Sanyaku Carousel Aki 2021

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Sanyaku Carousel Aki 2021! We are back to two yokozuna for the division, and back to two ozeki as well, with one of them kadoban. Will we have major upsets early on, or will the Boss properly show up? I am hoping that we can get more players to join the game for this basho, this is a fun game to try and predict who the winners will be and how many points you can stack up. Who will be our winner this time, or will Pitinosato get a three-peat? Let's find out in this basho's edition of the Sanyaku Carousel!

The goal of Sanyaku Carousel is to correctly guess the last five matches of the day, which will consist sanyaku matches in the makuuchi division. The person with the most points at the end of the basho is declared the yusho winner. The scoring system will work in a unique way, as for each progressive day, each match will be worth a different amount of points depending on the designated top 5 wrestler. The matches and points assigned to each top 5 wrestler will rotate for every five days, and for each progressive stage of the basho, the scoring will increase too! As the scoring increases, your chances of staging a comeback could also happen. 

Rules:

1. Choose who you think will be winner of the last five matches of each day
2. Your score for the day will be based on which wrestler wins the matches that you pick for the day
3. The player with the best cumulative score at the end of the basho will be declared the yusho winner
4. Match scores rotate for each day in a five day cycle based on the points assigned to the top 5 wrestlers, and with three rotations for the basho. For each rotation, the scoring will also multiply, with rotation two being worth 2x points, and rotation three being worth 3x points
5. Scoring is as below for each day and rotation
     - Day 1 --> Wrestler #1: 1 point, Wrestler #2: 2 points, Wrestler #3: 3 points, Wrestler #4: 4 points, Wrestler #5: 5 points
     - Day 2 --> Wrestler #1: 2 points, Wrestler #2: 3 points, Wrestler #3: 4 points, Wrestler #4: 5 points, Wrestler #5: 1 point

6. Bonus points are awarded if players correctly guess all five matches for the day. This bonus is equal to the max point match of the day depending on the rotation (5, 10, 15)
7. Submissions will be conducted via Survey Monkey but entries by forum post, forum pm or email will be accepted
8. Submissions will be due by 4pm JST for the day. Late submissions will not be accepted
9. In the event that two or more of the top 5 wrestlers face each other, the next ranked wrestler(s) will be substituted into the carousel
10. In the event that a top 5 wrestler goes kyujo, the next ranked wrestler will be substituted into the carousel
11. Any matches that have a kyujo involved will be scored as 0. No changes will be made to the survey link so you can fill out as normal. A kyujo will not affect bonus points if player gets remaining matches correct
12. In the case of a tie score, we will go to the tiebreakers to determine the winner. The tiebreaker criteria will be listed below
13. Bonus points are not counted towards the tiebreaker
14. The maximum achievable score for this game is 450 points for mainscoring, with an additional 150 bonus points. Kekka will be determined based on the average combined scores of our players, with a win for every 30 points scored above the average

*Rule 14 kekka scoring method has been revised

Welcome to the game, Fujisan! The consensus of Meisei took out everyone for some extra points, with Tameiki coming the closest to having an extra ten points to his day 1 score. However he will still settle for the lead, two points ahead of newcomer Fujisan

Fujisan and chishafuwaku were one match away from getting the first bonus points of the game this basho. Small consolation where they both jump into the lead. The opinion on Takakeisho is getting divided now, will he get a first win or go kyujo?

Day 5 link:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RD5JL59

Point assignees:

1 point - Shodai (O1E)
2 point - Takakeisho (O1W)
3 point - Mitakeumi (S1E)
4 point - Meisei (S1W)
5 point - Terunofuji (Y1W)

The torikumi is not out as of this post, most likely to do with the Tsurugisho withdrawal. Please check the fixtures when they are out before making your picks. I will update the link if I have time to reflect the assignee opponents. Thanks for your understanding

In the survey there is Hakuho instead of Terunofuji

But I think we know who it should be :-)
