by Takanotaki, 2017/11/27

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 15
Konosato emerged victorious in the final-day showdown with Sekiwake Pandaazuma to take a third career Makuuchi yusho with a fine 12-3 record. He will be rewarded with a jump into sanyaku and the beginning of an ozeki run.
In Juryo three players finished with ten wins but Fujisan won the tie-break with his 103 points scored. And in Makushita the two long-time frontrunners both won to finish 14-1 but Kirinoootori took the big prize on a tie-break.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you all in 2018.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/27

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 14
After Chankoyama's four-day losing streak, the Makuuchi yusho is now down to just two contenders: Sekiwake Pandaazuma and Konosato. They will meet tomorrow in a bout that will almost certainly decide the tournament winner. Konosato is one win behind, but a win would give him the big prize on the basis of his superior overall score.
As has been the case all tournament, Juryo is a messy jumble of leaders. Five players have nine wins and it's anyone's guess who will come out the winner.
In Makushita, Jakawakason and Kirinoootori are still tied but will not fight tomorrow. Kirinoootori has a three-point advantage so a win for him is likely to be enough for the yusho.
Good luck to all the contenders.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/25

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 12
Sekiwake Pandaazuma won the big showdown with Chankoyama and the two now lead the tournament, with only Konosato in touching distance.
Juryo continued its rollercoaster ride and there are now three leaders in the form of Asashimaru, Oshirokita and Mainoumi, who lost the sole lead today. And...stop the Makushita press! Kirinoootori lost at last and is now in a direct battle with Jakawakason.
Finally, congratulations to Pandaazuma on his quick return to the ozeki rank.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/23

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 11
Chankoyama's amazing run came to an end today as she ran into a determined Konosato. Kotononami also lost, but Sekiwake Pandaazuma won and he is now only one win behind Chankoyama. They fight each other tomorrow in a death match. Four other players follow the Panda with 8-3 records.
Juryo now has only one leader in Mainoumi, but a giant group of 8 players is waiting for a slip-up. In Makushita, Kirinoootori is now the only unbeaten player in the game. He is followed now by only one rival: Jakawakason.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/22

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 10
It's 10 out 10 for Chankoyama, and her latest victory was a vital one as it was over her closest rival, Kotononami. She now has a two-win lead over her defeated opponent and Sekiwake Pandaazuma, who has quietly racked up eight straight wins. He needs two more wins out of five to return to the ozeki rank.
In Juryo Hesokso lost and is dragged back into a group of five leaders with 7-3 records. And it's also 10 out of 10 for Kirinoootori, who is still followed stubbornly by Honomaru and Jakawakason.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/21

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 9
Yet another imperious performance on a day of many upsets sees Chankoyama improve to 9-0. Tomorrow she faces her nearest rival, former Sekiwake Kotononami, who is the only 8-1 player. Chankoyama is now likely to face several top players in order to earn the yusho.
Hesokso lost in Juryo today but so did all the close rivals. He remains the leader with a 7-2 record. And Kirinoootori picks up a ninth win out of nine. Two rivals remain stubbornly in pursuit.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/20

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 8
An imperious 9-pointer from Chankoyama led her to victory and a winning record on nakabi. Can she repeat her heroics in the second week? Kotononami and Mimawari, who are stubbornly clinging on to second place, will be hoping not.
Veteran gamer Fujisan lost in Juryo allowing Hesokso to take the sole lead. And Kirinoootori won again in Makushita and so is the only remaining unbeaten player along with Chankoyama.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/19

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 7
Day seven and it's win number seven for Chankoyama. Can she make it a winning record on nakabi? Konosato, Kotononami and Mimawari are one win off the pace.
Hesokso and Fujisan are now leading Juryo, while Kirinoootori took good advantage of Jakawakason's loss to take sole possession of the Makushita lead.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/18

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 6
Chankoyama had a hefty dose of that most necessary commodity in this game - luck - today to pick up her sixth straight win. The following group now numbers five, with Komusubi Yamashiro among them.
Juryo is still a mess with six leaders, while Makushita is down to two unbeaten players: Kirinoootori and newcomer Jakawakason.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/17

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 5
Chankoyama marches on with another commanding win and is now 5-0. She is followed by a group of eight that includes Komusubi Yamashiro.
All unbeaten players lost in Juryo so we have a huge group of eight in charge at 4-1, unusually larger than the group of five leading Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/16

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 4
It's only day four but we already have a sole leader in Makuuchi: Chankoyama, a relative newcomer, who has shot up the ranks. This is her second time in Makuuchi and she is showing great potential so far. A large group is snapping at her heels.
Juryo is led by the duo of Frinkanohana and Hesokso. And there is a seven-way tie of undefeated players in Makushita, including long-time droning cat, Nekotaikai.
by Pandaazuma, 2017/11/15

Kyushu Basho 2017 - Day 3
Welcome all to the final tournament of the year in Kyushu.
Former Ozeki Pandaazuma has one chance to regain his lost rank with at least ten wins, but he is off to a poor 1-2 start. Sekiwake Kaiomitsuki is also on a run but will need 11 wins, also after a 1-2 start. Major improvement is needed from both players.
In Makuuchi there are seven unbeaten players, including the komusubi duo of Yassier and Yamashiro. Juryo is down to four unbeaten players. And Makushita has nine, including long-time stalwart and former Komusubi Yuko.
