    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Looks like everyone missed the really surprising thing today: Kotoyuki had to turn but still managed to win his match! I was curious how Enho was going to approach Takarafuji. I think that might have worked against someone less experienced, but Takarafuji is such a veteran that he knew how to nullify Enho's offense and was never really in any trouble. Congratulations to Takakeisho. Now let's see if he can cinch the emperor's cup as well. I don't know if they would count that towards a yokozuna promotion or not, but he needs to win it first. It's an interesting hypothetical. My guess is that they would not count it, but maaaaaybe? If he does win it, and wins next time, I feel like they would at least have to toy with the idea. Tochinoshin on some seriously thin ice. I'm cheering for him, but it ain't looking good. He's not about to henka three days in a row, and even if he did that wouldn't save his rank. Good luck, big guy.

    Finally getting to watch all the bouts. Loved Yutakayama’s reaction as he won.

    I'm not a huge fan of Takakeisho's sumo (although I think he seems to be getting a little more versatile as of late), but I'm very impressed with him as a rikishi regardless. I'm happy that it worked for him to simply get healthy and get the rank back. He composed himself very well after the two kind-of-freakish losses, and that - to me - is an admirable quality in athletes of any sports. So, while I stated right in the beginning that I don't really like his Sumo, I do like the athlete Takakeisho and I'm happy for him. Not sure he can beat Goeido, though it really depends on which Goeido shows up. That being said, the outcome of the Yusho race is damn near unpredictable to me. If Takarafuji, Meisei and Okinoumi aswell as a debuting Tsurugoshi are in the Yusho race on Day 13, whoever figures this one out should buy lottery tickets.

    Day12 This is not related to NC RyudenーGoeido 豪栄道の左手つき不十分による2度の待ったが有ったが、これは彼が一方的に悪いわけではない。明らかに片方しかつかない豪栄道は当然責められて仕方ない立場だが、竜電も難のある独自の立ち合いをする力士だ。ずるい立ち合いと言ってもいだろう。左手をついて次に立ち上がりながら右手をつく、苦情が出たのか最近はそこまであからさまではなくなったが、相手が両手をついた瞬間にすでに半ば立ち上がっている状態はハンディキャップマッチに等しい。豪栄道はこれをよく知っていて自身もまた大きい相手に対し早く立ちたいのだから合わないのだ。結びの栃ノ心ー御嶽海も、両手ついて待ってるというのは相手からすれば合わせにくいもの。ただ竜電の変則立ちと両手ついて待つ力士は意外に合わせられるようだ。いずれにせよ両者の呼吸を合わせるために何度も仕切りを繰り返しているのだからその時間をもっと有効に使うべきで、何度かの仕切り中で呼吸が合った時に立つよう心がけ、基本的に最初の仕切りから立つつもりで居るのがいいと思う。そうなると相撲観戦ものんびり食事したり他の事したりしながらは見れなくなるが格闘技としての緊張感が今少し出てくるだろう。

    What might be the purpose of delaying the 6th bout of Hattorizakura to day 13? He has no fusenpai on his schedule, so what is the (0-5-1) ? A day cancelled due to the typhoon? - but that is long gone, and till the 5th bout he was on schedule

    Mukade Beya (Formerly STI) Sumo Gaming Banter Thread

    Back inside the top 10 in Quad, in a massive tie for 8tth. A fantasic 9-3 in Toto for a 3-way tie for 4th, one behind the leading group. 4-way tie for 3rd in TTT behind the lone yusho leader and lone jun-yusho leader. FINALLY got a hit in Odd--now to win at least one more (and more likely two more) to make it up to the points. Also killed it in SG for a 5-way tie for 3rd, one win behind the leaders, and equalizing the Baka Cup to 6-6. GANBARIMASU

    Does anybody know if the guest commentator on Abema TV on Day 12 was Asahiyutaka Katsuteru? Looked like him. As for the Enho discussion, I love to watch him fight. I always sit up and pay close attention because I know it’s going to be entertaining and a good scrap and anything can happen. I appreciate his skill and his heart going up against guys much bigger than him and admire his ability to pull off almost magical kimarite. I just don’t like to see him win as often as he does against rikishi I like much better. Maybe I feel almost as frustrated as they do...
