The $3,000 Hand!

After a long break from playing, Adelaida, Merrie, Muriel and I played Mah Jongg this afternoon.
I won $3,000 on this hand of four triples and a pair. Not the prettiest hand, but a winner nonetheless.
Unfortunately we played for play money, so there were no extra funds diverted to the lens war chest.

You are so good, I only have a 40% success rate at that game. :(

I've never played Mah Jongg, but am an avid backgammon player!
Gorgeous capture Walter ~ love the dof! BV

Never mind Walter, maybe next time you play for real?? Super capture of your winning hand ;o) I've never played mah jong nor backgammon, too complicated for my little mind - I can just about get by at Snap though LOL
