Not a bad night for me but Aoiyama getting called for the hair pull cost me a 14, but not the win thankfully, in Bench, my Odd bet, ISP and 3 points in DST.

Well watching Moti's video I thought I had a good day at the games, as it turns out so did everyone else.

Could you please be less good next time I'm good so that I can feel better about myself? Thanks. 

P. S. Only 3 of you lost in Chaingang today. Now that's the kind of thing I'm referring to. Make an effort.

Not that I am happy to be out of CG and but it is still interesting to watch. Who is going to blink first?  Riding the bandwagon is keeping people in, but too many.  It's going to take some off picks to win this one I think because it looks likes it headed for tiebreakers. Still, I'd ride the wagons for  a while yet.

Oracle Day 7:

Leader: Bakanonou
Haidouzo -4
Pandaazuma, DeRosa -7
Gurowake -11
Gansekiiwa, Kotononami -13
Unkonoyama -14
ScreechingOwl -15
Choshu-Yuki -16
Kobashi, Asapedroryu -17
Andonishiki -19
Chishafuwaku -20
Torafuji -23
Norizo -29

The big story here is the extent of Yokozuna Norizo's slaughter! Never seen anything like this in this game before. Bakanonou looks a fairly likely winner with that prediction of 1 for Kisenosato along with some decent predictions all round. Scott is playing a blinder! Can he see it out? Gurowake has come back into proceedings well. He's a strong player so no surprises there. I expect Choshu-Yuki and Norizo to improve in the second week as well.

Gurowake -14
ScreechingOwl, Ukonoyama -15

Choshu-Yuki -20
Asapedroryu -21
Kobashi -22

Anybody with all of Daieisho, Abi and Tomokaze still available in Quad? (Laughing...)

Only Daieisho for me—and I already had him picked for today!

Yup, should I  add insult to injury and pick  Wakatakakage  with them or use it as a burner and pick Daiamami? 

 

I burned Daiamami. These 3 will make 8 Fusen wins this basho so I don't think I will be getting the Shuken-So in Quad.

You don't have to pick a fourth at all.

No? Well okay then. But doesn't it help the tiebreaker to get rid of your lowest winning guy? Not that I am going to need a tiebreaker mind you.

You can also sabotage yourself by picking fewer than three! B-)

Can't believe your current calculation has the right guys in front (except for the Panda). I don't expect Bakanonou, Gansekiiwa or Kotononami within the top 10. Better keep an eye on returnee Golynohana...

I'm just doing it the way Rando does in Kyushu. And don't forget that the three you mentioned all bid low on Kisenosato, giving them big bonuses. I track them from the start and only have time for a limited number...and this basho I tracked anyone who predicted five or less for Kisenosato as well as the usual suspects. If anyone looks to be coming through like Golynohana, I'll add them to the tracking...and will remove obvious stragglers from day 13 onwards.

Edit: Just had a glance at Golynohana and he is currently projected as 3 points behind me. So he is in with a good chance.

Any kyujo or Intai Rikishi will have no further influence on the current standings. Predicting too low numbers for e.g. for Endo, Kaisei, Ishiura, Toyonoshima or Chiyomaru will.

That's not how my projections work...and the standings as they are on the site are pretty much meaningless.

Would not have expected a double-kinboshi in TTT on a day like this.

Incidentally, if I didn't miss one today was the 6th time in TTT history that a no-risk win was possible. (Also 2012.11.09, 2013.07.06, 2015.11.14, 2018.03.12 and 2018.07.06.)

a double kinboshi is easier on such a day with 80% having the same rikishi....
