Recommended Posts

14 - don't know... can see Tamawashi being given a match with Takakeisho...  I'm liking the look of H2O (Akua)

The torikumi makes sense in an unpredictable way, granting the Kyokai yet another win.

Three players are still in contention for the yusho, and Oshirokita has the upper hand in tie-breakers.

Sakura (7-7)
Gurowake (7-7)
Oshirokita (7-7)
Profomisakari (5-8-1)
Jakusotsu (5-9)
Reonito (4-10)
Jejima (4-10)
The Kyokai (4-10)
Hakuhonofan (3-9-2)
WAKATAKE (3-5-6)
shimodahito (3-6-5)
Ryoshishokunin (1-4-9)
chishafuwaku (0-0-14)
sahaven111 (0-2-12)
Seiyashi (kosho)

Hokutofuji's aites: 1. Ishiura, 2. Kotonowaka, 3. Kagayaki, 4. Terutsuyoshi, 5. Chiyotairyu, 6. Hidenoumi, 7. Abi, 8. Chiyonokuni, 9. Kaisei, 10. Sadanoumi, 11. Chiyomaru, 12. Ura, 13. Takanosho, 14. Ichinojo

I basically agree with Oshirokita, but in the hopes of actually winning...

I always think Oshirokita is right, but therefore

 (Yushowinner...)

Sometimes it's worthwhile to be forced to take a second look!  I didn't get a lot else right on the final torikumi (the last two matches of the day, Abi-Takanosho, and Terutsuyoshi-Tochinoshin), so it was pretty much luck.  Given the wait for Day 14 results despite our picks having to come in beforehand and the whole pairing of 7-7s against each other or in other important matches, it's hard to guess what's going to happen.

Comments:
It was pleasing to see Yokozunas Gurowake and Sakura battle for the yusho to the final day, with Oshirokita.
Oshirokita is commended for his fine jun-yusho. He will be considered for promotion to Ozeki with a yusho in January.
Reonito had a disappoing MK this basho. The results for the next basho need to improve greatly, otherwise we hope that Reonito will do the honorable thing.

My performance this basho was not acceptable. I lost focus after a few early losses. Thank you for the leniency of not asking me to hang up my mawashi this time.

I took a look at the likely intrasanyaku schedule for next basho.  We'll be losing one intrasanyaku match from Takakeisho and Takanosho both being present, and the first day with 2 matches this time, thus the day that probably will lose a match next time, was Day 11.  Day 11 is also the day that the East Ozeki faced the West Sekiwake this basho, which will likely be the ranks of those two.  Thus, we will have effectively the same possible schedule as we did this time around.  So much for same-heya sanyaku mixing things up...
