Under a suggestion from the JPML (Japan Professional Mahjong League) and in collaboration with MMSP (Magic Mahjong Social Pung), TNT shall organize on next June, 13th and 14th, a wonderful and unique event: a study session held by Mr. Moriyama, from the JPML.

  1. There will be an event on Saturday, 13th, June,
  2. The event shall start at 16:00, in the MMSP clubroom, and end at 20:00,
  3. The event shall be a study session, presented by Mr. Moriyama from the JPML, with discussions about case problems people are having, reading discards and how to improve play. For example, a table playing with hands open or using a PC and projector to play videos and discuss or use ron2’s function where you can replay games,
  4. The first hour or so shall be in order to gather tactical questions about actual cases. It’s advised to come with problems and questions prepared,
  5. Games, a computer and a projector shall be available, in order to replicate a given situation, so accurate problems and questions about exact situations are preferred,
