A good basho for the Panda. Will come back for a review when more results are in.

Sounds like some understatement... Looking at the results I guess you have easily crossed 100+ SB Masters points. Even if it is "just" 95 points you had a great - not to say sensational - basho.

SG:  Lost on senshuraku for a 4-way tie for J-Y instead of a tiebreak loss in a two-way yusho play-off.  9 points instead of 12.

Quad:  7-way tie for 6th.  2 and 1/7th points.

Chaingang:  1/19th of a Master's point.  Not the first time I've gotten a small fraction of a point here.

TTT:  From 8-3 to 8-7 and a tie for 12th.

Toto:  Lost on senshuraku to tie for 12th.

DST:  Tanked on senshuraku to drop from 11th to 15th.

Bench:  A 4-4 tiebreak win for KK (8-7).

ISP:  5-10, 157th of 183.  I may have never gotten Master's points in this game.

Odd:  4 points not bet is all I have to show there.  52nd of 60.  Not good from M11.

In pre-basho:

Juryo Game:  Top 10 the whole basho until the end.  12th.

Oracle:  After a promising run all basho, tied for 17th of 54.

Norizo Cup:  7-8

Roto:  50th of 88.

The rest of the pre-bashos are too horrible to mention.

Approximately 11.2 points from 3 top 10s.  5 finishes from 12th to 17th.  Still no yusho.  This seems all the Machine is capable of anymore.

Pandaazuma is already in triple digits. The only somewhat open question is whether he will break my old Masters record from 2013. If he could maintain or improve his UDH performance on Days 14 and senshuraku, that mission is accomplished. Exactly what Simon would call a "good basho"...

If it were not of my disdain toward personality cults, I would be on the verge of creating a new thread just listing all the gaming records that Pandaazuma breaks. Just for this basho it is:

- most points ever in any Masters competition (he eclipsed my old record by a little bit more than half a point, clocking in a 108.91)

- (probably) the best pre-basho performance in history, with 86.50 points (I have to double-check on that, but it's almost guaranteed)

- getting points in 14 different games. Again, I am pretty sure that this is unprecedented.

- the best GTB performance in history.

Amazing... Watching the bouts with Simon, I began to get a grasp on what makes him such an outstanding daily gamer. I still have to uncover his secret for pre-basho gaming...

 

Later edit: ok, some laurels too many... There have been two players with 90+ pre-basho points. And Gurowake also had a basho with 14 performances among the Top 10. And still, congrats on a remarkable achievement!

Well, now...Hatsu 2019.

Bench Sumo: 9-6 (0.75 Masters points (MP)). Started 1-3 and 2-4, I think, so this is a decent comeback. Should be S1E in March.

Chain: Out on day 6 when all the bandwagons crashed. (0.05MP). Under my picking system, it would have been impossible to win this tournament, so even a fraction of a point is nice.

Tipspiel: Joint 3rd, 11-4 (8MP). I managed a big fat zero on senshuraku after some good picking on days 1-14 and nearly messed things up but managed to hang on for significant MPs. I think I may have a chance of ozeki promotion here too.

Fantasy Sumo: 9-6. I didn't have the yusho winner so despite being top three the entire basho, I ended up being overtaken by almost anyone with Tamawashi in their line-up. If Takakeisho had won... But I am very happy with this result as I hate being kadoban in this lottery game.

GTB: 15-0Y. I equalled the record score so this was really excellent.

Hoshitori: 3rd, 14-1 (10MP). I needed a good record as my Yokozuna status was in danger but that is past for the moment.

ISP: 6-9. The usual horror show. This is one game I will just never ever be good at.

Juryo Game: 8-7. I may have been kadoban here (can't remember) so am relieved to be in positive territory. I was let down by Takagenji, Wakatakakage and Mitoryu. Kotoeko did a lot better than I expected as well.

Norizo Cup:14-1Y (15MP). I just managed the yusho on a tie and am very happy with this as I have been a bit lacklustre in this one of late, which is not good enough. My Yokozuna counterpart Choshu-Yuki has been thrashing me over the last 12 months so it's nice to get the east spot back.

Odd Sumo: 3-12. If Aoiyama hadn't stepped out against Hokutofuji, I'd have picked up nearly 60 points on senshuraku. Damn!

Bingo: Joint 5th, 11-4 (5.5MP). Better than expected and it should put me back in sanyaku.

PO: 5th, 12-3 (6MP). With 11-4 last time, I can get ozeki promotion in March if I get 11 again. Not easy, but I'll give it a crack.

Rotosumo: Yusho (15 MP). A bit surprising. Avoiding the banana skins like Yutakayama was probably the key here.

Salarycap: 7th, 12-3 (4MP). I had neither the yusho nor jun yusho bonus so am very happy to make the top ten.

Oracle: 12-3J (10MP). Close at the top this time and lost on a tie but was glad to have navigated a very tricky basho.

Quad: 8-7. From a 0-3 start and picking with a bunch of zombies for the last few days, this was a really excellent result.

Toto: 12-3J (11MP). I was kadoban here so this was the result I needed.

SG: 9-6 (2.5MP). Very relieved to clear soft kadoban but this was a poor and undisciplined performance. I'll be ensuring that won't happen again.

TTT: 8-7. A bit disappointed not to make the top ten but 8 wins is 8 wins.

UDH: 5th, 13-2 (6MP). My decision to put Kise top paid off with a decent result. This lays the foundation of a Yokozuna run.

I think I have 108.8 Masters points [rough calculation which may be incorrect], which is a very nice haul on any day of the week. I was lucky, basically, but I can't really pinpoint why my pre-basho performance was so strong. I guess I just managed to avoid most of the banana skins in comparison to other gamers. Anyway, it's a fine start to the gaming year.

Thanks to all the people who run and maintain the games. :)
