Haru Basho 2019 - Day 15
After a valiant and impressive performance, Komusubi Andonishiki came up short on the final day against the formidable Norizo, who won to force and win a yusho tie-break on points scored. 120 points was one of the highest scores on record and miles ahead of the pack, so this was a fully deserved sixth Makuuchi yusho. That number is also a record. Norizo will probably be sekiwake in May and can go for ozeki promotion with 11 wins. Andonishiki can take some consolation in a first appearance at sekiwake next time and he'll need only 8 wins for ozeki promotion.
Juryo was won easily by Mananoyama and a promotion to Makuuchi is certain with that 12-3 record. And in Makushita, Cucumohana can thank his bold Takakeisho prediction for his first yusho.
Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro easily cleared the 8 wins required to keep his rank and is safely in his position for Natsu. Sekiwake Kogaratsu and Sekiwake Natsunoyama both came up short in their ozeki promotion quests but can stay at their rank and have another stab two months from now.
Congratulations to all the victors. See you in May!

Haru Basho 2019 - Day 14
On the penultimate day Komusubi Andonishiki has emerged as the sole leader, but he faces a straight death match for the yusho tomorrow with Norizo. The winner will take all.
Mananoyama leads Juryo 11-3 and is way ahead of the field on points and so is almost certainly the winner regardless of tomorrow's results.
Cucumohana leads Makushita alone but a loss to Mikowosato tomorrow will let in several hopefuls.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Haru Basho 2019 - Day 12
Major upheaval in the Makuuchi divisional race as both leaders lost. This allowed ScreechingOwl and Kazutoyama back into contention and all four now stand at 10-2.
Mananoyama and Kiriazuma now lead Juryo with 9 wins. And two Makushita leaders slipped up today, allowing Cucumohana into the sole lead with three days remaining.
Good news for Ozeki Yamashiro today as he won, moving to 7-5. He now needs just one more win to keep his rank. Sekiwake Kogaratsu also won to secure a winning record. He needs two more for ozeki promotion. Sekiwake Natsunoyama lost in a 10-10 heartbreaker and he now needs to win all three remaining bouts for promotion.

Haru Basho 2019 - Day 11
Norizo and Komusubi Andonishiki kept up the fine work, both scoring ten today. They now lead the top division race with 10-1 records.
There was yet another twist in the Juryo race as Jakusotsu lost. He is now in a group of three at 8-3. And in Makushita Chelseayama lost at last and is now joined at 11-1 by long-time pursuers Airisshu and Cucumohana.
Kadoban Ozeki Yamashiro lost and is 6-5. He has four days to get two more wins. Sekiwake Kogaratsu also lost and, at 7-4, faces an uphill battle to win three more against top-class opposition. And very quietly...out of nowhere...Sekiwake Natsunoyama finds himself with a chance of ozeki promotion if he wins three more.
