    GTB Natsu (May) 2021- and results!!

    Not quite, I have him at M11e, but my guess is an absolute mess this time to be honest. Wild hunch: Hoshoryu above Chiyonokuni.

    March basho 2021

    And the second tachiai looked identical but wasn't a matta, ergo nonsense.

    March basho 2021

    I'm no Teru fan, but that matta call was nonsense.

    Gah, I really should read the fine print for games, it may improve my chances Sorry.

    I'm pretty sure Hakuryuho has this tied up already due to his x pick for bout 5.

    Invitation to GTB- Hatsu 2021- and RESULTS!!

    Huh, looks like you are correct, I did the terrible thing of assuming that O1/O2 etc were treated as different ranks for GTB, but looking back at my second entry I got 1 pt each for Haramafuji/Kakuryu being switched over Y1/Y2. Every day is a school day At least its only 2 points dropped due to my own stupidity!

    Talking of glaring errors, I was so concerned about the Komosubi question that I forgot to swap Shodai and Asanoyama That's 4 points dropped already, great

    Invitation to GTB- Hatsu 2021- and RESULTS!!

    I really don't like my entry, it's too by the numbers and pat (for the most part), not nearly enough crazy. Second option was to enter with what I genuinely think they will do, but it looks such an unmitigated mess that I can't bring myself to do it! hope everyone else had this dilema

    Shohozan goes it alone - the veteran poll 2021

    Looking at the guys he's likely to fight in January, I think he will have one last brawling hurrah, get repromoted to makuuchi then slide all the way down to bottom of juryo to retire at his home basho.

    Makunouchi yushos in 2021

    Y Hakuho (Takakeisho Jun (playoff) yok promotion) S Terunofuji Y Takakeisho Y Hakuho K Mitakeumi S Takayasu
  14. I'm going to be positive and assume everyone stays vaguely healthy: Takakeisho Y Terunofuji O1 Asanoyama Shodai O2 Takayasu Shodai holds on by the skin of his teeth, Takayasu repromoted at end of year after claiming first yusho. Asanoyama gets 6 double digit KK but no yusho. Mitakeumi gets another yusho but fails on yet another Ozeki run.

    Terunofuji - is it his time to shine?

    He will also change his shikona to Mumm-ra
  16. Shatsume

    Ichinojo in 2021 - has his inner fire been relit?

    Marginal KK 3 times, a 10-5 and a couple of really bad MK.

    21 November 20, The Results

    I am very happy to win my second 21 game yusho (Again it coincides with generally bad bad results elsewhere ) Many thanks to Profomisakari and Asojima for running the game. Asojima, your darts skills will be missed!
  18. 5 wins and Enho stays up. Guaranteed. I am not generally a fan of slappy sumo, but Takakeisho has solid technique. He also has hinkaku in spades. I am beginning to think I would like to see him as Yokozuna.

    Hakuho income after intai

    That's a bit Sloppy mate, although technically correct, it implies that competition bouts are the only work they do. Take training/travel away from home and public appearances/duties in to account and it's more like 10 cents a second. Slight difference, although still a number I personally wouldn't sniff at

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

    /S??? Same Heya...

    Can but hope He could be the first ever 10-5 yusho winner! (I'm joking about this bit obvs)
  23. Shatsume

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

    He is almost certainly safe with 5 wins, I think even 4 may do the job, as Abi is definitely down, Ishiura and Kyokutaisei all but certainly down and things aren't looking rosy for Shohozan which would put him 5th in line to go down. I also reckon there's likely to be someone else in front of him (Shimanoumi?) for demotion. Depends what happens in juryo of course , but already I can't personally see more than 4 promotion candidates.

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

    I agree with Amamaniac, my one and only yusho prediction for this basho: Takakeisho takes it with a 12-3 with multiple Jun yushos at 11-4. Hardly crystal ball level predictions to say an Ozeki will win it I guess
