- An STSD setup can be used over an empty column. This can be very useful when approaching rows that are too high to set up a TSD or if the player wants to sneak in a second T-Spin Double. When used in combination with tetrises, this technique can be very deadly.
- When placing a STSD over a tetris column, a player can still tetris if the notch has not been set up.
Notch is not OK.
Overhang is OK.
Refer to T-Spin Triple Overhang Situation Setups
Empty field setups
In the case of ill-fated garbage, a J can skip one TSD.
The second T-Spin Double can be replaced with a T-Spin Triple.
