Chapter 109: I Just Despise You (Part two)
Just at that moment, someone walked over and looked towards Xu Cheng. “Officer Xu?”
Xu Cheng curiously looked at him. In fact, he already recognized the guy. He was one of the top 5 gambling masters in the world – Mike, that Li Chao was talking about. However, Xu Cheng just pretended like he was confused.
Shen Yao took the chance and walked away.
Xu Cheng looked at Mike curiously and asked, “Sorry, you are?”
Master Qin walked over, smiling, and said, “Officer Xu, you don’t even know Mike?”
“Why? Should I recognize him? Which parent in this society would want their kid to befriend a gambler? Mr. Mike, it’s not that I despise you, I just want to tell this Master Qin that it’s best if people work hard and stay on the right track. Don’t always think about becoming rich through devious ways.”
Mike and Master Qin’s faces both slightly changed. They didn’t expect Xu Cheng to be this straightforward. In this kind of situation, normal people would at least try to be subtle with their insulting remarks, but who knew Xu Cheng would be so direct.
Mike put down his glass of wine, looked at Xu Cheng, and said, “Mr. Xu, do you think gambling is a devious path? Then, let me ask you, Officer Xu, how much do you earn?”
Xu Cheng faintly said, “Not much, just 30 thousand yuan every month.”
Mike then replied in disdain, “Then you have no qualification to look down on me. Do you know? In Las Vegas, I earn 100 thousand just by helping out casinos every month. And, they are American dollars, none of your yuan crap. I don’t know where you got your sense of superiority to speak to me like this. To be honest, I’m quite disappointed in Huaxia due to your attitude just now.”
Xu Cheng laughed. “Then I can only say, Mr. Mike, the people that hired you must be blind. I don’t know where you get your confidence to accept a salary that high. Is it just because you know how to gamble?”
Mike: “Yes. On the poker table, I can toy you in circles. If you dare to play with me, I will make you pay. Of course, to those that don’t know how to gamble and only know how to talk, like keyboard warriors, I really can’t do anything too. However, although you look down on me, I despise you even more.”
On the side, Master Qin said to Mike, “Mr. Mike, I think this Officer Xu is looking down on you because half a month ago, he was able to make a hundred yuan turn into 100 thousand yuan within 30 minutes. I think that achievement gave him confidence in front of all gambling masters.”
“Oh?” Mike narrowed his eyes. “So Officer Xu’s a pro too? Then I’m very curious, since you also know how to play, then why not go a few rounds with me instead of just talking?”
Xu Cheng took a sip of wine. “What do you want to play?”
“Of course we won’t be playing with money. I know you don’t have much with that salary of yours,” Mike said, “But since there are so many people here today, maybe let’s each show a few moves?”
Then, he took out a deck of cards from his pocket and said, “This is a full deck, and I will throw it into the sky. Let’s each catch four cards in the air, and let’s compare the face value of the cards we each get to see whose hand is bigger. If you lose, then you should apologize to me in front of everyone.”
Xu Cheng then looked at him and replied nonchalantly, “What happens if you lose?”
“I, Mike, will voluntarily quit the world of gambling! But today, I will let you witness the difference between a normal gambling pro and a world-class gambling professional. Besides memorizing cards, our fundamental skills are all at the peak as well.”
Then, he single-handedly shuffled the deck as a performance and blindly picked out the Ace of Spades, while looking at Xu Cheng provocatively.
Xu Cheng laughed, “Mike, if you lose, I just want you to leave this place.”
Mike: “Very well!”
