    Less Sumo Games players?

    Let's be honest anyway, if there were thousands of players it would be hard for even very good players to consistently yusho in a game every basho.

    Less Sumo Games players?

    I was actually made aware of sumo due to the scandals, and watched some of the bashos and finally saw every day of a basho for kyokutenhos yusho.

    Haha nice. But it's only Endos very unsuccessful kachiage.

    PR for Hatsu 2020

    It's the same in Tokyo, where the diagonal aisle cuts through the square boxes. You get a little more room per person than the standard 4 person box. There's some 2 person C masu raku boxes that are full sized 4 person masu but priced for two people and a small table is inside. These sell out incredibly quickly though.
  5. Yeah tell that to baseball or basketball. The only thing consistent about the IOC is inconsistency. I mean look at what they did to climbing - its like they are trying to make it as bad as possible. There's no 'best athlete' for all lead climbing, bouldering, and speed climbing. They are different disciplines.

    Kimarite Map!

    My MATLAB mess can grab rikishi id and other relevant info from these html results page and keep them associated, I can try to have it ingest it later when I have time. What's a good output? Something like Kotoshogiku,yorikiri,240,oshidashi,20,etc,50 Just one rikishi per line?

    Metasumo 2020

    Only when I tried to hastily reassemble the SB front page did I understand how many times it has been rehosted before. This creates a lot of dead backlinks which maybe there's not much you can do about it. I would say this might confuse some prospective game players. Adding into to this the game machine only wakes up right before a basho. Some of the games probably are some of the oldest ongoing organized internet events still operating honestly which is pretty impressive. Modernizing the games would take a gargantuan thankless effort and I propose no solution except that I would fund some effort if I ever hit the lottery...

    Would This Work In Suno?

    For some reason it allowed me to read the article earlier this morning, but now blocks it. Not even incognito mode helps. Here is the summary that I remember: - The association implements a weight limit, and will continue reducing the weight limit because nobody wants to see fat dudes fight (with the drooping fat - their words) - Suddenly ssireum players are invited to talk shows (but only ones who you can see the muscles, who are from lower divisions) - The big ssireum players are understandably pissed - Young women come to the arena holding signs that say "I love (wrestler) because he is strong rich and handsome." This pisses off the older fans. - Wrestlers skipped the November honbasho because there was a TV tournament with huge prize money.

    Happy Thanksgiving 2019

    I cooked for 8 people... I'm glad I don't have to cook for a whole heya full of rikishi every day!

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2019

    There's no rule against it but it feels really unlikely. Hokutofuji has the same record at the same rank, so they'd have to treat him the same. That means 2 komusubi spots are occupied. But you have Daieisho and Myogiryu both with winning records and it feels like they should be komusubi. So you either expand komusubi to 4 on pretty weak records for all 4 guys, or you just do the normal thing and Endo and Hokutofuji become M1 (or M2, but maybe Mitakeumi goes there) and Daieisho and Myogiryu become the 2 komusubi. In my mind it's not Abi forcing sekiwake to 3, but Takayasu's demotion forcing it.

    Kimarite Map!

    For the red cluster, there probably just isn't enough data to sort those kimarite into other data, so the just all end up in the middle as a 'default'. I'm not completely sure, but I would bet those in the center of the cluster have a few less data points than those nearer to the outside of the red cluster. When you chose the rare kimarite rikishi, did you limit it to sekitori or anyone is ok? Weird stuff goes down in the lower divisions. I think it can be argued that a lot of the rare kimarite are only possible when the loser does some really weird sumo or some other improper motion. In this case I think its better if they aren't associated with 'good sumo' techniques to be honest.

    Recap of the decade?

    Here's all of the win loss percentages for any makuuchi ranked rikishi in the 2010s. In all, 134 people fought at rank maegashira or above in the 2010s. (These don't include fights in makuuchi when the person was ranked juryo, but does include makuuchi ranked rikishi fighting a juryo opponent) Not surprisingly Hakuho is at the top of this list. Somewhat surprisingly, Tochiozan has the most bouts in Makuuchi in the 2010s (despite recently slipping into Juryo). The worst rikishi is Chiyotaikai at 0%, since his very last basho was 2010 Hatsu with his injury. Impressive are the rikishi like Tamaasuka who managed a 30% win rate yet still participated in almost 100 bouts. 87.30 Hakuho 660-96 86.67 Asashoryu 13-2 80.00 Wakatakakage 4-1 70.90 Harumafuji 441-181 66.71 Kisenosato 469-234 66.44 Kakuryu 491-248 66.30 Baruto 179-91 61.07 Takakeisho 149-95 58.76 Goeido 473-332 57.68 Mitakeumi 214-157 57.48 Kaio 73-54 56.67 Iwakiyama 17-13 56.25 Ura 27-21 56.19 Asanoyama 118-92 55.94 Takayasu 391-308 55.56 Tomokaze 35-28 55.36 Kotoshogiku 470-379 55.00 Abi 99-81 55.00 Enho 33-27 54.66 Kotooshu 176-146 53.66 Onosho 110-95 53.38 Hokutofuji 150-131 53.33 Tokusegawa 48-42 53.33 Tsurugisho 16-14 53.14 Terunofuji 169-149 52.86 Ichinojo 231-206 52.83 Osunaarashi 112-100 51.67 Meisei 62-58 51.23 Tochiozan 439-418 50.62 Tochinoshin 367-358 50.50 Aoiyama 355-348 50.48 Endo 265-260 50.08 Myogiryu 331-330 50.00 Kotomitsuki 19-19 49.72 Shodai 179-181 49.66 Homasho 148-150 49.21 Okinoumi 405-418 48.89 Ryuden 88-92 48.89 Kotokasuga 22-23 48.89 Takanosho 22-23 48.86 Yoshikaze 406-425 48.57 Hakuba 51-54 48.57 Mokonami 51-54 48.33 Shimanoumi 29-31 48.10 Tamawashi 404-436 48.00 Terutsuyoshi 36-39 47.83 Daieisho 165-180 47.78 Chiyotairyu 280-306 47.72 Aminishiki 283-310 47.65 Toyonoshima 274-301 47.63 Kotoyuki 201-221 47.53 Chiyootori 125-138 47.50 Takarafuji 342-378 47.22 Sokokurai 170-190 47.22 Wakakoyu 85-95 47.14 Takanoiwa 140-157 47.12 Chiyonokuni 147-165 47.10 Shohozan 325-365 47.08 Kaisei 330-371 46.99 Ikioi 289-326 46.97 Sadanoumi 209-236 46.41 Masunoyama 84-97 46.06 Kagayaki 152-178 45.95 Toyohibiki 255-300 45.95 Kyokutaisei 17-20 45.89 Takekaze 335-395 45.56 Kitataiki 246-294 45.49 Chiyoshoma 116-139 45.36 Kyokushuho 127-153 45.33 Ishiura 102-123 45.16 Kyokutenho 224-272 45.00 Tokitenku 207-253 44.81 Gagamaru 242-298 44.62 Daido 87-108 44.56 Daishomaru 127-158 44.56 Shotenro 127-158 44.55 Aran 147-183 44.37 Arawashi 138-173 44.27 Amuru 58-73 44.19 Asasekiryu 114-144 44.00 Chiyomaru 132-168 43.93 Wakanosato 141-180 43.81 Nishikigi 138-177 43.81 Kotoeko 46-59 43.75 Fujiazuma 105-135 43.75 Miyabiyama 105-135 43.70 Takamisakari 59-76 43.61 Tokushoryu 157-203 43.59 Tosayutaka 68-88 43.33 Kimurayama 65-85 43.33 Daiamami 39-51 43.19 Jokoryu 92-121 42.86 Shimotori 45-60 42.70 Yutakayama 76-102 42.22 Seiro 19-26 41.67 Azumaryu 25-35 41.67 Yago 25-35 41.52 Sadanofuji 137-193 40.95 Kagamio 43-62 40.95 Tochinonada 43-62 40.46 Tochinowaka 106-156 40.29 Homarefuji 56-83 40.00 Daishoho 30-45 40.00 Koryu 30-45 40.00 Tamanoshima 18-27 40.00 Kitaharima 6-9 39.76 Sagatsukasa 33-50 39.66 Asahisho 23-35 38.46 Chiyoo 10-16 38.46 Kimikaze 5-8 38.36 Hokutoriki 28-45 37.78 Kokkai 51-84 37.62 Tenkaiho 38-63 36.67 Satoyama 22-38 36.67 Toyozakura 11-19 35.56 Kasugao 16-29 34.67 Kakizoe 26-49 34.67 Takanoyama 26-49 34.44 Hidenoumi 31-59 33.33 Amakaze 5-10 33.33 Nionoumi 5-10 33.33 Oiwato 5-10 30.67 Bushuyama 23-52 30.48 Tamaasuka 32-73 26.67 Takagenji 8-22 26.67 Akiseyama 4-11 26.67 Kyokunankai 4-11 26.67 Sotairyu 4-11 26.67 Tsurugidake 4-11 24.44 Yoshiazuma 11-34 22.22 Hochiyama 10-35 20.00 Daikiho 3-12 13.33 Tosanoumi 2-13 0.00 Chiyotaikai 0-4

    "Watching Film" on sumo rivals

    Also thanks to all those people who sync up the youtube videos to sumodb listings would be another excellent resource (ignoring that most of the 2010s got blapped by the NSK recently)
