Hi everyone - one yusho later than normal (but that is taken into account in the poll) - as the first yusho of the year has already been won by M17W Tokushoryu.

I have changed this year's questions a little, due to the sparcity on top of the banzuke....

Which ranks do you think will win the Makunouchi yushos in 2019?  

Please write your predictions in the comments below.

Please also mention which rikishi (give names!) you think will actually win the yushos (and how many).

We seem to think that the non-sanyaku yusho in January was a one-off for this year. The higher ranks will dominate for the remainder of the year!

This is going to be a tough poll to 'judge', as we only had 5 yusho winners in 2020 - and this poll was begun after the first.

Question 1

Two yushos (March and November) were won by a Yokozuna or Ozeki. This was predicted by I am the Yokozuna, Oshirokita, Kotononami and Jejima.

Question 2

One yusho (September) was won by a Sekiwake or Komusubi. This was predicted by Oortael, Terao, Morty, Shatsume, Kotononami, Joaoiyama, Kaminariyuki and MumboJumbo.

Question 3

Two yushos (January and July) were won by rikishi ranked below sanyaku (ranked below M16, in fact!). This was predicted by I am the Yokozuna, code_number3, Kintamayama, Oshirokita, Katsunorifuji, Kaminariyuki and WAKATAKE.

The following four players are in two out of the three above lists (difficult to be in all four, due to the cancelled May basho): I am the Yokozuna, Oshirokita, Kotononami and Kaminariyuki.

So, let's check the comments for those four, to see if we can determine a winner...

Only two of them made comments - so it's between Oshirokita and Kaminariyuki to see who gets the yusho (the other will claim the jun-yusho)....

Tokushoryu can be ignored - as he had already won a yusho. (That would have been an impressive prediction back in December of last year, if I had made the poll in time!).

Oshirokita also correctly predicted a yusho for Takakeisho.

 as did Kaminariyuki.

This is getting tough.

Not really ;-)

Kaminariyuki also predicted a yusho for Hakuho - and Oshirokita didn't.

 

So, the yusho goes to Kaminariyuki(Yushowinner...)

The jun-yusho goes to Oshirokita(Secondprize...)

Congratulations to Kaminariyuki!!!  What an amazing accomplishment!

LOL, thanks Joann. And, also arigato Jejima for organizing the poll. The only explanation is a small sample, but I see there are folks on this thread who definitely know more about sumo than I. I shall continue to play my brand of nonsense and will attempt to gambarize in 2021.

Judging from this poll, Asanoyama seems to be underachiever of the year. His result of 10-11-12-10-kyujo is actually pretty good, but almost everyone thought he would win at least one yusho.
