Ladies Invade Homes in Search of Mah Jongg Sets!   

Swain & IsraelAnn M. Israel and Gregg Swain were after private Western mah jongg collections when they invaded many homes during their search, but they aren’t burglars! They are photo-archeologists, and private homes were their dig! Hidden deep in the dark of basements, closets, and attics all over this world are some of the most amazing mah jongg treasures people might never see; tiles carefully hand carved and painted by artisans long forgotten. Like skillful and patient archeologists, Ann M. Israel and Gregg Swain set out to unearth these lost works of art before they are forgotten forever.

After the Dutch, now it’s Henrik Leth

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.

Teams

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).
