Chapter 274: Money is Just a B-tch (Part two)
Stephen: “Beat me first before saying that.”
Xu Cheng: “That’s what you said before though, you lost 200 million from the last round already. Just go and get a billion, weren’t you okay with playing at my high-bidding table?”
Stephen paused for a moment. He waved his bodyguard off and his bodyguard left.
In the back room, after Beiye got the chips ready, he gave it to the bodyguard as he looked at the manager and said, “If these two screw up too, then I think your time at this casino is also up. Right now, we already lost 800 million, and now it’s a billion. Plus the 500 million Peel that just took out, I already took out 2.3 billion dollars. These funds were temporarily transferred from our legitimate company, and if that money were to disappear… assets suddenly disappearing will cause the company’s stock price to plummet. You better know the consequences of that.”
The manager swallowed his spittle.
Inside the VIP room, the battle went on.
After the dealer washed the deck, he let the guests split the deck.
Xu Cheng didn’t want to waste time here, he directly activated his penetrating vision as his brain quickly worked its magic to see how he should cut it so everyone gets a big hand but he also gets the biggest hand.
At this moment, Peel said politely, “I will pass, who wants to do the honors?”
Stephen also said politely as he gestured towards Xu Cheng, “Then let Mr. Xu do the honors.”
At this moment, Xu Cheng already finished calculating, and he faintly smiled. “Since you two insist, then I will do it.”
Then, he lifted up a portion of the deck to the point he calculated.
At this moment, it would depend on who the dealer was to deal first, and it would be the first guy that would get the biggest hand. Xu Cheng betted that those two were going to keep on being polite and let him get dealt the cards first.
Peel pointed at Xu Cheng, “Let Mr. Xu go first then. You can start with him.”
Xu Cheng faintly smiled. “You are too nice.”
Stephen: “No problem.”
Before the cards were dealt, Xu Cheng already calculated and knew how everyone’s hand would look like.
His face-down cards would be Ace of Hearts, 3 of Diamonds, and the subsequent face-up cards would be 8 of Clovers, 2 of Clovers, and Ace of Diamonds. (A382A)
Stephen’s face-down cards would be K of Spades, Ace of Clovers, and the face-up cards would be 7 of Diamonds, 2 of Hearts, and K of Hearts. (KKA72)
Peel’s face-down cards would be J of Diamonds, 3 of Clovers, and the face-down cards were J of Spades, Ace of Spades, and 4 of Hearts. (J3JA4)
After confirming again, Xu Cheng calmly smoked his cigarette. After thinking about it, he felt a bit sad. Although he didn’t lack money, to live in this world, one will still be controlled by money. Especially this time, if it wasn’t because he had to save his in-law’s company, why would he have to be here trying so hard to make money? Then, taking a look at the Ace of Diamonds of the Dragon Division – Bei Shan, he was actually this obsessed with money. He sighed and said to Bei Shan, “You are basically a top-tier soldier and martial arts master, yet you would put yourself so low for money. Do you really have to? Masters should have the pride of a master!”
Bei Shan sneered. “This is how the evil world of capitalism works. You might not know this, but one of the top-5-ranking masters on the Sky Ranking once betrayed his organization just for money! Of course, I still have my bottom line. As for pride… If you throw 100 million at me, I would only say to you, ‘keep it coming’.”
Xu Cheng sighed. “Senior Brother, do you know? Your grandiose and sacred image in my eyes has been shattered.”
Then, he grabbed some chips on the table that were each worth 10 thousand and threw it into the corner of the room. “Money is just a b-tch!”
With some sound, the chips scattered onto the floor, and within a second, inside the room, Peel and Stephen’s bodyguards, the dealer, as well as the two security guards at the door directly went to grab it.
Xu Cheng pointed at them and said to Bei Shan, “See that? Those rotten souls, they sure are hopeless.”
Bei Shan looked at those guys that were fighting over for the chips with a face of envy as he mumbled, “F-ck, such a pity, I was one step too late.”
Xu Cheng: “…”
