    Greetings from Hungary

    Great to have another hungarian here! ;) If you have time, feel free to check out www.szumo.info :)

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I saw a tweet from NSK, in which they announce the three sansho-winners... (without any conditions). I might be wrong but haven't they say that they won't give special prizes because of the coronavirus? Anyway, the tweet said: Shukun-sho: Onosho Kanto-sho: Takanosho Gino-sho: Aioyama

    Kensho Haru 2020

    I love this topic, and I'd like to use your data to make fancy charts from them to my hungarian sumo fanpage :) Can I have your permission? And also: Where do you find the kensho data? From a public source? Can you share it with me? Maybe it's from the official NSK scorecard pdfs - but can you show me in which column do they show the number of the kensho banners? (I don't speak and can't really read kanji - I started to learn hiragana a while ago, but it's pretty hard for me to understand the system of these symbols...) Thanks in advance!

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Enho Mitakeumi maybe I also thought about that.... I guess: to fall on people must be a softer experience than to fall on the hard ground, but then again the thought of crushing someone next to the dohyo might alter the fall itself, so it's harder to anticipate what will happen, they have less control. I sense complete seriousness (just look at any of the Yokozuna dohyo-iri... f.ex. Hak doing it beautifully! - but also on the dohyo!) I guess they try to prepare the same way, but I'm not sure it's possible with these circumstances... Oh yes, the sounds, as they mentioned it before in this thread (and everywhere on Facebook-groups) and also I think the viewer experience is much more concentrated this way too. This week I've watched some bouts from previous tournaments, and I almost felt the crowd disturbing... :D :D

    I can't find this news on the NSK official website yet... Could you tell us more about him? What's his shikona? Thanks in advance!

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Nobody mentioned Kiribayama vs Tamawashi yet... Both mongolian, a (relative) newcomer and a veteran. I loved that firm push by Kiribayama that made Tamawashi lose! It looked way too easy... :D

    Corona and sumo

    Now... I'm a little confused... Which one is it? Forced kyujo or fake news? :D

    Why do you say sad? Who are you sad for? I enjoy the change of guards!

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Wow! I like that self-awareness. He really said clumsy about himself? To think about it: I'm not a native english speaker but the word 'fluke' is the one, that describes my feelings about him the most... :D (Not this basho...) I'm really curious about him tomorrow, and even more in March...
