    Trump coming to the basho

    Having the POTUS (whoever he is) on the dohyo on day 15 of the new era's first basho is a quite clever political move for tightening the links between Japan and the US. The incumbent is quite controversial but it doesn't matter at the end of the day, all advertisement is good advertisement, and I think it should be treated as POTUS visiting the basho as it is not a private trip. Does anyone know when was the last occurrence a foreign head of state stepped on the dohyo? (if it ever happened before). I cannot imagine the state of mind of the security guys if a zabuton rain occurs though

    Haru 2019 SB Masters Results

    Whaw, I just saw the results. I thank I did quite well because I was top 10 in seveal games but I did not expected a podium spot. Even with no yusho this is by far my best basho ever with over 60 points. Congratulations to the winner and the tremendous amount of points!

    60th Yokozuna Futahaguro passes away

    The wikipedia encyclopedia (both english and japanese) dates the death from February 10th, with a japanese reference. That is quite a long notice time.

    60th Yokozuna Futahaguro passes away

    That is really sad, 55 is quite young, and he had not had a long career, being kicked out ozumo at age 24. Kitao will be remembered as the yusho-less yokozuna... although he rushed the ranks all the way to the higher rank

    New Ozeki Takakeisho

    If he has a long-standing ozeki career, in 12 years from now, people could refer to him as "the ozeki from another era". That is cool

    New Juryo Natsu 2019

    Fujiazuma just needed one more win to force the exchange with Akiseyama. He had a tough opposition including two juryo rikishi but that is the program of the top makushita guys. Seiro on the other hand had a slightly easier roaster, and won against the only Juryo he faced. He will likely be promoted next basho with another kachi koshi

    Retirees after Haru 2019

    After the first days of this Haru I though there was no way he could not be in this thread. Aminishiki is truly amazing.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2019

    In this list, two 9-6 (Miyabiyama and Daiju) were awarded sansho, and had to face multiple sanyaku, even an Ozeki (!) for Miyabiyama. But yes, I do think it will be more difficult to get the 10-5 automatic kanto-sho for rookies

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    I though the minimal number of sekitori basho was 30 (except inheritance cases), but here he has 29. Since he is borrowing, he cannot inherits. Can anyone correct my understanding?

    Games Bugs

    @Profomisakari I noticed this bug even before the basho begins, and it happens every other basho in the automation. I always make sure that it resolves on itself when the day in question is done. So don't worry I will check if Kagayaki wins and make sure your point total is not higher than it should be

    GTB March to your room with no dinner, Mr! 2019+ results!!

    A very poor 48 for me, double digit makekoshi is deserved

    Lone maegashira in last rank is always east. The east-west equilibrium rules are only for sanyaku (I guess because they have their shikona written SUPER BIG in written banzuke and their body in BIG SIZE as well for printed banzuke)

    Trump on senshuraku?

    This could be interesting as a matter of advertisement. But I wonder for the security stuff, the US president is heavily protected, and I wonder how it can be done in Kokugikan without disturbing normal operations. Also, the time of american rikishi is long gone, and I don't see the Kyokai organising any king of jungyo in the USA. Also some messages in this thread need moderation.

    Heisei strongest yokozuna ranking

    Debatable. Exchange Harumafuji and Asashoryu career timespan, and both would get 15-20 yusho imho. Comparisons are hard for this very reason that adversity varies
