Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Kyushu 2022

Recommended Posts

And late again, so we'll have the Monday deadline this time as well, just in case.

The lineup for Kyushu 2022:

 1. Ryuo            9
 2. Wakatakakage    7  [score?]
 3. Chiyosakae      7
 4. Ryuden          6
 5. Kinbozan        6*
 6. Chiyotora       6
 7. Inoue           6
 8. Hoshoryu        5  [score?]
 9. Hokuseiho       5
10. Asashinjo       5
11. Takakeisho      4  [score?]
12. Kiribayama      4  [score?]
13. Kotonowaka      4
14. Roga            4

TB: [pick?]

(* marks rikishi with no makekoshi since debut)

The scoring and thus your game assignment:

  • For sanyaku: Please predict an exact record for each rikishi. The target record will be calculated after the deadline and will be chosen so that it bisects the predictions as evenly as possible. The predictions will then be converted into + and - votes as usual; one point for each correct prediction.
  • For lower-ranked rikishi: Please predict for each rikishi if he will finish KK or MK; one point for each correct prediction.

(For clarification: If you're expecting an outright makekoshi for one of the sanyaku high-rankers, just predict MK, exact records are only needed on the kachikoshi side of things.)

First tie-breaker: From among those 14 guys up there and the further 13 rikishi who are currently just shy of a 5-KK streak (6 'veterans' + Covid-extended Nishikikuni + 4 maezumo newcomers + tsukedashi Kanzaki and Hatsuyama...whew), please guess how many KK you expect in total. Your tie-breaker guess may be anything from 0 to 27. Only exactly correct guesses qualify at this tie-breaker stage. Note: Sanyaku count as correct for the tie-breaker if they achieve KK, they do not need to meet their target records.

Next 13 tie-breakers if needed: Correctly predicted rikishi, one-by-one in ballot order, i.e. starting at Ryuo.

Extra tie-breakers, should two or more players have entered identical ballots: Proximity of their tie-breaker guesses to the correct number, followed by proximity of their sanyaku rikishi guesses to the correct records (one-by-one in ballot order).

Final tie-breaker: earliest entry.

Note: Rikishi who show up on the before-shonichi kyujo list will be excluded from scoring (even if they end up joining the basho later), so it is not necessary to re-submit your entry if you picked such a rikishi as a KK; he will not count for points anyhow. You may, however, notify me if you'd like to reduce your tie-breaker guess by one point to compensate for the "missing" rikishi. Your position on the entry list (for final tie-breaker purposes) will be deemed unchanged in this special situation. Any other changes to a ballot will be considered a new entry, with correspondingly lower priority for the final tie-breaker.

Deadline: Shonichi noon Monday 9am JST.
