    New recruits for Natsu 2019

    I've been unable to get an uninterrupted recording out of Abema so far, so just the results for now. I'll try again later. Day 6 Results: Mz3 Chiyotora# (2-2) Mz7 Mishima (3-1) Mz4 Chiyokozan (2-2) Mz8 Iwata (1-3) Mz5 Chiyotensho (2-2) Mz9 Yamane (1-3) Mz11 Araoyama (2-2) Mz12 Shiryu (1-3) Mz3 Chiyotora# (3-2) Mz2 Terunohana (0-4) Mz4 Chiyokozan (2-3) Mz11 Araoyama (3-2) Chiyotora and Terunohana with arguably the best match of the whole maezumo week, perhaps not what one would have expected of a bout involving the sole winless participant. I was a bit puzzled about them doing the Chiyokozan-Araoyama extra matchup, but it turns out they're not bothering to appear on Day 7 this time, so we're already done here. Final standings: 3-win target achieved: #01 Mz6 Maruyama Naruto 3-0 #02 Mz10 Sakurai Naruto 3-0 #03 Mz13 Motobayashi Naruto 3-0 #04 Mz7 Mishima Naruto 3-1 #05 Mz3 Chiyotora# Kokonoe 3-2 #06 Mz11 Araoyama Onomatsu 3-2 Remaining order: #07 Mz4 Chiyokozan Kokonoe 2-3 #08 Mz5 Chiyotensho Kokonoe 2-2 #09 Mz12 Shiryu Minato 1-3 #10 Mz8 Iwata Naruto 1-3 #11 Mz9 Yamane Naruto 1-3 #12 Mz2 Terunohana Isegahama 0-4 #13 Mz1 Kotoyamato Sadogatake 0-2-3 I'm not sure I have the order correct here - Shiryu did get his sole win earlier (Day 3) than the Naruto duo (both Day 5), but they seem to ignore this sometimes and just sort the rikishi by their signup numbers. Similarly, I have Kotoyamato below Terunohana despite their numbering as they typically "demote" partly absent rikishi to the bottom of their record group - but they didn't do it two months ago in Osaka for some reason, so that rule might no longer be followed. We'll see on Sunday, at least if Sanspo's sumo department feels like posting the press release this time (as there's no other source for the exact order of returning rikishi, other than the next banzuke of course).

    Day 5 Results: Mz2 Terunohana (0-3) Mz8 Iwata (1-2) Mz12 Shiryu (1-2) Mz9 Yamane (1-2) Mz4 Chiyokozan (1-2) Mz7 Mishima (2-1) Mz3 Chiyotora# (2-1) Mz6 Maruyama (3-0) Mz11 Araoyama (1-2) Mz10 Sakurai (3-0) Mz5 Chiyotensho (1-2) Mz13 Motobayashi (3-0) Sweep for Naruto-beya - lots to smile about for Osh in the hanamichi, today in civilian clothes rather than the on-duty Kyokai jacket he sported on Day 3. I do believe they endeavoured to avoid repeat torikumi by switching things up in the last two bouts, not always a given. "Should" have been Chiyotensho-Sakurai and Araoyama-Motobayashi by normal match-making order, but both happened already in the first round. Standings: 3-win target achieved: #01 Mz6 Maruyama Naruto 3-0 #02 Mz10 Sakurai Naruto 3-0 #03 Mz13 Motobayashi Naruto 3-0 Still active: Mz3 Chiyotora# Kokonoe 2-1 E | Mz4 Chiyokozan Kokonoe 1-2 E | Mz1 Kotoyamato Sadogatake 0-2-2 E Mz7 Mishima Naruto 2-1 W | Mz5 Chiyotensho Kokonoe 1-2 E | Mz2 Terunohana Isegahama 0-3 E Mz8 Iwata Naruto 1-2 W Mz9 Yamane Naruto 1-2 W Mz11 Araoyama Onomatsu 1-2 E Mz12 Shiryu Minato 1-2 E And just like that the scheduling has become quite a bit more flexible with half the Naruto contingent moving on. With around a dozen shindeshi the maezumo typically lasts through Day 7, so we're probably getting two more days here as well.

    Day 4 Kotoyamato did not appear today, and is presumably done competing in this maezumo session. Results: Mz2 Terunohana (0-2) Mz6 Maruyama (2-0) Mz3 Chiyotora# (2-0) Mz7 Mishima (1-1) Mz4 Chiyokozan (1-1) Mz10 Sakurai (2-0) Mz12 Shiryu (1-1) Mz13 Motobayashi (2-0) Mz5 Chiyotensho (1-1) Mz8 Iwata (0-2) Mz11 Araoyama (1-1) Mz9 Yamane (0-2) Chiyotora is my feeble guess for the one shikona not already identified by Yubinhaad (many thanks as always). Standings: Mz3 Chiyotora# Kokonoe 2-0 E | Mz4 Chiyokozan Kokonoe 1-1 E | Mz1 Kotoyamato Sadogatake 0-2-1 E Mz6 Maruyama Naruto 2-0 W | Mz5 Chiyotensho Kokonoe 1-1 E | Mz2 Terunohana Isegahama 0-2 E Mz10 Sakurai Naruto 2-0 W | Mz7 Mishima Naruto 1-1 W | Mz8 Iwata Naruto 0-2 W Mz13 Motobayashi Naruto 2-0 W | Mz11 Araoyama Onomatsu 1-1 E | Mz9 Yamane Naruto 0-2 W Mz12 Shiryu Minato 1-1 E With Kotoyamato's departure the schedule kind of wrote itself today, and will again tomorrow, what with the Naruto sixpack on the West side and the same number of "all other stables" rikishi opposing them on the East. It does mean we're likely to see a sizable number of matchups between rikishi with differing W-L records this basho, which is usually not the done thing.

    Yeah, sorry about that. Only just realized my oversight while making my Day 2 picks. They're there now.

    Rikishi Status Natsu 2019

    Foreign rikishi who aren't Japan-educated Mongolians don't look like they'll be playing much of a role in sumo anymore in the near future...

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Natsu 2019

    From last basho's 18-strong megaballot we're immediately back down to a more manageable length for Natsu basho: 1. Tomokaze 11* 2. Hoshoryu 7 3. Takakeisho 6 [score?] 4. Enho 6 5. Goeido 5 [score?] 6. Takayasu 5 [score?] 7. Chiyosakae 5 8. Hokutoshu 5 9. Tanakayama 5* 10. Meisei 4 11. Sokokurai 4 TB: [pick?] (* marks rikishi with no makekoshi since debut) The scoring and thus your game assignment: For sanyaku: Please predict an exact record for each rikishi. The target record will be calculated after the deadline and will be chosen so that it bisects the predictions as evenly as possible. The predictions will then be converted into + and - votes as usual; one point for each correct prediction. For lower-ranked rikishi: Please predict for each rikishi if he will finish KK or MK; one point for each correct prediction. (For clarification: If you're expecting an outright makekoshi for one of the sanyaku high-rankers, just predict MK, exact records are only needed on the kachikoshi side of things.) First tie-breaker: From among those 11 guys up there and the further 12 rikishi (all 'veterans') who are currently just shy of a 5-KK streak, please guess how many KK you expect in total. Your tie-breaker guess may be anything from 0 to 23. Only exactly correct guesses qualify at this tie-breaker stage. Note: Sanyaku count as correct for the tie-breaker if they achieve KK, they do not need to meet their target records. Next 10 tie-breakers if needed: Correctly predicted rikishi, one-by-one in ballot order, i.e. starting at Tomokaze. Extra tie-breakers, should two or more players have entered identical ballots: Proximity of their tie-breaker guesses to the correct number, followed by proximity of their sanyaku rikishi guesses to the correct records (one-by-one in ballot order). Final tie-breaker: earliest entry. Note: Rikishi who show up on the before-shonichi kyujo list will be excluded from scoring (even if they end up joining the basho later), so it is not necessary to re-submit your entry if you picked such a rikishi as a KK; he will not count for points anyhow. You may, however, notify me if you'd like to reduce your tie-breaker guess by one point to compensate for the "missing" rikishi. Your position on the entry list (for final tie-breaker purposes) will be deemed unchanged in this special situation. Any other changes to a ballot will be considered a new entry, with correspondingly lower priority for the final tie-breaker. Deadline: Shonichi noon JST. ----- Simplified entry template: 1. Tomokaze KKMK 2. Hoshoryu KKMK 3. Takakeisho W-L 4. Enho KKMK 5. Goeido W-L 6. Takayasu W-L 7. Chiyosakae KKMK 8. Hokutoshu KKMK 9. Tanakayama KKMK 10. Meisei KKMK 11. Sokokurai KKMK TB xx

    "It was a way" implies that it was intentional, but it was really just a wild coincidence that's very hard to replicate, because there normally just aren't many upper-ranked rikishi who are still in the race for something that matters on Day 15. (And in any case the schedulers would have to guess correctly who it will be several days ahead of time if they wanted to have it affect the match-making in the run-up to the final day.)

    GTB Natsu May 2019-invitation and final results

    Must admit I was a bit surprised to find out my points were enough for the win, even if 72 is on the high side historically. After seeing where I'd lost points I was pretty sure that somebody else will have avoided enough of those errors to top that score, but I guess not. Though as the results indicate it was in fact a pretty tight race, which is often not the case with a 70+ points yusho. (Compare e.g. last basho where the top four scores were 72, 66, 63 and 60.) On a side note - the GTB archives have already been updated, including the selection stats. 16 players did get M12e Shimanoumi right. More than half the entrants expected a demotion for Chiyoshoma.
