    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Takanosho was robbed. Another very close call without mono-ii was the final makushita bout, Kitaharima vs Nakazono.

    At this moment I agree - this is Daieisho's yusho to lose, considering his opponents so far. If Daieisho goes 7-0 as M1: only done twice before in the modern era, one of which was none other than the bewildered head shimpan. If Daieisho goes 8-0 as M1: unprecedented.

    Had to be Nishikido Oyakata, right (moto-Mitoizumi)? He wasn't on camera.

    No, jonidan was around when I was active, I just didn't start from there.

    Gaijingai Intai In Several Games

    As a player who played for a few years way back, quit, and is playing again, part of the fun is climbing the banzuke. Last time around I started in sandanme, spent over a year in makushita and then reached Akiseyama-like heights before life took over. This time around I am almost sad that there is no sandanme division anymore to start from.

    What about Akiseyama! Today he completely annihilated Sadanoumi and stays atop the leaderboard. Tomorrow co-leader Midorifuji, who has lost three in a row to Akiseyama...

    If there was a requirement that you had to defeat a yokozuna to become one, Akebono would never have become yokozuna in 1993 since there were no yokozuna at the time. You cannot select who you fight, and you can only defeat those who participate.

    Sekitori Quad for Hatsu with so many kyujo ?

    On the third hand - I still think that the best strategy is to pick 4 rikishi per day for as many days as possible. If you run out of rikishi after day 12, so be it. You could of course elect to skip days earlier in the basho to save your picks. Day 1 might be a good candidate for that, but other than that my feeling is that the last days are usually the hardest anyway.

    Sekitori Quad for Hatsu with so many kyujo ?

    On the other hand, it's a fair game for everyone. You can either skip certain days, or try to get a win with 3 rikishi on some days.

    Perhaps it's just me. I managed to get the page by other means. Quite disastrous but it seems I was not alone.

    I cannot access http://www.dichne.com/. Checked with https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/dichne.com?proto=http&www=1 and it also says the site is down. Edit: and now the check site says that the site is up, but I still cannot reach it. Edit 2: it seems to be flapping.

    Makunouchi yushos in 2020

    Judging from this poll, Asanoyama seems to be underachiever of the year. His result of 10-11-12-10-kyujo is actually pretty good, but almost everyone thought he would win at least one yusho.

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    To be fair, Kaio and Wakanohana each won one yusho as komusubi as part of their ozeki runs, and 4 yusho as ozeki. And it took Kaio 25 basho as ozeki to get 4 yusho while Wakanohana took 29, so Kaio didn't actually need twice the number of tournaments to get to five yusho - it's just that their paths diverged at that point. Their careers could so easily have been reversed, and were ultimately decided by a couple of 12-3 results. If Wakanohana's 12-3 in Natsu 1998 had been good for the usual jun-yusho or third place, he might have spent 7 more years as ozeki going 8-7. And if Kaio hadn't tumbled to his third loss on day 12 in Kyushu 2004 against Miyabiyama, he might have been promoted at age 32 and would in all likelihood have been a short-lived yokozuna.
