    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2021

    +1, especially, with the recent Ozeki promotion trends. Heck, if Terunofuji is a Japanese, even a 9 win may get him the Ozeki promotion.

    Corona and sumo

    Once a basho starts, I thought it would not be canceled no matter what happens. They will find a way to keep the basho going somehow, someway.

    I think they may open up an extra spot for Daieisho in the next basho. That will be my GTB play.

    This basho may be an aberration from his consistent performance at this level. I hope this basho gives him the boost to reach the next level and join the Ozeki rank. At age 27, this is the time his physical strength is at the peak. It may be now or never.

    Daieisho gets Okinoumi on day 15. Daieisho will beat him for his first yusho. Even if he does not beat Okinoumi, Asanoyama's win over Shodai will give Daieisho the trophy. It is Daeisho's basho and he fully deserves it.

    I hope he regroups and come back strong in the next basho. What he needs is one of the M17 slots and he will be fine.

    GTB is going to be interesting.

    It was just an awesome win by Terunofuji. Shodai should have finished him off though.

    Which brings up the question of where Daeisho will end up in the next basho? M1, K, S?

    A rare Takarafuji's win over Ichinojo today. But I can see why Ichinojo owns him. Yeah, Daieisho! This is his basho.

    He should take Kotoshoho with him ... That was a sweet win by Terutsuyoshi, the salt thrower.

    Just once, I want to see what happens when the mawashi comes off. Would the rikishi keep fighting? Look for the quickest exit? ....

    Hoshryu started with 5 losses and won 9 in a row. I have not seen such a turnaround before. He must have found a new wonder drug, religion, motivation, sold his soul to the devil, ... Whatever it was, I want to know. I can use it in my golf game.

    I was glad that he went kyujo. Concussion takes days to heal. So, he should skip the last day, too.

    That was another entertaining win by Ura. Azumaryu hasn't learned from his past loss to Ura who is still mathematically in the Juryo yusho race.
