Wakanohana's duck is quacking again when he went for a hot pick last basho in Daieisho, who eventually barely got his KK. Considering Daieisho had been struggling ever since his yusho, and Terunofuji is almost always the man to beat now, one might almost think that Wakanohana is now less interested in picking surefire wins than picking an "up-and-comer" rikishi whom he feels will catch on fire in the upcoming basho. In that case, Hatsu should be fun given it's traditionally a wildcard basho, so almost half the division are eligible candidates methinks.

Welcome to Wakanohana's Death Note - Hatsu 2022. Pick the rikishi you think Wakanohana will pick for his prediction (archives here), and guess whether Wakanohana will guess rightly or not. Yes, it's a guessing game about a guessing game, and no, there are no prizes up for grabs!

If your choice of rikishi isn't in the above list, pick Others and add the rikishi in the comments below.

This poll closes on 8 January, the day before shonichi.

I'm thinking if Wakanohana is going to go for something off-colour, Abi's the pick he'll go for. Maybe Hoshoryu or Endo, if he wants to be particularly spicy, but Abi is within striking range of a sanyaku return, he's hungry, and much improved. I'm calling Abi for my actual guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if the other two featured.

I haven't really kept up with his picks. I sort of recall him doing back and forth between favorites and semi-long shots. Terunofuji is the obvious choice for man to beat. The curse may break his streak of yushos. We shall see...

I've got you covered...

I really should add a link to that in each poll from now on, though.

Regrettably the poll has to be voided (or left in eternal limbo) because Abema seems to have ditched the Wakanohana prediction segment. We'll see if it comes back next time but I won't recreate the poll for each basho until it does.
