Norizo Ozeki Promotion
Having won 31 of his previous 45 bouts, Norizo will be promoted to Ozeki in the next banzuke. He already held the game's second highest rank 15 years ago, back in 2008. Congratulations!

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 15
Andonishiki had a very easy day at the office and cruised to the yusho. That's number four for the former ozeki. The two pursuers both lost so Andonishiki won by two wins.
Juryo: Patikoyama and Chindonya both won and finished with 11-4 records. Patikoyama has a one-point scoring advantage though and so takes the yusho!
In Makushita Hakushosho won again and easily won a tie of four players.
Congratulations to all the winners. Hope to see everyone back in July for the Nagoya tournament.

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 14
Yesterday's leader Andonishiki lost but so did his lone pursuer, Susanoo. If Andonishiki wins tomorrow, the yusho is his. If he loses and Susanoo or Sekiwake Norizo win, it will be a tie. Susanoo has a two-point advantage over the leader at the moment. Norizo also has a chance if he is the only one of the three to win tomorrow.
Patikoyama, Chindonya and Kotononami lead Juryo. Kotononami is miles behind in points and so would need to win while the others lose. Patikoyama is the Juryo points leader, one ahead of Jakusotsu and Boloyaka, who are also one win behind and still have an outside chance of yusho with major luck and stellar play.
Seven players lead Makushita so it's a free-for-all. Hakuhosho has a four-point advantage over the best performing of the others so would just need a win.
And Sekiwake Norizo secured a tenth win, reaching the minimum of 31 wins in three tournaments to be promoted to Ozeki. His recent play has been incredible and a promotion would be richly deserved.
Good luck to all the contenders on the final day!

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 13
Of the two leaders, Andonishiki won but Susanoo lost. Both matches were high-quality ties. Andonishiki is now in pole position with two days remaining.
Chindonya has now emerged as the sole leader in Juryo. Four hopefuls are one win behind. And new player Momijiyama leads Makushita all alone with 11 wins.
Sekiwake Norizo needs one more win for Ozeki promotion with two days remaining. I would not bet against him.
by Pandaazuma, 2023/5/26

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 11
Susanoo and Andonishiki are now the leaders in the Makuuchi yusho race. ScreechingOwl and Ganzohnesushi are just one win behind.
Jakusotsu is now sharing the yusho lead in Juryo with Kotononami. And Tochinojo still leads Makushita all alone with a 10-1 record.
by Pandaazuma, 2023/5/25

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 9
We are now entering the business end of the tournament.
Ganzohnesushi overcame fell yusho hopeful Susanoo to take the sole lead and he has a nice early kachikoshi. Susanoo is now one win behind along with Trender and Andonishiki.
Kotononami leads Juryo with 8 wins. And in Makushita, Tochinojo is the only remaining undefeated player in all divisions.
In the ozeki promotion stakes, Sekiwake Norizo is still alive but he needs to win five out of the final six against the elite players of this game. He's certainly capable of that.
by Pandaazuma, 2023/5/22

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 4
The high scoring continues. Can Bishonohana's old scoring record be approached?
Unbeaten Susanoo and Adonishiki are early leaders in the Makuuchi yusho race.
Jakusotsu, Patikoyama and Boloyaka, also unbeaten, lead Juryo. 13 players lead Makushita, including newcomers Tetsuba, Rinsan and Clementesan.

Natsu Basho 2023 - Day 2
Welcome one and all to the Natsu Basho. As of day two, we are seeing very high scoring. Are we finally seeing some predictability returning to sumo??
Looking at the banzuke, Sekiwake Norizo was very unfortunate to miss out on Ozeki promotion but he can make sure of it this time with ten wins, something that is easier said than done in this game. He is off to a 1-1 start (suffering a 10-10 loss today). Sekiwake Kakushoyamaii has been in fine form in recent tournaments and he can return to the Ozeki rank with 12 wins this time. He is off to a perfect start, along with Yokozuna Pandaazuma and eight Maegashira hopefuls.
Former Sekiwake Andoreasu stands among the early Juryo leaders. And the very large Makushita division is still finding its shape. Incidentally, with 196 active players this time, we are almost at an all-time high (200). Thanks for your participation!
Good luck to all the players!
