Hakuho will have been a blessing or curse for many today as there were a large number of tie-breaks.

Panda got the first blessing and overcame Chankoyama to go 7-5 and needs one more to get rid of that horrible soft kadoban tag. Chanko is looking a losing record in the face now. Gary lost and is also 5-7. Scott's excellent basho marched on another day and he is now tied for the lead with Owl and Andonishiki. Seb and Rupert are at the edge of the dohyo on 5-7 records (Rupert has been bizarrely unlucky with 10 AADs). Jan's short respite yesterday lapsed back into misery today. Renaud beat Sergio to go 7-5. Sergio needs to win out now and must be careful about demotion to Juryo. Sadly, Ganzo's horrific basho means he is certain to go down, but I have no doubt we'll be seeing him bounce straight back. And Mark is one win from Makuuchi survival.

Hal lost to go 5-7 in Juryo. Stefan finally broke that losing streak. Can he streak on his webcam to 10-5? And Unko battles back to 6-6. In Makushita Ronnie is at parity, but newbie Steve can celebrate an early kachi-koshi. He will want to pick up as many wins as possible on the last few days for a bigger jump up the table for March.

Scott is the hot favourite to return to sanyaku but he may well need one of the three sekiwake to lose 9. This is quite likely, but he may force his way in anyway with a strong finish.Stefan has an outside chance of a Makuuchi return if he goes at least 2-1 in the last three days. And Chisha could be in trouble as there are four strong promotion candidates and he is looking a bit precarious. Seven wins should save him, but six could see him in Juryo.

As we enter the final fifth of the tournament I am in an extremely strong position, especially in the pre-bashos. I have GTB yusho plus serious yusho chances in Hoshitori, Roto, Fantasy Sumo, Salarycap and Oracle. UDH, Paper Oyakata and Bingo all look good too...and if Tamawashi wins the yusho, or Hakuho loses two more, I could do well in Norizo Cup as well. The dailies are pretty strong as well: Fourth in Tipspiel and Toto, top ten in Bench, near the top ten in TTT, and a chance for smaller change in SG. But despite all this, I'm still miserable about my pathetic SG performance. I am very dissatisfied with my picking and am extremely lucky to be 7-5. Just hoping to limp over the line for 8 wins and then I can start from scratch in March.

A lucky final three days could see a remarkable Masters score...so...

I told myself that if I was demoted to Juryo after 12 years in Makuuchi , I would stop everything.

So if I manage to get this 8th win , I’ll continue a little bit.

A good day.

Fought back to 6-6 in Bench.  Well in the yusho race in SG with 9-3.  A strong day in DST should make KK quite manageable.  Won in Quad for a nine-way tie for 4th.  Won in Toto for 7-5 and a large tie for 15th.

Losses in Odd, TUG, and ISP.  Only the TUG loss has any yusho impact.

The slow slip continues, to a four-way tie for 5th in Juryo Game.

Senshuraku is definitely the time to meet me. I almost always lose. Sadly however I don't think the guy who set the torikumi puts yusho contenders up against the yokozuna. You might get Yamashiro. And in fact, as he is already MK, they may give you to me after all. We shall see.

All the yusho contenders lost today, allowing Andonishiki to take the sole lead. He is up against Chankoyama tomorrow, so she will be doing her best for the Centipedes. Shout out to Seb for a gritty comeback. He needs two more for KK. Renaud got his eighth so we can happily see him continuing to play the games. Winning records also for Mark and Streaking Stefan...congrats. Sadly Chisha lost and is now on damage control.

Another irritating loss in SG. I really shouldn't be losing bouts like that. Lost in Bench too...also poor picking. Toto and Tipspiel at least are good. And I am very happy with my comeback to KK in Quad. The pre-bashos weren't great today, mostly because my lads were all fighting each other. I just need to perform reasonably well over the final weekend and it should be pretty good.

With a lot of luck in tiebreakers. I’m picking so badly since two years.

Anyway this was my only goal this time so happy to reach it.

I never imagined I would say, "Thank goodness I was wrong on both picks in TTT," but thank goodness I was wrong on both picks in TTT, because I JUST missed the entry deadlines to bring the fusen bout into play, and if I lost another yusho (or KK or what have you) over missing a fusen bout, I was going to go into a blind and/ or depressed rage this morning.

Otherwise, a mixed day, with a horrid 3 in SG to keep my head-to-head record with Seb even more horribly unbalanced, another loss in ISP (for 5-8), my 13th miss in Odd, and a miserable 2 points in Bench for 6-7.  I don't know if a 6-9 from M14 would keep me in Makuuchi, so I'd better get at least one more win.   And I think I'm on a four-day losing streak in TUG.

But another great day in DST actually has me within striking distance of the top 10 (with two more great days).  I'm now also in a 6-way tie for the jun-yusho in Quad.  Also secured KK in Toto.  I feel like I've never done better than 9-6 in Toto, but don't hold me to that.

Looking like quite possibly no points from Oracle.  4-way tie for 6th in Juryo Game.

I noticed some remarks about my possible streaking.
Rest assured that I always wear some some kind of
clothing when I am in the vicinity of a webcam.
Two days left of this basho. In Sumo Game, my picks
have always failed miserably two days or more each basho.
Since that has not happened yet this basho, I fear
that the statistics will catch up with me this weekend.

Owl and Scott both won strongly but it may be in vain as Andonishiki also won with a decent score. Owl is the only one who has a slight chance but he'd have to score three more than Ando just to take it past the scoring TB. Scott would need an absolute miracle as he is six points behind Ando. Panda got an easy win at last and it was his eighth so he is no longer kadoban. Gary and Miyako fell to losing records. Seb and Rupe brought it back to 7-7. Ganzo managed a little damage control but Jan lost again and Chisha was droning - very unlike him.

Hal went MK today but the webcam was on again for Stefan as he streaked to a ninth win. He can win the yusho tomorrow if he wins and Musashimaru loses by virtue of his excellent scoring. Leave that webcam on overnight, Stefan. One more could see him back in Makuuchi. Unko got his eighth as well. Well done.

Ronnie has to wait until the last day for his eighth. Steve has made short work of the drones at the bottom of Makushita and is now 10-4.

Won Toto and SG...both vital ones...and scored well in Tipspiel...also vital. Everything else was a washout. The pre-basho games weren't great but at this stage I just need average scoring to limp over the line. A decent final day could still net me a lot of points.

Looks like I'm out of all yusho races now.  Since I'm facing Andonishiki in SG, a win means I'll get the jun-yusho (possibly shared).  I still may share it, even with a loss.  That will almost certainly be my best game this basho.

Perhaps a lot of small points elsewhere.  Including, of all things, Toto.

It wasn't to be for Owl and Scott as they both had nightmares while Andonishiki picked shrewdly again (including a fine punt on Yoshikaze that had me nodding my head in appreciation). Ando is a very deserving winner...so no harm done. They can be satisfied with jun yusho, significant Masters points and nice promotions for March. In Scott's case, it will be a return to komusubi. Congrats.

Panda overcame Yamashiro for a change and went 9-6 in the end to make it look a bit better. Gary and Chanko secured vital wins that will keep them in sanyaku. Seb and Rup both completed their heroic comebacks. Amazing. Sergio got a good score today but 6-9 is below his level and he knows it. Mark and Renaud both lost but have winning records. And it was more misery for Jan and Ganzo. Jan is probably safe in Makuuchi but Ganzo will be breathing Juryo air for a time.

Speaking of Juryo...Hal won to make it 7-8. Stefan turned off his webcam and lost. If he had won, he'd have been rather upset with Gurowake's droning line-up against his rival but it never came to that. He probably won't be promoted to Makuuchi, but he should be right on its doorstep next time. Unko went 9-6 in the end.

Ronnie got his KK on the last day. Steve was slaughtered by a drone - which does tend to happen on upset days.

Not a bad tournament for the Centipedes but no prizes this time. See you in March.
