Kensho Kyushu 2018

Recommended Posts

To my disappointment, I lack quite a lot of the old Nikkan banzuke, which is the only source on the web to calculate the nearly full list of kensho totals for the basho (I thought I had saved much more). Fortunately the wayback machine has at least the more recent ones (hopefully saved each basho)

2006-2016 https://web.archive.org/web/20070501000000*/https://www.nikkansports.com/sports/sumo/rank/sm-rank.html

and 2015-2018 https://web.archive.org/web/20151101000000*/https://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/data/sm-ranking.html

I have several older ones back to Aki 2003, but that's about the limit for me so far.

Thanks for trying to answer my hypothetical question, Akinomaki.  I checked the links you provided, but nothing much came up for me.  Admittedly, I am not the most tech-savvy person in the world.  My main observation was that Aoiyama has a shot at the yusho, but thus far he has only accumulated 5 kensho...   Pretty sad.

If Takakeisho now gets paired against Takayasu on day 14 (which would be the standard pairing, Takayasu-Mitakeumi are the highest remaining opponents for the final bout on days 15), he won't be in the last bout - with Goeido out, it's a 2 ozeki rotation and Tochinoshin's turn for the big pack. Hard to imagine that Takakeisho can catch up witch Takayasu now, but to finish 2nd should be easy for him. Goeido has basically secured a top 3 finish.

Day 12

148:    Takayasu
104:    Goeido
94:    Takakeisho
63:    Tochiozan
57:    Kotoshogiku
44:    Tochinoshin
42:    Endo
40:    Shodai
37:    Myogiryu
33:    Abi

Takakeisho (and Ichinojo) definitely benefited from Goeido's kyujo.  One wouldn't' have expected to see 9 (6) kensho on the bout(s) against Tamawashi (Ryuden).  Takakeisho is a lot closer to 100 now!

No luck for Takakeisho - he gets Takayasu tomorrow for the 2nd to last bout. But a win would get him the yusho, so the pack should be just as big as the one for the last bout with Tochinoshin-Mitakeumi. One win of the last 2 is what he needs to finish 2nd on the kensho list. Tochinoshin can still finish 4th - one big pack left for him, and the last day should also be one with more than 10.

Day 13

179:    Takayasu
104:    Goeido
103:    Takakeisho
69:    Kotoshogiku
65:    Tochiozan
55:    Tochinoshin
49:    Endo
40:    Shodai
40:    Myogiryu
34:    Ryuden

Really appreciate the list, but is there a way to get the annual totals?  We have the totals for the top ten, but that leaves us guessing for the rest of the bazuke...

Those data are from the Nikkan banzuke, next basho the total for 2018 is listed. You have to subtract the data from the previous basho and get the totals for those who are still on the makuuchi banzuke. I did that before the Nikkan format changed, but have not updated my routines for that, so I just post the sorted, extracted input data.

I had posted the source for many old basho, to show anybody who wants to go through with this procedure where to find the data.

I compiled a chart of kensho winnings, but for the life of me, I couldn't create a capture small enough (10K limit, really!) to attach, so all I can do is try to type it out here:

2018 Kensho totals for Sanyaku wrestlers on the Kyushu banzuke

                                Total                            Bouts                            Wins                        Kensho/bout                Kensho/win

Hakuho                   762                               37                                  30                             20.6                                25.4

Kakuryu                 1255                              65                                  51                             19.3                                24.6

Kisenosato              343                               24                                 11                             14.3                               31.2

Goeido                     797                               79                                 55                              10.1                               14.5

Takayasu                 959                              75                                  56                              12.8                               17.1

Tochinoshin            583                              81                                  59                                7.2                                 9.9

Mitakeumi               709                              90                                  53                                7.9                               13.4

Ichinojo                    297 (?)                        90                                  49                                3.3                                 6.1

Takakeisho              356                              85                                  50                                4.2                                 7.1     

Kaisei                       148 (?)                         86                                  46                                1.7                                 3.2

 

Anyone can see that the top prize grosser was Kakuryu.  Interestingly, Hakuho - GOAT or not - is in fourth place, with Takayasu and Goeido taking home more kensho prizes than he did.  The fact that Hakuho did as well has he did (kensho-wise) despite only fighting in 37 bouts, shows that when he shows up, he usually wins and when he wins he wins big.  But being fourth on the Top 10 (kensho) earnings list in 2018 definitely indicates that his career is in decline.

Kisenosato fought the fewest bouts of all (i.e., 24) and won less than half of those contests!  But he tops the "kensho/win" average by a comfortable margin.  Clearly, kensho sponsors have consistently backed Kisenosato despite what was a very disappointing year.  

Another interesting sanyaku wrestler is Mitakeumi, especially when compared to Tochinoshin.  Mitakeumi took home (~20%) more kensho than Tochinoshin despite the fact that Tochinoshin spent most 2018 tournaments as an Ozeki (vs. Sekiwake) and won more bouts.  When all is said and done, Mitakeumi's earning power (i.e., kensho/win) is more Ozeki-worthy than Tochinoshin's.  

At the bottom, we find Kaisei, but that is not a huge surprise since he was only Sanyaku ranked in the final tournament of the year.  Frankly, I'm surprised that Ichinojo did as well as he did.  I definitely feel that he has lost a significant number of backers since his initial entry into the Top Division, and in 2018 he only won 54.4% of his bouts!

I would be interested in other forum members' observations from the above stats.  One of the many great things about sumo is that it is statistics rich!

I will carefully think on this(Detective...).  The only thing that stands out immediately is that kensho/bout is more telling than kensho/win.  Pardon me if I'm wrong, but since your kensho column shows only kensho won, the kensho/win only tells you how many kensho are on each bout (certainly true for the Yokozuna and other popular rikishi).  If fans were placing 50 kensho on each of Kisenosato's bouts, and he only won two bouts out of 20 all year, he'd still have 50 kensho/win, but he'd only have 5 kensho/bout.  Of course, rikishi that can steal a stack of kensho against a popular foe several times will stand out in the kensho/win column.

 

It would be difficult to tally, but I think an important number would be how many total kensho were at stake during the year for each rikishi.  The ratio of (kensho won)/(kensho at stake) would be illuminating, I'll bet.

Thanks Yamanashi for your insights.  I think you made several very good points.  I make it a rule to be weary of statistics, but they are just so interesting to mull over. 

I see the kensho/bout versus the kensho/win as an indicator of wrestlers' ability to realise income (actual performance on a financial scale) versus their potential earning power.  As you rightly pointed out, gold star wins can skew results, but that is one of the reasons I focused on sanyaku wrestlers.  Elite wrestlers are generally treated as being on a more equal plane (hence, no kinboshi for Yokozuna upsets).

As for the won:at-stake ratio, I imagine Kisenosato's would be appalling. ;-)

Results after the respective basho from the next Nikkan banzuke. I'm checking the results for those with 1 basho in juryo for sure (first makuuchi bout) and possible kensho wins, and those videos to see if there were kensho and if I can spot how many.

Kotoyuki may have had 2 & 2 for Haru and Nagoya, but the packs looked like 3 & 1. Kyokutaisei 1 for Aki, Ishiura 4 on day 1 against Kotoyuki, 5 on day 10 against Ryuden - envelopes could be counted in the packs, one kensho apparently had already left the dohyo on day 10 NHK. Kotoeko 1 against Tochiozan in Nagoya. Haru: Sokokurai 1 on d6, about 2 each against Asanoyama on day 8 and Kotoyuki on day 10, 1 on day 11. Hidenoumi only had 3 on d12.

Aminishiki had kensho at 5 basho and Takekaze at 4 - how many remains to be checked - especially tedious for the Natsu basho: I don't think I'll do the first 3 basho in detail. For all basho, other possible winners from juryo have to be checked to make the table and the rankings complete.

I rearranged the above table to get the full ranking for last basho. Kotoyuki had 1 last basho from his 1 bout in makuuchi - and thus 13 at the Aki basho.

Final ranking for Kyushu - I'll complete the above 1 year table basho by basho and post the rankings there.

Kotoyuki had 1 kensho from his 1 bout in makuuchi, Arawashi at his one win had no kensho. Chiyomaru had 3 - 2 against Kagayaki, 1 against Arawashi, 0 at the other 2 wins. Kotoeko had 2, Aminishiki 1, Hidenoumi 1 against Chiyomaru d12, and Daishoho d7 vs. Meisei, d14 vs. Takanosho - 2 bouts won with the 1 sure kensho each of the first makuuchi bout - the Abema guy said day 14 must be the first ever kensho for Daishoho - he surely never looks at the results from earlier days.

I find it quite interesting that Yago, a Juryo wrestler, was able to win more kensho than 12 (10 to be fair) Makuuchi wrestlers, and he only fought in two Top Division bouts, whereas in most cases the others had 15 such bouts.  Sometimes it helps to be in the first Makuuchi bout of the day!

Also note that Aminishiki won a few kensho on Day 6, but he's not on the list...

You were quicker than my re-check - Aminishiki is now listed above - it was just 1 kensho parading - and I had dropped Takanosho
