Day 11 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_KYOriQf_o

Not a very noteworthy day outside of Hakuho being the sole leader now after Harumafuji lost his first bout of the basho. Also Kisenosato is out, but that's not really a surprise frankly.

Day 13 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys4aGnkSQgE

Well, it sure seems like Hakuho is winning this one with a two-win lead over Harumafuji, Terunofuji and Takayasu with two days left.

Day 14 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWmsf9uc2AE&t=606s

After a year of nothing for him, Hakuho won this basho with still one day to go. He could go zensho (15-0) if he beats Harumafuji tomorrow.
Tamawashi once again eating shit after some terrible MINDGAMES with my boy Tochinoshin.

Day 15 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wej7T3Nw1T8&t=605s

Zensho yusho for Hakuho with Terunofuji and Tochinoshin of all people as runner-ups. Overall, a pretty eh basho that felt quite pedestrian I guess.

Not a ton to say about the promotions/demotions either. Takayasu will be promoted to ozeki, Kotoshogiku might keep a sanyaku spot and only dropped down to komusubi with Mitakeumi climbing up to sekiwake, and the top maegashira spots will be filled with guys who did 10+ wins this basho (Shodai, Hokutofuji, Takakeisho, Tochinoshin, Ura and Onosho at around M4/M5).
