Despite Akagi’s variety of style and equal wins, his wins are of lesser value so Ichikawa is winning in points with his stable tactics. I like how they omit a suit to make it a battle betwen the two of them and increase the risks. That the side players are playing what they perceive to be safe tiles and Akagi manipulates this and offbalances them, mwahahaha. Great stuff!
Live Tile: no tiles of that kind in the pond.
Straight Through: having one of every tile in a single unit.
