into 15 equal brackets (ms1-ms4, ms5-ms8 etc.).

2) Pick one rikishi from each bracket.

3) Send your selection via the entry form (thanks to Gusoyama)

4) Done.

As a handy reference, here is a link to the current banzuke (all divisions), kindly compiled by Doitsuyama.

Here are detailed rules for the rule-minded:

1) You collect win points for your picked rikishi, and these win points will be converted into a win-loss record. If a rikishi gets 4 wins in a basho, this will give 0.5 win point to a player's tally. Every additional win of a rikishi adds another 0.5 win point, so a 7-0 rikishi will net 2 win points. The sum total of win points across 15 rikishi is the win-loss record for a player (if necesseary it will be rounded up or down based on banzuke requirements).

2) The player with the most win points gets the yusho. In case of a tie, brackets will be compared pair-wise (in descending order down the banzuke) until a winner can be determined.

3) Sansho prizes are awarded as follows (all sansho require a KK):

3a) Shukun-sho for the player who picked the yusho winner. In case of a tie, other 7-0 rikishi will be compared, followed by 6-1 rikishi in descending order etc., until a winner can be determined.

3b) Kanto-sho for the player whose rikishi have netted the most wins.

3c) Gino-sho: for the player with the most unusual picks - total sum of (wins of a rikishi divided by number of players who picked him).

4) If a player cannot participate in a basho, this will be counted as a 7-8 record (no kosho application necessary). The second consecutive kyujo basho will be counted as 0-0-15, and the third kyujo in a row leads to the retirement of the player.

5) Kyujo rikishi: in all likelihood players will be informed about kyujo rikishi once they are announced. Players can change their picks accordingly. Because there is little time between kyujo announcements and the start of the basho, players are allowed to replace a kyujo rikishi with a 0-0 rikishi or 0-1 rikishi until day 2 of the basho (8 AM JST).

6) Promotions (these rules might change):

6a) Guaranteed promotion to komusubi: 9-6 for M1, 10-5 for M2, 11-4 for M3, etc.

6b) Guaranteed promotion to sekiwake: 9-6 for K1, 10-5 for Haridashi Komusubi, 11-4 for M1, 12-3 for M2, 13-2 for M3 etc.

6c) Ozeki promotion requirements: three double-digit KK in a row; Sekiwake rank at the crucial third basho; 34 wins from three basho in case of a shin-Sekiwake (33 wins for an experienced Sekiwake).

6d) Yokozuna promotion: Two consecutive yusho and overall good manners.

Hi, unfortunately this basho I'll be unable to inform you personally about kyujo rikishi. I'll be without internet access from Saturday 6 AM JST for about 48 hours. So please check your entries carefully. Obviously, the same thing applies to Banzuke Surfing.

Good game, and thanks for running it! But, boy, it seems especially hard making selections this basho. For example, the group from Ms41 thru Ms 44 has 5 guys who've gone kachi-koshi for 3 straight tournaments. Not that I've ever seen any of them!

I'm also finding it extremely hard to make decisions in the game that I invented -- the UDH. It's actually fun to be outdone by so many people at that! Anyway, thanks for this simple pleasure, and good luck to all!

I'm just trying to keep up with the 48 hrs that I've been away from the computer on the weekend.

We have 35 entries this basho. Welcome to three shin-deshi (abudisake, Hidariashiyama, and ulsimitsuki)!

So there won't be many selection stats this time around. The most unusual picks were made by Fay (she beat me to my weird squat). By far the most average picks were compiled by Susanoo.

And here are the standings after 2 days:

With Daishoyu, Shimoda, and Gagamaru three of the more popular picks (all picked by 10 or more players) already lost their first bout. On the top we have a trio consisting of Meyeryu, Randomitsuki, and Zeokage. kadoban-Ozeki Doitsuyama is off to a terrible start, so he better start the engines going from now on.

OK, at least one mistake was already spotted by watchful eyes. I had Maeta as a winner in my data sheets when in fact he was losing. As a consequence, scoring is even lower, and Meyeryu is not on the top anymore. Here are the corrected (but maybe not correct) standings after day 2:

Standings after day 4:

Thanks to the great "Banzuke Central" feature of our Forum it is even easier for me to get the Makushita results than before. In any case, I still enter data into my sheets manually, so errors might occur. This is especially true today where I have slept too little.

Chiyonohana has joined the participant list. He sent an entry through other means than the nice entry form, and it got lost meanwhile.

About the standings: Records are still very low, and nobody has reached KK territory yet. Randomitsuki is closest to doing so while Zeokage, Kaihayaiha, and Meyeryu are in pursuit.

Standings after day 6:

Currently Makushita is lacking stars and obvious picks. The general spread of rikishi (103 out of 120 were picked) was a first sign of our cluelessness. This is further substantiated by the fact that after six days not a single player has crossed the KK line. Maybe Asashosakari and his empire of historical MsGame stats can enlighten us as to whether such a thing has happened before.

My squad has taken a nosedive, especially yesterday when they went something like 1-10 or so. As a consequence, we have a new player on top of the scoreboard, viz. Kaihayaiha. In second place there's a tie between four sanyaku players.

Amazing, my squad went 9-6 and I actually lost a quarter point. (Laughing...)

This is further substantiated by the fact that after six days not a single player has crossed the KK line. Maybe Asashosakari and his empire of historical MsGame stats can enlighten us as to whether such a thing has happened before.

Not sure whether to be happy or sad; my team went 7-8 but I still picked up a full point. Of course, that means I'm pretty much playing the rest of the basho with a 10-deck as five guys are 1-3 or 0-4 now...

My crystal ball says I'll finish with 6.5 points. I suppose I'll cheer on my fellow Ozeki the rest of the way.

Standings after day 10:

We continue with extremely low scoring. After 10 days only two players are in KK territory. These are the two Ozeki hopes Azumaryu and yours truly. While Azumaryu would need an impossible 14-1 record, the bar for me is considerably lower. Before the basho I said that a 9-6 might be enough for promotion. Given the low scoring my current record of 9-6 would certainly suffice. But it's still a long way to go. This also holds for the current Ozeki. kadoban-Ozeki Doitsuyama moves closer to the KK line, but some extra effort is definitely needed to avoid demotion.

Standings after day 12:

In terms of KK/MK distribution this basho still looks like a very lop-sided affair. Only four players are on the better side of -koshi right now.

I am still leading in yusho and all sansho categories. As of now, I would even meet the strictest criteria for Ozeki promotion (double digits in three basho).

Neko has now moved into second place while Ganzohnesushi sneaks into third.

kadoban-Ozeki Doitsuyama now has a good chance to avoid demotion. His 12 remaining rikishi need a 7-5 or better to change from MK to KK.

It will be much more difficult for Ozeki Asashosakari to escape kadoban. His remaining 11 rikishi would need at least an 8-3 record in the last few days.

I'm toast. My picks Sugita and Tamamitsukuni meet tomorrow, and I think Daishoma and Kotoyutaka will meet, too. So I'd require 6-1 in the remaining bouts.

Standings after day 13:

It seems as if the yusho is almost decided. But in fact, I don't believe that's true. While a have a 1.5 point cushion, and there are only 4 rikishi left for me (and all fight tomorrow!), I have the nagging feeling that all four of them will lose tomorrow (Hoshihikari in Juryo, Towanoyama against Shimoda, Yakigaya against Tamawashi, and Kaonishiki against Fukunaga). If this will become true, I will finish with 8.5 points, a score that several players could still achieve.

Hey, but the good news for me is that I will finish at least 9-6. And given the low scoring in this basho, I can announce that this is enough for an Ozeki promotion. Congrats to myself!! (Sigh...)

Neko is in second place, and he has eight rikishi left (six of them are fighting tomorrow). On third place we have a tie between Flohru (5 left) and Tamanaogijima (7 left). For now, Fay has crossed the KK line, and since she was the only one to pick yusho winner Wakakirin, this would be a guaranteed shukun-sho (if she gets a KK). Fay also has the lead in gino-sho standings.

While Ozeki Asashosakari is now officially toast (and kadoban), life hasn't become easier for kadoban-Ozeki Doitsuyama. His remaining 7 rikishi must go at least 5-2 in order to have a shot at KK. But taking a look at the opponents I think that most of his team members are favored in their last bout. We'll see.

Well, I predicted my non-paired rikishi for 3-1 today, and they ended up going 1-3 with the only winner being the guy I had figured as a loser...

In two words: Makushita sucks. (Applauding...)

Congrats to our new Ozeki, BTW. (Nodding yes...) (Now, maybe you'll let my 36-win Ozeki run remain standing atop...)

Standings after day 14:

I can be happy that there are no daily Makushita games... Yesterday I predicted that my remaining guys would go 0-4 when in fact they finished 3-1. This gives me a final score of 10-5, the yusho, and the Ozeki promotion. :-)

Tamanaogijima and Flohru are the only other players who are guaranteed to finish with a KK. The torikumi for senshuraku aren't out yet, but Tamaasuka will meet Hokutokuni so that Flohru will only win or lose a quarter point.

Sakana needs one win from his three rikishi to finish KK. Neko needs one out of two. Azumaryu and Oshirokita face a higher hurdle, needing two out of three. Fay and Ganzohnesushi need two out of two, and Takamueda has an outside chance for KK if his remaining four guys win.

Unfortunately, Doitsuyama does not appear in KK hopefuls anymore, and after two consecutive MK he will be demoted to Sekiwake.

In the shukun-sho race Tamanaogijima leads by virtue of picking Kirinowaka. However, if both Tamaasuka and Kakuo win tomorrow, Fay will get the shukun-sho.

I will get the kanto-sho for having 64 wins among my team.

For the gino-sho a similar situation applies as with the shukun-sho - while I currently lead here, Fay will overtake me if she gets KK.

Oh my...average score still just 6.06 points. This may end up worse than the very first test run when nobody knew what they were doing yet...

Final Standings Natsu 2007:

Senshuraku was like Christmas for all KK prospects. Yesterday I named seven players who were on the brink of KK. And all of them, even Takamueda (who needed four wins out of four bouts) actually made it. With both Sakaizawa and Tochinoshin winning, almost every player got a final boost in the standings.

That being said, Tamanaogijima gets the jun-yusho while Flohru is tied for third place with Oshirokita. The two open sansho (shukun, gino) went to Fay. Her gino-sho score is probably the highest ever scored. She got full 7 points for Wakakirin, 3 points for Kirinowaka, Sotenzan, and Kakureizan, 2-5 points for Kakuo, 2 points for Kiozan, and some minor debris points.

Nagoya Banzuke 2007:

When I did an interim banzuke after day 12 we still had a complete sanyaku washout. In other words, it was a neat Nagoya Banzuke with two Ozeki, two Sekiwake, and two Komusubi. Due to the surge in records, particularly on senshuraku, this was not feasible anymore because there would have been a huge jam in joi-jin. Therefore we still have a high number of komusubi rikishi with Itachi and Chiyonohana even staying Komusubi with a MK.

The only promotion candidate for Nagoya is Doitsuyama who will regain Ozeki status with a double-digit record.

And here I thought I was radical and daring to think of a reduction from 12 to 9 sanyaku at that point...six?!

At any rate, while I contemplate that idea, congrats to our MsGame rijicho for filling up the Makuuchi division. (Scratching chin...)
