    Mitakeumi in 2019

    Mitakeumi has been in Ozumo for less than four years. In 2018 he won his first Makunouchi yusho! Will he build on this success in 2019? Or will he drop down from the Sanyaku ranks? If yes, how far will he drop? How will he do against the current crop of Yokozunas and Ozekis? Previous polls: 2018 2017 2016
  2. My mistake (now corrected above). This should be for the January 2021 banzuke, not 2022.

    Takakeisho in 2019 - the Young 'un

    Takakeisho's 2019 went like this.... Jan - S1E (11-4 Jun-Yusho) Mar - S1E (10-5) May - O2E (3-4-8) Jul - O2E (0-0-15) Sep - S1W (12-3 Jun-Yusho via play-off) Nov - O2E (9-6) So, all six bashos ranked in the sanyaku, as predicted by 70% of us, namely MumboJumbo, Ginkitsune, Shinrei, Kyokufuji, Morty, wys, Tenshinhan, Shatsume, Jejima, I am the Yokozuna, Benihana, Oshirokita, Pitinosato and Sherlockiama. Takakeisho's longest win-streak (which he achieved on four occasions, including twice in September) was five. Ginkitsune came closest with six. The 'silver fox' was also one of the 80% who correctly predicted that Takakeisho would be ranked at Ozeki for January 2020. So the yusho clearly goes to @Ginkitsune .

    Takakeisho in 2019 - the Young 'un

    Takakeisho began his Makunouchi career in January 2017. He began his sanyaku career in January 2018. He won his first ever yusho in November 2018. He remains the youngest rikishi currently in Makunouchi - for now (Takagenji ranked near the top of Juryo is younger.) How will this youngster (is 22 considered young?) do in 2019? Please expand on your votes in the comments below. Previous Takakeisho polls: 2018 2017

    Makunouchi Yushos in 2019

    In 2019, the yushos were won as follows.... Jan - S1W Tamawashi (13-2) Mar - Y1E Hakuho (15-0!) May - M8W Asanoyama (12-3) Jul - Y1E Kakuryu (14-1) Sep - S1E Mitakeumi (12-3, after play-off) Nov - Y1W Hakuho (14-1) So, all three Tokyo yushos won by rikishi ranked below Ozeki, with the three 'out-of-town' yushos won by Yokozunas. Terao, WAKATAKE, MumboJumbo, Konosato, RabidJohn, Churaumi, Shatsume, Andonishiki, Hakuhonofan and Pitinosato all predicted three yushos by Yokozunas. Nobody predicted three yushos by the below Ozeki ranks. Sue, chishafuwaku, Konosato, Morty, Hakuhonofan, Jejima and I am the Yokozuna came closest with two. So the yusho here goes to a play-off between Konosato and Hakuhonofan. Konosato did not make any comments. Hakuhonofan correctly predicted two yushos for Hakuho and one for Kakuryu - so the yusho goes to.... @Hakuhonofan Jun-yusho for... @Konosato

    Makunouchi Yushos in 2019

    In 2018, half of the yushos were won by rikishi ranked below Ozeki. That is unusual. Will 2019 also be a weird year, or will it be more 'normal', with Yokozunas and Ozekis dominating? Which ranks do you think will win the Makunouchi yushos in 2019? Please write your predictions in the comments below. Please also mention which rikishi (give names!) you think will actually win the yushos (and how many). Similar polls can be found for previous years below. 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
  7. Somehow in my family's rush to leave Hong Kong and set up again in the UK, I forgot all about the 'annual polls'. The January 2020 banzuke looked like this for the top two ranks... Hakuho Y Kakuryu Takakeisho O Goeido I have gone through all of the predictions, and by a whisper I am awarding the yusho to @Kyokufuji . @Shinrei is awarded the jun-yusho after losing in a close-play off.
  8. So, how will the top of the banzuke look in a little over a year from now? Please leave your actual prediction for the top two ranks for the January 2020 banzuke in the comments below like this... Mozart Y1 Beethoven Bach Y2 Tschaikovsky Handel O1 Chopin Brahms O2 Liszt etc - then we can see who is closest at the end of the year, to award a yusho for this poll. Previous polls: 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 - not polled 2011 2010 2009 2008

    Does anybody know where they are?

    @Itachiyama is M14E on the Bench Sumo banzuke.

    Norizo Cup Banzuke 2020.3

    I thought that was strange too, when it happened to me. I can't remember what I wrote at the time, but I think 'surprise' was probably part of it!

    You did. Omedetou! Looks like Yassier and Sakura should switch places in the standings.

    Norizo Cup Banzuke 2020.3

    I think that I dislike these special rules, as they don't make sense. With Bench for the Makushita division, we add more movement for players with KKs than for the top two divisions, but that extra is 'curtailed' once the player hits the Juryo promotion mark, because that is just sensible.

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    So, why did I get the green mawashi? I skipped some of the big games, such as SG, Sekitoto and tipspiel, went 0-15 in SekiQ and Odd. Not one of my best bashos in my opinion.
  14. Jejima

    Hatsu 2020 Superbanzuke Masters

    Am I eligible for the green mawashi? It seems that it is only available to the top ten ranked players. Surely I am no longer in the top ten?

    Bench Sumo news

    Hi all! In lightning quick speed (for Bench, at least), here is the new banzuke for March 2020. It was crafted by Jejima, Flohru and Kaiomitsuki (watched over by Kintamayama, Asashosakari and Ekigozan). This one was difficult to sort out, and there are LOTS of bad luck and good luck this time around. Keep your fingers crossed that you are a 'lucky' one - but be prepared for bad luck too.

    Hi everyone! Here are the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2020 after the January 2020 basho. This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from March 2019 to January 2020. It reads like this.....

Flohru took advantage of bill skipping this basho, and retakes the top spot. Yassier leaps up into the top 5. The biggest climber is Sakura, moving up 18 spots. Over-and-out! Jejima Sanyaku level 1.

    Bench Sumo news

    This is a bit old news now - but I notice that I forgot to post it last November. So, better late than never.... Hi everyone! We have a new winner for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award (ZQoSA) for 2019! It is.... . . . . . . . Bill! Omedetou Bill! Here are the full results for the year. It is a little more complicated than usual, in order to compare to the final results for 2018 - as well as comparing to the results after September 2019. REMEMBER regular brackets ( ) relate to last basho. Curly brackets { } refer to last year {2018}. So, it reads like this. Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after September 2019) - {comparison to 2018 final position} - Rank on the November 2019 banzuke - {Rank on the November 2018 banzuke} - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points gain from after November 2019, basically November 2019 minus November 2018) - {comparison to total ZQoSA points for 2018}. There are lots of interesting stories within the numbers if you take a look. Sadly, I have no time to say more - so you will need to see for yourselves. Over-and-out! Jejima Sanyaku level 1.

    I entered my GTB (with a separate explanatory email to Moti), that I was using the Y2 option as my Yokozuna-Ozeki pick.

    @Doitsuyama - can the current automation handle having an additional maegashira pick, when lacking a sanyaku rank? I think I recall bringing up this topic with Kofuji when I visited him in UAE, and I think he said that it was already included in the automation - but that was the old automation.

    That bit I did foresee all those years ago..... To quote from here... Your squad for the Bench Basho. This will comprise of the following Makunouchi Division rikishi:- One Yokozuna, one Ozeki, one Sekiwake, one Komusubi and 6 Maegashira rikishi. In the case that one or more of the sanyaku ranks (i.e. Yokozuna, Ozeki, Sekiwake or Komusubi) have no active rikishi taking part in a particular basho, you will be allowed to select an extra maegashira ranked rikishi to fill out your squad. Be sure to check after the Day 1 torikumi is announced on the Saturday before the basho to see if any of your rikishi have withdrawn due to injury so that you can replace them in time.

    Hey, you also won Guess Hokutofuji's Aite this basho - or do you just take that for granted these days.
  24. Hooray! Out of a matter of interest - what was the previous record score?

    I was sure that I covered this eventuality in the original Bench Sumo rules written a couple of decades ago, but it seems that I didn't. However, yes, a Yokozuna-Ozeki will be considered a Yokozuna for the purposes of Bench Sumo.
