Oliver drew first in the first round, and Walter took the card first in the second round.
It made sense that Oliver asked for a head start in the third round.
But Walter suddenly had an ominous feeling in his heart!
Oliver could tell from the look of Walter while Walter was shuffling. Walter was particularly confident in this round.
Oliver also thought of what Walter thought in an instant. Even if they didn’t look at the card’s face and shuffled the cards against the table, the order of cards was fixed. If Walter had a good memory, he could remember it.
So Oliver wanted to draw first. Even if Walter remembered the order, as long as Oliver got Spade A first, Oliver would be the winner.
No matter how many plans Walter had, Oliver only needed one.
This time, Shark was not so nervous. He had won 300 million Oros in the first two rounds and Walter only had 200 million Oros left. Even if he lost this round, Walter would only win back his own capital and lose 100 million Oros.
And even if Oliver lost this round, he had all his 500 million Oros and 100 million Oros in profits. So he was relaxed.
At least he wouldn’t lose all he had at this moment.
Walter let Oliver go first, and Oliver didn’t refuse it either in this round. He didn’t need to think about anything else but getting Spades A.
After the identification, Oliver reached out and took a card.
As soon as Walter saw where Oliver drew the card, he couldn’t help but narrow his eyes.
At this point, he was absolutely sure that Oliver knew the number on the card because Oliver got a Spades A!
Turned over, it was indeed Spades A.
Shark clenched his fists and howled in a low voice, feeling completely relieved.
He won all the 500 million Oros worth of chips. It was over.
Walter stared at Oliver and then waved for his assistant.
His assistant opened a file pocket, took out a bank check, and said to Shark, “This is my Quesdia Bank check. One billion Oros in cash. Let’s bet the last round!”
Shark actually wanted to refuse, but he couldn’t. Walter came for revenge. If Walter didn’t get what he wanted, he could always come again.
Since he had Oliver now, Shark just went with it.
“Then let’s bet. I can’t refuse, can I?” Shark stared at Walter and mocked himself.
Walter then said to Oliver, “Mr. Eastwood, I want to change the game this time. Since you like to bet on luck, let’s cover the shuffler and shuffle the cards with the machine. No one can see or remember the cards, nor can anyone operate them manually. After the machine finishes the shuffling, we will choose three cards respectively. The winner will be determined by the number of points on the three cards. Three threes are the biggest number.”
Oliver knew this game where the winner was decided by the number of points from three cards. Nine points were the largest number, but less powerful than the nine points from three cards with number three.
Of course, Oliver didn’t object. This game was the same for him and he could identify the cards as well.
What Walter bet was that Oliver couldn’t get three threes.
Walter added, “We’ll do only one round. You and I will each bet one billion Oros.”
Walter took out a total of 1.5 billion Oros worth of chips. If Oliver lost, Shark would end Shark had no choice. He waved to the dealer to take the shuffler and then covered it with a thick cloth cover. Then he pressed the start button to start the shuffler under the cover.
The machine shuffled the cards much faster than human hands. No one knew how many cards had been shuffled. At Walter’s order, the dealer stopped the machine.
The dealer was very skilled. He took out the cards from the shuffler and put them on the table, then smoothly spread them out on the table in a graceful fan-like motion.
Walter glanced at Oliver.
Oliver reached out his hand and said politely, “Mr. Walter, you go first.”
Each of them drew the card first twice in the four rounds.
Without saying anything, Walter reached out and picked up three cards at random, but he didn’t turn them over.
Oliver could identify Walter’s cards’ numbers.
One Hearts Q, one Spades 2, and one Spades 7.
He actually got nine points.
He couldn’t have done it by remembering cards. It was pure luck.
Oliver had no choice but to win with three threes.
Everyone was staring at Oliver who seemingly picked out three cards randomly, but in fact, he didn’t take them until he had identified the cards.
A Diamonds 3, a Spades 3, and a Hearts 3, three threes.
Everyone wanted to see Oliver’s cards, but he didn’t turn them over and just looked at Walter.
Walter held the three cards in his hand and covered them to look at them alone.
The first, the second, and then the third card.
Walter looked at the cards very slowly, expressionless.
Oliver suddenly had an ominous feeling. He stared at the back of Walter’s cards and began to identify them again.
Then he saw a new color-coating glue layer on the surface of Hearts Q, and the card turned into Hearts 3.
Oliver was stunned and thought, “Damn it. This guy cheats.”
Looking at Walter’s second and third cards, Oliver found that these two cards also had a new color-coating glue layer that turned the cards into Diamonds 3 and Spades 3.
Oliver was wondering, ‘How did he cheat?
Where does the color glue come from?’
Oliver stared at Walter’s hand and tried to identify how the latter played tricks.
It turned out that Walter was wearing an ultra-thin skin-color glove on his right hand, which had an interlayer and a very small cut at the thumbprint, about 0.3 inches wide.
The cut was actually a superminiature color printing device. When Walter slowly looked at the cards, he reprinted the poker cards and pasted them with colored paint, changing the numbers on the cards into threes.
Actually, Walter’s move was a little risky. He had to make sure that Oliver wouldn’t get the same card as him.,
If there were the same cards, it was obvious that someone was cheating.
Walter’s card would be found out as long as they were checked.
That was why Walter asked for machine shuffling so that Oliver had a lower chance of getting threes.
Originally, Walter had a pretty good chance of winning by getting nine points, but he had to take the risk and cheat in order to make sure he could win.
The thing he was wearing didn’t have an electronic chip. It was all glue, so it couldn’t be detected by the instrument. This was also Walter’s trump card. If he had won, there was no need to use this move, but since he lost the previous rounds, he must use it.
And he did lose the first three rounds, so he didn’t have a choice.
Oliver sighed and beckoned Denise to translate to Walter. “Mr. Walter, before we get started, I want to tell you something. It is said that there is a new color-coated material that can be installed in ultra-thin skin-color gloves without any visible flaws. Have you ever seen it, Mr. Walter?”
Walter’s face changed instantly. He stared at Oliver blankly and thought, “Is he talking about me?”
