  2. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    Thanks for the excellent thread + analysis
  3. Your Banzuke from the 2020's

    Hattorizakura will almost certainly be outperforming Terunofuji by then at this rate

  6. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Well it wasn't so much choosing a frame, as screen grabbing on the go (you can;t frame by frame advance on twitch that I am aware of, so apologies thats its not the best), but I was trying to show how Sōkokurai was down well ahead of Ishiura.
  7. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Ishiura vs Sōkokurai, really bizarre call
  8. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Thanks, I usually double check my rikishi spellings, but this time my fear for the wily veteran's knee had me submitting too fast...
  9. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Easily one of my favourites so far this basho Here's hoping for a 3-way Yusho playoff. Tochinoshin vs Mitakeumi vs Kakuryu.... I'm also hoping that Aminishiki's injury isn't going to make that his last bout, he didn't look in a good way :(
  10. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I think Tochinoshin is surprising everyone right now (especially Goeido and Takayasu)
  11. Kensho Hatsu 2018

    Surprised Kotoshogiku didn't jump onto the board with the big stack he got from the match against Kise
  12. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I know it from Tachiai: https://tachiai.org/2018/01/11/hatsu-story-4-the-tadpole-army/ https://tachiai.org/tag/angry-tadpole-squad/ https://tachiai.org/tag/battle-of-the-angry-tadpoles/ https://tachiai.org/tag/onosho-the-mighty-tadpole/ etc etc Not sure if its from somewhere else before though?
  13. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    In defence of Geeku, he does have a winning record over Kisenosato, though admittedly Kise didn't look good and definitely shouldn't have gone down like that. Though if Geeku can get his 6th ever win against Hakuho tomorrow though then somethings definitely up with him too I mean I knew something had happened when I started getting alert after alert from this thread, but I definitely wasn't expecting that Hakuho/Yoshikaze result...
  14. Video Streaming - Hatsu 18

    Good bout too even if he couldn't overcome Takayoshitoshi, thanks @mbovo
  15. Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    I assume he was just happy with the excellent pointing job he had done earlier
