decson & Gyudi

Please look at my Tichu log#239038280

#239038280

Half game, random table, a total of 8 rounds:

Round 2: decscon gives 10 from 678891010 to Gyudi to make 10JJ, Gyudi gives J from JJJ to make 678910J.

(??Round 5??) A blunder from Gyudi? He gives J from JJ, suppose to give 8 out to opponents instead of 7, decson gives him 10 supposedly to make it 78910J in Gyudi's hand :roll:

Round 6: descon gives 6 from JQK to make a bomb of 6s in Gyudi's hand. :roll:

Round 7: Kind of suspicion exchange of 8 to desccon and Q to Gyudi. :roll: Getting desperate?
I'm not seeing enough here to conclude collusion. First, there's no play history between your opponents apart from this game. Rather, one of your opponents is apparently friends with your partner and the passing doesn't suggest your partner was sabotaging you to benefit the friend's side.

In general, a card passed to partner will result in a combo better than what was already in hand 49-50% of the time, so you'll see two consecutive pairs or even bombs produced unwittingly, particularly when high cards are exchanged.

Second, they missed three opportunities to make bombs (move #9 quads, #243 flush, and #458 quads). in round 6, move #380, decson passes lowest singles 456, likely inadvertently giving partner quad 6s. The plan was clearly to call Tichu given the player had D33899JQKA left. Final hand #539, they swap Dragon and Ace for no benefit.

Mapleland has already been identified as colluding with another user and is listed on the first post. The second account here is relatively new and may be the same person.

Hello Tichu players...just wondering if you detect suspicious exchanges between these two players: Silverminer/ Canada and Blackhawks/ Canada? Or just give them the benefit of doubts...

Silverminer & Blackhawks

Please look at my Tichu log #319539174.

Especially on Round 1 and 3. :roll:
