Yes, I AM gutted. Would have liked to have it in my own hands. Obviously the Torikumi maker thought, Trender (aka Derosa) would win against me. In that case the final Bout between Yumezukuri and Trender would have been perfect but I was following my own script  (Laughing...)

Nevertheless, my 9th Jun-Yusho is in the bag unless Senshuraku offers me the sweetness of a Yusho. TB currently is in my favour (98 vs. 95).

I have a slightly better chance for the Yusho in S4 as I'm the sole leader at 12-2 but at least two of the 4 chasing guys at 11-3 will easily beat me in a TB. So I need to eke out another lucky win on Senshuraku. Difficult, when your remaining Rikishi are rather underdogs in tomorrows Bouts. Let's see what the Day brings.

No, I know the lad who runs the game and he has rules about who he puts yusho contenders from Maegashira up against. He chose Trender for the simple reason that he is ranked higher than you. I really don't know why he doesn't wait for the day-14 results though...that would make more sense to me.

Anyway, I hope you go on and win it. You have a very good score and so deserve the yusho.

Looking at the matchups that was my guess too. However, Trender is a hard nut for Yumezukuri and I'm confident he will do his best. What will be really annoying is if I lose vs. Andoreasu with a score that would have beaten Yumezukuri. I know my usual luck in these situations... But all I can think of is winning!

In Bench you'd get the two leaders matched up on senshuraku (if they hadn't met previously), but in SG that rarely happens. At least Trender is a beast at that game, so anything can happen today. Good luck, Ganzo.

Already won my Bout vs. Andoreasu. Trender needs Mitakeumi and Kakuryu to beat Yumezukuri.... a nailbiter

Yesssssssssssssssss! After Endo's win for Yumezukuri I needed wins from Asanoyama, Meisei, Mitakeumi and Kakuryu for my own and Trender's win. Brilliant. TB is 105 - 103 in my favour. No 9th Jun-Yusho. Its Yusho (Firstprize...)  (Clappingwildly...)

Good stuff, Ganzo. You can't beat a comeback yusho!

I had a poor final day with some very bad luck all around and missed my target of 250 Masters points. It was fully deserved really as I was abysmal for most of the basho, albeit under unpredictable conditions. So, all told, I'm happy with my 27 points or so. Typical of Fujesus to meet me on a day when it was impossible for my team to beat his even with a GBL. And SG was the usual Yamashiro comeback special, although I didn't pick all that well anyway. About the only highlight was my worst game - ISP. Oracle was extremely annoying, missing out on serious points by one point. But at least I'll be back at Yokozuna East next time. Choshu-Yuki is on the brink of demotion there now. Getting a bit crowded at the top anyway.

Terrible basho for me too, mostly due to a awful lineups pre-basho. MK debut as Ozeki in Oracle. MK in SG despite scoring the same number of points as the yusho winner and beating all 3 Juryo I faced. Argggh! I got just under 10 points I think. Would have had a few more in Odd if Hokutofuji had won. KKs in TTT, ISP, Juryo Game, DST and Toto along with a Top 10 in Quad. Meh.

Congrats to Ganzo on a very exciting turnaround yusho. He'll be getting a nice boost up the banzuke for that and, as the top scorer in the division, will get a nice gino-sho too. Maybe even a kanto-sho. Owl and Jan finished on songs for DD. Chanko and Scott sadly went MK but Gary got his deserved winning record. Misery for Seb, whose demotion is now confirmed, and also Stefan, who should stay in the division but will be wondering why he has lost six tie-breaks out of six. Wow!

Good news all round in Juryo as everyone finished KK. Unko got a jun yusho but the eleven wins won't be sending him up to Makuuchi. In Makushita everything was fine too, and Dustin finally came through with his eighth.

Not much to report on the promotions/demotions front. Rupe and Chanko are down from sanyaku. Owl should be back at komusubi. And Seb, as we know, is back in Juryo.

A decent basho overall by the Centipedes.

This is really ironical. Won my SG Bout vs. Andoreasu 7-6, but would have lost vs. Yumezukuri 7-8... Usually stuff like this doesn't turn out to be in my favour. That's really a nice compensation for all the bad luck I had over the years in this game. However, as I have gained the most points among all players I feel this is somehow deserved. It doesn't happen too often, that the player with the most points grabs the Yusho.

And the icing on the cake is that totally unexpected Yusho in S4. After exactly 10 years my 2nd Yusho in this great game.

Funny enough - my Seki-Toto score is 5-10 though only 9 players have collected more points...

So its a Yusho in the two games I like most among them all. In addition I collected a friction of points in GTB, CG and TTT --> 32,31 in total.

Haha. You post so much in this thread that I am wondering whether you are hoping to enter Mukade Beya!! You are very welcome, but I am not sure what your Bench ichimon is. Unaffiliated?

In the dailies, it's pretty much 7-8 everywhere but DST (6-9), TTT (8-7), Quad (9-6--one short of points), a clear KK in Odd, and the inevitable senshuraku collapse in Toto for a large 7.5-point jun-yusho split.

Thankfully, some pleasant surprises in the pre-bashos.  7th in Hoshitori for 4 points.  Tied for 8th in NC for 2.5 points.  3rd place in Salarycap after day 14 but hellifino where I'll land.  3rd would be a lovely 10 points.

So, a definite 14 points, and perhaps 10 more, which would make (I think) a fairly good basho for me.

Got my 8th win in SG, don't think it was deserved but I'm not going to complain about it. I'll certainly have to work on this game as my luck will run out soon.

Congrats Ganzohnesushi on the superb performance!

 

Pre Basho:

GTB: 7-8 (Good for me, I was 4-11 last basho)

Fantasy: 166/169 (Again, better than my 190/191 last basho (Laughing...))

Roto: 74/79 (New game for Nagoya)

Hi Simon

small correction on your Sumo game comment: " It was heartbreak for Yumezukuri, who has played Sumo Game since 2001 and has never won a yusho in any division." This statement is not true as Yumezukuri has won Juryo Yusho in Natsu'14...

There's more action here than the Games talk. Yes, for now. Still trying to figure out what's going on there.
