Day 13 results and day 14 pairings

Recommended Posts

Yokozuna Hakuho won a cautiously fought bout against veteran ozeki Kaio to stay in the yusho lead with a 12-1 score. The two pursuers Kotomitsuki and Ama kept his pace with wins over Toyonoshima and Kotoshogiku, improving to 11-2. No other rikishi is in double digits yet as Goeido had another ozeki loss, this time with oshitaoshi to Bulgarian Kotooshu.

Ozeki Chiyotaikai got his kachi-koshi today with a win against Kakuryu, with only Hokutoriki and Kakizoe also getting the eighth win while five other rikishi at seven wins lost. Sekiwake Toyonoshima is the next sanyaku to finish make-koshi, leaving Baruto who won against Aminishiki for his sixth win. Sanyaku replacement options become fewer by the day as maegashira joi-jin Kotoshogiku and Kyokutenho fell to make-koshi, leaving only Aminishiki and Kakuryu among the M1-M5 ranks who both are 6-7 (besides Goeido of course). Should both finish make-koshi as well, and Toyonoshima get a ninth loss, the banzuke makers will have to dig deep for a second komusubi as Toyohibiki (currently 7-6) Hokutoriki, Wakanosato and Futeno are the next available options.

Aran won against co-leader Tosayutaka with Koryu beating Wakatenro to keep a joint juryo yusho lead. Yamamotoyama is two wins behind the lead now as he lost his fourth straight bout, and his opponent Bushuyama stays in the yusho race at 9-4. Koryu should return to makuuchi with the tenth win, and Kasuganishiki also is getting nearer to a return as he achieved kachi-koshi today.

Kotomitsuki might rekindle the tsunatori talk at Sadogatake on Sunday. But then again, he's still Kotomitsuki...

J1w	Kitazakura (1-12)

Wow, what's wrong with him? His previous records indicated that he is still able to handle the Juryo guys.

Injury? Bad carma?

I had hoped that Kisenosato and Kotoshogiku would be able to KK and move back toward Sanyaku after their MKs last basho. Any thoughts on why they weren't able to move back to Sanyaku? Are they injured? If I missed this discussion on another thread, please direct me there. :-P

Haven't heard about any physical ailments either. I guess Kise took a wrong turn again on the road to nowhere, and Giku was too busy taking groupies out for dinner. :-P

I won't be able to post the day 14 results in time as I will help a friend moving to a new flat which should last a while. Of course Sumo Reference has the results and more.

Oh, while I am at it, on senshuraku I won't be able to post in time either as I will be out even earlier for my special activity. You might be able to guess what it is, right? No guesses allowed for the few who I already told of course. :-P

Put the blame on me ... :-P

Kotoshogiku isn't injured but he told me he gained a lot of weight since last basho. He was happy about it but I don't know if it may affect his agility on the other hand. He also couldn't train all the time before the basho cause his grandfather died and he had to stay with his family.

Something to do with the banner in your signature?

IMO he would need to beat Hakuho in the senshuraku musubi no ichiban and the kettei sen which would be required to take the yusho for serious consideration to even start talking about it. I don't think 12-3 jun yusho would do it for Mickey unless he got a 14-1 or 15-0 yusho in Kyushu.

Still, interesting times with Mickey and Ama possibly on the up while most sanyaku and joi are doing terribly. Futeno could be right back into the joi for Kyushu along with a few other unlikely characters, especially if they get another win or two. GTB will be challenging indeed.

Salt-throwing injury?

A funny thing happened on the way to the next GTB contest...

Did 1-2-10 Iwakiyama fall right to juryo in your estimation or was he forgotten? Or am I unable to read today (possible)? I can't see him there. I thought if Homasho 0-0-15 only falls to M14 then Iwakiyama should hang in there as well but I could be wrong.

Assuming Asashosakari got it right, if Houmashou falls 12 places with 0 wins, how many places should Iwakiyama, ranked 5 places under him, fall with 1 win? 10 places? I'd say he's pretty much assured of a demotion.

I certainly think it's possible that Iwakiyama will end up staying in the end. But if the basho ended right now I'd see him behind the 5th-best promotion candidate (Tosanoumi).

Tamanoshima got an extremely lenient 2-9-4 demotion two years ago (M7e->M14e, and effectively even one rank less due to sanyaku shrinkage), but in that case the crunch was in the low maegashira ranks, this time it's in the high ones. (Possible Wakanoho allusion not intended...) The Day 13 banzuke above actually worked out extremely easily after the top ranks were filled in. So, unless a few juryo promotion candidates fall apart (Tosanoumi, Kasuganishiki, Toyozakura mainly), I don't think Iwakiyama can rely on much banzuke luck.
