Tight Contest for the Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong

Sherlocks

ONLINE March 2015 - This year's Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong contest brought the largest field of competitors yet, and the crowd at the top is still tight; the title could belong to anyone. With four competitors tied for 1st, and five more just one point behind, the last couple of questions will be the make-or-break opportunity for many. The contest is likely to come down to the timing; how fast each player is able to get their answers in. So set your alarm clocks, and get sluthing!

players forgetting their rulers seemed very common ...

In the World Series of Mahjong in Macao (in which I acted as head judge), we supply mahjong rulers to the players. In the first year, many players forgot and subsequently lost their rulers. In the second year, the judges took special care to remind the players to take their rulers when they leave the table, but still one or two were lost. I'm sorry that I can't help Martin here, but a suggestion to all those who are bringing your prized rulers to any tournament: label (preferably engrave) the ruler with your name! Or even tie the ruler to your pants with a long piece of string. Unless it's a cheap $2 piece you don't mind losing, don't count on your own memory for ruler retrieval!
