Guess Kisenosato's Aite (S1E Mitakeumi) - September 2018

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi!

Time to choose a target.  This game was originally started by following the fortunes of Kisenosato (hence the name of the game) as he bounced around the lower sanyaku and upper joi-jin.  He *did* spend a lot of time at komusubi or sekiwake, and so those ranks should also be part of this continuation of the game.  It has been a year (September 2017) since we had a Komusubi and even longer (March 2017) since we had a Sekiwake as our victim.

Players of GKA need to be able to predict for sanyaku opponents, as well as for joi-jin opponents. 

For that reason, I am going to 'force' a sanyaku player to be 'Kisenosato' for this basho.

Therefore, please rank in order of preference the following three  four (for this basho ?only?) options...

S1E Mitakeumi
S1W Ichinojo
K1E Tamawashi
K1W Takakeisho

Wow!

This was the closest voting that we have ever had (not quite true - I think I once had to add the casting vote some years back....)

By a mere half-a-point (thanks Andonsihiki for bringing in the decimals), Mitakeumi comes out on top above Tamawashi, with Takakeisho a further half-a-point behind.  Ichinojo is also within touching distance.

I will set up the game shortly.....

Announcing the September 2018 edition of Guess Kisenosato's Aite.... This time for S1E Mitakeumi....

All you have to do is guess S1E Mitakeumi's opponent each day, before the torikumi comes out. If you guess correctly, you get a shiroboshi. This is surprisingly more fun (or frustrating) and challenging than it should be. It also gets you to think a bit more about the 'inner-workings' of sumo.

Here is the current banzuke:-

Banzuke for September 2018

Sakura (YO-W 10-5)  Y1 Gurowake (Y2E 10-5)
Kuroimori (Y1W 6-9) Y2 

                                        YO Jakusotsu (Y1E 4-11)
Gernobono (O1E 5-10) O1 

chishafuwaku (S1E 6-9)  S1  Ryoshishokunin (K1E 5-8-2)  
Andonishiki (M1E 6-8-1) K1 Tenshinhan (M1W 6-9) 

orandashoho (K1W 4-10-1) M1 Jejima (M3W 5-10)   
Atenzan (M2E Kosho) M2 shimodahito (S1W 1-13-1)

Profomisakari (M2W 3-12) M3 WAKATAKE (M3E 0-15) 
The Kyokai (M4E 0-15) M4 Umizoi (mz 4-10-1)

Comments:
It is strongly hoped that Yokozuna-Ozeki Jakusotsu will at the very least manage a KK score this basho.
Sekiwake chishafuwaku will be considered for promotion to Ozeki with a yusho.

The rules are as follows:-
1. Guess S1E Mitakeumi's opponents on each day of the basho.
2. Entries need to be in before 11:30 am Japan time on the previous day, except for the days 1 and 2 entries which need to be in before 11:30 am Japan time on the Friday prior to the start of the basho. If it turns out that the daily toriukumi is printed before these times, then any entry proved to have come afterwards is not allowed for that day (so enter early to be safe).
3. Tie-breakers to decide the Yusho.... We look at the result of the day 15 prediction, then day 14, and so on back to day 1. If still a tie, then the highest ranked on the banzuke can claim the Yusho.
4. If S1E Mitakeumi goes kyujo during the basho, we switch to S1W Ichinojo (K1E Tamawashi, then K1W Takakeisho kept further in reserve, if needed due to a mass spate of kyujos) for the days after his fusensho loss (I.e. we can still guess who gets the freebie). For the immediate day afterwards, (unless it is known very soon after the event), everyone will get a 'kyujo'.
5. Players that are leading the Yusho race (especially in the final few days of the basho), are requested / expected to get their picks in very early (before all the other players, if possible) - in order to avoid suspicions of 'tactical picking'.
6. If the kyokai changes the originally posted torikumi for any day (such as for a late kyujo), the first version released will be used for the purpose of this game. 

Special prizes (many thanks to Yaochoyama):

1. Outstanding performance (shukun-sho) - the one who correctly picks the aite the most consecutive days. You have to have a minimum of three to win this prize.

2. Fighting spirit (kanto-sho) - the one who limits their incorrect aite picks to the shortest number of consecutive days (literally the one whose longest losing streak is the shortest). Any losing streak of 5 or more days would disqualify you from this prize.

3. Technique (gino-sho) - the one who is best at making correct picks when no one, or hardly anyone else does. A point system is used as follows and you need at least 3 points to claim this prize:

3 points if you're the only win to make the correct pick
2 points if you're one of two to make the correct pick
1 point if you're one of three to make the correct pick

New players ((Order,order!)) are cordially invited to this game - it is an official second league © game!

All you have to do is guess M3W Takakeisho's opponent each day, before the torikumi comes out.
