By the way, Scott, what's the score in the Baka Cup?  I know I lost today, but I've lost track being busy with work.

I'm pretty sure you're just ahead 4-3, after I made it even on day 2, and then a 10-10 tiebreak win yesterday, plus today's win.

You're right...I just checked.  4-3 it is.  We will meet on day 14 so let's hope it's still open at that point.

Gary and Rupe march on to 7-1 and they are now hot favourites to go all the way.  Only Miyako is within striking distance. at 6-2 after another win today.

Mark now shares the lead in Juryo.  Mari shares it in Makushita...and Jezz is one win off the pace there.

An irritating day where I should have done a lot better but was done in once again by bad luck.  Sumo Game is the bad luck king at the moment, where I ran into my 8th out of 8 AAD and lost yet again on a very unlucky tie-break.  Just not getting any breaks there at all.  I'm flying in the points charts but it's obviously not enough.  I'll just have to keep picking well and hope for a bit of luck, starting tomorrow.

Elsewhere I was done in by various idiots, most notably Okinoumi.  Tochiozan's idiocy actually worked in my favour in Bench (although it killed me in SG) where he doomed Kuroimori to the revenge loss he feared.  4-4 in Bench is just not good enough but I suppose I can build on it.  Oki screwed me in an important game too: TTT.  The pre-bashos remain good and as most of my picks have had their Y-O schedule now, they could come through nicely in week two.  That could yield results in several games and give me the green.

So...basically it's been a good basho so far, but it's been spoiled greatly by my appalling Sumo Game luck...I wanted a decent basho there...but now it's damage limitation.

4-4 in the Baka Cup - good seven from Scott today.  He brilliantly avoided Okinoumi and Tochiozan, giving him the easy win.

After wins almost everywhere (except Toto... and Odd), I actually am 4-4 in every daily game that has W-L records.  As long as the more-or-less winning streak continues, I might scrape up some points yet.  (Besides Norizo Cup... if that holds.)

Just had a look at the green mawashi situation.  I'll be adding Konosato in tomorrow along with maybe Andoreasu and Kitakachiyama as they look to be in contention in a few games.

At this halfway stage, according to my projections, Gurowake is slightly ahead of the Panda and Norizo.  Chankoyama is up there too despite the very few games she plays.  Ganzo has plenty of potential too if he plays well in week two.  Taka is not far off either, and the same goes for Susanoo.  Very unusually, Panda is mostly garnering points in the pre-basho games and is only in contention for points in TTT on the daily front (with slight chances in Quad and Bench)...but the other contenders all figure prominently in the dailies...so the pressure is off me a bit as I can't do much about the pre-basho games!  It makes a nice change!

This could change quite a bit, but the green mawashi winner is highly likely to be among the above names.

... Ganzo has plenty of potential too if he plays well in week two... 

As already mentioned in Sumo Forum:  "if".

Now watch the second week and how all this potential (as usual) will vaporize... Aki 2008 was the only Basho where I could finish successfully after a great first week. Way too often I have wasted any chances for another Green Mawashi in 2nd week since then.

Managed to lose everywhere today... except SG, the Baka Cup, and TUG.  Which are lovely consolation prizes.

Hanging on in Norizo Cup, too.

Congrats to Mark for his KK today, and Rupert and Mari for their yesterday...I had no time for comments yesterday.

And a special mention to Chisha for an excellent 10, beating Jan very cruelly on his birthday!

The bad luck continues for Seisset and Owl...Panda too, but he managed a rare win today.  Rupert now shares the lead in Makuuchi after a limp loss to Seb.  Gary is on his usual losing streak collapse but is still only one win off the pace.  Mark flies the STI flag in Juryo.  And Mari is one of the few leaders in Makushita, after defeating a major rival today.  So we have the potential for a sweep.

It's probably just as well I had no time for comments yesterday as it was one of the worst gaming days in memory.  Lost everything and the pre-basho games went south too. Absolutely miserable day it was.  Today was much better, with vital wins in TTT and SG.  Picked well in Bench but it was impossible to win today - looks like my luck has spread over to that game too.  4-6 in both H2H games is a real nightmare.  Goeido saved me in SG today (sorry, Ganzo) so I have to beat four out of five of the remaining sanyaku to KK - the obvious goal.

The pre-basho games also recovered and I'm in contention for yusho in Oracle and Hoshitori, with lots of potential in Juryo Game and several others too.  My Masters performance heavily depends on the pre-basho scene so I need my young samurai picks to win three or four out of the remaining five and maybe pick up a few prizes.  Got high hopes for Ura and Onosho...maybe Hokutofuji too.

And back to 5-5 in the Baka Cup!  Always close!  Hope it's still open on Saturday when I meet Scott!

Wins most everywhere EXCEPT SG and Toto (and Odd), for 5-5 just about everywhere (except Toto, 4-6).

What a strange basho.

Rupert lost due to the Hakuho upset, as many others did, and is now one off the yusho pace along with Gary, who got KK today.  Congrats also to Stefan who picked up his 8th.  The bad luck trio all lost again and Seisset fell to an MK.  Quite a few of STI are on the brink of a negative record so we need a strong finish.  Mark lost in Juryo so there's just one leader there now.  And Mari lost in Makushita (again, thanks to Hakuho) but she's not out of it yet.

My astoundingly improbable SG basho continues with opp AAD 11 out of 11.  The most irritating thing is that every day my opps seem to pick idiots in fifty-fifty bouts and get away with it...literally every time.  When I see Takekaze or some other fool on my opp's list, I know for certain he'll win in some dumb or lucky fashion, as he has the last few days.  It's a shame as it is my shin ozeki basho but I feel no shame really as I have scored well and nobody would have done any better.  My aim is to finish top of the scoring list or at least in the top three.  Doubt I'll get 8 now though

Elsewhere it was so-so.  Got a few wins but the dailies are mostly screwed for Masters points.  Oracle and Hoshitori look like very likely yushos so I'll be hoping to pick up a few more points elsewhere.  60+ is very possible.  But I doubt I'll beat Gurowake for the Green Mawashi, although he had a daily-games nightmare today.

A win in the Baka Cup makes it 6-5.  Can Scott respond?
