March Basho 2021 - Day 15
Kiriazuma won the Makuuchi death match with ease to secure a first Makuuchi yusho in his current incarnation. Kiriazuma used to be Kirinoumi, the game's first Yokozuna. With this victory he will be propelled into the Makuuchi jo'i and will have a chance to start working towards being the first player to reach the top rank twice. Congratulations!
In Juryo Cucumohana's nightmare came true as Mauji won the bout by the two clear points required to take the yusho on the second tie-break rule. Both will be in Makuuchi next tournament, Cucumohana for the first time, so that may serve as some consolation.
Ketsukai and Hakumadashi both emerged from the leading pack with wins but Ketsukai has a far superior score and therefore wins the yusho on that basis.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you in May for the Natsu basho.

March Basho 2021 - Day 14
Yusho favourite Rupatengu (by virtue of points scored) was slaughtered today and Chocshoporyu also lost. This allowed Kiriazuma to take the sole lead with 10 wins. He will face Rupatengu tomorrow in what amounts to a yusho play-off. If Kiriazuma wins, it will be a clear yusho. If Rupatengu wins, he will almost certainly take the yusho on a tie-break. There is a slight chance that another 9-5 winner could catch Rupatengu. The nearest is Yokozuna Pandaazuma, who is three points behind.
It's a similar story in Juryo. Leader Cucumohana will fight Mauji, who is one win behind. Mauji needs to win the bout by two clear points to take the yusho on a tie.
Makushita is very open. The most likely winners are Fujisan or Hakubayama, the highest scorers of the leaders. They don't fight each other tomorrow so every point will be vital.
Good luck to all the contenders!

March Basho 2021 - Day 13
Chocshoporyu was sole leader for a day but he lost and allowed Rupatengu and Kiriazuma back in the door. The trio lead with nine wins and two days remaining. Rupatengu has the advantage as he is the top scorer at this point.
In Juryo, Cucumohana won yet again and is now 12-1. Mauji kept up his stubborn pursuit one win behind. Ketsukai has lost two straight days so Makushita is now very open. No fewer than nine players now share the lead with 10-3 records.
In other news, Yokozuna Pandaazuma cleared his kadoban status after a strong recovery from a shaky start.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/26

March Basho 2021 - Day 11
It was carnage among the Makuuchi leaders and only former Ozeki Yamashiro and Chocshoporyu came through intact. They now lead with 8-3 records. A massive group of eleven is just behind.
Another win in the books for Cucumohana and he remains in the sole lead with only Mauji in touching distance. Ketsukai won again to retain the Makushita lead.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/24

March Basho 2021 - Day 10
The leading duo both lost today and there is now a very large leading group of nine, all hoping for an eighth win tomorrow.
Cucumohana won to keep the Juryo lead at 9-1. Ketsukai's perfect record finally fell but he remains the sole leader of Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/23

March Basho 2021 - Day 9
The Makuuchi leading group was whittled down to the duo of Mananoyama and Rupatengu.
Cucumohana is now the sole leader of Juryo. And Ketsukai kept his unbeaten streak going to retain the lead in Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/22

March Basho 2021 - Day 8
Another day of carnage in what has become the norm in the last year or so. There was even a rare 1-0 bout in Makushita today, with 14 picks out of 15 wrong between the two players. That is almost impossible to do even by accident!
Sole leader Mananoyama lost and fell into the chasing - now leading - group that numbers six hopefuls.
Cucumohama, Mauji and Athenayama fly the flag with seven wins in Juryo. Ketsukai is the only remaining unbeaten player - he leads the Makushita division.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/21

March Basho 2021 - Day 6
With one loss each, Mananoyama, Kiriazuma and Reeeen lead Makuuchi. Sekiwake Andoreasu is the only sanyaku representative in the immediate chasing pack.
A group of six lead Juryo, all also with one loss. And gaming veteran Fujisan is one of four remaining unbeaten players in Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/3/20

March Basho 2021 - Day 3
Welcome to the March tournament.
Sekiwake Yumezukuri is on an ozeki run and he needs 11 wins. He is off to a tough 1-2 start and will need to up his game. The same goes for Yokozuna Pandaazuma, who is kadoban and needs 8 wins to keep his rank. He is also off to a 1-2 start.
Former Ozeki Sumio shares the early Makuuchi lead with Kazutoyama. Former Ozeki Norizo shares a four-way lead in Juryo. And Amakaze keeps up his excellent run fresh off two straight Makushita yusho. With his win today, he extends a winning streak of 15. Can he make Sumo Game history and win an unprecedented third straight Makushita yusho?
Good luck to all the players.
