PUTEAUX, France - Mathieu Chambe, finalist at the "French Riichi Open 2017" last June, wins the "Tri Nitro Tournament 2017" (RERS1), scoring 93,000 points. Runner-up is Sven-Hendrik Gutsche with 90,300 points, and Chaolei Chen claims third place, scoring 81,900 points.

Even though it had been two years since 'French Reach Mahjong Team - Tri Nitro Tiles' organized a tournament, Olivier Cao and his fellow club members proved to be excellent hosts for this year's "5ème Détonation!". The crew, who instantaneously became world famous overnight by hosting the first edition of the "World Riichi Championship" in 2014 in their hometown Puteaux, welcomed twenty-three players from France (Île-de-France, Bordeaux, Cannes, Mulhouse, Lyon and Rennes) plus one Londoner to the suburbs of Paris to engage in four hanchan of intense play.
