    Certainly enough to have an opinion. That's what keeps the forum lively.

    A healthy Takayasu could be winning this tournament.

    The 3 favourites all looking to add to their one yusho. Should be an exciting last few days. Is this the much anticipated new era beginning?

    Unfortunately I think that is very much the situation now for Tochinoshin. Although i would be pleased to see him regain something like his best form.

    Can't really agree. He is the only person I could imagine keeping himself up like that for that long. Therefore not a lucky move but part of his repertoire.

    Plenty of Kotoshogiku's victories?

    Do remind us in a year's time. Even if he is "only" a sanyaku regular by then.

    It's amazing how natural those implants feel.

    Yes, he should be "deleted".

    Hardly a generous offer as he must be clear favourite to achieve the 10 now.

    It's not been a factor up until now. But as you've made your difficulty clear it would be very unfair not to include that 3rd slot.

    There is surely no magic number of wins(9,10,11) that would be needed to force an extra sekiwake spot. Other factors will be the numbers of the current sekiwake, the other komusubi and whether an ozekiwake will be on the next banzuke. There might be a minimum, hard to imagine that's 8.

    He's always seemed a well balanced and savvy competitor but he looks like he's added something extra in recent times.

    In truth he's performed no better than a yokuzuna should against such a depleted banzuke. If he doesn't win out from here he can't really complain, unless something unfair occurs.

    One win wouldn't guarantee jun-yusho.
