Hot off the presses: Swedish Riichi Open 2014 results
The Swedish Open Riichi Mahjong Championship 2014 has concluded, with 36 participants from at least 4 countries. We have the results, and we also have some information regarding the two seats that Sweden has been allocated for the WRC2014 in Puteaux, France later in July.
Paraphrasing Yazphier, Sweden has chosen to allocate the two seats separately: one is given to the best Swede who performed at the tournament below, and the other is given to the best Swede in the EMA rankings after this event. There is some uncertainty as to who is actually going as many people have signaled not knowing if they can go, and others who have notified the event organizers (dunno if it made it to the Swedish org) that they will be unable to attend. Both seats are awarded independently: if Anders Ye cannot go, it will be the next best Swede at the SORMC2014. Likewise, the EMA ranking’s seat may shuffle downward accordingly. The seat will transfer to the other qualification method only after all options in one list are exhausted.
