Two of our players Anthony and Kevin attended the European Riichi Mahjong Championship (ERMC) which was held in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. This tournament was an invite only tournament of 140 players, and as part of the field we had the last two winners of the World Riichi Championship (WRC) from Japan – Hiroshi Yamai and Masaharu Tokotake. Our representatives managed to get 8th and 27th place which was a huge achievement! Results can be found here: https://www.ermc2019.com/live-results/
