Riyan-Kan and Continuity of Tiles (The Basics pt06)
*Translation of the original article start below*
Now let’s look at a Riyan-Kan (double Kan-Chan) situation.
"Same Amount of Uke-Ire Tiles as Riyan-Men"
As a basic Mahjong strategy, a Riyan-Men has 2 types and 8 tiles as your Uke-Ire, but the Riyal-Kan that we will introduce this time will also have the same 2 types and 8 tiles as your Use-Ire. (Since you have 2 Kan-Chans, so that is why it is called Riyan-Kan)
A Riyan-Men uses 2 tiles and “2 types and 8 tiles“, and a Riyan-Kan uses 3 tiles and “2 types and 8 tiles”, so a Riyan-Men is more efficient, but it is important to understand that the Riyal-Kan wait also has a good Uke-Ire. Let’s try to remember that.
"Be Conscious of the Continuity of Tiles"
As seen in the image below, be conscious of a Riyan-Kan material made out of “4 skipping” tiles.
So as you can see, it is important to be conscious of the continuity of tiles and not just the Uke-Ire tiles of an individual tile in Mahjong. If we look at a tile’s continuity in a different example…
This also comes up in a game fairly often, so let’s try to remember this.
