Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 4
Welcome to the Natsu basho!
Incredibly there are no unbeaten players in Makuuchi. An enormous group leads with three wins, including Yokozuna Pandaazuma, Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Sekiwake Survivor.
Chishafuwaku and Frinkanohana are early leaders in Juryo. An unbeaten group of six leads Makushita.
Good luck to all the players this tournament!

March Basho 2021 - Day 15
Kiriazuma won the Makuuchi death match with ease to secure a first Makuuchi yusho in his current incarnation. Kiriazuma used to be Kirinoumi, the game's first Yokozuna. With this victory he will be propelled into the Makuuchi jo'i and will have a chance to start working towards being the first player to reach the top rank twice. Congratulations!
In Juryo Cucumohana's nightmare came true as Mauji won the bout by the two clear points required to take the yusho on the second tie-break rule. Both will be in Makuuchi next tournament, Cucumohana for the first time, so that may serve as some consolation.
Ketsukai and Hakumadashi both emerged from the leading pack with wins but Ketsukai has a far superior score and therefore wins the yusho on that basis.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you in May for the Natsu basho.

March Basho 2021 - Day 14
Yusho favourite Rupatengu (by virtue of points scored) was slaughtered today and Chocshoporyu also lost. This allowed Kiriazuma to take the sole lead with 10 wins. He will face Rupatengu tomorrow in what amounts to a yusho play-off. If Kiriazuma wins, it will be a clear yusho. If Rupatengu wins, he will almost certainly take the yusho on a tie-break. There is a slight chance that another 9-5 winner could catch Rupatengu. The nearest is Yokozuna Pandaazuma, who is three points behind.
It's a similar story in Juryo. Leader Cucumohana will fight Mauji, who is one win behind. Mauji needs to win the bout by two clear points to take the yusho on a tie.
Makushita is very open. The most likely winners are Fujisan or Hakubayama, the highest scorers of the leaders. They don't fight each other tomorrow so every point will be vital.
Good luck to all the contenders!

March Basho 2021 - Day 13
Chocshoporyu was sole leader for a day but he lost and allowed Rupatengu and Kiriazuma back in the door. The trio lead with nine wins and two days remaining. Rupatengu has the advantage as he is the top scorer at this point.
In Juryo, Cucumohana won yet again and is now 12-1. Mauji kept up his stubborn pursuit one win behind. Ketsukai has lost two straight days so Makushita is now very open. No fewer than nine players now share the lead with 10-3 records.
In other news, Yokozuna Pandaazuma cleared his kadoban status after a strong recovery from a shaky start.
