Here is the 'annual poll' about Harumafuji.

Please put down your prediction in the comments below (including the exact total number of wins for 2017), so we can reflect, and announce a yusho winner at the end of the year....

Please also include your guess at the 'Doitsuyama Bonus question' - namely the most wins-in-a-row that Harumafuji will be able to string together during 2017. He lost his last bout of 2016, so his first possible winning streak will start with win number 1 on Day 1 of the January basho.


(This poll was originally started by Kaiguma.)

Y2E. 65-66 wins. Two at 12 or more wins. One yusho. Best streak at 14 in a row across two bashos.

Y1W, I expect a pretty good year once his arm heals up. If it keeps bothering him though...

Intai by 01/2018, 2 basho with 12+ wins, 40 or less wins for 2017, 8 straight wins. Bonus prediction: zero yushos. Stick a fork in him. He's done.

Even though he's my favorite he'll be intai by Jan 2018. He'll get one more yusho though.  No more than 10 wins in a row.

Injury plagued, but he`ll scrape through the year to finish at Y1W on Hatsu 2018. 11 win streak. 2 basho with 12 or more wins which will include a 13-2 yusho. 49 wins for 2017.

Y1E, 4 12+ bashos (including two yushos), 75 wins.  

 

His longest streak......  19!

My guess - Y1W with 2 x 12+ wins, 69 wins overall... 

And i will lean out the window saying 23 winstreak.

Edit: I was too optimistic, really sad to see him perform like this, his days may be numbered :(

66 wins. Max streak 14 wins, split between the end of one basho and the beginning of the next.

Y1E, 4 12+ bashos (although, I use 11 wins as the bar for acceptable yokozuna performance), 61 wins.  

Streak of 13

Y2E, 3 basho with 12+ wins, 56 wins total, will eke out one yusho but caliculating based on one kyujo.

Currently Harry's best streak for 2017 is 10 wins - and he does have another yusho.  I hope he does not intai! (Bye,bye...)

Harumafuji's 2017 was mixed, to say the least...

Jan - Y1W (4-3-8)
Mar - Y2E (10-5)
May - Y2E (11-4)
Jul - Y1W (11-4)
Sep - Y1W (11-4 Y)
Nov - Y1E (0-3-12)

There is still a possibility that Harumafuji might go intai, before the next banzuke is published.  But if he does not, his rank on the January 2018 banzuke should be  Y2E.  Three players guessed this correctly (barring an intai, in which case I will have to update this post....).  They are MumboJumbo, James Jett and Finngall.

Harumafuji never obtained 12 or more wins in any of the bashos of 2017 in regulation time....  However, he did win 12 bouts in September, if you include his kettei-sen win.  Rocks was the only player to say either zero or one, so I'm going to give him the nod on that one.

Harumafuji got exactly 47 wins for 2017.  Nobody went for that bracket.  The closest guess was from WAKATAKE (49-50).

Harumafuji's longest winning streak was 10 wins (Day 1 to Day 10 of the May basho).  Only Rocks guessed this correctly.

Looking at the comments, and the various votes, I think WAKATAKE did slightly more than Rocks to claim the yusho, if Harumafuji is ranked on the January 2018 torikumi....  If he goes intai before then, then the yusho goes to Rocks.

So, (if no intai)

WAKATAKE (Yushowinner...), Rocks (Secondprize...)

or (if intai)

Rocks (Yushowinner...), WAKATAKE (Secondprize...)

Harumafuji has announced his intai, and so will not be recorded on the January 2018 banzuke.  His intai was predicted by Kintamayama, Bumpkin, Morty and Rocks.

So, there is a mono-ii...

Rocks (Yushowinner...), WAKATAKE (Secondprize...)

Omedetou to Rocks.
