Day 13 results and day 14 pairings, Makuuchi and Juryo

Recommended Posts

Hakuho and Harumafuji won again to make it the 13th time with two rikishi starting 13-0, the first since Haru 2004 (the last before that was Kyushu 1987, a rather large gap), partially thanks to the torikumi makers who placed the match between the two yusho candidates on senshuraku, so we might see the seventh occurence of two 14-0 rikishi on senshuraku (the last was Aki 1983 with Takanosato beating Chiyonofuji with tsuridashi).

Goeido and Myogiryu fared differently today, but both sanyaku rikishi are 7-6 and in good position to stay there opposed to Tochiozan and Toyonoshima who are certain to drop. Aran and Gagamaru looks like the best candidates if yet a bit weak cases. Maybe Aoiyama or Shohozan can complete the turnaround for a kachi-koshi in the joi-jin ranks. Yusho defender Kyokutenho certainly is setting records again, but of a different kinds as he 0-13 by now.

Tochinowaka and Tamaasuka have enough losses now to join Hochiyama on the way down to juryo, a bit puzzling in the case of the big Kasugano-beya rikishi of Korean origin. Ikioi, Tamawashi and Sadanofuji are getting close as well and need to win out while Czech Takanoyama again failed to get kachi-koshi and needs one more win to stay.

The juryo yusho leaders Jokoryu and Chiyonokuni certainly will be in makuuchi but probably not next basho as they are ranked too low (Jokoryu still can get it with a 12-3 I think). Asasekiryu, Asahisho, Fujiazuma and Kimurayama are the best promotion candidates (sure thing for Asasekiryu actually) with Tenkaiho needing one more win for the kachi-koshi.

Bit of an odd scheduling with the yusho-chasing Kise and Kokonoe pairs in juryo. It was already odd enough that they're occupying 4 of 5 successive slots but hadn't faced each other at all until Day 12, but now it looks like Chiyootori will definitely only face one of the Kise guys.

After Chiyonokuni-Tokushoryu for Day 13 I was sure they'd do Chiyootori-Jokoryu on Day 14, and the two other matches on senshuraku... So now it's just Chiyonokuni-Jokoryu on Day 14, oh well.
