Game 21 for the Haru 2022 Basho

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Welcome to Game 21 for the Haru 2022 Basho.

I am launching the game today (with my apologies for the slight delay), but Profomisakari will be back for the day to day comments.

And now, with no further ado, let's play!

 

HOW TO PLAY GAME 21

 

Shortly after the Banzuke is published, 21 potential bouts are selected by the admins. You just have to decide which bouts will or will not take place and, if they will, who you think will be the winners.

 

Each correct pick will earn you one point. If a Rikishi is listed in one of the potential bouts but never appears on the Torikumi for the 15 days of the Basho, the bout will be counted as correct for all the players. If two or more entrants end up with the same number of correct picks, the two following tiebreaker rules will apply:

  • TB1: entrants will earn TB points for their ability to spot winning outsiders (i.e. the fewer players pick up a Rikishi the more points you score) and the entrant with most TB points will be the winner.

  • TB2: if the first tiebreaker does not suffice to separate them, the entrant with the earliest submission time will be declared the winner.

 

The deadline to play is the Friday before Shonichi at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

 

If you want to play, simply click the link below. it will take you to a multiple-choice form that will offer you three choices for each bout: 

  • A if you think the first Rikishi will win

  • B if you think the second Rikishi will win

  • X if you think the bout will not take place

 

In addition to your picks and your Shikona, the form will ask for a valid email address. The reason for this request is (a) to allow the system to send you a copy of your picks and (b) to allow you to update your choices until the deadline by clicking the “Edit Response'' button that is in the email.

 

Besides, after you have submitted your choices, you will have access to global selection statistics (not individual player’s picks).

 

So, if you want to play for the upcoming Haru Basho, HERE IS THE LINK.

 

The deadline to play is Friday 11 March at 11 AM (JST), 2 AM (UTC)

 

To help you prepare your picks before getting to the form itself, here are the bouts for the upcoming Basho:

Good luck to all.

After 24 hours, we have already 6 players registered i.e., in order of appearance, Athenayama, Kellyama, Tochinofuji, Yarimotsu, Hoshotakamoto, and Chankomafuji. Special welcome to newcomer @Hoshotakamoto.

With this strong start, we can definitely aim to confirm our minimum target of 30 players.

Thank you Sakura!
This night I oversaw the mistake.
I cannot corect the table, because I haven't the original players picks.
I've mailed to Tameiki.

So, after clearing up a few ambiguities, we can now start with the day's results.
Day 1at first  is very easy. There was no game 21 bout.

All have 0 points and also 0 tiebreaker points.
According to the rules decides the tiebreaker 2.

So Athenayama
leads because he made his picks first.

I think I must not publish this with a table!
But I don't think it will stay that way.

Tomorrow we'll have the first bout for our game.

Nr A - B A B X Day Result
1 S1w Abi - M1e Daieisho 24 5 0    
2 M15e Akua - M14w Yutakayama 5 23 1    
3 M10w Aoiyama - M13w Chiyonokuni 7 17 5    
4 M13e Chiyomaru - M5w Ishiura 7 10 12    
5 M8e Chiyoshoma - M11e Myogiryu 7 19 3    
6 M12w Chiyotairyu - M6w Kotonowaka 7 12 10    
7 M4w Endo - K1w Hoshoryu 7 22 0    
8 M6e Hokutofuji - M7e Takayasu 17 12 0    
9 M2e Ichinojo - M3e Onosho 21 8 0    
10 M17w Ichiyamamoto - M11w Terutsuyoshi 14 10 5    
11 M17e Kagayaki - M15w Tochinoshin 6 22 1    
12 M4e Kiribayama - S1e Wakatakakage 13 16 0 D4 A
13 M12e Kotoeko - M8w Sadanoumi 16 8 5    
14 M16w Kotokuzan - M14e Kotoshoho 4 23 2    
15 M3w Meisei - Y1e Terunofuji 3 25 1    
16 O2w Mitakeumi - O1w Takakeisho 19 9 1    
17 M7w Okinoumi - M9e Tobizaru 12 17 0 D4 B
18 M10e Shimanoumi - M9w Wakamotoharu 15 13 1 D2 B
19 O1e Shodai - M2w Tamawashi 18 11 0 D6  
20 K1e Takanosho - M1w Ura 19 10 0    
21 M5e Takarafuji - M16e Nishikigi 11 2 16    

On day 1, 3 and 5 were no game 21 bouts.
On day 2 was 1 game 21 bout.
On day 4 were 2 game 21 bouts.
On day 6 is again 1 game 21 bout.

Well, it looks like my boldest prediction was correct! Tamawashi has indeed unscrewed the bolts holding our yokozuna's knee together and we won't see a meisei-terunofuji bout!
