Re: Guide to ranking up on tenhou

It is considered the very correct thing to do, 30% is very low for jyoutaku (because jyoutaku is quite slow at reaching tenpai, it is actually very advantageous to have a high naki rate, even up to +40), and unless you are very menzen which is very hard to master (and I don't reccomend you doing so...

Re: Haifu (牌譜) analysis

my mistake probably I always assumed haifu but the correct pronunciation is probably paifu. I think it can be either or I think anyways

Re: Guide to ranking up on tenhou

4) naki (chi or pon)- people in this table like menzen a bit too much. naki skills are very difficult to improve because it is a balance between defense and speed + attack but there is a certain set of skill that you have to master in terms of naki which is atozuke back. I show you some examples 1-...

Re: Guide to ranking up on tenhou

I'll look at any haifu posted in the 'haifu (牌譜) analysis' post if you want. Also I'm not currently part of the Osamuko group. I could put up a haifu for discussion but I'm generally at the level where I can spot my mistakes by myself so I don't usually put up haifu for analysis

Guide to ranking up on tenhou

As you know might know, I play mahjong on tenhou and I would just like to give you a guide on tenhou. Popular beliefs are that tenhou is heavily based on 'avoiding last'. It is true that avoiding fourth place is important but isn't it important anyway? and you actually don't need to think about avoi...

Re: Three Player Mahjong

Apparently there is a similar thread somewhere else for three player mahjong. Anyways I play 'serious' casually in the sense that I will play serious and try to perfect my play but I won't really care about the end result, so even if I come last i won't be annoyed. Tenhou three player is tsumo-zon w...

Haifu (牌譜) analysis

I would be willing to analyse any mahjong haifu if they are easily accessible (such as the tenhou haifu) to suggest improvements in play. Unlike WWYD threads, people can look at the whole haifu and suggest improvements or mistakes that you might not have even noticed. If there is a similar thread li...

Re: What would you do?

It really doesn't matter to be honest, you should push a jihai even if it's fresh to get a yaku ari tenpai and just push for 1st. It really depends on what your aim is for the game. if your playing standard 10-20 uma with 25000 starting points with 30000 'refund' you getting first by pushing will ge...

Re: What would you do?

Let's just assume that if you bail, you come 2nd 90% of the time, and it ends there. If don't push the south , you come second and if you do push the south there are two immediate outcomes, you get ronned in which case you are second anyway, the other , it goes through and you have a chance of actua...
