    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?

    Aminishiki in 2019 - the veteran question

    Hate to say it, but he surely must retire this year /jinx/

    Hakuho in 2019 - Hak Attack Part 15

    2 yusho, no zensho He will also miss part of or all of 2 basho

    Goeido in 2019 - where is he going?

    He will tumble out of ozeki and land around M1
  7. Hakuho Y1 Kakuryu Takayasu Y2 Takakeisho O Ichinojo Entirely possible that Takakeisho is the only Ozeki, but added Ichinojo for yucks

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2019

    I just don't understand this decision (I sort of do but it stinks). It seems to encourage un-yokozuna-like behavior. What would the banzuke committee do if Hakuho had decided to enter the basho on Day 11 and lose 5 times? Or enter on the last day and get a single win? Bleh...

    GTB January 2019 Hanukka edition and results!

    Question about scoring - for Yokozuna picks, is a wrong Y2e pick worth 1 or 0? E.g. If I guess Kakuryu as Y2e but he actually ends up staying at Y1W. I had assumed 0, but comments in the forum elsewhere suggested 1.

    This benefit caused performance mouthpieces to be banned by the PGA where balance and force of golf swing improvement were considered an unfair advantage.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Kyushu 2018

    That 92 pointer by Vikanohara in Aki 2014 was pretty special. Many players scored well that basho, but V was only 4 points off the best possible score for that basho of 96. Got 5 of 6 yusho winners (missed Sandanme Takagi) and one of his Makushita picks scored 5 wins where a 6 winner was available. So 6 of 8 picks were best possible and the other 2 were each 1 win short of best possible.

    Pick The Yusho Winners Kyushu 2018

    Nope, never happened. Your results this basho were still very impressive.

    Top 10 Sumo Records Kyushu 2018 Edition

    From what I have seen of official record counts, the first basho of a rikishi (in Maezumo or as Tsukedashi entrant) IS counted towards totals even though they are not actually 'on the banzuke'. Hanakaze and Hokutoryu both fell off the bottom and had an additional basho in Maezumo, so I would count them for sure. Neither of them were actually 'banzuke gai'. I would think that 'banzuke gai' should be a special case and either not counted in totals or footnoted to indicate those basho with banzuke gai status.
