Osamuko Invitational

Hello there, next weekend will a few of us at osamuko discord arrange a team tournament because, well, yeah, way too few tournaments and leagues going on online right now. The format is 4 rounds of 4 games where the first three are an incomplete round robin and the final game is then paired by current position just like the IORMC.

The tournament is an invitational as we wanted to try and test how this works before eventually doing more tournaments later. There will be teams selected by classic captain picking before the tournament so yet we have no clue on how fair or unfair the teams will get. zawa zawa

Yazphiers view on Swedish Open 2014

Unsure if I should write anything or not, but as nothing seemed to be under discussion, I decided to write my view on this tournament in similar fashion as my previous posts. This was the second tournament that my local club arranged and even if I was not an officially announced organizer, I did appoint myself some of the chores and I will not be able to keep an objective view.

Warsaw battles

Not even a week has passed and I find myself standing at Skavsta airport once again, this time accompanied  with my roommate, Hiki, heading for some battles in Warsaw. A few hours early, as usual, Hiki complained about nothing to do, not my fault he didn’t bring anything. Personally I finally started grinding Final Fantasy II on my just repaired PSP.

Yazphiers trip to Paris

Leaving home for mahjong tournament in Paris, some snowflakes, 40 minutes early. Bus arrive and leaves on time. Lucky as the bus to Arlanda was 2(!) hours late due to the weather, I mean fuck, I wouldn’t even call this snow. Apparently a lot of trains were also canceled.

On the bus, playing some ketsui doing some minor progress after getting used to the bumpy driver. But ends up seasick after a good 50 minutes. Try to get some sleep.

Apparently southern Sweden has been struck by the storm, Sven.
