Pro-level discard-reading

Post by Barticle » Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:41 pm

This Japanese video series has top players giving detailed analyses of their thought processes during play.

The first three episodes have manually translated English captions. They're quite insightful and entertaining.

YES! I'm actually surprised I didn't link that here yet! (I seem to link it in discords whenever the topic comes up :D ) There are a couple other episodes with subtitles (the first Ooi Takaharu - 多井隆晴 one is the only one I know off the top of my head though), and some more have Chinese ones (if that's easier than Japanese for some people). The series in general is a lot of fun to watch.

And the host, Hinata Aiko, was just recently selected to join Abemas in the M-League in the upcoming season.

Thanks, I'll link to it directly:

The person who made the subtitles for the first three episodes actually popped up on Reddit earlier. They don't currently intend to do any more since it took 8-10 hours per episode and the audience for advanced strats in English is relatively small.
