The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 103.2
The Stone Gambling Association Headquarters on the Capital Planet was more magnificent than the bureau on Kipola. After registering their identity information at the reception counter at the door, they were taken to the competition venue by the staff.
The layout of the challenge venue where each Stone Gambling Association would hold their challenges was basically the same and the layout here also looked like a ring.
This was the second time that Lin Luo had participated in an official challenge, and the familiar feeling after entering the field made him feel very cordial. However, there were some differences from the last game. For example, the venue was very large this time, and there were many spectators who came to watch the challenge…
The last time Lin Luo participated in the challenge, he was a complete novice, so there were only a few dozen people in the audience. Today’s audience seemed to have 3,000 or 4,000 people in attendance, and the auditorium looked full. If someone wanted to come in and watch the game, they would have had to make a booking online. It seemed like those fans outside were those who weren’t able to buy tickets on the spot.
However, viewers who weren’t able to enter the venue could also watch the live broadcast in holographic mode on the official StarNet site of the Stone Gambling Association.
In order to cope with such a large crowd of spectators, the Stone Gambling Association had specially arranged the largest venue for them, but it seemed that it is still wasn’t enough. If it wasn’t for the fact that Lin Luo had helped Xing Mo and the others apply for a few positions in advance, it was likely that they would have had to stand.
Not long after the three were seated, Liang Chao also arrived at the scene. When the time had arrived, the two walked to the center of the arena together. Under the witness of the challenge supervisor, the two parties shook hands meaningfully.
“Gentlemen, the content of this competition is to select two pieces of jadeite from the jadeite we provided within an hour. The one with the jade of higher value after cutting wins.” The supervisor said in a calm tone.
Lin Luo and Liang Chao nodded at the same time, expressing their understanding.
Soon, two large carts of jadeite were hauled into the arena by transport robots.
The audience could clearly see every move on the field through the big screen above, so when they saw the appearance of the jadeite, they all exclaimed.
These jadeite looked very poor in appearance; almost all of them were scraps. How easy was it to choose two pieces that could gamble a winning jade from this kind of material? However, both of the participants were the chief stone gambling experts of energy companies, and their strength was definitely not comparable to ordinary novices, so it was understandable that the Stone Gambling Association wanted to increase the difficulty of the game appropriately.
However, if you listened carefully, there was almost no tension or worry in the exclamation of these audience members, but more excitement amidst the surprise.
They all knew that Lin Luo was famous for betting excellent quality jade out of scraps, and they firmly believed that this little problem would definitely not bother him.
“Intermediate level player Lin Luo challenges senior level player Liang Chao. The winner will get 100 points, and the loser will be deducted the corresponding points. Are you clear on the rules of the game?” Due to the different levels, the points of the challenge were different. After all, it only took 100 points to rise from the beginner to the intermediate rank, and one thousand points were required to rise from the intermediate to the advanced rank. Lin Luo’s current points were 912. As long as he won against Liang Chao, he would be able to rank as advanced, which was among the upper ranks.
“Yes.” Both said that they already knew the rules of the game.
“Then I hereby announce that the challenge has begun!” The supervisor announced.
The countdown on the big screen started, and Lin Luo and Liang Chao walked towards the two big carts together.
The jadeite had various colors and skins, but the quality was the same. Almost every piece had cracks and was covered with mud and sand. Not to mention, there were hardly any python bands or pine flowers. It couldn’t have been easy for the Stone Gambling Association to come up with so many pieces that looked so bad.
As time passed by, sweat gradually began to bead on both people’s foreheads. The time was too short, and the performance of the jadeite was too bad. It was really not easy for either one to find a piece they felt was worth betting on.
Each time Lin Luo looked up at the clock, out of the corner of his eye he would catch a glimpse of Liang Chao eagerly rummaging through the pile of jadeite.
In fact, this kind of rummaging behavior was understandable by Lin Luo. It was definitely too late to look piece by piece. He should be looking for a better-looking piece of jadeite to bet on by luck.
At the beginning, Lin Luo also searched and selected a few pieces of jadeite that looked slightly better, then examined and analyzed them carefully.
But Liang Chao’s behavior was a bit weird. He had been searching for too long. It didn’t look like he was searching randomly, but was searching for something purposefully…
Lin Luo couldn’t help but pay more attention to him, then after a few minutes, Liang Chao rummaged through the pile of jadeite to find a piece of pineapple skin jadeite that was the size of a football.
Liang Chao had barely taken a closer look before he placed it by his feet, then continued to look for another in the pile of jadeite.
Obviously, there was something fishy going on.
Lin Luo sneered secretly in his heart, and no longer wasted time to observe carefully, but used special abilities to search quickly.
