    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    What factors favour Kotoeko over Terunofuji in the promotion stakes?

    Really, is that a factor?

    It was a beautifully executed move by Enho as well. Justice was served in the end.
  4. Concentrate on one article at a time. Your breakthrough piece is just around the corner.

    I'm just going to assume you're right.

    Well clearly in junior sanyaku the east slots can be demoted to West and the West slots promoted to east when the results require flexibility.

    Maybe not the biggest news of the tournament but he's surely the frontrunner.

    Hope Tokushoryu reads that and realises he'd best enjoy his (possible) yusho and meteoric rise as it's all downhill from then on.

    Interesting. Possibly partly explained by the Sekiwake, where generally a KK doesn't see you promoted but an MK will result in demotion. The knock on effect might result in overpromotions further down to compensate?

    Shodai's ´╗┐won't be either. I've checked, you're absolutely right.

    I've always considered it slightly puzzling as, all other things being equal, a loss at 7-7 or at 8-6 still costs 2 ranks. Is there some other advantage to KK over MK? Maybe just psychological.

    Why would the M1-4 options not be the best ones?

    Are you forgetting Goeido?

    Terunofuji?! is more pithy.

    Resurgence would be better.
