Which pros are going to the WRC?

People who have been waiting anxiously for the list of professionals who will be attending the World Riichi Championship need wait no longer! List can be seen at http://www.wrc2014.com/inscription.php after clicking the dot on Japan.

I have copy and pasted the list below, but I think copying and pasting a list instead of just linking to the list is lame so I’ll be adding notes beside names. The notes will take a while because the list is quite large!

  1. Baba Hirokazu (writer) will not be attending according to a report on the RM forums. Nakamura Tsuyoshi (JPML) will fill in for him.

    Among the NJ players, there is a Dane out for a Dane in swap, and a Chinese out for a Finn in.
