It's been a while-I asked the same question.

Well that's a little late to pay attention, isn't it? :-P

Pardon me if this has been mentioned before, but 121 entries for GTB is the highest turnout since Nagoya 2006! And not too far from the all-time high, which is 132.

I can’t be happier.

Sorry, I was on vacation during the basho and that voluntary sumo break ended up a bit more extended than I had anticipated. GTB completely slipped my mind until about six hours after the deadline.

Yeah, I think I got 36 points. Truly terrible.

40 here i think; my lowest ever.

Par score is bound to be low though with the huge dollop of randomness thrown in this time

Well, what can I say..- a very low scoring affair.  The winner won with 50 points, which I am told by Andoreasu who runs the game  is the lowest score since the advent of the wheel since we had 42 rikishi in Makuuchi. Winner? Sakura, for the second time. Congratulations!! The biggest surprise ever was the new players. The numbers were overwhelming- 16 new players of 121 in all, which is about 7 and a half percent. 8 of them kachikoshi, 7 of them with 9 wins or more. I am blown away. This one was a total crap shoot-I don't get the logic behind a lot, but who am I to question the powers that be?

Milestones:

Heriokuno -100th basho!!!

Torafujii -  80th basho

Mmikasazuma - 80th basho

Gonzaburow- 80th basho

Akinomaki -70th basho

Pandaazuma- 60 bashos

Thank you all for playing and making me a very happy human. Thanks as usual to Andoreasu and Doitsuyama for making all this goodness possible..

And now, on with the Ba-show!!

See how you did..

The perfect one to sit out. This one was an exercise in comedy randomness! 

Glad you are well!

My certainty that Ichinojo wouldn't make it was a complete joke.

Why schedule what sure looked like an exchange bout and then ignore the result?

Congrats to @Sakura! I am truly stoked with my 12-3, but disheartened about my future prospects given how bizarre people far more experienced than I find this banzuke.

It was always going to be a lottery with all those 10-5s and 4-11s flying around. Plus it was not at all clear where the Juryo promotees would end up or even who they all were. PLUS the usual levels of shochu drinking were clearly a major factor here!
