    Lastly gotta close the loop on the winners' bracket.

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Here's a summary of all the 6-1 runs not listed above (excluding Kitaharima's runnerup finish to Oshoma). Obviously many of the matchups I forecasted in earlier brackets never came to fruition.

    Well, here is the setup for two final day 6-1 runs on opposite ends of Makushita (both of which can be potentially denied by non-Makushita wrestlers). Notice that the winners of course are done - they do not compete against each other :)

    Submitting this as the final bracket with apologies to Hoshuzan who is also currently 4-1 and who may get his final 2 wins vs Sandanme opponents. (or maybe this bracket will demand a rematch between Asonoyama and Kiryuko who didn't exactly fight to a finish the first time around...)

    The placement of this bracket implicitly makes two assumptions (1) that Kitaharima will not advance to the finals (I've just got a feeling), and (2) that Dewanoryu will advance past Nishinoryu in the one-loss bracket. If those are incorrect guesses then more things have to be moved around (Kanzaki would face someone lower on the banzuke for 5-1 vs 5-1, and Kitaharima cannot face Nishinoryu for a rematch).

    Didn't mean to stop posting these last night. The "third" 6-1 bracket. Notice that Tamashoho cannot face the two guys that he already faced from the other side. However I am speculating that Mukainakano will beat Tamashoho anyway and face the winner of Nionoumi / Oshoryu. If Tamashoho wins he will have to find another opponent.

    I thought about doing a mini-feature on Tochiseiryu and discussing all the names he has dueled with (starting with a 6-0 vs 6-0 loss to Shodai in Jonokuchi). Might include it below.

    Second bracket of one-loss contenders. I presumed that Oshoma would beat Tochiseiryu and relegate Tochiseiryu to face the other 4-1 vs 4-1 winner. On the other hand if Oshoma loses then see the previous post.

    Here is the top of several "one-loss" brackets, where obviously Oshoma and Hokuseiho have been appearing all over the place. Notable is the fact that I had to leave two 6-1 runs off of this bracket because they belonged to guys Tomokaze has already beaten, so he will have to get an opponent further down the banzuke (probably Tsurubayashi). Also if Oshoma loses his semi-final it is conceivable that he may face a Chiyosakae or Kinbozan, and if Tomokaze loses his next match then lots of possibilities are open.

    Two rounds snuck up on me fast...

    Once again I have goofed this up with the assistance of Tokitsukaze. Asonoyama should be facing Ms51 Tokisoma who was moved into a lower matchup on account of Yoshii's involvement in the last round.

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Hokuseiho needs to run through a couple more of my favorites! Also I'm realizing I really want to post the 1-loss bracket to keep this fresh and interesting. Is there another post in the forums about that Asonoyama/Kiryuko match?
  13. Hoshotakamoto

    March Madness (makushita) - May version

    Yoshii will have to face Nobehara - I missed that one (Tokisoma must face Hakuonada).
  14. I posted this in a thread back in March. Here is the updated bracket for Makushita (speculative - a Juryo can always come in and wipe out a chunk of it) after 2 opening rounds of Makushita action.

    request (no spoilers)

    Oh my, 9-8 is a hard loss. Yet even if Meisei had won my best hope was a 10-10 tie (I had Takarafuji higher).
