    Wow, you're right! Quite amazing (for me) that Ichinojo has been around much longer than Mitakeumi.

    Who was the last Maegashira without any knot at all? Ichinojo?

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Natsu 2022

    I'd say it all depends on how many Ozeki will be left after Nagoya. If both kadoban escape demotion, then 12-9-12 might not be enough, but with only Takakeisho still alive, he should be a shoo-in.

    YDC Meeting Natsu 2022

    That will be forgotten very soon, but a hiramaku yusho would have been yet another sore thumb sticking out of the current mess.
  6. Hi there, this is to invite you to participate in Banzuke Surfing in the upcoming basho. The rules are very simple. Banzuke Surfing is run in several waves, with a new wave starting every year. The goal is to move up the banzuke as far and fast as possible. You do so by temporarily "adopting" one or more rikishi at a given banzuke position. If your rikishi moves up the banzuke, so will you, if the rikishi moves down by getting MK, so will you (at least, if all your picked rikishi move down). If your rikishi goes intai, you will get his last position next time. In the basho after the current one you will be taking the banzuke position of the best-placed rikishi you've picked this time. If your name appears on the list below, you have already participated. The column "Allowed Picks" shows you which rikishi of the banzuke you are allowed to pick next basho. If you are participating for the first time, you are allowed to pick any of the rikishi in the bottom 32 of the banzuke (as indicated below). The rikishi that you are allowed to pick are all rikishi below your last (or most successful) pick. So generally, you cannot pick the same rikishi twice. An exception is if your rikishi drops into the last 32 of the banzuke or goes banzuke-gai. In this case, of course, you can pick any of the bottom 32 rikishi (just like a new player). During your entire career of a given wave you can use up to three so-called jokers (indicated by the number of asterisks behind your name). Jokers are additional rikishi you can pick. In addition to the regular rikishi you pick for a basho, you can use as many jokers as you've still left. E.g., at the beginning of a wave you could pick four rikishi instead of one (regular + all jokers). As a consequence, the most successful one of these four will determine your new banzuke position. But on the downside this would mean that you don't have any jokers left for later bashos. So pick jokers wisely, three isn't much for a wave that might run for much more than a year. Deadline is shonichi 8 AM JST. All new players are allowed to pick Jk7e Kyokumizuno and below. Rank Shikona Last Surfer Position Allowed Picks 1. Oortael** Oshoryu Ms27e Ms27w Chiyooga and below 2.

    Guess I can't talk smack about Kotokuzan anymore. Ok, so I guessed right and your gaming shikona really *is* Beeftank. Do you still want to be set up for playing Bench Sumo next basho?

  12. Even after adding three wins for Sekitori and four wins in Makushita, crafting a sensible banzuke wasn't easy.

  17. Hi there, this is to invite you to participate in Banzuke Surfing in the upcoming basho. The rules are very simple. Banzuke Surfing is run in several waves, with a new wave starting every year. The goal is to move up the banzuke as far and fast as possible. You do so by temporarily "adopting" one or more rikishi at a given banzuke position. If your rikishi moves up the banzuke, so will you, if the rikishi moves down by getting MK, so will you (at least, if all your picked rikishi move down). If your rikishi goes intai, you will get his last position next time. In the basho after the current one you will be taking the banzuke position of the best-placed rikishi you've picked this time. If your name appears on the list below, you have already participated. The column "Allowed Picks" shows you which rikishi of the banzuke you are allowed to pick next basho. If you are participating for the first time, you are allowed to pick any of the rikishi in the bottom 32 of the banzuke (as indicated below). The rikishi that you are allowed to pick are all rikishi below your last (or most successful) pick. So generally, you cannot pick the same rikishi twice. An exception is if your rikishi drops into the last 32 of the banzuke or goes banzuke-gai. In this case, of course, you can pick any of the bottom 32 rikishi (just like a new player). During your entire career of a given wave you can use up to three so-called jokers (indicated by the number of asterisks behind your name). Jokers are additional rikishi you can pick. In addition to the regular rikishi you pick for a basho, you can use as many jokers as you've still left. E.g., at the beginning of a wave you could pick four rikishi instead of one (regular + all jokers). As a consequence, the most successful one of these four will determine your new banzuke position. But on the downside this would mean that you don't have any jokers left for later bashos. So pick jokers wisely, three isn't much for a wave that might run for much more than a year. Deadline is shonichi 8 AM JST. All new players are allowed to pick Jk7e Kyokumizuno and below. Winner Last Surfer Position Banzuke 1.
