Also 66 GTB points shared between my entry and @Gurowake's. This should be a high-scoring round unless they do something wacky.

I don't share your optimism.

Did anyone stick their neck out and go for 3 sekiwake or 3 komusubi? It's a very long shot but it could turn this from a high-scoring edition to a train-wreck.

I didn't. But I have had a feeling in my gut all along I should have.

You do know the banzuke is made a couple of days after the basho ends, right? ;-)

I went with 3 Sekiwake and 2 Komusubi ... but hey I am so bad at GTB that by now even I don't believe that'll happen (Clown...)

And they went against the "no Juryo promotions ahead of Makuuchi KK" principle with Yutakayama ahead of Ichiyamamoto (Sigh...)

That's your problem? They went with three Sekiwake.. This GTB is going to be a major train-wreck...

Oh, the three Sekiwake is the major problem; as indicted by the "And," my comment was meant only to highlight yet another inconsistency on their part.

Yes. And it's not like there was no place for him.

Thinking about it again, it suddenly makes sense to me. Asanoyama is a "dead body" and non-existent-he's a place holder, so they promoted the next "legit" guy, even if it's an 8-7 Meisei. I guess.

Him I got, as I saw no one really deserving of a demotion here. The 1 point Chiyonokuni gave me will be joining the other 15 points I got ..
