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). Since there are no first-time promotees to juryo or makuuchi and everybody hit the wall last basho, we'll have only the Ura-special. Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai: Takakeisho got his KK, so he preserved his rank. Shodai on the other hand is kadoban again. It's now the 2nd time he is kadoban and he will be demoted to Sekiwake in case of an MK. 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.
