Haru Basho 2017 - Day 15
Real drama on the real dohyo but things were fairly humdrum on the virtual one. Kaiomitsuki wrapped up a well-deserved yusho - his first Makuuchi one - with a fabulous 13-2 record and can look forward to a hefty boost in the rankings for May.
Chisaiyama took a day off today - probably due to a hangover from his yusho party on Saturday night - and lost but he still finished two wins clear of the field. Another first ever yusho.
Firsts are the definite theme of Haru Basho, with long-time leader Nantonoyama taking a maiden title on a tie-break despite losing today.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back in Tokyo in May.

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 14
Of the five main challengers, only Kaiomitsuki and Pandaazuma won, putting Kaiomitsuki firmly in the driving seat. There is still work to be done, however: If Kaiomitsuki beats Komusubi Norizo tomorrow, the tournament is his. If he loses and Takanosushi wins, it will go to a tie-break. As their scores are currently tied, points tomorrow may be crucial. Pandaazuma is unlikely to challenge even if he wins as he is five points off the pace.
Juryo is very simple to report: Congratulations to Chisaiyama, who easily wrapped things up with a three-win advantage.
Makushita also looks to be done and dusted. Nantonoyama is only pursued by one player: Barusho. But the points differential makes it highly likely that Nantonoyama is home and dry.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 13
In a very difficult day - reflected by the sub-five average score - all the leaders in Makuuchi lost, giving some slight hope to Haidouzo and Bill, who reached the ten-win mark. As once again all the main contenders are kept apart and in fact given losing-record-trending opponents on day 14, anything could happen.
Chisaiyama won again in Juryo and is now the firm favourite to lift the trophy. And Nantonoyama suffered the ignominy after a fantastic run to lose to a drone that featured Hakuho and Goeido in its team. Kazamidori, Toriazuma and Barusho will all be hoping for a repeat performance from the leader over the weekend.

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 12
In a game where the final winning score is usually 11 wins, it is remarkable indeed that two players have already reached that mark on day 12. Takanosushi and Kaiomitsuki march on, easily overcoming their sanyaku foes. Pandaazuma pursues doggedly one win behind.
In Juryo Chisaiyama got back to winning ways and now has a two win cushion between him his two closest rivals. And the Nanotoyama shows just rolls on and on. The perfect streak reaches 12. Three players are two wins behind, hoping against hope for a mishap.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/24

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 11
Of the leading trio, only Pandaazuma lost today, leaving Takanosushi and Kaiomitsuki clear at 10-1. Tomorrow all three main contenders are brought up the banzuke to face sanyaku opponents, and as none of the three have faced each other yet, direct head-to-head death matches may also occur as the basho comes to a close.
Chisaiyama lost in Juryo today but his closest challenger Saruyama was unable to take advantage, also losing a close bout.
Nantonoyama is still perfect in Makushita and is now two wins clear of the chasing pack.
And sadly Sekiwake Metzinowaka's ozeki run came to an end today. He now faces a battle to keep his rank, needing three wins in four days.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/22

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 9
Five of the leading group of seven won today and can celebrate an early winning record. Takanosushi has the slight advantage at this stage on points scored but he will still need to get the wins over the last six days in what could be a 12-3 or even 13-2 yusho line, a rarity in Sumo Game's top division.
Chisaiyama takes sole possession of the Juryo division lead, trailed by only two players one win off the pace. And in Makushita Nantonoyama stays perfect. Three players are just behind and hoping for a slip-up soon.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/20

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 8
Only one of the leading pack lost today, leaving an incredible seven players on 7-1 records. As the unfortunate loser (Komusubi Yassier) was the only sanyaku representative, we have an all-Maegashira front-running field...and with none of them facing each other on day nine, an almost unthinkable 7 winning records are up for grabs on day 9.
Chisaiyama and Kazemoto now lead Juryo after Saruyama's loss. And in Makushita, Nantonoyama keeps it perfect with an 8-0 Nakabi score.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/19

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 7
Sole leader Kaimoitsuki slipped up to allow no less than seven other players to share the lead with 6-1 records, including the only sanyaku representative, Komusubi Yassier.
Juryo is led by three 6-1 players: Saruyama, Chisaiyama and Kazemoto. Gawasukotto is the only trailer. And Makushita is led by the only remaining unbeaten player, Nantonoyama.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka's ozeki run got a much-needed boost with a win to improve to 3-4 but he now needs 7 wins out of 8 to be considered.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/19

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 4
Sekiwake Metzinowaka suffered another setback today thanks to overconfidence in Yokozuna Kakuryu and now needs 8/11 to be considered for ozeki promotion. The Makuuchi leaderboard of five now boasts no sanyaku players. Pandaazuma and Kuroimori are both within striking distance of sanyaku and will be hoping to keep up the good work.
In Juryo Achiyama fell to a loss into a large following group so things are very open there. And Makushita's unbeaten group has been whittled down to six hopefuls.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/15

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 3
Sekiwake Metzinowaka's ozeki run hit a roadblock today in the form of former Sekiwake Kotononami, who scored well to keep his perfect record intact.
In Juryo - very unusually - we already have a sole leader: Achiyama, who had one brief stint in Makuuchi, is showing promising signs of making a return. Makushita's leadership, on the other hand, is a shapeless blob of 12 players.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/3/14

Haru Basho 2017 - Day 2
Welcome all to the Haru Osaka tournament.
Congratulations to Sekiwake Natsunoyama, who is the highest ranked player for the first time in his career. In other sanyaku news, Sekiwake Metzinowaka is off to a promising start on an ozeki run. He needs 10 wins to be considered, but as one of the tournaments on his run was all the way down in mid-Maegashira, when he took a 12-3 yusho, a little more may be required to get the promotion nod.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka is joined in his perfect start by Komusubi Konosato along with 8 Maegashira fighters. The Juryo and Makushita races are still taking shape at this early stage.
Good luck to all the players!
