Re: WWYD 2012/07/11

9-dot

Agree on the 9-pin. Keeping the 4-man creates a closed wait for the dora 5-man. So, that's a definite improvement. In addition, the potential for a 7-8-9 sanshoku is still permissable; although, the bet for attaining it at this point isn't a great one.

Re: WWYD 2012/07/04

1-crak or 2-crak or 5-dot

If there the rule allows Akai Dora, keep the 5-pin. Otherwise, drop it.

South Round. Nan Ankou. Even if dropping the 1-2 man may slow down development, at least, there's Toi Toi and/or San Ankou as an exit strategy, if the hand doesn't develop fast enough.

Re: WWYD 2012/06/27

5-dot

It'll bring the hand to 1-shanten for pinfu, while retaining possibility for Ittsu. However, if a 3-pin ever gets drawn, gotta kick oneself on the foot.

Re: WWYD 2012/06/20

white-dra

By virtue of one being gone already. Chitoitsu, 1-shanten. Waiting to pair 3-4 Sou or Ton. Preferably pairing on the 3-Sou dora, asap.

Re: Yakuman Club

#4 via Tenhou http://s15.postimage.org/6hbdbqnw7/Yakuman_04_Kazoe.jpg OK. I got to tenpai a full turn before this. Once I got tsumo, my initial reaction was: "Oh no, why didn't I call riichi on this one?" :mrgreen: Likewise, I did not know the hand's true value until it was scored. But initially, I ...

Re: noob question: how should i play in this situation

Well, y'get credit for getting to tenpai, while someone called riichi. But, that credit is immediately lost after dying. :P Granted, I still do some stupid things with my gameplay, of which, I am not open to discuss at the moment. :lol: :lol: Back in my beginner days, I would have made the same mist...

Re: WWYD 2012/06/13

8-crak

Definite safe tile. May or may not interfere in possible development of pinfu + sanshoku. However, a little late to be thinking offensively; but it is nice to still have that option.

Re: Yakuman Club

At first glance, I was like: "How is that not Pao Rule?" Then, then answer is: "Oh, the same person musta dropped the Haku..." :lol: Sure enough, that is the case. And this takes me back to two instances of the Pao Rule happening in front of me. The first one: I was dumb enough to throw the third dr...

Re: Anime Central Tournament (2012)

http://reachmahjong.com/en/2012/05/acen-mahjong-taikai-3-results/#more-3733 No offence to Mr. Horton, but I am fairly certian that I was 4th place at the tournament. That is me (Ryan Crain) sitting at the table in the lower right of the picture (getting my butt handed to me, I may add). I still car...

Rinshan + Haitei

Is the combination of Rinshan + Haitei possible? Impossible, as I managed to read somewhere (can't remember where at the top of my head). For a long time, I presumed the occurrence as impossible. Then, I have another player claiming to have performed the feat. If allowed, this would entail a player ...

Re: WWYD 2012/06/06

Going for Ittsu. This becomes a choice between a Tanki (pair wait) on either 3 or 4 man down the road. Or, a Nobetan (double pair wait) on a 2 or 5 sou down the road. I'd choose Nobetan, for the better chance of getting pinfu, drawing out another 2 sou, or a 5 sou - before getting a 4 or 7 pin. If p...
