  1. Well my friends, we have finally come to the end of the year 2020. And what a year it was. It certainly did not go the way we expected it to, with a worldwide pandemic shaking the very foundations of how we operate, and the sumo world was no different. It had it's fair share of infections, with a whole heya having been prevented from competing in Aki, and the unfortunate passing of Shobushi soon after the pandemic really gained ground. With that being said, we didn't expect that Takakeisho would be the last ozeki standing, but Asanoyama and Shodai had untimely injuries. January holds a lot in store for the top, as we are could be seeing the current yokozuna for only a short time more. They will be fighting for their careers, and Asanoyama and Shodai will be fighting to keep their ozeki ranks. Takakeisho is on a tsuna run, having gotten his long awaited second yusho. And of all people, Terunofuji is trying to go for that second run at ozeki, which would complete one of the most inspiring Cinderella stories we can imagine. Kudos also to Shimanoumi who gave us a glimpse at a possible 3rd M17 yusho for 2020, which would have made everyone go crazy. Last but not least, we say goodbye to Kotoshogiku, whom I can personally credit with starting this transitionary period that we are seeing. And now my friends, on to Top 10 Sumo November 2020 Edition!!!

    Day 15 results: Ura - loss (wolfgangho, Athenayama, Benihana, chishafuwaku, Tenshinhan) Midorifuji - loss (Akogyokuseki) Ikioi - win (Flohru) Daiamami - win (WAKATAKE, Tameiki) Nishikigi - loss (Fujian) Azumaryu - win (Achiyama) Churanoumi - loss (ScreechingOwl) And this concludes the basho! Tameiki and WAKATAKE both ended up picking Daiamami, having the hunch that he would be victorious over the winless Fujiazuma. Unfortunately for WAKATAKE, that means Tameiki got to extend his streak. Congratulations to @Tameiki on winning his first ever JWS yusho! On top of that, he extended his streak to 10, meaning he has entered the top 10 again and can try to challenge for the record in January! Yusho 10 - Tameiki Jun-Yusho 9 - WAKATAKE Active streaks: 10 - Tameiki 9 - WAKATAKE 5 - Achiyama 1 - Flohru Thank you to all for participating in JWS for the year 2020! What a time to close out what we can definitely call a crazy year. I hope to be seeing you all (and those who could not participate) next year when we resume in January! Kekka and banzuke to follow soon.

    JWS November 2020

    It's the last basho of this crazy 2020 year!!! JWS November 2020 is around the corner and we are trying to see who will win this last basho. chishafuwaku was our winner from Aki 2020 and seeks to prolong his winning streak to try and break his own record this basho. Will we have any surprise winners this basho? The goal of the game is to pick one juryo rikishi that you think will win for the day and try to get the longest streak possible. Rules below! 1. Pick one Juryo rikishi from the 28 ranked on the banzuke that you think will win for the day 2. You can opt to use your main pick from day 1 for the rest of the basho, or you can play daily using the Survey Monkey links 3. All Juryo rikishi are eligible for daily picks, even those in makuuchi or makushita crossover matches. However, you cannot pick their makuuchi or makushita opponents 4. It is requested that you submit your picks via the Survey Monkey link, but you can also submit picks here in this thread, by PM, or by email 5. Deadline for daily picks is 2pm Japan time (9pm Pacific Standard time), late submissions will not be accepted. Senshuraku deadline for picks is 1:30pm Japan time (8:30pm Pacific Standard Time) due to the early start times 6. Matches involving a kyujo rikishi (withdrawal) will not be eligible for submission 7. If you are playing daily and miss the deadline, your main pick from the previous day will be used 7. Please designate 1st, 2nd, and 3rd default picks for the basho a. If your main pick goes kyujo, either through daily play or for the entire basho, your 1st default will be substituted to your main pick b. Your 1st default will be replaced if they go kyujo to the 2nd default and so forth, unless you change your main picks and defaults c. If your main pick is involved in a kyujo match for the day (fusensho or fusenpai), your 1st default will be substituted. If the 1st default is also involved in a kyujo match, the 2nd default will be used (3rd default if 2nd is also kyujo). If all four of your picks are involved in a kyujo match, you will automatically have a loss for the day 7. You may change your default rikishi at anytime during the basho as long as you make your submission before the deadline. Missing the deadline will result in the previous default being used 8. A loss by your pick will wipe out your winning streak and you will have to start over 9. Everybody on the forums are allowed to participate and you may send a submission on any day of the basho 10. The player with the longest streak in the basho will be declared the yusho winner 11. In the case of a tie for longest streak of the basho, a tiebreaker will will be used to determine the winner. Criteria is also taken from results in your streak only 12. Active streaks that do not end on senshuraku (last day) of the basho will continue into the next basho from day 1 Tiebreakers: 1. Picking the same rikishi the most times 2. Second longest streak 3. Most picks with the least consensus among your peers (if you picked someone who was not picked by most other players) 4. Picking rikishi with losing records to win 5. Strength of schedule based on the final records of the opponents beaten during your streak 6. Winning streaks of your 2nd and 3rd defaults. This applies to what your 2nd and 3rd defaults were up to day 8 to prevent cheating. You are still free to change your defaults after that but the 2nd and 3rd defaults up to day 8 will be used for tiebreakers only. Both defaults will be looked at 7. Highest number of wins that you scored that did not apply to your 1st and 2nd streaks 8. Wins by picks against higher ranked rikishi *Clarifying language added to tiebreaker 8 Kekka scoring: Your kekka record/scoring is determined on a curve factor. The longest streaks of all players are added at the end of the basho and the total sum of the streaks is then divided by the number of players in the game to get the average streak up to the second decimal. The score is then rounded up to the next whole number to determine the KK line. To register, complete the simple form in the link below. Check if you will play the game or declare kosho. Day 1 link will be posted after the torikumi has been announced. Looking forward to playing with everyone this basho! Registration link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2Y2QXNC

She'll need help though because both Tameiki and WAKATAKE managed to win, now within one and two of her. Will both players be able to catch her?

  13. I don't doubt it. The NSK, YDC, fans and even the yokozuna themselves understand what's happening. While people have been trying to say that it's been happening for years now, the writing is clearly on the wall that the yokozuna will not finish out 2021. If they want fresh blood, they need whomever takes that opportunity in the absence of the others, this was similar to when Musashimaru made on his time.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    It would seem to me that those who are trying to make their cases against rzombie's pointless arguments at this time should just give it a rest. It seems very clear to me that he is trolling this thread and unfortunately taking away from the accomplishments that Kotoshogiku has achieved over the years and not giving him the respect that is due. He is coming back with the same tired argument, although I would love to see if he does have a response for Atenzan.
  23. This is interesting considering Wakanohana III did end up getting promoted with 12-3 yusho. Of course it all depends on the mood of the YDC too
