Ladies Invade Homes in Search of Mah Jongg Sets!   

Swain & IsraelAnn M. Israel and Gregg Swain were after private Western mah jongg collections when they invaded many homes during their search, but they aren’t burglars! They are photo-archeologists, and private homes were their dig! Hidden deep in the dark of basements, closets, and attics all over this world are some of the most amazing mah jongg treasures people might never see; tiles carefully hand carved and painted by artisans long forgotten. Like skillful and patient archeologists, Ann M. Israel and Gregg Swain set out to unearth these lost works of art before they are forgotten forever.

What is luck???

I cant agree to what Tina says. If i play a tournament im always focused and concentrated even if i lose, because i want to minimize my loses. You never had a game where you didnt make any mistakes but lost (you counldnt win a hand and had to pay tsumo)? Although you are focused you can lose!!! Of course its easier to play when you are in first place then in last, but it has nothing to do with your level of concentration! The question is how would you define luck? Its really hard to answer that question (at least i cant). The problem is the differentiation of luck and randomness. You get a good starting hand; no luck. You get 10 good starting in a row; luck. But between 1 and 10, where ends the randomness and where starts the luck? And which hand was won by skill and which by luck? Its a mind game, thats totally true but it has luck involved and this luck is not part of concentration, its just luck!!! In the end i have to say nagare/tsuki dont make sense and its okay if you call it pure superstition but do you believe in god? He cant be seen and for many it doesnt make sense to believe, but why are there so many religious people out there?????????? Not everything can be explained with mathematics!
