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). This basho we have Wakamotoharu (brother of Wakatakakage) makuuchi. In Juryo we have Kitanowaka, Shimazuumi and newly promoted Tochimaru.

Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai:

An Ozeki winning less then 8 bouts is set on the kadoban status. If he doesn't score 8 wins the following basho, he is demoted to Sekiwake. Shodai and Takakeisho both miracuosly survived their kadoban last basho. Wakatakakage surprised most of us last basho, with his 13-2 Yusho. This sets him on an Ozeki-run. He started at M1 with a 9-6, followed by said yusho at Sekiwake. With 10 more wins he will reach the (unwritten) goal of 32 wins over 3 basho. 11+ wins would be even better an another Yusho will guarantee promotion to Ozeki,

Guess the colour of the giant macaron:

One of the prizes 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.

@Seiyashi, @Zannah and @WAKATAKE with 5 points.

The macaron was

so no tb here.

@Seiyashi and @Zannah had Wakamotoharu not hitting the makuuchi wall, @WAKATAKE had Kitanowaka hitting in juryo. Everything else was answered identical, so @WAKATAKE is out. @Seiyashi posted on May 1st, @Zannah May 7th. Higher risk factor rules for @Seiyashi, congratulations!
