Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 15
Congratulations to Asashimaru on his first ever yusho in any division. This is the most important one. He beat Sekiwake Flohru to fend off the spirited efforts of Kuroimori, who is likely to be rewarded with a sanyaku berth in July.
Gaijingai took the Juryo yusho in a tie-break that was decided by Kakuryu's win.
Makushita went to a four-way tie-break, that was quickly decided in favour of Baggunin on points scored. This was also a first-ever yusho.
And finally, Ozeki Yamashiro saved his rank with some...erm...interesting picks on senshuraku. It is good that we still have representatives at both top ranks.
Congratulations to all the winners! See you in July.

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 14
ScreechingOwl lost as Asashimaru won, meaning the latter has a golden chance to win a first yusho tomorrow. He fights powerful Sekiwake Flohru for the prize. Even if he loses, only Kuroimori has a realistic chance of overturning him. In order to do so, he will have to outscore Asashimaru by two points.
Gaijingai is in pole position for the Juryo yusho, but if he loses and Mananoyama wins (with at least the same score), it will slip from his grasp. And in Makushita sole leader Wakatouryu can win with a victory. A loss could put him in danger as several hopefuls below have scores that are similar or higher.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka's ozeki run was stopped today by Yokozuna Pandaazuma, but a win tomorrow could extend his run until next tournament at least. The Panda will be instrumental in the fate of Ozeki Yamashiro as well as they meet on senshuraku with the ozeki needing a win to keep his rank. His head-to-head record against the yokozuna will be encouraging, but it will still be a nervy musubi-no-ichiban.
Good luck to all the contenders!

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 13
We're down to two leaders in Makuuchi: ScreechingOwl and Asashimaru both have 10-3 records going into the final weekend. Asashimaru has a big scoring advantage, however, so two more wins would probably give him a first-ever yusho in any division.
It's the same story in Juryo as Gaijingai and Yeditoshi blaze the trail. Makushita is led by a trio with 11 wins.
Sekiwake Metzinowaka needs to win his final two days for ozeki promotion. Ozeki Yamashiro needs one more win to keep the rank.

Natsu Basho 2018 - Day 11
Natsunoyama fell to a loss in a tight match and has let the wolves in the door. Four fellow Maegashira join the long-time leader with 8 wins.
Juryo is led by four players also on 8 wins, including former Makuuchi mainstay Gaijingai. Makushita's frontrunners have been whittled down to two; namely Kotosho and Baggunin, who each have only one loss.
