Naoki Setokuma Wins the Phoenix Cup!!

Active ImageCongratulations to Naoki Setokuma!

In 2009 JPML’s strongest competitor was Yudai Maehara. He won the most prestigious title in Mahjong, the Phoenix Cup and went on to take down the 10-Tier tournament for the 3rd year in a row. Even so, Naoki Setokuma was the crowd’s favorite in the 2010 Phoenix Cup Finals and he answered the call.

The Phoenix Cup is a 2-day final event to finish off JPML’s Pro League for the year. The top 3 contenders in the A1 league join last year’s Phoenix Cup winner and the new league champion is decided.

Congratulations to Naoki Setokuma. You may remember him as the first-ever winner of the Cups. You can read his exclusive interviews here: Part 1 and Part 2.
