The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 135.1
Chapter 135: Stone Gambling Tournament 4
After Han XinYu had finished selecting his jadeite, he left the gambling stone area and went to cut his pieces.
Every night, the stone cutting area was always filled with people, but at this time there were almost no people. There were currently only three people like Han XinYu who had finished making their selections early.
The other two were also young talents with outstanding aptitudes who happened to be from the same family. It seemed that for today’s game, they were all confident.
Sure enough, all three of them got good results after they had cut their stones, especially Han XinYu. All five of his pieces had managed to gamble up which gained him a total of 240 points.
Han XinYu put the five pieces of jade he had won into his space button, then returned to the lodging area happily. What greeted him was not the praise and approval of his brother or the others, but their extremely solemn looks. Even Lin Luo, who always had a soft smile on his face, was looking at him worriedly.
“Brother, Xiao Luo… What’s wrong with you guys…?” Han XinYu suddenly felt a little uneasy.
“Xiao Yu, we watched your game.”
“Is there a problem?”
“There’s a big problem.” Han XinYuan said solemnly, “Did you forget what I said to you yesterday?”
Han XinYu remembered that last night his brother told him to be calm and composed during the game, analyze well, think more about things, and be cautious when making choices.
“I haven’t forgotten, I did what I was advised to do.” Han XinYu said a little aggrievedly.
Today, he analyzed every gambling stone very carefully, then made his choices only after determining that he would be betting on a jadeite that would rise in value. Moreover, all five of his pieces rose in value, and the score was also high. He felt that his performance today should have been considered very good.
Han XinYuan sighed and didn’t say much. He directly turned on the holographic projection and played the live broadcast in the room. “You can see for yourself.”
In the picture, a middle-aged man is cutting a stone. The window cut by the chrome knife already showed a faint blue color, and there was a piece of green waxy ice jade placed at his feet.
“Do you know that this person just scored 180 points on a single gambling stone? Plus the piece in his hand will continue to rise, and the score will definitely not be low.” Han XinYuan said in a deep voice.
Then he cut the feed to show the playing field again, and a figure familiar to Han XinYu appeared in the picture. The person was very young and had a rather immature face. Behind him was a handling robot, and there were already five gambling rocks on the towing trailer.
“This is Du Wen…?” The Han family and Du family were both stone gambling families. Du Wen’s gambling ability was equivalent to Han XinYu’s. When Han XinYu saw him staying in the gambling area so late, he felt a little surprised.
He saw Du Wen pick up a gambling stone and observe it carefully for a long while before he replaced one of the five gambling stones he had already selected, and then confirmed the payment with satisfaction.
“How many points do you think Du Wen can get?”
“It… should be about the same as me, right?”
Han XinYuan shook his head, “Take a good look at Du Wen, then come back to me after watching him.”
After he had finishing speaking, he didn’t wait for Han XinYu’s response, and already pulled Lin Luo and the others out of Han XinYu’s room.
Han XinYu and his brother had been in a good relationship since they were young. Naturally, it was clear to him that Han XinYuan’s behavior just now meant that he was angry, but he had no idea why his brother was so upset. He turned on his light brain with a little grievance and worry, and started to watch Du Wen’s live broadcast.
Du Wen moved on to the stone cutting area. Just like Han XinYu, all five of his pieces went up, but the jadeite that he had picked out went up by much more than Han XinYu’s. In the end, the supervisors gave him 690 points.
He thought back to the middle-aged man his brother had showed him at the beginning and remembered how he was able to win a lot of points for each stone bet, and his heart sank. He seemed to understand why his brother and Lin Luo had those similar expressions just now.
It was too late to look back with regret now. In the end the problem was that he was too arrogant and almost forgot that he didn’t just need to stay through the knockout rounds. More importantly, he needed to get enough points to rank according to total points by the last day.
He thought that his performance today was good enough, but he forgot that there were so many people competing with him who weren’t just ordinary stone gambling experts, but real stone gambling masters. If they weren’t, it would have been impossible for them to enter the professional rank of the tournament in the first place.
He had been proud of himself on being smart about saving time and energy by making quick choices. In reality though, all he had done was to give up the opportunity to choose better jadeite, which could have possibly caused him to end up being left behind by the other competitors.
After watching the live broadcast, Han XinYu went to knock on his brother’s door with a pale face.
The door opened, Han XinYuan and Lin Luo were both in the room, and they seemed to be waiting for him.
“Do you know where you were wrong?”
“I know.” Han XinYu said word by word.
Han XinYuan sighed, stepped forward, and rubbed his brother’s head, “It’s fine. So long as you understand, there’s still a chance. Work hard tomorrow.”
