    2019 a new record low most wins of the year ?

    I voted for Mitakeumi. However, including wins from outside of Makuuchi, I think Shimanoumi has a chance to have more total wins if he gets KK.

    Games Talk Aki 2019

    Thanks for the info! I have been playing Tipspiel for years and did not know that, but managed to play without knowing German. BUT, I can't find "Sprache" to click it...

    Most wins 2019

    It looks like the title for most wins in calendar 2019 is wide open. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&columns=5&show_total=on&sum_wins=30&sum_range=5&show_sum=on&form1_year=2019&form1_month=1&sort_by=sum_total The leaders shown above have results including Juryo wins, so Makuuchi only wins would produce a different list. I would put the favourite as Kakuryu or Mitakeumi, but lots of possible contenders to fight it out in Kyushu basho!

    BG record

    Wow, I hope he came back to say goodbye. He seems in great discomfort and doesn't have enough mobility to put his hands down to the shikiri-sen. I commend him getting a return bout but there is no way he can or should continue.

    Kensho Natsu 2019

    Hakuho has at least 19,851 career kensho according to my tallies from Akinomaki's basho summaries. I am not certain about 2004 Natsu (at least 2) and 2004 Aki (at least 7).

    Games Talk Nagoya 2019

    Yikes, I am sitting in dead last in Hoshitori. I gave the kyujo rikishi way too much value. Good thing I am ranked as Yokozuna in that game...

    GTB Nagoya Basho 2019-results too!

    If you score 80 (and you very well might), then I will score 40 or less. Will be very interesting to see how the banzuke committee worked out the various knotty problems this time.

    GTB Nagoya Basho 2019-results too!

    Made my entry after 3 attempts at it. Still not super happy about it, since I am being inconsistent about how I treat similar records at different parts of the banzuke. But, hey, the banzuke committee don't always work the way I think they should either...

    Bench Sumo news

    Congrats to Jejima for becoming the new all-time wins leader for Bench Sumo. If I read the stats correctly, he surpassed Kintamayama on Day 15 of this basho, now leading 882 to 881.

    Yep, watching this unfold last night was a bit bizarre. Congrats on the win though! - Oshirokita

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Well, all other issues aside, that is an ugly looking leg.

    Chain Gang Rankings (eventually)

    I have 1141 ? Is that good? or correct?

    The Next Ozeki - Natsu 2019 edition

    I want to say Ichinojo but with him sidelined with back issues immediately after his 14-1 basho, I just can't see him accumulating 33 wins over 3 basho. I voted for Mitakeumi, but it might not be for a long, long time (i.e. after Hakuho has retired).

    Games Talk Haru 2019

    After playing Hoshitori Game for the 101st time, I think I have just completed the qualifications for promotion to Yokozuna! I am thrilled - that can be such a challenging game. Maybe I'll try my hand at a few more of the other pre-basho games in future.

    Shouldn't Hakuho be listed in active rikishi with 90+ sekitori basho?
