    If Mitakeumi is promoted and depending on other's results there might be some trouble with feeling other sanyaku slots.

    Do you mean Terunofuji vs Shodai? There was a Mitakeumi - Shodai already on day 11.

    Meisei 5-8 but he defeated the yokozuna and both ozeki this basho.

    It has been already discussed somewhere. Mitakeumi has excellent average scores against pushers - he is good at stopping their assaults. His scores against belt specialists on the other hand are relatively underwhelming.

    Yes, it's possible. It's just that, as mentioned already, Abi was fighting from low rank to where he was demoted for reasons having nothing to do with real ability, so rewarding him too much may be wrong. So when I saw him paired against Takanosho I wondered whether it's a one last test for him. Maybe I am overthinking.

    But Daieisho got a really cool kinboshi that tournament. I will be a bit surprised if shukunsho is given at all this time.

    Maybe I missed the news... Is it possible that Abi-Takanosho bout tomorrow decides the Fighting Spirit prize winner? Of course usually Abi's performance would be enough already, but this case is a bit special.

    Oh, I see now. "He" in my first post was referring exactly to Takanosho. Sorry for causing a misunderstanding.

    Oh, when I said Shodai vs Abi I meant final day. Should have quoted the previous post. As for sekiwake situation, maybe I misunderstood, but I just don't see who gets the slot then. If Meisei is 7-8 it still should be possible to not demote him, but if it's worse...

    In that case, why not throw Shodai at Abi?

    Meanwhile with Meisei, Ichinojo, Kiribayama all 5-8, and Takanosho 9-4 (and facing Hidenoumi tomorrow) I wonder if he has a shot at jumping straight to sekiwake.

    Tamajiro vs Endo huh. 3 matta. And one on Takakeisho. With Abi's win things are really interesting now.

    Well, Ura is not a Yokozuna yet, is he?

    So Abi gets Takakeisho for day 13 after all. Interesting.

    Poor yobidashi... Takakeisho proved to be too much for him.

    I noticed it when i was watching. Though I wasn't sure they are going to call it. I don't think shinpan haven't noticed it. I think they also decided to wait for the end of the bout and check it.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Very reasonable. Well, I think if it's really 2 yusho as an ozeki (and at least some history of earlier successes) it is well-deserved. As for Takakeisho in particular... let him get there first.
  19. Taliesin

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    I see. Well, one can argue that few ozeki hints at a relatively weaker competition overall (at least when there are also few yokozuna), thus making every performance somewhat less significant. But I got my answer, thank you.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    When contemplating a (not obvious) yokozuna promotion, is the low number of active Ozekis ever a factor? Or do they have nothing against Y-O?

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    I think he doesn't aim for KK, but rather for whatever score will be enough to not send him to juryo immediately.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Impressive throw by Enho. On such days you wonder if everyone gave up on him too early.

    New recruits for 2021 Kyushu

    Ashihada or Asuhada?
  24. In terms of age all of them are more or less his peers, Toyohibiki even being slightly older. Of course rankings hierarchy and everything, but still... I doubt he was a mentor figure for them.
