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!

Possible solution

One possible solution: Mrs. Hudson's hand meets the minimum requirement of 8 points with: a) 3 chows combining for 2 1-point fans (e.g. 2 Mixed Double Chows; Mixed Double Chow and Pure Double Chow; Pure Double Chow and Short Straight etc.); b) 1 Melded Kong of a Terminal (i.e. 1 or 9), giving 2 points; c) hand contains only 2 Suits (i.e. One Voided Suit) and No Honours, giving 2 points; d) and she self-drew on a unique wait (i.e. Single Wait, Closed Wait, or Edge Wait), giving 2 points. Additionally, Mrs. Hudson managed to get all 8 bonus tiles, so her hand is worth 16 points in total.
