    Dangerously close to the third rail...

    Takanohana was in the hospital at the time with a high fever. Otherwise, yes, he likely would have been the one doing it instead of Akebono.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    I know, plenty of naturalized citizens do pick a Japanese name, I'm just saying it doesn't seem to be a requirement in order to naturalize:

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    At least from what the wiki page on Japanese citizenship (here) is saying, that's not a requirement. Entirely possible Badarch Dashnyam/ バダルチ・ダシニャム is his Japanese legal name.

    Banzuke for Natsu 2019

    No, both of them retired but the DB didn't pick up on it and marked them banzuke-gai for the Natsu banzuke. Doitsuyama fixed that.

    May Banzuke

    They moved it from October 5th for this year. 2020 still seems to be the normal date for now.

    Kensho Haru 2019

    Kensho don't contribute to the mochikyukin number, those are one-time payments only (though part of the withheld amount contributes to their retirement pay). Wikipedia has a good mochikyukin article if you need an explanation.

    Banzuke for Haru 2019

    60 yen (equivalent to a 240,000 yen payout, as shown) is the minimum mochikyukin value for those in makuuchi. Same reason the other four listed at 240 have that much, they haven't been around long enough to accrue a large-enough bonus. If any of them get demoted back to juryo, they lose the difference between their pre-promotion account and 60...which I believe in Tomokaze's case will be 13.

    GTB January 2019 Hanukka edition and results!

    First top 25 placement and first time in the sixties...I'll gladly accept it, but I won't lie, I'm slightly disappointed that I got most of the big questions wrong. Still, it's a KK and progress up the GTB banzuke, I'll just have to gambarize further.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    He had a bout scheduled against Asahifuji that he failed to show up for, so it counts as a loss (albeit one by default) instead of an absence. Nothing odd about it.

    GTB 9-shoe 2018- Invitation to play and results

    53 by my count. Top half of maegashira was a disaster (5 points scored in M1-8...) but I managed to get M9-16 perfect with the exception of switching Chiyoshoma and Daiamami.

    GTB - Nagoyim 2018 Basho - + Results!!

    First kachikoshi for me! With that said, I completely blew the ozeki placements, so I'm still disappointed in myself for losing those points. I must gambarize and further develop my brand of GTBing...

    GTB - Nagoyim 2018 Basho - + Results!!

    Thankfully I managed to get my entry in yesterday during one of the moments when sumogames was still up... Not optimistic at all (like usual), but we'll see what happens.

    Preparations of the masses- May 2018

    There's a seperate thread for Ura, but one of the coaches at his stable posted a day or two ago that the earliest he'll be back is July.

    Preparations of the masses- May 2018

    Yes, which is why he's preparing for Nagoya, not Natsu...

    GTB- I Plumb forgot Hatsu 2018..and da results!!

    37 points...honestly about what I expected, though I was preparing for complete disaster. With that said, not keeping Hokutofuji as a maegashira instead of K2e seems to have cost me an extra 11 points and four GTB wins...
