Haru Basho 2020 - Day 15
Sumio easily won his bout with Kibooyama and Ganzohnesushi was not able to win his own bout so it's a sixth Makuuchi yusho for the former Ozeki. He now draws level with Norizo for most Makuuchi yusho all-time. Congratulations!
In Juryo Akoushousan won again to win the yusho outright. Makushita yusho winner Akaitori actually lost today but he won't be worried about that.
At the top of the banzuke, Yokozuna Pandaazuma was unable to master the uncertainty of the tournament and will be 'soft' kadoban in May. This means two more losing records would lead to a loss of the top rank. Ozeki Andonishiki today put in an impressive performance to finish 8-7. He will be keeping his Ozeki east spot as well as sadly Ozeki Yamashiro was unable to secure a winning record while kadoban and he will be demoted to sekiwake in May. He will have one chance to return if he wins ten in that tournament.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you all in May (I hope!)

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 14
Sumio lost and fell back into the chasing group. Three players can now win the tournament: Sumio, Ganzohnesushi or Kibooyama. The former two are way ahead on points so the latter would need to beat Sumio tomorrow and hope Ganzohnesushi loses. If Ganzohnesushi and Sumio both win, a tie-break could be very close indeed.
In Juryo Akoushousan is almost home even if he loses tomorrow by virtue of a superior score over all his rivals. And in Makushita, Akaitori won again to cap off an impressive performance with a day-14 yusho. Congratulations.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Haru Basho 2020 - Day 13
Sumio won again and retained sole lead. He is being chased by Ganzohnesushi and Kibooyama.
The merry-go-round in Juryo moved again and we now have the trio of Akoushousan, Survivor and Kyoju in the lead. Akaitori continues his majestic run in Makushita and is now two wins clear with only two days left.
The two ozeki met today and Andonishiki won a close match leaving them both with 6-7 records. Ozeki Yamashiro will be demoted and Ozeki Andonishiki will be kadoban if they don't both win their final two matches.
