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!


After the Dutch, now it’s Henrik Leth

After Marianne Croeze (2007 and 2008) and Anton Kösters (2009), both from the Netherlands, today it was a Danish player who has won the French Open, one of the most prestigious  and important mahjong tournaments in Europe. Runner-up was  Brigitte Sandarom; since she was the best French player, she was declared French champion 2010. Thanks to Gerda Van Oorschot, who won the third prize, there was still a good success for the Dutch in Paris. 108 players participated.

Teams

Last year's winner Anton Kösters - he ended on the third position, one week ago, during the Spanish Open, last week in Murcia - landed just in the top-twenty of the tournament. Marianne Croeze, double winner of the tournament, was less succesful: she ended on position number 48.

The team prize was for Danish White Dragons (Henrik Leth, Jesper Willemoes Hansen, Frank Rostved and Jeppe Stig Nielsen); runner-up were 'Les Dalton' from France (Reunion), with Ludivic Brun, Frédérique Grondin, Stephane Boyer and Stéphanie Boyer-Parcollet. Number three was the French 'Red Empire' (Nathalie Mahé, Lionel Legaie, Nicolas Pochic, Anne Choux).
