Yumezukuri Yokozuna Promotion
Due to his special feat of winning two yusho in a row and accumulating 24 wins over the last two tournaments, Yumezukuri will be promoted to yokozuna in the next banzuke. He will be the 5th yokozuna in the modern history of the Sumo Game, which will see two yokozuna at the top of the banzuke for the first time. Congratulations!

Kakushoyamaii Ozeki Promotion
Having won 31 of his previous 45 bouts, Kakushoyamaii will be promoted to ozeki in the next banzuke. He will be the 19th ozeki in the modern history of the Sumo Game. Congratulations!

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 15
Ozeki Yumezukuri was the only one of the leaders to win and so he takes a second straight yusho to strengthen his Yokozuna promotion credentials.
Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii lost today but has 31 wins in three tournaments and can therefore be considered for ozeki promotion.
In Juryo Fujiyama lost again and Kaiowaka won but Fujiyama wins the tie-break by virtue of his superior score.
Makushita ended up a thriller as Oyama and Kashunowaka ended up with 13-2 records and identical scores. As they did not meet each other this tournament, the next tie-break rule - most 8+ scoring days - came into play. Oyama had 5 to Kashunowaka's 4 and therefore he wins a very close-fought yusho.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back in November where we may very well have a new Yokozuna and ozeki.

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 14
Ozeki Yumezukuri lost today and allowed Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii and Andonishiki back into the yusho race. All three face different opponents tomorrow. Yumezukuri has a one-point advantage over Andonishiki if it comes to a tie. The sekiwake would probably need both of his rivals to lose and win himself as he is several points off the pace.
In Juryo Fujiyama lost but so did Kaiowaka and his scoring advantage should ensure victory even if he loses tomorrow. Oyama is the sole leader in Makushita but Kashunowaka can catch him if he wins tomorrow while Oyama loses AND scores at least one point better.
As alluded to yesterday, both Ozeki Yumezukuri and Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii now have the numbers for possible promotions to prestigious ranks. Wins tomorrow would greatly aid their causes and make denial very difficult.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 13
Another impressive performance by the new ozeki keeps Yumezukuri firmly in the lead with two days remaining. Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii along with Sumio and Andonishiki are one win off the pace.
An interesting scenario is unfolding in that Ozeki Yumezukuri has a decent case - given his stellar form this year - for instant Yokozuna promotion, especially if he secures yusho. He won the last tournament with 12 wins (23 in two basho - already a Yokozuna-worthy total) after an 11-4 jun yusho in May. He is currently on 22 wins in two basho (the minimum for Yokozuna promotion) with two days remaining. The only thing that might stand against him is the fact he has only been ozeki for one tournament, but the rules for this game are not written in stone. Interestingly, assuming he faces Yokozuna Pandaazuma as usual on Sunday, he won't have faced yusho rival and ozeki promotion candidate Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii at all - very unusual for an ozeki and sekiwake - and a bit of a tragedy given the stakes involved for both. It is possible the usual Yokozuna-Ozeki bout on senshuraku could be scrapped if the sekiwake is still in the yusho race (as Pandaazuma at 8-5 is not in yusho contention). Plenty for the gamesmaster to think about anyway. It would be the first time in the history of the game that two Yokozuna were active at the same time.
In Juryo Fujiyama faltered again and will need to watch out for Kaiowaka who is only one win behind now. Patikoyama and Oyama now lead Makushita with 12-1 records.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/24

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 12
Ozeki Yumezukuri came through a crazy day with another win and is now the sole leader after Andonishiki slipped up. Andonishiki is now part of a chasing group of five that includes Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii, who needs two wins out of four for ozeki promotion consideration.
Fujiyama won again in Juryo to go 11-1 and two wins clear of Kaiowaka, the only close pursuer. Kashunowaka lost in Makushita so Patikoyama and Oyama now lead.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/23

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 11
The highlight bouts lived up to their billing as Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii defeated Andonishiki in a 10-10 thriller. Ozeki Yumezukuri also turned in a stellar performance to defeat Komusubi Andoreasu 10-9. Andonishiki and Yumezukuri now lead the field with 9-2 records.
Fujiyama returned to winning ways in Juryo and is two wins clear. Yesterday's three Makushita leaders all won to maintain their leads.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/22

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 10
Andonishiki racked up another win and as the 9-1 leader will now be matched up against top-rankers. Tomorrow in one of the highlight bouts he will face Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii (7-3), who is also desperate for a win as he now needs four out of five to be considered for ozeki promotion. The other highlight bout will be between second-place Ozeki Yumezukuri (8-2) and Komusubi Andoreasu (7-3).
Juryo leader Fujiyama finally lost but is still two wins clear at 9-1. Patikoyama, Kashunowaka and Oyama lead Makushita with nine wins apiece.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/21

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 9
Former Ozeki Andonishiki has emerged as the sole leader as of day 9. He is being shadowed by Ozeki Yumezukuri, Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii, Komusubi Andoreasu and Sumio.
Unbeaten Juryo leader Fujiyama needed some luck today but he marched on to a ninth win and is the hot favourite as he is an incredible three wins clear of the field. Meanwhile, an 8-1 foursome leads Makushita.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/20

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 6
Yesterday's sole leader Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii hit his first setback today but he remains in the lead with six other players, including Ozeki Yumezukuri and Komusubi Andoreasu. The sekiwake is also looking strong with regard to his ozeki run - he needs six more wins out of nine for consideration.
The Juryo lead is shared by two unbeaten players, Fujiyama and Terarno. Four hopefuls lead Makushita with perfect records.
by Pandaazuma, 2021/9/17

Aki Basho 2021 - Day 3
Welcome to Aki basho!
We have a new ozeki in Yumezukuri and he is off to a flying 3-0 start. Sekiwake Kogaratsu and Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii are both on ozeki runs and need 11 for consideration. The former has work to do after a 1-2 start but the latter is well on the way with a 3-0 record so far. Along with Komusubi Andoreasu, the new ozeki and new sekiwake share the lead in Makuuchi.
Good luck to all the players!
