English reference

In English, pinfu is commonly referred as "all sequences". However, the yaku is not as simple as that. Other than having an open hand, it is possible for a hand to be composed of all sequences and still not be classed as a pinfu.


To understand pinfu, players must understand the nature of fu. Fu are a set of points associated with hand composition. Pinfu lacks any of these.
