The one that got away. (There's always one)

This hand is the closest I have been yet so far.
1-dot 1-dot 2-dot 3-dot 4-dot 5-dot 5-dot 6-dot 8-dot 9-dot 9-dot 9-dot :back

With a copy of both terminals having discarded by the third go-around, I managed to draw the case 9 a few turns later. Late in the hand, the second ippin was thrown away and I had to abandon course. PON! Discarded the random tile I still had left. Next go around I draw a 2 and throw the 8, and then Shimocha threw a 4. RON! Just Chinitsu.

Good enough to secure second place (this was in Oorasu), which is a shame because I was hit as oya in East-3 with a Riizumo Dora 8 baiman, and this would have made a great comeback. Oh well.

It's pretty special just to get that close to such a rare hand.

Last night I was looking up clips from the Japanese TV show The WAREME De PON.

(They have their own parlour in Judgment, the new video-game from the Yakuza studio.)

The first video I saw has one of the celebrity contestants landing Nine Gates. :o
