Bench Sumo news

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
 
Here is the real new bench banzuke for July 2021. It was put together by Flohru, Sakura and Jejima, under the ever-watchful eyes of Asashosakari, Ekigozan, Kaiomitsuki and Kintamayama.
 
With the intai of the Yokozuna at the top of the banzuke, an 'extra space' has been created to the benefit of most players. Flohru has accepted the rijicho's invitation to restart the game at the ms10W rank (giving kosho Aminoumi a surprise mini promotion.) Speaking of Aminoumi, she has accepted her invitation to join the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council, replacing Sakura, who has given up her seat due to a conflict of interests with her new role on the banzuke making committee.
 
Anyway, more good luck than usual, with a few tiny pockets of slight bad luck, so I think most players will be pleased with their new ranks.
 
Here it is!

Hi all,
 
There is less than 3 days left until the entry deadline. Yes, this basho is starting much earlier in the month than normal! Go to <http://benchsumo.sumogames.de/> to make your picks, before it is too late.
 
Meanwhile...
 
Here are the possible milestones for the July basho 2021. 
 
Many thanks to Takanorappa and his Bench Sumo stat page where are the good stuff can be mined -->  <http://www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm>
 
There are nine parts.
 
1. The players at a new career high rank.
 
2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in July.
 
3. Players who have a chance (even if very remote) of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in  July.  
 
4. The current  top 20 leaderboard for the *all-time* total number of wins.
 
5. The current top 20 leaderboard for the highest win percentage for *active* players.
 
6. The top 20 biggest earners from the May 2021 basho.
 
7. The top 20 biggest earners of all time.
 
8. The top 20 kensho winners for the May 2021 basho.  (Kensho are sponsorships for bouts)
 
9. The top 20 biggest kensho winners of all time.
 
Enjoy!

Top 20 winningest players of all-time
No changes among the top 10. Doitsuyama has dropped a further place. Metzinowaka wants 15th place all to himself - and Marushiki drops to 16th. Konosato and Taka switch places - again (they did this last basho too.)

Hi everyone!

Here is the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2021 after the July 2021 basho.  This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from September 2020 to July 2021.

It reads like this.....

Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after May 2021) - Rank on the July 2021 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points change from after July 2021 - basically the points gained for July 2021 minus the points gained in July 2020).

Norizo remains on top.  chishafuwaku has made a big climb into the Sanyaku level ranks.

Hi everyone,
 
Marushiki of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council has sent me the following missive....
 
********************************************************
Venerable Rijicho. 
 
The BSYDC has met and at length discussed the performance of Taka, and the possibility of promotion to Yokozuna going into September.
 
We would like to congratulate him on an outstanding performance this Basho and his Jun-Yusho.  A very commendable performance for a prospective Yokozuna. 
 
Given his MK last Basho, most of the esteemed members of the BSYDC, have thought 10 or more wins would be needed.  Given that he has won 1 Yusho in the Makuuchi division, back in 2019, and a Jun-Yusho for the Nagoya 2021.  Should he make Yusho or Jun-Yusho as per the Rules Page: which states. 
 
The general guidelines are that the normal minimum requirement for promotion should be two consecutive Jun-Yushos, whilst at the rank of Ozeki (provided that they have previously won a Makunouchi Yusho.)
 
 
If the esteemed Taka can manage a minimum of 10, and the minimum requirement as per stated ruling, then Promotion can be seriously considered.  Should Yusho or Jun-Yusho not be achieved then, we will reconvene and consider the promotion again after the September Basho. 
 
We offer Taka our sincere encouragement and know he will do his best. 
 
Marushiki (Chair BSYDC)
********************************************************
So, September will be a tsuna-tori basho for Ozeki Taka.
 
I wish him well!  Bench Sumo is always better when a Yokozuna heads the top of the banzuke.

Hi all,

Here is the new banzuke for September 2021, crafted by Flohru, Sakura and Jejima, under the watchful eyes of Kintamayama, Ekigozan, Asashosakari and Kaiomitsuki.

It was mostly straight forward. There are pockets of good luck, here and there, with the odd sprinkling of bad luck. I think that there is more good luck going around than bad, which is nice.

Enjoy!

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Here are the possible milestones for the September basho 2021. 
 
Many thanks to Takanorappa and his Bench Sumo stat page where are the good stuff can be mined -->  <http://www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm>
 
There are nine parts.
 
1. The players at a new career high rank.
 
2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in September.
 
3. Players who have a chance (even if very remote) of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in September.  
 
4. The current  top 20 leaderboard for the *all-time* total number of wins.
 
5. The current top 20 leaderboard for the highest win percentage for *active* players.
 
6. The top 20 biggest earners from the July 2021 basho.
 
7. The top 20 biggest earners of all time.
 
8. The top 20 kensho winners for the July 2021 basho.  (Kensho are sponsorships for bouts)
 
9. The top 20 biggest kensho winners of all time.
 
Enjoy!

Hi everyone!

Here is the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2021 after the September 2021 basho.  This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from November 2020 to September 2021.

It reads like this.....

Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after July 2021) - Rank on the September 2021 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points change from after September 2021 - basically the points gained for September 2021 minus the points gained in September 2020).

Damimonay takes a sizeable lead going into the final basho of the year - and the final basho that counts towards the year's end prize.  Metzinowaka is the only player to enter the top ten.

 
The biggest climber is tainosen with 13 positions (Joaoiyama came close with 12.)
 
aoyume makes a new entry directly at Juryo level. (Usually new entries start off at Makushita level.)
 
Just one more basho to go!

Hi everyone,
 
I have received the following missive from the Chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council, Marushiki.
 
*****************************************************************
Venerable Rijicho. 
 
The YDC has met to discuss the Aki Basho, and the performance of our Yokozuna hopeful, Taka.   It was a difficult tournament for a lot of the Bench Rikishi, and with a number of real rikishi who pulled out, that threatened the balance of a few teams who had them. 
 
We were impressed with the esteemed Taka's final score, and his Jun-Yusho.  
 
After much consideration, and much meditation in our hot tub, be were agreed that Promotion of Taka to Yokozuna should be offered, along with our congratulations. 
 
We look forward to the next Basho to see how Taka continues with his excellent form.   And will be keeping an eagle eye out on all the others, for our next potential Yokozuna.  
 
Now it is time for the BSYDC, to resume our meditations....  
 
Marushiki, Chair BSYDC
*****************************************************************
Congratulations to Yokozuna Taka on his promotion!

@Taka, @Bill

Hi everyone,

 
The banzuke making committee has been working behind the scenes. After some discussion, we have decided to make another major promotion, to go along with Taka's promotion to Yokozuna (we are still awaiting his Yokozuna acceptance speech, as is traditional in this game. Hint, hint ;-))
 
Bill has had the following records over the past three bashos....
 
May -  S1E, 11-4
July - S1W, 9-6
September - S1W, 9-6
 
He is one win short of the usual guidelines, but has been fighting at Sekiwake (with KKs in all five of them) since January of this year, prior to which he was ranked as an Ozeki. 
 
Therefore, with the promotion of Taka to Yokozuna, and with the remaining Ozeki (Norizo) going into November as a kadoban Ozeki, the banzuke making committee has followed the guidelines, and relaxed the requirements marginally to allow for this promotion.  It will be Bill's second stint at the rank of Ozeki. His first one lasted for ten bashos.  We wish him luck - and hope that he will also have prepared a little speech for his repromotion.

Hi everyone,

Here is the new banzuke for November 2021. It was put together by Flohru, Sakura and Jejima, whilst being overseen by Kintamayama, Ekigozan, Asashosakari and Kaiomitsuki. Mostly good luck this time around - but a few sprinklings of bad luck, so keep your fingers crossed.

It's really nice have a Yokozuna atop the banzuke once more.

Enjoy!

I'll post my Yokozuna acceptance speech here.

Please feel free to re-post it on the benchsumo group where I do of course read along and keep up, but haven't been signed in a long time and I am unable to do so right now. Maybe I'll need to sign up again!

 

Yokozuna promotion acceptance speech

Dear BSYDC and fellow Bench Sumo gamers

 

I humbly accept the promotion and will do my best to honor the rank.

It's also very appropriate for me to echo many other newly promoted Yokozuna in saying that this promotion will strengthen my sumo spirit.

In fact it is not wrong to say that it will have helped keeping my bench-sumo career as well as my whole sumo-gaming career alive.

Retirement or at the very least a prolonged break from sumo-gaming has been looming larger and larger recently but becoming Yokozuna must serve as powerful motivation.

The short term goal is to yusho as Yokozuna. I've been victorious across divisions, but the close calls and near misses lately have been frustrating. Winning as Yokozuna will more than make up for it!

When it comes to the lifespan of a Yokozuna and era, I did some quick research, and thanks to my predecessor Flohru, who talked about it in his promotion speech, and I quote:  "Looking at the careers of my predecessors, however, caused me some kind of shock: As none of those Bench legends managed to last more than 9 basho (average time of duration: just 6.4 basho!)"

it is clear that the future is not at all guaranteed and all I can do is gambarize one day at a time.

I also want to thank all involved in Bench Sumo especially those running the game, and finally if it's at all appropriate I wish to dedicate this newest bench sumo Yokozuna title to those great people who were involved and did so much for the game, who are not with us anymore.

 

Thanks again

Yokozuna Taka

And look at Norizo's last win/loss records as Ozeki. Mean greater then 1 is a great achievement! ;-)

Congratulations Yokozuna Taka from (not promoted?) ex Yokozuna Kitakachiyama!

Well, if it isn't "Gang up on the Stats Guy" day? ;-)  Looking here, I don't see any issues. 

The problem with that page stems from when I changed how I counted Koshos/Kyujos.  It messed with the counts everywhere.  I, also, had a bad range in the formula for Norizo's tallies.  You see, the Bench Ozeki page is one of the few that I have to hand-jam data into.   I've transitioned to straight DB queries for almost everything else.  With over 60 stats pages, it's tough to check everything.  Heck it's a few hours work to just tabulate it all. The manual manipulation of the Ozeki page is because it mimics Gaijingai's original Ozeki stats posts on the BS groups site, and there is no easy way to get the data in that format, otherwise.

BTW - All stats have been updated with 2021 Aki numbers (I think)

Here are the possible milestones for the November basho 2021. 
 
Many thanks to Takanorappa and his Bench Sumo stat page where are the good stuff can be mined -->  <http://www.takanorappa.com/ichimons.htm>
 
There are nine parts.
 
1. The players at a new career high rank.
2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in November.
3. Players who have a chance (even if very remote) of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in  November  .  
4. The current  top 20 leaderboard for the *all-time* total number of wins.
5. The current top 20 leaderboard for the highest win percentage for *active* players.
6. The top 20 biggest earners from the September 2021 basho.
7. The top 20 biggest earners of all time.
8. The top 20 kensho winners for the  September  2021 basho.  (Kensho are sponsorships for bouts)
9. The top 20 biggest kensho winners of all time.
 
Enjoy!

Top 20 winningest players of all-time
As usual, no change in order amongst the top ten. But, I think we have an interesting race going into 2022, as to which player will be the first to claim 1000 career victories.

Top 20 active players with the highest winning percentage
Asaspedroryu makes the usual entry at number one, for any player getting double digit wins in their debut basho. I think Joaoiyama is very impressive at (joint) #2 on this list.

Top 20 kensho winners of all time
Flohru remains on top.....  but I have a feeling that Gaijingai might become the new career leader of kenshos after the November basho. Taka continues to climb up the kensho ranks. Now that he is a shin-Yokozuna, it is the time to make hay while the sun shines. He could easily climb a further two positions after the upcoming basho.
