Kensho Kyushu 2016

Recommended Posts

I don't have full kensho data this basho, if nobody else takes over from Torquato, I'll post the Nikkan top later on.

It has taken a while to really bear fruit:

On 26.2.2015 at 20:22, Akinomaki said:

Goeido was appointed SHOP-manager-for-a-day at an optician's store and had to wear glasses - for eyesight 1.0.

The shop was close to his hometown and an acquaintance runs it. A CM is planned.

(that must lead to several fixed kensho for Goeido's bouts for Haru)

This basho that store puts 1 kensho on all his 15 bouts - the store went once bankrupt in 2013. So far they only placed  kensho for Haru. Should Goeido get the rope, he might also get to do another day as shop manager. http://www.hochi.co.jp/sports/sumo/20161112-OHT1T50378.html

What's up with the sponsors this basho? 5 kensho for bout between Harumafuji and Kisenosato, seems like an insult...

I have been following the kensho totals this tournament, and have noted two irregularities:

(1) On Day 6, Tamawashi won his bout against Goeido and secured 7 kensho bringing his total up to 40.  Then on Day 7, Tamawashi won against Okinoumi and received 2 kensho on the dohyo, but his total winnings remained at 40 (see records above).  Was this an error by our friends at Nikkansports?

(2) On Day 12, Takarafuji defeated Hokutofuji and received 1 kensho (only one banner paraded around the ring), however, the records show his total from Day 10 (i.e., he lost on Day 11) went up by 2.

Has anyone else noticed these and other irregularities?  Is it a case of sloppy arithmetic, or are winnings in the ring taken away or augmented after a rikishi steps down from his bout?  I have to assume that the JSA provides Japanese newspapers with the kensho winnings...

Nikkan frequently has wrong numbers - the NSK provides the daily torikumi sheets which list the kensho for the day, given to all spectators in the hall (foreigners have to ask to get it, since it's only on the Japanese ones). I presume the papers that publish the data (Nikkan is the only on the net, only Sponichi has the complete kensho standings) have to count them from there. The Morinaga-sho is decided later and gets announced after the dohyo-iri.

For Takarafuji you can see 2 kensho parade on day 12: https://youtu.be/8T0cNyGC8Uo?t=36m35s

They definitely forgot Tamawashi's day 7 kensho: https://youtu.be/4nApOF3-Ez8?t=6m10s

But he got none on day 10 against Kaisei, there the number was corrected: https://youtu.be/8anZKfxONoU?t=20m2s

Ichijiku Kanchou - fig (formed) enema - puts 1 fixed kensho on all of Terunofuji's bouts. A member of the company read about Terunofuji's stomach problems with the story of his loss because of that on day 11 of Haru last year. The company was looking for a rikishi to put a special kensho on - and Terunofuji had the stomach connection - though the opposite, diarrhea. For Natsu basho they started to put 1 fixed kensho on his bouts, and - that basho he won the yusho and the promotion to ozeki. As a sign of gratitude he sent the 13 Ichijiku kensho envelopes he won to the company on a framed banzuke. Then the company president went to the heya to meet him and was very fond of him. Thus the stomach kensho connection continued - the president is very happy about his kachi-koshi and hopes for the next step.

I realize if he had gone 15-0 his schedule would have ended up different. But can you tell how many kensho Endo would have won if he had gone 15-0? I mean he has sponsors who put kensho on all of his matches. How much cash did he leave on the table just from those with his losses?
