Game ID: 673273
Game Type: HK
Winner: ryantay
Points: 384
Combinations: Total: 13 Orphans - 64 Flower of own wind - 1

Comment: This player showed patience and, as we all know, often patience can pay off. Although getting tiles of the same kind, he waited and was rewarded with a wonderful self-mahjong. Way to go!

congrats to the our 3 champs, a special mention to lapkee for his amazing three great dragons hand, i had the luxury of witnessing lapkee's and pilipina's hands on the table. wish i could have been there for jenny's and ryan's as well.

i would have to say that ryan's hand is the best out of the lot, i have seen many 13 orphan hands, but 13 orphans waiting on all 13 tiles is something beyond rare. In some JM rules waiting on all 13 tiles is considered to be worth 2 maximum hands. well done ryan
