Haru Basho 2020 - Day 15
Sumio easily won his bout with Kibooyama and Ganzohnesushi was not able to win his own bout so it's a sixth Makuuchi yusho for the former Ozeki. He now draws level with Norizo for most Makuuchi yusho all-time. Congratulations!
In Juryo Akoushousan won again to win the yusho outright. Makushita yusho winner Akaitori actually lost today but he won't be worried about that.
At the top of the banzuke, Yokozuna Pandaazuma was unable to master the uncertainty of the tournament and will be 'soft' kadoban in May. This means two more losing records would lead to a loss of the top rank. Ozeki Andonishiki today put in an impressive performance to finish 8-7. He will be keeping his Ozeki east spot as well as sadly Ozeki Yamashiro was unable to secure a winning record while kadoban and he will be demoted to sekiwake in May. He will have one chance to return if he wins ten in that tournament.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you all in May (I hope!)

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 14
Sumio lost and fell back into the chasing group. Three players can now win the tournament: Sumio, Ganzohnesushi or Kibooyama. The former two are way ahead on points so the latter would need to beat Sumio tomorrow and hope Ganzohnesushi loses. If Ganzohnesushi and Sumio both win, a tie-break could be very close indeed.
In Juryo Akoushousan is almost home even if he loses tomorrow by virtue of a superior score over all his rivals. And in Makushita, Akaitori won again to cap off an impressive performance with a day-14 yusho. Congratulations.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 13
Sumio won again and retained sole lead. He is being chased by Ganzohnesushi and Kibooyama.
The merry-go-round in Juryo moved again and we now have the trio of Akoushousan, Survivor and Kyoju in the lead. Akaitori continues his majestic run in Makushita and is now two wins clear with only two days left.
The two ozeki met today and Andonishiki won a close match leaving them both with 6-7 records. Ozeki Yamashiro will be demoted and Ozeki Andonishiki will be kadoban if they don't both win their final two matches.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/20

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 12
Of the leading group only Sumio emerged victorious and he is now the sole leader with three days remaining. He takes on a close rival in Sekiwake Andoreasu tomorrow.
In Juryo both Kyoju and Survivor lost and so there is a four-way tie for the lead with Akoushousan and Kiriazuma.
In Makushita Akaitori won again and is leading just ahead of Hakuhosho.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/19

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 11
Things got a little interesting as Kitakachiyama lost and fell into the chasing pack. Four hopefuls now lead with 8-3 records.
Survivor and Kyoju both won and retain the Juryo lead. And in Makushita it is Hakuhosho and Akaitori, who scored a fine ten-pointer today.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/18

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 10
Both Kitakachiyama and Sumio lost today and this has allowed many players back into the race. Flohru, Konosato and Andoreasu join the pursuers.
Survivor and Kyoju won to stay ahead of the pack in Juryo. Akaitori, Hakuhosho and Boloyaki now lead Makushita with 9 wins.
Sadly the ozeki runs of Sekiwake Bolo and Sekiwake ScreechingOwl have come to an end. They fight each other tomorrow and it has become damage control at this stage as both are in danger of falling out of sanyaku altogether.
Ozeki Yamashiro is going well on his quest to once again save himself from kadoban. He needs to win two more out of five.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/17

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 9
Another day, another win for leader Kitakachiyama and he can celebrate a day-nine winning record with only one rival in touching distance: Sumio
In Juryo Kyoju lost and allowed Survivor in to share the lead. Akaitori, Hakuhosho and Boloyaki now lead Makushita with 8 wins apiece.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/16

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 8
Kitakachiyama won easily to go to 7-1. Only Konosato and Sumio are within striking distance.
Kyoju took the sole lead in Juryo. And we are down to four leaders in Makushita, including veteran player Fujisan.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/15

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 7
Day seven is in the books and Kitakachiyama is the sole leader of Makuuchi with a 6-1 record. Ozeki Andonishiki is part of a chasing group of six.
Four hopefuls lead Juryo, also with six wins, and seven lead Makushita. There are now no unbeaten players.
Sekiwake Bolo is now 4-3 and Sekiwake ScreechingOwl is 3-4 on their ozeki quests. They need ten wins to be considered. Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro is below parity at 3-4 and he must now win five out of the remaining eight days.
by Pandaazuma, 2020/3/14

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 3
Welcome to a decidedly eerie Haru Basho.
First we welcome two newcomers to the elite sanyaku division. Komusubi Tragikomy and Andrasoyamawaka. They are both off to 1-2 starts so there is work to be done if they are to register a winning record.
Sekiwake ScreechingOwl and Sekiwake Bolo are both on Ozeki runs. They need 10 wins to be considered for promotion. Ozeki Yamashiro is kadoban but is off to a decent 2-1 start.
The early Makuuchi lead is headlined by Ozeki Andonishiki - now the second-ranked player for the first time in his career - and Sekiwake Bolo, who has really set the game on fire in recent tournaments.
Five unbeaten hopefuls lead Juryo. And nine wrestlers lead Makushita at this early stage.
Good luck to all the players!
