Re:Review of Japanese-Mahjong.com's Game Set

If I was originally considering going for the Sango set, but wanted to upgrade my junk mat at the same time, would I be perfectly happy with that combo set that you mentioned was similar quality to the sango set? Are there any noticeable differences?

Re:What would you Discard

I see the logic in it now. I actually misread your original post too. You said you see no reason to keep the 2 over the 4 on the red. So I agree with you more on that now. My first 2 discards in this hand would still be the Red, then the 2 though. Hoping to draw another pair or to make a pair into a...

Re:What would you Discard

If you keep both the 2-dot and the 4-dot though, if you draw the 3-dot and never end up getting the 3rd 5-dot, that could be your head potentially in the end couldn\'t it? Or another way of thinking about it is if you keep the 2-dot, and draw both the 3-dot and the 5-dot, you\'re one step closer to ...

Re:My hand of the week

Ah I made a mistake in the OP you\'re right... I guess the dora wasn\'t the 1 crack, it was some other random crack. I\'ll change the OP. Nice catch ^^

Re:What would you Discard

@Gemma I agree with you that depending on at what stage of the hand you\'re in, the decision could change easily. I\'d probably follow the same patter. Knowing when to call is definitely one of my weaknesses but If you\'re 3/4ths of the way through and haven\'t progressed your hand at all, I guess i...

Re:What would you Discard

If you\'re thinking something that we haven\'t thought of yet, i\'d like to hear your reasoning. The goal of these questions are generating discussions and learning after all. I\'ll take a stab at at either way though. While cutting the 2-dot leaves the possibility for all 3 outcomes just like the r...

My hand of the week

Re:What would you Discard

Cut the Red This way you have many options. If you complete another set of 3, go for the yakuman / 3pungs all sets. If you complete another pair, kick the extra 1 and go for all pairs. If you draw the 3 pin, kick one of your sets and go for 3 pungs. It\'d be a complete waste to call on a hand like t...

Re:To Reach or Not To Reach

Too late in the hand to hold out for tanyao. I\'d reach in a heartbeat.

You guys are forgetting about the possible sanshoku if you win off of the 4.

Request round 2: Followup on What would you dis.

It seems lately that the WWYD problems are getting less and less responses, but I wanted to make a request concerning them anyway. For the people that posted them, I\'d love to hear what they actually discarded in the end, if they felt it was a good decision, and why they chose that tile.

Re:What Would You Discard (10/17)

if you\'re just playing east, i\'d be thinking the chances of a comeback aren\'t very high at this state. Tanyao and Pinfu are out of the question and unless you want to just end it, you can\'t really be thinking about calling anything anyway. You need to reach. That being said, i\'d want to cut wha...

Request a Column: When to open a hand

Hey guys, I would like to request a column on when one should open their hand and when to keep it closed. I know I have a bad habit of either opening too early, or keeping my hand closed longer than I should. Recently i\'ve been working on this and think i\'m getting better, but I still cannot large...
