   Start-of-Kyushu Rank: MAKUSHITA 1 EAST

If Tokihayate wins and there are an even number of sekitori withdrawals between now and Day 5, the Torch will likely get paired into Juryo again, probably against Oshoma, who 2 people have.  If they don't need a fill-in in Juryo or Shiden wins, the next torch match should be against Shonannoumi (who two other people have), who is already 2-0 due to winning his Day 2 match in Juryo.  They actually did it right this time unlike last time when they penciled in Tomokaze to fight his first match in Juryo Day 2 and then they didn't need a sekitori fill-in.

There's still a chance that my pick of Daishomaru might end up with it, but he'll likely have to get past Asanoyama, so I think I'm out of contention there unless the Torch bounces back from Juryo onto someone with a loss in Makushita.  J6 isn't looking too likely either, but if the Torch heads into Juryo it'll at least have a chance, and no one else with my rank has any points yet either, so maybe...

As I mentioned in another thread, the real reason was that Asanoyama was sent up to juryo for his match a day early, and so wasn't available to face Shonannoumi.

So we have another chance for a lower level scorer to pull a win out of the fire with his bullseye pick.  I did it in 2019, and ChickyStarr did it again in 2021.  Can Obana join the club?

good day all,
  
The 2022 TORCH prize is ready for the winner.   The TORCH MATCH point leader is Ryoshishokunin with 9 points.  But now it’s time to award the end-of-year FINAL TORCH POINTS.  To recap the rules for end-of-year TORCH POINTS, 25 points are awarded if you picked the FINAL TORCH position RANK or RIKISHI.  Additional points are awarded to the next 10 closest picks.  (10 points to the closest pick, down to 1 point for the 10th closest pick).

We’ll start with the END-OF-YEAR TORCH POINTS for RIKISHI.  Obana hits the 25-point bullseye with his TOMASHOHO pick.  And then the next ten closest rikishi picks were determined.  In all, 12 players earned FINAL TORCH RIKISHI points with Kirinoumi and Pitinosato just one-off from the bullseye.

Next, the END-OF-YEAR TORCH POINTS for RANK.   Three players, hakutorizakura & Kirinoumi & Tsubame were just 3 ranks from the unclaimed bullseye.   In all, 17 players earned FINAL TORCH RANK points!  Kudos to Akinomaki & MumboJumbo & Pitinosato & Wakatake & Obana for scoring both RIKISHI and RANK points.  And special kudo mention to Kirinoumi who was the 10-point closest in both RIKISHI and RANK; proof that this truly is a skill game. : - ).

   Congratulations to Obana, the TORCHBEARER 2022 winner.  I’ll be corresponding to send the prize. 
   For those keeping tabs on how often the 25-point TORCH bullseye is achieved:
         2011 – 3
         2012 – 1
         2015 – 3
         2016 – 3
         2017 – 2
         2018 – 2
         2019 – 1
         2021 – 1
         2022 – 1
   Thanks for participating and I hope you all can update your pick or, if a new player, submit a pick for next year. You can send your TORCHBEARER 2023 picks to me now, or wait until the Hatsu banzuke is released.  An invite (with rules for new players) will be out soon.  Pick one rank and one rikishi where you think the TORCH will be at the end of the year.  This sumo game has a prize.  New players are always welcome.

Again, thanks.
