  2. 2. What will be Takakeisho's longest winning streak in 2021? This may include fusensho wins, but does not include any yusho play-offs. He lost on the last day of the November basho, so he starts on zero.

  3. 3. How many yushos and jun-yushos combined will Takakeisho win in 2021?

Takakeisho began his Makunouchi career in January 2017.  He began his sanyaku career in January 2018.  He won his first ever yusho in November 2018. He became an Ozeki (twice!) in 2019. In 2020, he won his second Makunouchi yusho, and his fourth Makunouchi jun-yusho. 

He was the youngest rikishi currently in Makunouchi for every time that this poll was created for the past four years - but no longer. With the likely promotion of Midorifuji (25 days younger than Takakeisho) in January, along with the much younger Kotonowaka, Hoshoryu and Kotoshoho, Takakeisho will begin 2021 as the fifth youngest Makunouchi rikishi.  

How will this young man (aged 24) do in 2021?

Please expand on your votes in the comments below. Please say how many yushos and how many jun-yushos you think that he will win.

Comments will be used as a tie-breaker for deciding yushos at the end of the year, if required.

2 yusho next year, including one in Hatsu to make yokozuna, but not have a great start in Haru. Will get one yusho and jun-yusho while yokozuna

Yokozuna, 10 wins in a row, and I'm coming around to him winning this tournament for some reason. However, I don't see him winning again. Misread the question and didn't include jy in my number. 2 jun yusho.

Yusho in July and December
Jun-yusho in March
close but no cigar the other basho, denying him his rope.

I realise that I am contradicting my predictions for the Makunouchi Yushos poll, but I think one yusho (I said two in the other poll), and two jun-yushos, all mid-year. He will remain an Ozeki.

Ozeki Takakeisho will have won two yusho and two jun-yusho by next January.  He may well amass a 12-bout winning streak.

I see him winning 2 back to back yushos and getting yokozuna by 2022, but not the one in January. 10 wins streak, no jun-yusho.

I've tended to underestimate Takakeisho (I'm not fond of oshi rikishi in general), so I may be doing so again here:

still okeki; 1 yusho 2 jun-yusho; 11 match win streak

I think he will make Yokozuna.

And take 2 Yusho and 2 Jun Yusho.

Almost two-thirds of us think that Takakeisho will be a Yokozuna on the January 2022 banzuke. I suppose that that is still possible.

We seem to think that his longest win-streak will be somewhere between 10 and 14 inclusive. Still early days, but his current longest win streak is one win.

The number of combined yushos and jun-yushos prediction, is almost equally split between 2, 3, and 4. Luckily nobody went with 6. :-)

Let's check back at the end of the year to award a yusho for this poll.
