HANOVER - Subscription has opened for the Phoenix Tournament in Germany. This tournament is the unoffial German riichi championship.
Co-organizer Norbert Luckhart: "It is a two days' tournament, and there are six hanchan. But since just 28 players can participate, we decided to apply for just 1 MERS point instead of 2." The competition takes place in the Cafe Kaiser in Hanover, October 22nd~23rd.
The first Phoenix Tournament was held in 2009. Gemma Collinge from the UK was the winner. Last year, the tournament did not take place, as it would have coincided with the European Riichi Championship, which also took place in Hanover.
