What are your "best" SB games?

Recommended Posts

Just found some time to check my SB masters scores over the years (2006-2019). For me it was a big surprise to see S-Oracle leading the rest of the games by a mile. At least my favourite pre-basho game UDH (I have a special faible for losers ;-)) is 2nd best among the pre-bashos. Scores in my favourite dailiy games (SG & S4) are also fine. Bashos from 2020 are not included in this ranking (Sumo Game has overtaken Toto meanwhile).

No surprise to find Fantasy Sumo and Paper Oyakata far behind due to their huge number of participants in the past. Playing rather safe in Odd Sumo is reflected in a low overall score as well. Perhaps I should change my strategy in near future. And in Hoshitori I'm simply crap for more than 14 years now...

Nice idea! No big surprises in my case as well with four daily games among the top 5. One should mention some changes over time as well. +135 of my 135,93 points in S-O came before 2014... Regarding the games that ceased operation: Funny that ten more years of Fantasy Sumo were not enough to match the points total of GISP despite the games being so similar.

I've only been playing games on and off for ~3 of the last 7 years, so it's a small sample size. Two lucky bashos this year in Chain heavily tip the scales.

Here is my summary on 2016-2019 period (I only update once a year)

I think it is pretty clear that I suck at daily games except TTT (CG is another category, not really daily). Nothing in the games that require to be in the top division, I am desperately stuck in upper makushita in both of them.

I "won the year" in three games so far :
2016 - Chaingang
2017 - GTB
2019 - Roto

Now I have to seriously work on my picking strategy for daily games...

mmh,

first point is simple

daily games FAR better than pre-basho games, why is that ?

favorites games are also mostly likely the most successful.

sumogame - favorite game

odd sumo- used to be REALLY good

tipspiel - not too shavy

salary cup, chaingang, gtb - ai like a lot, but recent results suck...
