    GTB Aki Basho 2019 - 95 entries , 3 hours to go..

    I thought it was fairly straightforward this time, so I'll probably finish last.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    So what's the deal with Onosho (and airline food... ok no)? The guy showed great potential in 2017, got injured, and since then has been meandering in the middle of makuuchi and pretty underwhelming to say the least. Did he come back too early from injury, or was it just a lucky first run and he's just where he should be now?

    Kensho Nagoya 2019

    I was very surprised by the small stack for the Hakuho match on day 5 (only nine apparently).

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Takayasu is always like "yeah, I won, whatever", so nothing out of the ordinary for him. Kak's face was priceless though.

    GTB Nagoya Basho 2019-results too!

    Maybe I won't do that badly after all.

    That sucked so much ass. At least the top 7 will give me some points, but I might as well just have picked up the rest at random and it would have made more sense frankly.

    Well it's pretty horrendous this time (not that the last two were easy or anything), so people sure will take their time to come up with something that isn't complete mayhem.

    Promotion Discussion thread - Natsu 2019

    To me, Mitakeumi-Asanoyama at senshuraku was very much the match to decide who's gonna be sekiwake east and west for Nagoya. I mean, I kinda suck at GTB so take it with a Terutsuyoshi level pinch of salt.

    Pretty much yeah (and damn you for stealing my "joke").

    Well, that horrendous shinpan call was the equivalent of Vince McMahon yelling in Michael Cole's headset because he said hospital instead of local medical facility. Also Trump is coming in a few days so better show him something he might actually understand like ref bumps and ridiculous calls.

    Changes to the Kadoban System?

    Once every year and once in the last twelve months would be a good start. But then you have guys like Ikioi who wouldn't use kosho anyway because THE STREAK or "I'll bring shame to my family/fans/whatever for the next hundred years if I even dare".

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    You know what they say: better to shorten your career to keep some streak alive as an anonymous Ms/Sd than take some time off to heal up. In all seriousness, is there any kind of incentive for him to keep going besides bragging rights and pride?

    GTB Natsu May 2019-invitation and final results

    Did slightly better this time, but still went down one rank though.

    GTB Natsu May 2019-invitation and final results

    I have little to no confidence about the bottom five ranks (what a shocker), but I think it's balanced overall with maybe one guy I underdemoted quite badly, although it was that or overpromoting/underdemoting a bunch of other guys.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Things are slowly getting clearer at least. Tochinoshin's days as an ozeki are numbered after another quick loss today, Tamawashi's ozeki run is pretty much done already (to be fair, he had a meh start at Hatsu before winning the yusho, but still) and... random non-henka by Ichinojo because he forgot who he was for a second there I suppose.
