‘Full House’: the Solution

altDr. Watson had asked Sherlock Holmes how a hand with as many fans as possible can be constructed. Sherlock answered that he could solve that problem in less time it would take him than smoking half a pipe. Could you - even if you never smoke? Here’s the answer…

Question: Please, construct a hand containing as maximum of different fans.
Answer. Omitting reasoning here is a hand:

Concealed -- altaltaltalt, altaltaltalt, altaltaltaltaltaltalt, after replacing Kong alt comes (last tile from the wall and last tile of a kind):
1. 2= Prevalent Wind
2. 2 = Seat Wind
3. 2*1 = Pung of Terminals or Honors (two occurrences)
4. 16 = Three Concealed Pungs
5. 2 = Double Pung
6. 8 = Two Concealed Kongs
7. 4 = Outside Hand
8. 2 = Tile Hog
9. 1 = One Voided Suit
10. 1 = Closed Wait
11. 4 = Fully Concealed Hand
12. 8 = Out with Replacement Tile
13. 8 = Last Tile Draw
14. 4 = Last Tile
15. 8*1 = Flowers (8 ocurrences, not shown)
Totalling 72 pts on 15 different fans (altogether 23 fans).
