Day 1 against Abi was more than double the number of today against Kiribayama for Teru. Looks like it will be again a basho with a very even distribution of kensho - and as usual now, Shodai late in the rankings.

2nd big pack for Abi - it has to be the first time he's on top the first 3 days. 4 of the 5 leaders in the basho are the last 4 in the rankings now (Nishikigi has 6 now) - all maegashira and strangers to big kensho numbers - and with Kiribayama and Kotonowaka in the top 5 (both way above an ozeki, like Abi above the yokozuna) this is a very unusual sight on the kensho side as well

Slowly getting back to usual patterns - of course one meager win in an early ozeki bout wasn't enough for Shodai to get into the rankings - his bouts won't attract enough sponsors, even against a slightly popular opponent.

This basho might turn out to be Ichinojo's best kensho result ever. He had only half of the day 1 pack for Abi, who remains on top for the first 5 days now - all 3 ozeki combined now at last have slightly more than him. Half of those in the rankings lost today, top and bottom number nearly stay the same and there are the same 10 rikishi as yesterday. I guess we won't have a tenth place with over 50 this time and the top below 300 - Nagoya generally has less kensho.

Due to the extension to 13, Shodai is now in the rankings

Shodai properly made it into the rankings, with an even smaller pack than for the other 2 wins, against sanyaku - just 5 kensho for beating the tournament leader. Mitakeumi likely will drop out of the rankings later on.

Abi is excellent this basho, he might even make it to 100, I'm sure Wakamotoharu was robbed of a good place in the rankings by Inosuke.

The no.1 is more or less fix by now and Shodai firmly in the ranking, but anything can still happen in this gloomy basho.

Unfortunately I didn't save yesterday's page, It would be great if anybody else could provide day 10.

For Natsu Moderna had kensho on Wakamotoharu, Meisei and Tobizaru, this basho they are/were on Ichiyamamoto, Kotoshoho and Kiribayama.

Another gone from the Moderna group due to what they are going against, Corona. 2 of the 3 kensho for the Kotoshoho bout went to the Kiribayama bout, no doubt their 2, Kotoshoho had 2 Moderna ones today and likely also on day 9 when Ichiyamamoto went kyujo, yesterday Kiribayama had these 2.

2 from the 8 for Kotonowaka went to Terunofuji and Hokutofuji, 1 each, 9 Sadogatake kensho were canceled today. http://www.sanspo.com/article/20220720-MGZJPWNFEFK67BFJG3E5TLIDQQ/

If Terunofuji wins the rest, he'll surpass the 300 with ease, the packs will get bigger from now on, a loss on day 13 or 14 would likely still get him there. Takakeisho is more or less fix for No. 2 now, except that Shodai can surpass him if he gets the 2 extra large packs against him and Teru. With only wins against Teru and Wakatakakage, Shodai might still finish 3rd, else Abi should stay there.

As usual Shodai switched off the booster after reaching his goal, his Tanabata wish, escaping kadoban. Looks like Abi will stay in third place, Ichinojo should move to 4th and Shodai might get to 5th. A great number of kensho today in those 7 cancelled bouts, of those Endo and Tobizaru had the most planned - no reports yet about redistribution to other bouts.

Tomorrow with just 13 kensho bouts (16 total) and many kensho attracting rikishi out, the last bout experiences an inflation: though it's Shodai, the bout has maybe 20% more kensho than today's with Wakatakakage: Shodai at last gets treated like an ozeki kensho-wise.

Out of desperation, Nagatanien puts 2 kensho on the first bout, which has 4 in all, 1 or 2 is the usual.

The extra large kensho pack was an incentive for the new Shodai, usually it would rather have made him think negative. 3rd place is one win away, as is 5th now for Ichinojo.

Now reported as 1427 kensho, so the one on the Hokutofuji bout was cancelled, 339 more than last year, most for one day were 128 for day 15. https://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2022072400255&g=spo

Below 300 for the top, the 2 ozeki combined with more kensho than the yokozuna is rare recently. Abi above 100 - already ozeki class.

Watching the kensho parade for the final bout of the tournament, I was reminded of the good old days with Hakuho.  His final day bouts generally reached the 60 prize cap, and today the total was 57.

Tidy little purse for the co-junyusho winner.  I suspect he would have won even without this healthy incentive!  (That is to say, I doubt Takakeisho was in it for the money.)

I am having trouble figuring out how Daieisho reached 30 kensho on Day 11.  

His last win of the tournament was on Day 9, where he picked up a tidy 7 kensho, reaching his kensho total for the tournament.  If he were listed at 30 on Day 11, why did he not appear on Day 9's list with 30 kensho?  He lost on Day 10 and had a fusensho on Day 11 (no kensho gain).

My total for Daieisho is 21.  Happy if someone could set me straight.

One of the occasional mistakes by Nikkan I guess - they likely added the pack of 8 for day 11, though the bout didn't happen. If they were at least right with the 30, it means that Daieisho had a total of 22 - we'll see at the next banzuke.

Edit: several might have got 1 or 2 extra due to redistribution from kyujo canceled bouts
