Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 15
Congratulations to Asashimaru on his first ever yusho in any division. This is the most important one. He beat Sekiwake Flohru to fend off the spirited efforts of Kuroimori, who is likely to be rewarded with a sanyaku berth in July.
Gaijingai took the Juryo yusho in a tie-break that was decided by Kakuryu's win.
Makushita went to a four-way tie-break, that was quickly decided in favour of Baggunin on points scored. This was also a first-ever yusho.
And finally, Ozeki Yamashiro saved his rank with some...erm...interesting picks on senshuraku. It is good that we still have representatives at both top ranks.
Congratulations to all the winners! See you in July.

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 14
ScreechingOwl lost as Asashimaru won, meaning the latter has a golden chance to win a first yusho tomorrow. He fights powerful Sekiwake Flohru for the prize. Even if he loses, only Kuroimori has a realistic chance of overturning him. In order to do so, he will have to outscore Asashimaru by two points.
Gaijingai is in pole position for the Juryo yusho, but if he loses and Mananoyama wins (with at least the same score), it will slip from his grasp. And in Makushita sole leader Wakatouryu can win with a victory. A loss could put him in danger as several hopefuls below have scores that are similar or higher.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka's ozeki run was stopped today by Yokozuna Pandaazuma, but a win tomorrow could extend his run until next tournament at least. The Panda will be instrumental in the fate of Ozeki Yamashiro as well as they meet on senshuraku with the ozeki needing a win to keep his rank. His head-to-head record against the yokozuna will be encouraging, but it will still be a nervy musubi-no-ichiban.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 13
We're down to two leaders in Makuuchi: ScreechingOwl and Asashimaru both have 10-3 records going into the final weekend. Asashimaru has a big scoring advantage, however, so two more wins would probably give him a first-ever yusho in any division.
It's the same story in Juryo as Gaijingai and Yeditoshi blaze the trail. Makushita is led by a trio with 11 wins.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka needs to win his final two days for ozeki promotion. Ozeki Yamashiro needs one more win to keep the rank.

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 11
Natsunoyama fell to a loss in a tight match and has let the wolves in the door. Four fellow Maegashira join the long-time leader with 8 wins.
Juryo is led by four players also on 8 wins, including former Makuuchi mainstay Gaijingai. Makushita's frontrunners have been whittled down to two; namely Kotosho and Baggunin, who each have only one loss.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/5/23

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 10
Makuuchi leader Natsunoyama lost but remains in the sole lead with a massive group of Maegashira lying in wait just behind him.
Mananoyama now leads Juryo all alone with 8 wins. And the two unbeaten players in Makushita have now lost that distinction. A group of six is now setting the pace.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka is now 6-4 and needs four out of five for ozeki promotion. Ozeki Yamashiro now needs two more to keep his rank.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/5/22

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 8
Natsunoyama keeps on winning and remains in the sole lead. A group of six is giving chase, including Komusubi Takanosushi.
Yesterday's Juryo leader Sagi lost and he now shares the lead with five others. And our two Makushita unbeaten players on day six remain unbeaten on day eight.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka is scoring well and has a 5-3 record now, meaning he needs five out of seven to reach ozeki. Ozeki Yamashiro has suffered two losses in a row and is now in a battle to keep his rank. He needs four out of seven against his fellows in sanyaku in week two.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/5/20

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 6
Day 6 is in the books and there are no unbeaten players in Makuuchi. Kaiomitsuki, Natsunoyama, ScreechingOwl and Chishafuwaku lead the way.
Juryo is led by Sagi, Gaijingai and Yeditoshi, all with 5-1 records. And in Makushita we find the two remaining unbeaten players: Kamogawa and Kakushoyamaii.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka's quest for ozeki promotion will require some hard work as he now needs seven wins out of nine. Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro has a comfortable four wins and needs just four more to keep his rank.

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 3
Welcome all to the Natsu basho, and the weather in Tokyo is matching the name.
There are two main talking points on our virtual dohyo. Sekiwake Metzinowaka just missed out on ozeki promotion last time but has another chance if he can win ten. He lost the first day but has recovered well and now stands at 2-1. Good luck to him. And Ozeki Yamashiro is kadoban, which means he needs 8 wins to keep his rank. He is also off to a fine 2-1 start.
We also welcome for the first time into sanyaku Komusubi Takanosushi, who lit up the Haru basho with a brilliant performance. He started well with a very powerful win over the yokozuna on day one, and won again on day two, but lost today. He now stands at 2-1 with a strong score, so it has been an excellent start.
The early standings see four unbeaten Makuuchi players, three of them with sanyaku experience: Chocshoporyu, ScreechingOwl and Chishafuwaku.
Juryo is led by six unbeaten hopefuls; Makushita sixteen!
Good luck to all the players!
