    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Both M4w Ichinojo (9-1) and M7e Aoiyama (9-1) have a chance of winning the yusho. They face each other on Day 11. However, the Day 12 torikumi will be released prior to that bout taking place. The winner deserves a chance to beat Y1e Hakuho (10-0). How is that possible? Have the traditional Day 13 bouts, Hakuho v Goeido and/or Kakuryu v Takayasu, on Day 12?

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Jk24e Chiyooumi (3-1) did not have a bout on Days 9 or 10. However, he is not listed as being absent. On Day 11, he is scheduled against Jk20w Suzuki (2-3). Why would a rikishi with only one loss face a rikishi with three losses? Has there ever been a two loss difference in a lower division bout?

    Sekiwake, if 2 of these 3 happen; Takakeisho is promoted, Tamawashi is demoted and Tochinoshin gets an 8th win.

    More Importantly, who gets his masu box seats?

    If M4w Ichinojo (7-0) keeps winning, they will move him up to face the top 4 (Hakuho, Kakuryu, Takayasu and Goeido). Probably, in lieu of Tochinoshin. That would be a very big break for the kadoban Ozeki.

    M4w Ichinojo (6-0) is a legitimate yusho contender. He should face Y1e Hakuho (6-0) on Day 8. Then the rest of the joi on Days 9-15. We shall see.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    At Jd48w what does he have to lose?

    Typically, they are donated to supporters, schools, hometowns and such.
  10. Tochinoshin will be O2e. (East). Guaranteed.
  11. It's a good thing that Takanoiwa didn't die. Harumafuji would be facing homicide charges. Now THAT would be a scandal.
  12. Typically, a Komusubi gets "credit" for being in sanyaku. He will be ranked ahead of an M1 with one less win.

    Trump on senshuraku?

    This isn't about "Pro-Trump" or "Anti-Trump". This is about whether or not having the President of the United States attend a Sumo bout would be good for Sumo. I say "yes".
