NJPW G1 Climax 31 updated standings and schedule

The G1 Climax 31 tournament continued today in Yamagata.

With a win today over EVIL, Jeff Cobb ensured that Wednesday's matchup against Kazuchika Okada will decide the B Block winner. EVIL Was eliminated with the defeat. Okada lost to Tama Tonga in today's main event, but was already at 14 points. Cobb can advance to the finals with a win or a draw, while Okada needs a win to advance. 

A Block remains a mess of potential tiebreakers, but the most likely scenario would be Monday's Kota Ibushi vs. KENTA main event will decide who advances to the finals. 

Here are the current standings and the remaining schedule for the tournament:
