    Looking at day 6, they did to the M2s what everyone bar @Gurowake was thinking they's do to the M3's on Day 4. At least I know my Day 4 reasoning wasn't bad. The question is, why do it one way on Day 4 and a different way on Day 6? It bears more thinking about.

    Sadly it's not quite that straightforward, but you are right that it does impact for example the Yokozuna schedule.

    I'm kicking myself too. I wish I'd followed my gut. My 2 hours of research got me nowhere. Actually, it gave me information about what the last shimpan group did and what others groups before them had done. Ironically, If I hadn't done the research I would have picked the same as @Gurowake. A least we now have a data point as to how this group thinks. There are other parts of the torikumi on Day 4 which have been done differently than in the past, too.

    5 Terunofuji I had a nagging feeling that this group would abandon what the previous group was doing. Should have trusted my gut.

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite - May 2022 edition

    Over the last two years the shimpan have made an exception to the even day rule when it comes to same-ranked rikishi. If they follow this rule, the it'll be Tamawashi. However, this is a new set of shimpan, and prior to the previous set of shimpan they didn't follow the exception. In they follow this rule then it ought to be Onosho. I don't know what this set of shimpan is going to do. 4 Tamawashi

    I agree. Further analysis suggests that they were not going from the bottom up.

    Scheduling question

    The whole torikumi for the Mid- Maegashira seems off. They didn't do Ura-Wakamotoharu and that has impacted everything in the section. My only guess is that they did the matchups for the top 16 rikishi, then started working from the bottom. When they got to Kotoeko-Kotoshoho they had to rework and this was their solution. Doing the usual `first available rikishi' from the top would have produced a sensible torikumi, so I have no idea why they went with something else. Maybe the new torikumi committee really does have different ideas.
