Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


What is luck???

I cant agree to what Tina says. If i play a tournament im always focused and concentrated even if i lose, because i want to minimize my loses. You never had a game where you didnt make any mistakes but lost (you counldnt win a hand and had to pay tsumo)? Although you are focused you can lose!!! Of course its easier to play when you are in first place then in last, but it has nothing to do with your level of concentration! The question is how would you define luck? Its really hard to answer that question (at least i cant). The problem is the differentiation of luck and randomness. You get a good starting hand; no luck. You get 10 good starting in a row; luck. But between 1 and 10, where ends the randomness and where starts the luck? And which hand was won by skill and which by luck? Its a mind game, thats totally true but it has luck involved and this luck is not part of concentration, its just luck!!! In the end i have to say nagare/tsuki dont make sense and its okay if you call it pure superstition but do you believe in god? He cant be seen and for many it doesnt make sense to believe, but why are there so many religious people out there?????????? Not everything can be explained with mathematics!
