Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

Shirluban, lets say you draw the 5th tile while south, and riichi with it, west draws 4th, north draws 3rd, east draws 2nd last, and you draw the last tile :)

Re:Dutch Red 5 Tournament

I must say I\'d rather have more waiting between the games instead of not being able to play the game to the end if I end up in a slow table.

Re:Question about Renho and Chiho

If I understand correctly, the info given by b4k4ni04, EMA rules are in conflict with a source I would call reliable, and make much more sense. Thank you. Just asking because I\'m making some sort of improvement plan-list and these things are exactly what I\'m after, better explained situations and ...

Question about Renho and Chiho

First to quote EMA rules: CHIHO Winning on self-draw in the very first un-interrupted go-around. RENHO Winning on a discard in the very first un-interrupted go-around. Does chiho apply to south only, or to every players first draw? Can you score renho while being east, from a discard of north? or do...

Re:Dealer continuance & 5 sticks

Agreed with Barticle, that should be clarified in the rules. I\'ve been having problem with this thanks to my streaks of luck while being dealer.

Re:Turning newbies into 'ok' players - list of hints?

The more you play the more you gain experience the more levels you get, life is just like a MMORPG. Hints: Keep your hand concealed, though few exceptions, making your hand open limits your hand. Opening your hand is reasonable in some situations, but basically I do things according to score, whethe...

Re:Yakuman and Reach

Su anko tenpai is usually double pon wait, and every other yakuman hand where the end result might not be a yakuman, I\'d reach. In cases like kokushi I wouldnt reach if it\'s obvious I\'m going for it, but I think the reach can be used some sort of a disguise, because nobody expects you to reach a ...

since the case is only to yakumans/kokushi, the chan-kan yaku is irrelevant

Re:Dutch Red 5 Tournament

lets say shuffling and building the wall takes a minute, the dice roll and breaking the wall another minute, everyone has 5 seconds time to make their move, and scoring would take a minute, this would make an exhaustive draw hand 9 minutes long. (5 seconds times 18 discards times four people divided...

Re:Dutch Red 5 Tournament

in European Mahjong Championship 2010 (ECR2010) in Hannover, the time issue isn\'t a problem, theres 2 hours reserved for each hanchan (there will be 7 total), this is good to know, everyone will surely get their both east turns.

Re:Anime Evolution

way too complicated in contrast to \"regular\" rules, and things like pinfu having no requirement of an open ended wait, also revealing ura-dora in the beginning? I wouldn\'t play these rules, just my opinion.

Re:Dutch Red 5 Tournament

I don\'t know about tournaments and stuff but have you ever considered using chess game clocks for speeding up things? I haven\'t seen something like this with Mahjong but it is widely used in other mind sports. That would be quite expensive solution, since tournament organisers would have to buy 1...

Re:Dutch Red 5 Tournament

Renchan should stay, but in order to make use of all the available round time, things like scoring should be faster by removing the subtotals except for 1 after east round(Everyone is aiming for win and big score anyways), and introduce etiquette/strategy about the discarding. I see people picking u...

Re:Another Pinfu question and EMA rules

Even when having four of the same tile in your hand and it\'s your winner, if wait is open ended, it\'s still valid pinfu, as long as you have the required 4 chows and a valueless pair in the end and you\'re not furiten. The tenpai thing is true, if you for example have 5555 in your hand and 3 sets ...
