    I would hope that they sit on a... bench.

    It’s bench stats update time, once again. I’ve updated all my stats pages with the results of the Haru basho. As is usual, you can find the stats at My site by selecting the “Misc. Bench Stats” in the menu. I can’t recall adding any new stats, that haven’t already been announced. I will have a shiny new update in the next few days to the Ranks Stats page to help Jejima figure out who is at their high ranks, though. Stay tuned.

    Feginowaka passed away

    So very sad. I always considered him my unofficial rival in GTB, as he has one more basho in that game than me. I had no idea that he was such an accomplished gentleman away from sumo games. I’ll miss him on the virtual dohyo.

    Happy Birthday, Jejima and Takanorappa!

    I am definitely trying this!

    It’s bench stats update time! I’ve updated all my stats pages (60 of them) with the results of the Hatsu basho. As is usual, you can find the stats at my site by selecting the “Misc. Bench Stats” in the menu. The only stat that I left untouched (I think) was the BSer Rank Stats, as that is really needs the new banzuke to show any change. note: as you can guess the ranks listed are the Hatsu ranks. Once the Bench banzuke is published, I will update. Also, I’m tinkering with the BSer Technique stat to do a little swap/hide of the basho detail & to add average daily tech pts (i.e., what you would expect to score each day). If anyone has a better way to display the data on that page, please let me know

    A few Bench things... 1. The Kyushu 2018 Final MCP results have been reposted. I'm not sure what happened to the original, but I didn't find it on either Bench group site, so shot #2 is on it's way. 2. I've updated my stats site to include the recent Kyushu basho's results, and have updated the Ichimon Banzuke with the new Hatsu 2019 data. Bench salaries have been updated, as well. You can all of the data here to it here: www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.com (then click on the Misc. Bench Stats or Bench Salaries menu items). 3. I'm tossing around a few new stats. One would be a list of all prizes (searchable, of course). With that, you would be able to see the detail all of the prizes for a basho, all prizes for a BSer or just search on a single prize. I've also cracked the secret code to some score data. In particular, I'm working on a page that shows your longest perfect score streak and longest perfect score drought (in bouts). The PS stats have some pretty big data results. (Think 115+ bashos, 604 players & 15 bouts per player - lots of processing time!). Anyway, those pages are in the works, so stay tuned. BTW - If anyone has any stats that they would like to see, please PM me (or put it right out in the open).

    Interesting. I did post to both groups. I’ll go refetch the results....
