For apparent reasons i call this the Whenever, Wherever Basho. Poll has no specific closing date.

Enjoy some music while you're waiting:




Disclaimer/introduction for new players

The Wall:

If a sumotori gets his first makekoshi (MK = losing record) in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall" (KK = winning record, means missing the wall, which is a good thing). For makuuchi this basho it's Kiribayama, Kotonowaka and Kotoshoho. For Kotoshohoit's his first try in makuuchi. In juryo we have 0 guys to fight the wall.



Asanoyama was promoted to Ozeki after last basho. If gets a MK, he will not be demoted, but ranked as kadoban Ozeki. A follow-up MK means demotion.

Takakeisho is kadoban after his 7-8 in march, it's his 2nd time. Will he manage to stay Ozeki this time?


Guess the colour of the giant macaron:

One of the prices for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best Pâtisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.

I am betting on both Asanoyama and Takakeisho going KK next basho. I’m more confident on Asanoyama but feel like both will post good 10+ win records.

I'm predicting the new guys will have trouble but the ozeki will both make it. I also think it should be a mask-aron in honor of the 'rona.
