Hatsu Basho 2021 - Day 15
Andoreasu lost on the final day but so did his rivals so it was a clear victory with 11 wins. That is his fourth Makuuchi yusho. Congratulations!
Chiyobobdog and Wakamasuto both won their final matches in Juryo. Chiyobobdog wins the tie with two more points scored that his rival. And Amakaze did the business for a second straight tournament in Makushita as he won his final bout and took advantage of Bakanonou's loss. He easily outscored the long-time leader and so wins on a 12-3 tie-break.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back here in March for the Haru Basho.

Hatsu Basho 2021 - Day 14
Andoreasu won again to take pole position on the final day. There are three players one win behind him but their scores are inferior so unless there is an improbable collapse, the veteran will win whatever happens tomorrow.
In Juryo there are four players leading with 9-5 records and they will all fight among themselves tomorrow. Chiyobobdog is the favourite in a tie as long as he wins his bout.
In Makushita, Bakanonou, the long-time leader, probably needs another win, as his two nearest challengers (Amakaze and Denki) fight each other and they both have superior scores to the leader. A special mention for Amakaze - the winner of the last tournament in Makushita - who has come back from three straight losses to win the last eleven days. Very impressive indeed. We all expect the talented Amakaze to reach Makuuchi in double-quick time.
Good luck to all the players tomorrow!

We are back down to four leaders in Makuuchi. Andoreasu, Flohru, Mananoyama and Hironoumi are all looking for early winning records tomorrow.
The two Juryo leaders Emiroo and Wakamasuto won and will also be hoping for kachikoshi tomorrow. And Bakanonou takes the sole lead of Makushita and is the only player to have a winning record.
