I came in 4th with 7700 points...I think. When I played with them, I noticed a few things. Half the time, they go for Dama-Ten. Other half they reached. They were building hands extremely fast. I was almost always a bit slow (1 shan ten before they reached). There were so many instances of reach where I had to fold against them. Reaching obviously did not work against them, and they usually got their hands to tenpai when a draw occurred even after I reached. The only exception was when I reached with a
while having 2
's already (Chi Tois). Then I got to San An Kou tenpai and they never ended up dealing in, despite being in Dama-Ten. Other times, you would have random tsumos. What really brought me down was the beginning, where I dealt into a 7700 point hand (that and dealing into another hand through a suji trick). After that, I could not recover. Is there any tips to dealing with all this? I know that part of it was luck that I got to 4th place, however it feels like I've hit a wall. How should I improve my Mah Jong from here?
