Banzuke Surfing Haru 2014 (5th Wave)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

this is to invite you to participate in Banzuke Surfing in the upcoming basho.

The rules are very simple.

Banzuke Surfing is run in several waves, with a new wave starting every year.

The goal is to move up the banzuke as far and fast as possible. You do so by temporarily "adopting" one or more rikishi at a given banzuke position. If your rikishi moves up the banzuke, so will you, if the rikishi moves down by getting MK, so will you (at least, if all your picked rikishi move down). If your rikishi goes intai, you will get his last position next time. In the basho after the current one you will be taking the banzuke position of the best-placed rikishi you've picked this time.

If your name appears on the list below, you have already participated. The column "Allowed Picks" shows you which rikishi of the banzuke you are allowed to pick next basho. If you are participating for the first time, you are allowed to pick any of the rikishi in the bottom 32 of the banzuke (as indicated below).

The rikishi that you are allowed to pick are all rikishi below your last (or most successful) pick. So generally, you cannot pick the same rikishi twice. An exception is if your rikishi drops into the last 32 of the banzuke or goes banzuke-gai. In this case, of course, you can pick any of the bottom 32 rikishi (just like a new player).

During your entire career of a given wave you can use up to three so-called jokers (indicated by the number of asterisks behind your name). Jokers are additional rikishi you can pick. In addition to the regular rikishi you pick for a basho, you can use as many jokers as you've still left. E.g., at the beginning of a wave you could pick four rikishi instead of one (regular + all jokers). As a consequence, the most successful one of these four will determine your new banzuke position. But on the downside this would mean that you don't have any jokers left for later bashos. So pick jokers wisely, three isn't much for a wave that might run for much more than a year.

Deadline is shonichi 8 AM JST.

All new players are allowed to pick Jk4w Buken and below.

I can't remember if the asterisks indicate jokers used or jokers remaining. If I have jokers left, I'll use one for ...

Standings after day 6:

Kotoyuki seemed to be a risky pick but he served Kaiowaka well so far. Lots of unbeaten surf boards below.

Kotoyuki turned a 5-1 into a 5-5 and makes life interesting for Kaiowaka. There are still some undefeated surf boards in lower Makushita.

Haru results and Natsu rank estimates:

It's quite murky whether Kaiowaka will indeed fall behind the Ichinojo train, but it looks likely that Holleshoryu droned into first place.

So you estimate that Tochinoshin with a 7-0 Yusho will jump from Ms55 to Ms6 while Kawanari with a 6-1 record 'only' from Ms46 to Ms19 ? Though I notice there's something wrong with the table, as I didn't pick Shineiyama.

I don't put any thoughts into the estimates. I'm just using the promotion table Randomitsuki gave me ages ago.

It doesn't matter all that much anyway - it's the next official banzuke that counts.

But you're right, I messed up the results pretty badly below Juryo - thanks for noticing!

Here's the corrected results:
