Re:Pro Parlor Question

It is usually the case that playing at 100yen=1000point rate is better by financial point of view. This is because: 1) a fee for one game is relatively expensive at 0.5 or 0.3 parlors by comparing the amount you get from winning. 2) There is a tip for 1pattsu-tsumo or hands with red-tiles. This tip ...

Re:Wanna some

Well not so many people have answered, but I\'m posting the answers. 1)A: 8-dot Reason: discarding any manzu is not a good idea since, only draws of pinzu will lead you to tenpai. 4-dot is not good enough since, you are losing possibility of tanyao-pinfu-dora2 8-dot is best because tsumo 2-dot / 5-d...

Re:Do You Believe in Nagare?

Pachinko, is there any skill involved in it and can you be a winning player in the long run? Kinda is it like blackjack, that if you know how to count cards and change the size of your bets you can become a winning player, and what does the "house" think of this and do to counter this if it\'s poss...

Re:Do You Believe in Nagare?

The former is I believe what Nagare should be defined as. However, there ARE people who believe in nagare as \"magical force\".(esp. among eldery people in Japan) I was wandering wheter which connotation is mostly believed by Western people. Kojima Takeo pro is famous for this thinking(latter). He p...

Re:Do You Believe in

People, I think we are going off from the topic a little bit. Of cource there is luck or randamness or probability in Mahjong since you cannot see every single tile and other players tiles. What I meant is... it just can be applied to any field. Supporse there is a good golf player, but some how he\...

Re:Do You Believe in "Nagare"?

wow thanks for many responses Certainly, unlike chess, mahjong contains a lot of luck. However, what I also wanted to ask is \"once you feel the tide of luck -nagare-, do you change your form or style of mahjong?\" Would you become like \"oh I feel I\'m super lucky today, so I\'m gonna push any situ...

Do You Believe in "Nagare"?

I was just curious, how many of you truly believe in \"Nagare\"? Direct translation of this term maybe \"The Tide of Luck\". You know... when you feel like you can tsumo any thing you wish to. Or you can win mangan-hands twice or three times in row. I wanted to compare this tendency between Japanese...

Re:Claiming the Pei in 3 Player Mah Jong

hm,I thought claimed Pei would be considered as kind of \"An-kan\", but in Tenhou it seems, claimed Pei is same as discarding. What would be standard rule for this? I think that should be seen as kind of \"kan\", so people can ron it and \"Chan-kan\" will be added for one yaku. Since many people cla...

I meant his excellence, but after hearing people saying he\'s cheating, maybe he\'s doing something. I guess it is possible to cheat in Ron2. However, it\'s not something like using hacking tools. But if you have 4accounts it\'s possible to cheat, but you know that takes a lot of money, time and con...
