Another bunch of screenshots…

Oorasu. Fighting for 3rd place. I felt that calling 2m here wasn’t all that good. This hand had potential for 5800 with 5m. Or even a Mangan with aka 5m xD I also didn’t want to wait on Pinzu tiles, seeing Toimen’s (apparent) Pinzu Honitsu. My plan was to develop my Pinzu shape and end up with 25m ryanmen in tenpai. It worked. I got 3p later on and Toimen dealt in with 5m.
Do you think that was a good move? It wasn’t early and I risked furiten in case of gettin 2p.
My poor Riichi judgment was tested here.
Riichi Pinfu with — well…. a two sided + 1 wait. However, I don’t think I need to win that BADLY. Dealing in is a disaster. On the other hand, I only have 1 genbutsu against Toimen.
Toimen’s Tsumo throws Shimocha down to the snakepit and it doesn’t necessarily mean losing 1st.
What do you think? Would the decision be different if this was Hanchan?
We’re iishanten. Dealing 8s means waiting for 27p to Riichi Dora (2). Both kanchans could improve with a bit of luck.
However, is dealing 1p here playable? Souzu shape could be looked at as 456 77 78 with 9 tiles to get 2 groups and a pair. Best scenario: we get 6s and 7p for Tanpin Dora 2 ryanmen tenpai 😀
Opponents have barely discarded Manzu tiles so this might not be a good option. It’s not that early either & we don’t need to aim for a high scoring hand. I simply love pointless mulling xD
WWYD? 2 pairs should be kept. 6s gives the widest ukeire: 47(9)m4p8s. Looking at Manzu as 56 789, I discarded 9m which could’ve led to a lame tanki tenpai. Old habits…
Shanpon tenpai with 3 outs. I decided to deal 6s and wait to improve the wait with 7m68p. Neither of them came 😀 The round ended in Ryuukyoku with Shimocha in tenpai.
I think in such situations, the pressure of an early Riichi is more important than our wait.
Even though the number of tiles to improve to ryanmen was decent, I gave my opponents time to build their hands. If I had declared Riichi, Kamicha would’ve probably folded right away, Toimen could’ve pushed if he had had a good hand & Shimocha would’ve probably gone all in which would’ve given me a good chance for Ron.
What do you think?
My decision was to pursue Sanshoku. I discarded 8p. Looking back, I can’t believe how I could’ve missed Chinitsu here… Or Chuuren Poutou!
BTW: I lately got Chuuren tenpai in real life! Sadly, I didn’t take a picture… Toimen had Riichi and I was waiting on 7m which was suji against Toimen. To our surprise, the person to win that game was Shimocha. Kuitan Dora 1 😀 I wish that had happened on camera. One of my best Mahjong moments!
May Yakuman be with you!
