NIJMEGEN - The team of Cor Hoogland and Gemma Collinge has won the second Washizu in Holland Tournament. During the third and fourth hanchan, Cor was the substitute player for Gemma, who had to catch her plane back home. Normally, a couple like that is skipped in the results, but referee Martin Rep took this 'arbitrary decision' to emphasize the unique character of this friendly tournament in a deviant type of mahjong game.
In Washizu-mahjong, inspired on the Japanese manga Washizu, sets are used that consist mainly of transparent tiles. Twenty players, respresenting four nations, competed in this tournament. Apart from Alexander Doppelhofer, all players had also participated in the Cherry Blossom Tournament, the previous day in the same venue in Nijmegen, Holland. Runner-up was Ma Prem Sohana Troostheide, third prize for John Kuijpers, both from the Netherlands.
