SAINT PAUL, Réunion (FRA) - After four sessions André Balagourou, French Champion MCR in 2014 and 2015, emerges as victor at the "Dragon Rouge Tournament" (MERS) scoring 14 table points and 440 mini-points. Runner-up with 13 table points and 634 mini-points is Marcel Tsong Chin Chuen, and with an equal amount of table points but less mini-points (332) Annick Pause is awarded third place. 

Host 'Dragon Rouge' is one of five mahjong clubs on Réunion, all dedicated to MCR. In addition to the club in Saint Paul the most prosperous island in the Indian Ocean is home to 'Mah-jong Spirit' in capital Saint Denis, 'Les 4 Fantastiques' in Etang salé, 'Panthères Club' in Saint Pierre, and 'Mahjong Impérial' in Sainte Clotilde. The two latter clubs are, just like 'Dragon Rouge', known to annually host an EMA certified tournament. Representing their local club in total forty-eight participants took part in the one-day tournament.

Jean-Claude Ugo, member of the organizing committee, reflects on a well-organized day: "Everything was smoothly even if we were all quite hot! Here it's summer and the temperature was as high as 28 degrees!" Since there were no non-residents attending the tournament, he draws attention to the upcoming "Imperial Open 2018" (October 21-22) and cordially invites foreign players to participate in this event: "[We] will help you organize this trip if necessary!"
