good day all,

The current TORCH holder, Yamaguchi, changed his shikona for his Juryo promotion and is now known as Daikiho. So....

AKI BASHO STARTING TORCH POSITION: rank JURYO 9 WEST & rikisihi DAIKIHO

If you look at the first post of this thread, there were 37 entrees and 30 of the 37 have RANK picks in JURYO. Hmmm... who has J9W?

There are also 8 RIKISHI entrees currently lin Juryo -- Kameumi (Chiyootori), Holleshoryu & Oshirokita & Simon & Yoohoo (Jokoryu), Saruyama (Keitenkai), Cydrome & Haykutake (Satoyama).

And 6 players have Juryo RIKISHI & RANK picks! (Cydrome / Haykutake / Holleshoryu / Kameumi / Simon / Yoohoo).

it will be a busy basho. Best of luck to all in the Juryo zone.

The torch match is too the Match for Capture the Sagari.

That means: by accident both games until Senshuraku off this basho will go totally identical.

In KyuShu basho will torch continue with the same sumotori,

but Capture the Sagari (the "Franz") will have a new start with the last maegashira of the new banzuke.

Please look at this interesting Sumo fun game.

We do very important, but all is only fun.
