How many European players participated and won in International Tournaments in China?
Evaluate the game by all means. If you call yourselves 'International',please do not invite people from other countries and make fun of them.It is in bad taste.
Fans (HK) or fans (MCR)

In the official MCR rulebook (aka "the green book"), the scoring elements are called "fan".
I'm more worried about "NOT a simple" magically turning into "ALL simples".
Anyway, it seems this part was intended to refer to any fan.

No need to pay tourney fees then, eh?

Scott: According to you, Martin the player should feel no shame with his actions. Thus far, I agree completely.
The problem I have is that this is being used to "make news". It tarnishes whatever people like me perceive to be attempts to improve the individual and overall level of gameplay, especially since MN is the most prominent news outlet for EMA events. The verdict is that there is no improvement, and you don't need to participate in 3 tournaments to figure it out.
I'll keep my money from future events, unless the majority of players come from the #1 English riichi community website. My advice for the rest of you: claim haneman+ every hand. Eventually, people will count...

I don't think so, maybe with starting point equal to 0 it's true, it's more severe than uma, but when all players start with 25k or 30k it's not severe (even uma, imo). Last time when we played tournament in Poland, there were some bridge observers and all of them told us that the system with starting points 0 and 'player with more tenbou points wins' isn't good to determine the best one. They've just reccomended tabple points or something similar.

No no no. The "almost" indicates the thought crossed his mind, but he didn't do it.
Though, anyone with an itchy-trigger-finger would have done so and not realize the consequence.

I looked up the
"Laws of Malaysia - Act 289 - Common Gaming Houses Act 1953"
which defines gaming as:
=== QUOTE ===
"gaming" with its grammatical variations and ognate expressions means the playing of any game of chance or of mixed chance and skill for money or money's worth and includes the playing of any game specified in Column I of the First and Second Schedules and the playing or operation of any gaming machine;
=== END ===
Mahjong isn't specifically mentioned in "Column I of the First and Second Schedules" but "Jin Rummy" is which is pretty close. However, I imagine that the exact game played isn't the point, it's that it's any game of chance played in a public place that is bet upon for money (or similar).
There's an interesting thread about it
Search that page for "03-02-2006 01:01 PM" to find a really useful post.
Hope that's of help.
