Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 15
In Makuuchi all three yusho contenders lost so Sekiwake Pandaazuma secured his third Makuuchi yusho with an 11-4 record.
As expected, Juryo ended in a tie-break and Kazutoyama's superior score carries him to a yusho in his second-division debut. In Makushita, Benihana lost but so did Yuko so it's a yusho in only his second tournament.
Congratulations to all the winners. We hope to see you all back in July for the Nagoya tournament.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/28

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 14
Sekiwake Pandaazuma won again and now only has one serious rival for the yusho in Flohru, who must win tomorrow and hope for a Pandaazuma loss. As Flohru is two points ahead, he has an advantage in the above scenario. Chishafuwaku also has ten wins but his points total is a little low, meaning he'd need an incredible score.
The Juryo race is very open and exciting with no less than seven players in the mix. Oshirokita is in pole position with his points total of 103 so a win for him would be enough. A loss would really set the cat amongst the pigeons.
In Makushita Benihana leads but may need to beat Fujisan as Yuko is one win behind with a vastly superior score.
Good luck to all the players on the final day!

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 13
Sekiwake Pandaazuma won his seventh straight to retain the lead in the Makuuchi yusho race. Five pursuers will be supporting Sekiwake Yassier in his bout tomorrow.
Oshirokita and Hesokso are battling it out in Juryo with nine wins. And Yuko has embarked upon a new unwanted streak with her second straight loss. Benihana probably can't believe his luck as he takes the sole lead.
Ozeki run update: Sekiwake Pandaazuma now has 31 wins in three basho while at the game's third highest rank, meaning he can now be considered for promotion.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/26

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 12
In Makuuchi, Sekiwake Pandaazuma took possession of the sole lead. Eight players are one win behind, waiting for a slip-up.
In Juryo the two leaders lost so it's a free-for all. And in Makushita, Yuko finally lost, but it was an unlucky one. Benihana won't be complaining though. It's now at least a two-horse race.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/26

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 11
The Makuuchi leaderboard thinned out somewhat today leaving Sekiwake Pandaazuma in the lead along with Yamashiro and Randomitsuki. A huge chasing pack of eleven is right on their tail.
In Juryo Oshirokita lost allowing Mmikazasuma in. And as usual Yuko won her bout in Makushita and is now 11-0. Benihana waits patiently for a slip in second place.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/24

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 10
A dramatic day on the virtual dohyo saw both leaders lose, making things very open indeed. Seven players now vie for the yusho with 7-3 records, including the only sanyaku representative, Sekiwake Pandaazuma.
Frinkanohana lost his bout in Juryo allowing Oshirokita to take the sole lead with a day-ten kachi-koshi. And in Makushita, the majestic Yuko marches on with her perfect record.
Ozeki run update: It should be noted that Sekiwake Pandaazuma's ozeki run has an asterix next to it, in that only one basho of the run has been in sanyaku. The rules state that 'Usually, a sekiwake who has won 31 or more bouts over the last three tournaments is promoted to ozeki'. As this is an unusual case, the promotion is likely (quite rightly) to be treated more strictly than usual. In the plus column for the Panda, however, is that in both tournaments outside the sanyaku, he faced ten sanyaku rikishi (five in each). ;) The sekiwake needs 3 wins in the final five days for consideration.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/23

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 9
It was Kaiowaka's turn to slip up today, although it wasn't really his fault as he ran into the only nine-pointer of the game - a remarkable line-up from Hironoumi. Randomitsuki took his chance and is back in the joint lead with a 7-2 record. Eight pursuers boast 6-3 records, including Sekiwake Pandaazuma and Komusubi Gurowake, who fight each other on day 10.
Oshirokita and Frinkanohana share the lead in Juryo. And Yuko keeps up her amazing streak to stay perfect. She also stands alone with the highest score so far.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/22

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 8
Randomitsuki faltered today, allowing Kaiowaka to take the sole lead with a 7-1 record. He is joined in second place by Yamashiro, who has been quietly racking up the wins and has a good score too.
Juryo is led by four players now, including spoon warrior Saruyama. And Yuko wins again for a day-eight winning record. Her pursuers number only two.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/22

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 7
Former Ozeki Randomitsuki posted a fine score to take joint ownership of the lead with a 6-1 record. Three wrestlers are in pursuit, including Komusubi Gurowake.
Juryo is now very open with a leading group of seven. And one of the games long-time veterans, former Komusubi Yuko, is the sole (and unbeaten) leader of Makushita. She is also the points leader. Good to see such a great performance from her.
Sekiwake Pandaazuma's ozeki run is still stuttering but at 4-3 it is not over yet. Six wins out of eight are now required.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/20

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 5
The two Makuuchi leaders Ganzohnesushi and Andoreasu both lost today, leaving us no undefeated players on only day five. They fall back into a group of seven with 4-1 records.
Mmikasazuma takes the sole lead in Juryo while only three Makushita players can boast perfect records: Otokomae, Yuko and Herritaroo.
Ozeki-run update: Sekiwake Pandaazuma stays on track but only barely with a 3-2 record. Seven wins out of ten are now required.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/18

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 3
The tiny leaderboard shrunk further today, leaving only three perfect players sitting pretty at the top: Ganzohnesushi, Sumio and Andoreasu!
Chisaiyama won a remarkable 9-4 bout to go 3-0 in Juryo and he is joined by Mmikasazuma. And Makushita is down to a leading group of ten.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/5/16

Natsu Basho 2017 - Day 2
Welcome all to Natsu Basho! Plenty of uncertainty on the real dohyo is leading to low scoring over the first two days. This tournament we have only one clear ozeki run - that of Sekiwake Pandaazuma - and ten wins are needed. He is off to a 1-1 start, as almost the entire division is. Incredibly, after only two days, there are no unbeaten sanyaku wrestlers, but the leader board of five contains some famous veteran names of Sumo Game.
It's a similar tale in Juryo, with only four players remaining perfect. One of them is last tournament's winner, Chisaiyama.
Makushita is its usual mess, but former Yokozuna Kintamayama (now Otokomae) sits happily at the top of the pile of unbeaten wrestlers.
Good luck to all the players.
