A clip from a live stream of a recent world championship Mah-Jong match in Japan where the player nearest the camera is dealt an incredibly rare pat hand called a ‘Ten-Ho’ (天和 - ‘Gift of Heaven’).

it’s an instant lay-down win on his first draw. A fully melded hand of 14 tiles complete with a valid multiplier (Triplet of East Winds). About as common as being dealt four Aces and the Joker at Draw Poker.

The players are using one of those wonderful automatic Mah-Jong tile-dealing tables popular in Asia.
