    Who will be the next rikishi to retire as a sekitori?

    Aoiyama's stuff is definitely "working", much like Akiseyama's. If he keeps going as he is, he may be the first to win by that new kimarite, "oppaidashi"

    Rikishi Status - 2023 Natsu

    I saw two Kawazoe matches earlier in the basho and he could hardly walk back to the hanamichi. Being a true warrior is one thing, but I hope his (maybe somewhat irrational) drive to get to Juryo as fast as possible doesn't cause him any permanent damage.

    Well if Takakeisho can only achieve a HNH, maybe he should work out against Abi before the next basho. He'll be sure to pick up a few pointers.

    John, is this welcome back or are you just passing by?

    I hope this isn't an April Fools Joke (NHK apologizing would be shocking) :-}

    Game 21 Haru Basho 2023

    Well that right there is proof that even a blind nut can get a squirrel. Thank you Profomisakari and Yarimotsu for all your hard work.

    Haru 2023 discussion (results)

    I see comments here as to bashos being boring because there are no "dominant" rikishi and have to strongly disagree. I think the most boring time ever in sumo was during hakuho's "reign". Watching him play with his food and knowing there was no chance of anyone else winning the basho unless he slipped up or "allowed" it to happen was boring. At least now there is no preordained outcome. Now it's the last man standing (even if he's a maegashira 83 West)

    GTB invite-Haru 2023 - 166 entries - line is dead

    I guess this question is for the GTB admin, I did a search but couldn't find any info. I was wondering how the GTB participant's "record" was derived. For instance this past GTB, Chiyonosawa and Hoshotakamoto's records were 15-0 with different amounts of correct guesses (within that the bulls eyes and hits). How are the "records" calculated down to 0-15? Is it like being graded on a bell curve? Just curious, and any info is greatly appreciated.

    Well his last name IS "Sumo" How can you get any bigger?

    GTB invitation- Kyushu 2022- Results!!

    I got the last cream-filled donut but someone had squeezed all the cream out of it. It was very unsatisfying, much like my present GTB picks. I mean, 4 sekiwake, 3 komusubi, no ozeki, half a yokozuna. What's this sumo world coming to? We keep going like this, instead of hiramaku basho winners, will have a juryo ranked rikishi winning makuuchi...

    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    Sometimes you eat the bear, so times it bearly eats you. This time the bear chewed me up, spit me out, and then the stomped all over the pieces that were left. That must have been a fun (drunken) night in the izakaya where they drew up that mess. Either that or they wore a blindfold and threw darts at a wall (probably the same izakaya) with the shikonas on it to make the picks.

    Preparations of the Y/O Aki 2022

    So Moti-san, are you saying that "bearly" is the new "properly".
