Re: Logical fallacies & Mahjong

One thing is that you shouldn't focus on stats other than long term placing too much, because they can be misleading. Something like play in rate doesn't tell you the value of hands you play into and the situation. If you're in a big lead and you play into a cheap hand from someone who's not the dea...

Re: Differences between real life and online mahjong?

People who I play/have played with are easy going & indulgent. They aren't bothered much by stuff like that. Especially in friendly games. Surely, you will occasionally meet snob players or even total assholes but I think they're rare. Even if you make some mistakes, you will USUALLY be politel...

Re: Tenhou progress thread

In that one I figure the guy had already decided that he was either going to win the hand or get last anyway and he had 2 dora and it's not that likely the guy with red and white dragon also has 2 green dragons, so... That or he was annoyed and just wanted to throw it down and if it got ron'd he cou...

Re: Tenhou progress thread

In a span of 6 hanchans, 2 have ended with yakuman hands: yakuman1.jpg yakuman2.jpg In the daisangen one, the player who played in was in last and it was their last dealer turn in south 3. In the shousuushii one, the player on the left actually discarded east wind after the 3 other wind calls by the...

Re: WWYD 2016-03-11

I picked 7-crak too for the same reasons as Shirluban. I would not call pon on any tile, but I don't think calling pon is bad if you want to. (5m is hard to use completely in other players' hands with 2 4m and 2 6m, especially if 4m/6m is the tile discarded, and there's still a suuankou chance, and ...

Re: Differences between real life and online mahjong?

Thanks for the reply Senechal. :) I'm not too worried about calling slowly or getting distracted myself, but I do want to know what other people are going to think about it if it happens. On that note there isn't any "time limit" per discard is there? I imagine it's probably a little annoy...

Differences between real life and online mahjong?

I figure it's probable I'll someday play mahjong in real life against people who play regularly, so if that day comes I don't want to look too foolish. So, does anyone know things to think about when transitioning from online play to offline? Not just rules, but things like etiquette or customs too....

Re: Krabman's Tenhou adventures

I agree with the discard choices, 6-crak or white-dra , so the only thing to go over is your reasoning. I don't think 6m is usually dangerous right now, so I wouldn't hold on to it for that reason, unless you're really worried about playing into a dealer hand and getting last, but the only problem i...

Interesting read, and pushing midgame

pic1.jpg It's only east 1, but we're already behind. This hand is worth 3900(+1900) in two ways, honitsu or two dora (dora is 4 bamboo, south wind was called from shimocha). Considering shimocha's riichi, what would you discard? pic2.jpg It might seem strange, but I discarded a non suji 7 over a no...

Haha, no. But I do still play it sometimes, and would think about streaming Stepmania. Recently it's just been Splatoon on my stream but I'll try streaming more tenhou.

Re: Do you riichi?

I wouldn't riichi cause you can get 1st without winning the hand, and even if you don't get tenpai you might still win, but if you play into any hands, you probably won't get first. Against kamicha riichi I would discard any suji, honor tile, and probably terminals, but if I drew any other tile I'd ...

Re: Is this tile (more or less) safe?

Jumping in on an old topic, but I think it's safer here. If I wanted to hold onto my hand I wouldn't mind discarding 2-dot , especially if it's not the first discard after riichi. I would also much prefer discarding 2-dot over 2-crak 8-crak 8-bam and even 1-bam . But, after 14 discards I think it de...

Re: Tenhou Riichi twitch streamer

I didn't know there was a mahjong tag, I was using and following the tenhou tag. I've streamed tenhou before (http://www.twitch.tv/ddr_dan) but I don't really stream regularly and I also stream other stuff. I still play pretty regularly though, so I could stream if people wanted to watch.

Re: Do you riichi?

I don't know any theories besides my own, but, it looks like the 1 in 145 is even worse than the 1 in 134. Both can improve to 1345 on one end, but 134 can improve to 1234 which is like a lone 4 but better, and 145 can improve to 1456, which is just a lone 1. I would still think the 2/5 is dangerous...
