Tournament Rounds:

  • Tournaments rounds are held on September 5 and 6, 2009. Three rounds on September 5  and three rounds on September 6.

Time Frame for Playing:

  • Each round consists of 16 hands or one hour and a half of play, whichever comes first.
  • Each participant will play six 16-hand rounds with each lasting no more than one hour and a half.
  • The Playing time for all six rounds will be up to but not greater than 9 hours.
  • Please note that the next round does not start until all the tables in the first round are completed .You will receive an online notification shortly before the next round starts. Please respond promptly when you receive the notification. If you do not respond in timely manner, you are automatically disqualified for the round and an auto player that can't win will play for you.
  • Each player has a maximum of 10 sec. per move. Each player is responsible for a good Internet connection since the clocks WILL NOT stop in case of disconnection or offline. In the unlikely event of internal technical problems of the server, MahjongTime reserves the right to restart the game at the specific position before such an incident might occur or ask the players to replay the unfinished hand.
  • The player with the highest score wins the tournament.

Registration & Check-in:
The registration closes 24 hours before the starting time. The registered players are required to check-in (login to the game) 15 minutes before the tournament starts.

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 pt;
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.

Prizes for the 3 highest ranked, plus a prize for the highest ranked European Player. First Highest ranked player receives a collectable gold plated tile. View image:
