    New kesho mawashi

    No, that's just the middle part of his shikona from top to bottom on the left side. Yes it is. It is actually one and the same. Something, I must confess, I was't aware of. The middle part of his shikona is in fact this 夢 (yume). :) Well, no it isn't "the decorative element". That this kanji is part of his shikona is very well known to me.

    Nagoya 2015 Videos- Days 1-15

    Please keep comments about the bouts to the relevant topic. Would you kindly describe what the relevant topic is..? Maybe I should have added that Satoyama took the whole bucket of salt with him when he tumbled down at the corner of the dohyo. Hope this helps. I think it's pretty obvious that the video topic isn't the right place to write who won or lost in specific bouts. Hopefully you'll agree to put these comments in the "Basho Talk - Nagoya 2015 +++ Spoiler alert! +++" topic where spoilers are welcome.

    Preparations of the Y/O - July 2015

    Smartphones are overrated... You know that he actually is facing Tochinoshin? Maybe he wasn't too sure himself as his statement can be said against any opponent on any day (ok, maybe he should at least be in the yusho race to say this but still).

    GTB -Nagoyim 2015

    Welcome to the wildness, also known as the banzuke selection stats. Actually, all rikishi had at least 8 bulls-eyes, which isn't too bad. Biggest surprises probably were Yoshikaze and of course Takanoiwa who only 18 players saw staying in makuuchi (seven players even rising in rank...).

    2ND LEAGUE NATSU 15 (May Basho)

    Just a suggestion: There could be a tie-breaker for the shukun-sho (most yusho): In case of same yusho number the sum of participants in those games can be used to determine the more "valuable" yusho, giving the shukun-sho to Flohru with 50 players (15+35) over andonishiki (15+12) and chishafuwaku (11+15).

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Natsu 2015

    Maybe this query is helpful? All basho since 1980 with three or more komusubi, rows are rikishi, first series of columns is the basho before, so you can see their scores leading to the komusubi rank right away.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Natsu 2015

    To put it another way, if two rikishi have the same result for a basho, the one who was ranked higher will be ranked higher in the next basho as well. Well, basically yes... but please check what happened at the Sekiwake ranks on the Nagoya 2014 banzuke (sorry, can't hyperlink when using smartphone) So remember: with the NSK it is NSN* *= Never Say Never ;-) Huh? This is in no way related to the statement. It says "A implies B" with A being rikishi having same score (or the higher ranked having a better score) and B is the higher ranked rikishi stays ahead of the lower ranked rikishi. Your case simply doesn't have "A", it does have the lower ranked rikishi with the higher score, so there is absolutely no conclusion here. Using such examples is just making me cringe. * I know of one, and only one exemption of the "rule" in question: If two yokozuna have the same score, but the lower ranked wins the yusho playoff he very well may end up ahead on the next banzuke (but even this is a recent development).

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Natsu 2015

    Look closely at this banzuke and then at this one. ;-) Yep, they definitely were more patient back then like today, that's for sure.

    Retirees after Natsu 2015

    (IIRC) I found a comprehensive list of all Heisei era rikishi with readings and heya history on the web, which was extremely valuable to clear up all name readings and heya histories. Of course, this list may be wrong, but so far it has held up the test of time quite well.

    Terunofuji promoted to Ozeki

    Well, Yoshibayama at four months between each basho, so he still had eight months between maegashira and ozeki. Terunofuji is the first after only four months in sanyaku.

    Retirees after Natsu 2015

    Something seems to be in the water at Sadogatake... no less than seven of the bottom ranked nine rikishi were absent this basho, they are filling up the (after Sadanohama's intai) empty banzuke-gai department (four from Sadogatake-beya along with Itoku from Shikihide-beya).

    None of the daily results are showing the banzuke ranks this basho. The day in question is Day 6 though. True... I corrected the uploaded banzuke and rescored day 6 (the only day with the banzuke rank needed as tie-breaker).

    Hmm, the banzuke is up since May 10th... maybe it's more complicated than just "loading the banzuke", can you tell me the day in question?

    I have entered them now and recalculated day 11 results, hopefully it's correct now. Looks like the standings somehow haven't been updated for Toto...or maybe they have but some of the missing line-ups were never entered. Having said that, I sent my picks to Asasho and posted them on this thread but I am still recorded as absent for that day. Thanks as always for your efforts, Doitsuyama! Yes, the initial rows were still missing, the scoring only updates them... I added them, scored again and it looks ok now. Most notable change probably is Andoreasu getting a close win for the 12-3 yusho. Congrats.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Natsu 2015

    Purely on KK guesses you were two better than andonishiki, yes. But the points for sanyaku guesses aren't given on correct KK, but on the predicted median score from all players. And andonishiki got points for Hakuho and Kisenosato where you was on the wrong side.

    Natsu 2015 Basho Talk (spoiler alert!)

    Good question, I was wondering about this myself just today... I'm (wishfully?) thinking any sanyaku appearance of Tochinoshin settles it for me, but maybe Jakusotsu has some objections which we'll have to discuss when I'm in Nürnberg. ;-)

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Natsu 2015

    I'm not offended by henka as such (I've defended its use plenty of times), just by the IMHO downright insulting use in this particular matchup. That was either the most blatant case of "I shouldn't need to be competing down here" I've ever seen, or an incredible lack of self-confidence on Ura's part. I see it more like Ura's normal tachi-ai... He usually just doesn't want to attack at the start and relies on his (incredible) defensive skills. I think especially against a clearly inferior oppnent going for the yusho he didn't want to make a risk and went for what he does best. You can't say that this didn't work out perfectly well, so I can't blame him. It will indeed be interesting to see him in higher divisions, similar to Ishiura.
