Aki Basho 2022 - Day 15
Sumio came through the final test to pick up his twelfth win and a record seventh Makuuchi yusho. Chocshoporyu will be wondering why he wasn't matched up directly with the yusho leader as he would have won his first ever Makuuchi yusho if he had been. He will have to be content with a jun yusho and a ginosho as well as a nice bump up the rankings for Kyushu.
In Juryo Hironoumi won while Kazemoto lost so it is Hironoumi's first yusho in any division since he joined in 2005! Congratulations!
And in Makushita there could only be one winner. Asapedroryu has dominated from the start and his 14th win today gave him a maiden yusho and possible promotion to Juryo in November!
Congratulations to all the winners! See you back here for the Kyusho basho.

Aki Basho 2022 - Day 14
Sumio won again and is now the hot favourite to win as he also tops the scoring charts. A win for him tomorrow will give him a seventh Makuuchi yusho. A loss could allow some contenders in but only Chocshoporyu and Asashimaru (two and three points behind respectively) have a chance of catching the leader.
Juryo is between Kazemoto and Hironoumi. They are not fighting each other tomorrow and Kazemoto has a huge points advantage so a win for him would give him the yusho. Hironoumi has to win and hope his rival loses.
Asapedroryu still leads Makushita with 13 wins. A win tomorrow will bring the trophy home. Even if he loses, his closest rival is three points behind, so it would take a minor miracle for him to lose it from here.
Looking at the banzuke, none of our ozeki hopefuls will satisfy the promotion criteria this time.
Good luck to all the yusho contenders!

Aki Basho 2022 - Day 13
Of the four leaders only veteran player Sumio came through with a win and he now leads all alone with a 10-3 record. With his fine scoring, he has a golden chance to go top of the all-time Makuuchi yusho charts. One more win may well be enough.
Juryo leader Hironoumi lost today and this allowed Kazemoto back into a share of the 10-3 lead. And in Makushita Asapedroryu finally succumbed to defeat. He still remains in sole possession of the lead.
Two more days. Good luck to all the players on the final weekend!

Aki Basho 2022 - Day 12
The Makuuchi leaders mostly had a good day. Four players have nine wins and all have a good chance of taking home the big prize.
Hironoumi leads Juryo with ten wins. And Asapedroryu in Makushita is hoping to join a very exclusive club: the zensho yusho winner. It has happened before, but only in the third division.
Best of luck!
