Daily News Listing, 4/22/2016


~ The sixth day of the Champion Carnival was held today in Nagoya.

~ In the A BLOCK, Miyahara, Sekimoto, and Super Tiger claimed the points. Then in the B BLOCK, Yoshie automatically gained 2 points due to Kamitani being injured then Sai and Omori as well.


~ Miyahara [3 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss = 7 points]
~ Sekimoto [3 wins, 1 loss = 6 points]
~ Mashimo [2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses = 5 points]
~ Bodyguard [2 wins, 3 losses = 4 points]
~ Akiyama [2 wins, 2 losses = 4 points]
~ Super Tiger [2 wins, 2 losses = 4 points]
~ Nomura [1 win, 4 losses = 2 points]

~ Zeus [3 wins, 1 loss = 6 points]
~ Yoshie [2 win, 1 bye, 1 loss = 6 points]
~ Omori [2 wins, 1 bye, 2 losses = 6 points]
~ Aoki [2 wins, 1 bye, 2 losses = 6 points]
~ Sai [3 wins, 2 losses = 6 points]
~ Lee [1 win, 4 losses = 2 points]
~ Kamitani [1 win, 2 losses, 3 forfeits = 2 points] ~ Out with injury

[Discussion: It appears as if they finalls of the B BLOCK will come down to the Zeus and Aoki match. Though with that said the current 5 way split can leave Sai over Zeus if he beats Yoshie on the final day, though a loss to Aoki. Omori has a loss against Zeus, but a win over Aoki.
In regards to the A BLOCK, Miyahara vs Sekimoto is now clearly positioned to set up the winner of that block. Though I expect they might toy with Akiyama having a chance.]
