After you have determined the Han value and the Points, use the following charts to
determine the payout.
Han values are written across the top, and Points are written along the side. After you index
to the proper box, the top value shows the total amount of points paid (used for Ron, when
one player is burdened with payment of the total amount), and the bottom value shows what amount
is paid for Tsumo (when the payment is divided between the other 3 players).
When the Non-Dealer goes Tsumo (out off the wall), notice that there are two values written in the lower box (in the form X / Y). The first number is the amount that the Dealer pays, and the second number is the amount that the other two players pay.
For example, 2 Han 40 Points indexes to a box that contains 2600 at the top. This is for Ron, and is the amount paid by the player who discarded the finishing tile. The bottom of the box reads 1300/700, which is for Tsumo, and means that the Dealer pays 1300, while the other two players each pay 700. Notice that the player receives slightly more (2700, or 100 extra) due to rounding (the more detailed calculation for score that accounts for this is not covered in this site).
When the player who goes out is the Dealer, use the second chart (the dealer earns 150% of the normal payout). The top number is what a
1. A player goes out RON for 3 Han 50 Points. Find the 3 Han column, and go down to the 50 Pts row. It lists 6400 at the top. Collect 6400 from the player whose tile was used to complete the hand.
2. A player goes out TSUMO for 2 Han 40 Points. Find the 2 Han column, and go down to the 40 Pts row. It lists 2600, and below that, 1300/700. For TSUMO, use the bottom numbers. The Dealer pays 1300, and the other two players pay 700 each.
3. The Dealer goes out TSUMO for 1 Han 40 Points. Find the 1 Han column, and go down to the 40 Pts row. The top number is 2000, and the bottom number is 700. Use the bottom number for since this is TSUMO. Collect 700 from each player for a total of 2100.
Finally something easy! Scoring 6 Han or more
For 6 Han or more, charts are not needed, because Points are no longer relevant. Simply:
6-7 Han = 12,000 for Non-Dealer, 18,000 for Dealer
8-10 Han = 16,000 for Non-Dealer, 24,000 for Dealer
11-12 Han = 24,000 for Non-Dealer, 36,000 for Dealer
13 Han or more (natural Limit) = 32,000 for Non-Dealer, 48,000 for Dealer
Remember, when Non-Dealer players go out TSUMO, the dealer pays half, and the other players each pay 1/4. When the Dealer goes out TSUMO, each player pays 1/3.
For example, if a Non-Dealer goes out TSUMO on 6 Han, he receives 12,000. Dealer pays 6,000, each of the other 2 players pay 3,000.
Exception: The pesky All Pairs Hand
The All Pairs hand is officially 2 Han 25 Points.
For scoring purposes, think of it as 1 Han 50 Points when you use the chart. For example, All Pairs only is 1600 for Non-Dealer. However, if you have 4 Han apart from All Pairs, just count the All Pairs as 2 more Han. For example, Reach (1) + Closed Tsumo (1) + 2 Dora (2) + All Pairs (2) = 6 Han = 12,000.
It wasn't easy, but that's it for scoring!!
