Broke into the R1900's just today! Just barely.

Steadily progressing upward as I go. I worried I wouldn't make it into the 1900's but at 1905, I'm JUST in there.   ;D

I thought (特上) tokujo would be pretty scary, but good news is I find it actually more predictable than was the jokyu (上級) room, and the win/loss payoff ratios are so much better, so it's actually LESS stressful than was jokyu. If I lose, I generally saw it coming, and I don't suffer too much of a point hit for having lost.

The other nice thing is almost everyone has a higher R rating than me, so when I do win, I get a nice bump in my R. Definitely worth shooting for access to tokujo, because once you get there, riichi mahjong gets even more fun.

I started out terrible, and went into S3 as East in last place, but pulled it up to first with 50,200 points and a 26,000 point lead over 2nd after five continuances. Going into S4 I should have been happy that I saved a terrible game with a giant lead to basically guarantee me a win. I HAD this match in the bag... NO reason whatsoever to riichi in S4. LOTS of reasons NOT to riichi in S4. WHY did I riichi there? Dumb dumb dumb.
