Q. What is duplicate mahjong?
A. The short answer: players don't need to understand the details of the duplicate process, they just sit down at the walls provided to them and do their best as they normally would. The long answer is relevant only to tournament organizers. It's based on the way the walls are prebuilt for each hand. It is mahjong played with the elements of luck taken out, so that players can be ranked based solely on skill. This is a requirement in order for mahjong to be considered a mind sport, and for mahjong to qualify as a potential event in the 2020 Olympics.

Q. International competitions often use the official Chinese rules. How do I play Chinese mahjong?
A. To get you started, a great resource for the official Chinese game of mahjong can be downloaded: click here.

2. The Red Dragon & The West Wind: The Winning Guide to Official Chinese & American Mah-Jongg by Tom Sloper.

Q. Where can I get a set of mahjong tiles?
A. Try Yellow Mountain Imports.

Q. Is there a cheaper alternative to tiles for playing mahjong?

Dutch player Marian Peerdeman was the winner of this event.

AMARILLO, Texas - Who says you can't get something for nothing? On a week when there are no tournaments taking place, and no announcements to proclaim, it would seem there is no story to write about for Mahjong News - and that's something to write about. Mahjong News explores how having nothing is something; the history behind this strange scoring anomoly in riichi mahjong called the open pinfu hand.
