Pinfu (平和/平胡) is similar to an All Chows hand but has several restrictive properties. Pinfu has to be a concealed hand, it cannot contain any value pair (i.e. dragons, seat or prevalent wind), and must go out on a two-sided (ryanmen) wait. Some variations restrict pinfu to be completed only on a self-drawn tile (tsumo pinfu). This hand scores differently with 30 points if out on a discard and 20 points if self-drawn, with no 2-pt self-drawn bonus.
A 6-dot or 9-dot will complete this hand.
