The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 134.2
The next day, many more people were eliminated. Some tried to be clever. For example, some people after screening the jadeite the previous day noted down the approximate position of the jadeite they liked and planed to go look at it again today. Unfortunately, they were told they weren’t allowed to enter the same rock gambling area repeatedly, so their planning was all for naught and they could only start over in a new area.
The third day of the competition was the most intense. This day was the last day of the elimination rounds. The final top ten would be ranked according to the points obtained during the competition, which meant that this day was their last chance to earn points.
The remaining players were already considered to be the strongest in this rank, so they were the ones who were more cautious in the selection process.
On the morning of the fourth day, the overall rankings and the top ten finalists were announced.
In the afternoon of the same day, the head to head matchups were directly drawn by lottery to determine the top five.
On the fifth day, the championship competition was held in the central square. All spectators were allowed to go to the scene to watch and witness the moment when the new primary rank champion was born.
Due to the fact that there were too many people, Xing Mo and their contingents had to join the ranks of the local garrison to maintain order.
After that was the elimination rounds for the intermediate rank. The intermediate rank is more difficult than the beginner rank, and the competition is more intense. Once a person made a mistake, they would face elimination.
When it came to the advanced rank competition, the difficulty once again rose by a level. Everyone had to choose five pieces of jadeite every day, three of which had to bet a rise in value. The time was tight and the pressure was high. For every player, the requirements were very difficult to overcome.
He Kun, Xu Jian and Zhao XiaoLei are all senior players. Although they had made great progress over the last year and Lin Luo had repeatedly comforted them to relax, on the day of the game they still had difficulty shaking off the tension.
All three of them survived to see the end of the first day of the game without danger, but they all were scared and as sweaty as if they had just been fished out of the water.
He Kun’s performance was the best of the three. On the first day not only were four of his five pieces winners, but one of which was a big rise, so the points he earned reached double digits all at once.
Although Xu Jian didn’t have as many points as He Kun, four of his five pieces were also winners. In contrast, Zhao XiaoLei was in a more precarious position. He had two pieces of jadeite that gambled down, which in turn caused him to be more stressed.
The next day, Zhao XiaoLei’s situation was still not optimistic. Although he wasn’t eliminated, he still failed on two of his pieces. It was likely that his ranking wouldn’t be high.
In order to prevent him from losing his confidence their small group helped him to review the content of the two days of the game and helped him analyze some things that he easily overlooked.
On the third day, Zhao XiaoLei’s condition was much better. He played steadily and bet on a big increase, so his points rose by a lot.
On the fourth day, the rankings were announced. He Kun ranked fifth in total score, Xu Jian was eighth, and Zhao XiaoLei was tenth. The three of them all squeezed into the top ten together. It could be said that it was no easy feat.
Zhao XiaoLei was eliminated in the head on head duels and didn’t make it to the top five. Meanwhile He Kun performed exceptionally well and got second place while Xu Jian scored fifth.
He Kun and Xu Jian both earned the right to participate in the professional rank competition, which was already a remarkable improvement for them.
Although Zhao XiaoLei didn’t advance, he was still happy for his two good friends. He knew that his ability wasn’t as good as theirs. Even if he barely entered the next game, it would only increase the pressure on himself. Anyway, being able to get the top ten in the advanced rank was already very good.
Everyone went out and had a big meal together as a celebration, and all the jade that they won in the game was sold directly to the company.
For He Kun and Xu Jian, there was still a tough battle to be fought, and they just hoped that they wouldn’t be eliminated too soon.
Han XinYu would also participate in the professional rank competition with them, but he was trying his best to enter the top five. He wanted to get the opportunity to compete with his brother and Lin Luo.
That said, it was very difficult to have four out of five pieces of jadeite bet up. The strength of the players participating in this round of the competition wasn’t on the same level as those before, and the competition would only become more intense.
On the day of the game, the three of them arrived at the gambling area on time. After verifying their identities, they all entered different areas and started to choose their stones.
Han XinYu had the assistance of his mental power and observed very carefully. After judging that he could bet up on a piece, he directly made his choice. After only half of the day’s allotted time was through, he had already chosen his five pieces of jadeite.
This made Han XinYuan and Lin Luo, who were watching the live broadcast, frown slightly. Han XinYu was still too young and a little overly eager to succeed.
It wasn’t difficult for Han XinYu to pass the first three days of the knockout rounds, but it would be tough to get enough points to enter the top ten. The other players weren’t so weak, and every day’s stone selection time was a very precious opportunity.
However, these words could only be told to Han XinYu after the first day of the tournament was over.
