Cyrille Rak Cracks the Case as the 2015 Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong!

SherlockTrio

LONDON 17 April 2015 - It was an unsolved mystery that evaded a verdict for ten challenging weeks, while twenty-eight detectives were hot on the trail of clues. In the end, it was elementary, my dear readers. Cyrille Rak solved the most puzzles in the shortest amount of time, awarding him 1st place as the 2015 Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong, followed by Konsta Lensu and Sylvain Malbec.

Congratulations also to Vitaly Novikov, author of the riddles and coordinator of the contest, for his most successful season of mysteries to date, and for a contest excellently done.

A special thanks also to Mahjongtime.com for their generous support of Mahjong News and for the donation of prizes for the top three contestants.

Too bad this tournament is on the same day as the members tournament of the Dutch Mahjong Assocaticon.

This tournament is mainly organized by RER : Red Eyes Riichi. RER is the 2nd (after TNT) parisian club, 100% dedicated to Riichi rules.
TNT & RER are 2 different clubs, the 1st one is leaded by Quentin Thomas, the 2nd one is leaded by Nicolas Poilleux.

Tri-Nitro-Tiles, Magic Mahjong Social Pung & Fleur d'Orchidée will of course help in the organisation of this tournament.

This MERS 1 tournament can host a maximum of 48 players (there is already 21 registred players).
So, if you want a seat, be quick !

Pity, on the same day the Dutch Mahjong Assocation have their annual tournament and we go to Utrecht.
Hope to get there in 2012.

Hello.
There is a mistake, the "Red Eyes Tournament" is not organized by TNT, but by "Red Eyes Riichi", a new riichi club in Paris.
