I meant that had the withdrawals not happened, I would indeed be miles ahead.

Sorry Simon, but I don't buy this. For me this thesis comes totally out of the blue. With the same impudence I could claim that Hakuho under normal circumstances would have finished 12-3, Kakuryu 11-4, Abi definitely 8-7 and Kotonowaka of course 9-6. So all these withdrawals hit me the hardest. I'm 100% sure this cost me my 4th Oracle Yusho   ;-)

Lol. Another one of those ones that were impossible to win. And that muppet Fuj naturally gets 14! I swear I get about 3 or 4 such bouts per basho.

I think that I am about to collect my 18th career Shukun-sho in Hoshitori.  (I don't think that I can be caught, or go MK at this stage of the basho.)

Outstanding!

Is there still a mailing list for RotoSumo, or did it die out sometime 10 years ago or so? (Beardeddisguise...)

I have been maintaining the Banzuke on this forum since around 2015 that have been used for the Super Banzuke overall competition.  There should be two threads for most basho - one banzuke and one results.  Recently I've moved it to one thread per basho.  The automation in place by Doitsuyama runs everything else.  I was given an email to send the banzuke to Doitsuyama to upload, but after the first two weren't put onto the website, I didn't bother trying any more.

Also, while I'm posting here I might as well say that I have no plans on playing anything other than GTB for the foreseeable future.  I just don't have the inclination to spin up all the apparatus of my engine, and while I'm following along with the results of the Ozumo tournament, I really don't care any more about the games.  GTB doesn't use the bout history information at all (and it wouldn't help) so it's not much of a problem to still play that.  There might come a time where things change, I'll scrape all the results since I stopped caring earlier this year and start again.  Those who prepare banzukes shouldn't take this as an official retirement - it might end up being next basho that I return, as I expect one thing eating up a lot of my time to have ended by then, but there are obviously plenty of other things too that have priority.

I still plan to do the RotoSumo banzuke though.  Again, that's not connected to the rest of the effort updating the prediction engine; its computation system is an altogether separate piece of machinery.

I am particularly enjoying @Fujisan's basho in Bench so far... (Dribbling...)

I am not gloating Pandatroll but I particularly enjoyed beating you and sending you to MK on day 14

 You should be ashamed  of yourself. 

Isn't this the second time in a  row I beat you.(W00t,w00t,w00t...)

Lolol. With three kyujo rikishi and no Terunofuji in my team I have been resigned to a losing record for over a week. Actually getting 7 was my target. But I am happy for you. You should celebrate. I hear Juryo is very nice in September... (Dribbling...)

My Oracle hopes are pinned on one unlikely bout: Daiamami vs Midorifuji. If Amami loses, no chance of top three. If he wins, a fair chance of top three. Gulp. And I picked Midori in Toto.

Yeah, I was just looking at this at the same time and determined it's my most important bout too, but I'm for Midorifuji. And I have Daiamami in Juryo Game. Oh well, g'luck!

It was a lot of fun to be back in the fantasy sumo games this basho. All the games haven't been scored yet, but it went something like this:

Pre-basho

  • GTB - 8-7, just. I will gambarize and do better next time.
  • Sekitori-Oracle - 31/57, probably makekoshi. Ditto.
  • Totoro's Hoshitori - not scored yet. Middling, around 8-7. Ditto.
  • SalaryCap - 17/57. I am happy with that.
  • UDH - not scored yet. I was never good at this game.

Daily

  • Sekitori-Toto - 5-10, can only get better.
  • Sumo Game - 10-5. Was in the makushita yusho race but finished with three losses. Still, my best result this basho.
  • Sekitori-Quad - 7-8, 30/69. I know how unforgiving this game can be and I finished quite strongly, so I am fine with that.
  • Bench Sumo - 8-7. Bench Sumo is IMHO the king of fantasy sumo games so getting kachi-koshi is a good feeling!
