Re: another gameplay question

Opening the hand would considerably decrease its value, limiting it to tanyao only. While a closed hand has tanyao + riichi + maybe menzen tsumo + maybe ura dora. It's also possible to kan the 8m and 5s after riichi for more doras. Without riichi, it's also possible to draw the last 7s and get sanan...

Re: Illegal riichi situation

A player has to reveal his/her hand in only two situations: - she wins - the hand ends in a draw, and she declares to be tenpai. In both cases she still can refuse to show her hand, but then she'll get a penalty (false win without showing -> dead hand ; noten-riichi -> chonbo). She should not disclo...

Re: Why can’t i win with this hand?

You can see the list of yaku here: https://ooyamaneko.net/mahjong/bookcmp/view.php?book=WRCR_2015&chap=6.5 Depending on the exact rule used, there might be a few differences, like some yakuman being scored double yakuman if they end on a special wait, or allowing Nagashi mangan (discarding only 1, 9...

Re: Kong during riichi

I would be surprised if you could get more combinations with less tiles to play with.

Re: Starting game points

Everyone was tenpai but since the dealer did not win, the seats rotated and East 2 became East 3. This isn't EMA rules. You have basically four options to handle dealer's repeats (renchan): • Agari: East stays East if he wins the hand. • Tenpai: East stays East if he's tenpai and nobody win. OR if ...

Re: Starting game points

But everyone was Tenpai, not Noten! You reached! And you know better than to do a noten riichi. ;) Good point. Very good point! Then the score-sheet is wrong: if everyone was tenpai East 3 should be East 2-1 ; if everyone was noten, it should be a chonbo and East 2 again. Unless it's agari renchan ...

Re: Starting game points

The notation 東2-1 means: 東: East round 2: second hand (of East round) -1 first continuance (of the second hand of East round) It's the number of continuances with the same player's winds, not the number of counters on the table. Here 東2 was an exhaustive draw with everybody being noten, hence passin...

Re: Starting game points

AFAIK, there are only two hassles when using sticks: handling negative scores, and actually having sticks. The first is so easy to solve it's a non-issue. I concede not having sticks is a huge burden to use them ; it's also nonsensical. :lol: The argument I usually see against sticks is the impossib...

Re: Analysis of a mahjong hand

I mean more different winning tiles.
With the same number of total winning tiles, it gives a slight more chances to win.
