PARIS - Henrik Leth has broken the Dutch hegomony over the French championship. After Marianne Croeze (2007 and 2008) and Anton Kösters (2009), both from the Netherlands, today it was a Danish player who has won the French Open, one of the most prestigious and important mahjong tournaments in Europe. Runner-up was Brigitte Sandarom; since she was the best French player, she was declared French champion 2010. Thanks to Gerda Van Oorschot, who won the third prize, there was still a good success for the Dutch in Paris. 108 players participated.
Last year's winner Anton Kösters - he ended on the third position, one week ago, during the Spanish Open, last week in Murcia - landed just in the top-twenty of the tournament. Marianne Croeze, double winner of the tournament, was less succesful: she ended on position number 48.
The team prize was for Danish White Dragons (Henrik Leth, Jesper Willemoes Hansen, Frank Rostved and Jeppe Stig Nielsen); runner-up were 'Les Dalton' from France (Reunion), with Ludivic Brun, Frédérique Grondin, Stephane Boyer and Stéphanie Boyer-Parcollet. Number three was the French 'Red Empire' (Nathalie Mahé, Lionel Legaie, Nicolas Pochic, Anne Choux).
