The grand gamble was striking everyone’s nerves, again and again, making most people flustered and their hearts beating wildly. Unexpectedly, in the second round, Liu Zixing uncharacteristically bet at the lowest value.
Was he quitting when he was ahead? Unlikely, if he knew when to stop, he wouldn’t have won so much in the first place.
So, what was the point of concession at this time? Such behavior was probably directed to irritate the gambling hall.
“Ten thousand?” Ah Jie looked at Liu Zixing, trying to confirm it again.
Liu Zixing didn’t hesitate at all. He just nodded briefly and said abruptly, “The representative from my side drew first just now. This time it’s your turn. This is fairer.”
“Sure.” Ah Jie smiled slightly.
His representative could only force himself to start drawing cards again. Even if he lost this time, he would only lose 10,000 yuan. He felt lesser psychological pressure!
In the last game, 300 million was lost in his hands. His heart was completely broken at this time. He initially thought that it would be easy to earn the labor fee of 1 million. Considering that he represented Ah Jie, the casino’s consultant, it would be an easy victory. He didn’t expect to suffer a defeat in the first round.
He seemed to have seen his destiny in the future. Although they said he would not be held accountable, it could be just superficial words. After this, he would not escape from the person behind this clubhouse and need to work for a lifetime. In other words, he would be the toy of various women.
He had collapsed entirely. I would need to at least win once. Even if he would not win a lot, he could salvage the casino’s reputation.
He closed his eyes and drew a card abruptly. Then, he threw the poker card on the table with no courage to look at it. He piqued his ears, listening to the reactions of the people around him.
He heard the faint discussions, as well as surprises. He opened his eyes nervously. When he saw the card he had drawn, he immediately slumped on the chair – 2 of Square.
It would be over.
The bet was only 10,000. But, it was not the money that was at stake but the casino’s prestige. The representative man looked at Ah Jie next to him in horror. He noticed the slight twitch on Ah Jie’s brow.
I’m done for… He didn’t even have the strength to stand up.
“Then, is it time for me to draw?” Hou Chen Yuhan looked at Liu Zixing nervously.
Liu Zixing suddenly said at this moment, “Go and draw the first card on your left.”
Hou Chen Yuhan was taken aback, and then she remembered. Although both parties asked the representatives to draw cards, they didn’t clarify at the beginning whether the representative was allowed to instruct the representatives to draw cards. The casino consultant, on the other side, seemed to have acquiesced it with no objection.
Hou Chen Yuhan wasn’t quite nervous for now. Even though she didn’t know the ins and outs of gambling, she recognized the card values. The opponent’s card was a 2 of Square. Among the remaining cards not drawn, there were only 4 cards that would dictate her loss. It should be an easy win.
Did Liu Zixing randomly pick one for me to draw because of this?
Hou Chen Yuhan nodded, took the first card on the left, and revealed the card – A of Clubs!
“She lost? Damn it!”
“I won?” The representative man jumped up in excitement.
Everyone was surprised at such an unexpected situation. Only Ah Jie’s gaze became more serious.
Liu Zixing seized the time and threw another set of chips worthed ten thousand to start the final round without giving everyone time to react.
“Clubs…4.” The representative man drew the card for the third round. It had a small value too. He collapsed again with his eyes turned bloodshot. He felt so wronged that he almost wanted to cry.
Liu Zixing looked at Hou Chen Yuhan at this time. “The second one on the right.”
Hou Chen Yuhan drew another card again…3 of Spades. They lost again in the third game.
“Fine, the last three rounds are over.” Liu Zixing stood up at this time, looked at Ah Jie, and asked, “Can I exchange the chips for cash now?”
The one answering was not Ah Jie, but a middle-aged man approached with a smile. Only a tiny number of people at the scene knew that this middle-aged man was the real casino boss. But among these very few, only one or two people knew that Fengshan was working for someone. There was a stronger force behind them.
Fengshan smiled slightly at this time and said, “However, I can’t provide you with so much cash. Mr. Liu, we can only do bank transfers or cheques. I wonder what is more convenient for Mr. Liu.”
“Split the money into two cheques.” Liu Zixing said calmly, “One with 89.5 million. For the rest, you can transfer them into this account.”
He wrote down an account number and handed it directly to Fengshan.
“Yes.” Fengshan still smiled faintly, “Mr. Liu, do you want to wait at our VIP room?”
“It’s fine. I’ll wait here.” Liu Zixing still sat at his initial seat.
“Please wait.” Fengshan didn’t say much, nodded, and left with Ah Jie.
However, no one took the initiative to approach Liu Zixing at this time. Even those who knew him avoided him at this time, even if he had about 600 million in cash.
“Could it be a display staged by this casino?” A particular boss interested in conspiracy theories was guessing.
“It’s hard to say. You don’t know about this clubhouse, but they won’t resort to this kind of petty tricks.” A small minister of another country kind of grasped the situation.
“How so?” replied a curious and rich young master.
“600 million may appear a lot, but it’s not an exaggeration to say it isn’t a big deal for the casino’s backer.” A wealthy businessman from a particular province who just came here to inspect the consumer’s market blurted.
The discussion was still going on. They seemed to integrate the discussion into a conclusion. They could only wait for Liu Zixing’s follow-up news. Anyway, he was also in the circle. There would be people finding out news about him, sooner or later.
Fengshan was preparing the check at the casino’s finance department. However, he looked at Ah Jie and asked, “Has his good luck been interrupted?”
He was more concerned about mystics and dark crafts taking place.
Ah Jie shook his head and said with a complicated expression, “To be honest, his luck hasn’t been interrupted. Director Feng, I’m sorry this time. I will pay the gambling hall for the loss of 300 million, but it will take a while. It’s only two months before the Las Vegas gambling contest starts. We will have to wait.”
“There’s no need to be in a hurry.” Fengshan shook his head, puzzled, “You said his luck isn’t interrupted but didn’t he have lost the last two rounds?”
“What if he lost on purpose?” said Ah Jie abruptly.
“You mean… he deliberately let himself lose?” Fengshan asked in amazement, “He doesn’t know gambling technique, and he has someone else acting on behalf of him. How could it be possible?”
Ah Jie sighed and exclaimed, “Director Feng, it’s not just good luck that you can win. The real good luck is the result follows your wish. You win if you want to win, and you lose if you want to lose.”
Fengshan felt that it made sense after he heard it. Looking at Liu Zixing’s calm expression, he became a little convinced, “Sure enough, the world is so big. Surprise is everywhere. We need to look out for this guy. En, the cheque is ready. You should send it over. I still have something to follow up.”
Ah Jie nodded, took the cheque, pushed the door open, and left straight away.
After a while, another man came to Fengshan’s side and said in a low volume, “Black Panther’s men are on their way here. Probably, they will stop Liu Zixing outside.”
“Has anyone realized it?” Fengshan asked calmly.
“No, I ordered a casino’s security guard to spread the news. Originally, the Black Panther was looking for Liu Zixing everywhere, and they even offered a bounty for it. They shouldn’t have thought that it was us intentionally releasing the news. Besides, Liu Zixing is in a high profile today. Even if we don’t spread the news, Black Panther will know.”
“Okay.” Fengshan smiled, “Then, let’s wait to watch the show. But later, if Black Panther dares to grab him right at our door, you will need to make a move.”
“Director, do we still help him?”
Fengshan said calmly, “The casino’s rule is to allow its customer to leave safely, at least within our area. Got it?”
The man nodded and said in a serious tone, “Police and criminals won’t be able to penetrate this place. They won’t be able to grab anyone in our territory. I got the orders.”
