Prizes are still to be determined. Entry fees and all expenses to that event are the responsibility of the player. Players eligible for this award have 15 days to confirm their participation: this award is not transferrable to a third party. If a player is unable to use this award, it will be awarded to the next best ranking player at the tournament.

Other prizes will not exceed a total value of CAD 100, as per laws set by the Government of Quebec and the Régie des alcools, des courses, et des jeux du Québec.

The rankings will be posted online to the riichiout tournament page when they will be available. We will also try to provide updates to the page after each hanchan.
