Tight Contest for the Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong

Sherlocks

ONLINE March 2015 - This year's Sherlock Holmes of Mahjong contest brought the largest field of competitors yet, and the crowd at the top is still tight; the title could belong to anyone. With four competitors tied for 1st, and five more just one point behind, the last couple of questions will be the make-or-break opportunity for many. The contest is likely to come down to the timing; how fast each player is able to get their answers in. So set your alarm clocks, and get sluthing!

The mahjongwolf is back

Linz123-2011

LINZ - For 1526 days (starting August 18th, 2007, at Dunaújváros) , the president of the Baden mahjong club, Martin 'Lupo' Hoffmann, had not won one single tournament. Today, at Baden/Vienna, this unfortunate series came to an end. Thanks to the misfortune of his major opponents in the final session, Martin Mauthner ('I cannot play mahjong against three women') and Otto Myslivec (who scored just 1 point), 'Lupo' finally could strike again. The tournament was not MERS rated by the European Mahjong Association (EMA).

Championship

AustrianChampion2011Ever since 2006, in Austria a national championship has been organized. Until now, never a lady could win, after Otto Myslivec (2006, 2008,  2010), Norbert Tschinkel (2007) and Martin Scheichenbauer (2009). For the current year, this would be different. Doris Sallmutter was number 1 in the ranking, followed by Alexander Doppelhofer and Elisabeth Frischenschlager. The Linz tournament would be decisive. But, to Doris's disappointment, it was not she but the number three of the World Mahjong Championship 2010 who grabbed the title. Doris ended in third position, after runner-up  Alexander Doppelhofer.

quote from article: Thanks to the misfortune of his major opponents in the final session, Martin Mauthner ('I cannot play mahjong against three women')

Even if that was an actual quote, it was tasteless to put it in the article. Unless sniping is the new editorial guideline on MN. Didn't know how to take that reference to me in the Copenhagen article, but I sure do now. Thanks. o_O
