WHY WOULD YOU DISCARD Forum

    "What would you discard" (WWYD) questions are a very popular topic of discussion in the Western riichi mahjong community. Recently, there was a WWYD event in Japan featuring "Doppo", who is the 3rd Tenhoui and a professional player representing Saikoui-sen. During the event, he emphasized that the "why" is more important than the "what" in WWYD questions. In other words, the reason is more important than the decision. We believe that there should be a reason behind every discard. Please feel free to share WWYD questions here, and let us all make sure we explain the reason behind our decisions. This way, we can all benefit from a shared deeper understanding of the choices we have to make while playing riichi mahjong.

When you post WWYD questions, please provide the game conditions, including round, player's seat, point conditions, rule set, etc.

Hoping for a pinfu shape, we don't need two pairs, so let's discard from one of those. It's a distant hope at this point, but this hand could turn into a 234 sanshoku if the right tiles came. Therefore, I'd discard 2s to leave that possibility open while still progressing the hand.

 

Afterwards, if I drew 3p it's time to forget about sanshoku and reach. On the other hand, if I draw 3s or 4s, I'll get rid of the 67m group and aim for sanshoku.

Dave, you have really good detailed reasons!! Thank you for posting comment!!

start with 2p. 4p, 67m, 2s8s can all be connected to. I won't take less than 2 han and a good wait in the end. 789/678 sanshoku is also still possible, but the final wait shape is more important so I will discard 2p first and see where I can find better shapes...

For Pure efficiency:

Go with 2S/8S, as discard any of them still allow this hand to have 48-52 possible tiles to improve (since singular tile is always worse on speed than a waiting shape)

For Maxium worth hand:

Go with 2P, 4P or 9P, as if someone may desire a 3 color straight of 678 and all-simples.
