Day 3 results and day 4 pairings

Recommended Posts

The undefeated sanyaku rikishi got reduced to Hakuho, shin-ozeki Baruto, not-so-shin-ozeki Kaio and impressive Kisenosato as Kotoshogiku lost to Baruto and ozeki Kotooshu lost a power match against surprisingly genki Georgian Tochinoshin. Asasekiryu, Aran and Shimotori are the maegashira rikishi at 3-0 as Mokonami lost to genki Aran. The usual joi-jin suspects are at 0-3 (with Kakuryu somewhat surprising here - I guess he won't become ozeki anytime soon), accompanied with bad starts from Tamawashi and Okinoumi.

Georgian Gagamaru looks set for makuuchi next basho as he already is 3-0, bulldozing Sagatsukasa to the ground. Daido and Sadanofuji also are interesting prospects doing well so far at 3-0, with veteran Futeno joining them, looking much better than in the few past basho. Kiyoseumi also is 3-0, but I'm still not sure which way he will take. Kaiho and Yamamotoyama again just looked bad.

Hey, you're not the only one. (Sign of approval...) One of the articles that reported this:

A party was held for KaioU at the famous Metropolitan Area Hotel in Tokyo in honor of his receiving a special award from the Prime Minister (details-earlier posts in this here thread) -400 participants. Today (tomorrow for some of you..) his yusho portrait from his last yusho back in Aki 2004 will be taken down from the KKan ceiling to make way for last basho's winner's portrait, leaving only one portrait of a Japanese rikishi (Tochiazuma) up there.. "Before the basho begins, I've got to go with the feeling that I'm aiming for a yusho..," he said. 9 more wins and he reaches the 1000 total wins threshold.

...featured the very matter-of-fact headline "Kaio promises 6th yusho".

Well, that is precisely what he said, isn't it? (Showing respect...)

I was impressed by his win over Miyabiyama at the dohyo's edge. In other bashos I've seen him put it in reverse and just get out of the dohyo in some similar cases but he fought for that one. 9 wins isn't out of the question for the 1000 though I think Kise will beat him tomorrow.

I did a little research and the last time Kaio started out 3-0, he ended up with a ... wait a minute... 8-7. Never mind.. (Sign of approval...)

In hindsight I should have expected it but... oh well. Probably down to 2-2 in bench now :-(
