We will definitely be opening up the Juryo division after March's bacho - which will be nice.

Thanks to Chat GPT,

Here are the 'Friends' enjoying Sekitori Sweepstake. If you would like to play too - just say that so on this thread. Those already signed up - don't worry, I have your names already.

@Kuramarujo and @Pandaazuma - where are you?

 

Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe are gathered in the Central Perk coffee house, discussing their latest obsession, Sekitori Sweepstake.

Joey: "Hey, I just got my wrestler for the tournament! I got Takakeisho!"

Chandler: "Oh man, that's a good one. I hope I get someone just as good."

Ross: "I got Asanoyama. He's pretty strong, right?"

Rachel: "I don't know much about sumo wrestling, but I got Mitakeumi, so that's cool, right?"

Monica: "I got Endo. He's not the strongest, but I'm still excited to see how he does."

Phoebe: "I got Chiyotairyu! He's got a fun name at least."

Joey: "Alright, let's watch the matches and see who comes out on top!"

Over the next 15 days, the friends tune in to watch the sumo matches and keep track of their wrestlers' records.

Joey: "Yes! Takakeisho won again! He's on a roll!"

Chandler: "Ugh, I can't believe Abi lost again. My record is not looking good."

Ross: "Asanoyama won again! He's really living up to his reputation."

Rachel: "Mitakeumi lost today. I hope he can turn it around."

Monica: "Endo won his match! Maybe he'll surprise us all."

Phoebe: "Chiyotairyu lost again, but that's okay. It's just a game, right?"

At the end of the tournament, the friends gather once more in Central Perk to tally up their scores.

Joey: "Yes! Takakeisho finished with 11 wins and 4 losses. That's not bad at all."

Chandler: "Ugh, Abi finished with only 6 wins and 9 losses. I definitely didn't get lucky with my draw."

Ross: "Asanoyama finished with 10 wins and 5 losses. Not bad, but I was hoping for better."

Rachel: "Mitakeumi finished with 8 wins and 7 losses. I guess that's okay?"

Monica: "Endo finished with 7 wins and 8 losses. Better luck next time, I guess."

Phoebe: "Chiyotairyu finished with only 4 wins and 11 losses. Oh well, it was still fun to watch!"

Despite their varying degrees of success, the friends all agree that Sekitori Sweepstake was a fun and exciting game to play together.

If Chiyotairyu gets 4 wins this tournament, i'll eat my hat.

First to assign the Makushita rikishi for those players starting in Mae-zumo...

So, let's randomly order the newbies using this online tool....

 

There were 9 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

  1. WAKATAKE
  2. Seiyashi
  3. Chiyotasuke
  4. Oshirokita
  5. #1HENKAFAN
  6. Karasukurai
  7. Henshu-sha
  8. Kotononami
  9. Hakuhonofan

I am using this random wheel to allocate the Makushita rikishi for the Mae-zumo players. If the assigned Makushita rikishi is declared kyujo for the tournament, then I will randomly assign a replacement, when known.

Okay, let's randomly order the existing banzuke....

(pandaazuma and Kuramarujo do not get a rikishi, as they have not entered. However, if they let me know before the start of the basho, they can still play, with one of the remaining sekitori rikishi.)

If the sekitori assigned to you is not on the day 1 torikumi, I'll assign you another one from whoever is left.....

There were 38 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

  1. M4W sumojoann (mz 9-6)
  2. M19W Kaba (mz 4-11)
  3. M17W Igiski (mz 5-10)

Well my youngest son, Kaba, just spun himself to getting the Yokozuna! He says, "Yeah!"

I've warned him that he might be spinning again once the day 1 torikumi is known.
