AMSTELVEEN, Netherlands 08 November 2015 - Tom Mustonen from Finland wins the trophy in the 2015 Dutch Riichi Open, followed by runner-up Patric Steinke from Germany, Martijn Gulmans from the Netherlands in third, and fourth Jens Smikalla from Germany.

64 players competed in the two days’ event, organized by the Red Fives Mahjong Club of Ans Hoogland and Cor Hoogland.

The players came from six countries. Besides the Netherlands, they came from Germany, Great-Britain, Slovakia, Finland and Japan.

The MERS 2 competition was held in Amstelveen for the first time, which is very handy for foreign players since it is quite close to Amsterdam and the national airport of Schiphol. The new location proved to be a succes, given the number of excellent players who came from all over Europe; only the Danish and the French players were conspicious by their absence. The Dutch Mahjong Association hopes that next year they will be there as well: “This is a very strong tournament, where all the top players are welcome.’’


Cor Hoogland offers additional commentary:

Amstelveen is a small village near Schiphol Airport so it was easy for the players who came by plane.

Tournament overview:

5 players from the U.K.

5 players from Slovakia

3 players from Finland

1 player from Japan (allthough he is lives in Ireland)

6 players from Germany

45 players from the lowlands.

We played at the Japanese Go-centre, a place where Japanese people learn Calligraphy and play Go as well as Shogi, Bridge and Chess. For the Japanese children there are homework-classes.

Anyway….

The first day started with a bad phone-call. Two people couldn’t come because one of them fell down the stairs and was taken to hospital with severe injuries. So I had to play, wasn’ intent to because I was eager to make photos.

On both day there were quite a few big hands even a 13 Orphans.

We think that the players had a wonderful time.
