  1. That's the issue. We don't know for sure what will happen. Theortically both he and Tamawashi could finish 10-5 and in such an event Kotonowaka would be ranked ahead of Tamawashi.

    In case it wasn't clear. @Athenayama is not involved in running the game, but is helping me out by posting when the deadline has passed.

  9. I'd say that Tochimaru should warrant a ~ rather than an X. The best he can do is a 6-9, and we've seen a few 6-9s save their Juryo rank when there aren't decent candidates to promote. Here we only have one decent candidate so far, Roga who should be taking Asanowaka's spot (assuming that he's going down). I'd also X out Sadanoumi. At most we'll have two spots open in Sanyaku and he should already be behind Tobizaru and Tamawashi even if he wins out. EDIT: I think Ura and Meisei will also be out too.
  10. 12 Tobizaru I'd like to see a sanyaku opponent, but I don't think there is a good fit.

    Lower division celebs results

    That makes sense, otherwise they'd have to ruin the Sandanme yusho race.
  12. I'd also like to say thank you for doing the tables. I know how long they can take.
  13. My understanding of Asashosakari's method, which I used, was to base the X/O in a rank-number combination rather than percentages from the db. Whether or not any gets demoted depends on the records of the people around them including those on the other side of the division line. Let's say we have a 6-9 J13w. He has a demotable record by the numbers. Let's also say we have a 7-0 Ms7, a 5-2 Ms1e and a 6-1 Ms1w and the next best promotion candidates are a pair of 4-3s at Ms4. If our J13w is the third most demotable rikishi then they are not likely to stay. If however there are four more demotable rikishi ahead of him in the queue then he has a good chance of staying as a 4-3 at Ms4 might well be considered not good enough to force down a 6-9 J13. So a 7-8 J13 probably has done enough to avoid demotion and can be marked with a O; a 6-9 will need some banzuke luck and should be marked ~ and a 5-10 or worse is probably getting demoted regardless and should be an X. The X means has not met the target for a desired outcome and the O means has met the target. If your target is not being demoted then for an M16 the target is 8 wins, for M14-15 7 wins, M12-13 6 wins etc. If your target is being promoted then the target is 8 for J1, 9 for J2-3, 10 for J4-5 etc. Of course, for promotions to Makuuchi we've often seen cases where rikishi get promoted a couple of wins short of target.

    My apologies for not getting this out sooner.

  15. We don't really have any precedent (that I've come across) for what would happen if someone ranked that low went 7-0 and there were no open slots available. I don't think Tochimaru would be in banzuke luck category yet either. The banzuke luck usually means good luck for the rikishi marked as such. If he stays in Juryo at 7-8 that would be expected. If he gets demoted with a 7-8 that would be bad luck for him.
  16. The Juryo-Makushita line seems even more rigid at the moment with demotions only happening if they can't be denied or if someone makes an undeniable claim from Makushita. They've been pretty stingy on promotions to Juryo recently and I would think a 7-8 from J13 should be pretty safe.
  17. I disagree that Tsurugisho is a confirmed demotion. When Mitoryu won the Juryo Yusho and had a strong promotable record as was not promoted because there were no open slots available for him, and that was with Chiyonokuni sitting at 7-8 one slot up from the bottom of the division. A 7-8 for Tsurugisho would not be a demotable record unless it was forced by something undeniable from Juryo (or the banzuke committee decides to become like Bench Sumo and allows for more fluid movements). I've adjusted in red what traditionally have been the numbers required for safety and I think Ryuden and Kotoeko are safe.
  18. Which is what happened. I was thinking Tamawashi if Terunofuji was still in, but Ura if he was out (so they could do Tobizaru - Tamawashi)
  19. A kyujo or two could have a big difference, but I'm not going to be able to pay attention to the injury news today. 11. Ura

    Here you go. I hadn't noticed that the original query did not include 0 wins. Also this

    It's because you added losses in. The db doesn't count absences as losses. So the starting at MK query is now this and the starting at KK is now this.
