It\'s hard to know what to do unless you post dora, seat/round, and how many points everyone has. In regards to the first hand, I think no one has mentioned that it\'s a suuankou (4 concealed pongs) isshanten (1 away from tenpai). If you\'re in last place and its the last round, then discarding red 5m and hoping to draw to a pair is definitely the only thing to do.

Under normal circumstances, I\'d discard the red 5m and win on anything, but if I drew to any of the pairs I\'d definitely riichi for the yakuman assuming the situation was right.

I would go for 4 an ko (I think I said that before) because I really really want to win with that hand ;)

2-dot 3-dot 4-dot 6-bam 6-bam 6-bam 7-bam 7-bam 8-bam 8-bam 9-bam white-dra white-dra white-dra
I don\'t renember dora, but I think it was none of those.
So what would be best to discard here?
The best would be to say tsumo.

If it helps ... from the full zoomed picture

player on right has discarded:
5-crak 6-crak 7-crak 8-crak 9-crak
6-bam 9-bam
2-dot, 8-dot
red-dra green-dra green-dra :south


Opposite player:
2-dot 7-dot 9-dot Image

2-bam 4-bam 6-bam 7-bam
1-crak and what looks almost certainly a 7-crak
:west :west :north


Left player:
1-bam 1-bam 9-bam
1-crak 2-crak 7-crak 9-crak 9-crak
red-dra red-dra :north :north :south


Which I think would leave me ditching the 4-crak
