T-Spin Triple Setups

From TetrisWiki

(Redirected from T-Spin Triple)

Games that use SRS have a peculiar wall kick that allows the T tetromino to be twisted past other blocks in the playfield, resulting in a triple.

General Tips

  • The T tetromino can only fit under the overhang either from sliding or from utilizing the T-Spin Single twist. To use the T-Spin Single twist, make sure the wall opposite the overhang is at least two rows high.

  • If a T-Spin Triple is built on top of an empty garbage column, the column will be open after the setup is performed if it lies under the notch or the filled column beside the notch. This can also apply to other columns if their heights are lower than that of the empty cell under the overhang.

  • The overhang left over by a T-Spin Triple can be cleared with a twist, namely a T-Spin Single. Slides and line clears also work. The T-Spin Single method is best used if you have a T tetromino ready or coming soon. Delaying the removal of the overhang can cause overstacking which may leave you with an awkward stack, and is time taken away from removing garbage underneath the setup.

Looping Setups

I,O,J,T,T,Z Loop

Start off with a J and T (L and T if reversed) as shown to set up the field for this loop.

........OO
........OO
.........I
.........I
.........I
.....T.J.I
....TTTJJJ

The bottom row clears as you stack columns 1-6, and the loop begins. If you're able to keep columns 1-6 high enough at all times you will get a T-spin triple, T-spin single, and double line clear within each loop. While only I and O pieces can be used against the right wall, they must also be used (as well as J, Z, and occasionally T) in other places to avoid overstacking on the right side.
