    Less Sumo Games players?

    Absent coming to the forum, how is someone suppoed to find the SuperBanzuke. Or care about it. Particularly given that it looks like a website that was made 15 years ago, it's not even clear that it's still active. If we're using "Exil's excellent post", that implies we've gotten as far as the forum. However, his post doesn't contain any information about what it's about. It's a fine tool for people that already play, but it's not really an on-ramp. There's also... thirty different games. For no apparent reason. Especially to someone that doesn't yet play any of them. The nice thing about GTB, in contrast, is that it's got a definite reason to exist (unique in category) and a website that, if not modern, at least looks like it's maintained.

    I would guess other factors include "old/creaky websites" and "lack of advertising"---even having been here for several years, I mostly CBF figuring out a bunch of the games' rubbish interfaces, lack of posted rules, etc.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Kyushu 2019

    How much better than a coinflip are we, on average in the long term? Obviously yokozuna-level LKSing is better than a coinflip, but the rest of us sure aren't.

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite November 2019

    Hooray! Thanks to the Js for their efforts running the game. This is literally the only daily game I play, because it's the best one.

    If the annoucement is after the matches, that changes a lot of things. Unfortunately, it means that the kyokai has more information than we do, making the game a bit of a coinflip.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2019

    Maybe for you, but not for the Kyokai. Asashosakari probably has the numbers to hand, but it's exceedingly rare for people below Ms5 with losses to get promoted

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Taping to avoid it is super-not cool. Boxers can hit each other way harder with gloves than they can bare-knuckled because they don't cause themselves damage when they do. Covering the hand in mittens of tape should have the same effect--one can hit people harder than he otherwise would. (If for no other reason than tape is less pleasant than skin to get slapped with.)

    He lost it on review. The shimpan called a mono-ii and reversed the gyoji's decision.

    I thought that them not saving abi-hokutofuji for the san'yaku soroibumi was a possibility, but even if they didn't I expected it on day 11, not 10. Not sure why they burnt that match now. 11. Myogiryu (choo-choo?)

    Endo is a better solution for day 8 than what I had. Dang. 9. Takakeisho
