UPPSALA, Sweden - This weekend thirty-two players from seven countries gathered in Uppsala for this year’s Swedish Open Championship in Mahjong.  After seven rounds Isabel Bahiano Steenholm could call herself winner. The strong Dane thus showed that the top achievement in Porto last month was not just luck but very much good performance. The runner up Moa Henriet from Sweden won the prize as best Swede, and Pauline van der Linden from the Netherlands ended up as third.

The tournament was held in Bridgens hus in Uppsala, a venue that had it all, such as a lot of tables and a separate room for the lunches since it normally hosts up to 200 bridge players. A few of them actually came as spectators. The weather was the best Sweden can present, and the rather large Italian team combined the long trip to the North with some days extra for tourism. It seemed that all players had a good time, and everyone now looks forward to the next Swedish tournament whenever and where it will be. Sweden has MCR clubs in Uppsala, Malmö and Gothenburg.
