Also, people are talking about how tough a challenge it is for Takakeisho to beat Terunofuji twice...but remember that if he beats him once, and Endo wins his match against Shodai, we've actually got a 3-way playoff. It's entirely possible we could see Endo-Takakeisho fighting for the yusho.

Which means Takakeisho has to win three times in quick succession. That seems even more unlikely given his stamina.

But extremely likely give his raw powe...ah, I can't even type this with a straight face.

So I’m going to put my sansho predictions here:

Shukun-sho for Endo

Kanto-sho for Takayasu if he wins

Gino-sho for Wakatakakage if he wins

Gino-sho for Endo if he gets the yusho

The look on Endo's face to me was just a nervous response to achieving a fantastic result, but yes purely subjective.

Nah that's Endo's trademark thing

In any case, doubtful Endo will get yusho as he is not ranked M17

Very excited for day 15!

My ideal scenario is Terunofuji winning in a playoff ........would love to see the big man reach the top rank he once seemed destined for, and a playoff would put the world's most powerful bowling ball on a run too (Clappingwildly...)

As my surname is "Daley" I could have the shikona "Dairi" = "大理" = Great Logic. Anyone else want to try?

Mine would be "Fuyu"

One thing I hadn't consciously recognized until just now is that Takakeisho could end up not even getting a jun-yusho if he loses to Terunofuji and Endo wins. Endo would finish on 12-3, one behind Teru on 13-2, while Taka would be on 11-4. That would, I strongly suspect, rule out any sort of conditional tsuna run for him in July. Even an 11-4 JY may not be enough, so for Taka forcing a playoff is a minimum I reckon.

Not sure what you're trying to say... Takakeisho can only win a three-way playoff by beating Terunofuji during it at some point. Sure he can lose such a playoff without ever facing Terunofuji, but that's not very relevant.

Takakeisho does have limited stamina, on the other hand Terunofuji is 0-3 in makuuchi playoffs, and 1-4 counting lower divisions.

With Mbovo down is there any way to watch senshuraku live online?

Sansho-:

Gino-sho: Wakatakakage (2nd straight), Endou (4th)

Shukun-sho- Endou, if he gets the yusho (!!)

Kanto-sho: Wakatakakage was a candidate but fell short of the majority needed, so none will be awarded.

2 sansho for Waka would've been a bit much....

And in juryo, Kotoshoho ends 7-8 after a 4-0 start. His 3rd straight MK after having been on a 12 basho KK streak.

I think that might be my name, actually. It's what everyone says to me.

On one of the Mbovo replacement streams they are sure that Endo should not have been awarded the win yesterday.  Hard to see why.  As I understand it, there are three ways to win a bout if you touch down first: 1) a foul (there wasn't one), 2) opponent is in an irrecoverable position when you touch down or step out (if Endo was unrecoverable, then how did Terunofuji lose?), 3) there is some allowance for deliberately touching down first to soften the blow on your opponent (Terunofuji touched down with his right arm, the arm farthest away from Endo: this is a non-argument).  The mono-ii lasted a bit of time because they wanted to be sure that Endo had not touched first with the hair or turned over his foot before Terunofuji touched down.  Neither happened, and Teru was clearly down first, so it was not a difficult call to make once the facts were clear enough.

Can I suggest PMing people with names or links of live-streams just so we don’t draw attention to them? They’re not hard to find, but let’s not make it easier for the NHK lawyers. :)

Sorry, but that looked like a huge dive by Yutakayama to let Shohozan get his KK on day 15. Not just the finish either. He totally refused to move forward and press the initiative, despite Shohozan having nothing really going on in terms of an attack. He Yutakayama even took a voluntary step backwards at one point, seemingly unaccountably.

First big bout of the day coming up. If Bushosan wins and later Chiyonoo loses, we get a tomoesen in Juryo. If Ura and Chiyonoo both win, it’s a two-man playoff. If either Ura or Chiyonoo better the other, that rikishi wins.

And Ura wins with ease. It’s on Chiyonoo now to keep himself alive.

Most of the viewers are not objective, I guess.. Very keenly so-usually local patriot fan boys who can't see or don't want to see something which is against their personal wishes. I get that on my channel- it used to annoy me, but life goes on, apparently. Shut the chat down for your own well-being.

Asanoyama’s indiscretions cost us the first whatever-this-ceremony-is-called with four Ozeki present in quite a while.

What’s this called again? My brain is having a moment.
