Day 5 results and day 6 pairings

Recommended Posts

Asashoryu won against Toyonoshima without much trouble, beating the small rikishi with yoritaoshi, while Hakuho stayed closely behind with a win over Miyabiyama. Homasho, Tochiozan, Hokutoriki and Kokkai are the remaining undefeated maegashira, joining Asashoryu in the lead as all four show much better sumo than in the last few basho.

Kakizoe, Baruto and Asasekiryu also are improved with a 4-1 record already. Ozeki Chiyotaikai also is 4-1 and on his way to get a kachi-koshi in a kadoban basho for the eleventh time. Fellow long-tenured ozeki Kaio also is 4-1 while the two Sadogatake ozeki are 2-3. At least Kotomitsuki won his last two bouts, but Kotooshu lost to Aminishiki today.

Kimurayama lost to Kitataiki, leaving Tosanoumi and Tochinoshin as juryo leaders as both won to extend their record to 5-0. Both also are the leading early promotion candidates, followed by Hakurozan who is 3-2 with a win against Sakaizawa in makuuchi.

S1e Ama (3-2) S1w Kotoshogiku (1-4)

This is an excellent chance for Ama to improve his awful record against Kotoshogiku who looks hampered by injury and has been easily beaten four straight times. Ama looked really upset when he was beaten by Kotoshogiku yet again in Hatsu. Expect him to come out with a dazzling tachi-ai tomorrow. Hopefully Kotoshogiku doesn't resort to a henka as he tends to do lately whenever KK is in danger.

My boy chose the wrong tachi-ai strategy today.

...It seemed to me that the tachi-ai strategy was chosen by Dejima (and executed superbly).

Waka went for the grip over the shoulder probably thinking he could pull Dejima down but the ex-ozeki had too much experience for that.

I love it when Dejima comes out like that - as long as he can stick to his aite for long enough, he can blow away just about anyone. Shame he doesn't do it more often.

As for Wakanoho, he is still learning and hopefully a bout like that would have taught him a lot about how a really good tachi-ai can put your opponent out of the contest very early.

Kotooshu has been the sole ozeki to be dominated by Aminishiki in the past few basho, sad. By and large the tall Bulgarian has been too slow to get the mawashi a reasonably quick tachiiai knocks him off more easily than before.

Thanks to some arm-twisting by a moderator who shall remain nameless (just kidding) and because the Info-Sumo Day 5 recording was derailed by a parliamentary debate on NHK:

J6e Chiyohakuho (3-2) J7e Tamawashi (2-3)

Chiyohakuho attempted an ipponzoei on Tamawashi and failed miserably. Tama no kachi.

Revised post: I had the wrong combatants on the first one. (Oops!)
