Holmes, Watson, Lestrade and Mrs. Hudson are playing mahjong game. Today's game is special because our foursome decided to determine the best player of the season. Whoever wins the game will be named as best player. In case of shared winners, a new game will be played.
Before the last deal, the score looked strange and funny: all three gentlemen have +18 points while Mrs. Hudson has -54 points. At this point time, all the gentleman are willing to win by any means.

At some points of time gentlemens' hands looked similar:
- Holmes -- , , , with one tile in his hand,
- Watson -- , , , with one tile in his hand,
- Lestrade -- , , , with one tile in his hand,
- Mrs. Hudson has declared two chows so far.
In other words, all gentlemen have as the main fan of their hand a 16-points fan consisting of three pure chows shifted by step one, two or three. Everybody can be waiting for any tile since 18 points are already within the respective melded sets.
Since the lady is 72 points away, then the strategy of each gentlemen was, beside simply winning the game and the title of best player, to not not give mahjong to another gentlemen. It was Lestrade who chose to deal a "safe" discard directly into Mrs. Hudson's "Hu".

- her winning hand contains a "Tile Hog" of .
