Guess Hokutofuji's Aite January 2020

Recommended Posts

I know, I know, the torikumi isn't out yet. But according to the rules I have to cancel WAKATAKE's pick for being too late.

Seven picks for Enho (including leader Sakura and out-of-contention Oshirokita), nine picks for Tokushoryu (including runner-up Ryoshishokunin).

Nine picks for banzuke-bottom Tokushoryu? Would have appeared crazy as hell two weeks ago...

HAHAHAHA.  We all so smrt.  

I considered Yutakayama, but I couldn't figure out a combination of results that would make it happen.  

(Also, this torikumi is super weird.  Good thing they saved all those San'yaku bouts for the last day...)

*Dai-Yokozuna Sakura

Many thanks to Jakusotsu for looking after the game.  I will try and do the wrap up posts later today (or tomorrow).

I for one have always said that Abi vs Daiesho would be the highlight sanyaku bout for this basho. (Laughing...)

Dai-Yokozuna Sakura once again shows why she is the greatest ever player to play this game.
Yokozunas Gurowake and Kuroimori barely got their KKs. More is expected from them. We hope to see better in March.
The last time that Yokozuna Jakusotsu showed Ozeki Quality sumo was back in May of 2019. In the bashos since, he has gone MK or scraped a KK. We will set him a challenge of showing why he is worthy of the Yokozuna rank by displaying Ozeki Quality in either (preferably both) of the upcoming March and May bashos. 
Having won the Yusho in November, and a share of the Jun-Yusho this basho, Sekiwake Ryoshishokunin will be considered for promotion to Ozeki with a mere KK in March.

OQ line requires winning the tournament?  Certainly it should at least also include those with Jun-Yusho?  I don't know how it's calculated, but that definitely seems off.

My result makes it clear, I'm totally clueless what the Torikumi makers do and what they are trying to accomplish! 

I've recently seen a Sumo documentary which included a scene of the Torukumi meeting in the 90s, which was sort of a revelation. Apparently, the only tool used was a Banzuke board with stones which marked the Rikishi already paired. All is work of the mind and possibly gut feeling involved. I'm thrilled, but to me it seems hopeless to predict.

Yutakayama was the other option, I considered. Day 15 is the hardest day now since the Kyokai has information we don't, i.e. the results for Day 14.

The KK line is calculated by adding the scores of every player (except the kyokai) who turned up for at least 10 days, then dividing by that number of players and rounding to the nearest whole number.

The OQ line is calculated by multiplying the unrounded number for the KK by 1.3333, and then rounding to the nearest whole number.
