Group photo at WMSG selection trial on SBR in Moscow, 2017.

MOSCOW, Russia - Russian riichi player Alexey Leontiev (8th dan at 'Tenho') was the best at WMSG-2018 selection trial on SBR in Moscow, the only Sichuan-style mahjong WMSG selection trial tournament in Europe. The runner-up is Aleksander Bogatikov, 3rd place goes to Denis Lugannikov (all three winners are from Moscow). This 5-session tournament gathered as many as twenty-eight players from Russia, China and Uzbekistan. Prize for the winner was provided by MEIZU Technology.

Very interesting psychological observation lies in 'easiness' of playing in tournament by both MCR and riichi players. SBR rules are the link between these two groups. In fact, the tournament was attended by: eight MCR players, eight riichi players, seven players who play both rules, three Chinese (neither MCR, nor riichi), and two novice players.

The event was held at the Teahouse DAO, the place where several official and club mahjong tournaments in three different rule-sets took place in Moscow for the last 12 months.
