Fastest Gun in the EAST....(and debriefing from CT tournament)

Barbara and I spent the day at a tournament in Danbury, CT.  It was a benefit for AAUW and run by Libby Kasimer.  It was a great tournament and a lovely day, held at a lakeside venue with an outdoor area where one could chat between games.

To top off this enjoyable day Barbara made the following hand: (click on the photo and it will enlarge)

OK.  It's a pairs hand....FF 4B4B  5B5B  6B6B  7B7B  8B8B  9B9B  GG
Not SO unusual..... BUT....she made this hand as EAST before the first tile was thrown.

This can only happen when one is EAST.   After the last right on which Barbara made a blind pass....she optioned one tile with WEST and received the tile that completed her Mah Jongg.  So...instead of throwing the first tile....she exposed her Mah Jongg!

Have you EVER seen this happen?   It was a first for me...and Barbara, too.

An exciting day all around.  BTW....Barbara came in first at the tournament.
