MOSCOW - The biggest Russian reach mahjong club Tesuji is organizing an open riichi tournament in Moscow on May, 13th. Over forty Russians have already subscribed to the competition, but Tesuji would also like to invite players from all over Europe to participate.
The rules are very close to JPML-B, with minor differences. Open tanyao is allowed. No red fives are used, there are no double yakuman hands. The primary criterion for the classification will be the average place, the secondary is total score. The full text of the regulations can be found on the Tesuji website.
The tournament will consist of four 90 minutes game hanchan (sessions). The winner will receive a valuable prize. Registration is already open on the club site, the fee is 600 roubles (€15). The venue will be the Business and Cultural Center ‘Japan House’. The competition is not MERS-rated by EMA.
