Drrring drrrrring:

Takayasu: "Yes?"

Goueidou: "It's me. I am organizing an Ozeki-only barbecue this Saturday. I hope you are free.."

T: "As a bird. With back and elbow pains, but a bird notwithstanding.. I'll be there."

G: "Good, thanks. Bring some beers. 12 noon."

T: "I'll shave!"

Dring drring..

G: 'Hello?"

Tochinoshin : "გამარჯობა?"

G: "It's Goueidou. "

T: "გსურთ ბრძოლა? ახლა?"

G: "Japanese, man. Saturday. I'm having a barbecue for the Ozekis at 12 o'clock. We have to talk. Are you free?"

Tochi: "Food? Free? I'll be there!!"

G: "Great. Just do me a favor and don't bring Gagamaru. That's way over my budget.. And bring some ketchup "

Tochi: "გაგებული"

Drrring drrring..

G: "Taka?"

Takakeishou: "What? Why? Do I need to slap someone?"

G: "No, no, I'm throwing a barbecue on Saturday at noon and inviting all the Ozekis.."

Taka: "But I'm not.." 

G: "Semanthics. Just come over.."

Taka: "Can I bring the twins?"

G: "No, tell them Gagamaru is having a barbecue as well.. And bring some humus."

And for those of you not invited to the barbecue, this is an invitation to play the world famous and cool GTB, the Guess the Banzuke game!!

Rules: Guess the Banzuke. Simple. You get two points for a bulls-eye and one point for just getting the rank right. You get no points for overcooking the kebab. Tiebreakers - Most total guesses, then we check the banzuke backwards - getting the lower half right will be important.  The most correct guesses in the last ten places will win the tiebreaker. If still tied , we go up a ranking at a time like a penalty shootout. It's up to you to check if you are on the list of entries. It's going to be your fault if you don't notice that your entry went missing in the Internet void. No late entries will be expected or accepted.

Special thanks to Andoreasu who runs it, Doitsuyama who automates and maintains it  and to Barbie Q, the world famous toy.

R: Drrring, drring.   

K: Moshi, moshi.

R: Eh?  Nihongo wa wakarimasen.  English dojo.  

K: What do you want?

R: Sir.  Are we to assume there will be 3 Sekiwake spots?   

K: You don't know? Bakka desu ne ...

R: Sir?   

K: Never mind.   I will let you know soon.

R: Arigato.

K: Click.

R: Click.

I'm in. Some hairy moments in there so it could be a train wreck.

The helper won't be updated until I get back from LA, this Thursday. Apologies.

I'm in early for once. Glad that's out of the way. I predict a fairly high scoring basho this time. Unless they throw that 3rd sekiwake at us, then all bets are off.

I am 100% sure I will do better for the next game.  I guarrrrraaaannnnteeeeee.    That's because in my 1st full attempt of this game in the last basho, I finished last.   So, this time, I can not finish worse.  I can tie my previous finish but not worse.  No, never.

You finished 83rd. If 84 play next time you could finish 84th.

I thought it was fairly straightforward this time, so I'll probably finish last.

Ten days to go- don’t wait for the last minute because as some of us know, the entry form has a tendency to occasionally go off-line at the last minute for some reason..

I checked the list of entries to make sure I was on it, and noticed that the awesomely-named "300%HENKA" has entered again.

About 24 hours to go right? I think it's up to 90. This one is going to be tough. I predict a tiebreak winner.

Just provided entry no. 96!

Just entered my feeble attempt which looked too straight-forwardy to be optimistic about the actual outcome, but it took me just about 20 minutes to enter, so, with that said, I am expecting a 4-11 result.

My entry, which I consider a perfectly logical interpretation of the committee's recent habits and so it's probably going to score around 48 points:

Kakuryu (Ye 14-1 Y)       Y    Hakuho (Yw 12-3)
Takayasu (O1w 8-3-4)      O1   Goeido (O1e 3-5-7)
Tochinoshin (O2w 0-6-9)   O2   ---
Mitakeumi (Se 9-6)        S    Takakeisho (O2e 0-0-15)
Abi (Ke 8-7)              K    Endo (M2w 10-5)

Hokutofuji (M1w 9-6)      M1   Aoiyama (M2e 8-7)
Asanoyama (M1e 7-8)       M2   Ichinojo (M4w 9-6)
Daieisho (M3w 8-7)        M3   Tomokaze (M7w 11-4)
Tamawashi (Sw 5-10)       M4   Shodai (M3e 7-8)
Chiyotairyu (M6e 8-7)     M5   Shimanoumi (M6w 8-7)
Kotoshogiku (M5e 7-8)     M6   Myogiryu (M7e 8-7)
Ryuden (Kw 4-11)          M7   Kotoeko (M10e 9-6)
Okinoumi (M8w 8-7)        M8   Takarafuji (M5w 6-9)
Terutsuyoshi (M16w 12-3)  M9   Kotoyuki (M16e 11-4)
Meisei (M4e 4-11)         M10  Sadanoumi (M13w 9-6)
Onosho (M8e 6-9)          M11  Enho (M14w 9-6)
Shohozan (M9e 6-9)        M12  Daishoho (M9w 6-9)
Kagayaki (M12w 7-8)       M13  Nishikigi (M11w 6-9)
Tsurugisho (J6e 13-2 Y)   M14  Toyonoshima (M14e 7-8)
Ishiura (J2e 9-6)         M15  Azumaryu (J1w 8-7)
Yutakayama (J3w 9-6)      M16  Tochiozan (M12e 5-10)
Takagenji (M10w 4-11)     M17  ---

I'm feeling confident about Shohozan and Daishoho at M12, and that's about it. And if they did go with something other than 2 S + 2 K, oh boy.

Mine from Asashosakari's is:

Swap Ichinojo and Asanoyama, Tamawashi and Shodai, Ryuden and Kotoeko, Takarafuji and Terutsuyoshi, Sadanoumi and Meisei, Azumaryu and Yutakayama. 

Replace Takagenji with Takanosho.

All of those are very reasonable changes, and I think I may prefer some of them looking at it now weeks later.

Swap (...) Takarafuji and Terutsuyoshi

That's one I went back and forth on. I ended up favouring Takarafuji as the veteran of that same-stable pair, no other particular reason.

Outside of Nagoya 2015 that's the most in almost 10 years.

I think this is the first basho Kintamayama has advertised on Reddit.  I might be wrong, because I've only checked r/sumo a couple times in the last few years, but I was surprised to see it there, and it definitely can explain the increase in numbers.
