I was wondering where this went.  I suppose the first 3 basho usually don't have much scoring and don't need to be done right away so it's not too important to get them done, but I had wondered if the game had disappeared.

Huh? Ishizaki should have left the torch with Tokihayate, who then lost it to Kinbozan.

Unfortunate for me, since I picked Asanoyama hoping the torch would get stuck in makushita this basho. Go Yoshii!

THANK YOU!!! And amazing you noticed the error just a couple minutes after I posted.  I have corrected the results -- try #2, but don't mind the extra set of eyes.
