This poll is a little different to the usual 'annual polls'.

It will be done on a points basis. 

For the three questions, you need to choose one rikishi. You MUST choose three different rikishis (otherwise, you are automatically disqualified).

For the first question, choose which rikishi you think will be ranked at S1W (Sekiwake 1 West) on the January 2025 banzuke.

For the second question, choose which rikishi you think will be ranked at K1W (Komusubi1 West) on the January 2025 banzuke.

For the first question, choose which rikishi you think will be ranked at M1W (Maegashira 1 West) on the January 2025 banzuke.

I will then score the results as follows, depending on where your selected rikishi actually ends up on the banzuke....

NB: There are intentionally no points for Ozekis or Yokozunas! 

Q1: Sekiwake 1 West
Sekiwake 1 West = 10pts
Other Sekiwake ranks (S1E, S2E etc) = 9pts
Komusubi 1 East = 8pts
Other Komusubi ranks (K1W, K2e etc) = 7pts
M1E = 6pts
M1W = 5pts
M2 (E or W) = 4pts
M3 (E or W) = 3pts
M4 (E or W) = 2pts
M5 (E or W) = 1pt

Q2: Komusubi 1 West
Komusubi 1 West = 10pts
Other Komusubi ranks (K1E, K2E etc) = 9pts
M1E = 8pts
M1W = 7pts
M2E = 6pts
M2W = 5pts
M3 (E or W) = 4pts
M4 (E or W) = 3pts
M5 (E or W) = 2pts
Sekiwake (any) = 1pt

Q1: Maegashira 1 West
Maegashira 1 West = 10pts
M1E = 9pts
M2E = 8pts
M2W = 7pts
M3E = 6pts
M3W = 5pts
M4 (E or W) = 4pts
M5 (E or W) = 3pts
Komusubi (any) = 2pts
Sekiwake (any) = 1pt

As always, please expand on your vote in the comments below. These are used (if needed) as a tie-breaker.

S1W - Daieisho. I don't think he's making Ozeki just yet.
K1W - Wakamotoharu. He should be in the sanyaku, but might struggle to get back to Sekiwake (or bounce around a bit between those ranks).
M1W - Gonoyama. A bit of a hunch. I think he could well become a joi-jin stalwart in 2024, but probably not a sanyaku mainstay.

Atamifuji for sekiwake. Strong year for the Isegahama boy
Asanoyama for komusubi. Return in sanyaku ranks for the former ozeki, but nowhere near regaining his former rank
Takakeisho for maegashira. Fall in disgrace after being plagued with injuries

Ten of us are 'playing' this poll.

For the January 2025 banzuke....

Daieisho and Atamifuji have both been picked by three players to be Sekiwakes.

Asanoyama and Atamifuji are the only two rikishi to be picked multiple times to be Komusubis.

Hokutofuji and Asanoyama get multiple picks to head the top of the joi-jin....

 

We'll check back in around Christmas time to see who can claim the yusho in this poll.
