The scoring is still very good, and with three more days to go we might
see a new record score. Well, almost. Despite it is mathematically still
possible for the leading five to tie or even break the 451 points from
Kyushu 2004, it is not very likely. But the second highest result, 420
points, could well be in danger.

The average score was 25.56 points. Kitano clearly leads today's scores
with 35 points and eleven losses. Some players follow with a 30+ result,
but only a handful can count ten losses. This basho's picture of rather
high scores but rather few losses indicates that there were some "sure
losers" to pick but not many hot candidates for a 7-8 or 6-9 (and thus
for the lower slots).

Doitsuyama and Asashosakari still lead the standings, the Hoshitori
Rijicho is now ten points ahead of his closest pursuer. New third
Gochisozan has three points to the second place.
