  • A potential meat-grinder in the upper Maegashira

  1. Now then lads, don’t be mean about my boy Kagayaki. He is still improving and, at 26, he is entering his prime. He’s very good at what he does, but so far hasn’t been quite good enough at it to make it any higher: and of course he struggles against lateral movement. I’m hoping that the “big train” can keep chugging forward. Prediction: 8-7 and a M1 slot for January.
