Shodai had the Morinaga-sho. No san-sho and also no ken-sho today for Taka-no-sho. Kiribayama got 7 more, yesterday he had 1 as well, Enho added 5.

By my tally, that left Enho with a total of 27 kensho, just one behind Takanosho, who was 10th in the Top 10.  That's pretty good for the wrestler who only had 6 wins this tournament.  

However, if he had won all his scheduled bouts, he would have taken home at least 69 kensho.

Resulting in a 15-0, so on the way he would have been rescheduled to meet the top kensho earners and the big packs ...

Dr. Takasu reported about his basho experience, he was there on day 2, in a masu S seat, that's now the tamari seat for the iji-in, the NSK maintainers.

Dr. Takasu in the best seats, not on sale to the public this basho

He would have liked to place kensho on his favorites Ikioi and Aminishiki, but one is in juryo and the other intai, so he put his "Yes" kensho on the final bout of the day.

Next basho he wants to put some on the new ozeki Shodai. He "met" him last year Aki, also day 2: Shodai fell on him, when he and Ryuden went down together and Shodai's head knocked against Takasu's knee. Shodai recovered immediately from the slight concussion and was worried about the knee, and the 2 then shook hands - those where the days before Corona.

So a first personal sponsor for Shodai

Kyushu and Nagoya seem to have less kensho. Does that suggest that some of the sponsors for Tokyo basho are Kanto only?

That chart is prone to possible misinterpretation given that Kyushu is represented with the Kanji in its first syllable, which is the kanji for 9, while the kanji chosen for the July basho this year was the kanji for 7, from which month it was in.  I still maintain there is nothing wrong with calling the basho this July the postponed Natsu basho, and having the Nagoya one be the actually canceled one, given July is also during the season "Natsu".  Obviously there's no good workaround for November unless you want to dredge up "Fuyu" which doesn't get used otherwise.

No yeah I'm aware of the kanji. Looking at pre-COVID basho, at least for last year, Nagoya and Kyushu have significantly less than the three Tokyo basho and Osaka. And the year before that, Kyushu also has less.
