The Sumo Game rankings are out.

Pandaazuma falls to sekiwake but can go back to ozeki with ten wins. Kuroimori makes his sekiwake debut and can make ozeki with 12 wins. Ganzo is back at komusubi. Seb gets a nice bump up after a decent score in Aki. Owl survived thanks to his excellent week-two rally but has almost no wiggle room.  And it's congratulations to Chankoyama and Hakubayama, who are both promoted back in Makuuchi.

Hal JUST missed out on his dream and is J1E...he needs that elusive 8 to make a long-awaited Makuuchi debut.

Good luck everyone!

Goals for Kyushu:

Obviously I need to make sure I close out the World Championship.  I'm 48 points ahead of Susanoo, so it would be a travesty if I contrive to lose. My next aim is to beat Andoreasu's points record of around 259. I need only 12 points to do that so I should manage it. My final aim is to get past the 300-points mark, but I'll need 52 for that - more of a challenge. I'm definitely capable of it, but will need a Green Mawashi-level performance.

Other goals: Ten wins in SG to go back to ozeki. And I need 8 wins in TTT and Norizo Cup to keep my ranks there. Green Mawashi, of course. And the stinking Baka Cup has to go back to Scott.

It just told me it's very happy right where it is, thank you very much.

All registered.  Not any real goals I can think of, except perhaps to get back into SG sanyaku, and make a strike for ozeki in TUG.  This has been a disappointing year, after my top-10 showing in 2016.  Much too much chaos on the dohyo.

Getting points for the first time in GTB is a fine start.

Odd day indeed. My pre-basho was excellent and looks very promising, as most of the lads I've picked look to be in half decent position.  The dailies were an utter disaster, with almost all my picks going to sheeyit.  That's day one, though - and I was unlucky enough to meet Scott on a day when his machine was firing on its many cylinders.  I might sneak a win in Toto and I won TUG but everything else was a pathetic loss. All I can take from today is the fact that I would have been screwed whatever I picked, and that I now know a lot more about the condition of the lads. So...my daily games start tomorrow!

Looks like the DB requires a little bit more surgery. :/

From the results that are in so far, it's a win in SG and a day just above average in DST.  From memory, it's a win in Chaingang, and a miss in TUG.  From manually checking, it's a 5-man GBL 14-11 win in Bench.

Probably a pretty good day.

GANBARIMASU

UPDATE:  All fixed on the DB front.  Losses in ISP, Quad, and Toto.  TTT's results page is the only one not working yet, but I *think* I got a win with a ton of tiebreak points—probably like an awful lot of other people.  Best surprise was one of four won bets in Odd, for a very happy second place.

Kogaratsu has made it 6-0 against me in SG in a 6-7 loss, for 1-1.  2-0 in Bench after a comfortable 12-9.  Once again just above average in DST.  Somehow I survive to day 3 in Chaingang.  Recovered to 1-1 in ISP.  A horrid 0-2 in Toto, and some day I'll understand how the Machine can do so well at predicting everything BUT *every* bout.  Also 0-2 in TTT.  Oy.

Just waiting for Quad and Odd to greet the new day.

Oh, and 2-0 in the Baka Cup after a 6-6 tiebreak win.

Renaud and Miyako are flying the STI flag. Renaud actually meets the Panda tomorrow but on current form, he won't be very worried. Special mention to Jan, who is having an utter nightmare despite scoring very well. Today he fell to another 9 from in-form heya mate Scott. Chisha and Ronnie are also yet to score that first win.

Another abysmal day, although I at least managed to sneak wins in Toto and SG, both vital at this stage. The unthinkable really is possible...Susanoo is improving everywhere while the Panda is hopelessly crippled by the loss of Aoiyama, who Susanoo avoided in his pre-basho selections.  So I'm going to need points from wherever I can get them...which probably means the dailies.

And it's getting silly again in the Baka Cup. 3-0 now.  My SG picking has basically been awful for the last six months...really need to address this.  As Scott says, it is really weird that he is 0-3 in Toto but still scores so well in the H2H games.  Will try to stem the bleeding tomorrow.

It appears, similar to the Panda, most of my pre-basho hopes snapped along with Aoiyama.

A nice recovery in my head-to-head record against Kuroimoiri, where I'm now at 2-7.  Took my first loss in Bench this basho, to Norizo.  Going to feel Aoiyama's loss there, too.  Managed a zero in the occasional-but-nonetheless-comical inverted averages day in DST, so it's back to fighting back above the KK/MK line there.  1-2 in ISP, 0-3 in Toto.  The results page for TTT is blowing up again, but I know I missed on the Shohozan bout, so it's going to be 0-3 there, too.  Probably a little early to start worrying about being kadoban, because I think there were only two players at 2-0 yesterday, so an effective KK there shouldn't be out of the question.  Now a comfy 2-1 in Quad, and a second (albeit slightly cheesy) winning bet in Odd has me in first place!

Chankoyama is now our only unbeaten player after Renaud had an off day. She is also the sole leader in Makuuchi. Keep it up! Scott, Rupe and Hal win again. Everyone else is at parity or lower.  Ronnie was droning and has missed the last two days of Toto so I'm a bit concerned. Hope he's OK.

Mixed day for the Panda. Nice to win in SG as always but I still need 8/11, which is almost impossible in sanyaku. Especially the way I'm picking this basho. Lost most of the dailies but some of the pre-basho games look good - basically, the ones in which Aoiyama's withdrawal is not a major factor.  I have serious potential in Hoshitori and Paper Oyakata, especially if Hokutofuji takes a few ozeki/yok scalps.  Oracle as always looks OK, but my decision to predict 6-9 for Takayasu, who was supposed to be badly injured, may well bite me.

Susanoo is flying back in quite a few games as he has Takakeisho quite prominently and no Aoiyama. He is going to get Masters points in Roto and FS for sure.  I will definitely need to pick up a few points or he might overtake me, unbelievable as that may seem.

With the exceptionally glaring exceptions of Toto and TTT (0-4 each) and a missed bet in Odd, it's a strong day of wins!  3-1 in SG, Bench, and Quad, and still setting the yusho pace in Odd.  Nicely above average in DST but still haven't made it back above KK/MK yet.

If it weren't for Odd, the highlight would surely be the equally exceptional 4-0 in the Baka Cup.
