Pick The Yusho Winners Hatsu 2019

Recommended Posts

This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for Hatsu 2019.

Please note the change in email address at the end of this post. I can still receive your messages at my shaw address but I'm transitioning to the gmail one.

Until further notice, the game will run just as it has the last several times. I will compile the results and post them as best as I can on this thread.

This is a pre-basho game where each player selects a rikishi from each of 8 sections of the banzuke. The player earns points for each win, each kachikoshi, and each yusho earned by their team of 8 rikishi. The sections of the banzuke are these:

Sanyaku (Y through K)

Maegashira

Juryo

Upper Makushita (Ms1-15 ) (not including any tsukedashi of any rank)

Lower Makushita (Ms16-60 plus tsukedashi if any - including Ms 10 or 15)

Sandanme (plus tsukedashi if any)

Jonidan

Jonokuchi


That's it! Simple to understand, difficult to master. The hallmarks of any engaging game.

Please send your 8 selections to me before the beginning of action on Shonichi.

Itachi: matsuorussellj@gmail.com or by pm here at the forum

As a reminder, I am only a temporary caretaker of this game until Oshirokita can address the reconstruction of his system. All banzuke, website, and records updates will be on hold until then but the game itself and results postings will continue here on this thread.

Good luck with your picks.

Genzai, the drone of most popular picks, has the lead after 8 days.

Thanks to all of you for your entries.

Welcome new player, Wakatake!

A note to Shimodahito, we select just one rikishi from the combined Yokozuna/Okezi/Sekiwake/Komusubi ranks.

8 rikishi in total form each team. Your extra sanyaku picks could not be used.

After about 11 days (there may be some day 12 results from the lowest divisions in there) Flohru and the drone Genzai (of most popular picks) share the lead.

I've updated the standings post which can be seen a couple of posts above this one.

It looks like the drone of most popular picks, Genzai, will win the yusho.

Torafujii can move into a tie and share the yusho if Ikioi wins tonight and Kaisei does not.

trying to clear space for final standings

I will try to upload the full table with results for each rikishi on each team later.

Currently, I'm having a problem clearing space for it.

I still think the drone should not be eligible to win the yusho - it is always so frustrating seeing it win! :-D Anyway, congratulations Genzai and Torafuji on another jun-yusho.

Ummm yeah.  Frustrating to "lose" yusho (AGAIN) to a drone.  It didn't look very good for me mid-basho.  I was thrilled to see my team rise to the top (almost) :-/.  Thanks for continuing this game Itachi!!
