  1. @Asashosakari contacted me and said that he didn't have time for promotion and demotion writeups this time around and wondered if I would do the thread instead. For some reason, in what looks like a bit of a head-ache basho in terms of yusho races and the promotion/demotion lines I said yes.... Day 9 (results,text-only results ) 7-2 Ow, Takakeisho, Se Shodai, M1e Terunofuji, M8w Wakatakakage, M9w Onosho, M14e Tobizaru 6-3 Oe Asanoyama, M5e Kiribayama, M6e Takayasu, M12e Kotoshoho 5-4 Sw Mitakeumi, M1w Takanosho, M5w Takarafuji, M6w Kagayaki, M7w Aoiyama, M10w Kotoeko, M11e Chiyotairyu, M13e Meisei, M17e Ichinojo General intro The basho started with seven sekitori missing. After undergoing surgery in August, it was no surprise that Hakuho pulled out of the tournament. If it weren't for the postponement of the Olympics I imagine that he would have retired by now. The only questions left are when exactly will he retire and whether or not he'll be granted the Ichidai-Toshiyori status or not. Bear in mind that Miyagino-Oyakata turns 65 on 21st August 2022 so Hakuho would have to retire by that date in 2021 to get the one-year retired requirement out of the way if he wants to be allowed officially to run the heya. Joining Hakuho in missing the basho was fellow yokozuna Kakuryu, still suffering from the Day 1 injury back in July. It is looking increasingly likely that we are in the the last 12-months of Kakuryu's career as well. Hakuho's deshi Ishiura also missed the start of the basho with injury and Abi was of course suspended. Down in Juryo, Kizakiumi called it quits due to neck problems and Azumaryu and Fujiazuma as well as the rest of Tamanoi-beya pulled out of the tournament due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Finally, we already saw Kyokutaisei, Yutakayama and Kotoshogiku pull out of the tournament due to injury, but Kotoshogiku came back in an attempt to save his rank, as did Ishiura. Results from day 9 With no Yokozuna and possibly due to the lack of degeiko the quality at the top seems lower, the joi seems worse and we have a lot of parity throughout Makuuchi. The best looking wrestler so far is last-basho winner Terunofuji, looking to write the sumo history books with an unprecedented second straight yusho as a Maegashira. Even he took a couple of days to warm up though. Takakeisho looks to be in better shape this time around and is a co-leader and Asanoyama started off the basho with three straight losses. The net result is that Makuuchi looks a lot like Juryo with 19 rikishi within two of the lead. In fact it's looking more like Juryo than Juryo is at the moment. There are six co-leaders at 7-2. This is better than the nine we had after Day 8 thanks to six of them being paired up. On Day 9 Takakeisho beat Kiribayama, Wakatakakage beat Takayasu and Onosho beat Kotoshoho. For the other 6-2 rikishi, they all won with Shodai needeing two attempts to beat fellow Sekiwake Daieisho. Terunofuji outclassed Hokutofuji and newcomer Tobizaru beat Meisei for the first time. With all the parity, it will be interesting to see what the schedulers do. I suspect that they won't change much, but attempt to scramble in the last few days. If they do need some Sanyaku opposition for high scoring Maegashira then Mitakeumi might be the beneficiary. He could be moved aside so that they could arrange a matchup for a Maegashira against an Ozeki or Shodai. Of course, the shimpan also have Terunofuji as a nice road-block for any aspiring yusho winners from lower in the division. Sanyaku With seven wins already, Shodai is set for one of the Sanyaku slots, but he is aiming for higher things than that. Fellow Ozeki hopeful Mitakeumi is squandering more Ozeki promotion chances. He can still put in double digits, but first he needs to concentrate on that kachi-koshi. Third Sekiwake Daieisho has even more work to do if he is to remain there. Okinoumi has been unable to retain his form from last basho and Endo has been his usual disappointing self. However, both Komusubi could still get a kachi-koshi. Terunofuji is clearly in pole position for any open Sanyaku slots, but we're not short on potential candidates. 0-0-9 Hakuho Y Kakuryu 0-0-9 6-3 Asanoyama O Takakeisho 7-2 7-2 Shodai S Mitakeumi 5-4 3-6 Daieisho S 3-6 Okinoumi K Endo 3-6 7-2 Terunofuji M1 Takanosho 5-4 3-6 Hokutofuji M2 Tamawashi 4-5 3-6 Myogiryu M3 Terutsuyoshi 3-6 M4 Tochinoshin 4-5 6-3 Kiribayama M5 Takarafuji 5-4 6-3 Takayasu M6 Kagayaki 5-4 M7 Aoiyama 5-4 M8 Wakatakakage 7-2 M9 Onosho 7-2 M10 M11 6-3 Kotoshoho M12 M13 7-2 Tobizaru M14 Makuuchi-Juryo No shortage of potential demotion candidates here. Suspended Abi will definitely be going down. Kyokutaisei looks set to join him, and Ishiura and Shohozan would need somewhat of a miracle. Kotoshogiku doesn't look like he could muster up any more wins, but with so many demotion possibilities he could end up staying. I guess we'll have to see how this all pans out. After the most recent banzuke I'm not inclined to suggest that any rikishi with a demotable record is safe, so I've included Yutakayama. He should be safe by the numbers, but could be theoretically demotable if M17 goes away (by a Shodai promotion for example). Also, given the last banzuke with Ichinojo's promotion I may already have removed too many rikishi from contention. I can always add them back in after Day 15 if needs be. As usual in Juryo, not much in the way of credible promotion candidates. Only Kotonowaka and Kotoyuki look like good options at the moment. (~) 2-6-1 Yutakayama M4 ... (1) 2-7 Tokushoryu M8 (2) 2-7 Enho M9 M10 M11 Kotoshogiku 2-4-3 (3) M12 Kaisei 4-5 (2) (1) 5-4 Meisei M13 Ishiura 1-1-7 (5) M14 Abi 0-0-9 (x) (3) 4-5 Shimanoumi M15 Shohozan 1-8 (6) (5) 2-3-4 Kyokutaisei M16 Hoshoryu 4-5 (4) (3) 5-4 Ichinojo M17 (6) 2-7 Ikioi J1 Nishikigi 4-5 (4) (3) 6-3 Kotoyuki J2 Kotonowaka 7-2 (2) (5) 4-5 Wakamotoharu J3 Chiyomaru 4-5 (5) (5) 5-4 Chiyoshoma J4 Daiamami 3-6 (~) (~) 3-6 Daishomaru J5 Kyokushuho 4-5 (6) (~) 4-5 Chiyonoo J6 Akua 6-3 (5) (5) 6-3 Churanoumi J7 J8 J9 (6) 7-2 Akiseyama J10 J11 Chiyonokuni 8-1 (5) Juryo-Makushita The Juryo- Makushita exchange this time has been made complicated by the Tamanoi-beya kyujo rikishi. The Kyokai has said that their enforced kyujo will have to be discussed, but who knows if they'll get any leeway or not. We'll find out the answer to that hopefully when the Juryo promotions are announced. Azumaryu and Fujiazuma if kyujo normally would be shoo-ins for demotion, but I've marked them as ????, because who knows this time around. The first definite slot was opened up by Kizakiumi's retirement and shin-Juryo Oki has provided the second slot by failing to win so far. Kitaharima is also in a bit of trouble. No one in the Ms6-Ms15 extended promotion zone is undefeated, so any promotees will come from the Makushita-joi. Of those 10 rikishi we can rule out already make-koshi Asabenkei and covid-sidelined upcoming talent Shiraishi. J7 Azumaryu 0-0-9 (????)

  2. Juryo yusho race through Day 10: 9-1 J11w Chiyonokuni 8-2 J2w Kotonowaka, J10e Akiseyama 7-3 J2e Kotoyuki, J10w Midorifuji, J13w Nishikifuji In the two matches between the leaders, each was won by the higher ranked rikishi. Every other leading rikishi also won so we'e down to just 6 rikishi within two of the top. That's just one more than Makuuchi has tied for first. I was able to watch Juryo yesterday live (apart from Akiseyama, whom I missed) and I was pleased with what I saw from Chiyonokuni, Kotonowaka and the Isegahama duo. Matches for the leaders: 9-1 Chiyonokuni vs Nishikigi 4-6 8-2 Kotonowaka vs Churanoumi 6-4 8-2 Akiseyama vs Chiyoshoma 5-5 7-3 Kotoyuki vs Daishomaru 3-7 7-3 Midorifuji vs Kyokushuho 4-6 7-3 Nishikifuji vs Takagenji (Ms1) 2-3 No action in the lower division races on Day 10, but on Day 11 all undefeated rikishi are in action. They've been paired up in banzuke order, which means we could end up with just one 6-0 rikishi in Makushita or Jonokuchi or both.
  3. Day 10 (results,text-only results ) 8-2 Ow, Takakeisho, Se Shodai, M8w Wakatakakage, M9w Onosho, M14e Tobizaru 7-3 Oe Asanoyama, M1e Terunofuji 6-4 Sw Mitakeumi, M1w Takanosho, M5e Kiribayama, M5w Takarafuji, M6e Takayasu, M6w Kagayaki, M7w Aoiyama, M12e Kotoshoho Results from day 10 It's not usual that a bout between a pair of M1s has a big impact on a basho, but that is what may have just have happened. Going into the day, Terunofuji had the inside track to the yusho. He was a co-leader and had fought everyone above him. Every other co-leader still had to face higher ranked opponents (I'm assuming in the case of Maegashira). He was bested by Takanosho however and now the yusho is out of his hands having already fought co-leaders Takakeisho (Takanosho's stablemate - Takakeisho beat Daieisho) and Shodai (who beat Terutsuyoshi). He was the only co-leader to lose. Tobizaru beat MK trending Ryuden wheras Wakatakakage and Onosho beat off former pursuers Kotoshoho and Takayasu respectively. The one-behind group shrank considerably because of that with only Asanoyama `winning' against fellow one-behind member Kiribayama. He got a fusen-sho, his second of the tournament; both times against an opponent who got injured in a bout with Takakeisho. Since the Yokozuna run talk has started - I agree with @Reonito. Takakeisho has the better chance, given that he actually is in the lead. I don't expect either of them to be promoted after this basho. Day 11 match-ups With such a reduced Sanyaku, we've been restricted to one intra-Sanyaku matchup every day. The last such day should be Day 11 with Asanoyama-Okinoumi. That may change if they have to break up the Ozeki-Sekiwake matchups. Takakeisho and Shodai take on two-behind Takarafuji and Takayasu respectively. Wakatakakage has Chiyotairyu and Terunofuji faces Myogiryu. We're guaranteed one 9-win rikishi as Onosho and Tobizaru face off against each other. Sanyaku Shodai has a least secured his Sekiwak slot. Can he go any higher? Mitakeumi picked up win six, but wants at least four more. Daieisho on the other hand is just one loss away from vacating the Sekiwake rank. Okinoumi and Endo also lost and so we could be seeing a lot of turnover unless some five-day winning streaks occur. Terunofuji still is in the best position for an open slot followed by Takanosho and Tamawashi who are making good cases at the moment. 0-0-10 Hakuho Y Kakuryu 0-0-10 7-3 Asanoyama O Takakeisho 8-2 8-2 Shodai S Mitakeumi 6-4 3-7 Daieisho S 3-7 Okinoumi K Endo 3-7 7-3 Terunofuji M1 Takanosho 6-4 3-7 Hokutofuji M2 Tamawashi 6-4 4-6 Myogiryu M3 Terutsuyoshi 3-7 M4 Tochinoshin 4-6 6-4 Kiribayama M5 Takarafuji 6-4 6-4 Takayasu M6 Kagayaki 6-4 M7 Aoiyama 6-4 M8 Wakatakakage 8-2 M9 Onosho 8-2 M10 M11 (x) 6-4 Kotoshoho M12 M13 8-2 Tobizaru M14 Makuuchi-Juryo I misread Yutakayama's rank and had him as a potential demotion danger, whereas he seems to be perfectly safe. Tokushoryu got his one win and ought to be safe barring any M17 disappearance. Elsewhere in the demotion zone, Ishiura beat Kotoshogiku and Shohozan beat Enho in the two battles of the endangered rikishi. Hoshoryu was the only other winner down here. With Kyokutaisei not appearing on the Day 11 torikumi I've marked him down with an (x). Based on form and W-L records it could be a struggle for everyone down there aside from Meisei to get the required wins. This includes Ichinojo who has looked like he wants to return to Juryo these last two days. On the promotion side Kotonowaka now has a KK and given the demotion picture and the lack of good candidates he's probably a safe bet to go up. He only needs one more win for a proper promotion record. Kotoyuki remains the only other decent candidate at the moment, though there were wins for Chiyonokuni, Akiseyama and Wakamotoharu. Given the situation I have a number of rikishi listed as (~) who could end up with some extremely lucky promotions. (o) 2-6-2 Yutakayama M4 ... (~) 3-7 Tokushoryu M8 (2) 2-8 Enho M9 M10 M11 Kotoshogiku 2-5-3 (3) M12 Kaisei 4-6 (2) (1) 5-5 Meisei M13 Ishiura 2-1-7 (4) M14 Abi 0-0-9 (x) (3) 4-6 Shimanoumi M15 Shohozan 2-8 (5) (x) 2-3-5 Kyokutaisei M16 Hoshoryu 5-5 (3) (3) 5-5 Ichinojo M17 (x) 2-8 Ikioi J1 Nishikigi 4-6 (4) (2) 7-3 Kotoyuki J2 Kotonowaka 8-2 (1) (4) 5-5 Wakamotoharu J3 Chiyomaru 4-6 (5) (5) 5-5 Chiyoshoma J4 Daiamami 3-7 (~) (~) 3-7 Daishomaru J5 Kyokushuho 4-6 (~) (~) 5-5 Chiyonoo J6 Akua 6-4 (5) (5) 6-4 Churanoumi J7 J8 J9 (5) 8-2 Akiseyama J10 J11 Chiyonokuni 9-1 (4) Juryo-Makushita Down in the demotion zone Kitaharima had a fortunate hansoku win against fellow demotion contender Tsurugisho. He still needs four more wins though to be safe. Tsurugisho still just needs one and is joined in this situation by Mitoryu and Hakuyozan. shin-Juryo Nishikifuji picked up his 7th win and is now safe. No action on the Makushita side of things, but on Day 11 Takagenji gets pulled up to face Nishikifuji, and we have intra-joi matchups between Jokoryu & Kaisho, Chiyonoumi & Sakigake and Naya & Kotodaigo. Ura faces off against Tochiseiryu. J7 Azumaryu 0-0-10 (????)

  5. Welcome to Break The Curse (The Nigate Game) Registration link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/B95R39S Day 15/Dummy Form (see rule 13): https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/B9XZJS6 It's an easy game to play, but you have to pick wisely. In this daily game, you have to choose three Makuuchi bouts where you think a rikishi with a losing head-to-head record against his opponent will win. Rules 1) Every day, choose three Makuuchi bouts listed for that same day. The bouts must follow this form: A) The first bout must contain a rikishi from Sanyaku (any bout with a Y/O/S/K can be chosen). B) The second bout must contain a rikishi ranked M1 through M8. C) The third bout must contain a rikishi ranked M9 or lower. A lower ranked Makuuchi rikishi against a Juryo rikishi can be chosen. 2) Some bouts will fit in multiple categories (e.g. a Y vs M1 bout can be chosen for the first or second bout). However, you may not choose the same bout twice (or more). If you do, the second (or third) instance of the bout will score you 0 points. 3) Any bouts that do not fit the criteria will not score points. 4) You will score points if the rikishi with the losing record in head-to-head wins. E.g. if RIKISHI A has a 30-20 winning record over RIKISHI B and RIKISHI B wins, then you score points. If RIKISHI A wins, then you score 0 points. 5) The number of points you score is calculated by the difference in head-to-head score prior to the bout. E.g. if RIKISHI A has a 30-20 winning record over RIKISHI B and RIKISHI B wins, then you score 30-20=10 points. These points are called base points. 6) When determining points, any previous bouts between the two rikishi that were in a playoff or decided by fusen do not count. I'll be using the head-to-head stats from the database, so if it gives a head-to-head of 5[-1]-8[+1], then that will be used as a 4-8 record in the calculations. 7) Fusen: If your rikishi wins by fusen, then you get half of all points (including the bonus points in rule 9) rounded up to the nearest integer. 8) The Kotoshogiku Rule. This rule has been named in honour of Kotoshogiku's extremely lopsided head-to-head result with Hakuho. The maximum number of base points on any match-up is 20. If RIKISHI A has a head-to-head winning record of 50-5 over RIKISHI B then the base points will be 20, not 45. 9) In addition to the points given as described above there will be an additional 4 points for picking a winning rikishi. This should make some of the lower scoring but low risk bouts more attractive to pick. 10) Day 15. Since the torikumi for day 15 (and sometimes now Day 14) comes out well after I've gone to bed I've provided a dummy form (see link above). 11) Promotion Rules for Ozeki 33 wins over last three basho of which last two in Sanyaku. All those bahso must have a winning record. 30 wins over last three basho of which last two in Sanyaku. All those bahso must have a winning record. AND a Yusho in those three. 2 Yusho over the last three basho (last two basho in Sanyaku) or a Yusho/Jun-Yusho back-to-back combination (in Sanyaku) 12) Entry deadline is start of Juryo 13) Dummy Form: Due to technical difficulties in the past, I have created a dummy entry form. This form allows you to select the day as well as writing in your own rikishi entries. If you do use the form, it is up to you to make sure the entries are correct. Note: If the sumoforum is down, you can always use the dummy form. There will be no technological reason for missing an entry. Here are some reasons why you might want to use the form. Sumoforum is down. Please keep the link to the dummy form somewhere so you can access it. Sumodb is down. If the database is down when I need to create the form, then the dummy form will be posted. Day 15. Since the Day 15 torikumi comes out after I go to bed, the dummy form will be posted. I mess up the entries. If I make a mistake in the entry form, and you are unable to wait for me to change it, you can always use the dummy form. This way no player should have to miss a day. Winning The winner is the one with the most points and the end of the basho. The tiebreaker is decided by the bonus points system. The entry form is an anonymous survey that I post links to here. Note: If the basho is cancelled before the end of Day 12, then the game will be declared null and void.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    A Yusho by an Ozeki is a still a yusho. That is, if it was followed up by another yusho then the promotion to yokozuna would be guaranteed. In such a situation it wouldn't matter about the quality of either one.

    I think Kiribayama pulling out destroys any hope of it being Kagayaki
  11. Thanks to everyone on their thoughts re: Kotoshogiku. There are too many moving parts at the bottom of the Makuuchi to know too much right now. On my thoughts re: Yutakayama and M17. I posited that M17 could go away if Shodai got promoted, but we'd have to still have 3 sekiwake afterward for the M17 to disappear. Other situations might be the three sekiwake and two komusubi end up with kachi-koshi and Terunofuji forces a promotion. So it's possible, if unlikely, that the M17 would go away.
  12. Juryo yusho race through Day 9: 8-1 J11w Chiyonokuni 7-2 J2w Kotonowaka, J10e Akiseyama 6-3 J2e Kotoyuki, J6w Akua, J7e Churanoumi, J10w Midorifuji, J13w Nishikifuji With Makuuchi looking like Juryo, it makes sense that the Juryo race should look more like Makuuchi. We have just one solitary leader in Juryo in the form of already kachi-koshi Chiyonokuni who after taking a couple of years to return to the paid ranks after his injury seems determined to stay. Having Kotonowaka as one of his nearest challengers is not too much of a surprise but having Akiseyama as one of them certainly is. It's probably too early to think about the match-ups for all the leaders, though Day 10 highlights include Kotoyuki vs Churanoumi and Kotonowaka vs Akua. Lower division yusho races: 5-0 Ms5w Ura (Kise) 5-0 Ms28w Tochiseriyu (Kasugano) 5-0 Ms42e Terasawa (Takasago) 5-0 Sd7w Tamakongo (Katanonami) 5-0 Sd20e Hokutenkai (Onoe) 5-0 Sd30w Otsuji (Takadagawa) 5-0 Sd63w Nishinoryu (Sakaigawa) 5-0 Sd69e Nihonyanagi (Onomatsu) 5-0 Sd90e Miryzan (Otake) 5-0 Jd4w Nabatame (Futagoyama) 5-0 Jd14w Hokuseiho (Miyagino) 5-0 Jd47e Shishi (Irumagawa) 5-0 Jd64e Mimurodake (Isegahama) 5-0 Jd79e Ofukasawa (Naruto) 5-0 Jd82e Hagiwara (Naruto) 5-0 Jk5w Hisanotora (Dewanoumi) 5-0 Jk28w Akiyoshi (Onomatsu) 5-0 Jk30e Yutakanami (Tatsunami) In Makushita we only have three undefeated rikishi, which raises the possibility of a big 6-1 yusho playoff. Ura maybe the most well known, but it's not a sure thing with both Tochiseryu and Terasawa capable of the upset. Recovering Nihonyanagi might be the most interesting yusho hopeful in Sandanme. The Jonidan division looks like the most interesting of the lower divisions with Hakuho - disciple Hokuseiho the biggest name and most likely yusho winner, but others in that group such as Nabatame, Shishi and Hagiwara provide more interest than usual. Finally, I have nothing positive to say about Jonokuchi at all...
