    Superbanzuke Masters Series Hatsu 2021

    A little later than usual, but I've been quite busy... The results for the Hatsu Masters Series 2021 are now online and available. The first basho of 2021 resulted in the second career Green Mawashi for Ganzohnesushi (his first one was in 2008). He managed a Top 10 score in an impressive 12 different games, among them getting a yusho in Sekitori Oracle and jun-yusho in Ozumo Bingo Game and RotoSumo. This gave him a comfortable lead in the overall standings.Andoreasu receives the shukun-sho for getting second place overall (yusho in Sumo Game, double digit scores in Odd Sumo and TTT). It's his second shukun-sho in a row, thus extending his lead in this category to eight Outstanding Performance Prizes.Sakura gets her first sansho ever, a gino-sho for excelling both in daily games (jun-yusho tie in Chaingang) and pre-basho games (GTB jun-yusho).Finally, Pandaazuma receives his ninth career Technique Prize for getting Top 10 scores in eight different games.Congratulations to all the winners! Also updated (though obviously not different from the Masters results) was the page for the 2021 World Championship,

    Invitation for Makushita Game Hatsu 2021

    Wrap-up. For long stretches of the basho, Oortael was in the lead, but on the home stretch he lost considerable steam, ending up in a 3-way kettei-sen with Yokozuna Andoreasu and Ozeki Flohru. In the kettei-sen, Oortael was kicked out on first bracket (Roga with 3-4 vs. 4-3 records for the other two contestants). On second bracket, Flohru's pick Ichiyamamoto (4-3) outclassed Andoreasu's pick Oshoryu (3-4), so the yusho goes to Flohru! Final Win/Loss records are exactly as indicated on the Results page. Sansho: Shukun-sho: Wamahada (for picking Shohoryu) Kanto-sho: Oortael (64 wins) Gino-sho: Itachi (16.87 points; e.g. 4 points apiece for Tochinobori and Tosamidori). Thanks for playing!

    New sumo between the basho game!

    To all koenkaiers: although kachikoshi evaporates, I'm still hanging on.

    By the way: standings are back. Thanks to Doitsuyama!

    Invitation for Makushita Game Hatsu 2021

    I am flabbergasted just as well. Doitsuyama hasn‘t uploaded the banzuke that I sent to him last week, but this usually never prevented the standings from being displayed in the past. I have contacted him for my bimonthly reminder mail yesterday (banzuke for ISP, Juryo Game, MsGame, initializing Hoshitori Game), but no response so far, unfortunately.

    Superbanzuke Ranking for Hatsu 2021

    Hiya and Happy New Year, the newest and latest edition of the Superbanzuke Ranking (Hatsu 2021) is fresh off the press. See for yourself at http://99998271.com/sb/current.html

    New sumo between the basho game!

    Active --> Bonehead --> Intai
  8. Hi there, here at Makushita Game Headquarters we have long pondered whether the next edition of the game should be started or not. We came to the conclusion that it will take place. If ozumo should be suspended mid-basho, the standings of the last full round (after Day 2, after Day 4, Day 6, Day 8, Day 10, or Day 12) will form the basis for the Haru Banzuke. For your convenience, here is a list of absent Makushita rikishi: Bracket 1: Kotokuzan (Ms3e) Bracket 2: clear Bracket 3: Chiyoarashi (Ms10e), Yuma (Ms10w) Bracket 4: Hokuseiho (Ms15w), Abi (Ms16e), Chiyosakae (Ms16w) Bracket 5: clear Bracket 6: Wakatakamoto (Ms21w) Bracket 7: clear Bracket 8: Toyohibiki (Ms31w) Bracket 9: Kainoryu (Ms35e) Bracket 10: Ichiki (Ms38w) Bracket 11: Asahisho (Ms42w), Chiyonokatsu (Ms44w) Bracket 12: Chiyodaigo (Ms46e) Bracket 13: Kaiho (Ms50e) Bracket 14: clear Bracket 15: clear

    Hi! What's happened while I was gone?

    As you also asked about trust in results: in 2000, Itai (you might remember that name from the Chiyonofuji days) reported that many of his bouts were fixed. Apart from some sensation-seeking tabloids, allegations of bout rigging went on and off. However, 2011 several cases of fixed bouts in Juryo became manifest, leading to the expulsion of 23 rikishi (and the cancellation of an entire basho). No hard evidence for bout fixing (yaocho) in Makuuchi was found at that time. I don't have the impression that yaocho is an active topic right now (with the exception of a US-based fan site which adamantly claims that every won bout by a Japanese rikishi against a foreigner is rigged).

    Superbanzuke Masters November 2020 and World Championship

    That is correct. But you won in January and had decent scores in March, July, and September.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    The SumoDB is not a commercial site. Nobody pays for this valuable information, and it is maintained for many years by a devoted sumo fan at zero personal benefit. Against this background, I find it somewhat irritating if people demand that this person should do this or that. As for the photos: these were all personally taken by another incredibly dedicated sumo fan who unfortunately doesn‘t provide this service any longer. And unless Doitsuyama doesn‘t want to run into copyright issues by using photos from existing Websites, no easy solution is at hand.
  12. Hi there, The Superbanzuke pages have been updated. You can find the results of the Superbanzuke Masters Series November 2020 here. And you can find the Final Results of the 2020 Sumo Games World Championship here.

    World Championship Projections

    I just noticed that my manual Final Standings in Hoshitori Game were slightly off. There are no huge implications for any of the reported standings above, except for one thing: as Andoreasu had a better result in Hoshitori Game than I manually calculated, he overtook Jejima in the yearly standings, thus becoming Hoshitori Game World Champion of 2020. I hope to start with the dreaded Final Standings Web page this weeked...

    Games Bugs

    The glitch in Hoshitori Standings was taken care of by Doitsuyama, so the results are now final.

    That's an interesting point - the yusho bonus points appear on the individual page sheets, but aren't integrated in the Final Standings. I will inform Doitsuyama about it.
