Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!

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!


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.
