"The referees at OEMC 2011 OF COURSE know why they put in a substitute player in the last session; no investigation is needed."
Maybe not for the OEMC referees, but Mahjong News sure needs to do some investigation.
I don't know why Rui Manuel Machado and Ombretta Tassinari didn't show up, and it seems the article's author didn't know either.

It's unbelievable that a newspaper shows only one point of view without the opinions of the concerned parties, while lacking to present essential fact like why did the players have not shown up.

Excuse me Adrie if I seem aggressive, I understand your griefs, but it looks like you didn't know what you're talking about.

In the very last hand in Mestre, Rudy Kopmanis fed me a 16 point hand, thereby giving me the first place with only 12 mini-points. Rudy, who led the table before the last hand, ended up in fourth place with -9. Rudy was of course already waiting. I was catapulted 40 places in the final ranking, while Rudy lost a possible top-20 placing. Indeed a cut-throat game.
A throat-cutting game , Mahjong News

Thank you everybody for your congratulations!
As I said on the first morning, I had come to win, and I did. I was very strong, because I wanted to win for my country, for my association and for my club. I really felt the love from everybody, and that helped me a lot!
It was lovely to play with you all!
Thank you!

Thanks to the Organizing Committee for a great and well planned tournament.
Last of all: Thanks to all of the players, for respecting the referees and making it a joyful experience to judge.
