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!


Martin Scheichenbauer wins home match

 

gurk2010-top3GURK - ‘Herr Notar’ Martin Scheichenbauer moved from Feldkirchen to Gurk last year - and so the Open Austrian Championship  made the same move. No surprise that, today, Martin won the first Austrian championship which took place in his new station.

Johannes Scott-Weijers from the UK (living in Hungary) was the runner up, Patrizia Buscarini from Italy won the third prize. There were 44 players who combined in the competition.

Johannes Scott-Weijers received the Sisi Cup for the best accumulated score in the 2010 Hungarian and Austrian championships.

Magdolna Bogarnè Nagy, who won the Hungarian Open one week before, did not play in the Austrian competition.

 

Third victory 

sisi2010After the Open Italian 2007 and the Open Hungarian 2009, it is the third victory of Mr. Scheichenbauer in a MERS (internationally rated) tournament. He now holds this record together with his fellow countryman Otto Myslivec and Danish player Martin Wedel Jacobsen.
