    Kensho for Hatsu15

    Sorry for a dumb question but what is the Morinaga-sho?

    Day 12 lower division results

    I guess I don't monitor the Jonokuchi ranks enough to know, but is it usual for a Jk to be that far up in Jonidan near the end of a basho if they seem as good as Osunaarashi?

    Day 4 lower division results

    Ooh, the almost, but not really, rare osakate. However, when I went to the Reference Site to see who else had won by this, I was surprised to see some pre-2001 wins. Was osakate a kimarite in the old days (1951) and in the not-so-old days (1995), before returning in 2001?

    Day 13 lower division results

    So is an 8-way playoff in sumo done as one would expect? That is like the NCAAs or the like, quarters, semis, finals?

    Tate-Gyoji news

    So, because the #3 doesn't want to be #2 now, #4 can't leapfrog him and take his place?

    Day 9 lower division results

    Jk7w Karyutsukasa (3-2) izori Jk10w Kenho (2-3) The first izori not done by Satonofuji in about three years, and only the fourth non-Satonofuji izori in the last eight!

    Day 6 lower division results

    The rather rare triple attack force out. First time in 6 years if my sumodb skills are working.

    Day 8 lower division results

    Ooh, an uchimuso. Don't see that much. It's not super rare, happening a couple times every year in the sekitori ranks. Here is a nice one from Kotomitsuki in Haru 2004. Whoa. A RealVideo file. Now *THAT* is rare! (Whatever above, it is funny...)
