If you missed the earlier news, Kaz Hayashi had to miss this event due to a cut suffered on his forehead earlier this week. No word on when he’ll return but it does not appear to be serious.
Also, new President Masayuki Uchida, promoted from his former title of Representative President to replace Keiji Muto, issued a greeting/welcome statement today. Loose translation:
謹 Hiroshi, the time under, being placed in everyone one, benefit 々 you know clearly in thing large celebration of the glory. Usually, it grants extraordinary high distribution and gratitude says. Well, this time it received after the Osamu Satoshi Buto, it was decided that is inaugurated as Representative President with 2011 June 7th. Therefore, still is the immature person in this large part, it is the preparedness where, but it becomes player staff assemblage and the limit of power includes and endeavors wholeheartedly. In order also in the future support to grant in everyone, restraining, we ask.

Representative President Uchida elegance 之
No word on who might now be below Uchida in the pecking order, but my first guess might be their players’ association head/rep, which based on articles I’ve read over the last week or two appears to be Kaz Hayashi.
UPDATE: Added 3-way match result. Guess they were still updating results and I was a bit too fast for them, haha.
