Aki Basho 2018 - Day 15
Tomatsu beat Komusubi Takanosushi to take a first-ever Makuuchi yusho. 13-2 is fairly hard to achieve in the top division so well done and congratulations!
In Juryo Bolo pipped Survivor to take the Juryo yusho. This is also a maiden yusho (in any division). In Makushita, Reeen lost but the only possible threat, Inazuma, also slipped up and so the yusho goes to the long-time leader. And yes...you guessed it. That's a first-ever championship!
Finally, congratulations to Ozeki Yamashiro for pulling out one of the best line-ups of the day to preserve his status at his exalted rank.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for playing. See you in November for the final tournament of the year.

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 14
Tomatsu won again to retain the sole lead and a win tomorrow against Komusubi Takanosushi will guarantee a first ever Makuuchi yusho. A loss however could let in any of Sumio, Norizo (who play each other), Mauji and Kazutoyama. Kazutoyama has a clear advantage in a tie.
In Juryo, Bolo is the sole leader but a loss against Survivor tomorrow would likely put the trophy in his opponent's hands. Tenshinhan has an outside chance but will need to win with a high score AND hope that Bolo loses.
There is a similar scenario in Makushita. Leader Reeeen will take the yusho if he wins, but a loss could let in Inazuma, the only player with a good enough score to challenge.
At the top of the banzuke, Ozeki Yamashiro won today but will need to beat Yokozuna Pandaazuma tomorrow in a high-stakes match to retain his rank.
Good luck to all the players!

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 13
Tomatsu was the only one of the leading trio to win and is now the sole leader. A group of five that includes Komusubi Takanosushi is in hot pursuit.
Survivor and Bolo lead Juryo with ten wins. And Reeeen marches on as the sole leader in Makuuchi.
In other news, Komusubi Takanosushi will be ruing that missed tournament as he has now scored 31 wins in the last three active basho, enough for ozeki promotion. Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro lost today and is now up against the wall, needing to win the last two bouts to retain his rank.

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 11
Tomatsu keeps that outstanding 10-match winning streak alive and retains the sole lead with only four days remaining. Sumio, Norizo and Mauji are lurking just one win off the pace.
Juryo finally has a sole leader in Tenshinhan, who could be getting a jump up into Makuuchi if he keeps up the good work. In Makushita Athenayama slipped up and fell into the following group of five that includes the game points leader Reeeen.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/19

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 10
Tomatsu was the only survivor of a cull of the leaderboard today and is now the sole leader. A group of six that included Komusubi Takanosushi is one win behind at 8-2.
Six players lead Juryo, including former Sekiwake Survivor. And Makushita is now led by Athenayama with a 9-1 record.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/18

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 8
Only one of the leading group lost today, namely Chocshoporyu. Four now lead and will be hoping for early winning records tomorrow. Komusubi Takanosushi is the only sanyaku representative.
Yesterday's three Juryo leaders all won and are now 7-1. And the only unbeaten player Akumagawa was let down by Kisenosato today and he falls into a leading group of seven.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/16

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 7
All three unbeaten Makuuchi leaders contrived to lose today, pulling quite a few hopefuls back into the yusho race. Komusubi Takanosushi will be relieved to be back at the head of the pile as we enter nakabi.
Juryo is now down to three leaders in Tenshinhan, Bolo and Kazamidori. In Makushita we find the only remaining unbeaten player in the entire game: Akumagawa.
Ozeki Yamashiro has enjoyed a mini revival and is back in positive territory. He needs four more wins in the final 9 days to retain his rank. Sekiwake Kuroimori's Ozeki run is at an end, while Sekiwake Sebunshu needs to win out to get the nod.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/15

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 6
Komusubi Takanosho slipped up today, allowing his three rivals into the lead. Former Ozeki Norizo is joined by top Maegashira Chocshoporyu, who has never won a Makuuchi yusho in his long career, and newcomer Kazutoyama.
Juryo is led by six 5-1 hopefuls, while Akumagawa and Takashidodo are the only unbeaten players left in Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/14

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 5
Komusubi Takanosushi is one of four unbeaten leaders in the Makuuchi division. It is a real shame he missed last tournament as he is on a streak that would ordinarily get him promoted to ozeki. Another member of the leading pack is newcomer Kazutoyama, who has shot up the divisions and is now showing that it was no accident.
No less than eight players lead Juryo with 4-1 records. Makushita has been whittled down to just four players with perfect records.
Sekiwakes Kuroimori and Sebunshu are now almost dead in their quests to become ozeki. Ozeki Yamashiro has lost three straight after his good start and needs to be very careful he is not demoted. He now needs to win six out of ten.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/13

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 3
Day 3 is done and dusted and we have four leaders in Makuuchi, headed by the only sanyaku representative, Komusubi Takanosushi.
In Juryo we have five unbeaten hopefuls, including two former sekiwakes, Survivor and Terarno. Makushita is still in the process of forming its shape for the tournament.
The two ozeki candidates have both had disastrous winless starts and now both need miracles to move up. Ozeki Yamashiro started strongly but slipped up today. He is 2-1 and therefore needs to go 50-50 to keep his rank.
by Pandaazuma, 2018/9/11

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 1
Welcome to the Aki Basho!
Congratulations to Komusubi Asashimaru on the sanyaku debut. This player has shot up the ranks very quickly. Sadly, it was a losing start, but 14 days remain.
Sekiwake Kuroimori and Sekiwake Sebunshu are both on ozeki runs, needing 10 and 11 wins respectively. The both lost today. Ozeki Yamashiro is kadoban and needs 8 wins to keep his rank. He is off to a strong start, scoring an excellent nine.
Good luck to all the players!
