A hand of a lifetime...

Post by Goldeneye » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:43 pm

Before you say this is fake, the randomizer of that game (which some of you have) somehow gave this lucky fellow the hand of a lifetime...

That said, the odds are astronomical against this happening at any time whatsoever...

According to my calculations, 1 in .922 * 10^15, which means just slightly better than one in a quadrillion for the lovers of short scale (one in a thousand billion long scale)

I think it's Mahjong Fight Club, but Barticle can certainly confirm it - It is not Tenhou - Tenhou doesn't even recognize Paarenchan and only scores Dai Suu Shi as single Yakuman. In Tenhou, this hand would only score Quadruple Yakuman instead of Sextuple Yakuman by most rules (Septuple Yakuman if scored correctly with Paarenchan - it missed Suu Ankou Tanki and scored it as just plain Suu Ankou).

No, I didn't mean the site Tenhou. I meant the hand Tenhou being among the yakuman listed... as in Tenhou, Su An Kou Tanki, Dai Sushi, Tsu Iso, Parenchan. :shock: :shock:

Yes, it's a Tenhou on MFC. :) You can see in the final second that it's the Sony PSP version of the game.

It's correctly scored. Tenhou and Suu Ankou Tanki don't mix.
