    Games Talk Aki 2018

    I want to apologize to everybody picking me in Metasumo for an exceptionally bad basho. Apart from one lucky bet in Odd, all went down the drain for me.

    Tochinoshin vs Baruto who is stronger

    I think Baruto was stronger, and if not he’d have had the potential to be with more bodybuilding. Too bad that kind of power sumō breaks your knees.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    It has been sad to watch Kakuryū crumble when it looked like the yūshō might be his. Kisenosato surprised me, was not expecting him to do this well. I hope Hakuhō wins tomorrow for another zenshō. What’s up with Ichinojō always not even trying the first week then making a comeback kachikoshi? This guy is weird.
  5. I received the picks from Kuroimori, Jakusotsu and Wamahada, so I think the Survey works now. I also just sent the Entry Form by e-mail. Good Luck everybody on Senshuraku! Achiyama

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    A strong second week showing against mostly maegashira opponents has got him to his KK; his six defeats came against guys above him, so I don’t think he’s quite outwitted them just yet. He’s fun to watch but will need to add a few more tricks to his repertoire if he’s going to regularly and consistently trouble the Y/O.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I've heard it said confidently, several times during the last 2-3 tournaments, that the other guys are going to "figure out" Takakeisho. Any day now...just's gonna happen......any day.........
  9. Good Morning, I don’t know how I have clicked on a “Close” button? It was very late, more precisely early morning when I went to bed. In the morning, when I saw that I haven’t received a single pick, found out about it. I think I missed to send the Entry Form in an e-mail for those who wanted this option. I’ll do it right now. I opened the Survey right now. Let me know if it isn’t working. Sorry for the inconveniences. Regards, Achiyama

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    Yes - underdemotion has been the trend for resolving banzuke difficulties for quite some time. This is true within the ranks of a given division also.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    I agree, in fact he came in while still recovering from a knee injury (because had he waited longer he would have been over the age limit, if I remember correctly), hence the missed maezumo stint at the start. And he often has taping on his shoulder, so he seems like one of those who has plenty of miles on the clock from his collegiate days. I adopted him into Yubinhaad-beya last year when he had a fusenpai after missing his train to the basho. Happy for Gokushindo, and Nishikido-beya is off the mark at last with their first yusho.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    M16e Kotoyuki (6-8) might remain in Makuuchi with a Day 15 win. 4 of the last 5 times an M16 got 7 wins, he stayed in Makuuchi.

    Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Slowed the bleeding in Bench to the tune of 6-8. A bad day in DST dooms me to MK there. 8-6 in ISP is already a strong finish, but too far from the top 10. Only one winner out of my last nine chosen rikishi in Odd. A great lucky win in Quad puts me in a six-way tie for 9th. A win there would be lovely. 8-6 in Toto is already nearly miraculous for me, and also too far from the top 10. 9-5 in SG is fantastic, and a tie for 8th. Another win would be lovely. Won along with practically everybody else in TTT. Currently a 9-way tie for 6th. Another win would be lovely. GANBARIMASU

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    K1w Takakeisho's (8-6) promotion to Sekiwake depends entirely on S1w Ichinojo (7-7) losing to M5e Myogiryu (8-6). Myogiryu's promotion to Komusubi depends entirely on M1w Kaisei (7-7) losing to M3e Shodai (6-8).
  23. Thanks everyone for making this a most frustrating but fun game! If I had picked day 1 and 2 in reverse order, I would have had a good result... but it"s hard enough to get 8, so I'm not unhappy. See you all next basho!

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Was a fun and entertaining basho, still drama for tomorrow as a few go for KK. Congrats to Hakahou a privalidge to see the GOAT, he still has it. Toyonoshima back in Juryo with authority and URa 6-1 moving up. Takakeisho with KK at komosubi nice job. Kise didn't embarrass himself and should be back.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    This basho has been amazing I am so sad to see it end tomorow. Hakuhou's 41 yusho, 1000th makuuchi win enough is said, he might even get another zenshou with a win tomorow. He was not even sure to enter and didn't train much. There are certain things I dislike about him but he is the GOAT no doubt. Kisenosato incredible, this guy is incredible. Got injured badly came back to get his second yusho, and now he managed to get 10 wins (11 if he wins tomorow) for his come back with his back against the wall. Not always great sumo but he fought with all his heart and that his Yokozuna's sumo too ! Tochinoshin saved his rank, Kakuryu crumbled in the end. Good basho from Goeido and Takayasu. Mitakeumi is close but not there yet, he still have a bit of hope. He needs to improve a bit more and a bit of luck too. maybe next year ? Ichinojo is settling in sanyaku with Mitakeumi. Takakeisho had a very good basho, this kid is amazing, all the top guys back and he is kk at K1

    2018 All-Japan Corporate Championship

    Ok, if you say so. I guess I'm talking more about how the word "corporation" is used in English in my line of work. I'm perhaps too focused on the tax difference of businesses taxed as corporations vs. those taxed as unincorporated forms, and I completely forgot about the fact that nonprofits (like universities and municipalities) can also be corporations, mainly since their legal form is generally entirely irrelevant to how they file their informational return with the IRS. I'm probably way out of my element here and am trying to impose a way of thinking from American tax law that has no relevance to Japan. If "corporate" is a standard translation of what was called "businesspeople" in the official English name of the tournament, then I clearly have no ground to stand on. I agree that it certainly sounds better than "businesspeople".
