Day 15 results, yusho and sansho

Recommended Posts

Hakuho won a seventh consecutive yusho despite losing to veteran ozeki Kaio as his sole pursuer Tochinoshin lost to Harumafuji to make an early decision in the yusho race. Incidentally, with 38 years and 9 months Kaio is the oldest rikishi to beat any yokozuna since Oshio won against Minanogawa on day 6 in Hatsu 1940 at 39 years and 5 months. I have only one more rikishi older than Kaio winning against a yokozuna since 1900 with Asashio (also an ozeki) beating Tochigiyama on day 8 in Natsu 1918 at 39 years and 1 month.

Kisenosato secured the kachi-koshi on the last day to stay sekiwake, while Kakuryu moved to 12-3 and really should enforce a third sekiwake for the first time in ages which enables Goeido and Tochinoshin to occupy the two open komusubi slots. The maegashira ranks should then end at M15w which either brings Kimurayama up from M17e to M15w with his 7-8 or gets a sixth juryo promotion - not that unlikely since the number five and six in the promotion order (behind Takayasu, Takarafuji, Sagatsukasa and Daido) are neighbors on the banzuke with Fujiazuma and Masunoyama so they would look ok both at M15 with Kimurayama at J1e.

Kakuryu moved to 12-3 and really should enforce a third sekiwake for the first time in ages

Specifically, since Wakanosato, 2003.03, not counting Tochiazuma while demoted from ozeki

which enables Goeido and Tochinoshin to occupy the two open komusubi slots. The maegashira ranks should then end at M15w which either brings Kimurayama up from M17e to M15w with his 7-8 or gets a sixth juryo promotion - not that unlikely since the number five and six in the promotion order (behind Takayasu, Takarafuji, Sagatsukasa and Daido) are neighbors on the banzuke with Fujiazuma and Masunoyama so they would look ok both at M15 with Kimurayama at J1e.

Takamisakari must be demoted (7:8, only possibility being M15e>M15w). In which case Tochinonada (M14w, 6-9) can either stay above Takamisakari (M15e) or go to juryo. But 7th juryo promotee would be hard to find: first 6 would include Masunoyama (J9e, 9:6) and Daido (J4e, 8:7) but 7th would be Tamaasuka (J12w, 8:7).

So maybe Tochinonada can stay above Takamisakari.

Or they could, like, simply keep Sakari at M15e and move Nada to M15w... The usual standard is "MK = cannot promote", not "MK = must demote".
