I wonder if the championship will be streamed to the Internet... There will be a way to watch it?
Life is as beautiful as you want it to be, but it´s only one. That´s why you must not get tired of it. Don´t care if you don´t say something that seems "important" because your mere existence is important for someone.

The USPML does already have a Twitch channel at least: https://www.twitch.tv/uspml/videos/all

Recently they've been streaming games at weekends (see link for VODs), but only online PC games I think.

Obviously broadcasting a tournament with physical matches requires a lot more hardware.

Thank you for the info, Barticle. Sounds like a good reason to try Twitch.

Actually the final tables of the 2014 WRC where broadcasted on niconico! Although it was more basic than what you can usually see on the JPML channel, it was live, so it's possible if not likely that they'll do it again :)

That's so cool. :) Thumbs up.

You can see some old mahjong games on YouTube. Mondo Tv, 日本プロ麻雀連盟, and Sangroup3 channels are a good choice. Mondo videos are quite cool.

Most live mahjong streams would be listed under this generic entry: https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Mahjong

Went to the airport in Las Vegas to pick up a friend so I decided to pop into the Palms Casino Resort to check out where the tournament is going to be held in October.
I couldn't get in the room since the doors were locked but the Grand Ballroom seems to be the place.
Besides the traditional slot machines and card tables, the casino has a huge multiplex movie theater and a large food court.
I noticed the word "konami" on some of the slot machines, which I'm sure is familiar to some of you.
Nice place, as casinos go.

Like me, she's from Brooklyn, N.Y. , I wonder if I could get her interested in playing mahjong?
Nah, probably not.

If those prices include air fares and accommodation then I'm in! ;)

Tell her that mahjong is a battlefield.

Found this online. Since it is almost here, and I am unfamiliar with this, can someone perhaps do some additional research and explain exactly how to go about watching this when the time comes.. I am reluctant to press buttons when I know not what I am pressing and can't read what comes up anyway.. Any information will be appreciated.
