Sandanme Game Kyushu 2019

Recommended Posts

The Sandanme Game will run again for Kyushu 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.

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.

There is still time to send in your entries!

Any rikishi who has not had a bout is eligible so even a very last minute entry is fine!

Here are the competitors for the 2019 Kyushu Sandanme Game yusho:

Itachi

Profomisakari

Houmanumi (welcome to the game!)

Flohru

Athenayama (welcome to the game!)

Torafujii

Achiyama

and the usual drones, Genzai for most popular picks, and Mukashi for best scoring rikishi in the previous basho

The unseen drone Mirai (who sees the future and always selects the best possible lineup) sets the pace as usual. 

The scores in the game are calibrated with respect to the best possible results (Mirai) so that a perfect lineup will score 15.0 even if every rikishi did not go 7-0.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support of the game and thanks to our two new players for giving it a try!

Now that I have entered all the lineups, I will be able to prepare results.

Hitenryu is kyujo. The players who picked him received Mukashi's pick except that the drone also favoured Hitenryu.

The drone's second choice, Fukamiyama, is the replacement replacement rikishi for Hitenryu.

Hitenryu/Fukamiyama would have been the most popular choice but the drone Genzai ignores default replacements and selects the most popular chosen active rikishi which was Obayama.

Itachi-san,
Thanks for the update and for the game. It makes us be more interested in the lower divisions even though we don't have the means to watch the bouts. At least where I live.

Whelp, picking Sandanme Rikishi via random number generator sure is ineffective. 

 

Thanks for the game, Itachi!
