    Oshirokita intai in several sumo games

    I urge you to reconsider-it takes a second to play and most of us are out by day three anyway so..

    Fuyu jungyo 2023

    Oh...Apologies, this whole discussion is moot, then. I have received a one month ban on posting (except GTB related stuff) and a salary cut of 33%. Additionally, i have been demoted from iin to oout. I am bowing as low as I can.

    Fuyu jungyo 2023

    Didn't they always single out particular Juryo rikishi before COVID? They singled out the Makuuchi guys this time, and they were there by default, no? I guess I'm missing the point here grandly.
  4. It was announced today that rikishi in the 80 and 100 kilo weight classes will not be included in the new rules and if they qualify, they will start at the bottom of Sandanme, if I understood correctly.

    Improving Strategies for Sumo Game

    It took me three years the second time (started from scratch) and 2 and a half the third time (started from scratch). No Makushita when I first started playing back in Kyushu 2000..

    Improving Strategies for Sumo Game

    Sumo Game, like all games, involves more of a luck factor than anyone of us would like to admit. That said, knowing all the facts you stated is of course important. Many will disagree with me on this, but patience is needed to cross the Makushita threshold where a lot of ghosts live. For me in this specific game, it's all about the placement. There is a natural tendency to place the higher ranked rikishi at the top, which I think is a mistake. I used to be one of the top players in this game, but retired after being demoted from yokozuna. I re - entered from the bottom but have been having problems getting back up for a very long time. Maybe next basho in Makuuchi again finally after nearly four years of trying. And I tell you, my rise in rank back then came with a high percentage of luck. My advice-stick with what you are doing- in time, you'll get there.

    YDC convenes after Kyushu 2023

    The YDC was full of admiration for Kirishima and his yusho. "If he repeats this in the same fashion in January, we will suggest a promotion to Yokozuna," said Mr. Yamauchi. They did, however, criticize Houshouryuu's tachiai (at first he was not named by name but in the end it was admitted that this was aimed at Houshouryuu..) behavior with all the stares and 90 second waiting. "Ugly" was the word used, "He will surely be one of the contenders to become Yokozuna in the future and it is very regrettable that he showed this kind of behavior. I personally like him, but." said Mr. Yamauchi. "He's an Ozeki. This cannot be. Watching it, it was unseemly," added Shibatayama. "After day 5 when he was called to the offices and was admonished for his 90 second stare-down tachiai, we expect the Oyakata will be guiding him in the right direction," summed Mr. Yamauchi As for Terunofuji, they expect him to enter January. "It is truly unfortunate that the yokozuna was absent. We will watch his progress, hoping he overcomes his health problems and will enter Hatsubasho.If he doesn't show up it will be regrettable. If that happens, comments may arise.." they said. When asked if he will be faced with one of the three things- "encouragement", "caution", or "intai-advice" - "We haven't gone that far yet. No, it will probably be a statement of our general feelings. We haven't decided anything yet. We'll have to see what happens in January," summed the chief.

    Thanks for the feedback. The half -foreigners are there because that's how this all started. I forgot about Koutokuzan, just like I left out Tochimusashi after he dropped back to Makushita.. As for Fukai, he's been around for quite some time and I still feel he's not good enough. Kitaharima is a good idea. Shouketsu too. And Satonofuji is no longer the yumitorikishi so I'll need to deal with that as well. And Tanji is better than Taiga for now, so I decided to leave the Tiger out for now. Tanji isn't that spectacular either, but half-foreigner. All in all, it's a subjective list of who I think should be followed. It's way too long, inconsistent as you rightly pointed out, and probably something we can do without, but it's stronger than me.. Points taken, will incorporate some of them next basho. Higonomaru? Gut feeling. Wrong, I guess.
