    Putting Ichiyamamoto above Shonannoumi is the only decision i'm currently feeling twitchy about.

    Would love to see Kitaharima back in Juryo again before he retires. Can't see it happening though...

    What makes a great ozeki?

    Not sure if this will add much to the conversation, but I just did a quick search for 60 wins across 6 basho (arbitrarily >1960 and starting as lower sanyaku only) which produced only rikishi that went on to become Ozeki. Slightly more interesting is 54 wins in 6 basho (excuse poor query methods): http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&columns=6&rowcount=3&sum_wins=54&sum_range=6&group_expand=on&group_by=rikishi&form1_rank=k-s&form1_year=>1960&form2_basho_nr=6&form2_rank=m16-s Throws up 3 rikishi that never made Ozeki and 2 that have not yet, but may.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yūshō Discussion Natsu 2023

    Kind of an unwritten rule that gtb entries aren't posted until after the deadline. The fun part is in between the deadline and the reveal, where minute differences are argued and then we are all wrong anyway. Because Banzuke committee...

    Today's half a bottle of wine thoughts, without having read today's comments: Subjective dead body rule not applied today... What even is Hokuseiho?? (his fighting style is whack, I had thoughts of 'drunken fist,' but sumo style) Takakeisho henka was not a henka. Something that never occurred to me before is that Wakamotoharu has the split second decision making ability to change tactics and make them work without looking awkward that I've mostly only seen in Yokozuna before. Not necessarily from watching just today's bout, more cumulative thinking.

    GTB invite- Natsu (May) 2023 - 159 entries. RESULTS!!!

    That is something I've considered looking at in the past, but I never seem to have the time. Also, my standard way of playing GTB these days is to get in the mindset of the committee (i.e. have a few drinks) and see which of the several original possibilities I like the look of best
