  2. 2. How many kinboshis (losses to rikishi ranked below the sanyaku) will Terunofuji give away in 2023? (He gave away one in 2021, and eleven in 2022.) Please say which rikishi you think will get a kinboshi in the comments below.

Terunofuji was made an Ozeki back in 2015. He lost his rank through injury in 2017, and then descended all the way down to Jonidan in 2019. 2021 saw the culmination of an amazing comeback, when he won four yushos, and was promoted to Yokozuna. 2022 was not so good for him, with just one yusho, and pulling out of two bashos, and skipping one basho entirely.

Please expand on your votes in the comments below - this will be used in the case of tie-breakers required at the end of the year to decide the yusho.

My strategy is to put my guess in as early as possible, because I don't think we'll have any real indication of his readiness for Hatsu in time for this poll to close so I don't think it will matter. I don't think Teru will have a good year. Maybe a yusho or two. Maybe more kyujo basho than not. I can definitely see him being injured for most of the year and this resulting in at least one disaster basho that wipes out the rest. 

Hopefully my clairvoyance is wrong.

Unless you expect Takakeisho (and I guess Mitakeumi...) to lose their Ozeki rank and drop out of Sanyaku, they won't be collecting any kinboshi.

 

For my guess I'll put Daieisho and Tamawashi as kinboshi recipients. Beyond that, I dunno.  Takayasu, Ichinojo, Meisei?

As to the "lose to the same opponent three times" bit, I'll say Tamawashi for that one.

Ooops, you are right! it was late and I was half asleep when I wrote that.

Can I amend my guess to Wakatakakage - 2, Hoshoryu - 1, Kotonowaka - 1, Takayasu - 1, Kiribayama - 1

@Jejima The first poll question says "2022" where it should be "2023".

11 kinboshi given out in 2022? That's a lot... I think there will be fewer in 2023 but I still answered 9, how about: Tamawashi, Onosho, Meisei, Ura, Oho, Ichiyamamoto, Kiribayama, Mitakeumi and Hiradoumi.
