Kensho for Aki15

Recommended Posts

This basho is about to see a record of more than 2000 kensho. The sponsors already have applied for 2095, a great deal more than the record from the Natsu basho of 1776. 10 new firms in the kensho sponsor ranks, leading to especially more kensho for Kisenosato, Terunofuji and Endo.

The final (applied) kensho numbers will be known on the 12th. At the present pace the top for a day 1, 151 at the Natsu basho, may get surpassed.

In the number of fixed kensho on his bouts for the whole basho, Endo now has become no 1.

95 more than last basho, 85 more than Natsu, the last Tokyo basho, a total of 279. He had so far 10 firms as sponsors, main being Nagatanien and Zaiho, and has 2 new additions this basho: Takahashi books and East Japan passenger Railways (one JR).

No. 2 is Terunofuji with 181 fixed, 3 Kisenosato with 174 and only 4 Hakuho with 146

- that won't be the actual number on his bouts, not all are fixed kensho for a rikishi and the ones from his opponents add to that: I'm sure he'll have the most total on his bouts and of course also win the most as usual.

Wonder when the last time was this list appeared without Hakuho in the top spot. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Okinoumi doubled his career total with today's haul.

And it's going to stay that way for the rest of the basho. I have to wonder the last time he didn't finish a basho on top of the kensho list.

Stupid question, but how come Yoshikaze got only 13 kensho whereas Okinoumi got 50?

Opening day vs. Monday, I guess.

Also not the final bout on Day 2.

Hakuho out may endanger the 2000 mark for this basho - if the sponsors won't redistribute.

The fact that someone other than the yokozuna ozeki have been able to stay atop these rankings for the opening three days is in itself a testament as to the chaos this basho has become.

The 34 kensho meant for the Hakuho bout (largely as for being the last one) on day 3 were partly redistributed:

23 to the Kakuryu-Yoshikaze bout as the new last bout of the day and 2 for Kotoshogiku-Myogiryu. 9 were canceled.

I suppose Kakuryu stands to really rake them in now (or obligingly give them away) with the last bout every day.
