Chapter 116: Joseph’s Chance (Part one)
It was easy to see Shen Yao’s emotions from her face . When she got a good hand, there would be sparkling light in her eyes, and when she got a bad hand, she would subconsciously frown .
Maybe Xu Cheng also saw this weakness of hers, but it was too late to get her to fix that shortcoming . He could only utilize this to lay out the next trap .
When Shen Yao sat back down for another round, the dealer began dealing cards again .
Shen Yao also told her bodyguard to put all the chips out on the sideline as he stood beside her .
At the backstage, Shen Yao’s profile was already on Master Qin’s table . No wonder she looked so familiar to him, she turned out to be Mr . Shen’s treasured daughter . It was also now clear how she was able to take out so much money to play .
Shen Yao’s father’s assets were valued in the tens of billions, and plus he only had her daughter as his successor after his son died, so he especially treasured this daughter of his . However, they didn’t know that Shen Yao was in a big fight with her dad, but her dad did indeed feel guilty towards her and listened to everything she said .
“This Miss Shen’s usually very rebellious, she’s probably not here to mess with us . ” Master Qin saw how Shen Yao lost a few more rounds in a row and said to his men, “There’s no need to keep an eye on her anymore . Watch the others, especially those from Las Vegas . ”
Shen Yao consecutively lost more rounds and gave away a few millions, and those few millions allowed the other two players on the table to taste some sweetness .
In fact, Xu Cheng purposely told Shen Yao to fold, because it would only seem normal if she were to win some and lose some .
In the new round when Shen Yao was about to check on her face-down cards, Xu Cheng suddenly realized something and said to the bodyguard by Shen Yao’s side, “Seven o’clock of Shen Yao, there’s a hidden camera . Someone’s probably using that camera to cheat . Just shuffle over a few centimeters to block it . ”
The bodyguard received the order and immediately moved a little to one side, just enough to block the camera .
“Fack!” the staff at the casino that was prepared to help Joseph win back the money immediately saw something blocking the camera and got pissed . He then said to the dealer through the earpiece, “Camera blocked, I can’t see that girl’s cards anymore . You will have to make the call yourself . ”
The dealer frownd and glanced at the bodyguard behind Shen Yao . Seeing him just standing there expressionlessly, he couldn’t see any emotion or intention on his face .
Now, there was no way for them to peek at Shen Yao’s cards and then give signals to Joseph . All of this happened without Shen Yao knowing .
Xu Cheng took a look, and when the dealer was about to deal the hands, he already predicted what each player’s hand would look like . So, before the cards were dealt, he reminded Shen Yao, “Hey woman, there’s no need to be so obvious with the expressions on your face, okay? At least do a little acting, or just be more calm . I know you are very excited from winning a couple hundred million yuan, but you do know that you won that money for me, right?”
Yep, immediately after hearing that, Shen Yao felt depressed right away . At the thought that the hundreds of millions of yuan that she just won didn’t have much to do with her, she immediately displayed a discouraged expression .
That was right, that was the expression Xu Cheng wanted Shen Yao to put on her face, because her hand would be really good in this round .
Joseph and the other two players all narrowed their eyes as they tried to read Shen Yao . Seeing how she looked a bit depressed after getting those two face-down cards, they immediately guessed that this girl’s hand was pretty bad this round .
“The smallest card holder, open,” the dealer said to Shen Yao .
Correct, Shen Yao had a 5 of diamonds, which was the smallest revealed card on the table, and the dealer was asking if she wanted to bet .
“100 thousand,” Shen Yao said, not sounding very excited at all .
Chapter 116: Joseph’s Chance (Part two)
When it was Joseph’s turn, he just casually threw in a million . “Raise, one million . ”
The other two players both raised as well .
When the second revealed cards were dealt, Shen Yao got an 8 of diamonds .
Joseph saw that he had the 3 and 5 of hearts as his face-up cards, and 4 and 6 of hearts as his face-down cards, and he couldn’t be more excited, praying to every god there was to get another heart . If it was another heart, then he would at least have a flush! If he could get a 2 and 7, then it would be a straight flush! That would be one of the top hands to get .
However, Joseph felt it was quite a pity because he knew Shen Yao’s temper of folding right away if she didn’t get a good hand . What a pity for such a good hand he got this round, it would be unfortunate that he couldn’t win the couple hundred million back .
So, Joseph tried to contain his excitement, and he wanted to trick more people to raise before harvesting!
He coughed and sighed . “Looks like I didn’t pray enough before coming here today, I’m always getting crappy hands . But, being generous has always been my style . I’ll raise 5 million . ”
The other two players saw his face-up cards and then Shen Yao’s, both of which didn’t have high-value cards, so they decided to risk it and call the raise this round .
“Call . ”
“Call . ”
Joseph then looked at Shen Yao . “Your turn now, my beautiful lady . You indeed shocked me with that large win, I didn’t expect a girl to be so bold and courageous . ”
He was praising but also provoking Shen Yao .
Shen Yao just smiled and replied, “After winning so much money, I should at least give some back when I get a bad hand . Five million, I call as well . ”
When the dealer dealt everyone their third card, Shen Yao got a 9 of diamonds, so now, her face up cards were 5, 8, and 9, all of the same suit .
On Joseph’s side, he couldn’t feel more excited and he was just one step away from shouting loudly and throwing all of his money in . Just as he prayed, he got a heart, and even the 7 of hearts! Now, his hand was 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, which was a straight flush!
Then, seeing Shen Yao’s face-up cards, although they were all of the same suit, they were only 5, 8, and 9, with a 6 and 7 missing to be a straight flush! The difficulty of getting those two was through the roof, and even if the dealer dealt two more cards of the diamond suit, Shen Yao would only have a flush, while Joseph got a straight flush!
Seeing Joseph and Shen Yao’s face-up cards, the other two players were both quite scared, because both of them didn’t get any cards with the diamond or heart suits . This meant the probability of Joseph and Shen Yao getting those cards just got a lot higher .
But, even if Joseph and Shen Yao got a single card of a different suit, then the two’s hands were basically trashed . Now, it all came down to who had the balls . If you get it right, then you win tons of money; if you got it wrong, then you would fall into an abyss .
“Joseph, with 7 points, you can speak first,” the dealer said .
Joseph directly threw in 10 million . “We are already in the fifth round, it’s not my style to give up now . ”
The other two players looked at his face, wanting to see if he was acting .
One of them took a look at his hand and saw that the biggest hand he had was a pair of aces, so he decided to fold .
Meanwhile, the other player got a straight . He gritted his teeth and said, “I’ll call your raise . ”
Joseph laughed and looked towards Shen Yao . “Your turn . ”
Shen Yao frowned, pretending to be struggling .
Xu Cheng couldn’t help but compliment her, “I have to give you a perfect score for your acting . ”
In fact, Shen Yao was trying even harder than Joseph to shout out of excitement and go all in, because her hand was simply too godlike! However, this might be the last chance she had to get as much money as possible from this guy, so she must not mess it up .
“Mr . Joseph, can you guess what kind of hand I have this time?” Shen Yao asked .
Joseph laughed and said, “There’s only a one-in-a-hundred chance that you have a straight flush, and a 7% chance that you have a flush . Based on my guess, I think you have a flush at best, or maybe just a straight . ”
Shen Yao laughed, “Then Mr . Joseph, are you scared?”
Joseph smiled and replied nonchalantly, “You want to get some clues on what my hand is? I just want to say that as long as you raise, I don’t mind accompanying you for another thrilling round . ”
“Then what are we waiting for? 20 million!” Shen Yao was straight to the point .
