We are running a mini tournament (4 hanchan) which will be a qualifier to decide who represents Australia at IORMC this year. Team Australia won the team tournament last year and Nosty made the final table in the individual tournament. IORMC will be held on 7th and 14th of November this year.
This tournament is open to all Australian players regardless of whether you intend to play in IORMC . However, we will prioritise players who are playing to qualify for the team if we do not have an even number of players for the tournament.
Congratulations to team AUNSW Wanderers (chewy, Mai, esp) who have won this year’s ARMA Team league, prevailing in an 8 hanchan finals series. Tile Dreaming came in 2nd place, followed by Chombo Nomi and Notice me, Tenpai.
Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus all clubs have had to suspend their live mahjong activities. To ensure that everyone is getting their mahjong fix, we’re hosting an Online team league based on Japan’s M-League.
The following teams consisting of 3-5 players will play a total of 36 hanchan each across 9 weeks on Tenhou and MahjongSoul. The top 4 players will participate in a finals series with the top 2 teams winning prizes (Amazon gift cards / Tenhou premium) for each team member.
The Australian Riichi Mahjong Open 2019 was held recently in Melbourne, Australia.
Congratulations to our winner Kevin Dinh from South Australia. He will be invited to represent Australia at the World Riichi Championship 2020 in Vienna, Australia. We should also congratulate the other players on our final table: Mathis (NSW/France), Tomoki (NSW), Nam (VIC).
Congratulations to our team this year: Cheez – Aaron C. -Nosty- – Kevin L. SBT101 – Kevin D. ronald – Pero M.
In addition, Kevin L / -Nosty- fought through the knockout rounds in the IORMC Individual competition to qualify for the final table of this year’s event. Unfortunately he was unable to make it a double win for Australia but a 4th place finish overall is great nonetheless. Individual results: https://kml.or.kr/xe/72347#0
