We are inviting you to join the tournament in memory of Adrie Van Geffen – a3geffen.


On June 14th, 2021, Adrie Van Geffen – a3geffen has passed away unexpectedly, and the world has lost a truly great man and a mahjong guru. He played many mahjong rules including MCR, Riichi, Hong Kong, Taiwanese very well.

Our relationship with Adrie started at the dawn of the Mahjong Time project. Adrie Van Geffen helped us with the tricky mahjong rules and scorings. He always had the time to listen and gave advice and assistance when needed.

He also ran a column in our blog, with tips and pointers for new and more skilled players. Adrie was always extremely helpful to new players in their endeavor to learn the game. Prayers and fond memories are what we must remember Adrie.

Adrie particularly enjoyed playing in our tournaments, and in his memory, we will host a tournament each year on Adrie’s birthday. This year we will play MCR rules. Perhaps, next year Riichi to continue Adrie Van Geffen’s legacy. It was truly a pleasure to have gotten to know Adrie, he will be missed dearly:

Any player that won't play at the tournament for more than 26 minutes in one round may be disqualified and may not be able to join the next round of the competition. Also, your entry fee will not be refunded.

Scoring:


At the end of each round, each player will receive a "table point" according to the score. The table point assignment is as follows:
  • Highest score: 4 pts
  • 2nd highest score: 2 pts
  • 3rd highest score: 1 pts
  • Lowest score: 0 pt
If two (or more) players tie for a position, they share equally the added points. For example 0.5 points each (half of 1 + 0) for two players sharing the last position. Tournament rankings are determined through table points. Players with more table points in a game earn higher placement in the tournament. If a tie in table points occurs between players, the player with the highest overall score will be ranked higher. In the unlikely event that two players are tied in both table points AND overall score, the player that won more hands in the game will be ranked higher.
