    In theory Hakuho can win by beating Kakuryu twice tomorrow, but I really doubt that's going to happen.
    The banzuke gods are extremely mean in making Terutsuyoshi and Tomokaze together; I mean, I sort of understand why, because they only want one jun-yusho winner (both currently 11-3) if Hakuho wins the first match tomorrow. But still, mean.
    Abi v. Kotoshogiku in the useless magic white arrows match tomorrow. Hope Abi wins and gets to stay at Komusubi - he's had a good basho. A loss would knock him back down to Maegashira.
    The other really important fight tomorrow is Aoiyama (M2 7-7) v. Daiesho (M3 8-6) - winner will likely join Endo at M1 spot for Aki.

    As of right now, the banzuke for Aki looks something like this:

    Y - Kakuryu, Hakuho
    O - Takayasu, Goeido, Tochinoshin
    S - Takakeisho, Mitakaeumi
    K - Abi*, Hokutofuji
    M1 - Daieisho, Endo
    M2 - Tomokaze, Aoiyama
    M3 = Ichinojo, Asanoyama
    M4 - Shimanoumi, Shodai
    M5 - Kotoshogiku, Tamawashi
    M6 - Ryuden, Chiyotaryu

    (Not sure how they will evaluate Tomokaze, tbh - if he loses this is probably right, if he wins...Does he take the second K spot? easier to do if Abi loses I suppose) Anyways, a lot of fluidity still in the M4 through K spots depending on what happens tomorrow.

      Kakuryu 14-1, Hakuho & Terutsuyoshi 12-3, and that's all she wrote.

      Based on today's results some small adjustments to the projected banzuke:

      Y - Kakuryu, Hakuho
      O - Takayasu, Goeido, Tochinoshin
      S - Takakeisho, Mitakaeumi
      K - Abi*, Hokutofuji
      M1 - Endo, Aoiyama
      M2 - Tomokaze, Daieisho
      M3 = Ichinojo, Asanoyama
      M4 - Tamawashi Shodai
      M5 - Shimanoumi, Chiyotaryu,
      M6 - Kotoshogiku,Terustsuyoshi

        Lots to enjoy on that final day. How Endo managed to stay in that fight with Kotoshogiku was unreal. Abi's henka did the trick for him, and the Yokozuna fight made for a fitting finale.
