Nagoya Basho 2019 - Day 15
It was heartbreak for Yumezukuri, who has played Sumo Game since 2001 and has never won a Makuuchi yusho. He lost (due to Shohozan's loss to Tochiozan) and allowed Ganzohnesushi in to nip the glory. Ganzohnesushi was the divisional points leader and therefore won the tournament on the first tie-break rule. Congratulations to him on his second Makuuchi yusho.
The Juryo race was already decided but champion Haruibono lost today to jun yusho winner Unkonoyama. He won't mind that, though.
In Makushita both Golynohana and Cucumohana won their bouts and so the latter took the yusho by virtue of a superior points total.
Finally, it was relief for Ozeki Andonishiki as he secured a winning record on the final day and is therefore not kadoban next time.
Congratulations to all the winners. See you in September.

Nagoya Basho 2019 - Day 14
Yumezukuri lost to Ozeki Yamashiro today but is still in control. He needs only to win tomorrow to take home the big prize. If he loses, Ganzohnesushi can take the yusho if he can win his match.
Haruibono wraps up the Juryo yusho a day early. Congratulations! Makushita is between Golynohana and Cucumohana. The latter need only win his match as his score is superior. Golynohana will need to win and hope his rival slips up.
And new Ozeki Andonishiki has recovered to 7-7. He can avoid kadoban next tournament by defeating Sekiwake Norizo.
Good luck to all the players!

Nagoya Basho 2019 - Day 12
Yumezukuri won again and his closest pursuer lost so he is now the hot favourite to take the big prize.
Haruibono lost in Juryo so Mainoumi and Unkonoyama are given renewed hope. And once again the four horsemen of the Makushita apocalypse all won. Amazing.
Sekiwake Norizo lost again and his ozeki run is now over. Ozeki Andonishiki has staged a spirited fightback and he now needs two wins out of three to avoid kadoban.

Nagoya Basho 2019 - Day 11
Another day, another win for Yumezukuri, and he improves to 10-1. Trender is the only player within touching distance.
Haruibono marches on and remains two wins clear in Juryo. And the same four players all won again in Makushita. An epic battle there.
Ozeki Andonishiki has improved and is now 5-6. He needs three out of four to avoid kadoban. Sekiwake Norizo lost again and he must now win out to reach the second-highest rank.
