Got some new situations to discuss!
Reading music suggestion:
I wonder why I didn’t go for Honitsu there hmmm….
I decided to call that 5s and change my wait to a suji trap. I’m not sure if that was as sly as intended LOL. 2x6s vs 3x8s – which tile do you think is more likely to be in the wall/come out? Another thing is that by keeping 79s I could upgrade my wait to a 3 sided one with 6s.
We’re chasing Shimocha here. I think Riichi nomi should be avoided with such a point gap. It’s best to discard Nan and aim for Pinfu. 45s ryanmen isn’t perfect at the moment but still good enough (5 outs). What do you think?
There’s only 7s suji for defense here. 4m/4p suji aren’t good since both of them are around Dora(s). I think it’s ok to push this iishanten for now. 2m looks a bit better since Shimocha is not very likely to have 13m wait and 4m is one chance (34m less probable).
Back to late game discards…. Does 8m seem like a good idea here? Last 6m is still unaccounted for. 8m is safe against Toimen. Kamicha didn’t call 8m when Toimen discarded it and he dealt 7m 3 turns ago. I also called 6m from the guy so he’s less likely to have another 67m. Shimocha kept discarding from his hand so he’s the most dangerous here.
Noten payment is not ideal here but better than dealing in.
What would you do? I think Souzu tiles are best for folding here. Pinzu seem much more dangerous.
I decided not to call there even though the shape ain’t that bad (possible SSK)… What would you do?
I’ve recently dealt into a few hands while defending. Online, as well as at an EMA tournament in November. This is another example: I dealt 2s there. There are far better options here, considering Oya’s hand: 1p, 9s, Sha. It’s still not guaranteed that we’ll get away keeping that 2s but in those 3 turns a lot of other safe tiles may pop up.
My take on this is that it’s better to meld 234m for now. My point being that we still get to utilize the Dora later on which will guarantee us 1st place.
Is that good thinking?
Last but not least:
7m was Ponned by Kamicha on the same turn. WWYD?
NEWS: there’s a new Ooi Takaharu video on Maru Jan YT!!! He’s my favorite player!
I have yet to watch it. Maybe I will find some interesting situations for my next post.
May Yakuman be with you!
