    Games Talk Aki 2019

    I do not speak a single word of German, yet the use of their forum is pretty straightforward. At the beginning I used Google translate for some unclear words, then I learned how to do

    Jacques Chirac RIP

    This is a very sad news indeed. He was a true fan of sumo, personnaly attended hon-bashos and was a personnal acquintance of several rikishi. He also invited the rikishi for a jungyo in Paris in the late 90's. I used to live in France and various Frenchmen I spoke to told me that Jacques Chirac was very popular amongst the French people, across all political preferences (which is rare enough to be highlighted)

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Terunofuji has droped by sitting out of tournaments, not by piling-up make-koshi records. It seems fine as long as he only gets kachi-koshi records on his way back. Hard to predict what kind of reactions and criticism he might get if in one of the upcoming tournaments he gets a make-koshi record as a "too low" rank

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    That is a very sad news indeed. I guess moto-Terao will kinda inherit the Fukuzono family affait of the Izutsu kabu... unless Kakuryu has plans

    Yoshikaze situation

    He could wait until Monday or Tuesday after the tournament (so before the banzuke committee) so that the kabu borrower can have one more basho as oyakata, and he gets some more money from salaries, bonuses and kabu loan...

    New recruits for Aki 2019

    Since the mongolian recruit will not be maezumo this time, if there is no returnee from banzuke-gai, it is possible that only one guy will show up for maezumo. What happens in this case? A pairing against a jonokuchi rikishi?

    Congrats Bill for the yusho! Been denied an ozeki promotion over a mono-ii, my fate was being Tochinoshin-ed It's amazing I'm having my best year ever as a sumo gamer (8th in the standings) and yet to win a single yusho this year (is there a special prize for that?)

    Juryo Promotions for 2019 Aki

    I guess they considered that those two bouts (Arawashi vs Kaisho and Kotonowaka vs Wakamotoharu) were direct exchange bouts. There is no other reason I can see for a Ms4w at 4-3 is ranked in front of a Ms5w at 5-2.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    There is no doubt Izutsu owns his kabu. The only case the "Owner" column is filled is when the "Holder" column is either "vacant" or another rikishi (loan). In all other cases, the holder is obviously also the owner.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    ? Natsu 2019 Ichinojo (4-7-3) vs Myogiryu (6-8) Kyushu 2018 Kagayaki (4-10) vs Ichinojo (6-8) Only in the last 6 tournaments. In both cases sanyaku vs maegashira. In both case an alternative with other sanyaku vs maegashira, both kachi-koshi, was available.
