Deadline for entries is 12noon Japan time on Day 1.
The new banzuke is finally up as well.
I gave a lot of consideration to the possible promotion of Flohru to Yokozuna based on his last 2 basho (15-0 tie for yusho runner up [81 points], 14-1 junyusho [79 points]), but although the results were very high scoring did not meet the criteria of 2 consecutive yusho. I have in the past denied other ozeki with a yusho and junyusho. That being said, because of his excellent results over the previous 2 basho, if Flohru wins the yusho this basho, then he will be promoted to Yokozuna. I have added the general guidelines for promotion to Ozeki & Yokozuna to the rules page of the website.
