If it's just a case that Yuu avoided something fairly straightforward, I take back what I said; it's just that the reaction of the rest of the Shiraitodai team seemed to suggest that avoiding Sumire's attack was something very unusual, which in turn looked like Yuu was using some special power that has sprung out of nowhere.
Perhaps, but after what I've seen in this page
Spoiler:

I have this feeling that what happened in this chapter is similar to what happened with Kuro.. that is to say, she did something out of her usual habit and thus why she could avoid direct hits. We still don't know how exactly Sumire's ability work, but I don't think it's pure godly luck like Saki. I think it's either manipulating her enemies to discard her winning tiles or perhaps high-perceptive ability that could foreseen what her enemies will discard next. If it's not the latter, I don't think she needs any special power to avoid direct hit but only an act that is out of Sumire's predictions (like Hisa who always tries to do hell wait).

That page seems hinting that she did something different (perhaps something like what Kuro did) than Sumire's prediction and thus making her be able to avoid direct hits...

Though I think it's best to wait for the full RAW before going deeper into this. If she really does have another special power... well, at least they've managed to get stronger in one day..however unthinkable it is.

I'm going with Yuu trying something different from usual, not even Saki does stuff like giving established characters new powers out of nowhere, and besides, she probably got some inspiration after seeing Kuro discarding a dora, after all, she knows better than anyone how important that was to her, so maybe she decided this match requires something different, especially when you have a sniper pointing at your neck.

And as for why Shiraitodai looks so shocked, maybe they just thought Yuu would be as predictable as Kuro, and therefore, easy prey. Maybe Yuu did some sort of particular play that no one expected using a "cold" tile, but nothing of the hax sort.

Don't worry. Shizu can handle that. Maybe. Hopefully. Well maybe not.

I just hope that her secondary protagonist powers help her pull at least pull a few upsets on Saki. God I hate Saki so much.

Shizuno: Okay... the jersey I'll take but flat as a board and nopan... look who's talking?
Awaii: Don't you ignore me here, Saki... your grudge is with me!
The fourth player: What am I supposed to be? Chopped liver? This is the Majhong Nationals, right? Don't you three ignore me! That's it!! When I win I'll be having my myself an oneechan and a big boobed wife!!

It's going to be a free-for-all-winner-takes-all battle...


If Teru is the siscon that she is then Saki and Awaii fighting over her will be heaven for her... one can never have too many little sisters in one's harem... she'll be like... blood-related little sister, check... non-blood-related little sister, check ... wife, check... glasses girl, check, tomboy, check... not mention the whole Shiratodai... I wonder how long Teru's list already is...

Because she made Toyone lose? Or some other reasons?

Requiem died in this mahjong avatar battle(In mechas). Salute and ensure his sacrifice won't be in vain. *Salutes* Communications are down.. Radars are also down... Can't see them now...

Wow, this Achiga-hen is much more exciting than I thought. (Maybe because it isn't so one-sided).

Peanutbutter summed things quite nicely, but he forgot to mention the fact that Yuu actually wears glasses! That's a big surprise for me, as she looks cuter with them on.

Harue is finally doing something!

No monsters playing this time so everyone gets a turn.

Awai does indeed refer to Teru simply as 'Teru'. Yikes! Must have taken some courage to do that the first time!

The last score:

Shiratodai from 196200 become 190700 (1)

Senriya from 80900 become 59800 (3)

Achiga from 74700 become 90100 (2)

Shindouji from 48200 become 59400 (4)

This is become slaughter of Senriyama. I think after this match Izumi also went to hospital, Mental Stress.

She just got aimed at alot of times... Same thing as what we did when we PVP each other in a PVP match.(I play such games before keep getting aimed for using a newbie unit or being too big)

My thoughts when reading Achiga : "I wonder how they'll get pass/overcome this?"
My thoughts when reading the main manga : "I wonder how Saki will rape them?"



I guess that's it for Senriyama in this round..
