    Aki banzuke trivia

    I don't know if this was posted elsewhere but I just realized that Asanoyama and Ishiura probably can't both get promoted back to Juryo in a single shot, which feels like bad luck for Ishiura, who competed in his last match at a career high rank of M5.

    GTB invite- Aki 2022 - RESULTS!!

    oops, yes, they divide your score by the average and that's this month's contribution to your rolling average (basically something like 100% of the last score + 90% of the score before it + 80% + 70% + 60% + 50% of the one ten months ago)

    GTB invite- Aki 2022 - RESULTS!!

    I mean the weight is the weight. A point is worth more (if the average is lower) than a point in "easier" banzukes. To the comment by sumo spiffy (nice top 20 finish btw), no, it's probably not a good/desired thing to have more weight on chaotic decisions by the committee. But it is an amusing ranking artifact that perhaps is a faithful representation of the chaos in the banzuke itself.

    GTB invite- Aki 2022 - RESULTS!!

    Fun fact - assuming that the average score of all GTB participants is going to be historically low, then the algorithm for computing GTB overall scores (past 6 tournaments) will weight this tournament disproportionately highly (the denominator is the average score of all participants).

    Lower division celebs results

    Was Hiradoumi ever a lower division celeb? He was 5-2 at Ms12 in the first makushita tournament I followed (yes, the Abi comeback / the start of Nattosumo d3 videos). I was vaguely a supporter but never guessed he'd graduate out of Juryo before most of them did.

    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    I see that just for fun they went ahead and adopted the heuristic I would have endorsed in the July banzuke with 3 and 3. Well at any rate this is my first official GTB kyujo just when I was about to have my 6th (or 7th) submission. Might as well just submit the banzuke's I agree with for the next year as opposed to the ones I expect them to use. EDIT: oh boy, so in the 12 day tournament where Tobizaru finished 8-4 and Kotonowaka pulled out 2 days early at 7-3, we were forced to promoted Tobizaru ahead of Kotonowaka by virtue of the fact that Tobi would have finished above a .500 win percentage in a hypothetical 15 day competition. good application of math and logic!

    Did anyone catch Netsuzakura salvaging KK in Sumo Game from an 0-6 start?

    Banzuke for Nagoya 2022

    I still feel worse for Shiden though.

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Lastly gotta close the loop on the winners' bracket.

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Here's a summary of all the 6-1 runs not listed above (excluding Kitaharima's runnerup finish to Oshoma). Obviously many of the matchups I forecasted in earlier brackets never came to fruition.

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Well, here is the setup for two final day 6-1 runs on opposite ends of Makushita (both of which can be potentially denied by non-Makushita wrestlers). Notice that the winners of course are done - they do not compete against each other :)
