Sessions

As the number of people who attend the session is never likely to be in factors of 4, some of these players will have to sit out during Game 1. To ensure fairness to all, a system has been devised to determine who get to play first.

The priority will be determined by 2 factors – Registration and Punctuality

1. If you are attending the session, you have to register first (here)
2. We do not wait for players who are late. Doing so will result in a shorter time for other players to play
3. We follow an Attendance Points system to determine who has a higher priority to play. Generally, those who are more committed will get to play first. For details, please click here

*It is important to register because should there be any last minute cancellation or change of venue, only the registered will be contacted via mobile phone.

Players match-up and rotation [OUTDATED – To be updated soon]

(We are currently trying out a new system called the Ladder System. Please refer to https://sgriichimahjong.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/possible-faq-about-the-current-ladder-system/ for details)

Assuming the situation that 9 players have registered and are punctual, the first 8 players who registered first will draw lots to determine which table they will be playing at – Table 1 or Table 2.

Amongst the 8 players, the one who gets last place AND who scored the lowest will have to sit out. The top 4 will be arranged to Table 1 while the next 3 will be Table 2. The one who sat out will then join Table 2.

For example:

Game 1

Table 1
Player A: 50,000
Player B: 40,000
Player C: 6,000
Player D: 4,000

Table 2
Player E: 35,000
Player F: 30,000
Player G: 20,000
Player H: 15,000

Player I, Player J – sit out

Game 2

Table 1
Player A
Player E
Player B
Player F

Table 2
Player G
Player C
Player J
Player I

Player D, Player H – sit out

The stronger players (1st and 2nd place) will play with each other while the 3rd and sit outs will be playing with each other.

As shown, despite player C scoring lower than player H, his ranking is higher as he has gotten 3rd in his table during Game 1. Absolute score will comes in only as a tie-breaker while individual table ranking still holds a higher determining factor.

**If both player D and player H happen to get the same score and same place, we will have to look at their statistics. The one with a lower number of table points will sit out.

  1. Once again, I apologise for my queries, but I would like to ask.
    Do we have to play, or can we choose to sit out?
    (And if so, do we still have to pay? Though I have no qualms about paying even if it’s just for spectating)

    • If you have registered to play, we will be expecting you to play unless you are giving your seat to other sit-out players. Paying will be by the number of games you played. Spectation is free. If you only wish to spectate, please keep us informed.

      If you have any more question, I would suggest you to compile them and email us. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
