We will be streaming this event.
The key differences between PML and WRC are that we allow double/triple ron (riichi sticks and honba go to first player), do not use kiriage mangan, do allow abortive draws (4 winds, 4 riichi, kyuushuu kyuuhai), open kan dora are flipped after discard, points start at 25000, uma is +25/+10/-10/-25, and seating is determined with a computer. All hands should be scored into the system. Please arrive by 12:45pm to log into the system. Consult a judge for any questions.
More extensive list:
25,000 points starting
55 minutes + last hand
Atamehane-nashi Multiple players can win off the same discard. Only the player nearest to the discarder wins bonus points and riichi bets, if any. Double or triple ron okay.
Kuikae-nashi The penalty for discarding an illegal tile is a dead hand.
Renhou-ari Mangan points are awarded for renhou.
Chonbo 10,000 point penalty off your total score after the game has ended (after uma).
At the end of the game, riichi bets or penalty points on the table are not returned. The points are removed from the game entirely.
Bad ron/tsumo without revealing hand: Dead hand
Bad ron/tsumo with revealing hand: Chonbo
Bad pon/chi: no penalty. Revealed tiles count towards 5 total revealed for chonbo penalty.
