@WAKATAKEWhy not trust Athenayama and award him a win? After all, it was in the middle of the European night, when you notified the players about the situation with less than five hours to resend the pick..

Day 2 (and so on): Ura

Thanks @Flohru but it's ok. Let's not turn that into a Greek tragedy. ;-)

Rules are the same for everyone, sometimes it can give the advantage to some, the next day to some others. I'm fine and I'm motivated for the rest of the basho. Let's move on and forget about this.  :-)

@Flohru @Athenayama the way Athena had written it out I thought he had missed the original submission deadline, but if he missed resubmitting then I am all for giving him the win. It's my fault that the link was wrong in the first place, then finding out this new thing about Survey Monkey wanting paid upgrade to view additional submissions! So Athena, please let me know who your pick was on day 1 so that I can count you among the players. The more there is the better anyway!

Thanks @WAKATAKE all is fine, really. Yes I submitted on time for day 1 but I didn't see your latest post here before the morning.  Just for history my pick was Churanoumi on day 1. To be really honest I don't want you to give me the win, I won't feel good about it. Let's forget all about that incident. And don't worry, at no point there was an issue whether I would keep on playing or not. You won't get rid of me so easily. :-D
All that being cleared, does this mean that from now on we must submit our picks here? Cause I already submitted my pick for day 2 through the Survey Monkey.

I understand, if that is what you wish that I will abide by your decision. Again I apologize for the mistake there 

Yes the link for day 2 is still good, I made sure of that myself. There is still enough room for everyone to submit their picks on the new Survey Monkey link, unless somehow I get an additional 10 people that want to play on day 2 making this a 25 player game...

Day 1 results:

Ikioi - win (wolfgangho)
Shohozan - loss (Tenshinhan)
Ryuko - win (Akogyokuseki, Tameiki)
Ura - win (Benihana, Gaijingai, Fujisan, Achiyama, Gansekiiwa)
Oho - loss (WAKATAKE, Flohru, chishafuwaku, ScreechingOwl)
Kotoyuki - loss (Houmanumi)

A shaky start to the game (not just with the players but the game administration) but somehow we are getting through it. 8 of 14 in the field was successful in their entries (with a 15th player getting their entry missed but waiving the appeal filed on their behalf). We also get to see the return of absent members such as Gansekiiwa and Houmanumi!

Storylines related to streaks from last basho are as follows. Four players had active streaks from November 2020, which were Tameiki (10), WAKATAKE (9), Achiyama (5), Flohru (1). Day 1 of Hatsu 2021 saw WAKATAKE and Flohru see their streaks break and will be starting over on day 2. Tameiki extends his winning streak to 11 now and is in sole 7th place on the top 10 list. Achiyama extends his streak to 6 now.

Active streaks from November 2020
11 - Tameiki
6 - Achiyama

Active streaks for Hatsu 2021
1 - wolfgangho, Akogyokuseki, Tameiki, Benihana, Gaijingai, Fujisan, Achiyama, Gansekiiwa

Oh I misunderstood, I thought default one was the 'main pick', so put me down as a Kotoyuki/loss.

So yeah, going forward I'll default with Kotoyuki, if he's out, Tsurugisho, if he's out, Ura -- am I understanding that right?

If you want Kotoyuki as your main pick throughout then that is completely fine, and yes he would default to Tsurugisho then Ura if he has to go kyujo.

@wolfgangho, @Flohru, @Fujisan, @ScreechingOwl please post your 1st, 2nd and 3rd defaults. Wolf has Ikioi for 1st default but that's it. You can post here or use the day 3 link below.

@wolfgangho in your previous submission you had Enho and Ishiura in your defaults but they are kyujo. Right now you only have Oho as default. Would you like to add 2nd and 3rd defaults?
