Nagoya Basho 2017 - Day 15
Of the three main Makuuchi yusho contenders, Komusubi Ganzohnesushi and Konosato emerged victorious. By virtue of his superior scoring, the komusubi won the tie-break with ease and can celebrate his first Makuuchi yusho after an incredible EIGHT jun yusho. No longer the bridesmaid, Ganzohnesushi is now the bride. Congratulations!
Juryo was decided in favour of Genya yesterday, but it was a fairly hairy day for long-time Makushita leader Slavikofuji, who fell to Toriazuma, allowing Inazuma in the back door. Needing three more wins to force a second tie-break, Inazuma managed two...and so just fell short. Congratulations, therefore, to Slavikofuji.
Congratulations to all the prize winners. See you in September for the Aki basho.

Nagoya Basho 2017 - Day 14
Konosato was indeed beaten by Kaiomitsuki, setting up a very interesting final day in Makuuchi. Three leaders: Kaiomitsuki, Komusubi Ganzohnesushi and Konosato avoid each other and so six other players one win behind can harbour faint hopes of a comeback win if all the leaders lose. Kaiomitsuki is in pole position by virtue of his superior points score, but there are some who can overturn him. Plenty of potential excitement in store.
Juryo, by contrast, is very simple: Congratulations to Genya, who is now two wins ahead and therefore our yusho winner.
Makushita is almost as simple. Slavikofuji is now one win ahead of Inazuma and also three points ahead so even a loss will lead to yusho if he stays ahead on points.
Good luck to all the contenders.

Nagoya Basho 2017 - Day 13
With two days remaining, Konosato takes pole position and will fight major rival Kaiomitsuki tomorrow. Four other hopefuls will be hoping for a Kaiomitsuki victory.
In Juryo Genya's winning streak finally ended and Fujiyama won, bringing him within one win of the leader. And in Makushita, Slavikofuji won again. Only two pursuers can realistically catch him now: Toriazuma and Inazuma.

Nagoya Basho 2017 - Day 12
Kaiomitsuki and Sumio both lost today, allowing Konosato back into the yusho race with a 9-3 record. Two sanyaku contenders have emerged as possible spoilers in the forms of Komusubi Ganzohnesushi and Komusubi Taka.
Genya's winning streak extends to 9 and he takes a two-win lead over the field in Juryo with only three days remaining. And Slavikofuji is the sole leader of Makushita, with three pursuers hoping for a slip.

Nagoya Basho 2017 - Day 10
Makuuchi leader Rupatengu lost today, allowing Sumio and the recently high-flying Kaiomitsuki to draw level with 8-2 records. Three players are on their tail and they will be hoping for winning records tomorrow.
Juryo is now led by Fujiyama and Genya. And four hopefuls lead Makushita, including up-and-coming phenomenon Toriazuma, currently the points leader for all three divisions.
