Kanchan is awarded 2 fu upon winning. A closed hand winning by ron automatically becomes mangan, if it scores 4 han.
Kanchan is similar to penchan, by which it waits on 4 tiles maximum for a single numbered tile type for completion. Likewise, this pattern can hide against suji. However, kanchan is more versatile as it is able to use a greater range of tile types.
