    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Yes - I think they'll make him get double digits in the next two basho. Something around 43+ wins in 4 basho. Takakeisho made 42 in 4 basho in sanyaku until promotion. If I had the query-fu I would like to research the promotion criteria used for former repromotion to Ozeki (besides the direct 10 wins from S)

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    I dont think they will promote Teru with a 33 this time, maybe 4 basho above 10 wins? I hope that he gets 11 wins
  3. Goeido was 15 Sekiwake and 4 Komosubi before Ozeki
  4. I think Terunofuji has a plan: while in the Yusho race, fight; if out of the race but 10+ wins, kyujo (but starts a Ozeki run); if out ou the race and less than 10 wins, keep fighting

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Okezi first. He'll need a lot to get back there, more than the 33 usual wins
  11. Abi got one basho so no extra slot right now.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Any chance of Ozekihood to Shodai? He has 32 wins last 3 basho and 43 last 4 basho. If he and Mitakeumi win tomorrow he'll get a nice 33 with at least a D

    I found him resorting to brute force. Not good in my opinion

    Another Sekitori Marriage

    Thanks both of you! I'll edit the post. Is there any photo of Kaisei and his wife?

    Another Sekitori Marriage

    Kaisei married (Edited: But this is not her wife, it seems to be the ownser of sumo_kumi channel giving Kaisei congratulations)
  17. Is there any info about Kaisei having a kabu?
  18. I think both conclusions may be right. He was most effective in a weight that his body couldn't support for long/heal properly. Aoiyama seems to be a similar rikishi: he has a very thin line of weigth where is most effective. A little above? He gets hurt or slow. A little below? Meh, just a regular M10 rikishi

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    This basho was the saddest in a long time. I have a hunch that after the Olympics we'll lose both Yokozuna.

    It looks good for Endo. Second week should be easier than first, and he did really good so far

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    What a weird basho. I only watch sumo for 8y (exactly, since Kaisei debut in Makuuchi - Natsu 2011) and I find this "anybody-can-get-the-yusho" kinda sad and underwhelming. I miss the technical prowess of the sekitori from Hakuho era. They do not get many Yusho but it seemed to me we had better fights - even now Hakuho in -end-of-career is better than anybody else by a kilometer. The Ozeki are a joke.
