Leaving home for mahjong tournament in Paris, some snowflakes, 40 minutes early. Bus arrive and leaves on time. Lucky as the bus to Arlanda was 2(!) hours late due to the weather, I mean fuck, I wouldn’t even call this snow. Apparently a lot of trains were also canceled.
On the bus, playing some ketsui doing some minor progress after getting used to the bumpy driver. But ends up seasick after a good 50 minutes. Try to get some sleep.
Apparently southern Sweden has been struck by the storm, Sven.
Sunday, November 10th, 2013. Korean mahjong league tournament.
My individual account of each hanchan.
about keeping track of progress.
Here is my individual account of the pastry tournament. (Copenhagen Open) All eight hanchans. Real names have been omitted in order to protect the identities of those who raged, were just stupidly lucky or otherwise.
If you’re a follower of our humble blog, you’d know that the Osamuko community has a solid and active European contingent, who frequently get together on the EMA tournament circuit. Indeed we’ve collected a rather respectable array of tournament wins and rankings, that I’ve often thought it would be nice, if a little show-offish, to have a page celebrating all the accomplishments and loot we’ve hauled back from our conquests. Earlier this week our motley crew headed to picturesque Austria to show them some of our own architecture, the magnificent pon palaces and chi castles that litter the little Tenhou lobby we call our own.
Hi, readers and web-lurking bots copypasting this post into sites other than osamuko.com right now. You may have noticed (or computed) my absence for the last couple of weeks. You know that old wives’ tale, “you should do things other than your main activity to become better at it?” Well, I didn’t know about it either, but hey, it works. A few weeks playing League of Legends and dettaching myself from mahjong allowed me to get a better perspective on certain aspects that I had been considering but never took seriously enough. When you learn something new from scratch, there are a lot of things involved in the learning process that can’t be taught… or can they?
Today we talk about the league, detectives and Hagiwara
Still in development, but already very reliable and with more features. If you’d like to contribute a translation to your language, let me know.
Thanks to everybody that helped me with this new version (and past versions). There’s a (currently unlinked) about page here as well: http://arcturus.su/tenhou/ranking/about.html
As this is a blog written in English, I think we can assume most people reading it probably don’t have access to mahjong parlors. Then again, this is a mahjong blog as well, so some people have. The point here is, is betting your money in a parlor a good idea? Ever? We will use a few different approaches to analyze this.
The conclusion, if you want to skip a lot of reading, is: only if you drink a lot of free drinks while you play.
