    Right now, the joijin go down to M6, and might extend even further when Goeido finally goes kyujo.
  3. Miyabiyama sure looks a lot like Takayasu.

    Tochiozan is just that kind of rikishi who will rob most players of their points, no matter which way the pendulum swung. Remember Wakanosato?

  9. 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 Jk12w Kirimaru and below. Rank Shikona Last Surfer Position Allowed Picks 1. Gernobono* Aoiyama M8e M8w Ryuden and below 2.

  19. 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 players are allowed to pick Jk12w Kirimaru and below.

    And yet again nobody offered an actually helping hand other than feeble gestures to get him safely off the dohyo. They seemed to be more concerned to have him out of the way quickly for the Juryo dohyo-iri to take place. Embarrassing.

    Exactly. Don't disregard the excitement factor for the players. Some feel-good moments now and then are needed to keep them interested, and choosing between Endo and Enho is the cherry on top of an otherwise stale bread.
