This is the thread for the Pick The Yusho Winners (PTYW) game for  Aki 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.

Until further notice, the game will run just as it has the last several times. I will compile the results and post them as best as I can on this thread.

This is a pre-basho game where each player selects a rikishi from each of 8 sections of the banzuke. The player earns points for each win, each kachikoshi, and each yusho earned by their team of 8 rikishi. The sections of the banzuke are these:

Sanyaku (Y through K)

Maegashira

Juryo

Upper Makushita (Ms1-15 ) (not including any tsukedashi of any rank)

Lower Makushita (Ms16-60 plus tsukedashi if any - including Ms 10 or 15)

Sandanme (plus tsukedashi if any)

Jonidan

Jonokuchi


That's it! Simple to understand, difficult to master. The hallmarks of any engaging game.

Please send your 8 selections to me before the beginning of action on Shonichi.

Itachi: matsuorussellj@gmail.com or by pm here at the forum

As a reminder, I am only a temporary caretaker of this game until Oshirokita can address the reconstruction of his system. All banzuke, website, and records updates will be on hold until then but the game itself and results postings will continue here on this thread.

Good luck with your picks.

The original intention of splitting the Makushita was to differentiate between those capable of being promoted to Juryo versus those not in the 'promotion zone' (since MsTd15 did not get promoted to Juryo even with a 7-0 on one occasion). To the best of my knowledge, no MsTd10 has had a debut 7-0 yet to test whether they would get promoted, however MsTd10 wasn't a thing when I created this game (or I wasn't aware of it at the time). Also, I keep records of the Top 100 rikishi by banzuke position and this lines up nicely now at Ms15w after the last sekitori expansion (particularly since Tsukedashi rikishi are not actually 'on' the banzuke).

If Itachi and the other players feel that this distinction is no longer useful, then I would not oppose changing the rules some time in the future to allow Tsukedashi of the appropriate rank to be treated as that rank.

I don't have any strong opinion about the tsukedashi rule.

Whatever the founder, Oshirokita, decides is fine with me.

I wasn't aware, or I had forgotten that there could be Ms10 tsukedashi! I hope I haven't missed any while compiling the results.
