    Basho attendance

    The streak of sell-out days at the basho ended at 88 - today about 400 tickets were left unsold: 6600 attended, hall capacity is 6986. At least the 2 year streak of full house days is likely to continue the whole basho. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20181112/sum18111221230012-n1.html

    Kensho Kyushu 2018

    Myogiryu got much less than Takakeisho, who had a real good day 1 bonus: a standard Goeido pack with only 5 kensho indicates that Takakeisho has no individual sponsor, while Myogiryu has one. An Ikioi win got Kotoshogiku much less than a Takarafuji one - and there was the day 1 bonus. Takayasu in the last ozeki bout got as much as Goeido yesterday against the same opponent: the day 1 bonus equals their difference in popularity. Day 2 38: Takakeisho 21: Takayasu 21: Myogiryu 19: Kotoshogiku 12: Goeido 10: Tochiozan 9: Onosho 8: Tamawashi 7: Endo 5: Chiyotairyu 5: Kagayaki 5: Mitakeumi

    Abema TV sumo 2018 all basho live

    It looks like Abema won't continue next year: except for the makuuchi broadcast they had the pure unblemished hall sound (to my delight) and no commentators anymore. We'll see how it develops over the next days - and what they will tell on the last day about their plans.

    Kensho Kyushu 2018

    First time that Kise has all big banner bunch basho days as the sole yokozuna and every day in the last bout (untiless he pulls out) - but will he be able to get enough packs to finish top? Kotoshogiku being 2nd most popular immediately shows (and Takarafuji is a good opponent). Tochiozan with the same amount as Takayasu implies that Mitakeumi is 4th most popular and close behind Takayasu. Goeido had the last ozeki bout and apparently a quite popular opponent to have him that high, but obviously has about the same amount of fixed kensho as well. Onosho with the Endo bunch and Tamawashi with Tochinoshin's has it look like a pretty even distribution in the top 7 sponsor favorites. Kagayaki profited from Abi's popularity - only Yago is a surprise, and that no other bout had 3 kensho: esp. Ikioi, and also Yutakayama and Chiyonokuni seem to have lost sponsors by losing that big last basho. Day 1 33: Takakeisho 12: Goeido 12: Kotoshogiku 9: Takayasu 9: Tochiozan 8: Onosho 8: Tamawashi 5: Kagayaki 4: Yago 3: Shodai
