At this time, the staff sent a set of brand new, unopened cards; he opened it on the spot. Ah Jie smiled at this moment, “Mr. Liu, please check the card.”
“No need.” Liu Zixing shook his head, “If you meddle in the cards, no one will be willing to come again in the future. I believe that you want to operate your business for a long time. You won’t want to ruin your future.”
“Then, let’s start.” Ah Jie nodded. He shuffled a brand new pack of poker cards with skillful technique. He placed it in front of Liu Zixing, “Mr. Liu, can you cut the cards?”
Liu Zixing did not check the wards, but he cut the cards personally. Technically, he certainly would not be as good as Ah Jie, but he was also an avid gambler.
“Director. Is it feasible for Ah Jie to bet like this? If he isn’t playing, then…”
Fengshan in the surveillance room frowned at this time and said with a serious face, “He should have his plan. Ah Jie is a disciple of the God of Gamblers. He is attempting to interrupt Liu Zixing’s luck.”
“Interrupt his luck?”
Fengshan nodded and said, “Luck fluctuates in a person’s life. It sounds mystical, but it is seemingly valid on the gambling table. There’s no real explanation to it. Some gamblers could sense their luck. It’s a saying from the experienced ones. For example, Liu Zixing, who has excellent luck, will be reluctant to leave his seat. As you can see, he prefers to gamble in the lobby instead of moving his seat. I’m afraid it’s because this seat brings him wealth… However, if he has another person representing him, things may change. Once his luck is interrupted, or he loses once, he is no longer scary! If he has someone else drawing the card, it depends on the other person’s luck…”
In the lobby, Liu Zixing made the first bet. He still pushed out all his chips without hesitation. His courage to go all in startled the onlookers.
Some seemed to have recognized him. After all, he was a young master known for gambling in the circle. There were always others who knew him.
“This guy seems to have changed today. I have never seen him in such frenzy before.”
“I heard that he was kicked out of the house by his mother. Their relationship was severed. Is today his comeback?”
“He has nearly 300 million in hand. If he stops now, he may not be as well-off as before, but at least he has the capital to make a comeback. Liu Zixing still doesn’t know his limit.”
“Who knows? Anyway, I heard that Black Panther is looking for him crazily. Probably, they are waiting just outside the clubhouse for him to come out.”
“Shh… It’s starting, don’t make a noise!”
A set of playing cards spread out in an arc. Hou Chen Yuhan stood unsteadily, her palms full of cold sweats. The opposing young man swallowed his saliva. His lips were slightly pale.
300 million yuan was at stake for the first round. Hou Chen Yuhan and her opponent were just ordinary people.
“Maybe it’s fate.” The man on the opposing side probably had professional instincts to please women. Although he was flustered, he had at least calmed down. He smiled slightly, “We can’t resist fate. For them, what happens is just a minute matter. But for us, we may not be able to experience it in our entire life. I think that the magic of fate is probably here. We don’t know what will happen at the next second, but because of this, there’s something to look forward to in the future.”
Something to look forward to in the future… Fate.
Amid everything, Hou Chen Yuhan remembered the flower cards that she had kept close to her. The precious flower cards could be used to buy what she wanted and change her life.
Is this fated?
She didn’t know that drawing a card required great courage. Choosing one from those flower cards would take a crazy amount of determination.
Her eyes were distracted. Although the opponent said some gentle words, he didn’t move. Obviously, he didn’t plan to draw the card first. He sort of fits the style of this place.
He pleases all women meticulously, but he is still in apathy.
Hou Chen Yuhan took a deep breath, reached her hand, but drew out a Diamond Five. A card that was not promising.
In this game, the card value would decide the winner. A was only one point. 5 only had five points too. It appeared quite unoptimistic.
Under everyone’s gaze, Hou Chen Yuhan knew that she might screw up. She subconsciously glanced at the man who asked her to draw the cards and found that he was still calm at this moment – at least, he seemed very calm.
Are you not worried? Or, even if you lose so much money at once, you don’t care at all?
“Then, it’s my turn.”
The opponent smiled slightly at this time. Since Hou Chen Yuhan drew 5 of diamonds, he had a higher winning chance. He also quietly looked at Ah Jie, the technical adviser of the casino. He found out that Ah Jie didn’t look at him at all. From the beginning, Ah Jie’s gaze had not left Liu Zixing for a moment.
“My turn to draw the card!” The man took a deep breath. Since the technical consultant didn’t say anything, he could only force himself to draw one from these cards.
He was different from a complete layman like Hou Chen Yuhan. This guy pressed the card on the table and pried its side bit by bit. He was almost lying on the gambling table, shouting something that Hou Chen Yuhan could not understand.
It was about the first glimpse as the card was pried little by little. The people around were also shouting in unison at this moment as if possessed.
“It’s scary, isn’t it? Casinos are like this. It can make people fascinated.” Liu Zixing said indifferently at this time, “Look at the people here. I think all of them even forget about their mother’s name.”
Hou Chen Yuhan was startled. This person is unfazed even right now. He is even in idle chatter with me like this, “But… but you?”
Liu Zixing said, “I hate this place very much. I hate it like never before. Look at the people around me. I feel uncomfortable every time I look at it. It’s so ridiculous and so stupid. They have no gratitude.”
“Then, why are you here…?” Hou Chen Yuhan frowned.
“I have a reason to come.” Liu Zixing stood up, “There is also a reason to win. Okay, I won. You are going to draw the second round.”
Hou Chen Yuhan turned her head in astonishment and saw that the gigolo was pale at this time. His palms trembled slightly; he looked at the poker card he was holding with horror; he seemed to be unable to stand still.
4 of Spade.
No matter how superior the spade was, they couldn’t win the smallest diamonds because of the numerical difference of four and five.
“Consultant…” the man yelled in confusion.
Ah Jie was still calm at this time, waved his hand, and said, “Give this Mr. Liu the chips. We pay the loss in the amount of the bet involved. We’re going to prepare for the second game. Get the cards ready.”
It was another unopened deck of cards. Ah Jie still asked Liu Zixing if he wanted to check the cards.
This time Liu Zixing also didn’t check the cards and didn’t even cut the cards. He just bet directly: 10,000 yuan.
