Hi!

Not sure how to get through June, without any sumo games to play? How about the Bench Euros - based on the football / soccer tournament about to start in a couple of weeks in France.....

Come over to this sumo forum link to find out more!

Re:  Message from the BSYDC 
Here it is!  The Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council Chair, the esteemed Marushiki, actually sent this to me about a month ago, but I managed to overlook it whilst I was away in the Philippines.  But, better late than never, here is her missive to the rijicho....

Venerable Richijo

The Bench YDC have met and heatedly debated the results of the Nagoya basho. 

As every Bench Rikishi knows, the fickle hand of fate likes to laugh at some of us and put in our paths interesting challenges. One basho you can do fabulously well, and the next are crushed by poor performances of trusted teams.

In regard to Ozeki Kitakachiyama, We continue to encourage him to do his best, and keep practicing sumo to the highest form.  We offer out support and hope that the rest of 2016 continues to bring good things to him

In regard to Yokozuna Randomitsuki,  One of the wise and esteemed council mentioned that we seem to create a Wakanohana III.  eg:  Great Ozeki, struggles as Yokozuna.     We do continue to offer him support and encouragement to continue to find his stride that he had at the Ozeki Level.

As an aside, indeed to my very humble opinion (no reflection as to the thoughts of the other members of the YDC), have we created a curse? Every Yokozuna for the Bench seems to have similar experiences.   
 
So we await now the next basho, in September, and wish not only these two excellent rikishi, but everyone in the BS game good picking and placing.

Marushiki (Chair YDC)

A post from Jakusotsu (over at the 'other' English language Sumo Forum)....

This is a copy of what I just posted on the Bench Sumo ML:

_______________________________________________

We had some minor hiccups recently, but this time we might be screwed for good.
 
The NSK page now switched their torikumi page from URL links to javascript, which seems to have busted Doitsuyama's results grabber. This primarily affects the SumoDB, which also feeds every game hosted on sumogames.de (apart from Golynohana's games, but his own grabber seems to be kaputt as well).
 
Only Doitsuyama can fix this, but he has been hard pressed for time recently, and this change is nothing to adapt quickly, I fear.
 
I don't want to paint things too black, but the affected games may be over this basho.
 
At least for Bench Sumo you can still get your entries in via these links:

Dear all,

I have been rather busy of late, but the following message was delivered to me a few days ago by the venerable Marushiki, chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council.

****************
Venerable Richijo

Firstly, the YDC sadly accept the intai of Randomituski from Yokozuna ranking.   

It was a short rein but memorable, we wish him well in future endeavours.   One of the YDC members suggested  instating "ichidai haridashi yokozuna" status. 

It is hoped that Randomitsuki will keep playing as Randomitsuki II in future Basho, his presence will be missed should he completely leave.

In regard to Kitakachiyama, We are all very impressed with his performance over the last year.   It is with honour that we offer Kitakachiyama the promotions to Yokozuna.

The acceptance of this promotion is entirely up to his.  Given the experiences of previous Yokozuna, and knowing the challenges faced in the BS game, (Not to mention the possible Wakanohana II curse) .   Should he choose to decline promotion we fully understand. 

   
 Marushiki (Chair YDC)
****************

Of course Kitakachiyama will accept the promotion! (and will be ranked at Yokozuna on the next banzuke.)  Omedetou!  Back-to-back yushos is impressive!

We look forward to reading Kitakachiyama's yusho acceptance speech, and his Yokozuna acceptance speech.

It is a new era of Bench Sumo - the Kitakachiyama era!

Hi all!

There is another promotion to announce.

Susanoo has done enough (30 wins over the past three bashos, with the last basho being ranked at Sekiwake) to be awarded re-promotion to Ozeki.

Omedetou!

It is hoped that this time, he will do better than during his last stint (in 2012), when he lasted for just bashos, with a combined score of 11-19.

We hope to hear his words on his promotion back to Ozeki!

Hi all!

Here is the new banzuke for November 2016.  This one was quite tricky to put together - but in the end, Jejima, Flohru and Kaiomitsuki managed to do it, (with Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari looking on.)

Kitakachiyama becomes our newest Yokozuna. Susanoo returns to Ozeki. Randomitsuki (after his intai) rejoins the banzuke at ms10W, by the rijicho's invitation.

Overall, there seems to be decent amounts of good luck, with little bad luck.

Hi everyone! 

In what might be a record time for recent years, here is the new banzuke for January 2017.  It was put together by Flohru, Kaiomitsuki and Jejima, with Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari watching on.

It was fairly straight forward to put together - although there are pockets of bad luck, especially for MK players.

It is worth noting that former Yokozuna Randomitsuki is already ranked in lower Juryo.  I am guessing he could well be in the Makunouchi joi-jin by the end of 2017!

All the best,

Jejima

Hi all!

Here is the new Bench banzuke for March 2017.  It was put together by Flohru, Kaiomitsuki and Jejima, under the watchful eye of Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari.

There is some bad luck (especially for a few demoted), but not too much!

Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

We all thought that this would be a tricky banzuke to put together, but in the end it turned out to be quite simple.   The banzuke making commitee are Flohru, Kaiomitsuki and me (Jejima), with Ekigozan, Kintamayama and Asashosakari looking on.

There are some players with real bad luck (apologies to those) - but also there are some players with lots of good luck (check out some of the promotions in Makunouchi!)

Anyways, here it is!

Hi all!

Going into the last basho, we had 5 Sekiwakes all on legitimate Ozeki runs!  Now that the dust has cleared, the Bench Banzuke committee is happy to announce that one of these five did more than enough to reach the required standard, and we now have a new bench Ozeki!


Step forward....

Rubensan!

The Sakura Ichimon's Rubensan's record over the past three basho has been....
March 2017 - M5W 11-4
May 2017 - K1W 10-5
July 2017 - S2E 10-5

This exceeds the guideline of 30 wins over three bashos, with the last two in sanyaku, and the very last one at Sekiwake.

Rubensan is a long-time player of Bench Sumo, so I am very pleased to announce his promotion.

I will be sending Oyakata's Flohru and Kaiomitsuki (the other banzuke makers), around to Rubensan's heya to officially announce the good news.  I hope that we will be hearing an acceptance speech from the shin-ozeki in due course!

Hi everyone!

Kaiomitsuki, Flohru and Jejima, under the watchful eyes of the emeriti Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari, have crafted the new Bench Banzuke for September 2017.

This one was trickier than usual - especially as the sanyaku has been reduced from the bloated 10 in July, to the Bench Sumo's preferred standard of just 8.  Usually when a sanyaku downsizing happens, it means a knock-on effect for players with MKs in Makunouchi receiving more bad luck than usual - and for the MK players in the lower half of the top division, this has happened....  be warned!

Apart from the horrifying amounts of bad luck for some MK players in lower Makunouchi, the rest of the banzuke seems to be mostly devoid either of lots of luck, one way or the other.

Enjoy!

Dear all,

I have received the following message from Marushiki, the Chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council. (the rijicho's comments follow after)

Venerable Rijicho

It is with heavy hearts that the BSYDC have met to discuss our Yokozuna.

Kitakachiyama has always tried his best, and has kept honour to the name of Yokozuna.  His performance leading up to his promotion to this esteemed rank was outstanding.  But as with those who have gone before, it is difficult to maintain such great feats.   (Especially when you are relying on a bunch of real guys who may be struggling for one reason or another)

After much deliberation and soul searching the BSYDC must sadly ask for Kitakachiyama to Intai. 

We would like to thank him for his diligence, and persistence in trying to maintain his rank.

We hope that he understands our decision and is happy starting back at Kitakachiyama II in the lower ranks.   

Marushiki (Chair BSYDC)

As rijicho, I ask the Yokozuna to give his response to the BSYDC as soon as possible. (within 48 hours would be preferred, in order to give the Banzuke makers time to make the new banzuke.)

With retirement, Kitakachiyama would be invited to rejoin  the banzuke at ms10W. (although he may choose to restart from the very bottom, which would be, ummm, ms14W, so not too much difference these days.)

I personally would like to thank Kitakachiyama for his exciting rise to reach the top rank, and for his service as Yokozuna. Bench Sumo is always best, when there is a Yokozuna at the summit.

Hi all,

After the news regarding Yokozuna Kitakachiyama's intai, I am pleased to be the bearer of some happier news.

The banzuke makers have decided to promote ScreechingOwl to the rank of Ozeki for the November banzuke.

Although ScreechingOwl fell just short of the usual guidelines for promotion. (He has 29 wins over his past three bashos, and the guidelines state 30 wins), his remarkable consistency (57 wins over the past 6 bashos), was taken into consideration.

Congratulations on your promotion! We look forward to reading ScreechingOwl's acceptance speech.

Hi everyone!

Here is the new banzuke for November 2017.  It was put together by Jejima, Flohru and Kaiomitsuki, under the watchful eyes of Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari.

With the expansion of sanyaku from 8 to 10 members, and with the sad intai of the Yokozuna (and for lower down the division, the 0-0-15 from Ekigozan), it has meant that there is LOADS of good banzuke luck being handed out this basho.  (Be warned!  If the sanyaku gets reduced back to 8 after November, it will be bad luck time for the January 2018 banzuke - so best to get a KK next time around ;-))

Bench Sumo banzukes are made using a 'dynamic banzuke making principle' which means that they are made a little differently to Ozumo and (probably) other sumo games.  Basically we look to always give the demotions due to players, to the possible benefit (good banzuke luck!) of players with KKs lower down the banzuke.  It means that in the long run, KK players have a better chance of going up the banzuke at a reasonable pace.

Some banzuke comments:-

Ozekis
ScreechingOwl is the new Ozeki.  By Bench tradition, he has to join the 'end-of-the-queue' at O2E, which means Itachiyama, (who was absent in September) is now O1W.  Despite being kadoban for November, Rubensan now sits atop the Bench banzuke for the first time ever at O1E.  Omedetou!

Sekiwakes
All three Sekiwakes are on Ozeki runs! 

By Bench tradition, newly demoted Susanoo gets the last Sekiwake spot, which (to balance the three Ozekis above), means S2W.  He needs at least 10 wins to be guaranteed a return to Ozeki 'the quick way'.

Jakusotsu had that amazing 12-day-winning-streak to take the yusho in September.  In his previous basho, he had a mere 8-7 KK from mid-way down the banzuke.  This means that a double digit KK might be enough for him to be promoted to Ozeki after November.

Perhaps Hokuyutaka has the easiest route to promotion to Ozeki?  He followed his 12-3 Yusho in July, with a 10-5 Jun-Yusho (at komusubi) in September.  Based on the numbers, any kind of KK might be enough for him to get the promotion!

Komusubis
By Bench tradition (which is different to the tradition regarding Ozekis....), Kosho komusubis get moved to the end of the queue, so Metzinowaka takes the K2W slot.  We have a Bench Banzuke making guideline that the sanyaku should be 8 players, but can be expanded up to 10 players in certain cases.  This means that Itachi very nearly was not promoted to komusubi...  He can thank the former Yokozuna for his intai, to free up a 10th place for him to slip into!

Sanyaku
If all 10 of the sanyaku turn up in November, then there should be 45 matches between the sanyaku members.  That is three all-sanyaku bouts each day throughout the basho.  That means there will be LOADS of points available for the Outstanding Performance Prize (get ready Marushiki!), and the ZQoSA could well be high-scoring too, despite the absence of a Yokozuna.

Joi-jin
Joi-jin players are those who can be expected to have matches against sanyaku players at some stage of the tournament.  Basically, it is the players who round out the 'top 16' - below the sanyaku.  If everyone turns up, it means we will have a very shallow joi-jin.  It would only dip down to the two M3s.

I expect to be the torikumi maker for Makunouchi in November.  If this is the case, I will divide the joi-jin into three.  The two M1s can expect to face every member of the sanyaku with very little (if any) exception.  The two M2s can also expect to meet every member of the sanyaku, however (if they are not themselves in the yusho race) they might skip one or two of the top ranks, who are needed to fight a yusho-hopeful from lower down the banzuke.  If either of the M3s are in the yusho race, they can expect to face all (or nearly all) of the sanyaku.  If they are not in the yusho race, they can expect to meet most of the non-genki (i.e. not in the yusho race themselves) sanyaku.

Lower Makunouchi
From Leonishiki's promotion to M5W to the very bottom of the Makunouchi division, there is LOTS of banzuke luck for KK players (getting big promotions), and some luck for MK players too, getting less than a normal demotion.

Some interesting notes....
Hana-ichi keeps her rank on the banzuke at M12W, despite recording a MK!  (This might be a first in the history of Bench Sumo for a Makunouchi player outside of the Ozeki/Yokozuna ranks.)

The two KOSHO players at the bottom of the division, actually go up a rank, as the bottom of the division has shrunk, thanks to the expansion of the sanyaku.

The promoted players from Juryo will be very happy!
Roundeye and GONZABUROW both end up mid-table (under more usual circumstances, they would be at the bottom of the division.)  On other banzukes, Holleshoryu could easily have been kept in Juryo, yet he is now ranked at a fairly safe M12E rank.  Perhaps the player getting the biggest surprise, will be toonoryu.  The Juryo Yusho winner (10-5) has been promoted all the way to Makunouchi from J9W!

Juryo
8-7s (with the one exception of shimodahito) all get moved up two ranks.  (Normally, they would expect a one-rank promotion only).  Perhaps the biggest surprise in the second division, is for Makushita Yusho winner (10-5) ihopeso.  He has been promoted all the way to J12E from ms8W!

Makushita
The former Yokozuna, Kitakachiyama, declined the offer to rejoin the banzuke at the ms10W rank, preferring to start at the very bottom.  However, this is almost the same, being ms14W.  I predict that he will be in Juryo by early 2018.

Anyways, enjoy the banzuke - you are probably going to have some banzuke luck with your rank!
