Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 15
If you're on an ozeki run, it's always nice to win a yusho along the way. Yumezukuri put the cherry on the cake as Reeeen faltered (courtesy of Hakuho) at the last hurdle.
Jakusotsu won the death match in Juryo to take the divisional title. And Balon came through on the final day to win the Makushita division.
No tie-breaks required this time in any division - a rarity.
We'll be back in September with a new ozeki (pending the gamesmaster's approval of course). In the meantime, I'd like to remind players that this game has an excellent stats page that you can access from the main page. It has detailed stats on everything you can think of, including yearly stats on top of career and tournament ones. Spend some time navigating and see how you match up with your peers.
See you in two months. And congratulations to all the winners.

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 14
A dramatic day in the Makuuchi yusho race, but before we cover that, congratulations are in order for Sekiwake Yumezukuri as he has now achieved the 31 wins in three tournaments required for ozeki promotion with a day to spare. This will be his second stint at the rank.
He won today to go 11-3 while leader Reeeen lost (after an 11-bout winning streak) to delay the yusho verdict until the final day. He now leads with Yumezukuri and fights Komusubi Asashimaru tomorrow. A win for Reeeen would likely give him the yusho as he has a 4-point advantage over Yumezukuri. Yumezukuri will probably need to beat the yokozuna and hope Reeeen loses to take the title. Yokozuna Pandaazuma has a 10-4 record so he needs to beat Yumezukuri and hope Reeeen loses, where he would then win by virtue of his superior scoring.
Jakusotsu is now the sole leader of Juryo but he fights Unkonoyama, who is one win behind, tomorrow. Unkonoyama is also only one point (in scoring terms) behind so he would need to beat Jakusotsu by at least one point to take the yusho. The other contenders are unlikely to figure as their scores are a little too low.
Balon and Ufoshin lead Makushita with 12-2 records. Balon has a very high score so as long as he gets the same result as Ufoshin, he will win the yusho. Ufoshin's only hope is to win his bout while Balon loses his.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 13
Sekiwake Yumezukuri walked into a wall in the form of fellow Sekiwake Rupatengu today while co-leader Reeeen had an easy day at the office. Reeeen is now in pole position for a first-ever Makuuchi yusho, but still needs to get past stiff sanyaku opposition to seal the deal.
Jakusotsu and Unkonoyama both won to stay in the lead in Juryo. Chelseayama and Huchimama are right on their tails. The complicated dance continues in Makushita - the division is now led by Balon, Oyama and Ufoshin.

Nagoya Basho 2021 - Day 12
Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Reeeen came through their day-12 tests and now lead Mauji by one win.
Unkonoyama and Jakusotsu lead Juryo with 9 wins. Some drama in Makushita as Kaito lost and allowed four chasers a share of the lead.
