Aki Basho 2004 - Day 15
The battle is over and the dust has settled.
In the Makuuchi Division, Rannohana squeaked by Feginowaka to claim his second yusho. With 12 or more wins in the next basho, and he will be eligible for promotion. Go Rannohana!
In Juryo, Anjoboshi demolished Remonishiki to claim his first yusho.
In Makushita, Tominishiki won his final match to go to 13-2 and won his first yusho after 2 jun-yusho.
After a high-scoring opening day, the tournament settled down. Ultimately the tournament average was 5.86 overall, a relatively normal tournament.
I guess the pressure was too much for Tochinonada today. And the final match between Asashoryu and Kaio was an epic!
Congratulations to all and hope to see you all at the next basho.

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 14
With today's loss for W Sekiwake Rannohana (10-4) and a victory for WM14 Feginowaka (10-4) we have a very easy scenerio for Day 15 and the Makunouchi Yusho: 'Winner Take All', since Rannohana and Feginowaka will meet each tomorrow on the final day of Aki Basho. In Makushita we have the same situation between Wm4 Tominishiki and Wm21 Fujisan, since both are 12-2 and meeting each other tomorrow for the Yusho.
In Juryo, we have a more complicated story that has unfolded: First off, we have a head to head match up with EJ9 Anjoboshi (10-4) and EJ13 Remonishiki (10-4), with the winner of this bout waiting for the final word from the bout between EJ5 Nemosima and WJ4 Lesoshoryu who is 9-5. If Lesoshoryu wins then the Anjoboshi-Remonishiki bout also becomes a 'winner take all' struggle. However, if Nemosima wins then it could come down to total points for the tournament. If the total points between Nemosima and Remonishiki are the same then the Juryo Yusho would favor Nemosima due to a head to head match on day five in which Nemosima was victorious. If Anjoboshi wins and Nemosima wins then the total number would favor Nemosima since he has outscored Anjoboshi 91-86 after 14 days.

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 13
Rannohana retains his lead in the Makuuchi division with a win over Takahike. 3 players are still hot on his heels!
In Juryo, Nemoshima lost to Konosato to drop out of a tie for first place. Anjoboshi is now the sole leader after 13 days, but it's still not over!
In Makushita, it's become a two man race - Fujisan at 12-1 and Tominishiki at 11-2.

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 12
In Day 12 action we find W Sekiwake Rannohana continuing to lead the top division with a 9-3 mark followed by 5 wrestlers with 4 losses. Ozeki candidate Flohru lost today making it necessary for him to win in the remaining three days to satisfy the minimum 10 win requirement for possible promotion.
In Juryo, EJ5 Nemosima and EJ9 Anjoboshi are tied with three loss each. In Makushita, Wm4 Tominishiki and Wm21 Fujisan are riding on sizeable winning streaks and have an equal 11-1 mark.
Decision making will become more difficult in the remaining three days of the tournament as the upper Sanyaku Rikishi begin battling each other for the Aki Basho Yusho. Naturally, this means having solid picks among the rank and file Rikishi all the more important.
by Nushuzan, 2004/9/24

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 11
In Makuuchi, Rannohana won a close one over Sentoriazuma to take sole lead with a 9-2 record. Ekigozan and Tamanogojima are one back at 8-3.
In Juryo, Nemoshima, Anjoboshi, and Takashoryu are tied for the lead at 8-3 and in Makushita Tominishiki, Fujisan, and Ryukaze are tied for first.
The packs are slowly thinning out, and the races are getting close!

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 10
As we begin the homestretch in the Aki Basho, matters will become more complicated as the top Rikishi begin to battle each other. With the withdraw of both Ozeki Musoyama and Tochiazuma, Sumo Game gets, perhaps, a one day rest before some serious decision making begins.
In day ten action we find W Sekiwake Rannohana and WM5 Ekigozan neck and neck for the lead with two losses. Ozeki candidate Flohru has recovered nicely from a slow start and is one loss behind the leaders, as is WM9 Tamanaogijima and EM11 Heitaikai.
In Juryo, no less than 6 wrestlers are tied with a 7-3 mark. In Makushita, Gibmaatsuki lost his first bout of the tournament to allow a five way tie for the lead at 9-1. Newcomers Wm62 Zamanoshima and Wm65 Ryukaze are out to prove they are a serious threat to the Sumo Game establishment.

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 9
Coming into the second half of the tournament, E Makushita Gibmaatsuki won to keep his record perfect at 9-0.
In Makuuchi, Sekiwake Rannohana and Maegashira Ekigozan both won to stay on top at 7-2. 7 wrestlers are breathing on their backs with 6 wins.
In Juryo, Remonishiki lost and is now in a two-way tie for first place with Lesoshoryu.
With Kyokushuzan losing, the Aki Basho has become anyone's tournament. This is by far the most exciting tournament in a long time!
by Kishbono, 2004/9/21

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 8
At Nakabi only one wrestler in Sumo Game remains undefeated. Em21, Gibmaatsuki leads the Makushita division with a perfect mark, followed closely by 8 others with one loss. Things are a little more muddled in the top division with Rannohana, Ekigozan, Kamakiri and Tamanaogijima all tied with a 6-2 mark. WM5 Ekigozan was leading the Aki Basho but had allowed the other three to catch up with him after dropping his second straight. In Juryo, EJ13 Remonishiki takes over as the sole leader with one loss after EJ9 Anjoboshi lost to EJ14 Gunterao. Both wrestlers are one back of Remonishiki, as is EJ5 Nemosima.
by Nushuzan, 2004/9/20

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 6
With an upset win over East Ozeki Takahike today, WM5 Ekigozan continues to lead the Makunouchi division with a perfect 6-0 mark. Ekigozan is followed closely by E Komosubi Yuko and WM8 Zenjimoto each with one loss. It should be noted at this point in the tournament that the combined win-loss record of all the Sanyaku wrestlers is a mere 21-21.
In Juryo 4 wrestlers are tied with a 5-1 record. In Makushita both Tomonishiki and Gibmaatsuki won today to remain undefeated and co-leaders.
by Nushuzan, 2004/9/17

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 5
With Asashoryu (96% of the players selecting) losing, it put a wrench in some player's plans. Congratulations to Iwakiyama for his first kinboshi!
Ekigozan squeaked by Kaenkamiko to remain undefeated in Makuuchi. 4 players (Yuko, Zenjimoto, Feginowaka, and Tenkuukaikatsu) following with one loss.
In Juryo Darkanishiki won over Heruwejima to claim his first victory. In Makushita, Tominishiki and Gibmaatsuki won to remain at a perfect 5-0.
by Kishbono, 2004/9/17

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 4
With only 3 of the 10 most selected Rikishi winning today, Sumo Game was thrown into chaos with one of its lowest scoring days in its history. As a result, the overall average today was a frigid 4.29. WM5 Ekigozan survived the carnage to remain undefeated becoming the sole leader in Makunouchi after four days of action. E Sekiwake Flohru dropped his third bout in four days to put his possible promotion to Ozeki in serious jeopardy.
Meanwhile, in Juryo, Shin-Juryo Remonishiki jumped on top the leader board in that division after 4 days with a perfect 4-0 mark. In Makushita, things have begun to thin out with 5 wrestlers, including Wm4 Tominishiki, tied for the top spot.
by Nushuzan, 2004/9/15

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 3
Sekiwake Rannohana leads a pack of 4 wrestlers with a perfect 3-0 record in the Makunouchi Division.
Asashoryu, Kaio, and Chiyotaikai seem really strong this basho. On the other hand, Musoyama and Wakanosato seem to be really struggling.
With 99% of the players choosing Asashoryu, making the selection and positioning of the other wrestlers may decide the outcome of many matches.
by Kishbono, 2004/9/15

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 2
Scoring cooled off in the second day of the Aki Basho (6.21 average) due mostly from the loss of 4 of the top most selected wrestlers. As a result, W Sekiwake Rannohana leads a pack of rikishi that includes E Komosubi Yuko who obtained a victory after crushing WM6 Kamakiri. E Ozeki Takahike dropped his second straight as did E Sekiwake Flohru. Ozeki candidate Flohru needs to secure 10 wins for a possible promotion to Sumo's second highest rank.
In Juryo, co-leader and former Makunouchi wrestler J4 Lesoshoryu(2-0) hopes to have a strong tournament and return to the top division. In Makushita a total of 28 wrestlers have managed to notch their second win.
by Nushuzan, 2004/9/14

Aki Basho 2004 - Day 1
Day 1 of the Aki Basho was a high-scoring affair with 18 players scoring a perfect 10 and 56 players scoring 9 points. Overall scoring was a whopping 8.19 points per player!
But among the Sanyaku wrestlers, only W Sekiwake Rannohana and E Komusubi Yuko managed to win.
Nagoya Basho yusho wrestlers Gaijingai, Hermanosho, and Kiwishiki all started with victories.
If the first day is any indication, this basho may turn out to be one of the highest scoring tournaments of the Sumo Game!
