altA new Sherlock Holmes Mystery. When should you stop to try and make mahjong and when should you continue?

Two Sherlock Holmes miniatures by Vitaly Novikov published on the same date. They were not too difficult (that's why they are called 'miniatures' for in the first place).

Finally! Today, Sherlock Holmes, the great detective, returns. Vitaly Novikov and Mahjong News proudly present… the first mahjong problem!

A new problem of Mrs. Hudson's. The last time, she had to win before the three gentlemen she played against (see ‘Mrs. Hudson’s Problem’), since her winning hand had the regular structure 3-3-3-3-2. Now she makes a vow not to collect even a pair in a hand.

Beginning this week, Sherlock Holmes will be back in Mahjong News to solve his mahjong mysteries…

Every mahjong lover in the world is invited to help the great detective in resolving his problems. Not in matters of life and death, but in cases as Dr. Watson and the Nine Gates or The Secret of the Thirteen Orphans. From Monday on, author Vitaly Novikov will throw the gauntlet. Do you dare picking it up?
