I normally don't like to kan to a riichi, but...

I didn't have many safe tiles, if any at all, and the only way to go was either to discard whatever few suji there were (not always completely safe) or to go on. Obviously, I couldn't discard 6s, so I decided to kan, maybe expecting to draw a safe tile or to keep myself from being the haitei or something.

Well, that is some dumb luck right there. Tsumo.

Also, I have been getting lucky on 3p.


Kazoe Yakuman:

At first, I thought you were only allowed to play five games, so I just kinda...

Then, I realized you can play as many as you want, and only the last five are computed. orz
So, I would try to make up for the first games, until I dealt into a toitoiz... twice. And it's a shame, because if I didn't get last in that game, I would have ended up with a neat score in the end. On the other hand, I played like shit the whole tonpuusen, but in my defense I was very drowsy since the first tonpuusen.

Then I realized that if I was to play again, I would be basically deleting my first places, and seeing that I didn't get any sleep, and that I'm not using my computer as it died, and the flash player's tiles are so difficult to see, I'm not likely to take first place again, so I decided to call it a day, because let's face it, I wasn't going to win anything from the beginning. The winners will be those who collected a few wins and a yakuman, and the winner of it all will be the one who wins with Shou Suu Shii + Tsuu Ii Sou. So, whatever, I'm happy enough to be in the possitive side.
And, finally:

If I was any more awake, I would keep playing until I get 5 straight wins, but alas.
Sometimes the game shows me some indulgence with some awesome hands

But some others, it just feels like it's seriously trying to fck me over.

And I have also been watching some of Houou's people's matches, and I gotta say... they get better starting hands than me.

In case you're wondering, he did draw 3m only a few draws later, but he had already folded his ankou of South to a riichi, so yeah.
Finally I caught a break and things started going normal again. Sometimes, better than normal...

It was like I couldn't stop winning.

After my turn as dealer ended, I just sat back and played safe for the rest of the hanchan. Everyone else scored minus. Gawd, do I love it when luck is on my side.
