8 Common Types Of Mahjong Players
In my years of experience with the game , I will say that I have met my fair bit of players from all walks of life. Interestingly, it is easy to tell one's personality through the game just by observing how he/she acts. Whilst I play the game for entertainment purposes, I still aim to win as it is a representation of my skills. However, for some, they may be too focused on the money at stake which spoils the fun for everyone. Coincidentally, these are also the people who react poorly after they lose a lot of money. A piece of Mahjong advice : AVOID THEM OR ELSE ...
Anyways, here are the different types of players I've met :
1. God of Gambler （赌圣）
First up, we have the best player of the table with the most experience amongst other players. He is reputable for emptying your wallet and he can also feel tiles without looking. Undoubtedly, he is the most skilled individual and can easily read your hand. Occasionally, these players will give chance to new players and are fun to play with. But, if they start to get serious , do watch out.
2. The Pantang One (Superstitious)
Next up, we have the Pantang (direct translate from Malay) one who believes strongly in luck. He will most likely bring all his gambling amulets and do a ritual before the game starts. Furthermore, I give it a 88% chance he is wearing his favorite red undergarments. These individuals never fail to entertain as you can always tease them when they are "unlucky".
