Sandanme Game Hatsu 2019

Recommended Posts

The Sandanme Game will run again for Hatsu 2018.

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.

I have been very close to giving this game a kyujo for a few basho now but since some of you continue to take the time to send me entries, I feel compelled to keep it going.

There may be a delay in getting the results to you but I will set up the game, record your entries, and compile and present the results. Hopefully, I can catch up on the banzuke making as well. Thanks for your patience and continuing interest in the game!

Here is the usual invitation:

For the Sandanme Game, please send me your list of 15 rikishi from the usual segments of the banzuke.

Sd 1-5/6-10/11-15/16-20/21-25/26-30/31-35/36-40/41-45/46-50
51-60/61-70/71-80/81-90 and 91-100+ (91-100 including tsukedashi if any)

Your rikishi earn points for each win, for a kachikoshi record, for leading their group, and a bonus for the best scoring rikishi on each team based on how close they were to the yusho winning record. The result is adjusted so that the best possible score gets a 15-0 result.

The drone Mirai knows the future and always selects the best rikishi in each group. This shows us what the best possible score would be at each stage of the game.
The drone Genzai picks the most popular rikishi from each group. This drone has tended to score well.
The drone Mukashi picks the rikishi in each group who had the best record last basho. This drone isn't expected to score well but sometimes surprises us.

Send your entries to me at matsuorussellj@gmail.com before any of your selections enter the dohyo for their match (and preferably a few hours before that).

This is to bump the topic.

Sandanme is the only division (other than Makuuchi) with a former Ozeki!

Unfortunately, Terunofuji will be kyujo again and leave this division on his way back to Maezumo, but there are still 199 other rikishi to consider! (most of them not kyujo)

Hi Itachi-zeki,

Flohru is way ahead after 11 days!

The standings are updated a couple of posts above this one.

I can't remember the last time I saw my team at the very bottom of the standings!

Flohru is way ahead and will surely win the yusho.

Torafujii also looks sure to win the jun-yusho as 3rd place Achiyama is quite far behind.

It looks like I cannot be displaced at the opposite end of the standings :-|

Wow, 20th yusho, never thought that would even be possible in any sumo game. I would rather like to see SG having 20 players, though! Thanks Itachi - and thanks everyone else for participating in this game!

I agree that it'd be great to have 20 players.  We'd better see the quality of our picks.  No doubt you, Flohru, would still win! ;-)  I'm glad to see my approach has been showing good results.
