2017 Haru Basho - THE UNDERDOG GAME (TUG) - INVITATION

Recommended Posts

 

Hello Sumo Fans and Gamers, and Supporters of TUG,

The second Basho of 2017 is 2 weeks away! Doesn't time fly so fast?!

This Basho (although last Basho there were a few complaints) I'll continue using the private way of submitting the daily entries using a link, where the possible picks can be found. This system has been used pretty successfully during the last 5 basho. 

I want to extend the invitation to all Sumo fans and Gamers who would be curious to try The Underdog Game.

During 2017 Hatsu Basho we were only 5 Gamers short of the Goal I had set 45+ participants.

This Basho 2017 Haru I'll keep the same Goal. Hope we'll achieve it this time. 

CAN WE DO IT?

As soon as the first official daily Torikumi becomes available I'll Post the TUG Torikumi and a Link, where you can make your selection of your MAIN pick for Day 1, as well as your BACK-UP pick.

NOTE: The back-up pick has to be different from your main pick and it will be used in case your main pick wins by FUSEN (see the Game Rules below).

The Daily Torikumi and the Standings Tables will be posted on Sumoforum.

You can find the Rules of TUG in one of the next threads.

Best Regards and I hope to see more participants in TUG during 2017 Haru Basho,

Achiyama

Here is the link with the Registration Form, where you can declare your Status:

1.) Play during 2017 Haru Basho, or

2.) Ask for KOSHO (absence with keeping your rank in the Banzuke for 2017 Natsu).

Gamers, who are on TUG Banzuke, and don't officially ask for KOSHO will have a KYUJO status, which will not keep their ranks.

Thank you, Benihana, for liking TUG after you tried it last Basho.

What is the Question? Can you be more specific?

You mention kekka points for Y/O promotion and only there. I can't figure out, what a kekka point is.

Ah, OK.

As you know playing TUG game you achieve points, according to the daily TUG Torikumi, where you choose your picks for the day.

After the completion of the Basho these points have to be transferred into Kekka format, which gives how many wins and losses would correspond to the achieved points.

So the Kekka format determines KK-MK point (Kachekishi (more than or equal to 8 wins) and Makekoshi (less than 7 wins) and it looks like:

15-0

14-1

13-2

12-3 

11-4

10-5

9-6

8-7

************

7-8

6-9

5-10

4-11

3-12

2-13

1-14

0-15

Gamers with KK are usually promoted at the next Basho Banzuke, while those with MK are demoted.

The kekka points (# of wins) are used for the Banzuke making.

Hope this gives some clarity?!

As many of you know the Sumo Reference database was not posted until late Friday and as I am using this database for my automated version to calculate TUG Torikumi with the points this delay was the reason for not posting the Entry Form till now.

As I just saw that the database is posted I am starting working on the Torikumi.

I'll do my best to post the Entry Form by noon PST.

Sorry for any inconveniencies!
