Day 13:

Another day with only one new outcome, this time the continuation of shin-juryo Asanoyama's KK streak. No significant changes in the standings as everyone bar Holleshoryu predicted that correctly.

Several 4-KK applicants were in action, though, all of them with negative results. Youngsters Kurahashi and Haruminato dropped to 3-4 in sandanme, as did highly regarded Mongolian prospect Asahiryu in mid-makushita, for his career-first makekoshi.

 

Day 14:

Now we're talking. No less than six results came in on the penultimate day, and in ballot order they were: MK for Hokutofuji, KK for Yamaguchi, MK for Goshi, KK for Takemasa, KK for Tamawashi, and MK for Ryuden. Whew.

The biggest surprises among the lot were the makekoshi by Hokutofuji and Ryuden, each predicted by just three entrants. The scores for the day ranged from excellent 5 for Achiyama and 4 for Ryoshishokunin and Tsubame, all the way down to 1 for Pandaazuma. The other 10 players were split evently between 3 and 2 points.

The backuppers have concluded their basho a day early, the final result was a kachikoshi for former prospect Kotokensei. It's the second time he'll appear on the ballot - previously he put together a 6-KK streak in 2013/14.

The majorly revamped standings:

Day 14:
14/16 Decisions, TB 12-13
Pos Player Pts TB
1 Achiyama 10 13
2 Tsubame 10 11
3 Profomisakari 9 12
4 ryafuji 9 14
5 chishafuwaku 8 10
5 Mmikasazuma 8 15
5 Ryoshishokunin 8 15
8 Pandaazuma 7 14
8 Sakura 7 14
10 Asashosakari 6 12
10 Tenshinhan 6 12
12 Holleshoryu 6 15
12 kuroimori 6 14
14 Jejima 5 14

The yusho will come down to today's Terunofuji-Kisenosato bout, as Tsubame predicted 12 wins for the yokozuna and Achiyama went for 13, so exactly one of them will turn out to be correct and win the LKS championship outright. The only other still-open decision is Daiamami's KK or MK, which was a unanimous KK prediction by us and thus won't be affecting anything in the standings.

The pursuers Profomisakari and ryafuji have the same + / - split in their Kisenosato predictions, so also just one of them will be moving up into jun-yusho contention. However, things are a bit more up in the air here due to tiebreaker considerations:

  • Kise wins, Daiamami wins: shared between Tsubame and Profomisakari
  • Kise wins, Daiamami loses: Profomisakari alone by tiebreaker over Tsubame
  • Kise loses, Daiamami wins: Achiyama alone by tiebreaker over ryafuji
  • Kise loses, Daiamami loses: shared between Achiyama and ryafuji

Good luck!

So a preemptive congratulations to Tsubame then.

Day 15:

As detailed, Kisenosato's miraculous turnaround of the real yusho race also served to decide ours, making Achiyama a fourth-time winner. Congrats! Daiamami also won on senshuraku, so both Tsubame and Profomisakari take jun-yusho honours.

The final standings:

Day 15:
16/16 Decisions, TB 13
Pos Player Pts TB
1 Achiyama 12 13
2 Profomisakari 11 12
2 Tsubame 11 11
4 chishafuwaku 10 10
4 Mmikasazuma 10 15
4 ryafuji 10 14
7 Ryoshishokunin 9 15
7 Sakura 9 14
9 Holleshoryu 8 15
9 Pandaazuma 8 14
11 Asashosakari 7 12
11 kuroimori 7 14
11 Tenshinhan 7 12
14 Jejima 6 14

Achiyama not only took the yusho outright, he's also the only one to score the tiebreaker bonus to make it even more emphatic.


New ballot for Natsu 2017:

 1. Kisenosato     19
    Hokutofuji     11*
 2. Yamaguchi      12
    Shonannoumi     8
 3. Daiamami        8*
    Goshi           7
 4. Oyanagi         7*
 5. Asanoyama       7*
    Ichiki          6*
 6. Takagenji       6
 7. Kizaki          6*
 8. Takemasa        6*
 9. Hatooka         6*
10. Kotoinagaki     6*
11. Tamawashi       5
    Ryuden          4
12. Suekawa         5**
13. Kotokensei      5**
---
14. Kyokutaisei     4

The two non-sekitori newcomers are on a return from all the way down in maezumo. Kyokutaisei completes the new lineup as an additional sekitori.

As always, thanks for playing!

Scores for banzuke purposes:

Achiyama 14 (12+top+tb)
Profomisakari 11
Tsubame 11
chishafuwaku 10
Mmikasazuma 10
ryafuji 10
Ryoshishokunin 9
Sakura 9
Holleshoryu 8
Pandaazuma 8
Asashosakari 7
kuroimori 7
Tenshinhan 7
Jejima 6

Total: 127 / 14 = 9.07 ---> -2 wins


New banzuke for Natsu 2017:

chishafuwaku (O2e 8-7)    O   kuroimori (O1e 5-10)
Achiyama (Kw 12-3 Y)      S   Tenshinhan (O1w 5-10)
Tsubame (M1w 9-6 J)       K1  Profomisakari (M2e 9-6 J)
Mmikasazuma (M1e 8-7)     K2  ---
Ryoshishokunin (S1w 7-8)  M1  ryafuji (M3e 8-7)
Holleshoryu (S1e 6-9)     M2  Gurowake (M2w kosho)
Pandaazuma (Ke 6-9)       M3  Asashosakari (S2w 5-10)
Sakura (NR 7-8)           M4  Tsuchinoninjin (M4w kosho)
Jejima (M4e 4-11)         M5  Harry (M3w 0-0-15)

Shin-ozeki chishafuwaku was the only top-ranker to achieve kachikoshi this time, the rest bombed majorly. Consequently kuroimori goes from tsunatori to kadoban, Tenshinhan goes from kadoban to demoted, and previously demoted Asashosakari goes from repromotion shot to riffraff. Yikes.

Now who would have thunk that Tamawashi is still on the ballot? Going out on a limb here, but I still see him as the more legit next-Ozeki than Takayasu...

WOW! I can't believe that I got the Yusho. For the 4th time?! I really didn't expect that, having in mind how busy I was recently and didn't have enough time to do a proper preparation.

This time my lucky number 13 (my Grandson was born on Feb 13) helped me too to nail the win.

Thank you Asashosakari for running this game! The most I like LKKS for is that it's also unpredictable and no dominance can be achieved in this game. One basho you can win it all, and the next you can fall to the bottom. Let's just play and enjoy the game.

I wish the young blood in Sumo Gaming tries this game.

Salute to Everybody and mostly to LKKS Rijicho! (Cheers...)

A big mea culpa to all the players: As mentioned in the Natsu thread I came across a big screw-up in the calculation of the Haru results. The results of the last three rikishi on the ballot were not actually evaluated at all even though they were on the scoresheet - there are supposed to be safeguards in place to catch that type of thing, but they didn't. Consequently I'm forced to present revised final standings:
 

Day 15:
16/16 Decisions, TB 13
Pos Player Pts TB
1 Achiyama 13 13
2 Tsubame 12 11
3 chishafuwaku 11 10
3 Mmikasazuma 11 15
3 Profomisakari 11 12
6 Holleshoryu 10 15
6 ryafuji 10 14
6 Ryoshishokunin 10 15
6 Sakura 10 14
10 Pandaazuma 9 14
11 Asashosakari 8 12
11 kuroimori 8 14
11 Tenshinhan 8 12
14 Jejima 6 14


Fortunately the yusho winner remains unchanged, though Profomisakari has lost his jun-yusho credit. The revised Natsu banzuke will follow shortly.

Revised scores for banzuke purposes:

Achiyama 15 (13+top+tb)
Tsubame 12
chishafuwaku 11
Mmikasazuma 11
Profomisakari 11
Holleshoryu 10
ryafuji 10
Ryoshishokunin 10
Sakura 10
Pandaazuma 9
Asashosakari 8
kuroimori 8
Tenshinhan 8
Jejima 6

Total: 139 / 14 = 9.93 ---> -2 wins

Most players received exactly one extra point from the scoring fix, excepting Holleshoryu (+2) and Profomisakari, ryafuji and Jejima (all unchanged). As the KK line adjustment is still minus 2, everybody has received at least the same W-L record as before. Three additional players moved into KK territory.

Revised banzuke for Natsu 2017:

chishafuwaku (O2e 9-6)    O   kuroimori (O1e 6-9)
Achiyama (Kw 13-2 Y)      S1  Holleshoryu (S1e 8-7)
Ryoshishokunin (S1w 8-7)  S2  Tenshinhan (O1w 6-9)
Tsubame (M1w 10-5 J)      K1  Mmikasazuma (M1e 9-6)
Profomisakari (M2e 9-6)   K2  ---
ryafuji (M3e 8-7)         M1  Pandaazuma (Ke 7-8)
Asashosakari (S2w 6-9)    M2  Gurowake (M2w kosho)
Sakura (NR 8-7)           M3  Jejima (M4e 4-11)
Harry (M3w 0-0-15)        M4  Tsuchinoninjin (M4w kosho)

The ozeki-related comments from the initial banzuke all apply to the revised version as well.
