GTB Haru 2020- 118 entries !!

Recommended Posts

DRRING DRRRING..

Hakuhou: "Ishiura, stop beating on everyone and bring me my phone!"

Ishiura: "Shut up Hokahou!"

Hakuhou: "What did you say?!!?""

Ishiura: "Oops, sorry.. your names are so identical.."

Hakuhou : "Do you want to be punished again?"

Ishiura: "Oh please, not Bohemian Rhapsody again!!"

H: "Bring the phone!!"

Kakuryuu : "Hello boss. So what's our decision?"

H: "Damn Goueidou, stealing our limelight . Couldn't he have waited a few months?"

K: "A double Yokozuna intai was such a good idea.."

H: "No chance Goueidou postpones it till November?"

K: "I think he's gone already.."

H: "Damn. First everyone falls asleep and lets the makujiri whatshisname get the yusho, and now this.."

K:"That's nothing- now one of us has to be a .. are you getting this? A Yokozeki!! A F%%^^%% Yokozeki!!"

H: "That's not a real thing, right? Come on!!"

K: " And worse, there's no M18 on the GTB entry page!!'

H: "The what is not what??"

K: "The GTB. You know, the Banzuke guessing game!!"

H: "Geez Anand, grow up!! Ishiura!! Can you pop over to Michinoku and smack Kakuryuu on the forehead for a while??"

GTB. Please play. The entry form now goes down to M40,  just in case..

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 thinking Ichinojou will make it back to Makuuchi by simply appearing. 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.

Deadline- Monday February 17th, 2020 at 18:00 GMT ("Great Moves, Tokushouryuu!!") - PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS ONE WEEK BEFORE THE OFFICIAL BANZUKE ANNOUNCEMENT !!

Special thanks to Andoreasu who runs it, Doitsuyama who automates and maintains it and to Shoudai for being the next Ozeki again.

SERIOUS PS:

If you think it's relevant, your Yokozeki pick should go to the Yokozuna West slot. There is a limit to how accommodating we can be..

So, the second yokozuna always goes on Yokozuna West and it doesn't matter if the player thinks the lowest Y will be put at Yokozeki or stays at "normal" Y and someone else is promoted to second Ozeki, correct?

Therefore, there is no situation where you have to put the 2nd Y anywhere else?

Right. For us, the west Yokozuna will be the yokozeki.

Once again, I submitted what I'd do for a game banzuke, but will be utterly wrong in the end.

Just made my picks, had a lot of moving about, kakuryu is yokozunaozeki, tokushoryu is east maegashira 4, Kotonowaka, Daiamami, Hidenoumi and Nishikigi in makuuchi, Goeido, Kotoyuki and Kotoeko out of makuuchi, banzuke goes down to east maegashira 18. would for sure watch a basho if this was the banzuke.

I think you have a problem ^^ 4 are up in makuuchi and 3 only are down..........1 intai and 2 in juryo, i think you have 43 sumotori in makuuchi ^^

The entry form won't shouldn't accept 43, so one Makuuchi guy must have been overlooked..

Oh, you guys don't think they are gonna go to Juryo? Well I added them just in case you wanted to promote them up the banzuke.

I'm in. This wasn't as tricky as the last few, thank Jaybus.

I see Doitsuyama is in there. I'll assume it's just to test the unusual banzuke conditions and not a return to gaming in general...
