Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 15
Well, the Kyushu Basho 2005 is now in the history books and it will be one that is talked about for a quite awhile. Asashoryu proved himself to be of 'legendary' status: 84 wins for the year, seven basho in a row, all six tournaments in the same year. Fantastic! Kotooshu proved that he is worthy of an Ozeki promotion after going 11-4 and defeating a Yokozuna and an Ozeki in the process.
In Sumo Game, Komusubi Igiski had already locked up the Makunouchi Yusho on day 14 and also picked up Ginosho and Shukunsho special prizes. WM5 Sashimaru received a Ginosho and Kantosho to add to impressive resume. WM8 Mariohana receives the Kantosho. Ozeki Ekigozan avoided a kadoban by pulling off a senshuraku victory against his opponent. Ozeki Kitamayama, however, finished the tournament with a 7-8 mark and will be kadoban for the New Years Tournament.
In Juryo, a senshuraku loss of leader WJ2 Oshirokita by EJ7 Tosahayate forced a three way playoff that included EJ1 Hermanosho. Hermanosho won the yusho based on total points with 106 over Tosahayate's 100 and Oshirokita's 99. Hermanosho will return to the makunouchi division next tournament and, more than likely, Oshirokita will be promoted as well.
In Makushita, no playoff was necessary as Wm28 Mimawari improved to an excellent 14-1 record, tops of the leader board. Wm17 Kibooyama received a jun yusho with his 13-2 mark.
Thanks for playing everyone and we look forward to seeing you in 2006!

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 14
On day 14 of the Kyushu Basho, Komusubi Igiski picked up his fourth Makunouchi Yusho even though there is still one day remaining in the tournament. With Igiski's victory over EM1 Kaenkamiko and the losses by WM5 Sashimaru, EM7 Asashimaru and WM13 Kofuji, Igiski now has a two match lead over the field; an unsurmountable lead.
In Juryo, WJ12 Oshirokita (11-3) has a one match lead going into senshuraku. If Oshirokita wins on day 15 then he will pick up the yusho. If he loses, it will force a three way playoff with EJ7 Tosahayate (10-4), his opponent for the day, and the winner of the match between EJ1 Hermansho (10-4) and WJ11 Heruwejima (10-4).
In Makushita, Wm28 Mimawari is still the sole leader with a 13-1 record. Wm17 Kibooyama and Em47 Huumi are one match off the pace at 12-2. If Mimawari wins on day 15 then he will pick up the yusho outright, but if he loses it will force a playoff between himself and the winner of the Kibooyama-Huumi head-to-head match.
Good luck!

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 13
After 13 days of the Kyusho Basho 2005 things are starting to heat up in all divisions.
In Makunouchi, Komusubi Igiski (10-3) dropped his second match in three days to allow the field to tighten up considerably One loss behind are WM5 Sashimaru, EM7 Asashimaru and WM13 Kofuji. Of the three at 9-4, WM5 Sashimaru is in the best position for any upsets in the yusho chase since his daily scoring average has kept pace with Igiski throughout the tournament.
In Juryo, WJ2 Oshirokita contiues to set the pace at 10-3 with EJ1 Hermanosho, EJ7 Tosahayate and WJ11 Heruwejima at 9-4.
In Makushita, Wm28 Mimawari (12-1) assumed sole leadership after Wm17 Kibooyama was defeated by Em17 Aobasnoniji 5-3. Kibooyama falls to 11-2 and is sitting together with Wm33 Perezohana and Em47 Huumi who are also at 11-2.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 12
On Day 12 of the Kyushu Basho, Asashoryu picked up his 82 win for the year tying him with Kitanoumi. With three days to go in the tournament, it seems highly probable that Asashoryu will break the record before senshuraku. Kotooshu also won today which puts him in a good spot to satisfy the requirements for Ozeki promotion but he has some difficult matches ahead of him going into the final weekend.
In Sumo Game, Komusubi Igiski went to 10-2 after defeating Ozeki Kintamayama and once again has a two match lead over the rest of the field. Yokozuna Doitsuyama picked up his kachikoshi today and is one of six hoping that Igiski stumbles down the stretch.
In Juryo, WJ2 Oshirokita improved his mark to 9-3 and has emerged the sole leader. He is followed by a sizable group at 8-4. In Makushita, Wm17 Kibooyama and Wm28 Mimawari got back on the winning track today and are both 11-1

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 11
Asashoryu moved one step closer today to cementing his name firmly in the short list for all time great Yokozunas. With his win today over Tamanoshima he now has 81 victories for the year and puts him in a tie with legendary Taiho. With a win tomorrow he could tie Kitanoumi's all time best of 82. Going into the final four days of the tournament with a two match lead over his nearest competitor, Chiyotaikai, Asashoryu looks as if he will become the first Yokozuna to ever win all six tournaments in the same year and also become the first to win seven yusho in a row.
In Sumo Game action today Komusubi Igiski dropped his second match of the tournament to fall to 9-2. He now has a one match lead over WM13 Kofuji who picked up his kachikoshi today. Kofuji has a difficult match on day 12 with WM5 Sashimaru who is having a strong tournament, scoring 85 points so far.
In Juryo, WJ2 Oshirokita, WJ10 Fujisan and WJ11 Heruwejima all picked up their kachikoshi today and are co-leaders at 8-3.
In Makushita, Wm17 Kibooyama and Wm28 Mimawari lost today and are now 10-1 along with Em47 Huumi who has been lurking in the wings for the last few days waiting for an opportunity to join the yusho hunt.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 10
Day 10 action saw a good overall average of 7.05 which would have been at least one point higher if it wasn't for Kotooshu's upset loss. Nearly 94% of the Sumo Game participants added Kotooshu high up on their list. The overall average for the tournament remains a historical best at 6.71.
In Makunouchi after 10 days East Komusubi (9-1) now a two match lead over his nearest rivals and is still on course for a record points total for a basho. One more point worth noting is that if Igiski picks up the yusho it would be his forth. However, let's not get ahead of ourselves too much since we still have five days remaining in the Kyushu Basho.
In Juryo, co-leader WJ2 Oshirokita lost today to EJ1 Hermanosho and the other co-leader WJ2 Heruwejima was upset by WJ10 Fujisan. As result, all four particpants are now sitting together in the top spot with a 7-3 record.
In Makushita, their were no changes in the leaderboard. Both Wm17 Kibooyama and Wm28 Mimawari are still perfect at 10-0 with Em47 Huumi one match off the pace at 9-1.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Days 8 and 9
Nine days into the Kyushu Basho 2005 and the overall average for the tournament remains very high at 6.67. As of now, it is an all time high with six days to go. One wrestler that is helping to skew the average upwards is Makunouchi leader Komusubi Igiski. Not only does he have the division best record at this point, but he is on a blistering pace with 71 points or a 7.89 average, which could put him high up on the list for most points in a basho. Following closely behind Igiski are EM3 Sentoriazuma and EM6 Lesoshoryu at 7-2.
In Juryo, early leader WJ2 Oshirokita lost on Nakabi but got back into the win column today with a victory over EJ11 Frinkanohana and is now the co-leader at 7-2 along with WJ11 Heruwejima. Heruwejima has a very impressive six match winning streak going into day 10.
In Makushita, Wm17 Kibooyama and Wm28 Mimawari are still undefeated at 9-0 and are one match ahead of Em47 Huumi who lost on day 8.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 7
As we complete the first week of the Kyushu Basho, the haves and have nots are starting to distance themselves. In Makunouchi, Komusubi Igiski sits alone at the top of the leader board with a 6-1 followed by a pack of five at 5-2 including Yokozuna Doitsuyama. WJ2 Oshirokita continues to dominate in Juryo with at 6-1. EJ1 Hermanosho, who hopes to return to the top division next tournament, is one match off the pace as is WJ6 Unagiyutaka, WJ10 Fujisan and WJ11 Heruwejima. In Makushita Wm17 Kibooyama, Wm28 Mimawari and Em47 Huumi are still perfect at 7-0.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Days 5 and 6
After six days of action the Kyushu Basho is shaping up to be a very high scoring affair. So far the overall average for the tournament is 6.68 which makes it the highest on record for Sumo Game. In all probability, however, the scoring will decrease in the second week as the sumo kyokai begins power matching the top rikishi and we have to start digging in the lower Maegashira for a resonable pick.
In the Makunouchi division WM5 Sashimaru dropped his first match on day 5 after an early winning streak. On day 6 he got back into winning form and now finds himself in a four way tie with Komusubi Igiski, EM3 Sentoriazuma and EM6 Lesoshoryu. Yokozuna Doitsuyama surrendered his first kinboshi on day 5 to EM7 Asashimaru but still has a strong record at 4-2.
In Juryo, WJ2 Oshirokita is now on top of the leader board with a 5-1 mark followed by a sizeable pack of seven others with two losses. In Makushita things have settled to the point where we can throw a few names out: Wm5 Fuseigou, Wm17 Kibooyama, Wm28 Mimawari and Em47 Huumi are still perfect at 6-0. Wm23 Mishu (4-2) was the only wrestler today to score a perfect 10 nearly 3 points above today's overall average of 7.11.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 4
Scoring for day four of the Kyushu Basho saw a very high overall average at 8.05, good enough to place it as the eighth highest for scoring in Sumo Game history. A total of 23 wrestlers achieved perfection today, including WM5 Sashimaru who now finds himself as the sole leader in the Makunouchi division after upending Sekiwake Sumio 10-8.
The Juryo division also saw a significant drop off in the leader board with WJ10 Fujisan still undefeated at 4-0. Makushita is still unsettled with 13 at 4-0 including newcomer to the sport Em87 Ganzohnesushi.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 3
After three days of action the Kyushu Basho is starting to take form both on the dohyo and in Sumo Game. Although it is slightly depressing to see empty stands in Fukuoka, the tournament has been very exciting so far. Asashoryu looks as if he is well on his way to setting the record books ablaze with his high-octane sumo. If he wins this tournament he will not only become the first rikishi to win seven tournaments in a row, but will become the first to win all six tournaments in the same year. Kotooshu looked good today manhandling former Ozeki Dejima and appears to have shaken, at least for today, the pressure of having risen so far, so quickly.
In the Makunouchi division of Sumo Game, Yokozuna Doitsuyama has recovered nicely from his upset loss on shonichi by Komusubi Igiski and now finds himself at 2-1. Igiski, on the other hand, remains undefeated after three days and is co-leader along with West Komusubi Dilettante and three others. In Juryo, five are tied at 3-0 and in Makushita the early log jam at the top consists of 18 people.

Kyushu Basho 2005 - Day 1
Welcome to the Kyushu Basho 2005!
Although we had a slow start with the banzuke and sign-up we still managed to pull in a total of 184 diehard participants for November classic. This tournament we have Doitsuyama debuting as Sumo Game's third Yokozuna and Ekigozan as a Shin-Ozeki.
Scoring for the first day was somewhat low with an overall average at 6.13 due to the major upset of Kotooshu who was chosen by 91% of the wrestlers. WJ2 Oshirokita, Wm17 Kibooyama and Em21 Aderechelseamaru managed to start off the tournament with a strong 9 points.
Good luck to everyone and have a good tournament!
