Hi, my name is Nicolas and I've played *Japanese (Riichi) mahjongalmost exclusively for over a decade, ranking highly on multiple tournaments in Japan, online mahjong servers and championships. I've been taught by countless of expert-grade players. Along the way, I've found myself teaching others on how to play better in tournaments as well as online.
As a professional mahjong player, I've had the opportunity to attended countless of professional study sessions, both on the learning and the teaching side. I am fortunate enough to be friends with many talented professionals who are willing to teach me their craft more deeply than most people would ever get access to, and in turn I try to *pass that knowledge onto the rest of the world. I'm also proud owner of one of the largest Mahjong strategy books collections in Japan.
I hope I can help you, as well, to become a better mahjong player today!
