Pick The Yusho Winners Natsu 2017

Recommended Posts

This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Natsu 2017.

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 (plus tsukedashi if any)

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.

This was the 3rd time Torafujii won the yusho since I have been compiling the results.

It is the 4th time Torafujii has been the best human player - Genzai took the yusho for Haru 2016 leaving Torafujii the jun-yusho.

Congratulations to Torafujii for his Yusho!

Jun Yusho doesn't deserve congratulations as I see. ;-)

Just a question, as I don't know ho the scoring goes, but as I see the number of wins determines  the winner. Am I right? Is there any weight the other columns have to the Standings?

Regards,

Achiyama

Humble thanks. I haven't felt I've fulfilled my duties lately, however, I continue to battle.  The competition is tough!

Itachi, you do well keeping this game alive.

The Jun-Yusho observation committee has on hiatus this basho - sorry!

Yes, congratulations are due to the Jun-Yusho winner, Achiyama as well.

As for the scoring, I will quote the first post in the thread:

[The player earns points for each win, each kachikoshi, and each yusho earned by their team of 8 rikishi. ]

Oshirokita set the value of each yusho pick as 2 points, each kachikoshi 1 point, and each win 1 point.

I have been sorting the stats by score and then by number of wins to show the leader at each stage (not relevant when I don't prepare daily standings). I can't recall if number of wins is the first tie break ... I believe Oshirokita had earliest entry in there but I don't really keep track of order of entry so I hope to not need that one.

Thanks for playing and my apologies for the delay in producing results in recent basho!

Thanks, Itachi, for the clarification.

It's not that I doubted the Standings Table, but I see now where my misunderstanding comes from. The name of the Columns moved 1 (one) column to the left and this got me off balance. Now looking at the columns it doesn't make sense to have 27 KK. Sorry for bringing this up. :-(
