  1. This is a nightmare. Maybe I'll go for another last minute entry after all.

    Sumo Tipping, Hatsu 2022

    The results are in: https://dankonstantinos.pythonanywhere.com/sumo/15/results. I won't waffle on with a massive post just to repeat what's there. Thank you all for playing! Keen to hear any feedback you may have to keep improving this little game.

    11-4 is a perfectly respectable yokozuna score, and as another forum member pointed out, this is the first basho since Kyushu 2019 that Terunofuji hasn't been Champion or Runner-Up. Very premature statement, especially since the talk is of a calf injury (which visibly hindered his last few days). No reason to believe he won't be back as the force for Haru.

    I love me some Terunofuji, but I'm very happy with this result. There can be no arguing with Ozeki Mitakeumi after this. Brilliant basho, great matches and drama the whole way through. May it continue all year!

    Spectacular match in Kotonowaka vs. Abi. The young bloke can hold his head up high after that effort, very nearly had him.

    Mitakeumi Ozeki Prospects

    Haha far out man. I was struggling with formatting so much(edited the post about 5 times just so the table would display properly) I didn't even notice this. And I'm not going to be in a position to fix it anytime soon.

    Mitakeumi Ozeki Prospects

    I just don't see how it doesn't happen at this point. His worst case scenario for this tournament is 12-3 D, being on top of the leaderboard the entire way and defeating an incumbent ozeki. He is clearly, CLEARLY, at least on par with the current ozeki. Further, promotion at 32 wins has been done 9 times in the modern era, including the relatively recent examples of Kisenosato, Goeido, Asanoyama and Shodai. If Mitakeumi lost tomorrow, his run would fit in seemlessly with those other promotees at 32 wins, as we see below: Two runs (Goeido and Shodai) include an 8-7. Shodai also has a fusensho in his 11-4. Every run contains at least 1 jun-yusho, with only Shodai earning a yusho. The NSK would be looking a gift horse in the mouth if they don't promote Mitakeumi now.

    I recognise how gingerly Terunofuji stepped off the dohyo from my own knee troubles going downstairs. He's not in a good way.

    Mitakeumi Ozeki Prospects

    Given Abi's disciplinary history I would be stunned if they promoted him with anything other than 33 wins over 3 basho, all ranked in junior sanyaku. Even then, I expect they'd make him do more, given they had to demote (suspend) an ozeki for the same indiscretion he was punished for. He has a (deservedly) uphill battle to ozeki IMO. Mitakeumi on the other hand, just got a slightly easier path. Murray yesterday and the English announcer today (I can't remember who it was) seemed to think it wouldn't happen no matter how this basho finishes, and they'd know better than I do. I won't again go into all the reasons I think he should be promoted, but now I have pause as to whether it will actually happen. Wouldn't be the first thime I thought something was common sense and the NSK disagreed, and in fairness, what do I know?

    Yeah I caught this immediately after posting and was hoping to get away with a sneaky edit. I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you meddling similar timezone forum users!

    I'm very happy for Mitakeumi, rooting for him big time.

    Man, the Ishiura v. Oho bout made me dizzy.

    Mitakeumi Ozeki Prospects

    I could see them maybe counting M6 if it were an ozeki + yokozuna defeating 13-2 yusho, but that's what it would take imo.

    Excitement aside, very concerning to see the Yokozuna reach for his knee like that. I hope it's nothing major.
