A former student of ours writes:
" Recently I was mistakenly called dead when I called an exposed a pung. Does my opponent who called my hand dead then become dead? I thought I remembered this being the rule from your class but my opponent disagreed.
P.S. I enjoyed your class and have become addicted. "
You are RIGHT. If a player calls another player
dead in error, that player becomes dead and ceases play while the other player continues
to play. That's why players are so careful when they call another dead.
I believe that if there wasn't a penalty for that, players
would be much more liberal in calling others dead, even possibly in an
effort to determine which hand they are playing.
Comments or differing opinions?
BTW....we love the Mah Jongg addiction!
