So, another overstep, then: Behold the leaderboard for most spirited rikishi - after Nakabi! The method is simple. I gave 3 points for the winners, 2 points for second places, and 1 point for a bronze medal - each day. 
I hope you'll enjoy!

Day 13
Makuuchi
1. Endo
2. Meisei

3. Wakatakakage | Hoshoryu | Terunofuji (wow, I can't remember seeing a threeway before...)
Juryo
1. Ura
2. Takakento
3. Oho

 

STANDINGS
Overall Makuuchi: 

1. Takakeisho (21 pts)
2. Wakatakage | Meisei (both 13 pts)
4. Hoshoryu (7 pts)
5. Enho (6 pts)

Takakeisho's win is a done deal, but there's a big fight for 2nd place between Wakatakakage and Meisei, and also for the 4th (but of course it's not that easy for Enho to gain more points in Makuuchi)! Anyway, it will all go down on this weekend. 

Overall Juryo:

1. Ura (27 pts)
2. Takakento (15 pts)
3. Oho | Nishikigi (both 7pts)
5. Takagenji | Enho (both 5 pts)

Oho or Nishikigi? Takagenji or Enho? We'll see! :)

Day 14
Makuuchi
1. Endo
2. Takakeisho

3. Wakatakakage 
Juryo
1. Ura
2. Takakento
3. Ichiyamamoto

 

STANDINGS
Overall Makuuchi: 

1. Takakeisho (23 pts)
2. Wakatakage (14 pts)
3. Meisei (13 pts)
4. Hoshoryu | Endo (both 7pts)
6. Enho (6 pts)

Wakatakakage is going to senshuraku with a 1-point advantage before Meisei, but also: say hello to Endo, who just appeared in the TOP5. Can he pass Hoshoryu on the last day? 


Overall Juryo:

1. Ura (30 pts)
2. Takakento (17 pts)
3. Oho | Nishikigi (both 7pts)
5. Takagenji | Enho (both 5 pts)

Yesterday's questions haven't been answered yet, but Ichiyamamoto claimed 8th place in overall with today's bronze. He's only 2 points behind Takagenji and Enho! Can he get second place (or better) on the last day, and can he penetrate the TOP5 list?

Day 8: Ura gets 3 pts in Makuuchi and 3 pts in Juryo.  Will they catch him double-dipping?

:D Thanks for the catch! Obviously, it was Oho (as shown on the table below), but I've corrected it.
