    FAWL Invitation - Natsu 2022

    Certainly a weird basho in terms of results and scores. We have a new FAWLer Wakatake who enters with a bang! For the longest time the Gino-sho could be awarded to Athenayama for balanced albeit low-scoring equilibrium. Prizes: Yusho: Wakatake (54 points) Jun-Yusho: Tameiki (53 points) Shukun-sho: Flohru (8 3/3) Gino-sho: Athenayama (25/25) Kanto-sho: Tameiki (1 6/6) Muppet-sho: Not awarded Fus' Award: Tameiki (29 wins) Abudi's Award: Wakatake (30 losses) Shikona Wins Loss 3/3 0/3 6/6 0/6 Points Score Wakatake 24 30 4 1 0 0 54 9-6 Tameiki 29 24 7 1 1 0 53 9-6 Flohru 29 23 8 3 1 0 52 8-7 Athenayama 25 25 7 2 1 0 50 7-8 Torafujii 26 23 6 3 0 0 49 7-8 Kaiowaka 27 20 1 1 0 0 47 6-9 Neko 22 24 3 3 0 0 46 6-9

    FAWL Invitation - Haru 2022

    And finally the Banzuke post Hatsu 2022! As announced above - we conratulate Kaiowaka for his promotion to Ozeki and commiserate with Flohru how had been Yokozuna in the games, at least since 1796. Flohru could earn immediate repromotion with a Yusho at 10-5 or a score of 11-4 or better. Athenayama eked out another KK - but would need a 9-6 JY at a minimum to be considered for Ozeki promotion.

    FAWL Invitation - Haru 2022

    2022 started with the best possible result - the first Yusho of Neko since administering the game - once every 5 years is not a record to be proud of, but you take what you can get. In other news 2022 started exactly how 2021 has ended, a strong performance by Kaiowaka, taking the Jun-Yusho and another MK by our Yokozuna Flohru. As a result we no longer have a Yokozuna but two Ozeki on the Banzuke for Haru Basho. Neko grabs most of the prizes - the Shukun-sho and Kanto-sho as well as the Abudis' Award, with Tameiki taking the Fus'Award (just ahead of Athenayama). Prizes Yusho: Neko (56 points) Jun-Yusho: Kaiowaka (53 points) Shukun-sho: Neko (8 3/3) Gino-sho: Not awarded Kanto-sho: Neko (1 6/6) Muppet-sho: Torafujii (1 0/6) Fus' Award: Tameiki (27 wins) Abudi's Award: Neko (32 losses) Shikona Wins Loss 3/3 0/3 6/6 0/6 Points Score Neko 24 32 8 2 1 0 56 10-5 Kaiowaka 26 27 5 2 0 0 53 9-6 Torafujii 24 28 5 3 1 1 52 8-7 Athenayama 27 24 5 0 0 0 51 8-7 Tameiki 27 21 3 1 0 0 48 7-8 Flohru 26 21 2 2 0 0 47 7-8 Terarno 24 22 2 1 0 0 46 6-9 chishafuwaku 20 22 5 6 0 1 42 5-10

    FAWL Invitation - Hatsu 2022

    And finally the Banzuke. After two MK our Yokozuna Flohru is in danger of being demoted to Ozeki - a KK in Hatsu 2022 is imperative. The FYDC also convened and preemptively dismissed any talks of retirement in case of a MK in January - the FYDC insists that any rank above FAWL Juryo is more than good enough to continue competing. Since the two Yusho of Kaiowaka came off a bad MK, the FODC would like to see a bit more consistency for an Ozeki promotion but hinted that a KK in Hatsu 2022 would most likely do the trick. Similarly, Athenayama's KK kept his Ozeki run alive, but the FODC insists that a Yusho/Jun-Yusho or at least a record of 9-6 or better would be needed to make the jump.

    FAWL Invitation - Hatsu 2022

    Happy New Year everyone! Last year's Kyushu Basho saw the second consecutive Yusho of Kaiowaka and the second consecutive makekoshi of Yokozuna Flohru - what will 2022 bring to us FAWLers? Torafuji fought tooth and nail for his chance at the Yuhso but was edged out by Kaiowaka in a behind-closed-doors Ketteisen. Kaiowaka also takes the Shukun-sho, Kanto-sho and the Fus' Award. If you want to know who's winning - ask Kaiowaka - he won the Fus' Award 4 out of the last 6 basho. If you want to know who's losing, Torafuji may be your best bet - he's won the Abudi Award 3 out of the last 6 basho. Prizes Yusho: Kaiowaka (61 points) Jun-Yusho: Torafujii (61 points) Shukun-sho: Kaiowaka (10 3/3) Gino-sho: Not awarded Kanto-sho: Kaiowaka (3 6/6) Muppet-sho: Tameiki (1 0/6) Fus' Award: Kaiowaka (35 wins) Abudi's Award: Torafujii (31 losses) Complete standings Shikona Wins Loss 3/3 0/3 6/6 0/6 Points Score Kaiowaka 35 26 10 1 3 0 61 9-6 Torafujii 30 31 6 0 1 0 61 9-6 Athenayama 26 31 6 0 0 0 57 8-7 Neko 26 30 5 0 0 0 56 8-7 Terarno 28 26 6 2 1 0 54 7-8 chishafuwaku 26 27 6 2 0 0 53 7-8 Flohru 22 29 6 2 1 0 51 6-9 Tameiki 26 24 5 3 1 1 50 6-9

    FAWL Invitation - Kyushu 2021

    The results better late than never? Our sole Yokozuna might disagree. Kaiowaka clinches his first Yusho since the onset of Covid and Athenayama finishes second - getting successive Jun-Yushos. Is it too early to talk about a FAWL Ozeki for Athenayama? A strong showing in Kyushu might just be enough to tip the scales after a solid string of kachi-koshi performances. Athenayama also takes the Kanto-sho and Shukun-sho., with Kaiowaka claiming the Fus and Terarno the Abudi award. In other major news - this must be the first make-koshi for our sole Yokozuna Flohru since I started administering the game - everyone expects a strong bounce-back in Kyushu. Yusho: Kaiowaka (57 points) Jun-Yusho: Athenayama (54 points) Shukun-sho: Athenayama (8 3/3) Gino-sho: Not awarded Kanto-sho: Athenayama (1 6/6) Muppet-sho: Tameiki (1 0/6) Fus' Award: Kaiowaka (31 wins) Abudi's Award: Terarno (31 losses) Shikona Wins Loss 3/3 0/3 6/6 0/6 Points Score Kaiowaka 31 26 7 1 0 0 57 9-6 chishafuwaku 28 26 5 0 0 0 54 8-7 Athenayama 28 26 8 2 1 0 54 8-7 Neko 29 24 4 1 0 0 53 8-7 Terarno 20 31 4 3 1 0 51 7-8 Torafujii 26 25 2 2 0 0 51 7-8 Flohru 22 26 4 5 0 0 48 6-9 Tameiki 22 23 4 6 0 1 45 5-10

    FAWL Invitation - Aki 2021

    Here are the Natsu Basho results. First of all the biggest upset of the last few bashos - no Yusho or Jun-Yusho for Flohru - will he bounce back with a vengeance? Congratulations on Torafuji for the Yusho - after coming agonizingly close in March - and Athenayama for taking the Jun-Yusho and Shukun-sho. Flohru at least picked up the Kanto-sho as a consolation. I am not sure whether the Muppet-sho is a consolation to Kaiowaka, but he is being asked to kindly report to the earest post office to collect the invaluable statue. Yusho: Torafujii (59 points) Jun-Yusho: Athenayama (57 points) Shukun-sho: Athenayama (9 3/3) Gino-sho: Not awarded Kanto-sho: Flohru (3 6/6) Muppet-sho: Kaiowaka (1 0/6) Fus' Award: Athenayama (32 wins) Abudi's Award: Torafujii (31 losses) Shikona Wins Loss 3/3 0/3 6/6 0/6 Points Score Torafujii 28 31 8 2 3 0 59 10-5 Athenayama 32 25 9 1 3 0 57 9-6 chishafuwaku 28 29 9 1 3 0 57 9-6 Flohru 28 26 8 0 2 0 54 8-7 Neko 26 25 5 4 1 0 51 7-8 Terarno 19 28 6 3 1 0 47 6-9 Kaiowaka 23 22 3 3 1 1 45 5-10 Tameiki 22 21 3 4 1 0 43 4-11
