    Bench World Cup 2022

    Just realised that I am meant to announce the rules for deciding the group rankings. This is based on the real rules for this tournament, which are as follows (nicked from Wikipedia). Tie-breaking criteria for group play The ranking of teams in the group stage is determined as follows:[190] Points obtained in all group matches: Win: 3 points; Draw: 1 point; Loss: 0 points; Goal difference in all group matches; Number of goals scored in all group matches; Points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question; Goal difference in the matches played between the teams in question; Number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question; Fair play points in all group matches (only one deduction can be applied to a player in a single match): Yellow card: −1 point; Indirect red card (second yellow card): −3 points; Direct red card: −4 points; Yellow card and direct red card: −5 points; Drawing of lots.

  3. In Nov/Dec 2014, two-thirds of the people doing this poll thought that Ichinojo would be an Ozeki by January 2016.... In July 2022, he won his first ever yusho. But stories have emerged about him at the end of 2022, which do not bode well for him. Please include your predictions in the comments below, and state what you think the actual rank of Ichinojo will be on the January 2024 banzuke (important for tie-breakers). Previous polls.... 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015

    Ichinojo - will he find his mojo in 2022?

    Ichinojo ended the year on the low, with a 4-11 at M2W. The past 15 98 cases (since 1972) of such a record at such a rank ended up with rikishi being ranked in Mid-Makunouchi (M6-M10), so he'll probably end there for January 2023. This was predicted by just_some_guy, Morty and I am the Yokozuna. He managed three KKs (including his first ever Makunouchi Yusho). Twelve people (over half) got this correct - including the three mentioned above, who got Q1 correct. His best Sekitori result was the 12-3 yusho in July. Nobody got this correct. Yarimotsu was over by one, and six were under by one (Kashunowaka, hakutorizakura, Churaumi, Rubensan, Benihana and WAKATAKE). just_some_guy went with 10-5 (the closest out of the ones getting Q1 and Q2 correct), and his comment about Ichinojo's actual rank for January 2024 looks like it will be pretty close or even spot on. So, yusho goes to @just_some_guy , I will award the jun-yusho to @Morty because he took the time to make a comment.

    Kiribayama's 2023 - on the ascent?

    Kiribayama was the new bright thing at the start of 2020 getting all the way up to M1E in November - when he went 3-12. In 2021, he made it all the way up to Komusubi for November - when he went 6-9. In 2022, he had a couple of bashos at Komusubi, and will be ranked at either komusubi or sekiwake in January 2023. Will he go even further in 2023? Please expand your vote with a comment below. Comments are often used as tie-breakers at the end of the year to determine the yusho winner for an annual poll. Previous poll: 2022 2021

    Kiribayama on the block in 2022

    I think Kiribayama will be ranked at Komusubi in January - but it might be Sekiwake? (anybody more expert than me, care to comment?) The komusubi prediction was made by Morty, Pitinosato and Kaminariyuki. The lowest rank that he lost to in 2022 was M11E Onosho on day 14 of this past basho (November). Kotononami and Oortael both got this correct. Kiribayama had 51 wins this year. hakutorizakura got this spot on. Hmm, choosing a yusho winner is going to be tricky.... Reading comments and checking all answers, the yusho will go to @hakutorizakura and jun-yusho can go to @Pitinosato . (If Kiribayama ends up being Sekiwake, hakutorizakura will definitely remain the yusho winner!)
  7. Tamawashi is the oldest sekitori (a rikishi ranked in either Makunouchi or Juryo). He has just turned 38 this month (November). In 2022, he had three KKs and three MKs. Rather incredibly, he actually won the yusho (his second in Makunouchi) in September, with a fine 13-2 record. He will probably be ranked in the joi-jin (upper ranks, just outside of the sanyaku) for the January 2023 banzuke. Will 2023 be another yusho winning year for the veteran? Or is this the year that he will hang up his mawashi? Please include your predictions (be as precise as you can!) in the comments below. Please also include in your comment your guess for either a) Tamawashi's rank on the January 2024 banzuke or b) Tamawashi's final banzuke rank before he goes intai in 2023 (These might well be used as a tie-breaker!)
  8. Takakeisho began his Makunouchi career in January 2017 at the age of 20. He began his sanyaku career in January 2018. He won his first ever yusho in November 2018. He became an Ozeki (twice!) in 2019. In 2020, he won his second Makunouchi yusho, and his fourth Makunouchi jun-yusho. In 2021, he won his fifth and sixth jun-yushos. In 2022, he won two more jun-yushos. It is now two years since his last yusho - has he already peaked? He was the youngest rikishi in Makunouchi for every time that this poll was created for the first four years - but no longer from 2021 onwards. As of January 2023, I think he will be sixth youngest in Makunouchi..... How will this ?youngish? man (aged 26) do in 2023? Please expand on your votes in the comments below. Please say how many yushos and how many jun-yushos you think that he will win. Comments will be used as a tie-breaker for deciding yushos at the end of the year, if required. Previous Takakeisho polls: 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017

    Takakeisho in 2022 - he was young once

    Takakeisho will keep his rank of Ozeki for the start of 2023. This was predicted by..... Hakuruho, Kashunowaka, haktoizakura, Kotononami, Kintamayama, Rubensan, Athenayama, Shatsume, Churaumi, Unagiyutaka, Pitinosato, Kishinoyama, Oortael, WAKATAKE, Benihana and I am the Yokozuna. So, by most. His longest win streak was six wins, which he achieved twice... Days 8-13 in July, and again this past basho (November) from days 10-15. Takanorappa came closest with 7. Next closest was Pitinosato and Benihana with 8. Takakeisho won two jun-yushos in 2022 (July and November), but no yushos. Hakuryuho, Kotononami, Rubensan, Unagiyutaka, Benihana and Yarimotsu all got this correct. Benihana, therefore, can take the yusho here! @Benihana

    The Day 15 entry for Bench Sumo can be achieved by clicking on this..... (Basically changing the D=14 to D=15). Sadly, that trick can't be used for the other games, which we will just have to wait for....
