    Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - 130 entries

    We agree on the Juryo placements except for the order of Akua and Shimanoumi FWIW.

    Seeing the solution you guys went with, that's the one I'm questioning the most. Maybe they'll depart from what they did last time and just leave Takarafuji in place.

    Very similar to mine (now posted over at Tachiai) except for M5-M7 and some rearrangements at M14 and below.

    Yusho or Rank?

    Newbie question, but what are the promotion thresholds?

    Yusho or Rank?

    So, assuming he never does, which seems safe, that's one record he'll hold. The previous record-holder quit after 22 Jonokuchi basho.

    Yusho or Rank?

    At his current pace, it'll also take him almost 18 years to break Kyokutenho's record for most career losses.

    Yusho or Rank?

    Top 10 is within easy reach in another couple of years; to go higher, he'll really have to commit to the bit.

    Yusho or Rank?

    Somewhat to my surprise, he is nowhere near the record for most basho in Jonokuchi. While his 29 basho and counting have him in 18th place, the guy at the top has a whopping 110, and has been toiling in the lowest division since 1995, with occasional forays into the heights of Jonidan.

    Yusho or Rank?

    That's a really interesting point; it hadn't occurred to me that Daieisho's shin-Sekiwake appearance was such a rare event. Even Komusubi debuts are less frequent than I would have guessed: since Mitakeumi 4 years ago, we've only had Onosho, Endo, Hokutofuji, Abi, and Ryuden, among those who haven't gone higher.

    New Juryo- November 2020

    And having 6 or more promotions is fairly rare, especially excluding the scandal-associated weirdness of 2010 and 2011.

    New Juryo- November 2020

    Staying in makushita after a 4-3 at Ms5 is hardly a snub.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    I'd guess he'll stay where he was, strictly based on the Fujiazuma's apparent non-demotion as inferred from the number of promotions. EDIT: Just saw the post above that everyone in the heya keeps their banzuke slot.

    Here's a guess at the November Makushita joi: Daishoho, Naya, Kotodaigo, Kitaharima, Shiraishi, Terasawa, Yago, Bushozan, Chiyoarashi, Kotokuzan. Would love to hear others' thoughts.

    Trivia bits

    Fair enough, career high would be a great addition IMHO.

    Trivia bits

    I really wish this would be fixed; it would be a much more useful feature if it actually gave the highest career rank.

    Nice to see the current/future Ozeki trio leading.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Excellent analysis. Presumably his tenure in seven tournaments at the rank so far, including two kadobans and one demotion to sekiwake, plus the most recent 7-8 and 8-4-3 results, would argue against promotion, but let's see him pull off a strong yusho first.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Probably Takayasu. One more win from one rank lower, plus his past record in san'yaku.

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

    According to the source of all knowledge, Wikipedia, "A wrestler at the rank of sekiwake will be considered for promotion if he has achieved a total of at least 33 wins over the three most recent tournaments, including ten or more wins in the tournament just completed." That's also the way I've always heard the guidelines stated. Of course, the next sentence in that article beings with "Promotion is discretionary and there are no hard-and-fast rules..."

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

    I believe double-digits in the third basho of the run is an absolute requirement; that's certainly been true historically in the 6-basho era.

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

    According the the glossary, the term is Ozewake.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    My only point is that no run of 33 wins over 3 basho, all at Sekiwake, all kachi-koshi, has ever failed to earn promotion, with the exception of Miyabiyama's, who (1) was a former Ozeki and (2) only got 9 wins in the final basho. Quite a few of the runs started with 8 or 9 wins, and one had 8 in the middle basho. Do I want Mitakeumi to pull it off? Yes. Do I have faith? Not so much.

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

    Kotonishiki is the record-holder with 34 "junior" san'yaku appearances, Kaio was second with 32. Among recent rikishi who didn't make Ozeki, Tochiozan had 25. Full list here.
