Sekitori Heya Game (SHG) - Nagoya 2018 ENTRY

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 22nd edition of the Sekitori Heya Game!

As always, RECRUITING NEW PLAYERS for this easy pre-basho game!!!

 

TOPICS:

We're back to 10 teams again, as Team Takadagawa left us after just one basho. No newcomers this time.

In Nagoya 2018 we have not one but two teams with 7 sekitori: Kise and Oitekaze. Lots of points to be scored there!

 

SHG Nagoya 2018 ENTRY FORM

 

Rules:

The player's task is to sort the sekitori within their respective heyas by how many wins he/she thinks those sekitori will get during the upcoming basho.

TOP - most wins, BOTTOM - least wins. In case of two rikishi with identical number of wins, the score of the one with a higher rank will be considered better.

If a rikishi withdraws before the Day 1 torikumi is published (i.e. is NOT listed on the Day 1 torikumi), he will automatically be moved to the bottom spot of all players' entries and his score will not be included in the averages for bonus questions. No need to resend the entry or correct the picks in such cases. If such a rikishi enters the basho later, it does not "activate" him in any way.

 

Scoring:

Base points:
After the basho, 1 point will be awarded for every correctly guessed A>B-type (A has more wins than B) relation between every two members of each "team".

 

Bull’s-eye points will be awarded for getting the order of the whole "team" right (a bull's-eye) (the more sekitori in a heya, the higher the bonus):
+3 for a 3-sekitori heya,
+5 for a 4-sekitori heya
+8 for a 5-sekitori heya
+12 for a 6-sekitori heya

+17 for a 7-sekitori heya etc.

 

There are also 2 bonus question for 4 points each:

 

1. Which of the featured teams do you think will have the highest average number of wins?

2. Which of the featured teams do you think will have the lowest average number of wins?

(1. In case of an identical average number of wins, the scores of bigger teams will be treated as better. In case of two or more equally big teams getting the same best average number of wins, all of them will be considered "winners".

And vice versa for 2. - in case of two or more identical lowest averages, the biggest team is considered worse)

 

TIE-BREAKERS:

1. Most base points (that is, excluding bull's-eye points and bonus question points)

2. Base points for 6-sekitori heya

3. Base points for 5-sekitori heya

4. Base points for 4-sekitori heya

5. Base points for 3-sekitori heya

This was played. I like it too, although I am guessing most of the time. (Laughing...)
