Guess what? I’ve found some new Tenhou screenshots to discuss!
Is it better to insta-Riichi or wait to improve our hand?
I won’t consider keeping 3p because of 1p in our discards.
23 234 55667
145678 are our tiles of interest.
11 tiles in total which normally is enough to take a shot at damaten. The problem is that our final wait will not be that much better than the current one. Our best option seems to be the 3-sided wait after we draw 47s. Drawing 58s will give Pinfu but we lose Tanyao & miss Iipeiko if we win on yasume 1s.
All in all, I think insta-Riichi may just be better in this case. If there are any flaws in my thinking, please let me know!
Do you insta Riichi such hands as Oya? I think waiting to get shanpon tenpai on Hatsu + something else may be a better option.
3. WAIT VS VALUE
I think that if the points were even, taking that 3-sided wait would be better but since we’re in 4th place it’s better to take a shot at Sanshoku & discard 78p. I’m not sure about this judgement, though since it’s still early in the Hanchan.
It’s already S2 and I think it’s better to beatori. Kamicha’s Tsumo will keep us close to the other guys. Dealing in is just bad. We have two genbutsu which is enough to kick-off defense.
Oya Riichi is always dangerous but our hand is quite flexible. We have Dora ankou & calling ability. I think it’s ok to push 1p.
3s is one-chance so I think 2s is ok for pushing. Not sure about Riichi. Our wait is kinda bad so I think it’s better to dama.
That’s all for today.
May Yakuman be with you!
