Turn The Tide - Banzuke Kyushu 2016

Recommended Posts

With only one 8-7 and one 7-8 around, I expected the task to craft a banzuke nightmarish to say the least. But as I tried multiplying wins instead of adding, everything clicked into place. For Makuuchi the number of wins is simply doubled, with an additional +1 in Juryo and below. (This is the first time the converted results are added for clarification - I think I'll continue that feature.)

Two big issues: One, pandaazuma's converted result is just enough to return the "easy way" - welcome back once more, Ozeki! B-)

And then there is the story about Ozeki Haidouzo. In Natsu, he was tied for the yusho with 12 wins at Sekiwake. In Nagoya, he was tied for the yusho with 8 wins (converted to 10) at Sekiwake again, earning a promotion to Ozeki. Now he got the jun-yusho as the only player with 7 wins (converted to 14), which obviously raises the tsuna question.

After weighing all pros and cons, which really wasn't easy, I see an exceptionally strong performance, but ultimately I decided against it, because a) this is only his first basho as Ozeki, b) the "Kise factor" (stringing together "only" jun-yushos), and c) taking all difficulties into account for this basho, a 7-8 result doesn't cry "Yokozuna!" loud enough in the end.

I really hope for Haidouzo to have another strong appearance next basho to squish all doubts!

While I am confident that I should continue to impress in November, I must say, as far as the "Kise factor" goes, I did yusho in January.

But, indeed, the yusho was not part of the yokozuna run, and I can't deny your other factors, and it's entirely your call, and I'm not complaining--just stating my case :)

(Namely, that I have one more yusho than Kise!  And recently!)

Thanks for running such a wonderful game.

Senkoho left nothing to chance on Senshuraku and went with the obvious pick to keep all pursuers at bay and take the yusho  - congratulations!

Yusho:
M12w Senkoho (10-5) (Yushowinner...)

Thank you! This game has often been my nightmare, so I'm even more thrilled with this Yusho :)
