(Anyone else not seeing the lower division torikumi results updated on the JSA site? It's still in the middle of Sandanme.)

On days 13-15, only 1/3 of the low rankers are active.  They start the day's matches later.

I mean the results of matches already fought have not been updated since the middle of Sandmanme. They are usually pretty quick with the updates but not today.

The low-rankers are updated as a group after a shimpan change.

Kaisho with a deep emotional bow to the dohyo after his match. I hope a shock intai isn't incoming...

Kaisho's loss today is making Ura's chance of returning to sekitorihood that much closer.  To be safe, Ura needs to win one more.

Chiyonokuni one win from the Juryo yusho.

Very much in control of his own destiny.

Looks like a sure thing.  If he does not win it all, I will commit seppuku he will intai.

Oki ... this debut is enough to break a man. Imagine if ends 0-15, falls so far he never makes it back to Juryo and his one and only appearance as a sekitori is winless.

Tomokaze fell to Ms11 after 0-0-15 at the same rank.

For all we know they'll pair him with somebody from the lower division on the final day to maybe give him a chance of winning.

Hokuseiho with his 7th win in Jonidan. There's no one left at 6-0 so that's two yusho in two tournaments for him.  He'll surely soon rise to a level where his size isn't enough to counter the skill level of his opponents but he has certainly made an impressive debut.

What's the mono-ii policy this basho? I haven't been paying attention, but I see ex-Takamisakari standing off to the side while the other four shimpan have gathered like usual in the middle.

Lost his glasses, perhaps?

Man, Enho really has lousy forward moving sense. He got baited into a bullrush by Meisei, and then - hilarity ensues: he wound up holding Meisei's sagari in front of the masu seats.

And the bout was going so well by his standards up to then too...

Ooh, a loss by tsukite by Kotoshoho. The first in Makuuchi since May 2016 and only 18th overall.

Is three Jonokuchi yusho a record?  Especially three that are 11 years apart?

It matches the existing record held by Ikeru Kenta,  but his was only over 2 years.

For the curious, the record for jonidan yusho is 2 (multiple), sandanme is 3 (Karatsuumi and Wakanojo), makushita is 3 (Amanoyama, Daikiko, Dewanoshima, Nakao, Shinko, Wakanoyama), juryo is 5 (Masurao) and makuuchi is.... I forget. ;-)

And for the curiouser, the most yusho across all non-makuuchi divisions that anyone has managed to win is 6 - 8 rikishi share that honour, including Chiyonokuni. Shimanoumi and Tochinoshin are the sekitori with the most lower division yusho, at 5 (tying with Jokoryu). Of course, 4 of Tochinoshin's were back to back returning from makushita, and Shimanoumi also had 2 back to back juryo yusho.

Is it too early to contemplate the possibility of a playoff in the Top Division?

Yusho winner on day one, retirements, levels of injury, states of mind.......its never too early to speculate that's what fills half the comments.

Going by memory, only this guy with three JK-Yushos under his belt comes to my mind:

EDIT: Seiyashi was quicker! ;-)
