That means it's not a masterful defensive play.
>>
>>14670879
What is your criteria? Just the result? Because if so, every time I deal an unsafe tile against someone's riichi and it passes, I make a masterful play. Even though all I really did was get lucky.

You can't make a masterful defensive play by dealing in? What about sashikomi into a 1000 point hand when someone has called all three sangenpai? Many high level players would agree that dealing in to a cheap hand to prevent a large win is a strong defensive tactic, and in the right circumstance, could be considered 'masterful'.

Or is a masterful defensive play about making the discard that has the most consistency and least risk, or that you have strong logic supporting, even if 1% of the time it causes you to deal into a coincidental bad wait?

All of the discard choices kind of suck in every way imaginable. Your only options are 4p or 6s. Of the two, I think 6s is more likely to pass, since four 4s and three 8s are out. But it's a live tile just like 4p so it's very possible you're going to deal into the dealer no matter which one you choose.

You might be tempted to drop the 8m since it's suji but given that it's right next to the dora, you're just asking to get suji trapped. Man tiles in general look super sketchy and in the worst case scenario, north has a chin itsu.

Why this slow and cheap hand was opened just because a yakuhai came out is a better question.
>>
>>14671478
4pin and 6sou seems the only possibilities
>>
>>14671478
I would personally go with 4p.
>>
>>14671478
Looks like a pretty bad situation.
Looking closely, I would discard the 4p. Ron from shimocha is unlikely, after discarding 2s, 5s, 6s - doesn't look like matagi-like suji. Tanki oikake riichi on 5m in E2 doesn't sound like a great idea. Besides oikake probably means that this one is quite big.
Still, it is matagi for toimen - got to rely on those 2s and 3s on the table.
Manzu is probably a bad idea, looks like a big suji trap.
I'm not used to play with dan-ranked players so I don't know whether these arguments apply. Maybe people try to mislead you with unlikely oikake riichi or this kind of stuff.

Under normal circumstances, yes, but with a 20k lead in South 3, no way.

>>14671734
Nope, you don't really need the points and it's early enough that no one will tink you're in tenpai and deal tiles recklessly
>>
>>14671734
Even without riichi, this will still get you around 5k points, which is more than enough to get a comfortable lead for all last I think

2600 deagari, 3900 tsumo.

Mahjong history is a mystery.

Most rules that are said to be unique about Japanese mahjong were played as house rules in manchuria. During WW2, Americans apparently were the first to introduce riichi to the Japanese, but this could be based on a Chinese rule. At first only Double Riichi existed, at the time it was just called Riichi, eventually a rule called Tochuu Riichi came into play which is the riichi we know today, jansous that used this rule labeled their mahjong as Riichi Mahjong, but in japan this name is now archaic. Taiwanese Mahjong also has a double riichi, which proves that riichi came from china

Here's a thought for you. Would you risk your lead because you decided to call riichi?

In this case, I was in a roll. Riichi? Sure, I'll push that delicious sex button. However, it came back to bite me playing right into that ippatsu dealer baiman.

So, in your case, no. Your hand is worth shit. Besides, you can dama that 678 sanshoku and just win the hand that way.
>>
>>14671972
To keep tenpai, 2s.

You have naka suji with 4s, but it's also dora. So, you can wait a bit on that.

For absolute certainty, you get three turns with the haku.

>Also, do you own a junk mat?

What I did in the pic. It wasn't a easy decision and thinking back at it there must be a better choice.
If 3m looks like the best answer at first, what about that early 5m discard? It probably means there's no 36m ryanmen wait, so 3m and 6m have to be considered separatedly.
The question becomes "is a 69m pinfu riichi likely?". Toimen needs a riichi pinfu tsumo or a 1500pts ron on kamicha.
This is where I don't know whether 3m or 6m is the better answer. 3m wait is either tanki, in which case the riichi wouldn't be great, or a penchan, that I would probably discarded early.
>>14672199
As 3rd, oya in all last, I think it is best to keep the possibility to ron otherwise it would probably end up with toimen winning. So haku would go with riichi, providing only one extra safe turn. Declaring my tenpai isn't that important given that other players aren't likely to discard 4s, but wait would be very bad.
Souzu looks pretty dangerous to me, what makes you think it is better than 3/6m?

;_;
>>
>>14680713
Only about 100.

I think it works out statistically though.
There are 136 tiles total, of which 12 are dragons. As you know your hand has 3 of the dragons and 11 other tiles (by your first discard) then that leaves 9 dragons and a total of 125 remaining tiles. In total there are 42 other tiles already dealt out, of which ~3 will be dragons (9 x 42/125) leaving six remaining dragons in the deck. There is also the chance of dragon tiles being in the dead wall, which lowers the number of remaining accessible dragons, assuming the player doesn't call kan, to 5 (9 x 14/125). With 4 players this means each should get 1.25 on average sometime during the game, or in other words in the majority of games in which this scenario occurs you will draw another dragon tile.

Either we slog through 8 rounds of open tanyaos, or end it with a couple of dealer mangans. Such is ari ari in 7447.

Until we get a client that enables us to have hand minimums, and custom rules like getting rid of red 5s, exciting games are going to be far, and few.

I'm sorry if you didn't have fun - if it's any consolation I didn't have much fun either - but I find myself not caring as much when it's late at night and it's just ari ari in 7447. The dumb social aspect of mahjong isn't there: there's no shit talking, and people are generally apathetic since the lack of rating.

South 4 riichi as a dealer is always very rewarding to me. Even in cases where you could escape last place with dama, I've made too many full comebacks to not call it.

I got really lucky with the toimen and kamicha making some pretty stupid discards after my riichi, though.

In seriousness, I don't remember, but mahjong is a game with a lot of facets, so it's going to take you a little while to be able to play it on an intermediate level. Disregard >>14689787 because what they say is a blatant lie.

Start by memorizing yaku and the calling rules (pon has priority over chi, you can only chi from the player to your left, kuikae, etc.) You can focus on the more advanced aspects of the game once you have those memorized and stop making 'no multiplier' hands.

His chances to win weren't that good. Now look at A and B's discard ponds. Calling riichi and then having to discard pinzu hands could be pretty dangerous. I can see why you wouldn't want to call riichi in that situation, although personally I'd have still called it.

>>14690021
With those 7m? I doubt it.
>>
>>14689979
I'm saying that "knowing when to call" isn't even scratching the surface of mahjong strategy. It's basic shit that gets you laughed at by spectators if you don't know it. Example: >>14673965

>>14690007
It's only East 1 so there's no dire need for points yet, 8 of his 12 waits were gone already, it's late in the round so the chances of getting his winning tile were slim, and at this point in the hand, people who were going to push likely had something worth pushing for.
>>
>>14690007
a single wait on the 6 man for a 2han hand doesn't sound that appealing.
>>
>>14690007
Because he was a pussy. All he had to do is discard 5-pin for immediate riichi.
>>
>>14690007
Because his 3 way wait was more than half dead.

8 man? Dead.
9 man? 1 left.
6 man? 3 left (2 in reality, because you have one in your hand.)

It might as well be a penchan or kanchan, not good odds to go for when your hand won't be worth much either way.

>>14690007
It's E1, no one is immediately attacking, and he has two yaku with pinfu and dora, so riichi is the standard "correct" move here.

I think being afraid of pinzu is too cautious in this situation. Your riichi on 5p will likely make other players believe that pinzu as well as manzu are dangerous to discard against you. Also, you can see that the remaining 9m is totally isolated, so if anyone draws it they will deal in if they choose to push or attempt to avoid noten.

Lots of people like to dama when they should riichi. Speaking from personal experience since my riichi rate is now 1-2% lower than it should be.

Not sure if you already know this but you can also choose who plays who on the lobby admin page. You can enter in their names and then start their game.

Let's go with the matchups from the last two games.
First to queue up will be Saki-san, KyuuAA, 悔しい, Corak.

Okay, the first round of the 4jan Championship has been scheduled. Since we had an uneven number of registrants, the bottom eight will play a preliminary round to determine which four proceed to the next round. The rules are standard Tenhou ari-ari, two hanchan, the two players in each match with the highest combined score advance.

For convenience, here are some timers.
Round 1-A (bk201, チヤギ, Nishishi, Mnog): http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/to?iso=20160206T14&p0=1440&msg=4jan2016+Round+1-A
Round 1-B (skskhktk, trakss, 悔しい , TheWild7): http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/to?iso=20160206T05&p0=1440&msg=4jan2016+Round+1-B

If you're playing in this round, please confirm that you're able to make it to your game. You can reply to this post, drop by IRC, or reply to the email that I'm about to send out.
>>
>>14691870
We should do the final table next week at the same time.
>>
2:0 lads.
>>
>>14691885
Hmm, that will be difficult.

I'll confirm via mail in 1-2 days.

You ranked up from complete scrub to almost complete scrub.

You lose your rank after you leave if you aren't using a registered account.

It's registered, I think. Is there any scrub documentation? I literally just picked it up after watching Akagi and don't really know much other than basic play and the Yaku.
>>
>>14692768
Read the OP link or use the Saki Wiki.

You probably shouldn't start right on Tenhou. Play the single player until you get a better feel for the yaku.

>>
>>14692815
I'm doing alright enough that I can win a few games, surely that's okay to use tenhou? But I'll bear it in mind for practice. Once I'm comfortable with the yaku, what do people normally look at? Waits and shapes?

>>14692830
Learning defense (how not to deal into a ron) and tile efficiency (how to make hands faster and preferably bigger).

>>14692830

Question: we all experience the flow in different ways and have our own opinions on its relevance in a game, but do you think it carries over into the next game?

I've noticed I've become reticent towards starting a new game after a win on the basis that I'm most likely running into an overconfidence-fueld loss

Do you try to make exploit winning streaks or back off?
>>
>>14697769
I find the opposite is true. I don't like to start a new game right after a horrible loss as it makes me feel less confident and pay less attention to the game and therefore make more mistakes
>>
>>14697769
I haven't really developed any superstitions honestly. I don't see any patterns, you probably only noticed because you were looking for them
>>
>>14697785
I find this applies to pretty much anything I do, and across everything. If I play badly I normally suck at everything I want to do for the rest of the day
>>
>>14697790
It isn't superstitions, it's psychology. If you lose motivation or become overconfident then you make more mistakes and end up playing poorly. Be glad you don't have this problem
>>
>>14697769
After losses? More often than not, it's a bad idea to play another game because you're mentally reeling from the previous loss. Because of that, you pressure yourself in the next game to win and make up for the previous game. However, that pressure may lead to mistakes and prompt an additional loss.
>>
>>14697799
It's not just if you lose it's how you lose. If you dealt into something stupid you should stop and figure out why.
