Paku's Japanese upbringing has resulted in an excessive modesty which inhibits Paku from acknowledging his superior skill at the game of mah jong. However, modesty aside, Paku could not help but dominate his first game of post-Thanksgiving mah jong. So far Paku has engaged in relatively conservative play in order to achieve as many mah jong' s as possible. However, because of the relative ease of his victory employing this strategy he has decides to pursue a more aggressive strategy for the next round focusing more on points per hand than winning each game.
Unfortunately, Paku has an established weakness for dragon tiles so he must take care not to hoard to many dragons at the expense of winning games, a trap he has fallen victim to before.
