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.
