Also, a rewrite of the explanation of Steph's logic with game theory math. Steph answered via pure game theory logic. Her decision is based on both players playing rationally, after reviewing...

It may be easier for chaos_animagic to understand if you consider the game outcome as being decided by a scoring system. This is, logically and mathematically, identical to the standard rule...

I hadn't gone back to the previous episode to see Toyone's starting hand, and I forgot about the possibility of an itsuu. I also didn't think of the...

Simple answer: Getting +-0 requires that you score between 4600 and 5500 points, and not be in first place. If you check my post a few pages back (post 935) you'll see Saki's point total for the...

It seems pretty likely that Teru would watch Saki's match (even if she made tsundere excuses about it; I don't remember for certain if anything...

I still think Saki was pretty much guaranteed a 1 sou or 4 sou from the dead wall if she took the second kan. She'd then discard the 7 man, and win with tsumo when she got the red 5 man two turns...

Addendum: Just realized an additional point on Toyone's hand: She discarded a 7sou on the round -just before- the kan. I'm guessing she broke up her 78 set and switched to the 45 set at that...

This assertion that I made is wrong. We get to see Saki's full hand before she folds it down, and she could not have won on the second kan draw. The...

Actually, it should be the opposite of that -- Kasumi's control does extend to the dead wall, else players would be able to get 'her' suit from there when they shouldn't be allowed to have any at...

Kasumi's power turns it into 2 suits for 3 players, and 1 suit for 1 player. There's some random variation based on the dice roll value and calls, but generally...

It didn't stand out so much in the regionals, because I don't think any of the teams has coaches (Nagano apparently isn't that great at attracting pros to their schools). In...

While I spoke of that in one of my earlier posts, I'd want add a caveat by noting that just because Saki played the manipulator there doesn't make her a puppetmaster. That play wouldn't have...

Totally minor aside: We already knew from at least as far back as Achiga than the animators put a lot of effort into even making the discard piles match up with the character (eg: Kuro placing all...

Just as she said that, they shift the camera to show Saki over Kyouko's shoulder, and Saki has the 'shrouded face' look going. It seemed a good draw for Kyouko, but...

Actually, Saki broke a lot of things this round (aside from the monocle). 1) She set things up so that Kyouko could win with her chi/pon, vs Kasumi. 2) She herself could still win via...

It's not that Saki could have used it, it's that she knew the exact tile that Kyouko needed for a pon, which allowed Kyouko to win against Kasumi. Basically, she set Kyouko up for the win in order...

My thought is not that they're skeptical of mahjong superpowers, it's that they're skeptical of human mahjong superpowers.
