Hatsu Basho 2021 - Day 4
Welcome to the Hatsu Basho of 2021.
Kibooyama is on an ozeki run, needing 10 wins for promotion. He is off to a tricky 1-3 start though and will need to put a winning streak together soon.
Also, we welcome a gaming veteran back to sanyaku after an absence of over 11 years. Komusubi Yumezukuri is off to a 2-2 starting score.
Andoreasu and Rupatengu are our early leaders in Makuuchi. Wakamasuto is the sole leader of Juryo. And a group of nine hopefuls remain unbeaten in Makushita.
Good luck to all the players!

November Basho 2020 - Day 15
Bolo and Yumezukuri both won their final bouts AND finished with identical scores so the second tie-break rule was required to decide the winner. Bolo was the winner of their direct bout on day nine and so he emerged victorious in this thrilling finale.
In Juryo Kotosho won his final bout and that was enough to take the yusho with a 12-3 record. In Makushita, Amakaze slipped up on the final day while Balon won, but Amakaze's superior score was enough to carry the day.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you all back here in 2021.

November Basho 2020 - Day 14
Both Yumezukuri and Natsunoyama lost, allowing Bolo to enter the running. The first two fight each other tomorrow while Bolo will take on Sekiwake Trender. Natsunoyama is four points ahead of his rivals so a win for him will almost certainly guarantee yusho. A loss, however, will then depend on Bolo's score against Yumezukuri as they are both currently level.
In Juryo, Kotosho is one win and six points of his nearest rival and is therefore almost certainly the winner. It is a similar story in Makushita where Amakaze leads the field by one win and is also three points ahead of his nearest rival. Again, this looks promising for Amakaze.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Yumezukuri and Natsunoyama both won and maintained their lead. Both now have 10 wins.
It was the same story in Juryo: Both leaders (Unkonoyama and Kotosho) won and maintain their positions. And in Makushita we also have two leaders who won today: Amakaze and Pahomu.
