Hello UDH Players,

welcome to the UDH R.O.Y. of 2018. 


This time we have a newcomer to the
UDH Hall of Fame. He was once among the top ten of the year (#7 in 2013)
and  had  three  near  top  ten  results. Ladies and gentlemen, your UDH
Rikishi of the Year is

    Susanoo!

After two years of sub-65 wins we are back to at least 68 wins that were
necessary  to  win  this  competition.  But we are still waiting for the
first all-kachi-koshi year since 2013. A dismal May prevented our winner
from doing so.

Second  ranked  Kitsunegari  even missed out this feat by just one point
(one  single loss by his selections), which would not only brought him a
nicer 8-7 in March and but also the joint leadership.

All  in  all  there  were  only seven players with five kachi-koshi this
year,  and  only two of them could drive all of them into double-digits.
Another eleven players got at least four positive records in 2017.

The only player to get more than one top three finishes in 2017 (i.e. to
collect  more than one yusho or jun-yusho) was Susanoo. There were other
prize  combinations  though,  as the Hira-sho for the best Maegashira of
the basho was a "supplement prize" throughout the year as it came with a
yusho  or  jun-yusho  in  all  six  basho. The Ryo-sho (best Juryo) came
combined  once  and  alone  five times. The Shin-sho (best newcomer) did
come alone all the time, but was handed out only three times.

The following table includes every player who was listed on at least one
banzuke during the year 2018.
