  1. Kamitsuumi

    New recruits for Haru 2019

    It's definitely not Chiyotairyu since he's in a different ichimon. Everyone except Sergey (and Shimanoumi??, who would be a juryo rikishi in the ichimon) is a Dewanoumi-ichimon makuuchi rikishi. From left: Sadanoumi, Ichinojo, Goeido, (Sergey), Mitakeumi?, Kakuryu, Shimanoumi??, Shodai

    Who are the two behind Kakuryu? One looks like Mitakeumi; is the other Shimanoumi?

    He has not won by any yotsu-zumo kimarite since 2016, and the last two by yorikiri against Shodai and Kotoshogiku did not involve any belt action. The last one he won while touching the mawashi seems to be a yorikiri against Nishikigi in Nagoya 2016.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    From the 1957 rules linked earlier: Under the following conditions, the gyoji or the shimpan may caution the rikishi, or may temporarily stop the bout to correct the violation. When only the ushirotatemitsu (the vertical portion of the mawashi in the back) is gripped, the rikishi must change his grip when the gyoji cautions him. (The grip is accepted if the gyoji is unable to caution the rikishi)

    Trivia bits

    He is the only one since 1958. Futabayama's two bashos as Ozeki (Jan, May 1937) were both zensho-yusho.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Harumafuji was spotted entering the same restaurant as Takanoiwa. The two confirmed that they had reconciled. Harumafuji will be present at Takanoiwa’s danpatsushiki.

    The ordering of the bouts is determined by the higher ranking rikishi of each bout. In addition, generally the first few cross division bouts has increasingly higher ranked makuuchi rikishi but increasingly lower ranked juryo rikishi. This means that the bout would sometimes happen after the first makuuchi bout.
