Column #240

Chinese Official Tournament Rules. The 3rd China Majiang Championship and Forum is now history. I'm sorry to say that I placed 90th out of 92 players. The Chinese are very tough competitors!

My toughest opponent, Jiao Linghua of the China Jiexiu team.
She beat me to a pulp! She placed 35th.

I played against several of the top players, including the #1 winner, Gao Jun.

I did win a hand once in a while. Pure Straight, One Voided Suit, Mixed Double Chow, Concealed.

Four champions. L to R: Sune Korreman (best European player at OEMC '05),
Mai Hatsune (world champion '02), Gao Jun (1st Place),
Masato Chiba (European champion).
