    Thank you, Sakura. While we miss Asashosakari's well of knowledge and analysis, your impromptu work as understudy has been very welcome.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - July 2020

    Here's the summary so far. It turns out that the game is completely over going into the final day: literally everyone has either made or missed their target already. The target for Asanoyama was set at 10 wins, yielding a 9:4 split. To sum up: our ballot didn't do very well. A total of 8 of the sixteen made their target. Amongst the backup squad, things were much worse: only two of them got their KK, to the final TB is 10, two below the most pessimistic guess. Oof. Assuming I haven't made an error in data entry (I've doublechecked, but....), the two co-leaders are chishafuwaku and Holleshoryu, on 11/16. With both missing the initial tiebreaker, it goes to countback, and the uppermost rikishi they differ on is Amakaze, who has made his target with a match to spare. This gives chishafuwaku, who had faith in him, the yusho. Congratulations chishafuwaku. Asashosakari will hopefully be along at some point to tell me if I screwed up somewhere and to make the next banzuke. Table note: 1 is KK, 0 MK. This is for spreadsheet maffs on my end.

    I am processing results now, given that Asashosakari is absent. Update shortly.

    Thanks for this thread, kintamayama. It's nice. Are all of Taiho's grandkids siblings as well?

    .... but that's the point! The whole point of late-basho scheduling is to find the people that have something to fight for and match them up.

    It matters a lot to them, though. It seemed to me you were suggesting that Terunofuji himself shouldn't be that interested in winning because it would be bad for him going forward, but the reward in the short term is pretty great. (Also, there's bonus money for yusho winners as part of their salary, IIRC)

    The wodge of cash you get for winning is not insubstantial....

    Oh, yes. Very much so. "Much more likely" doesn't mean "likely". I'd only expect Asa vs. Teru on day 15 after some harder bouts earlier on--potentially including Takakeisho or Sekiwake East Shodai on day 14. My pencilled-in schedule for Day 13 includes Sekiwake West Mitakeumi v. Terunofuji on Day 13, but they may choose someone a bit farther down. Mitakeumi's a bit lacking in reasonable opponents, though.
  12. Ryoshishokunin

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Yes--but they will break the Sekiwake v. Ozeki bouts by preference to the Ozeki v. Yokozuna bouts, especially with both Ozeki putting up respectable records. And given that, I'd expect any skipped bouts on Hakuho's side to not be forward-looking: They'd pencil in Hakuho v. Asanoyama on day fourteen and then try to figure out what to do about Terunofuji. The idea of just delaying Asanoyama's bout against Hakuho to day 15 isn't really the sort of thing that the torikumi committee does.

    I'd be quite surprised to see HvA on day 15. The end of the basho for the top four is very formulaic, and that would involve skipping the HvA bout that's scheduled for day 14 and then having it on the last day. Much more likely is Asanoyama v. Terunofuji on Day 15 if it's still relevant.

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite July 2020

    Wasn't this situation covered by a ruling a while ago--we went with the first-published banzuke on some prior occasion when a post-publication change happened. I think it even resulted in the same opponent being the correct pick multiple times. (Even if my memory is leaving me, I think that's the right call.)
