    Konishiki interview

    While looking for news on the Kīlauea eruption, I stumbled onto this Konishiki interview. Figured there may be a few people on here who might be interested in seeing what he's up to these days: Konishiki Yasokichi & Chie Lijima
  2. An interesting post from the SML:

    Nice to see something I came up with on a lark almost 17 years ago is still around today. Nice work

    RotoSumo upate

    Sorry for my absence... work, health, and other issues conspired to consume all my free time and energy. Given that I was already losing interest in Sumo, this effectively hurried the process along. Though I am starting to drift back towards it again, I'm not yet there. I apologize to everyone who plays, has played, Roto and enjoyed the game and my thanks to Golynohana for taking it over and keeping it going so I wouldn't have to shut it down. As far as scoring is concerned... I had three different scales I used for win/loss distribution. They were all based on the same method, which basically compares a players point total to the average (not mean) score for all players in his (or her) division and awarded wins based on the difference. I've used charts #1 and #2 since the game debuted some 11 years ago, while chart #3 has only been in use for about 4 years. Now which one I used depended on a couple of factors. First factor is how tight the scoring is compared to the average. If the scoring spread is large, I will use chart #1 or #3. If the spread is very tight around the average, I use chart #2. Second factor I consider is which chart produces the best overall balance between total wins and losses for all players in their division. Chart 3 is very similar to #1 with some minor alterations and is the one that got used the most towards the end since it tended to fit both criteria very well (most of the time, anyway). If you want these charts Golynohana, PM me and I'll send them to you along with the two excel sheets I used in conjunction with them.

    The new banzuke will be uploaded tomorrow. Sorry for the delay, been working some crazy hours this week.
  6. I should call these "provisional" as when they are compiled by hand there is always the possibility of a mistake creeping in. I finally got everyone sorted into their respective divisions ( a task made harder when the functions on my Excel failed to do it for me... (Raging at computer...) ) I still haven't gotten the individual special prizes done, but I wanted to get the standings posted, so that will have to wait. Chisaiyama captured the top division Yusho by a relatively healthy 21 point margin over Gaijingai. The Juryo race was a lot closer, with Choconofuji edging Nagayama by only two points (in fact the top five finishers were separated by only five points). Makushita went to Onigashima, who finished 15 ahead of Furunahana and whose 1481 points was the highest compiled by any player in any division. Congrats!! Scoring was very tight around the average this basho, which surprised me as I expected there would be more variety in the picks. Anyway, this resulted in a shortage of very good W/L records (the Juryo winner only finished 10-5) Chisaiyama (M9w) 1478 11-4 Gaijingai (M5e) 1457 10-5 Torafujii (M11w) 1444 10-5 Flohru (M12e) 1438 10-5 Bafa (M1w) 1429 9-6 Asashosakari (M16e) 1426 9-6 Takanorappa (M2w) 1425 9-6 Kuroimori (M10e) 1424 9-6 Choshu-yuki (M14w) 1419 9-6 Susanoo (M5w) 1411 9-6 Hironoumi (K2w) 1410 9-6 Gibuten (S1w) 1400 9-6 Vikanohara (M9e) 1397 8-7 GONZABUROW (M7w) 1396 8-7 Frinkanohana (O1e) 1387 8-7 Achiyama (M2e) 1384 8-7 Sukubidubidu (M8e) 1383 8-7 Oskanohana (M4e) 1381 8-7 Nomadwolf (O1w) 1378 8-7 Kitakachiyama (K1e) 1375 8-7 Kaiomitsuki (M10w) 1375 8-7 Heikotoriki (M6w) 1374 8-7 Andoreasu (S2w) 1372 8-7 Ruziklao (M13e) 1369 8-7 Doitsuyama (K1w) 1367 8-7 Tosahayate (M3e) 1365 8-7 Jejima (S1e) 1364 7-8 Norizo (Y1e) 1363 7-8 Larissi (M11e) 1358 7-8 Mariohana (M8w) 1349 7-8 Kyodaitimu (M12w) 1316 6-9 Ganzohnesushi (M15w) 1306 6-9 ScreechingOwl (M1e) 1288 5-10 Fatakiyama (M15e) 1288 5-10 Konosato (M6e) 1274 5-10 Leonishiki (M13w) 1262 4-11 Terarno (K2e) 1261 4-11 Saruyama (M3w) 1244 4-11 Andonishiki (M7e) 1232 3-12 Pandaazuma (S2e) 1224 3-12 Takanosushi (M14e) 0 k-7-8 Randomitsuki (M4w) 0 k-7-8 Choconofuji (J2e) 1431 10-5 Nagayama (J10w) 1429 10-5 Hayaikaze (J12w) 1428 10-5 Bill (J1w) 1427 10-5 Hakajusakari (J11w) 1426 10-5 KikoCookie (J7w) 1412 9-6 Zentoryu (J4w) 1411 9-6 Feginowaka (J12e) 1406 9-6 Bunijiman (J6e) 1405 9-6 Kaiowaka (J1e) 1389 8-7 Smoczayama (J9w) 1388 8-7 Fuseigou (J8e) 1376 8-7 Shimodahito (J5w) 1374 8-7 Anjoboshi (J11e) 1348 7-8 Ketsukai (J7e) 1345 7-8 Chishafuwaku (J13w) 1336 7-8 Seki Haruaki (J14w) 1336 7-8 Aome (J8w) 1335 7-8 Fukurou (J4e) 1323 6-9 Metzinowaka (J14e) 1290 5-10 Mischashimaru (J3e) 1277 5-10 Kotononami (J3w) 1274 5-10 Fujiyama (J6w) 1231 4-11 Mariomaru (J10e) 1191 2-13 Hogashi (J5e) 0 k-7-8 Kitanoyama (J9e) 0 k-7-8 Zenjimoto (J13e) 0 0-0-15 Tainosen (J2w) 0 k-7-8 Onigashima (ms2w) 1481 6-1 Furanohana (ms11w) 1466 5-2 Tikozan (ms4e) 1465 5-2 Gurowake (NR) 1449 5-2 Sebunshu (ms12e) 1413 5-2 Mmikasazuma (ms6e) 1409 5-2 Taka (ms1e) 1406 5-2 Airi (NR) 1405 4-3 Harumataikai (ms4w) 1399 4-3 Fujisan (ms6w) 1381 4-3 Asabiru (ms5e) 1361 4-3 Senkoho (ms2e) 1330 3-4 Andrasoyamawaka (NR) 1306 3-4 Profomisakari (ms1w) 1287 3-4 Rowitoro (ms11e) 1251 2-5 Fuheika (ms5w) 1251 2-5 Konizan (ms8w) 1174 1-6 Wamahada (ms10e) 1154 1-6 Marushiki (ms3e) 1075 0-7 Takanokaze (ms7e) 0 K-3-4 Arawaka (ms8e) 0 0-0-7 Kamogawa (ms9e) 0 0-0-7 Asanomeshi (ms13e) 0 0-0-7 Maruyama (ms3w) 0 0-0-7 Sherlockiama (ms7w) 0 K-3-4 Tsunamiko (ms9w) 0 0-0-7 Veshana (ms10w) 0 K-3-4 Shumitto (ms12w) 0 K-3-4

    RotoSumo upate

    Final Standings will be posted in a couple of days. I need time to sort everyone into their respective divisions and figure the special prize winners. Its a holiday today and I probably won't have that time until late tomorrow. Sorry everybody.
  9. Sorry this took so long... Juryo was a mess this basho with many players competing for the same rank. I did about half a dozen versions and didn't like any of them. Eventually it came down to needing to get this posted, so I chose the version that was least offensive to my banzuke making sensibilities. Anyway, here it is, hopefully compiled without any errors...

    GTB May I have your attention 2014 and RESULTS!

    lol, awesome stuff as always
  11. Can't believe the basho is over already... ScreechingOwl was the winner of a very tight race in Makuuchi that saw the gap from 1st to 6th at only 16 points. Sukubidubidu had a more comfortable 20-point margin of victory in Juryo, with Mariomaru capturing the Makushita crown by 13.

    New RotoSumo Banzuke (Haru 2014)

    Finally finished... Bafa dropped from the Ozeki ranks after consecutive MK, but is replaced by Nomadwolf, who compiled 32 wins over the last 3 basho.

  14. Almost forgot to post this... (I surrender...) For the first time that I can remember, we actually had a basho where we didn't loose players tournament to tournament. Instead we had full participation by all players in the Sekitori ranks, 90 participants in all, which is way up from last basho. Hooray. (I am not worthy...) The top division had a really tight finish that saw Jejima edge Randomistuki by one single point to capture the Makuuchi crown. In Juryo, Tosahayate had a bit more comfortable margin of victory, edging Kyodaitimu by 21 points. The Makushita crown went to Hayaikaze, who finished 64 points in front of former Ozeki Fujisan.

    FINAL - RotoSumo Standings (Kyushu 2013)

    I have three different scales I use for win/loss distribution. They are all based on the same method, which basically compares a players point total to the average for all players in his (or her) division and awards wins based on the difference. I've used charts #1 and #2 since the game debuted some ten years ago, while chart #3 has only been in use for about 3 years. Now which one I use depends on a couple of factors. First factor is how tight the scoring is compared to the average. If the scoring spread is large, I will use chart #1 or #3. If the spread is very tight around the average, I use chart #2. Second factor I consider is which chart produces the best overall balance between total wins and losses for all players in their division. Chart 3 is very similar to #1 with some minor alterations and is the one that gets used the most these days since it tends to fit both criteria very well (most of the time, anyway). For instance, Chart #3 was used for all three divisions this basho.

    Kensho Standings (Kyushu 2013)

    Well, torquato and Akinomaki seem to have all the bases covered (and in much greater detail) so I leave the floor to them and close this thread. (Happy goodbyes...) (Kensho parade...)
  20. Disclaimer: I translate this information from the Nikkan Sports Webpage. It should not be considered official. Nikkan is known to make mistakes in their kensho counts from time to time, but they usually get around to correcting them. Also, Nikkan only posts the top 10 everyday, so I have no idea how many kensho someone not on that list has. After Day 8... Hakuho 101 ¥5,555,000 Harumafuji 61 ¥3,355,000 Goeido 42 ¥2,310,000 Kisenosato 27 ¥1,485,000 Kakuryu 20 ¥1,100,000 Aminishiki 17 ¥935,000 Myogiryu 11 ¥605,000 Endo 10 ¥550,000 Kotoshogiku 9 ¥495,000 Toyonoshima 8 ¥440,000 Apologies for the lateness of this, I've been working some crazy hours this past week. The usual suspects occupy the leaderboard along with the likes of Endo and Miyogiryu.

    Kensho Standings (Kyushu 2013)

    After Day 10... Hakuho 124 ¥6,820,000 Harumafuji 76 ¥4,180,000 Goeido 42 ¥2,310,000 Kisenosato 33 ¥1,815,000 Kakuryu 26 ¥1,430,000 Aminishiki 19 ¥1,045,000 Endo 14 ¥770,000 Myogiryu 13 ¥715,000 Toyonoshima 11 ¥605,000 Kotoshogiku 9 ¥495,000 The Yusho race appears to have come down to just the two Yokozuna, who remain undefeated after ten days of action. No one else is closer than two behind. I won't comment on who won kensho in individual bouts as Akinomaki has that covered in his thread. I'll just keep posting the overall top-10 when I get the chance.

  23. Randomitsuki captured the top division crown, as well as the attaining the highest overall score, the Shukun-sho and the kanto-sho. Frinkanohana took home the Gino-sho. Hogashi won the Juryo Yusho, while Fuheika swept the Shukun-sho, Gino-sho and Kanto-sho. Lastly, the Makushita crown was taken by newcomer Hayaikaze, along with the Gino-sho. Hakajusakari captured the Kanto-sho and Wamahada the Shukun-sho. Congrats to all the winners and I hope to see everyone again next basho....

Hakuho put the finishing touches on a 14-1 basho by throwing down Harumafuji and earning 37 kensho, giving him 274 for the tournament. Kisenosato survived a scare against Kakuryu to pick up 18 envelopes. Kotoshogiku knocked off Myogiryu for 10 kensho, Goeido and Homasho took home 4 apiece and Shohozan 1.

    Kensho Standings (Aki 2013)

    Disclaimer: I translate this information from the Nikkan Sports Webpage. It should not be considered official. Nikkan is known to make mistakes in their kensho counts from time to time, but they usually get around to correcting them. Also, Nikkan only posts the top 10 everyday, so I have no idea how many kensho someone not on that list has. Hakuho 48 ¥2,640,000 Kisenosato 19 ¥1,045,000 Shohozan 17 ¥935,000 Kakuryu 10 ¥550,000 Kotooshu 10 ¥550,000 Kotoshogiku 9 ¥495,000 Okinoumi 7 ¥385,000 Harumafuji 6 ¥330,000 Myogiryu 6 ¥330,000 Goeido 5 ¥275,000 Aki 2013 is under way, with Hakuho occupying the top of the kensho ladder (as usual). Shohozan's surprise win over Harumafuji netted him 17 envelpopes and has him placed third.
