Yakuza Cup despite everything

On August 26 and 27, the Yakuza Cup, the first two-day mahjong tournament since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, will be held in Kyiv.
It will not be a ranking tournament, but a full-fledged championship with a distance of 8 hanchans, a cup, prizes and souvenirs, as in previous years.
Also, there will be acadores, open tanyao, all yakumanas including doubles at full price and abortive transfers.
No EMA, just real riichi, clear as a crystal tear.

The participation fee is 1000 UAH which can be paid on the spot or immediately.

Players are encouraged to have a Mahjong tracker app to keep track of points and be there on time on the first day to register. Registration will begin at ten o’clock on Saturday, August 26.
