Here we go again with some Tenhou goodies!
This is a very vague and perhaps trivial situation but I have 2 questions:
- this hand’s not too impressive (nor horrible), but was opening it a good idea since it’s E1(Tonpuusen)? I think I could’ve at least waited for another Hatsu.
- WWYD? Keeping all Souzu tiles is the fastest way to tenpai but keeping 27p gives the possibility of creating another block in Pinzu and perhaps utilizing Dora. In the game I discarded 2p. I wonder if 1s was playable?
I wasn’t sure about that Ron. On second thought, I realized that thanks to Ippatsu, both this win and Tsumo were at least a Mangan. It’s so important to always be on our toes! 😀
WWYD? I think we need Nan here. Souzu are ok too. My choice here is 4m. Ryanmen 25m is weak with 3x2m out and the hand’s waiting on 5m anyway. If we get 3m, we can let 6s go. If we get 58m, we can discard 6m. Does anyone agree?
WWYD? My choice would be between 35s. I initially favored discarding 5s (old ways…) but I think it’s better to go with 3s here. We can keep two pairs that way. Also, 2x4s are out so the wait is weaker than normally.
WWYD? Normally, 7m would be a no-brainer here but since 14 ryanmen in Pinzu is weak (only 3 tiles left), I think it could be better to discard 23p and keep 7m. What do you think?
It’s not early and getting 68m doesn’t reduce our shanten whereas 14p gives 1-shanten. The problem is that we may complete our waits somewhere else first and end up with a weak tenpai.
May Yakuman be with you!
