Best non-yakuman revisited

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)

And the Bill Clinton game - yea, I literally played after hearing his speech. My mood was so good that day. :mrgreen:

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.
Riichi
Chinitsu (flush)
Ittsuu (straight)
iipeiko (double run)
Dora

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.)
