Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 15
There was real drama at the top of Makuuchi today as Sekiwake Oskanohana finally lost a tie-break, his first after nine straight TB wins. This let in Komusubi Randomitsuki, Natsunoyama and Maiku, who all excelled today with high-scoring 9s. Oskanohana and Natsunoyama were eliminated under the first tie-break rule, as while they had the same 11-4 records, their scores were lower than those of Randomitsuki and Maiku. The remaining two wrestlers stayed deadlocked because both have 115 points and again on the NEXT tie-break rule because they both have 10 days with scores above 8. The yusho was finally decided on the fourth tie-break rule: the least number of scores below 5 - Maiku had one but Randomitsuki had none! Incredible stuff and heartbreaking for Maiku. If it had gone to the next tie-break rule (perfect days), they would have tied as well...meaning the yusho would finally have been decided randomly.
Oskanohana also fell just short of ozeki promotion and is unlikely to get leniency after posting a relatively low points score. However, he has a strong record to build on and his ozeki run is still very much alive for the next basho.
The Juryo yusho also required a play-off but this was decided clearly on points scored in favour of Chishafuwaku. Not to be outdone, the Makushita division needed a play-off too. Gurowake just pipped Tsuchinoninjin and Wuli on points.
Congratulations to all the winners and see you in July for the Nagoya tournament.

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 14
Sekiwake Oskanohana overcame Bill in an exciting bout that went all the way and kept his yusho and ozeki promotion hopes alive, but he'll need to overcome Ozeki Tosahayate to do it. Five players are hoping for a slip-up from Oskanohana, but only three have a realistic chance of winning if it comes to a play-off: Komusubi Randomitsuki, Bill and Maiku all have 106 points so scoring well on senshuraku could be crucial.
Juryo is between three players and Chishafuwaku is in the driving seat on points after defeating Hakubayama today. A win for Chishafuwaku tomorrow will almost certainly guarantee him the yusho, but a loss will hand it to either Hakubayama or Terarno, who face each other.
Makushita is a five-way free-for-all. Wins for Gurowake, Nekotaikai or Tsuchinoninjin would make it extremely likely the title will be in their hands of one of these, the best three scorers.
Good luck to all the players on the final day!

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 13
There was some major drama in the Makuuchi yusho race as both leaders lost, allowing Komusubi Randomitsuki and five other players back into the race. It's anybody's guess now, but Randomitsuki and Bill with their score advantages are now in pole position for the title.
Hakubayama retains sole lead of Juryo and faces close challenger Chishafuwaku today. Both have likely done enough for shin-Makuuchi promotion next tournament so the yusho would just be the icing on the cake. And the Makushita race was thrown wide open when sole leader Nekotaikai was defeated. At least 8 hopefuls will be battling for the championship over the weekend.

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 11
Sekiwake Oskanohana took down veteran gamer Norizo today to improve to 10-1 and is looking very strong for both the yusho and ozeki promotion. Closest rival Bill is one win behind, with three other hopefuls on 8 wins.
In Juryo Hakubayama is now in the sole lead at 8-3. Gurowake and cat fan Nekotaikai lead the pack in Makushita with 9 wins.
Finally, we are sad to note that Ozeki Tosahayate fell to a losing record today and will be demoted to sekiwake in July. He will have one chance for re-promotion if he secures 10 wins in the Nagoya tournament.

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 8
Sekiwake Oskanohana marched on to record an impressive nakabi kachikoshi and is the only unbeaten player left in all three divisions. The second week will be crucial as he faces tougher opponents and will have to get past the majority of them to close in on the yusho and ozeki promotion. Bill and Kitakachiyama are clinging on with 7-1 records.
Juryo now has two leaders, both with 6-2 records. Takanoshushi and Terarno are the two hopefuls. And Gurowake still leads Makushita along with Hayaikaze and Nekotaikai. Meow!
After a loss today Ozeki Tosahayate (3-5) now has to win five of the last seven bouts to retain his rank. Good luck to him.
by Pandaazuma, 2015/5/18

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 7
Sekiwake Oskanohana stayed perfect and remains on course for promotion to ozeki, although there is still a lot of work to do as he needs another 5 wins. His second week fighting his fellow sanyaku will be crucial. Kitakachiyama is the only other 7-0 player, and Bill is one win off the pace.
Terarno leads Juryo alone with 6 wins. And a group of seven wrestlers lead Makishita, including rising star Gurowake.
by Pandaazuma, 2015/5/17

Natsu Basho 2015 - Day 3
Sekiwake Oskanohana has had an impressive start to his ozeki run and is undefeated along with eight other players. Sekiwake Kogaratsu got his first win today but is up against it now for his own potential promotion. Good news for Ozeki Tosahayate, though - he is 2-1 and on course for the winning record he needs to keep his rank.
We have a very early sole leader in Juryo: Terarno is the only wrestler unscathed after three days of bruising action. And nine hopefuls remain undefeated in Makushita.

Natsu Basho 2014 - Day 1
Welcome one and all to the Natsu Basho. We have some exciting prospects in Sumo Game. First, Sekiwake Kogaratsu and Sekiwake Oskanohana are both on Ozeki runs. Kogaratsu needs 11 wins to be considered for promotion, while Oskanohana needs 12. Sekiwake Konosato was also on an Ozeki run but is sadly absent this tournament and will be demoted slightly for the Nagoya Basho. Oskanohana got off to a winning start with an easy win on day one, but Kogaratsu walked into a very strong line-up and is 0-1.
This is not the only drama: our sole Ozeki Tosahayate is also in jeopardy and he needs 8 wins to keep his rank. He got off to a bad start on day one but the basho is young.
Some information: a new feature is now available on Sumo Game that may be very useful for players who do not watch sumo live and check their results later. It is now possible to hide your results. Please check this bout page to illustrate:
