The tournament has just started.

BUSSUM, the Netherlands - Just yesterday, Dutch riichi mahjong player Martha Pasterkamp with her friend went to the town hall in her residence Amsterdam to give notice of their intended marriage.

One day later, today at Bussum, she won the first prize in the Furiten Riichi Tournament. No wonder, the bride-to-be beamed all over when the first prize was handed over to her by tournament organizer Martin Rep.

Second place in the competition was for Foppe Bakker, third prize went to Annemieke Hesselink; all from the Netherlands. In the competition, 48 players from five countries participated. The tournament consisted of five hanchan.

‘Summer Folly’

The previous Furiten Tournament took place in 2014. Initially, Furiten-president Mr. Rep did not feel much like organizing a new tournament, but finally decided to start the competition again, this time as a ‘Summer Folly’. It was Summer indeed, with rising temperatures in the local Mind Sports Center.
