VIENNA - Is it discrimination? Is it allowed? Is it better for mahjong in Europe to make the next European Riichi Championship ‘for Europeans only’? Is it okay to make an exception then to the rule and admit Japanese players, since they developed riichi mahjong and we can learn a lot from them?
Kasu, the Vienna riichi mahjong club, wants to organize the European Riichi Mahjong Championship 2012. In the letter which they have sent to EMA, the Kasu players have suggested some modifications to the regulation, in order ‘to improve the game experience’. (Read all about the proposal here.)
Mahjong News wonders how you, the reader of our Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper, thinks about it. Also EMA does, given the suggestion of its president, Robert Rijnders, to discuss the topic.
So, here is your chance. Please give your opinion in the new Mahjong News poll: should the next EC Riichi be open or not? We love to hear from you…
