Best non-yakuman revisited

Post by or2az » Tue Feb 04, 2014 7:18 am

While browsing the forum, I ran across a topic from 2012 which caught my interest, "The Best Non-Yakuman Hands you've gotten".
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=53017
I decided not to add to it because I found some of the earlier posts to be somewhat unfriendly.
So lets try again.
Using the criteria, WOW, THAT WAS COOL, I CAN'T BELIEVE I DID THAT, these are my best three.
1) NAGASHI MANGAN (all terminal and honor discards) This is really hard to do! (posted in "thought I had a good one")
2) SAN RENKOU (3 consecutive pungs,same suit) I thought a triple pung (san shoku doko) was hard enough.
3)A SANBAIMAN (riichi, CSD, pinfu, double run, and 7 dora) 20 fu 11 han, ura dora helped.
Again, these all occurred on video games. Feel free to add yours.

My favourite hand is only Haneman but I love it's shape/form.

4-dot 4-dot 5-dot 5-dot 6-dot 6-dot 4-bam 5-bam 6-bam 4-crak 5-crak 8-dot 8-dot Winning on a: 6-crak

This gives you:
Tanyao (All Simples)
Pinfu (Peace)
San Shoku Doujin (3 Coloured Runs)
Ipeiikou (Double Run?)
Riichi (Ready) - assuming you declare it.

I actually managed this hand (the shape, I don't remember the exact tiles. But I think it was actually a pair of 8 pins) in my fourth game of the Oui main event to pull me out of fourth and out of the negative points too.

Ryanpeiko: If you're interested in a short discussion, check out "Question about ryan peikou" from back in 2010.

Anyway, after 1360 games and 15,000 hands, I finally got one!!
Riichi, Menzen Tsumo, pinfu, Ryanpeikou, and a red 5 dora. (Haneman, I believe)

Awesome 30,000 win, on a double WEST, dora 1. And rounded to +41 to boot.

My sanbaiman ones are in the sanbaiman thread...

This baiman, though, involves a fairly uncommon yaku...

Revisiting a revisited thread after a 5 year void, this one sure racked up the points. Probably my nicest.

I've been playing the original 2004 PSP version of Mahjong Fight Club. (Got it for US$4 including shipping!)

Just had a nice Sanbaiman win - very lucky with the Dora. (Default rules use four red fives.)
