Aki Basho 2018 - Day 15
Tomatsu beat Komusubi Takanosushi to take a first-ever Makuuchi yusho. 13-2 is fairly hard to achieve in the top division so well done and congratulations!
In Juryo Bolo pipped Survivor to take the Juryo yusho. This is also a maiden yusho (in any division). In Makushita, Reeen lost but the only possible threat, Inazuma, also slipped up and so the yusho goes to the long-time leader. And yes...you guessed it. That's a first-ever championship!
Finally, congratulations to Ozeki Yamashiro for pulling out one of the best line-ups of the day to preserve his status at his exalted rank.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks for playing. See you in November for the final tournament of the year.

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 14
Tomatsu won again to retain the sole lead and a win tomorrow against Komusubi Takanosushi will guarantee a first ever Makuuchi yusho. A loss however could let in any of Sumio, Norizo (who play each other), Mauji and Kazutoyama. Kazutoyama has a clear advantage in a tie.
In Juryo, Bolo is the sole leader but a loss against Survivor tomorrow would likely put the trophy in his opponent's hands. Tenshinhan has an outside chance but will need to win with a high score AND hope that Bolo loses.
There is a similar scenario in Makushita. Leader Reeeen will take the yusho if he wins, but a loss could let in Inazuma, the only player with a good enough score to challenge.
At the top of the banzuke, Ozeki Yamashiro won today but will need to beat Yokozuna Pandaazuma tomorrow in a high-stakes match to retain his rank.
Good luck to all the players!

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 13
Tomatsu was the only one of the leading trio to win and is now the sole leader. A group of five that includes Komusubi Takanosushi is in hot pursuit.
Survivor and Bolo lead Juryo with ten wins. And Reeeen marches on as the sole leader in Makuuchi.
In other news, Komusubi Takanosushi will be ruing that missed tournament as he has now scored 31 wins in the last three active basho, enough for ozeki promotion. Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro lost today and is now up against the wall, needing to win the last two bouts to retain his rank.

Aki Basho 2018 - Day 11
Tomatsu keeps that outstanding 10-match winning streak alive and retains the sole lead with only four days remaining. Sumio, Norizo and Mauji are lurking just one win off the pace.
Juryo finally has a sole leader in Tenshinhan, who could be getting a jump up into Makuuchi if he keeps up the good work. In Makushita Athenayama slipped up and fell into the following group of five that includes the game points leader Reeeen.
