Natsu Basho 2019 - Day 15
Yokozuna Pandaazuma defeated Ozeki Yamashiro in a high-level tie to put the icing on the cake and take the yusho with a 13-2 record. Yamashiro will unfortunately next basho be kadoban, which means he will need 8 wins to retain his rank. He may have same-rank competition from Sekiwake Andonishiki, who has enough wins with change to be considered for Ozeki promotion.
Haruibono also finished on a song with a superb 10-pointer - the only perfect score of the day - to win the Juryo yusho. And Chelseayama won the Makushita division in only his 3rd basho, and he is on a very strong 34-11 record so far.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you back here in July for the Nagoya tournament.

Natsu Basho 2019 - Day 14
Yokozuna Pandaazuma wrapped up the yusho a day early and this is the first yusho by a Yokozuna since former Yokozuna Kirinoumi (now fighting as Kiriazuma) managed it in 2003.
In Juryo a win tomorrow for Haruibono will give him the prize. A loss could let Yumezukuri in, who could then win the yusho on points scored.
Makushita sees Chelseayama and Reijinguoshan on level terms. Whoever wins has a good chance of winning the tournament. If both lose, there are many other contenders from the chasing pack.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Natsu Basho 2019 - Day 13
Yokozuna Pandaazuma (11-2) and Kibooyama (10-3) both won again and remain locked in a struggle for the Makuuchi yusho.
Yumezukuri slipped up in Juryo, allowing Haruibono to take the sole lead. And Chelseayama now joins Reijinguoshan in the Makushita lead.
Sekiwake Andonishiki secured his eighth win and can now be considered for ozeki promotion. He will want to finish strongly and make it three double-digit records in a row.

Natsu Basho 2019 - Day 12
Yokozuna Pandaazuma's ten-win streak ended today but he remains in the sole lead. Kibooyama is one off the pace.
Yumezukuri and Haruibono are two wins clear in Juryo. Reijinguoshan got back on track after that day-11 loss and stays one ahead of Chelseayama and Airisshu.
