Chapter 114: The Opponent’s Bluff (Part two)
In fact, Xu Cheng already saw through all the cards on the table, and he also predicted what each player would be getting. He already knew that Joseph would get three aces, which wouldn’t defeat Shen Yao’s straight. But, for an experienced player, three aces were enough for him to take risks. One must say, Joseph was a man of courage.
Xu Cheng saw Shen Yao was a bit blank, so he reminded her through the earpiece, “Don’t let your mind wander off. Hurry up and raise.”
Shen Yao came to her senses, but she was still a bit worried. She was scared that her straight might not be able to beat Joseph’s hand. After all, straights weren’t that high up on the list, and there were many hands that could beat hers.
Feeling that Shen Yao was hesitating, Xu Cheng reminded her, “Believe me, just raise however much you want and try to win as much as possible.”
Pouting her lips, Shen Yao pushed over 100 million yuan in chips. “A hundred million!”
The two players on the side that already gave up all took in a deep cold breath. They didn’t expect the woman to play this big.
“Beautiful lady, if you are playing like this, how could I have the heart to take your money? I’m scared that you will cry like a baby after losing.”
Shen Yao rolled her eyes at him and said, “Then you should fold.”
Joseph shrugged his shoulders. “That’s clearly not going to happen. I already put a lot of money on the table now.”
Shen Yao: “Aren’t you very generous?”
Joseph deviously smiled. “But no one doesn’t like money, not even women are as attractive as it.”
Then, he pushed in another pile of chips. “I raise 100 million with you.”
Without a second word, Shen Yao pushed in another two hundred million.
The dealer frowned, feeling that something was off. Logically speaking, if Shen Yao’s hand wasn’t a straight, then it would be completely useless. So, the most probable reason that she was still raising was because she had a straight. The dealer immediately looked towards Joseph, giving him the eye that was telling him not to follow.
Seeing the dealer’s signal, Joseph was suddenly stunned.
What the hell is this? Wasn’t this woman sent by you guys to give me money?
“Sir, if you are not calling, just fold.” Shen Yao smiled.
Joseph took another look at Shen Yao’s revealed cards – a 5, a 7, and an 8.
“You have a straight?” Joseph asked Shen Yao, trying to probe.
Shen Yao laughed, “If you are scared, then just fold.”
If she really had a straight, then Joseph would for sure lose. However, he already threw in so much money, was he really going to fold now?”
Immediately devising a new plan in this situation, Joseph immediately laughed, “No matter how you play your hand, it’s a straight at best, and a pretty average straight. You think I’m scared of straights? I’m in, 200 million!”
He decided to bluff, using high stakes to scare Shen Yao.
Shen Yao’s face slightly changed, and she became a bit nervous. Oh crap, he saw through my hand but is still not afraid? Should I still raise?
At this moment, Xu Cheng’s voice came again. “There’s something in gambling called bluffing. He just wants to pretend that he saw through your hand and then scare you, because your hand is just too obvious. Anyone would know that the biggest hand you can have is a straight, and most likely you don’t even have it. So, even if your opponent’s hand isn’t bigger than yours, they will try to scare you. Just listen to me, if he dares to follow, then you should just keep on going. It’s my money if you lose anyways, why are you scared?”
Shen Yao suddenly came to a realization, and she calmed down. Hopefully, Xu Cheng was right.
Seeing Shen Yao hesitating, Joseph’s smile became brighter.
“How about it, are you raising again?”
Shen Yao gritted her teeth, and then she said to the casino staff, “I would like to get more chips. Raising!”
I want to be able to pull that much money out of my butt :<
