Lesson 6: Increasing the fifth column
As mentioned in the previous chapter, let's talk about rising that fifth column.
|The T can only be moved to both sides if the 5th column is the highest.|
|The Z and O can be moved to both sides if the 5th or 6th column is the highest.
Be careful about using IRS if it's the 6th
|The S can be moved to both sides if the 4th or 5th column is the highest.
Be sure to use IRS if it's the 4th
|The J and L can be moved to both sides if the 4th, 5th or 6th column is the highest.
IRS may be needed to give yourself opportunity for movement.
|The I block can be move if the highest column is anywhere between the 4th and 7th.|
In other words, the fifth columns should always be the highest. This allows for the most movement.
In 5 of the 7 blocks the fifth column is ideal.
Here are some techniques to get the fifth column as the highest one.
If you use irs on the J and L blocks, they will land perfectly, given the stack is flat.
|Z down the stairs:
If you move the S and Z blocks one column to the left or right, they will be placed ideally for 20G.
|5th column I:
The I block has to rotated and moved one column to the left.
Sometimes you need to do this in reverse order!
|The T just has to be rotated twice.
The O already lands perfectly and can be moved one space to the left if desired.
