    Class Dismissed Kyushu 2019

    Thanks, Wakatake! A difficult basho to predict and a rather lucky yusho. Anyway, the main thing is to get the number of participants up again!!

    If I am not mistaken, the Itachi era is now longer than the Oshirokita era.. Time for another big thank you!

    Another yusho is great, but even better: Two new players!! Thanks Itachi!

    There is a mistake in the survey monkey: M15e should be Daishomaru, not Chiyotairyu.

    That really would be a shame as FS is one of the few games that enjoyed a continuous high number of players in recent years... Thanks for trying to keep it alive and providing us with updates!

    Bench sumo mailing list

    It's referring to Aki - the Kyushu banzuke has not been published. Sumo games will become available next week! Welcome!

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Well, both of them only needed only 9/10 basho to achieve their juryo promotion, but Hoshoryu sure had bigger trouble in Makushita (30-19 record, only one 6-1 in lower Makushita), compared to Takahanda (17-4, two Makushita yusho). And then the biggest difference is Hoshoryu entering at the rather mature age of 18 (in fact close to 19), while Takahanada was only 15. You could find dozens of comparable fast rises to Juryo (even if you only want to look at very very recent examples), some of them leading to greatness, others to nothing. Too early to tell.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    Not sure about synchronzied swimming, but for what I know I do not think Sumo fares much better bullying-wise compared to some ballet schools, for example.. On the other hand, times are changing, in some regions slower than in others. Good to see that Sumo is keeping track. And besides I guess it is more difficult to hush things up nowadays with smart phones everywhere and Internet than it was in the past.

    Class Dismissed Aki 2019

    Congrats, Tenshinhan, on a well-deserved promotion! And thanks to Wakatake for all his efforts. One thought: As the banzuke seems to become a bit top-heavy, you may need to alter the promotion guidelines for Ozeki: 33 wins seems to be too easy, maybe add the requirement of one yusho in three basho. In fact, you are getting promoted with the worst (!) record of all active players (and the same might happen to chishafuwaku next basho). Anyway, hoping more players will join soon!

    I just had the stangest of déjà vu! Funny how things come back to you after over 14 years... But see Doitsuyama's answer in that thread..

    21 Aki 19, The Results

    Wow, no action after day 9? Well, in this case I won't complain! :) It seems I never won two yusho in a year since 2005; thanks, Asojima and Profomisakari for making sure 21 existed that long!
