    Natsu 2023 discussion (results)

    Kiribayama looked so nervous in the first week of this basho. That's all gone now. He fights with the pride of an ozeki.

    Haru 2023 discussion (results)

    Very enjoyable day of sumo today with empressive wins of Hokuseiho and Kinbouzan. I am wondering. If you had to choose one to make it to Yokozuna. Who would you choose? You can make a case for both of them. Hokuseiho is probably the strongest of the two but Kinbouzan looks way more allround. I tend to go for Kinbouzan. In any case I think they will both have a very hard time dealing with Houshoryu in the near future. Because of their big posture they'll be on the receiving end of a lot of his uwatenages.

    The end?

    Works fine in Belgium.

    Grand Slams in Ozumo

    First of all: great topic! Thanks! As mentioned above Hatsu is the thoughest tournament to win for career grand slam holders. It's also striking that Kyushu has only been won 9 times in total by the 'non career grand slam holders with atleast four yusho'. For comparison Haru has been won 21 times by the same group, Natsu 20, Aki 20, Nagoya 17 and Hatsu 16 times.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I don't blame Hakuho for the possible injury to Terunofujis elbow. He got himself in an advantageous position and made the most of the only grip he had, the arm... I do blame him for that huge kachiage. Blinding Teru with his left hand and uppercut him with his right arm. The bout could have been over right there with Teru unconscious on the clay.

    Thanks for starting this great topic! A small remark on your table: Kise has won 2 very memorable tournaments . Only the second is with tachi.

    Meisei loses quickly. Is Endo now the frontrunner to replace Daieisho as komosubi?

    Sorry. I was not clear. Gino sho is a certainty, shukun sho is conditional.

    Gino sho and shukun sho if he wins the tournament.

    With Mbovo down is there any way to watch senshuraku live online?

    Do you know when he will start in Ozumo? Another Mongolian giant?

    The Ozeki are still not facing each other on day 13. This means one Ozeki won't face the other 2 because it's impossible to plan the 3 bouts on 2 days... why?
