Day 10 results and day 11 pairings

Recommended Posts

Kotomitsuki basically clinched ozeki promotion today with the win against undefeated shin-yokozuna Hakuho, following the example of his stablemate Kotooshu who did it with a win against Asashoryu. Technically Kotomitsuki still needs a win, but with five remaining days and his current form it is much more interesting to start speculations if he will win his second yusho almost six years after winning the Aki 2001 yusho. That's so long ago, even his yusho portrait is taken down from the Kokugikan rafters as there is only room for 32 of them. He can start the yusho stretch against the other yokozuna Asashoryu tomorrow.

Tochiozan will not get a kachi-koshi this basho after all as he got his shoulder separated in the loss yesterday and had to go kyujo. At least he will stay in makuuchi. Kisenosato lost to Hokutoriki in a one-sided bout and at 6-4 he isn't doing as well as he could below the joi-jin. Homasho is showing the way with a strong win against Kitazakura and a 9-1 record. Asashoryu also is even with Hakuho as he forced sekiwake Ama out. Ozeki Kaio lost to Takamisakari, losing the tachi-ai badly, while Chiyotaikai and Kotooshu improved to 6-4 with wins.

Tokitenku quickly lost to Wakanosato and is 3-7 as Ama, so there might be three free places in lower sanyaku, maybe even a clear-out if Aminishiki who is 5-5 with a win against Asasekiryu finishes make-koshi. This might result in some very lucky sanyaku promotions as noone in the joi-jin is headed to kachi-koshi. Homasho is the only good candidate right now.

Kyokutenho is 9-1 in juryo with a win against young Wakanoho who became 19 years old on shonichi. Iwakiyama and Goeido stayed one win behind as they achieved kachi-koshi today. Wakakirin and the Hoshihikari are 7-3 with wins today. The light Mongolian shin-deshi is doing surprisingly well, given that he is just 106 kg and not especially powerful even for his weight. Shimootori lost to Kasuganishiki, leaving both former makuuchi at 5-5.

I much prefer to think about Sekiwake Aminishiki right now. Gambatte Ami!

Kyokutenho is 9-1 in juryo with a win against young Wakanoho who became 19 years old on shonichi. Iwakiyama and Goeido stayed one win behind as they achieved kachi-koshi today.

Promotion clinched for Iwakiyama and Kyokutenho, too, in all likelihood.

Come on Mickey! It would be nice to have a japanese rikishi take the yusho again, only two of the last 20 yusho has been won by a japanese.

Kotomitsuki won the Yusho in Aki 2001 , six years ago.

I think we don't need to go too fast and talk about the yusho.

The only goal is the ozeki promotion at that time. He needs 2 more wins to be sure of it.

As a fan of the first hour, I would be happy only after these 2 next victories.

You are right of course. I'll correct that.

Sounds like a joke now - single no loss rikishi, likely next ozeki, and we should not talk about possible yusho?! (Clapping wildly...) If it was some M15, then well, yusho hopes would be premature even with 10-0, but talk seems to be all right anytime...

Five days remaining, five possible losses.

Sorry but I 'm cartesian, especially with Kotomitsuki and his many last disillusions.

Well, I understand the safety first fan approach, after all, I watch sumo since Aki 2001 and Kotomitsuki was often on display... but wait, exactly in Aki 2001 he has proved that he is capable of taking yusho. The opponents might have been incapacitated back then, but on the other hand he is also more experienced now... and likely Ozeki who is expected to fight for yusho after all...

Nine of the 10 Maku's who went into day 11 with a 7-3 or 3-7 record got their eighth. Tokitenku is the only one who escaped.
