good day all,
The 2017 TORCH prize is ready to be sent out to the winner. We had 25point bullseye picks for both rank (from
Nantonoyama
) and rikishi (from
Kiritsubaki
). Both were tied for the lead so congrats to both players. Will they remain tied after all the points are tallied?
There were fewer players who accumulated TORCH MATCH POINTS this year, but they are all bunched tightly with the coleaders (
Nantonoyama & Kiritsubaki
) having only nine points. It’s now time to award the endofyear FINAL TORCH POINTS. To recap the rules for endofyear TORCH POINTS, 25 points are awarded if you picked the FINAL TORCH position. 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 ENDOFYEAR TORCH POINTS for RANK.
Nantonoyama
made the correct TORCH RANK pick at MAKUSHITA 10 WEST for 25 points; but
Saruyama
was only one rank off the mark for 10 points. In all, 13 players earned FINAL TORCH RANK points.
MAKUSHITA 4 EAST........(1 point: Jason & kuroimori)
MAKUSHITA 4 WEST........(2 points: ryafuji)
MAKUSHITA 5 EAST........(3 points: Itachi)
MAKUSHITA 5 WEST........
MAKUSHITA 6 EAST........
MAKUSHITA 6 WEST........
MAKUSHITA 7 EAST........(5 points: Ayagawa)
MAKUSHITA 7 WEST........(6 points: Taiga)
MAKUSHITA 8 EAST........
MAKUSHITA 8 WEST........(7 points: Domichi)
MAKUSHITA 9 EAST........
MAKUSHITA 9 WEST........(9 points: Hoshihitomi)
MAKUSHITA 10 EAST.......(10 points: Saruyama)
FINAL TORCH RANK: MAKUSHITA 10 WEST
(25 points: Nantonoyama)
MAKUSHITA 11 EAST.......
MAKUSHITA 11 WEST.......
MAKUSHITA 12 EAST.......(8 points: shimodahito)
MAKUSHITA 12 WEST.......
MAKUSHITA 13 EAST.......
MAKUSHITA 13 WEST.......
MAKUSHITA 14 EAST.......
MAKUSHITA 14 WEST.......(4 points: Obana)
MAKUSHITA 15 EAST.......
MAKUSHITA 15 WEST.......
MAKUSHITA 16 EAST.......(3 points: Kiritsubaki)
MAKUSHITA 16 WEST.......
MAKUSHITA 17 EAST.......
The FINAL TORCH RANK points put
Nantonoyama
into the lead with 34 points,
Kiritsubaki
&
shimodahito
tied for 2nd place with 12 points, and
Suruyama
in 3rd place with 10 points.
Next, the ENDOFYEAR TORCH POINTS for RIKISHI.
Kiritsubaki
scored 25 points with the correct TORCH RIKISHI pick, TOCHIRYU. In all, 12 players earned FINAL TORCH RIKISHI points.
TAKANOSHO......
TAKAGENJI......(1 point: charliki)
YAGO...........
KITATAIKI......
TOBIZARU.......
KITAHARIMA.....
KIZENRYU.......
DAISHOHO.......
SHIMANOUMI.....
MITORYU........(4 points: Ryoshishokunin)
AKUA...........
SATOYAMA.......(5 points: Yubinhaad)
KAGAMIO........
ASAHISHO.......(7 points: Fatakiyama)
ASABENKEI......
KIZAKI.........(8 points: Gurowake)
HOKAHO.........
KOTODAIGO......
TOCHIMARU......
AKISEYAMA......(10 points: Nantonoyama)
DEWAHAYATE.....
TAKARYU........
FINAL TORCH RIKSHI: TOCHIHIRYU
...(25 points: Kiritsubaki)
WAKAMOTOHARU...
TAKAYOSHITOSHI.
WAKATAKAKAGE...
GOKUSHINDO.....
HAKUYOZAN......
TOYONOSHIMA....(9 points: Pandaazuma)
JOKORYU........
ENHO...........
TAMAKI.........(7 points: Tsuchinoninjin)
TERAO..........(6 points: Ajisen)
OIWATO.........
IRODORI........
AKINOHANA......
TENKAIHO.......
FUKUGORIKI.....
SHONANNOUMI....(3 points: Senkoho)
TSURUBAYASHI...
NOGAMI.........
FUJIAZUMA......(2 points: ryafuji)
SHIBA..........
HAMAYUTAKA.....
DAISHORYU......
With all the points added, our final standings:
44 points – Nantonoyama
37 points – Kiritsubaki
12 points – Ryoshishokunin
12 points – shimodahito
10 points – Saruyama
9 points – Hoshihitomi
9 points – Itachi
9 points – Pandaazuma
8 points – Gurowake
7 points – Achiyama
7 points – Domichi
7 points – Fatakiyama
7 points – Pitinosato
7 points – Sukubidubidu
7 points – Tsuchinoninjin
6 points – Ajisen
6 points – Jason
6 points – kuroimori
6 points – Taiga
6 points – Yubinhaad
5 points – Ayagawa
5 points – Tenshinhan
4 points – Chisaiyama
4 points – Obana
4 points – Ryafuji
4 points – Shokikogi
4 points – Terarno
3 points – Senkoho
2 points – hitotsuboshi
1 point – Gibuten
The two 25point leaders had quite a contest. With
Kiritsubaki
getting 3 rank points,
Nantonoyama
pulled out what may be the closest TORCH pick ever. His rank pick was bullseye; and rikishi pick was just three away from bullseye, but 10 points. I should also make note that this is
Nantonoyama
’s rookie year in TORCH, so big congrats to to him and
Kiritsubaki
.
Kudos also to
ryafuji
, another rookie, who was the only other player to pick up FINAL TORCH RANK and FINAL TORCH RIKISHI points.
…For those keeping tabs on how often the 25point TORCH bullseye is achieved:
2011 – 3
2012 – 1
2015 – 3
2016 – 3
2017 – 2
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 2018
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.
