Chapter 36.2 Unprecedented
How could Tian Nineteen let Shen Lang go? If his father knew he allowed Shen Lang to leave the gambling house with 4,000 gold coins, he’d skin him alive. Besides, his gambling skills was extremely high. How else could he have become Tian Heng’s righteous son and the master of gambling and placed in charge of running the gambling house? Within Xuanwu City alone, no one was his match. He could even close his eyes and he’d win.
And against technical gambling like cards? Even more so he’d win. He could easily recognize the card’s number from the back of the card. After all, the card’s had a mark, but it was obscure and one would have trouble seeing it. Shen Lang wanted to play a game that was his specialty? Heh, it was time for him to be obliterated.
The white lotus will continue losing from this moment forward, and while in the face of distress, he’ll continue borrowing money to the point that he’d no longer be able to repay back. It was an ingenious plan.
This method would surely have the Count drive Shen Lang out of the house and cut their relationship off. Following that would mean the loss of his protection. His death would follow soon after.
The rules for playing the cards was much simpler than on Earth. Each needed only to place nine of the thirty-two cards on the table upside down. Each of the player would then reveal the sizes of their cards.What was on the card would determine who’d win or lose.
But before the game began, Shen Lang suddenly said, “I don’t trust your cards. Who knows what’s in this. You should go and send someone to buy a new set. I won’t continue until this happens!”
Soon as this was said, Tian Nineteen frowned. Every card he’s used since now had a mark. He could easily recognize it from the back.
“If not, then I’ll go. Please exchange this.” Shen Lang stood up.
“No, d-don’t. You, go buy new cards.”
He couldn’t have Shen Lang leave. If he did, he’s finished. Father would kill him in a fit of anger.
Without saying a word, a man rushed out to buy new sets of cards. After he returned, Shen Lang examined it with his x-rays, and discovered that the other half had no mark. He chose the card without a code so it’d be impossible for the other party to cheat.
“I’ll have that one.” Shen Lang pointed as if it was random.
Since Tian Nineteen’s original plan had been thrown off, it shouldn’t prove difficult. He’s Xuanwu City’s gambling master, after all. No one here could compare to him. Even if he didn’t cheat he’d still win!
The match had officially began.
“Why don’t you draw the cards first,” Shen Lang beckoned.
Tian Nineteen nodded and drew two cards.
Shen Lang activated his x-ray vision to be able to peer through the cards.
This Tian Nineteen, he was a lucky one. He drew two plum blossom cards, the sixth largest combination.
“Hundred gold coins.” Tian Nineteen pushed 100 gold coins on the center table.
He was confident. He had the sixth largest combination. Shen Lang would need to draw a larger combination to win over him.
Shen Lang didn’t even look at his cards before he betted 1,000 gold coins. This was gambling at its finest.
The crowd gasped.
They had borne witness to Shen Lang not once taking a look at his cards. He just straight away bet 1,000 gold coins.
“Open the cards!”
Shen Lang and Tian Nineteen flipped their cards over.
Shen Lang won!
Cold sweat poured down Tian Nineteen’s temples.
No… this wasn’t over yet…
…..However…. it had become the beginning of his nightmare, a never-ending nightmare…
Every round played, Shen Lang never once bothered to look at his cards, only betting 1,000 gold coins each time. What’s more, he kept winning and winning!
A cold chill ran down Tian Nineteen’s spine as he trembled uneasily.
He’s definitely in hell!
