I dealt into a yakuman and still won the game!

Post by Goldeneye » Sun Oct 21, 2012 4:36 am

Last night on Janryumon, in one of the games, I wound up dealing into a ko kokushi musou to the player to my right which knocked me to 4th at the time, but not out (to 7100).

I got all of it back and then some, and I managed to survive a tsumo ko baiman by the player to my left, winning by just 300 points (41,700 to 41,400), with the game over because the opponent across me went tobi with -5600.

The player who made the yakuman wound up a distant third (22,500) - nearly 20,000 points behind me and the player to my left.

And I am surprised that I didn't get an accomplishment token for that as almost always when one deals into a yakuman, that person usually goes tobi and game would be over - this is a very rare accomplishment to make!

Very cool! I've dealt into a non-dealer Sanbaiman and won once. I was so far ahead - honestly I was almost throwing tiles to let someone win (my hand was crap) though it turns out it was much closer than I expected on this final hand given my deal-in. I'll use more caution next time.

You want an accomplishment token because you somehow got lucky to escape from a screw up? Consider that gyakuten itself enough reward.
