Announcing the November 2018 edition of Guess Kisenosato's Aite.... This time for M3E Nishikigi....

All you have to do is guess M3E Nishikigi'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 November 2018

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

                                        YO Sakura (Y1E Kosho) 
Gernobono (O1E Kosho) O1 

chishafuwaku (S1E 11-4 )  S1  Ryoshishokunin (S1W 9-6) 
                                         S2 Andonishiki (K1E 10-4-1) 
Jejima (M1W 12-3) K1 orandashoho (M1E 8-7) 

Tenshinhan (K1W 6-9) M1 Profomisakari (M3E 7-7-1)
shimodahito (M2W 6-9) M2 
Umizoi (M4W 5-7-3) 
WAKATAKE (M3W 4-11) M3 The Kyokai (M4E 2-13)
Ayagawa (mz 4-9-2) M4 

Banzuke-gai
Atenzan (M2E 0-0-15)

Comments:
Yokozuna Jakusotsu is expected to get at least a KK, but it is strongly hoped that he will cross the OQ line.
Sekiwake chishafuwaku will be considered for promotion to Ozeki, if he manages to win the yusho, or obtain a good jun-yusho.

The rules are as follows:-
1. Guess M3E Nishikigi'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 M3E Nishikigi goes kyujo during the basho, we switch to M3W Ryuden (M2W Tamawashi, then M2E Tochiozan 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!

These kind of picks have been controversial in the past, and I can't remember the final ruling. Jejima?

Day 1  If Chiyomaru is set against Arawashi then Ichinojo else too Ichinojo
Day 2  Yoshikaze

I wonder about this kind of voting.
Hakuho's participation or not participation can only be relevant, if it is known before the deadline.
In other case it has to be part of the forecast.

My apologies--my submission OK at the time specified 'if rikishi A withdraws before the deadline, X, else Y'.

I couldn't find anything in the rules, but since Gurowake had done it, it was probably ok - but that's not good logic.

I'd be happy to change mine to a definite.

I obviously meant "If the announcement of his withdrawal happens before the deadline".

So, by that logic a pick like
XXX (if no Sanyaku pulls out before the deadline)
YYY (if one Sanyaku pulls out before the deadline)
ZZZ (if two Sanyaku pull out before the deadline)
will be fine, too?
