The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 104.1
Chapter 104: Cheating Is Useless
At this time, the number of people who watched their challenge online on the official StarNet site of the Stone Gambling Association had exceeded 80 million, which could be said to be the highest peak in recent history, and most of them were there for Lin Luo.
【My goodness! Is there something wrong with my eyes? How do people choose from this kind of jadeite? The Stone Gambling Association is having too many problems, right?】
【But what Lin Luo is the best at is winning good jade from the scraps. I think Lin Luo will win this time!】
【That’s not necessarily true, Liang Chao also looks very good, you can see that he’s already selected one!】
【What’s the use of choosing fast? You can’t win without betting on a good jade!】
Lin Luo didn’t know that the audience on StarNet had started to quarrel. He was focusing on selecting jadeite.
His special ability was really very useful, and the inside of the jadeite could be seen at a glance when he touched it with his hand, so he quickly found two pieces of jadeite that he liked.
Lin Luo put two pieces of material at his feet, then told the inspectors that he had finished selecting. Since he had spent a lot of time observing the jadeite one by one before, it wasn’t abrupt for him to select two pieces of jadeite together at this point.
After choosing his own jadeite, Lin Luo watched Liang Chao calmly. Liang Chao was holding two pieces of jadeite in his hands at this time, both of which were iron sand skin, with black tinea and cracks on the surface. The appearance of both of them was really ugly.
Looking at Liang Chao’s pale face, Lin Luo snickered inwardly with some vindictiveness. Others might have thought that Liang Chao was observing and comparing these two pieces of jadeite, but Lin Luo had long seen through Liang Chao’s little tricks, and knew that he couldn’t judge which piece to choose.
He guessed that Liang Chao might be someone who bought off the Stone Gambling Association and learned about the content of the challenge ahead of time. However, even if he cheated, it wouldn’t be of any use. After all, it really wasn’t easy to choose two winning pieces from this pile of extremely poor jadeite in such a short time. Therefore, the person he bought should also have been a good stone gambling expert. With the help of his position, he likely helped him figure out the pieces with good potential in advance.
Just now after the supervisor announced the start of the game, Liang Chao rushed to the cart on the right at the fastest speed. It must have been that his person told him that the material he was looking for was placed in that cart. Unfortunately, these jadeite weren’t numbered, so Liang Chao could only search for them based on the appearance of the jadeite. However, these two pieces looked too similar to each other. He didn’t expect that there were two iron sand skins in the pile of jadeite that had similar traits, which made him unable to make a judgment between them.
“There are still five minutes before the end.” The supervisor’s prompt sounded, which was to remind Liang Chao and let him hurry up and make a choice.
Liang Chao’s face turned from white to red, and big beads of sweat slipped from his forehead and dripped into his eyes. He didn’t even bother to wipe them away. He stared at the two pieces of jadeite closely, as if he wanted to use his eyes to see through the thick matrix stone.
However, he didn’t have Lin Luo’s special ability. Finally, after the supervisors once again reminded him, he gritted his teeth and put the jadeite on his left hand back.
“I have chosen.” Liang Chao said.
The supervisor nodded and asked someone to transport the two carts of jadeite, and then let Lin Luo and Liang Chao take the jadeite they had selected into the ring.
“Now, begin cutting the stones.” The supervisor gave an order.
The piece of jadeite that Lin Luo wanted to solve was a piece of yellow sand skin jadeite with a messy appearance, and it looked like it would definitely lose.
【Can this material really win?】
【The skin on this piece of jadeite is really too bad…】
【This mixture of yellow, green and black looks disgusting!】
【Could this not be a random selection…?】
If Lin Luo could read the comments of these StarNet viewers, he would definitely refute their speculation. Sometimes the color of the jade matrix changes a lot, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. A good example was this piece of jadeite with black tinea scabs on the surface and striped patches, which actually had a possibility of containing jade. What’s more, he had already tested it with special abilities, and this piece of jadeite did indeed contain jade.
Lin Luo put the jadeite rack on the stone cutting machine and used the grinding wheel to aim at the black tinea scabs and grind them away.
As the grinding wheel rotated, the sand and gravel on the outer layer of the skin gradually fell off, exposing the fog layer inside.
【Oh my god, this is red fog, it seems to be really broken…】
The presence or absence of fog and the color of the fog reflected the internal conditions of the rough stone. The fog layers of different colors had different indications. For example, red fog and yellow fog were caused by excessive iron content, and excessive iron would easily make the jade dark. So almost everyone wasn’t optimistic about the chances of this piece of jadeite containing good jade…
However, Lin Luo knew that this was a normal situation. For example, this piece of jadeite also had a black tinea partition, which might prevent the iron from going too deep.
