    I prefer your first idea.

    Chocshoporyu has also never won the Bench Makunouchi Yusho. In fact he has never won any yusho in any division in Bench Sumo...

    I found this in my old emails from 11 years ago, when we last updated the Yokozuna rules (I think...) Bench Yokozuna promotion A Bench Yokozuna hopeful must have won at least one Bench Makunouchi Yusho at some stage in the past. The general guidelines are that the normal minimum requirement for promotion should be two consecutive Jun-Yushos, whilst at the rank of Ozeki (provided that they have previously won a Makunouchi Yusho.) The Rijicho (currently Jejima),will ask the chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council to convene a meeting. In general, this will be after an Ozeki has just won a Yusho, or good Jun-Yusho. The Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council currently consists of Marushiki (as the esteemed chair), Hakaso, Leonishiki, Sherlockiama and Sakana.

    On day 14 of the basho, I asked Marushiki (the chair of the BSYDC) to convene the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council to discuss both ScreechingOwl and Chocshoporyu. I am awaiting her response. However, there is a Bench Sumo rule (if only they were easily assessible) for Yokozunas that they must have won at least one Makunouchi Yusho in their career to be promoted. ScreechingOwl has never won the Makunouchi yusho. Chocshoporyu was kadoban this basho. Therefore fairly confident in ranking both at Ozeki while awaiting the message back from the BSYDC.
  5. Bench Sumo news

    I used to (15 years ago?) advertise Bench Sumo as 'being as close to the real thing without having to don a mawashi.' Bench Sumo tries to mimic Ozumo as much as is possible. When Bench Sumo was first set up, there used to be only 40 rikishi in Makunouchi (and 26 in Juryo), following the lead of Ozumo. Ozumo also at that time had the 'Kosho' rule. When Ozumo did away with the Kosho rule - and expanded Makunouchi and Juryo as 'compensation', we followed suit with expanding the two divisions, but did not remove our kosho rule, as real people with real jobs and families playing the game might have to skip a basho due to holidays, illness or just life in general, and we do not want to punish such people. I agree that Bench Sumo is not the fairest system (just need to look at the MCP posts to confirm that!) - but neither is Ozumo which it is trying to mirror as closely as possible.

    Hi all! Here is the new Bench Banzuke for the September 2018 basho. It was put together by Jejima, Kaiomitsuki and Flohru, with Kintamayama, Asashosakari and Ekigozan looking over it. We have reduced our sanyaku to the ideal eight that we aim for - giving Flohru and Jakusotsu slightly fortunate promotions to Komusubi in the process. However, there is LOADS of bad banzuke luck for players with an MK, throughout the banzuke. So, if you were one of the players with an MK in July, do not be optimistic about your new rank - you will almost certainly be ranked (?much?) lower than you were expecting. Well, here it is....

It is strongly hoped (nay, strongly insisted) that he regains his form of old, and comes back with good GKA sumo in September. Sekiwake chishafuwaku will be considered for promotion to Ozeki with a yusho in September. Just in case I forget again... The current way for calculating the KK line is to take the average score of players that have entered picks for at least ten days of the basho - but excludes the score of 'The Kyokai' and any mae-zumo players, and then round it to the nearest whole number. The OQ line is calculated by doing the above, and then multiplying by 1.3333, and again rounded to the nearest whole number.
  8. New banzuke for September 2018 [I had to check regarding placement of Sakura and Gurowake. As recently as May 1997, Gurowake would have been ranked at Y1E (which is what I first thought it should be), but the most recent example (September 2009) shows that Ozumo now put the yusho winner above the jun-yusho winner when the yusho winner was the lower ranked Yokozuna.] Sakura (YO-W 10-5) Y1 Gurowake (Y2E 10-5) Kuroimori (Y1W 6-9) Y2 YO Jakusotsu (Y1E 4-11) Gernobono (O1E 5-10) O1 chishafuwaku (S1E 6-9) S1 Ryoshishokunin (K1E 5-8-2) Andonishiki (M1E 6-8-1) K1 Tenshinhan (M1W 6-9) orandashoho (K1W 4-10-1) M1 Jejima (M3W 5-10) Atenzan (M2E Kosho) M2 shimodahito (S1W 1-13-1)Profomisakari (M2W 3-12) M3 WAKATAKE (M3E 0-15) The Kyokai (M4E 0-15) M4 Umizoi (mz 4-10-1) Comments: Yokozunas Sakura and Gurowake are to be commended on upholding the rank of Yokozuna.

  9. Just discovered - while checking out the rules - that we have now commenced the 11th year of this game. I really started it as a little tongue-in-cheek - I never expected it to last this long. This is mainly due to Klaus (Jakusotsu) looking after the game during each basho. Many thanks to Jakusotsu for looking after this game for the past fortnight. Many, many omedetous to Sakura for her 'Three-peat' with yushos. I don't think that has ever happened before with this game.

    How about this game that I just thought about (while trying to get my baby to go to sleep)... "Get Your Money's Worth." Basically every day players select one bout that they think will last a long time. They are then awarded the number of seconds (minutes if they are really lucky) that that bout lasts. At the end of the basho, the player with the longest accumulated time is the winner. There is a web-page somewhere that publishes the amount of time each bout lasts.
