    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Aki 2018

    I'd be happy to be blocked at M1E with an 8-7, by the way--those san'yaku cheques don't write themselves...

    Final ranks screwed up--it looks like you re-ordered the picks but didn't take the names with it. :(

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He's been using it through the whole basho. And he isn't forbidden to use it, it's just that it isn't seen like yokozuna-like behavior, and thus its use is strongly discouraged. Frankly, smashing two heads together at high speed is a really dumb idea, and the primary thing that the slap seems to do is let Hakuho get on the belt without the knock to the head that comes with many other approaches.

    On a strict rota--The last bout of the day (in fact the whole order) alternates between the (however many) yokozuna, in order of rank, except on day 15 when they reset to the banzuke order. When there's three, that means that the day 13 and day 14 yokozuna-yokozuna bouts also happen to not be the last bout of the day, because those bouts are also on a pretty strict rota. (The same is true of the rest of the torikumi--given a list of bouts a strictly defined order exists for each day of the basho, but it varies depending on which day, as the members of each rank alternate who goes last.)

    No, but you can blame his coach and the system. If and only if he a) can't do himself more harm and b) delaying treatment won't cause him more harm should he be allowed anywhere near the dohyo.

    Yes. Sometimes two complete circles, though that's becoming less common.

    In sailing almost all DQs are after the fact, upon request from competitors: I tell you that you broke the rules, and then you can choose to agree and clear yourself or we take it to a committee meeting afterwards. You can also request 'redress' for things happening that cause you to do worse than you should, such as having to stop to rescue someone in the water.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Basically, yes. He's always (for a few years at least) had a slightly odd kensho-recieving routine that involves putting his heels on the tawara before crouching down.
