Looking at the Masters...it's still incredibly open.  No one is dominating at all as far as I can see.  If I'm right, with a good day tomorrow I could even win this, which would be ludicrous considering how badly I've played.  Scott has leaked a lot of points and Tipspiel and SG are now the only big scorers.  He MAY get lucky in PO and Bingo with a good last day - that happens sometimes.  Rando is in a few but I don't think he can score big points...same goes for Ganzo - he really needs ISP and Toto to go well.

A Takayasu win tomorrow along with an upset of Giku by Yoshikaze along with wins for Shin, Mita, Oki and Aoiyama could spell a nice haul for the Panda.  Now watch the opposite happen!

GAMBARIMASU!

Losses across the board, except in DST, where another comfortably above-average day keeps my lead at 5 points, and spreads out the herd behind me a little bit.  With only one more day to go, anything but a complete meltdown should keep the yusho safe.  And now 10th in Odd after more perhaps ill-advised gambling.  (Of course, I also tell myself that if I'd just sat on my points, everyone else would have bet and won.)

Should be SOME points in SG, but to win in the Baka Cup and bring myself up to 11-4 would either be a big jun-yusho split or a smaller tie for 3rd and some good points.

I think those and Salarycap are my last chances for points now.  Perhaps I'll keep tortoising my way with about 30 points most basho.

Lucky win in SG keeps me in the running for jun yusho and 12 wins - Masters points are the priority, of course, but 12 wins would leave me needing ten in May for an Ozeki promotion (if I'm in sanyaku). The other dailies are a flop - the only chance would be a big win in Odd Sumo.  I was gutted today that none of the judges noticed Takayasu cheating during that mawashi matta - he moved his hand to a better position.  If Takarafuji had won, I'd have picked up a big Odd Sumo win!

Norizo and Hoshitori all look good and I also have a chance of yusho or jun yusho in Oracle, although Choshu Yuki has a slight advantage now after I had a nightmare in Makuuchi today.  Hironoumi and Rando are also up there, I think.  A jun yusho for Takayasu would be good for Salarycap and I'm hoping for sansho for him and Chiyoshoma.  That's about it.  But a lucky day tomorrow could bring in quite a few points despite my horrendous overall performance.

Still laughing about getting Scott on day 15 when we are 7-7!  Brilliant!

GAMBARIMASU!

First of all, a hearty congrats to Hal, who wrapped up the Juryo yusho today with ease.  He hasn't scored all that well and has had a very easy slate of opponents and his success is basically down to being the tie-break king - he won 7 out of 7!  Amazing!  He may even get a bump up to Makuuchi - see later.

Panda won again but is now almost certainly out of the yusho race on points as Kaiomitsuki is 5 points ahead.  If only Seisset had picked the obvious ones today, namely not a man with one arm (Kise) and a man almost certain to face a henka from a guy who just wants to win (Giku) - there would still be hope.  But even if I won, I wouldn't deserve it - I like the yusho to go to the high scorers - and Takanosushi and Kaiomitsuki have done very well.  Fair play.  Scott lost today to Rupe and - in a hilarious twist of fate - gets to face the Panda tomorrow for the Baka Cup decider!  It's like a film script!  Jan also won and will be hoping for one more tomorrow as the difference in Masters points will be immense.  Seb won one to limit the damage...as did Owl.  Renaud fell again to a strong opponent, and he's been very unlucky with that this tournament.  Ganzo fell short but has a chance again tomorrow for KK.  Gary lost and has had similar bad luck to Renaud - MK for him too.  And Rando won again to get number 9.

In Juryo congrats also must go to Chankoyama, who has picked brilliantly the last few days and therefore greatly deserves her likely promotion to Makuuchi...hopefully she'll win again tomorrow to make sure.  Mark also went KK.  Good lad.  Ronnie won and is 7-7 so it's a big day tomorrow.

Well done also to Stefan for his KK today!  Jezz won too but it's just damage control now.

Wins tomorrow will probably guarantee promotion for Chankoyama and Chisaiyama.  Panda and Scott may well be fighting for a sanyaku spot as well - depends on other bouts though.  Both could well be promoted anyway.  Jan is also in the running.

Good luck on senshuraku!

Strange days.  A solid win in SG for a three-way tie for 3rd, and another (but barely) above-average day in DST stretches my yusho lead from 4 points to 5.

Otherwise, nothing but slippages and broken streaks.  More missed bets in Odd just keep sending me down the top 10.  Broke the streak in Toto and ISP for 8-4 and 7-6.  Still a respectable 6-7 in TTT.  8-5 and 7-6 in Bench and Quad, respectively.  Still just inside the top 10 in Odd and Toto but the rest will require closing out with wins for a chance at even fractions of points, methinks.

A quick look at the Masters...still very open.  I noticed Rando and Ganzo a lot again so will add them into my calculations tomorrow.  Scott's lost a few points but is currently projected for 37.  Panda is projected at 31.  Susanoo desperately needs to keep winning in Quad and Toto as that's pretty much all he has.  If he does OK, he'll get 30 plus points too.  I don't see anyone dominating at all and this may well be the lowest-scoring Masters yusho score ever, which really does reflect the nature of the beast this time.

In other words, top-three finishes may well be the difference between being the bride or the bridesmaid.

The craziness continues.  Due to being busy, I wasn't able to pick my lads with my usual system today and it showed!  I just worked out my system's SG line-up and I would have had 7 (a win) so that's a catastrophic failure.  I won in Bench but that was about it...still, 7-6 is very good there with the team of donkeys I have.

Nice resurgence in Juryo Game gives me slight chances there if I have a strong finish (and Osuna keeps losing).  I look very strong in Oracle and could be top three there - perhaps even yusho.  Options in Norizo and Hoshitori too (and of course SG) but everything else is a disaster.

GAMBARMIASU!
