I'm a 27 year old EGF 1 dan, playing Go since late 2006. I was active in the community at Sensei's and the former SE-1.0 site shidogo.com, now switched my attention to BCG.SE

I've created a platform for bad Go jokes.

I tried Mahjong Express, it's a nice program with a limited but reasonable set of features. Few players (only around 5-10 players online usually).

I didn't know that the term "made hand" was unclear, I'm not a native speaker and know (and misused, on second thought) the term from poker. This question is asking for the chances to get a hand that allows a player to finish on their first turn.

Just to clarify: The 5000:1 ratio described in your interesting link is not the chance to get Nine Gates but the ration between Nine Gates and 13 orphans. Both of them are, as far as I can tell, a lot rarer than 0.02%. I heard that even regular players often get them only once in their life.
