Payments to winner – Chinese Modern scheme

This payoff scheme is normally used in the modern Chinese Mah Jong (and often called "Chung plan" Chung means "discarder of the winning tile").  If the winning tile is self-drawn, all pay double; if the winning tile is a discard, discarder pays double, others normally. East does not pay or receive double.
