21 July 20

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Welcome to the 21 game for Natsu July 20 (I hope).  

The game is a simple pre-basho game in which you are given 21 matchups that may occur in the next basho.  Your job is to decide whether each match will occur, and, if so, who will win it.

Each of the 42 makuuchi rikishi will be found in one and only one match.  The matchups are selected on the basis of closeness in rank and the closeness in win-loss records.  The intent is to select 21 of the least predictable matches.

Entries are submitted as posts in this topic.  Each match will have two rikishi labeled “A” and “B”.  For each match, enter the match number and either A or B for your selected winner.  If you do not think the match will occur, enter an “X”.

For example:

1.  A
2.  X
3.  B
...

The winner is the entry with the most correct answers.  (X counts.)  If one of the rikishi for a match does not appear on the dohyo for the entire basho, that match will be counted as correct for all entries.  An entry other than A, B or X will be counted as incorrect.   If two or more entrants have the same number of correct picks, the one having the FEWEST other entrants making each of those correct picks will be the leader. If the agreement counts are equal, the entrant with the earliest time of entry will be the leader.

Entry deadline is 2 days before shonichi at 05:00 AM (JST) on Friday, May 22 July 27 (I think).  No new entries or entry modifications will be accepted after the deadline.

Here are the 21 matches for July 20.  The numbers in parens are the the results of the most recent matches between the two.

1 Ye Hakuho (2-1) Yw Kakuryu

20 M16w Kotoeko (1-0) M17e Terunofuji
21 M17w Kotoyuki (0-0) M16e Nishikigi

Each match must appear on a separate line in your entry.  Use shift-enter to avoid double-spacing.

Natsu 20 was officially cancelled.  We will use the same matches for the Nagoya (or whereever) basho in July (or whenever). (Idunno...)
