Real Table Problem

We will go through decision-making process in order to win with Full Flush.

Initial Distribution

You can download file with problem we will discuss here.

So, in the middle of the game you have to discard from (no exposures yet!):

D 11235566677789.

Tiles left in play for Dots: 1 222 333 444 5 6 7 88 999.

Options to Discard

a)      D1 leaving D 1235566677789;

b)      D2 leaving D 1135566677789;

c)      D3 leaving D 1125566677789;

d)      D5 leaving D 1123566677789;

e)      D6 leaving D 1123556677789;

f)        D7 leaving D 1123556667789;

g)      D8 leaving D 1123556667779;

h)      D9 leaving D 1123556667778.

How Many Waits?

Looking at 13+1=14 or better at a shorter version (tailored for this problem) we see:

i)        D 1235566677789 produces 4 waits: D5, D6, D7 and D9 (6 actual tiles in play);

e)      D 1123556677789 produces 2 waits: D1 and D4 (4 actual tiles in play);

h)      D 1123556667778 produces 2 waits: D1 and D4 (4 actual tiles in play).

All the rest variants do NOT provide Wait.

So, we make decision to discard D1.

What Next?

In 3 moves you win J. In 4 moves if you choose to discard D6 or D9 some other player wins L (on D7, so on YOUR D7 discard game will finish faster J).
