    Bench Sumo news

    Hi everyone! It is the 20th anniversary of Bench Sumo! Let's mark this special occasion by having lots of daily day-to-day gyojis. Former d2d gyojis, current d2d gyojis and those who have always thought about being a d2d gyoji, please consider offering your services. Trivia question - Who was the first ever day-to-day gyoji? (other than myself) Let me know which day(s) you are available, how many days that you would like/can take, and if you have any preference in regards to division. Jejima (20 years of BS and counting)

    Bench Sumo news

    Hi all! Here are the possible 'milestones' for Bench Sumo players for the Aki (September) basho 2019 - TWENTY YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! A big shout-out to Takanorappa and his Bench Sumo stat page that made this email possible. All the good stuff can be found here --> <http://www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm> There are five parts.... 1. The players at a new career high rank. 2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in September (it's the 20th anniversary - everyone should be there!). 3. Players who have a chance (even if very remote) of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in September. 4. The current #20 leaderboard for the *all-time* total number of wins. 5. The current #20 leaderboard for the highest win percentage for *active* players. Enjoy!

    Would you throw the Zabuton???

    I have thrown a zabuton in the past, when I was in my 20s. It was fun. Not sure that I would do so now - I am in my 40s.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Anybody know what Takanoyama is doing these days? I remember being introduced to him at a Junior World Championship (where he got Bronze in one of the weight divisions, I think), before he joined Ozumo.

    Hi everyone! Here are the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2019 after the July 2019 basho. This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from September 2018 to July 2019. It reads like this..... Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after May 2019) - Rank on the July 2019 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points gain from after July 2019, basically July 2019 minus July 2018). There are no changes among the top four positions. Rubensan is the only new entry to the top ten, coming in at joint number 6. Konosato also makes a big move up the standings - but land up just outside the top 10. Over-and-out! Jejima Sanyaku level 1. (=) O1E Flohru 519 (-2) 2. (=) O2E Bill 474 (+8) 3.

  8. Announcing the July 2019 edition of Guess Kisenosato's Aite.... Guess Hokutofuji's Aite All you have to do is guess M1W Hokutofuji's opponent each day, before the torikumi comes out. If you guess correctly, you get a shiroboshi. This is surprisingly more fun (or frustrating) and challenging than it should be. It also gets you to think a bit more about the 'inner-workings' of sumo. Here is the current banzuke:- Banzuke for July 2019 Sakura (Y1W 10-5 ) Y1 Gurowake (YOE 10-5 ) Jakusotsu (Y1E 9-6) YO Kuroimori (YOW 9-6) chishafuwaku (K1E 10-5) S1 Ryoshishokunin (S1W 8-5-2) Jejima (K1W 8-7) K1 Umizoi (M1W 9-6)Profomisakari (M1E Kosho) M1 orandashoho (M2E 8-6-1) Tenshinhan (S1E 6-8-1) M2 shimodahito (M3E 7-8) WAKATAKE (M2W 5-8-2) M3 Jaakunakunshu (M4W 5-4-6)The Kyokai (M3W 3-12) M4 Andonishiki (mz 6-3-6) Comment: Sekiwake chishafuwaku will be considered for promotion to Ozeki if he wins the yusho, or gets a very good Jun-yusho. The rules are as follows:-1. Guess M1W Hokutofuji's opponents on each day of the basho.2. Entries need to be in before 11:30 am Japan time on the previous day, except for the days 1 and 2 entries which need to be in before 11:30 am Japan time on the Friday prior to the start of the basho. If it turns out that the daily toriukumi is printed before these times, then any entry proved to have come afterwards is not allowed for that day (so enter early to be safe).3. Tie-breakers to decide the Yusho.... We look at the result of the day 15 prediction, then day 14, and so on back to day 1. If still a tie, then the highest ranked on the banzuke can claim the Yusho.4. If M1W Hokutofuji goes kyujo during the basho, we switch to M1E Asanoyama (M2E Aoiyama, then M2W Endo kept further in reserve, if needed due to a mass spate of kyujos) for the days after his fusensho loss (I.e. we can still guess who gets the freebie). For the immediate day afterwards, (unless it is known very soon after the event), everyone will get a 'kyujo'.5. Players that are leading the Yusho race (especially in the final few days of the basho), are requested / expected to get their picks in very early (before all the other players, if possible) - in order to avoid suspicions of 'tactical picking'.6. If the kyokai changes the originally posted torikumi for any day (such as for a late kyujo), the first version released will be used for the purpose of this game. Special prizes (many thanks to Yaochoyama): 1. Outstanding performance (shukun-sho) - the one who correctly picks the aite the most consecutive days. You have to have a minimum of three to win this prize. 2. Fighting spirit (kanto-sho) - the one who limits their incorrect aite picks to the shortest number of consecutive days (literally the one whose longest losing streak is the shortest). Any losing streak of 5 or more days would disqualify you from this prize. 3. Technique (gino-sho) - the one who is best at making correct picks when no one, or hardly anyone else does. A point system is used as follows and you need at least 3 points to claim this prize: 3 points if you're the only win to make the correct pick 2 points if you're one of two to make the correct pick 1 point if you're one of three to make the correct pick New players () are cordially invited to this game - it is an official second league © game!

    I am sending this by smartphone from a village in the Philippines. So little comment, as I am also trying to keep my two boys out of mischief. The banzuke was made by Flohru (who did most of the work this time), Kaiomitsuki and Jejima, with the usual crew watching. Norizo has been repromoted to Ozeki, 'the easy way'.

    Congratulations to chishafuwaku! Many thanks to Jakusotsu for looking after the game. I will probably do the final posts for this basho in a few weeks time when I am back from holiday.

    Invitation to play Bench Sumo

    It is the unofficial 20th anniversary of Bench Sumo this basho. I'm hoping that some former players may return to the game ready to celebrate. Also, new players are always welcome to join. To see how - read the messages above.

    Due to going on holiday mid-way through the basho to an Internet challenged part of the Philippines, I will request a kosho.

    Banzuke for Nagoya 2019

    In March 2000, Takatoriki won the yusho with a 13-2 record from the rank of M14E. For the subsequent basho he was ranked at K2W. In other words, he was promoted to komusubi, even though there were two other rikishi with better claims for the komusubi rank, on the basis that he was the yusho winner from the previous tournament. I think Asanoyama was robbed....
