    Kensho July 2020

    Perhaps the economic slump caused by Corona has something to do with that? Everywhere businesses are hurting when there is less money going around, although I'm not sure how Japan is coping. Having a tournament with an audience may have been an ill-conceived decision considering the wave of new Covid19 infections today.

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

    The torikumi makers have outdone themselves. Seldom have I seen a lineup like the upcoming last day of the July basho, with almost every bout a confrontation laden with suspense. Wow!

    Having looked at Enho's bout in slow motion three times, I definitely think he was robbed.

    Of course his career kachikoshi streak could not remain unnoticed. But his rise was slowed down a bit in Sandanme and with 2-2 at Ms54w he has a long way to go yet.

    Yeah, he was really careful stepping off the dohyo there.

    Doitsuyama rocks! Pleased to see the title of the basho changed into "July 2020" too.

    Hakuho won 13 yusho winners

    Wow. But then, you'd want a top division filled with long-term contenders with an impressive record, rather than a big turnover of rikishi rocketing to the top and plummeting down shortly afterwards.

    I would't exactly call him 'frail' -- even when his legs failed him and made him into a pushover painful to watch and everyone thought his career was over 'frail' wasn't the word that came to mind. He had a problem and he overcame it, thanks to good coaching and the Isegahama gym. And Aminishiki surely told him how to get the most out of those legs. I am happy for him that his perseverance paid off.

    Please find a way to get the markers back. If this is not possible, can the May banzuke be restored in the database?
