Day 3 results and day 4 pairings

Recommended Posts

The two yokozuna had no problems to get yorikiri wins over the two winless lead maegashira, leading the field at 3-0. Hakuho is trying to get a few records under his belt this basho, most prominently overtaking Asashoryu for the most wins in a calendar year where the mark is set at 84 in 2005. A more obscure record is the most consecutive makuuchi yusho or jun-yusho where Hakuho now is at 13, tied with Takanohana (and follwed by Kitanoumi 12, Tochigiyama 8, Taiho 8, then Tachiyama, Tochinishiki, again Taiho, Sadanoyama, Tamanoumi, Wajima and Asashoryu at 7).

Kotooshu now is the only (other) sanyaku rikishi at 3-0 as Kotomitsuki and Chiyotaikai lost to Goeido and Kisenosato. Ozeki Kaio got his second win with a quick kotenage over Baruto, making him the third rikishi ever to get 800 makuuchi wins. Only two maegashira rikishi are left at 3-0 with Takamisakari and Yoshikaze who meet tomorrow.

The juryo leader group is down to just three rikishi as Futeno lucked into a win over Masatsukasa while Koryu and Wakakoyu are looking good so far. Shin-juryo Gagamaru got his first win, beating Chiyohakuho with a convincing oshidashi. Okinoumi seemed to get the hang of juryo with a 10-5 last basho, but now he's in a slump again at 0-3, the same as Toyozakura and Kirinowaka.

A more obscure record is the most consecutive makuuchi yusho or jun-yusho where Hakuho now is at 13, tied with Takanohana

In a related note: It kind of flew under the radar, but last basho Hakuho set a new record (five) for consecutive basho with at least 14 wins. For 13+ wins he's currently tied with Taiho and Kitanoumi at 8.

Is it also a kind of anti record: 5 consecutive 13+ basho but only 3 yusho?

I am wondering if this happened before?

It's much, much better: 5 consecutive 14+ basho but only 2 yusho so far this year.

I'm a Hakuho fan, but I'd find it incredibly amusing if Hakuho goes 14-1 to break Asashoryu's annual record, but loses yet another playoff to him to finish the year with fewer yusho than the senior yokozuna.

Or, three ketteisens lost in 1 year, to be precise?

Other than Hakuho, the worst two cases of closely-timed playoff futility I've been able to find:

Kitanoumi

1974.07 at 13-2 (still as ozeki) against yokozuna Wajima

1974.11 at 12-3 against komusubi Kaiketsu

1975.03 at 13-2 against ozeki Takanohana (three losses in five basho)

1975.09 at 12-3 against Takanohana again (four losses in eight basho)

In between he went 11-4, 12-3Y, 13-2Y and 9-6. (Good thing most current fans weren't around for that rush of 12-3 yusho scores...oh the outrage!)

Asashio

1981.11 at 12-3 (as komusubi) against yokozuna Chiyonofuji

1982.05 at 13-2 (komusubi again), Chiyonofuji again

1983.01 at 14-1 (as sekiwake), against ozeki Kotokaze (three losses in eight basho)

In between: 6-9, 8-7, 8-7, 7-8, 9-6...talk about inconsistency! He went 12-3 after the 14-1 miss to clinch the promotion to ozeki.

Hakuho's the first to lose three in one calendar year, as far as I can see.

Thanks for the statistics. Quite amusing indeed. Losing all his ketteisens, yet still getting a record, the most wins in calendar year (I am sure that he will pull it.) Lets see.

One thing I thought was strange... Kakizoe beat Iwakiyama for the first time in 17 meetings. Is that anywhere close to a record for two career meatgrinder guys?

How about the infamous 28 that concluded last year? Somehow, I think Asashosakari will come up with better ones.

I figure there's quite a few involving yokozuna or ozeki, but this one in particular has both guys that are pretty much career mid-low maegashira guys. Just surprised that they've met 17 times and this was Kakizoe's first win...

Did that end chaingang for anyone? I'm not playing this basho, just too busy, but seeing 16:0 I'm sure I would have picked it if I were still in it! Now you know why I never did well in it...

Kitanoumi's overall career playoff record was not that great - he only won three out of eight. Still better than Musashimaru's - one out of seven!
