Pick The Yusho Winners! Kyushu 2015

Recommended Posts

This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Kyushu 2015.

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)

Maegashira

Juryo

Upper Makushita (Ms1-15 ) (not including any tsukedashi of any rank)

Lower Makushita (Ms16-60 plus tsukedashi if any - including Ms 10 or 15)

Sandanme

Jonidan

Jonokuchi


That'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 forum

As 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.

You forgot my wins and losses in the standings.

Thanks for pointing that out.

I found the problem and fixed the tables.

The tables are updated for Day 14.

Profomisakari leads Flohru by one point going into the final day.

There are 3 of us who are 3 points behind Flohru. It's unlikely that any of us could finish atop the standings now.

Flohru and Profomisakari don't have many bouts left to distinguish themselves.

Profo can gain points with wins by Shohozan and Sakae. Also, a yusho by Shohozan and Kotozensho would help keep him keep ahead of Flohru.

Flohru has only Takayasu and Kaito to help him. He will need both those while Profo gets nothing to finish with the yusho.

Good luck on the final day!

The tables are updated with the final standings.

Congratulations to Profomisakari who wins the yusho - his 1st since I've been administering the game!

Flohru finished one point behind and collects the jun-yusho. I haven't counted his yusho and jun-yusho but I know he has earned several of them.

Flohru and Gurowake tied for the most correct yusho picks at just 2 each.

The drone of best performers from last basho, Mukashi, finished ahead of the drone of most popular picks, Genzai which is unusual. Collectively, we did not have a very successful basho.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed competing with you again. Thanks for playing - I look forward to greeting you again in January!

Congrats, Profomisakari! After having a look at the selections at about day 10, I thought I had my 8th yusho in the bag already - but Sato let me down and Shohozan did the job (what a great pick, Profo!), so I happily settle for my 5th jun-yusho.

Thank you, friends!

It's my first win at all in this game.

I knew, Shodai and Shohozan would do a good work.

But how they this did, has me surprised.

Thank you, my team!

A small correction was made - I had missed Torafujii's replacement pick, Homarenishiki, and given him the default.

It doesn't make much difference in the standings but I wanted to post the accurate records for that team.
