Previous poll:

2016

Aminishiki is the oldest Sekitori (a rikishi ranked in either Makunouchi or Juryo).  He is currently 38 years old.

In 2016, thanks to a kyujo basho, he dropped all the way to Juryo.  After an 8-7 at the rank of J8E in November, he will start 2017 in the upper half of the Juryo division (but probably close to the middle).

How will he fare in 2017?

Please include your predictions (be as precise as you can!) in the comments below. :-)

Intai by the middle of the year.  
Can get one more kashikoshi in juryo which will be his only one in 2017 of 8-7.  After moving up in Juryo I see him slipping in the next tournament with another following makekoshi only to throw in the towel after twenty years :-O of active duty.

He will slog into makuuchi with 8-7s and some banzuke luck.

He'll survive the year!  Even at his age, he is too good for Juryo....  But, not that good.  So, best record 9-6, worst record 8-7.

8-7/3-12, will retire in July after a valiant but failed attempt to remain a sekitori.

I guess 2017 can be considered a successful year for Aminishiki.

His record was as follows:-

Jan - J7W (5-10)
Mar - J12W (9-6)
May - J8W (9-6)
Jul - J4W (10-5)
Sep - J2E (10-5 JY)
Nov - M13W (8-7)

It does not look like he is going to retire.  Nearly half of us were correct with this (Benihana, Unkonoyama, Rhyen, Psax, WAKATAKE, chishafuwaku, Tenshinhan, Kotononami, Jejima, Oshirokita and Nantonoyama).

His best record (achieved twice!) was 10-5.  Benihana, Psax and WAKATAKE also got this correct, along with Sumozumo.

His worst record was 5-10, back in January.  

Benihana got this correct too!  (Along with Oshirokita, Tenshinhan and Nantonoyama.)

So, I am very happy to award Benihana a ZENSHO Yusho! (Bigfish...) Omedetou!

Looking at the polls, Oshirokita, Tenshinhan and Nantonoyama are the closest runners-up, and so they can claim a share of the Jun-Yusho. (Secondprize...)
