Break The Curse (The Nigate Game) Haru 2019

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Break The Curse (The Nigate Game) 

Registration link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T7RZM76

It's an easy game to play, but you have to pick wisely.

In this daily game, you have to choose three Makuuchi bouts where you think a rikishi with a losing head-to-head record against his opponent will win.

Rules

1) Every day, choose three Makuuchi bouts listed for that same day. The bouts must follow this form:

                A) The first bout must contain a rikishi from Sanyaku (any bout with a  Y/O/S/K can be chosen).

                B) The second bout must contain a rikishi ranked M1 through M8.

                C) The third bout must contain a rikishi ranked M9 or lower. A lower ranked Makuuchi rikishi against a Juryo rikishi can be chosen.

2) Some bouts will fit in multiple categories (e.g. a Y vs M1 bout can be chosen for the first or second bout). However, you may not choose the same bout twice (or more). If you do, the second (or third) instance of the bout will score you 0 points.

3)Any bouts that do not fit the criteria will not score points.

4) You will score points if the rikishi with the losing record in head-to-head wins. E.g. if RIKISHI A has a 30-20 winning record over RIKISHI B and RIKISHI B wins, then you score points. If RIKISHI A wins, then you score 0 points.

5) The number of points you score is calculated by the difference in head-to-head score prior to the bout. E.g. if RIKISHI A has a 30-20 winning record over RIKISHI B and RIKISHI B wins, then you score 30-20=10 points. These points are called base points.

6) When determining points, any previous bouts between the two rikishi that were in a playoff or decided by fusen do not count. I'll be using the head-to-head stats from the database, so if it gives a head-to-head of 5[-1]-8[+1], then that will be used as a 4-8 record in the calculations.

7) Fusen: If your rikishi wins by fusen, then you get half of all points (including the bonus points in rule 9) rounded up to the nearest integer.

8) The Kotoshogiku Rule. This rule has been named in honour of Kotoshogiku's extremely lopsided head-to-head result with Hakuho. The maximum number of base points on any match-up is 20. If RIKISHI A has a head-to-head winning record of 50-5 over RIKISHI B then the base points will be 20, not 45.

9)  In addition to  the points given as described above there will be an additional  4 points for picking a winning rikishi. This should make some of the lower scoring but low risk bouts more attractive to pick.

10) Day 15. Since the torikumi for day 15 comes out well after I've gone to bed, then you'll have to submit them to me via PM or posting here on the forum thread. Unless anyone else is able to do Day 15 for me.

11) Promotion Rules for Ozeki

  •  33 wins over last three basho of which last two in Sanyaku. All those bahso must have a winning record.
  •  30 wins over last three basho of which last two in Sanyaku. All those bahso must have a winning record. AND a Yusho in those three.
  • 2 Yusho over the last three basho (last two basho in Sanyaku) or a Yusho/Jun-Yusho back-to-back combination (in Sanyaku)

12) Entry deadline is start of Juryo

Winning

The winner is the one with the most points and the end of the basho. The tiebreaker is decided by the bonus points system.

The entry form is an anonymous survey that I post links to here.

Even though the SB dailies do not seem to be functional, BTC certainly is.

And sumo-db shows Shodai with a 5-1 record versus Tochiozan and Onosho 4-1 versus Okinoumi.

Oops, forgot the mistakes. I guess I'll need to redo my entry if it gets fixed.

Alas for the database being not ready until very late. I tried my best, but I must have misread the Ikioi-Shohozan number and somehow transferred the win numbers for the Tochiozan and Okinoumi matches. I've fixed the latter two, but I've decided to keep Ikioi as selectable over Shohozan, because 5 people had already chosen that matchup.

Thanks all.

Entry Form Day 6

Don't know if this will happen because of the forum down time. The forum was down when the torikumi was posted and still down when I went to bed. It was still down in the morning.

Sinking from 4th to 10th place because of Sumoforum being down for a long time.

What a bad luck.

I am sorry. Since nearly everyone got an entry in, I concluded that the forum was up for long enough for there to be good time to get the entries in.

However, I am not so sure about today. Four players did not get picks in because I could not post the entry form until quite late because of the down time. I may declare Day 6 void. Anyone have any thoughts.
