Largest number of dora that you've made in a winning hand...

Post by Goldeneye » Thu Mar 01, 2012 6:13 am

I can say that this is not a world record, but I've made a hand with 12 dora once - and yes, I got a counted yakuman since my yaku were riichi and tsumo.

My second highest number of dora is 9, also part of a counted yakuman - the yaku were riichi, tsumo, sanankou and a chun ankou.

I've seen hands on youtube that have had 17 dora and 16 dora - JRM (probably including JRM3) stops counting the dora after 12, since it displays dora - kazoe yakuman when there are 13 or more dora.

My record is 11 (without red fives too). This was actually my first yakuman. :D

Unfortunately, I'm not much of a dora bomber. If I were to recall from my shoddy memory... I'd say SIX. :?:

8. Only yaku was riichi. It was two reds, with a shanpon wait on the dora and the first kan dora. Dealer dropped the 7th as his last discard rather erroneously - he would have had a tenpai even if he had kept it. One ura from the 3 just to rub the baiman in.

Well, not long ago, I made a hand with 10 Dora, scored as a sanbaiman since my only yaku was riichi.

Details are in that Sanbaiman thread.

I don't remember if I've ever had more than the 8 dora I got in the 1st hand of this game I just played and it doesn't matter.
What I did like was the way I got them. I just saw this a few days ago in episode 3 of the Akagi anime and it's still fresh in my mind.
Akagis' opponent, Yagi, had four 8-bam in his hand and used a cheating technique called the caterpillar to slip two 7-bam into the wall in front of him so that the 7 would be the dora indicator. When he declared the kong and flipped the kan dora, the other 7 appeared and he had an instant 8 dora. Shame on him!
Naturally, I got mine honestly for a 16,000 pt tanyao dora 8, 50fu 9 han baiman. Great way to start the game!

I am seemingly allergic to dora, unless it's a dora yakuhai pair, I very rarely get more than 3 in a hand.

I tend to hit ura-dora like a madman though.
