For the first time ever I will root for Asashoryu against Kaio tomorrow, in order to avoid an embarrassing playoff.

Kaio, Toyozakura, Miyabiyama and Asasekeryu have to win at least 3 (Shaking head...) matches in a row tomorrow to win the Yusho. And I don't see Asashuryu losing twice on the same day.

My guess is that it will be Asashoryu who wins the Yusho once again.

If Asa wins, its another "boring" Asa yusho. If he loses, then comes an interesting playoff. Not sure what to root for.

If there are 4/5 people in the playoff tomorrow, how is the Jun-Yusho awarded? Is it to everyone, or just the person who makes it the farthest against the Yusho winner?

For everyone.

The jun-yūshō is awarded to all rikishi with the same number of wins behind the yūshō winner, regardless of playoff. So likely there will be multiple jun-yūshō "awards" (it is inofficial anyway) tomorrow. A single jun-yūshō can only happen if both Kaiō and Toyozakura lose tomorrow... well, which isn't that unlikely thinking about it. Btw, there can't be a 5-man playoff tomorrow. If there will be a playoff it will be with 3 or 4 rikishi, depending on Toyozakura.

Alright, I agree that under those circumstances, a maegashira yusho is very unlikely. I guess I can root for Kaio after all. :-)

If there is a 4-way playoff, how will the matchups be decided? Seeding by rank, or drawing lots? In other words, can Kaio and Asashoryu face each other in the "semifinal"?

It is by drawing lots, so Kaiō - Asashōryū could be in the first round, yes. But does it matter? No, not really...

could be fun to see a play-off with Kaio-Asa-Asa2 and watch what seemed possible a couple of bashos ago .... an Asa-Asa matchup...

I am sorry, but I don't quite understand your last sentence ...

Perhaps Doitsuyama means that it doesn't matter whether Asashoryu beats Kaio in the first play-off round, or the second...

To look at the bright side, a Kaio-Shoryu first round match-up would mean that a Maegashira will finally win a playoff bout. Okay, just against another Maegashira, but let's not worry about details. :-P

Exactly! Well, I also had in mind the possibility of Kaiō winning against Asashōryū. I just reckon that the possibility of a Maegashira winning this yūshō is low enough that no seeding is needed to help the top dogs (which is what seeding is for).

I see, it's a scary thought for Toyozakura to win the yusho?! Somehow I feel the chance is close to nill.
