Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 15
Andrasoyamawaka overcame Flohru in the final-day death match to take his second Makuuchi yusho. It was well deserved as he was also the overall points leader for Makuuchi. Omedetou!
Chishafuwaku dispelled any doubts about his intent and won on the final day to take the Juryo yusho. A player of his talent will be wanting to return to the top division as soon as possible.
Makushita saw some drama as long-time leader Kaito lost while his rival Denho won. As Denho had a better score, he takes the yusho on a tie-break. Kaito almost managed two straight yusho from his debut. Not many have managed that...but Rupatengu did, back in the day.
Ozeki Yamashiro will be kadoban in March. Ozeki Andonishiki won on the final day to ensure he has no kadoban worries. For the first time for two years, there will be a different player at Ozeki East.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back here in March!

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 14
Andrasoyamawaka and Flohru both won today and are tied with 12 wins. They will face each other on the final day to decide the tournament winner directly.
Chishafuwaku is the sole leader of Juryo but he will have to win tomorrow as he is at a disadvantage score-wise over his three pursuers. It is a similar scenario in Makushita, where Kaito is all alone in the lead. If he wins tomorrow, the prize is his; if he loses and Denho wins, he could lose on a tie-breaker.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 13
Andrasoyamawaka finally lost and it was at the hands of Komusubi Bolo, who drew within one win of the long-time leader. Flohru also won to co-lead the race.
Juryo is now led by Natsunoyama, Mananoyama and Chishafuwaku, setting up an exciting final weekend. Kaito won again in the 3rd division and he is the sole leader going into day 14.

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 12
Andrasoyamawaka just can't lose. Today he took down the talented Ozeki Andonishiki and is now in with a decent chance of winning the whole thing. But hold that page! Tomorrow he fights red-hot Komusubi Bolo! Former Sekiwake Flohru is also in the yusho hunt just one win off the pace and he takes on Komusubi Chocshoporyu tomorrow.
In Juryo Frinkanohana lost, leaving Mananoyama in the sole lead. Makushita is now headed by the very promising newcomer Kaito.
And it was mixed fortunes at the very top of the banzuke today as Yokozuna Pandaazuma cleared any slight kadoban questions with an eighth win while Ozeki Yamashiro slipped to an eighth loss, meaning he is kadoban in March. Everyone knows how strong the Ozeki is, however, and we all expect him to come back fighting next basho to keep his rank with the required eight wins.

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 11
Andrasoyamawaka took a Sekiwake scalp today to move to an impressive 10-1 record. Tomorrow he will face Ozeki Andonishiki. Three players are one win behind, including Komusubi Bolo.
Mananoyama and Frinkanohana lead Juryo with 8-3 records. Newcomers Kaito and Joaozan lead Makushita at 9-2.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/1/22

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 9
Andrasoyamawaka retained the sole lead today to be the first player to gain a winning record. As he is the pace-setter, he can expect some tougher opponents in the final stretch. Komusubi Bolo is on his tail one win behind in a group of six.
Frinkanohana was beaten today but he stays in the lead of Juryo. And a group of six hopefuls are leading Makushita with 7-2 records.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/1/20

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 7
There are no unbeaten players in Makuuchi as of day 7. Shin Komusubi Bolo is part of the leading group. Impressive start by him.
Juryo leader Frinkanohana was finally defeated and he now leads with two others. Makushita also has no unbeaten players. Hesokso and Gurinzou lead the way there.

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 5
The carnage on the dohyo continues and the scoring here is accordingly extremely low.
It's a battle of two sumo gaming veterans as Flohru and Hironoumi keep perfect records as of day 5. Ozeki Andonishiki and new Komusubi Bolo are one off the pace with a large group of Maegashira.
Another veteran in the shape of Frinkanohana is now the sole leader of Juryo. And the Makushita leadership has been whittled down to three hopefuls.

Hatsu Basho 2020 - Day 3
Welcome to the first tournament of the 2020s. After three days of action, it is easily the lowest-scoring tournament of all time, not all that surprising given the sorry state of most of the top dogs.
We welcome Bolo to sanyaku for the first time. He is a shin Komusubi off to a decent 2-1 start. There are very few likely significant promotions or demotions to discuss this time.
All the sanyaku have lost at least one and so Makuuchi is led by a group of Maegashira perfectionists at this early stage. Juryo has four perfect records; Makushita 12.
Good luck to all the players!
