Not the Kyushu basho 2020 GTB invite - 130 entries

Recommended Posts

Drrring drrring..

Kakuryuu : "Come on , pick up.."

Hakuhou: "Yes, Anand. I know, I know, the YDC didn't like what they didn't see.. Big deal.."

K: "No, you don't get it- my shisho is also on my case and told me if I don't do well the next time I step on the clayed ring  we shall have to make decisions. You know what that means, right?"

H: "As we say here-'kubida!!' It's your neck..Takarafuji appreciates that one.."

K: "You think this is funny? We're away  for a few bashos and everyone and his sister gets the yusho and suddenly we're irrelevant.."

H: "Right. If we stay away long enough, Enhou will get the yusho. That's my ultimate plan.."

K: "That is just diabolical. When are you guys arriving? I arrived earlier than usual, so that I can train well and have a good basho so the YDC won't get angry and my shisho will let me eat my mutton in peace..'"

H: "Arriving?"

K: "Yeah, in Kyushu. Still pretty warm for this time of the season.."

H: "Kyushu? What the &^%4$ are you doing there?"

K:"I  know, I came earlier- I just told you.. seems quiet enough though.."

H: "Kyushu? Are you nuts?"

K: "Why? Are you trying to tell me something?"

H: "Yes. But I'll wait a few days.. No hurry."

Soooo, this is an invitation to play the "Guess the Banzuke" game!! Please play. Rules: Guess the Banzuke. Simple. You get two points for a bulls-eye and one point for just getting the rank right. You get no points for claiming you knew Shoudai was going to become Ozeki. . Tiebreakers - Most total guesses, then we check the banzuke backwards - getting the lower half right will be important.  The most correct guesses in the last ten places will win the tiebreaker. If still tied, we go up a ranking at a time like a penalty shootout. It's up to you to check if you are on the list of entries. It's going to be your fault if you don't notice that your entry went missing in the Internet void. No late entries will be expected or accepted.

Deadline- Monday October 19th, 2020 at 18:00 GMT ("Great Moves, Tobizaru!!") - PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS ONE WEEK BEFORE THE OFFICIAL BANZUKE ANNOUNCEMENT !!

Special thanks to Andoreasu who runs it, Doitsuyama who automates and maintains it and to life, because it's shorter than Enhou.

Whew! What a workout! Well, I've got mine submitted... I have Kyokutaisei, Abi, Ishiura, Kotoshogiku and Shohozan going down and Kotonowaka, Kotoyuki, Chiyoshoma, Chiyonokuni and Akua coming up...

It really depresses me that Akua is likely to be promoted.  His career path just didn't look like he was destined to make it out of Juryo, especially with his first 2 awful performances.  I didn't expect him back in Juryo at all after those two, and now he'll be in Makuuchi?  Ugh.

"when" and not "if"?

From your lips to God's ears ;-)

B-) As somebody who's been following him since back when he was still Toyononami, I wholeheartedly disagree. But I'm all in favour of guys overachieving with a cup of coffee appearance anyway, whether it's makuuchi or juryo.

You should update the GTB graph, considering how many entries there have been lately.

That was BRUTAL. Bottom half of the banzuke is a total crapshoot, for me. I gave Takayasu the nod over Kiribayama for Komusubi but I feel like I'll regret that.

A friendly reminder from your friendly reminder: 6 days left -  the site has a tendency to go down a lot, so do not wait till the last minute to get your entries in, because you might be left out looking in. Good luck, looks like a difficult one this time.

Finally found the time for a quick GTB session after a rather long hiatus. Let's see if the quick and dirty approach fares better than spending long hours of careful banzuke-puzzling.

My hopeless attempt:

Hakuho (Ye 0-0-15)        Y    Kakuryu (Yw 0-0-15)
Takakeisho (Ow 12-3)      O1   Asanoyama (Oe 10-5)
Shodai (S1e 13-2 Y)       O2   ---
Mitakeumi (S1w 8-7)       S    Takanosho (M1w 10-5)
Terunofuji (M1e 8-5-2)    K    Takayasu (M6e 10-5)

Kiribayama (M5e 9-4-2)    M1   Wakatakakage (M8w 11-4)
Daieisho (S2e 5-10)       M2   Onosho (M9w 10-5)
Kagayaki (M6w 8-7)        M3   Hokutofuji (M2e 6-9)
Okinoumi (Ke 4-11)        M4   Myogiryu (M3e 6-9)
Tobizaru (M14e 11-4)      M5   Kotoshoho (M12e 10-5)
Takarafuji (M5w 7-8)      M6   Tamawashi (M2w 5-10)
Endo (Kw 3-9-3)           M7   Tochinoshin (M4w 6-9)
Terutsuyoshi (M3w 5-10)   M8   Aoiyama (M7w 7-8)
Tokushoryu (M8e 7-8)      M9   Kotoeko (M10w 8-7)
Meisei (M13e 9-6)         M10  Ryuden (M7e 6-9)
Sadanoumi (M10e 7-8)      M11  Enho (M9e 6-9)
Yutakayama (M4e 2-6-7)    M12  Kaisei (M12w 7-8)
Hoshoryu (M16w 8-7)       M13  Ichinojo (M17e 8-7)
Chiyotairyu (M11e 5-8-2)  M14  Kotonowaka (J2w 9-6)
Chiyonokuni (J11w 14-1 Y) M15  Chiyoshoma (J4e 9-6)
Kotoyuki (J2e 8-7)        M16  Shimanoumi (M15e 6-9)
Akua (J6w 10-5)           M17  ---

I'm feeling strangely confident on everything except M5e to M8e, but that whole section could well be zero points...my first draft still looked totally different (Tobizaru and Kotoshoho last instead of first) and was arguably equally justifiable.

Very similar to mine (now posted over at Tachiai) except for M5-M7 and some rearrangements at M14 and below.

I can't help feeling that Endo is going to be key. I had a lot of trouble placing him, and I feel that if I get that wrong, that whole section could be a big 0.

Here's mine, with some attempt at tiering (though by the end, all tiers had shrunken to 1 or 2 members).

If I keep tiering in the future, I guess I'll cut out the red/purple/pink cause they're a little hard to look at, sorry.

Meh, I really think I have Daieisho/Onosho the wrong way around after looking at it again, and I had it right on first draft. The rest I feel good about.
