Sandanme Game Hatsu 2020

Recommended Posts

The Sandanme Game will run again for Hatsu 2020.

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).

Thanks to everyone for your entries!

We have just 8 players this basho, including the 2 drones. (Well, there is a 3rd hidden drone to track the best possible team, Mirai)

No substitutions for errors or kyujo rikishi were required.

Good luck with the rest of the basho!

Wow, nine players and three yusho winners (never thought about that, but are there no tie-breakers?)! That's a 33 % chance of winning a yusho: Sumo gamers, you simply need to join Sandanme Game!! Thanks, Itachi

In 80 basho, the yusho has been shared only 5 times. The scoring formula was designed to make ties less likely but sometimes the strongest players favour mostly the same rikishi and the top teams are very similar as was the case this basho.

The most recent 2 occasions of yusho sharing (Kyushu 2017 and Hatsu 2020) were the only 2 to involve 3 players. Each time, the drone of most popular picks, Genzai, shared in the yusho, which had never happened before (though Genzai had been the sole yusho winner once before (Nagoya 2009)).

Thanks to everyone for their continued support of this game!

Damn, what a fall. In the lead half way and then...

Congrats to the winners and thanks Itachi for the game! I'll try even more in March.
