    Itachiyama and Holleshoryu were also in the mix around those ranks, tough calls. On another note, in hatsu i'm going to be on that sweet M17 spot...

    UDH Kyushu (?) Basho 2020

    If i remember correctly i had placed high Kagayaki, Okinoumi, Myogiryu, Takarafuji and Kotoeko was also in the squad i think. All of them had terrible second weeks. I actually thought Mitakeumi would do double digit wins, silly me.

    Turn The Tide - Banzuke November 2020

    I was really gunning for this after day 12, on the last day i had to make very hard picks to match the tie factor while hoping for the top 3 to lose, i'm very happy i did! Thank you Jakusotsu, Kashunowaka, Chelseayama and Adonishiki, it was a fun basho to play.

    UDH Kyushu (?) Basho 2020

    I can't believe i went from 56th 1-14 on day 7 to 15th 11-4 on day 14, still with chances of getting top10!

    He went full on for the mawashi on the torinaoshi, no playing around with Onosho again. Indeed he needed that to wake up for the basho.

    Favorite TV Series

    I love the controversy and fantasy, made me very interested in the piracy times while still sticking to my mind being a creative series.

    Anyone into Black Sails? Very underrated, one of my all time favorites.

    I wasn't expecting to jump all the way up to J4, i might actually reach maegashira next basho. My gaming results were overall average but getting the bench makushita yusho made it all worth it in my eyes.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    If rikishi do nothing about how their health is being trated by the NSK/YDC then nothing will be done for them, something has to spark the fire.

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

    Perfection is rare and temporary, this phase of sumo which rikishi are still finding themselves out before Hakuho retires is also temporary so i have no worries about the future.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Aki Basho

    This Terunofuji decision to go kyujo is really smart indeed and in the future i would love to see more rikishi do kyujo for health, the long run is way more worth it and certain.

    Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Good basho in some games and terrible in others but still in yusho races. Not bad first year commited to games, just looking for SB masters points and climbing the rankings. Dailies Chain - Out on day 3. Odd - Out on day 10... let's just say i'm still figuring the game out. ISP - 5-6 at 83rd, seems like i'll be hanging in makushita for some time. SG - 6-5 feeling good about the next days. BS - 9-2 tied for the lead at ms2, Juryo at reach finally! S4 - 4-7 at 50th, start of the basho broke my back. TTT - 4-7 at 47th, desiny? Toto - 6-5, getting the hang of it. DST - tied 3rd at M8, becoming one of my favorite games. Pre-Basho JG – 46th, i picked Oki. POG - 7th at J37 with a good team. OBG - 25th at ms6, a KK will make me happy. UDH - 17th at M8, i trust my squad to lose a lot until the end of the basho. TH - shared 6th at M15, solid squad with multiple possible 10+ wins on high points. RS - 51, only hoping for KK. SCS - 55th at J1, terrible pick and point placements. S-O - 36th, after last basho shameful performance all i want is KK.

    Former Takanofuji activities

    He is training with Enson Inoue who is a legend, i think he might do better than the others who attempted to cross the bridge.

    The rikishi who would do good in mma would be the ones that are good with harite and kachiage, mainly harite, take a look at Bas Rutten in pancrase, too bad the kyokai doesn't encourage these techniques. Kyokudozan and Hakuho would be the best representatives. Fun fact, Lyoto Machida trained sumo in his youth and his balance is one of the best of all time in mma.

    I was worried that the promoters would put him against an actual professional fighter but it shouldn't be hard for him to beat this guy. Remember what happened to Oosunaarashi? Lost to the worst mma fighter ever

    Shodai is looking huge, seems to me he put some muscle and gained some weight.
