Hi everyone,

The new Ozumo banzuke will be published tomorrow - and so we can start to get excited about the Fukuoka (November) basho :-)

For a bit of fun, here are some Bench milestones going into the final basho of the year.

There are three parts....
1. The players at a new career high rank, including 3 shin-Juryos, 2 shin-Sekiwakes and a shin-Ozeki.

2. The number of active bashos (multiples of 10) - *if* the player turns up in November.

3. Players who have a chance of going to a new 'multiple of 100' career wins in November.  This includes players who would need a 15-0 to do so....  But they can dream ;-)

Enjoy!

Jejima (BS rijicho)

THANK YOU DOITSUYAMA!!!!!



Hi everybody!


The Bench Sumo entry website is up <http://benchsumo.sumogames.de/>.  There is just over 24 hours to make your initial entry - so don't waste time, do it now!

Many apologies for the delay.  I understand that it was due to the Sumo Kyokai's webpage chaning its script.

*****After your initial entry, you may still change your squad, up until 2 pm (Japan time) on Sunday.*****

Hurry up, and get at least a place-holder team in.  

All the best,

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Hi all!

It is time to announce the winner of the 2017 Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award!

Last year Yokozuna Kitakachiyama won the 2016 ZQoSA award with 469 points (he also won it in 2015 with 475 points).

After his intai, (and now as a Makushita rikishi), it is unlikely that he will be defending his title....

Okay, so let's get to the winner of the 2017 edition of the ZQoSA.....

It is Komusubi Daminonay!  Omedetou!

His ZQoSA scores for the year were as follows:- 70, 91, 87, 63, 76 and 108 - so a fine finish to end the year.

ScreechingOwl, who had been the front runner for some time, is knocked back into second place.  Rubensan, Gaijingai and Itachi round out the top 5.

Here are the full results for the year.  I have made it a little more complicated than usual, in order to compare to the final results for 2016 - as well as comparing to the results after September 2017.

REMEMBER regular brackets (   ) relate to last basho.  Curly brackets {   }  refer to last to last year {2016}.

So, it reads like this.

Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after September 2017) - {comparison to 2016 final position} - Rank on the November 2017 banzuke - {Rank on the November 2016 banzuke} - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points gain from after November 2017, basically November 2017 minus November 2016) - {comparison to total ZQoSA points for 2016}.

Hi everyone!

I have some good news.

The banzuke committee has started its discussion, and it has been decided to promote Jakusotsu to the rank of Ozeki.

He has met most of the basic guidelines for such a promotion (30 wins over his past three bashos, with the last basho being ranked at Sekiwake.)  His impressive yusho in September, followed by a solid 10 wins in his Sekiwake debut this basho were deciding factors.

The rijicho Jejima has sent Flohru and Kaimoitsuki round to Jakusotsu's heya to deliver the good news.

We look forward to reading Jakusotsu's promotion speech.

Hi everyone,

Here is the new Bench banzuke, put together by Jejima, Kaiomitsuki and Flohru.  (Kintamayama, Ekigozan and Asashosakari watched on).

It was fairly straight forward to put together.

Just a quick note regarding the sanyaku...

It is the Bench banzuke makers policy to have 8 members of sanyaku whenever possible.  With this in mind, it has long been established that 12-3 from M9, 11-4 from M7, 10-5 from M5, 9-6 from M3 and 8-7 from M1W does not guarantee a promotion to sanyaku if we already have 8 (or more) better candidates.  This is the reason why Gurowake finds himself ranked as a komusubi on the banzuke, but Saruyama does not.

All the best,

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Hi everybody!

Here is a message from Marushiki-zeki, chair of the Bench Sumo Yokozuna Deliberation Council.

All the best,

Jejima (BS rijicho)

Venerable Rijicho.
 
The BSYDC has met and had a brief discussion on Ozeki Rubensan. We are very pleased to see his excellent performance through the year.   

It has been decided that we should wait for the next Basho to see how he performs, then we will go into deliberations on if he is fit to promote to Yokozuna. 

We would like to offer him encouragement, to continue the fine form he has attained.

The BSYDC would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a safe and peaceful new year.

Marushiki (Chair YDC)
