I made great use of my 2-day Ron2 trial membership and hit a nice Suu ankou:

I\'ve only hit a suu an kou so far... I was ridiculously cheerful for the rest of the day :D

There was a little too much luck involved with my counted Yakuman (with 11 dora!) so I´m very pleased to report - three weeks later - my first proper limit hand. :D :D

I wonder how many opportunities for Suu An Kou I´ve passed up by going out asap with Toi Toi...?! There were probably several cases where I could at least have got San An Kou. Oh well, it´s all a learning experience...

Cool, I finally made 13 Orphans for the first time myself a few days ago, following several dozen failed attempts - including the incident with the opponent´s wind kong! :angry:

(I know the general advice is to attempt it only if you start with ten or more tiles but I´m still a Yakuman-obsessed noob so I´ve been trying with 8 or 9. Got tenpai a few times.)

Oh, and mine had the same pair of Souths too. :)

I was able to pull off a double yakuman when I was playing with friends of mine yesterday (Shou suushii + Tsuu iisou with a pon of white dragons). What makes it even better is that I told them that I was going to get a yakuman while we were shuffling the tiles for that round. :] Once in a lifetime appearance, I guess?

I have also made Suu Ankou at tenhou but I\'m afraid I don\'t have a screenshot of that.

If it was in the main lobby(L0000) you can just alt+f for your name here.

Edit: four players mode only, and a maximum of one month old logs.

So I just got my third three-player kokushi musou on Tenhou, but I\'m wondering why it wasn\'t a double Yakuman.

I was playing three player with a tenpai for south, my pair being north. I tsumo the south, but wanting the double yakuman, I decided to--rather than declare the win--dora the north and hope to draw any terminal or honor. I tsumo a west and declare the win, which, to my surprise, is only counted as a single yakuman.

Is there some rule about kokushi musou where it\'s not a double yakuman if in furiten? Or is it some strange 3-player rule?

It\'s Tenhou. 13wait Kokushi, suu ankou tanki, and 9wait Chuuren(?) does not count as double yakuman.

Seems that my suu ankou at tenhou was over 1 month ago. Anyways, here\'s another suu ankou which I completely forgot about:

Aha! I can join the Yakuman club!
I got a Big 3 Dragons today playing in real life, though, it was 3 players. We were playing with 3fan+ rule, so I was going for honitsu + 2 dora + dragon pon until I picked up 4 more, then voila. Someone reached and dropped my red dragon and before that someone dropped my green dragon. :)

Woah!
Reaching with the chun while someone else had the haku and hatsu as open pon.
I wouldn\'t dare to even discard that...

Sorry sorry, let me clarify. He reached earlier, and picked up the chun, so he HAD to discard it, haha. I only had the Green Dragon as open pon, White was concealed. Man I have to learn Japanese terminology asap.
