After Day 14...

Rikishi		 #		 Yen
Hakuho		220  12,100,000   
Kotomitsuki   120   6,600,000   
Asashoryu	 108   5,940,000	
Kotooshu	   76   4,180,000   
Kisenosato	 53   2,915,000	
Takamisakari   39   2,145,000	
Kotoshogiku	38   2,090,000	
Harumafuji	 36   1,980,000	
Kaio		   34   1,870,000	
Chiyotaikai	34   1,870,000

There were a lot of kensho to be had on Day 14.

Hakuho stayed in the Yusho lead, taking care of Harumafuji by okuridashi. The win saw 31 kensho go to the Yokozuna, boosting his overall total past the 200 mark for the tournament.

Kotooshu stayed alive in the Yusho race by forcing out Asashoryu. He earned 26 envelopes from this win. Fellow Sadogatake Ozeki Kotomitsuki won his 11th bout of the tournament, forcing out Kakuryu and collecting 18 envelopes from the gyoji.

Kaio took care of Chiyotaikai to earn 4 envelopes and Kotoshogiku picked up another 3 and his KK from a win over Miyabiyama.

i like the idea, but I'm not sure about the execution. It seems to me that some sort of rut would become evident, with whoever the leader is winning every day just for tradition's sake or somewhat.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that part of my idea was that the 'spectacular kensho' would not necessarily be awarded each day if there was not a suitable candidate (a little like some of the sansho). They could perhaps jackpot to the next day/next basho, which would make for quite a windfall for someone down the line.

After Day 15...

Rikishi		 #		 Yen
Hakuho		263  14,465,000   
Kotomitsuki   137   7,535,000   
Asashoryu	 108   5,940,000	
Kotooshu	   96   5,280,000   
Kisenosato	 58   3,190,000	
Takamisakari   39   2,145,000	
Kotoshogiku	38   2,090,000	
Chiyotaikai	37   2,035,000	
Harumafuji	 36   1,980,000	
Kaio		   34   1,870,000

Kotooshu forced out Harumafuji to keep the Yusho race interesting until the final bout, where Hakuho came up with a hard fought victory over fellow Yokozuna Asashoryu to secure the Nagoya title. Hakuho took home 43 kensho from his win as well as the 10,000,000yen reward for taking the championship trophy, finishing the basho with 263 kensho in total. Osh's 13th win of the tournament netted him further 20 envelopes, leaving him just short of 100 on the tournament.

Kotomitsuki won his 12th, an okuridashi victory over Kaio, that brought him another 17 envelopes and allowed him to finish 2nd in the kensho standings. Kisenosato picked up 5 against Aminishiki and Chiyotaikai 3 against Kakuryu.

Aminishiki and Shotenro will take home an additional 2,000,000yen each for their respective special prize wins, as well as Wakanosato for his Juryo Yusho.

And the same like ever: Takamisakari with MK in the Top 10 (Doing a wave...) (In a state of confusion...)

Indeed, with an average of 6-7 flags everyday that means even with a 6-9 record he can expect to take home 36-42 which is almost always enough to keep him in the top 10.

is there a "Career Kensho" stat somewhere? If not, I may go through your posts and tally them up.
