The Wolf And The Lamb Shall Graze Together...

On Friday 2nd April we were able to have two mahjong tables in action at Kodama mahjong parlour with seven people playing. Noda, David and Jaime were joined by Kenyon, who made his 2010 debut. Tonight was also Ladies Night, with Hatsue-san and Aimi-san in attendance. The seventh player was Nobu who beetled in just as play had started, but not to late to take the fourth seat at the Ladies' table where Noda was holding court and resisting all attempts to elicit from him a gentlemanly promise not to clean up at the ladies' expense...

David thought it might not be such a good thing to let a wolf play among the lambs, but as Jaime sagely noted, it was better to have the the wolf lying down with the lambs of another sheepfold than to have him graze together with us in our own...

Table 1: Noda, Hatsue, Aimi, Nobu
Table 2: David, Jaime, Kenyon

After a couple of games we drew lots once again for tables: The situation was that Noda had built up a commanding lead at the expense of the ladies.

Table 1: David, Kenyon, Nobu
Table 2: Noda, Jaime, Hatsue, Aimi

By the end of the evening Noda was approaching +200 points while Hatsue suffered two Yakitori games and was in minus triple figures. Aimi had also suffered severe losses but was able to recover some ground in the second game.

Meanwhile, Nobu, who had been holding his own, suffered at the hands of Kenyon, who finished the evening in the +90s. David also took advantage of Nobu's generosity and in one case Nobu obliged David with a 5-Character when he had deliberately opted for a tricky Kanchan wait (4_6) on a Oya Riichi with only two 5-Character tiles left in play....

Noda +75, +27, +6 = +108
Kenyon +24, +22, +20, +28 = +94
David -15, -3, +49, -12 = +19
Jaime -9, -19, +3, +37 = +12
===
Aimi -90, +62, -9 = -37
Nobu +12, -69,* -16 = -73
Hatsue +3, -92,** -34** = -123

* Chombo
** Yakitori


So, at the commencement of the second quarter of 2010 the Grand Accumulated Results Table looks like this:
