    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Honestly, I thought Tomokaze straight out broke his leg at first. I wouldn't read a lot into Hakuho's loss. He needs to get it into his head he isn't as strong as he used to be. He's used to guys just going out of the ring when he flings them and doesn't pay attention to his own body. That isn't true anymore, some recover. He needs to stay vigilant till the guy is out. Takakeisho looked fine. Didn't get that good shove off the tach-ai is all. he gets it more often than not. I can't believe how bad Tochinoshin has been. Well, at least he can say he was an ozeki. Also, what the heck exactly was Ryuden thinking he was doing against Enho?
  2. Well, I could have started better, but not by much. Can not believe I am out of Chain. How the heck does Tomokaze lose to Kotoyuki of all people? I should have stuck with a Juryo pick. I'm kicking ass in Juryo with 20 out of 28 right so far. Hopefully it keeps up.

    Terrible thing about Goeido injury is I think he would have been DQed on a hair pull if he had won. Wasted effort leading to the injury. Endo looked very good. Very sure footed. Tochinoshin did not look good, but he didn't look bad either. Just played that match too defensively IMO. Takayasu looked good but he didn't look solid. I think he will be happy with a KK. Takakeisho had a great match because of how he won. Showed himself he can still do his sumo and win.

    Kensho Kyushu 2019

    Yes, a very lonely one. It was carried by a skinny little kid that looked about 15. I think he was taller than Enho though.

    I wouldn't read too much into that. I figured Takayasu was sandbagging a bit but I still don't expect him to do gang busters. He will KK. He was a bit tentative with the left arm till the last shove. He has a very good record against Daieisho.

    Very rare for a guy to beat Hakuho twice in a row I would think. He always keys on the guy he lost to for the next basho.

    If it were me I would say given the extraordinary circumstances as long as they were in by the start of makuuchi I'd take them.
