May 2017, Day 11, Ura v Shodai

Yesterday Shodai reversed his position against Sokokurai and slipped out of danger for the win. Today he gets a taste of his own medicine when Ura seemingly vanishes out of thin air, reappearing behind him and ushering Shodai out for the okuridashi (rear push out) victory. Ura improves to an impressive 9-2, still in contention for the championship, while Shodai finishes the day at 8-3.
