Re:What would you do?

Reach.
Maybe I\'d consider not if 2 or so 6-crak is already discarded but none of the 9-crak. A guaranteed top on the win is sooooo valuable...

Re:Tenhou.net handles list

What\'s ur dan and rating now Arcade? Edit: Seems u need to be a paying costumer also, might not be worth it then. 4 : 5danR1950 3 : 7danR2100 You? Looks like it\'s going to be installed from today, so I checked out a few things. Out of the 150,000 active accounts, 100 players at most for each styl...

Re:Garthe is broke.....let's help a brother out

Catch some fish at the mahjong parlors that go for 2.0 in Shinjuku?
Or hopefully board some ship named \"Espoir\" and play some rock-paper-scissors there...

Tenhou: Arcade

The new table (phoenix table) which is going to be installed from next month has a restriction of 7dan & R2000. Completely nuts. :woohoo:

Re:What Do You Think of the WSoM Rules?

I like the idea of three winds qualifing for yaku. The points I don\'t like are: Paying 30 points to the hand winner regardless of who throws the winning tile. :angry: There\'s no kuisagari. Benefits of keeping a hand concealed are almost null. This probably results in people almost always going for...

Re:Mahjong playing speed

Theres a site called Maru-Jan where 1 second per discard tables can be played, if I remember correctly. The time pool is 10 seconds.

The fast tables at tenhou are the limit for me. :woohoo:

Re:Dora Experiment

We should add the rule of \"No honor tiles on the 1st discard\" to this, Janki-style mahjong.

The drawback is that if anyone knows you\'re following the restrictions, discarding dora means the same as reach. :side:

Re:Mahjong Manga

There is actually someone who thinks that by playing correctly you can see what the ura-dora is and thus know every time if it\'s going to hit or not. And he\'s pretty famous here too. You can\'t? :ohmy: Oh, and the Pope playing mahjong along with quotes from Genesis was just hillarious. Amen, :S

Re:History of Mahjong: Cheating

Mahjong competitions aren\'t really competitions as they\'re called; players must play an excess of 1000 games to determine their skill, and most competitions play nowhere close to as many games. Mahjong is made more of simple luck rather than skill or technique when it comes to short term tournamen...

Re:History of Mahjong: Cheating

Some data I found at tenhou. I couldn\'t find data for pure menzen tsumo%, but I guess this would suffice. Correlation coefficient of tsumo% to a player\'s rating: -0.2815 Correlation coefficient is a value indicating the strength of relationships between two variables, the maximum being 1. If menze...

Re:Mahjong Manga

My favorites are ofcourse Akagi, Ten, Usagi, Tenpai, and most of what Katayama made. Saki is getting close to the list too. What I like about saki is that mahjong is drawn to be more of a sport rather than gambling contrary to other typical mahjong-manga-worlds. The gameplay itself basicly reflectin...

Re:The Undisputed King of Ron2

1.94 in a span of 10000 games is just simply impossible. Either he\'s cheating or only plays against the weakest; sadly, the skill factor isn\'t THAT large in mahjong compared to luck which flattens over time. =/ A player in tenhou once had a rating of 2415, an average of 1.98 over a 300 game span a...
