Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 15
Kakushoyamaii's final day loss opened the gate to an exciting finish to the Makuuchi division as no less than six players finished with 11-4 records. The only player to match him on points scored was Cucumohana. Thus we moved to the second tie-break rule - the result of their match during the tournament. As they did not meet each other, however, we are forced to check the third tie-break rule - the player with the most 8+ days. Cucumohana has 5 compared to Kakushoyamaii's 4. And so it's congratulations to Cucumohana on a yusho in his first tournament in the top division.
Norizo and Saruwataritwo won Juryo and Makushita respectively with impressive 14-1 records.
Congratulations to all the winners and see you back in July.

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 14
Kakushoyamaii enjoyed an effortless win for the third day in a row (now an eight-day winning streak) and so remains the sole leader going into the final day. He faces real opposition tomorrow though in the form of fellow yusho contender Asashimaru. In fact there are an incredible seven players with 10 wins, which may well be a record on day 14. Several of these have a chance of yusho if Kakushoyamaii slips up. The likeliest are points leaders Yokozuna Pandaazuma and Cucumohana. There are others with slight chances but they would need to outscore the leader considerably. Interestingly, if the leader loses and Pandaazuma and Cucumohana both win with the same score (and it is at least equal to Kakushomayaii's score), the yusho will be decided randomly...perhaps a first in this game's history. Let's hope it doesn't come to such an absurd pass.
As expected, former Ozeki Norizo sauntered to a 13th win and easy yusho in Juryo. Quite what a player of this level is doing in the second division is something of a mystery but that will be resolved next time as he will be catapulted up the banzuke towards where he belongs. Chishafuwaku takes the jun yusho with 11 wins and he may also be promoted next time, especially if he wins tomorrow.
Congratulations to the lower division winners. And good luck to the Makuuchi division contenders tomorrow.

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 13
Of the four leaders yesterday only Kakushoyamaii survived and so is now the sole leader with two days remaining. A large group of 9 is waiting for any kind of slip.
Norizo won again in Juryo and is almost certainly now the champion as his closest rival Chishafuwaku is two wins and three points behind. Saruwataritwo won again and has wrapped up the Makushita yusho very early. It is rare to see Makushita decided on day 13. Congratulations on a fine performance. Can he manage the zensho?

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 12
As we enter the home stretch four players lead Makuuchi with 9 wins: Andoreasu, Kogaratsu, Asashimaru and Kakushoyamaii.
Norizo is now two wins clear in Juryo and is closing in on an easy win. Saruwataritwo remains the only unbeaten player. He is also two wins clear.

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 9
Kazutoyama takes sole lead of Makuuchi with a 7-2 record. A large group of nine is in close pursuit.
Former Ozeki Norizo leads Juryo with 8 wins. And Saruwataritwo leads Makushita as the last remaining unbeaten player in all three divisions.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/5/17

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 6
Yokozuna Pandaazuma and Sekiwake Yumezukuri are part of a leading group of four in Makuuchi here on day 6.
Former Komusubi Chishafuwaku is the only unbeaten player left in Juryo. Kotoroiwa, Hakumadashi and Saruwataritwo all lead Makushita together.
Regarding Ozeki promotion prospects...the best chance likely falls to Sekiwake Mananoyama, who has shot up the rankings and even missed out the komusubi rank altogether. He needs 11 wins to be considered for promotion but is currently 3-3 and will therefore need to win 8 of the last 9. Sekiwake Rupatengu needs 12 wins for consideration and is 4-2 so he also needs to get his finger out and keep his current winning streak going. Sekiwake Yumezukuri needs 13 and is currently one of the co-leaders at 5-1. Again, plenty of work to be done.

Natsu Basho 2021 - Day 4
Welcome to the Natsu basho!
Incredibly there are no unbeaten players in Makuuchi. An enormous group leads with three wins, including Yokozuna Pandaazuma, Sekiwake Yumezukuri and Sekiwake Survivor.
Chishafuwaku and Frinkanohana are early leaders in Juryo. An unbeaten group of six leads Makushita.
Good luck to all the players this tournament!
