    Most of them, fixed on a rikishi, on the first&last or fixed on other bouts, but there is always a contingent for the big kensho sponsors to place more on special bouts of interest - Ichinojo and Aoiyama have no sponsors at all though, so nobody cared.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Concentration/focus - concentrate (more/better) on a task, on anything you do and you will get better, deliver better results, can put more force into your action. Ichinojo did not say his problem was concentration - his problems are too much weight and a bad back. Anyway, he's more focused this basho and can make use of his full potential by staying concentrated in each bout.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The Onomatsu order to avoid a mono-ii at all costs and get away without making an odd explanation didn't work this basho: he kindled the expectations for a redo, the fans rejoice - he realized his bad phrasing and destroyed their hopes - gumbai doori.

  10. Full video coverage of the basho is vanishing one by one - recording the live coverage is the next best option. All options here use youtube-dl as the fastest option, and for qq in addition the Downloadhelper browser add-on. Abema screen-recording is too tedious for me, and I don't know anyway how to produce a stream in the quality that Miselet did. I rather record the daily stream on YouTube that is already on in makushita - search for "sumo live" to find the daily link. Recording of lives streams from YouTube seems to have been made difficult, because the download speed is extremely slow: often 0.05 times - to get a real time recording, you have to remove ffmpeg from the youtube-dl folder, if you have installed it. The options may not be necessary then, the full command for today is: youtube-dl -f 96 --hls-prefer-native https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7df-v9E5Lk Stop the recording with only 1 time ctrl-C before the stream ends and runs into a loop - 2 times ctrl-C to exit ruins the whole file. Mbovo provides the English stream - especially helpful yesterday when NHK started in the 2nd half of makuuchi, because I can''t find a source for BS anymore. To check the schedule for sumo: https://www1.nhk.or.jp/sports2/sumo/ to record the Japanese stream: youtube-dl http://mov3.co/nhk/ stop the recording with ctrl-C and rename the .part file, e.g. for day 10 rename "http -_mov3.co_nhk-1323674508916.mp4.part" Haru19d10.mp4 Mbovo's videos are best recorded with youtube-dl after the stream is complete. If you want to record the qq stream, you have to find the URL with DownloadHelper, because youtube-dl can't find it. Each of the items seem to work, in the list shown when you click on the DownloadHelper icon, with the option "Copy URL" paste that link into the "" in this command: youtube-dl "" --referer http://live.qq.com/q/sportslive stop the recording with ctrl-C and rename the file

    Ichinojo as reason for his new success revealed that he started archery after the Hatsu basho and with it his concentration has improved greatly. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201903180000837.html
