Kensho Haru 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'll post kensho and (should there be some) spirited rikishi this basho  - a bit late sometimes.

Hardly watched by the public, but about half of the sponsors placed the intended kensho - about 1000 on the whole basho. Of 74 companies, 39 canceled their kensho, but 3 of them thought it over and placed them after-all. http://www.daily.co.jp/general/2020/03/08/0013175842.shtml

The Chiyomaru-Meisei bout today had 1 kensho planned as the first bout of makuuchi http://www.sumo.or.jp/pdf/honbasho/kansen/torikumi/2003_08.pdf

The Takayasu-Asanoyama bout had a bunch of kensho planned - comma separated: http://www.sumo.or.jp/pdf/honbasho/kansen/torikumi/2003_05.pdf - I have no info about distribution to other bouts, but there likely were some

With Takakeisho's loss and Hakuho's win on day 9, the Yokozuna regains the lead in kensho prizes won this tournament.  As long as he keeps winning, Hakuho should be able to crack 100, but that is nothing to brag about...  Hakuho has collected six times that many in the past.  What a difference a virus makes! (Wearingapaperbag...)

I love this topic, and I'd like to use your data to make fancy charts from them to my hungarian sumo fanpage :) Can I have your permission?

And also: Where do you find the kensho data? From a public source? Can you share it with me? Maybe it's from the official NSK scorecard pdfs - but can you show me in which column do they show the number of the kensho banners? (I don't speak and can't really read kanji - I started to learn hiragana a while ago, but it's pretty hard for me to understand the system of these symbols...) Thanks in advance!

These are the daily Nikkan data, feel free to use them: http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/data/sm-standings.html

I save them before they vanish the next day, and post them here in alphabet short form

Yubinhaad told us in another thread that the NSK posts the full planned kensho data now - they are a bit tedious to check though:

I wonder how Takakeisho's and Asanoyama's kensho will match up next basho.

Someone should create a sumo game based on kensho predictions (prebasho? daily?) ..... :-D

Day 1 had 83, down from 146  o

Before Haru, 39 of 74 sponsors had announced they'll cancel, 2 of them later re-applied. 33 were considering, o Yakult (Takakeisho) and Nagatanien were sure.

Companies who regularly had put kensho on one rikishi for all 15 days had stayed away for Haru and plan to do so also for July. Welcia drugstores is one who put kensho for Haru and for July also wants to place 4 each day as each basho, except for Kyushu, where they have no branches. Nagatanien is THE major kensho sponsor, for about 20 years now. They intend as usual to put about 200 kensho for July.

kensho for the last bout on day 8, Kakuryu-Mitakeumi (there were 18 in all), Welcia on the left
