But seriously, I see I'm in the running in several games, but I'm not sure how I'd get to 45 Masters points.

My projection system is a thing of wonder. ;) But it is more 'potential'. Remember that you are doing well in Oracle too.

Changing the subject, I made an error regarding the special question in Norizo Cup. For some reason I thought it was just the lowest rank to beat a yokozuna, but that is the TB criterion. So it looks like I won't get that after all. Which means Norizo is now a major threat in Kyushu, especially if I finish weakly this basho.

OMG! I just scored a 4 point GBL win in Bench.  Hak won and everyone else on my team lost.  What a sorry state of affairs.

Busy tonight and can't post the results till later, but I am starting to think Scott is the luckiest son of a gun against me in history!!! I won the last four days in the Baka Cup and was on a nice winning streak. In the past few basho, I have mostly 'won' the Baka Cup and he STILL beat me every time in SG. And today...I insanely at the last minute changed my picks of Takanosho and Tochiozan at 9 and 10 to Chiyoshoma and Hokutofuji. Nicely changing a winning line-up to a losing one. Jaysus H Christ!!!! There is a lesson here: Trust your effing system one day I night even learn it. ;)

Well done, Scott. I will do you over the next three days instead!! ;)

Thanks, Panda.  To call our head-to-head results "anomalous" would be an understatement.

Wins only in SG, ISP, TTT, and Quad.  In the fight for points in TTT and SG.  A strong finish in Quad might bring me back to it.

In the pre-bashos, looking good for points in UDH, Bingo, and FS.  A longshot chance in Roto.

Much, much better day than yesterday.  Finally got back to even 6-6 in SG after a horrific 0-3 start, won my famous 4 pt GBL in Bench, top score in DST, and wins in the other dailies except for ODD.  Woulda had a good score there too if not for my repeated poor judgment in picking Hokutofuji, who let me down for the 4th day in a row in one game or another.  Useless Tub of Goo!  (One tip, DST gives you lots better scores when you submit an entry!) I kept looking for my score from the day before and was shocked to find I didn't have one.  Not even a 0.  Started to email a complaint to the DST admins when I realized I had forgotten to click the "sendo' Ab" button!  LOL!

Oracle Day 12:

After a disastrous day 11, Panda had an excellent day 12 and things swung back. Norizo had a stinker but Choshu-Yuki kept up the pressure on Gurowake. There are many open results still so we could still see quite a few swings. Kishikaisei and Chishfuwaku look to be in there as well. If I get a moment today, I'll add them to the projections if they actually are competitive.

Gurowake, Choshu-Yuku lead

Pandaazuma, Norizo -5

Ganzohnesushi -8

Asashosakari, Haidouzo -11

Carnage day it was, but I managed to sneak wins in Quad, Toto and TTT, all vital ones in the Masters. I can still score serious points here but Norizo really is flying at the moment. I'm going to need some luck, I reckon.

Oracle update day 13:

Choshu Yuki edged ahead of Gurowake today but it really is still quite open. Looks like Chisha and Kishikaisei are indeed competitive...will take a look at their chances later.

Asashosakari had a good day but Panda fell back down again.

C-Y leads.

Gurowake -1

Norizo -5

Pandaazuma, Asashosakari -8

Haidouzo -12

Ganzohnesushi -13

Won the important ones (Quad, TTT and Toto) to stay in strong positions. Managing to keep 3rd in Odd but it's a horrible game for keeping your place. Looking good still in Juryo Game and I am even back in the running in Rotosumo, which is a total surprise. The only other pre-basho chances are Salarycap and Oracle. With faint hopes for Norizo Cup, but I doubt very much I'll get the special question right now because Hak is going to beat both Yokozuna. Damn.

As for SG, I was just shaking my head once again. How the hell does Seb get away with making outrageously ludicrous picks like Nishikigi today? He does it every basho. Fortunately SG is not important this time so I'm hoping to just get my 8 and a decent score. I did manage to beat Scott to go 7-6 in the Baka Cup...and that is hilarious too. I win five out of six straight days and guess which one we actually fight each other on? Astounding.

Norizo slipped up in a few games today so that gives me a little reprieve. Susanoo is actually finishing strongly so it looks like Kyushu will not be a stroll in the park.

Winning record for Chisha today, who's having an all-round good basho. Stefan fell to that lad in unlucky fashion and really doesn't deserve his losing record. He should have done enough to stay in the division though. Hal won but may need another win for safety. And in this miserable showing by the Centipedes, there are now no yusho chances whatsoever.

You must not have read my post from earlier today and my bitterness about how Hokutofuji had lost it for me 4 days in a row?  (Actually 3 days plus a 1 day break then back to a loss again.  It just seemed like 4 days in a row!)  At any rate, I knew I wouldn't let it happen again and got to thinking he must be content just making the early KK and wasn't in the mood for any special prizes this basho.  The history also slightly favored Nishikigi and he had some added incentive going for his KK.  I don't have a "machine" like you and Haidouzo do, but believe it or not, I do actually put some thought into the picks.  And it isn't always about stats, but sometimes who needs the win more and yaocho (if one believes it still exists) enters into the equation as well.  Sounds more like sour grapes to me...  And while we're criticizing the other's picks, I though your Tochinishin pick was a bit dodgy, especially considering Shodai had won the last 2 (3 including the fusen win) in their series.  Back at you...

ztnm,

Sebunshu

Ah, no I hadn't read that post so now your pick makes a lot more sense as at least there is some reasoning behind it. As for yaocho, it definitely exists, but no one can call it before a bout...and anyone saying they can is full of shit. Regarding sour grapes...oh no not at all. I never ever feel like that about anything. I just look at people's picks and it always amazes me that some people get away with ones that are basically dumb unless they're working off some outlandish theory. I remember that used to drive Takahike nuts, when people beat him picking idiots. On the contrary, I quite admire the way you've fought back this basho from a bad start and - as I mentioned - I'm not bothered about SG for Masters purposes this basho. I await the next unorthodox pick when you play against me with interest (and trepidation). ;)

2. Pandaazuma:51

3. Susanoo: 45

4. Jejima: 44

5. Haidouzo: 30

I don't know if you can call it yaocho, (actually, it probably is yaocho if two guys agree to trade wins and losses each time they meet) but when Chisaiyama and I spot one of the lengthy WLWLWL patterns, we take note.  Often I won't pick the next one in line to win, but sometimes I do, especially if it has gone on for an extended period.  And sometimes it will convince me to stay away from the match entirely if the current basho records dictate.  We non-machine folks have to look for every edge we can just to keep up with you analytics folks!  LOL!  (Actually, we were wondering if you guys with the analytics systems account for WLWL patterns and such?)

Losses in Odd and TUG.  Sad losses in SG and TTT.

A good day everywhere else, including a perhaps unprecedented 8-5 in Toto.

This whole year feels like I've just been scraping by with a point or three here and there.

Not much time. KKs today for a relieved Panda and Ganzo. NK sadly for Hal. Seb and Seisset get chances tomorrow. Stefan is now the unluckiest player in the whole game and he had some more hard luck today. I hope he wins tomorrow.

Just a quickie. Kicking myself that I put Shohozan in my TTT line-up. Should have risked Chiyonoo. Damn. But I won Quad, Toto and SG...the important ones. I have come back a bit in Oracle too. Will need a good day tomorrow and then I should get a decent score. 50+ is very possible.

Aaaaaaand! Congrats to Scott...you get to keep the Baka Cup for another two months! :)

No time to do the Oracle stuff really but at a glance Choshu Yuki should be the best out of our group. Gurowake will need Mitakeumi and Tochinoshin to lose to have a chance. Chisha is still going well, I see, and he could well win it. No idea. Panda came back well today and could get a decent finish ahead of Asashosakari, Ganzo and Haidouzo. It's now pretty close between Norizo and Panda.
