Rep

PUTEAUX, July 16th - Martin Rep, founder of Mahjong News, resigns as the editor of the one and only Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper. He made his decision public in a speech which he delivered during the opening ceremony of the World Riichi Championship in Puteaux. He will be succeeded by Scott D. Miller, who has been an associate editor for some months.

Mr. Rep (1946) is a professional journalist. He was involved in organizing the first Open European Mahjong Championship (Nijmegen, 2005) and the first European Riichi Mahjong Championship (Hanover, 2008). The World Riichi Championship 2014 was initialized by him.

Mr. Scott D. Miller is the author of the mahjong instruction book ‘Mahjong From A to Zhú’ (Psionic Press 2013) and an instructor of the game at Amarillo College. He played in the European Riichi Mahjong Championship 2013 in Austria and was a referee in the World Riichi Mahjong Championship.

Table Points

Not having played in any tournament, I see that players in riichi tournaments typically accumulate points between games (hanchans), while players in MCR tournaments are awarded table points. So in MCR, you are competing against the players at your table, but in riichi (and WSoM last year) you are competing against the entire room. Not that mahjong is a sport, but I don't recall any sport where you compete against the entire field: In sports, if you win your match, even by the slimmest of margins, you advance and play other winners.

There's a sport where the immediate opponent doesn't matter much.
