    Rare occurence in Jonidan

    Correct. Two such matchups a little while ago, from the same basho no less (Kyushu 2017): Kiriarashi - Amamidake initial, restart Kozakura - Osuzuki initial, restart

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Aki 2020

    A more normal starting time again, with proper service hopefully to be restored for the coming two weeks as well. The ballot for Aki: 1. Kotoshoho 10 2. Terunofuji 8 3. Suzuki 8* 4. Amakaze 8 5. Tokisakae 7* 6. Kitanowaka 7* 7. Yoshii 7* 8. Asanoyama 5 [score?] 9. Murata 5 10. Kaishin 5 11. Shodai 4 [score?] 12. Terutsuyoshi 4 13. Tobizaru 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 13 guys up there and the further 9 rikishi 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 22. 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 12 tie-breakers if needed: Correctly predicted rikishi, one-by-one in ballot order, i.e. starting at Kotoshoho. 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. Kotoshoho KKMK 2. Terunofuji KKMK 3. Suzuki KKMK 4. Amakaze KKMK 5. Tokisakae KKMK 6. Kitanowaka KKMK 7. Yoshii KKMK 8. Asanoyama W-L 9. Murata KKMK 10. Kaishin KKMK 11. Shodai W-L 12.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Aki 2020

    The interesting factor is arguably that they've had no further matches before the role reversal was complete. Most overlapping "veteran ozeki on the way down" and "future ozeki on the way up" careers either have a bunch of matchups in between while neither is ozeki, or they're trivial cases such as Takanonami and Miyabiyama meeting in both Natsu and Nagoya 2000 as ozeki and sekiwake, but flipping ranks in between.

  7. Note for all three banzuke: I decided to do the same thing I did back in 2011 when sumo gaming returned from the long break after the cancelled Haru tournament that year, and have awarded kosho to all absent July players, even if they hadn't competed in March either. In 2011 I also extended the same double kosho opportunity to players who missed the first two tournaments after the break (so July + September here); I'm still pondering whether that is appropriate to do as well this time. Preferably I'd like to see all July-absent players back for Aki, naturally.

    Shimpan news and schedules

    I was recently asked about personnel movements in the shimpan department, and to my dismay I realized that I had completely lost track of changes that happened as little as a year ago. And researching that stuff on the forum turned out to be quite arduous, because so far shimpan updates have been posted in all manner of places (the kabu thread, rikishi status, basho talk, completely separate threads...), which makes them rather hard to find later if you don't already know what you're looking for. So, I'm hoping that this thread may become the future one-stop place for shimpan news. In addition, there will be each basho's shimpan shift lineups, so if you're ever watching a live broadcast and wondering who's sitting around the dohyo at that moment, this thread will hopefully allow you to find the answer. All data is sourced from the official torikumi sheets, such as this one from Nagoya 2017 Day 1.

    My bad, I missed the shift in topic from the original issue for the current basho.

    Bench Sumo news

    I don't really see why. Inattentive players have had full-kyujo rikishi in their squads before, no? It's not like the Hakuho and Kakuryu buttons are getting disabled on the entry pages. (Hmm, or are they...?)

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - July 2020

    Scores for banzuke purposes: chishafuwaku 12 (11+top) Holleshoryu 12 (11+top) Athenayama 10 Pandaazuma 10 WAKATAKE 10 Achiyama 9 Hakuryuho 9 Mmikasazuma 9 wolfgangho 9 Profomisakari 8 Jejima 7 Sakura 7 Ryoshishokunin 6 Total: 118 / 13 = 9.08 ---> -2 wins Ugly KK/MK splits either way again, and neither worked terribly well for the banzuke, so I went with the alternative that was narrowly indicated by both average and split (7.08 and 5/8 rather than 8.08 and 9/4). The new banzuke for Aki 2020: Asashosakari (Ye kosho) Y --- chishafuwaku (O1w 10-5 Y) O1 Athenayama (O2w 8-7) --- O2 Mmikasazuma (O1e 7-8) Holleshoryu (M1w 10-5 D) S Tenshinhan (Se kosho) Rocks (Sw kosho) K Pandaazuma (M2e 8-7) Tsuchinoninjin (M1e kosho) M1 WAKATAKE (M7e 8-7) wolfgangho (M3w 7-8) M2 ryafuji (M2w kosho) Jejima (Ke 5-10) M3 Sakura (Kw 5-10) Achiyama (M6w 7-8) M4 Katsunorifuji (M4w kosho) Pitinosato (M5e kosho) M5 Hakuryuho (NR 7-8) Profomisakari (M6e 6-9) M6 Ryoshishokunin (M3e 4-11) Joaoiyama (M4e 0-0-15) M7 robnplunder (M5w 0-0-15) chishafuwaku had a jun-yusho in the preceding tournament, but as mentioned at the time, it was one of the softest jun-yusho results we've ever had in LKS, and so this J+Y combination is unfortunately not enough to result in a new white rope. He's now on a full-fledged tsuna run for the upcoming tournament though, of course. Mmikasazuma finds herself kadoban for the 4th time in her 14th ozeki appearance, while Athenayama had a credible enough debut showing in July and can breathe easy for his second turn. I normally avoid to demote kosho sekiwake who are on an ozeki run, which Rocks is, but I honestly had no better idea how to fill the four lower sanyaku slots this time. The run is of course still intact, and I'll have no issues promoting straight from komusubi if the Aki result warrants it.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - July 2020

    Apologies that I'm only able to roll this up now. Many thanks to @Ryoshishokunin for stepping in with the final results, and belated congrats to chishafuwaku from here for winning the July 2020 LKS title on a 4-bracket playoff with runner-up Holleshoryu! It's chishafuwaku's second yusho (following Kyushu 2016), and his first victory in a bracket playoff in five attempts, snapping the longest no-win streak in playoffs that we had among active players. (New "leaders": Pandaazuma and Profomisakari, both 0-for-3.) The final results table for posterity: Day 15: 16/16 Decisions, TB 10 Pos Player Pts TB 1 chishafuwaku 11 13 2 Holleshoryu 11 14 3 Athenayama 10 15 3 Pandaazuma 10 13 3 WAKATAKE 10 14 6 Achiyama 9 13 6 Hakuryuho 9 14 6 Mmikasazuma 9 13 6 wolfgangho 9 14 10 Profomisakari 8 13 11 Jejima 7 16 11 Sakura 7 12 13 Ryoshishokunin 6 14 The tie-breaker guesses all missed by a mile, as our interim results master already reported, so no bonus wins for anyone but the two who led on points.

    Sorry, I was on vacation during the basho and that voluntary sumo break ended up a bit more extended than I had anticipated. GTB completely slipped my mind until about six hours after the deadline.

    Retirees after Haru 2020

    7 retirements have been announced, no former sekitori among them: Wakaichiro (Musashigawa) - link, link Kasugamine (Nakagawa) Teruju (Isegahama) Kotonoshima (Sadogatake) Bariki (Shikoroyama) Tetsubisho (Shikoroyama) Fukunofuji (Isegahama) banzuke-gai I think we're all breathing a sigh of relief that Bariki isn't going to struggle on. Fukunofuji is a decently talented 21-year-old who progressed to mid-sandanme smoothly three years ago before hitting the wall there, and has been MIA for close to a year now.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Haru 2020

    Lights, camera, action! And pretty much just that this month... Here's your sanyaku- and hopefully also corona-free LKS ballot for Haru basho: 1. Kotoshoho 8 2. Kotonowaka 7 3. Roga 7* 4. Terunofuji 6 5. Amakaze 6 6. Suzuki 6 7. Daikisho 6 8. Kotosusumu 6 9. Yutakayama 5 10. Akua 5 11. Tokisakae 5* 12. Kitanowaka 5* 13. Shoji 5 14. Toma 5* 15. Yoshii 5* 16. Ito 5* 17. Enho 4 18. Hidenoumi 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 18 guys up there and the further 7 rikishi (3 'veterans' and 4 newcomers) 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 25. 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 17 tie-breakers if needed: Correctly predicted rikishi, one-by-one in ballot order, i.e. starting at Kotoshoho. 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. Kotoshoho KKMK 2. Kotonowaka KKMK 3. Roga KKMK 4. Terunofuji KKMK 5. Amakaze KKMK 6. Suzuki KKMK 7. Daikisho KKMK 8. Kotosusumu KKMK 9. Yutakayama KKMK 10. Akua KKMK 11. Tokisakae KKMK 12. Kitanowaka KKMK 13. Shoji KKMK 14. Toma KKMK 15. Yoshii KKMK 16. Ito KKMK 17. Enho KKMK 18. Hidenoumi KKMK TB xx --- I was going to strike-through all the parts of the rules that don't apply this time due to the lack of sanyaku-rankers, but sanity prevailed before I could subject you to that visual disaster.
