I went to Mamumamu's Rating Site to check on where the ladies stand (related to this thread). I was surprised to find that the September rating list (games through August end) has Ichiriki Ryo in the #1 slot. I was even more surprised that he and Iyama have been trading the #1 position back and forth for the last few months. The first time Ichiriki hit #1 (in May), he ended Iyama's run of 8 straight years at #1 on this list. The last time someone else held that position was April of 2011 when Cho U was at the top.

Meanwhile Fujisawa Rina has risen to #33 while up-and-comer Ueno Asami is at #72.

Below are the current top 20 plus the ladies. Remember that Mamumamu uses the Glicko rating system and that a difference of 1.0 means that the higher-rated player has an estimated 75% probability of winning.
Code:

Apparently Iyama got married again so maybe that's behind his recent (relatively) poor form.

Oh really? He is no longer with the shogi player (I forgot her name)?

Congrats to him, and hope he can regain his usual form soon.

Could be good news for his personal life, and bad news for his strength.

Murota Io

Acording to USGO-John Power...

Iyama’s second marriage: According to Go Weekly, Iyama Yuta got married for the second time on July 20. No details were given of his wife except to say that she is an “ordinary woman.” In Japanese newspaper jargon, that means that she is not a celebrity or a professional entertainer or sportswoman. Iyama was previously married to Murota Io, a shogi professional. They had the same birthday, May 24, 1989, so they got married on their birthday in 2012. However, they split up amicably in 2015, the reason being that they were unable to spend much time together. Iyama was traveling constantly for title games (a two-day game takes four days with travel on the day before and the day after the game and a one-day game may take three days). Murota was very popular with shogi fans and so she also spent a lot of time away from home.

Take care.
