They move the line for KK after the basho, so don't celebrate yet :)

There was a time for a few years back when I first started playing that this game was much harder than it is now, given that there were regularly enough sanyaku to make there be plenty of different ways to make the intra-sanyaku matches, and there were many fewer trains since there were so many options.  In that environment, it was nearly impossible to get a KK before adjustment.  It really amazes me how much easier the game is when there are fewer options that are likely for the Kyokai to take.

I'd prefer if you rethought this pick.

I can see what @Gurowake is thinking though, and it wouldn't surprise me if the Kyokai did something else entirely.

Yes. I consider Tobizaru is a very good possibility. I did think about that seriously.

I actually agree with those above, but as I am so far behind, I need to be a bit risky....

It really depends on if they start with Juryo matches against the bottom of Makuuchi, because if not, there are a lot of demands on the guys near the center of the banzuke and very few available matches in the lower part of the banzuke, making me think they'll need to send lots of maegashira in the top part of the banzuke against the bottom.  If they go with Juryo bouts this is far less necessary, but they've really not done a lot of unneeded Juryo bouts lately.

Whatever I pick, I have to pick differently than kuroimori since he is ranked ahead of me.
