After 5 days, Chiyotaikai is 2-3 while Kaio is 3-2. What's interesting is on the days Kaio won, Chiyotaikai lost, and the days Chiyotaikai won, Kaio lost. Even more, it's an every-other-day thing. Chiyotaikai's record so far is l-w-l-w-l while Kaio is w-l-w-l-w.

How long will this continue this way? Their day 6 opponents are:

Chiyotaikai vs Tochinoshin (1-4)

Kaio vs Kisenosato (3-2)

According to the pattern, it's Chiyotaikai's turn to win and Kaio's to lose.

In our estonian sumoforum we call this things "glove pattern". Tomorrow could be another w-l day - C & K. (Being ninja...)

I predict there will be at least one more day when one of them wins and the other loses. I'll even put money on it. Any suckers takers?

I prefer Chiyotaikai to lose and kaio to win

I say both will win tomorrow. Kisenosato has already lost mentally, morally and traditionally and Taikai can propeller the inexperienced Georgian.

OK , if you really think what you say , I'm sure now that you will let Kisenosato on the bench tomorrow. (Being ninja...)

He should also pick both ozeki in Seki-Quad! (Oops, I didn't say anything...)

Damn! They're on to me!

I hope nobody really picked both Chiyo and Kaio today.... or either of them.

Is there an icon with egg on it?

Point out a pattern, and it breaks. Kaio did his part, and lost. Chiyotaikai didn't hold up his end, and lost again too. ;-)

Wakatenro so far : LWLWLWLWLW

Place your bets on the outcome of his bout on day 11. (Applauding...)

I just noticed that Wakatenro's pattern is already going on since day 11 of previous basho :

000111100110101

01010101010????

What would be the absolute record, by the way ?

Among the four cases I've found with a full-basho streak, Kawachiyama has the longest total streak, tacking on 2 in front and 4 at the back for a total of 21. Not sure if that's the very best total since it's of course possible to split 22+ across two basho without having a single one complete. Perhaps I'll keep looking...

It's time to trot out one of my favorite postings again.

That's where I looked first, too. Oddly enough he doesn't have those four complete nuke-nuke streaks, even though they qualify as symmetrical.

BTW, snooping around a bit more - Chiyotaikai just ended a 16-day streak (since Nagoya Day 5) when he entered his tailspin... Still looking for streaks that span across two partial basho, but nothing over 18 yet.

Great, but indeed I fail to see 101010101010101 nor 010101010101010.

The four cases that Asasho-zeki noted all happened in Juryo. The chart only addresses Makuuchi patterns.

Another nice pattern so far in Juryo by Shirononami :

011 011 011 01

-> He now needs another victory and finish with a 011 pattern to make it complete.

And to spicen things up a bit, his opponent on day 12, being Wakakoyu, is busy on a nice pattern himself :

111 010 101 01

-> Wakakoyu needs a defeat and then finish with three more victories to keep the symmetry.

=> So you can safely bet on the outcome of their bout. (Whistling...) (In a state of confusion...)

Oh, and these two are having exactly the opposite pattern :

10010101010 by Kyokunankai

01101010101 by Kotokasuga

-> Freaky ! (Nodding yes...)

Will they make it or break it ?

011 011 011 01010? : Shirononami -> can he win against Kotokasuga ?

0110 1010101 011? : Kotokasuga -> losing against Shirononami will make it complete

01010 01010 0101? : Sakaizawa -> has to lose from Kirinowaka to finish it smoothly

10011 01100 1010? : Kiyoseumi -> has to win from Sokokurai to keep this a nice pattern

And will some nice opponent vs opponent patterns continue ?

Shi Kot Shi Kot Shi Shi Kot Kot Shi Shi Kot Kot : Shirononami vs Kotokasuga -> Shirononami's turn again ?

Kyo Kai Kyo Kai Kyo Kai Kyo Kyo Kyo Kai Kai : Kaiho vs Kyokunankai -> Kaiho again ?

Kis Kis Kak Kis Kis Kak Kis Kis Kak : Kisenosato vs Kakuryu -> back to Kisenosato ?
