Re: Rinshan Kaihô and the Tsumo Fu

I'm under the impression that you would get the 2 fu only after an ankan, or a chain that is started with an ankan. But I don't know, it seems to be yet another "Roll-your-own-rules" point. When Koromo (not a Kodomo) discards 1p and Saki goes Kan! Kan! Kan! Tsumo! Koromo pays for the full hand. (In ...

Re: another mahjong book

Well, yes. The thing is that any hand with six or more han gets another rank that supersedes mangan, but you are guaranteed to be over 2000 points. 6 han pinfu: 20 * 2 ^ (6+2) = 20 * 256 = 5120 = 5200. (Also with 5 hand you would get 2600, which is over the limit). If you use a chart to settle score...

Re: Question from beginer

So close to a rare yakuman (best hands possible), though. Shame you discarded that green-dra and the 2-bam earlier.

Re: another mahjong book

People will make divination out of anything. There was an interesting one with Tantrix tiles. It is indeed a nice set, however. :)

Re: Hand requirement (Ryanpeikou) question

As has been said, you get the highest hand, in this case the Ryanpeikou. But if you've opened your hand... tough luck. No Ryanpeikou (or Iipeikou for that matter), no Tsumo, no Pinfu, no Riichi... In this case you still get Chinitsu for a mangan, though. 2000 in your app. (That is the base value, as...

Re: Tenhou progress thread

So, a player sitting East tosses a white dragon and it gets claimed. Later, when he sees two exposed pungs of dragons, red and white, he proceeds to toss the green one so his opponent can complete the triplet. Is that right? Now that it's posted for public view, I bet he has a lot more friends that...

Your 5-crak discard on round 5 also tilts towards the 2-crak . You wouldn't want to draw 3-dot 2-bam and end up still furiten on a 2-crak 5-crak wait...

Re: Kime gets Tenhou on Tenhou!

With an irrelevant pinfu ippeikou combination and dora dora. Nice hand by itself, but as a tenhou it shines above everything. :)

Re: kokushimusou (thirteen orphans)

A Yakuman is always painful when you have to pay it in full. Somewhere in this forum there has to be a video of a game of mine in Tenhou being busted out (I was already in last) by kamicha on "kan, kan, tsumo" yielding a kazoe yakuman only by virtue of three kan-dora.
