Dora Indicator: 5-dot

1-crak 2-crak 7-crak 9-crak 3-bam 3-bam 4-bam 7-bam 9-bam 2-dot 4-dot 6-dot 8-dot 8-dot

I\'d kill the 1-crak 2-crak penchan.

The 2-dot 4-dot 6-dot ryankan is great. The 3-bam 3-bam 4-bam matagi is also good, because even though you already have the 8-dot 8-dot pair it can improve to give you two sequence elements if you draw either a 2-bam or a 4-bam and set you up for an iipeikou.

The sanshoku is not too tempting unless I draw a 3-crak after discarding the 1-crak in which case I may risk furiten and hope for a 4-crak but I doubt it would be worth it.

I\'d want to get mangan out of this hand, either with reach-pin-peikou-dora or reach-pin-dora-dora (if we draw any red fives) and/or tanyao

Haneman or more is possible if we end up with this:

2-bam 2-bam 3-bam 3-bam 4-bam 4-bam 6-bam 7-bam 8-bam 4-dot red-dot 6-dot 8-dot 8-dot

Um 3s i guess or 1m, 8p is also maybe an alternative but my instinct sais 3s...

Before I read anything: 1c.

Idea being, you might need the 3b for a pair if you go sanshoku. Either way, it\'s a tough hand to win with...


HotelFSR, that haneman is almost 100% not happening. :lol:

I don\'t think it\'s all that bad as a starting hand. Poor shan-ten but decent flexibility.

I would fold it though unless it starts hotting up into mangan territory, and keep all the dot tiles.

Well, you did say it was your instinct that is telling you 3 sou is the right discard choice, but I\'d definitely like to hear any reasoning behind it. ^^

The shape is overall not too great, but I would definitely throw the 1m. That grouping of 1-2 is the only one which you cannot really improve and if left around is likely to kill any chances at any yaku that this hand might have.

I suppose the hand kind of suggests a tan pin while hopefully being able to keep dora 1, but I think most of the time it won\'t happen.
