Comment:
WOW! All I had to do was match my opponent's picks (except for hayateumi) while ensuring that I put a lower wrestler at the top. Doing so would have guaranteed a victory. Still, I couldn't bring myself to do that. I felt I had to earn it by choosing rikishi who I actually thought would win. I am in the same situation today and despite the close 5-5 win yesterday, I will again play jibun no sumo. I suppose my opponent's picks do affect my strategy in that I try to avoid picking both the rikishi he has chosen AND the rikishi they oppose. I see the opponents of the chosen rikishi as a double edged sword. In trying to keep up with my opponents win total, it becomes twice as hard if I chose a rikishi who loses to one of my opponent's. So, even though I like Akebono, Kaio, Toki, Tosanoumi and Miyabiyama today, I must pass on them. After all, a win is a win is a win....
