Dr. Watson returned tired to Baker Street 221 B after he had played soccer. Refusing to play mahjong, he went straight to bed.
The next morning, he told Sherlock Holmes and Mrs. Hudson about a very strange dream he had had, a mixture of soccer and mahjong.
He told that some psychic came to him in a dream and began to talk:
“… and the 4th bird would fly to you
… and this bird would call a tile from the wall
… and your one-suited hand would be waiting for the number of tiles equal to the number of players in two soccer teams at field
… you would win!”
“Oh, it’s rather elementary that hand might be called ‘a younger brother of’…” – said Holmes.
Question 1: What was Dr. Watson’s hand?
Question 2: (for experts): What was Sherlock Holmes talking about?
