    GTB Aki Basho 2019 - 95 entries , 3 hours to go..

    By your logic from above, Asanoyama should be ahead of Tamawashi since he won the trophy much more recently. And where's Tomokaze?

    Now I really like to see your draft of the joi.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Don't mistake "charismatic" for "amiable". When I started watching sumo, Akebono was the Yokozuna with an impenetrable aura of invincibility. Can't get much more charismatic than that. And yes, I dearly miss Akebono in his prime.

    How will this era end?

    There won't be another "no yokozuna era", simply because the entry pages for several sumogames won't allow for that.

    Would you throw the Zabuton???

    For me, it was this one: This happened to be my very first day at the Kokugikan, and I would have most certainly joined the throwing action if I wasn't sitting upstairs.

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Seconded! When Abi gets the rope, I can finally quit watching sumo for good.

    Nagoya Superbanzuke Masters Series

    The numbers for the World Championship are intriguing: 2/3 of the year is done. Pandaazuma has 240 points, his closest pursuer Haidouzo has 160.

    That also concurs with Bench Sumo as he was the only rikishi not being picked by anybody.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    For me, Kaio was the embodiment of Day 1 losses as Ozeki, but even from 2007 onwards he had a 16-11 record on day 1. Selective perception takes its toll.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    Wait . . . did you just throw Enho in the same pot as Terunofuji?

    UDH Nagoya Basho 2019

    The winning lineup doesn't look particularly good, which is in line with one of the worst best lineups we ever had in Bench Sumo. Must have been a bad time for pre-basho games.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    I doubt he'll make it back to Sekitori, being 34 years old and on the decline for more than three years.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2019

    I'm just tinkering with my first GTB draft, and admittedly a third Sekiwake slot would make the whole joi-situation a bit less awful. But that has never been a deciding factor, has it?

    Turn The Tide - Banzuke Aki 2019

    Makuuchi was straightforward without adjustments, but in Juryo and below I tried everything between adding zero and two wins for banzuke making purposes, but in the end I settled for one (even if it's essentially flooding the basement from J8 downwards that way). Kitakachiyama (Ye Kyujo) Y Flohru (S2w 10-5 -> 10-5) S1 Haidouzo (S1e 8-7 -> 8-7) Pandaazuma (S1w 8-7 -> 8-7) S2 Andoreasu (K1e 11-4 -> 11-4) Taka (K1w 9-6 -> 9-6) K1 Konosato (K2e 8-7 -> 8-7) Chishafuwaku (K2w 8-7 -> 8-7) K2 Ganzohnesushi (M2e 9-6 -> 9-6) Asashosakari (M11e 12-3 -> 12-3) M1 Fujiyama (M3e 8-7 -> 8-7) Kotononami (M3w 8-7 -> 8-7) M2 Gurowake (M1e 7-8 -> 7-8) Susanoo (M1w 7-8 -> 7-8) M3 Chankoyama (M4w 8-7 -> 8-7) Tenshinhan (M6e 9-6 -> 9-6) M4 Gansekiiwa (M5e 8-7 -> 8-7) Reijinguoshan (M8w 9-6 -> 9-6) M5 Bill (M6w 8-7 -> 8-7) GONZABUROW (M9e 9-6 -> 9-6) M6 Andonishiki (M15e 11-4 -> 11-4) Kaiowaka (M2w 5-10 -> 5-10) M7 Korinokoishi (M12e 9-6 -> 9-6) Achiyama (M7e 7-8 -> 7-8) M8 Gaijingai (M13e 9-6 -> 9-6) ScreechingOwl (M8e 7-8 -> 7-8) M9 Sebunshu (M5w 5-10 -> 5-10) Sakura (M10e Kosho) M10 Jakusotsu (M7w 6-8-1 -> 6-9) Yassier (M4e 4-11 -> 4-11) M11 Ruziklao (M10w 7-8 -> 7-8) Unkonoyama (M15w 9-6 -> 9-6) M12 Kintamayama (M9w 6-9 -> 6-9) Frinkanohana (M17w 9-6 -> 9-6) M13 Wamahada (J2e 10-5 -> 11-4) Kobashi (M11w 6-9 -> 6-9) M14 Jejima (M14w Kosho) Mariohana (J3e 10-5 -> 11-4) M15 Pitinosato (J1w 9-6 -> 10-5) Metzinowaka (M17e 8-7 -> 8-7) M16 Andrasoyamawaka (M12w 6-8-1 -> 6-9) Nantonoyama (J4e 9-6 -> 10-5) M17 Asapedroryu (J5w 8-7 -> 9-6) J1 Chocshoporyu (J1e 6-7-2 -> 7-8) Fujisan (M16e 5-10 -> 5-10) J2 Kuroimori (M16w 5-9-1 -> 5-10) Kasamatsuri (M14e 4-9-2 -> 4-11) J3 Kishikaisei (J4w 7-8 -> 8-7) Kyoju (J7e 8-7 -> 9-6) J4 Gernobono (M13w 3-12 -> 3-12) Golynohana (J11e 9-6 -> 10-5) J5 Profomisakari (J9w 8-7 -> 9-6) Athenayama (J2w 5-10 -> 6-9) J6 Manatsumai (J5e 6-9 -> 7-8) Takanorappa (J3w 5-10 -> 6-9) J7 Mmikasazuma (J6e 6-9 -> 7-8) Anjoboshi (J8e 6-9 -> 7-8) J8 Taxinohana (J8w 6-9 -> 7-8) Shimodahito (J6w 4-11 -> 5-10) J9 Chelseayama (J14e 7-8 -> 8-7) Oortael (ms4e 8-7 -> 9-6) J10 RaeucherLax (J11w 6-8-1 -> 7-8) Neko (J9e 4-4-7 -> 5-10) J11 Futtokazan (J10e 4-10-1 -> 5-10) Kamogawa (J13e 5-10 -> 6-9) J12 Wolfgangho (J14w 5-8-2 -> 6-9) Gawasukotto (J12w 3-11-1 -> 4-11) J13 Ariakenoumi (ms3e 5-9-1 -> 6-9) Tsuchinoninjin (ms3w 5-9-1 -> 6-9) J14 Mischashimaru (J12e 2-13 -> 3-12) Holleshoryu (ms1e Kosho) ms1 Hana-ichi (ms1w Kosho) Taikanute (J13w 2-13 -> 3-12) ms2 Suwihuto (J7w Kyujo) Tatsuomi (ms2e 3-8-4 -> 4-11) ms3 Kutoyama (ms5e 4-8-3 -> 5-10) Rikishimiezi (J10w Kyujo) ms4 Hagamachikuni (ms6e 3-12 -> 4-11) Saruyama (ms4w 2-10-3 -> 3-12) ms5 Chenko (ms2w Kyujo) WAKATAKE (ms5w 0-5-10 -> 1-14) ms6 Banzuke-gai: Jaakunakunshu (ms6w)

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    When Aminishiki started to appear on Eurosport, he was the most skinny rikishi I've ever seen in Makuuchi (quite similar to Ama). His change of body happened so slowly that it was barely noticed.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2019

    Yeah, looks like I've been making a fool of myself again (happens a lot recently, doesn't it?) Somehow I thought the highest rank or number of sanyaku basho affects the honshokin-system, but it looks like I was mistaken. Of course there's still the extra Sekiwake salary to be paid for the basho in question, but without long-term effects. I really should stop trying to walk in Asashosakari's enormous shoes...
  23. Jakusotsu

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2019

    ...and as I said before: extra sanyaku slots cost a considerable amount of money in the long run, especially when young guys like Abi are involved. (Who would have probably turned out to be a one-time-komusubi if it wasn't for that henka, but that's another story...)

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Not only taking the number of wins into account but also the kind of losses, both Asanoyama and Hokutofuji lost twice against lower-ranked opponents, so they had similar success in that context.
