Chapter 2242: Fight the Landlord (3)
He shuffled the cards like an old hand, and this time around, his brother-in-law was the one who stacked the cards on the table as he stated coldly, “Everyone will get their cards this time!” It was obvious that he suspected his brother-in-law of cheating in the first game.
When Yun Shishi first brought up her suspicion, she was merely joking. Her husband, though, thought otherwise. The man did not believe that a person could be so lucky with his cards.
His brother-in-law had cheated.
Earlier, he had noticed something fishy with the way Gong Jie dealt the cards upon close observation, and he was not wrong to suspect the young chap actually. In reality, the latter was a regular at casinos and apt at such card games, even cheating. His dynamic vision was top-notch and comparable to Little Yichen. He could remember the cards and the sequences he dealt with just a quick look. From there, as he reshuffled the cards, he could skillfully arrange them in the order that he wanted, thereby giving the ace cards to his teammates.
Seeking Youyou as his partner-in-crime might seem coincidental to the rest, but in truth, he had purposely chosen his nephew. He knew the ace cards the boy had in his hands. His nephew could see through his act but still played along with him.
Unfortunately, they could not hide this for long before the host, who was also an experienced player in this type of game. The man did not pay close attention when his brother-in-law distributed the cards, and that was a mistake. If he had bothered to look carefully, the young man would not have had a chance to play his tricks.
Of course, his wife’s brother was not ashamed in the slightest. What of him being suspected of cheating? As long as he was not caught red-handed, it would not count.
Nevertheless, now that Mu Yazhe was on high alert, he knew he could not afford to play the same trick again.
Still, with my skills and capability, I can win the game without resorting to trickery. Hmph!
I can’t lose!
All I did a while ago was make him do a set of push-ups with weight, yet he can’t wait to finish me off now. Goodness knows what he’ll do to me if he won!
The young man could not imagine what kind of torture his brother-in-law would give him if he lost. Hence, everyone was on high alert when the next game began.
Hua Jin, especially, did not wish to end up as collateral damage in this ‘family feud’. He had merely tugged along for fun and was not prepared for any serious repercussions.
Meanwhile, the protagonist was in jittery, too.
Her mind was still filled with the image of her husband doing push-ups with her on his back. If she were the one doing that, she doubted she could last even one push-up. All she knew was that, regardless if she ended up in a team, neither should become a liability.
Thus, by the time the second game started, the aura emanating from the two at odds had changed drastically. Both were so bent on winning that it seemed they would kill anyone who got in their way!
The only child in the room was not worried, though. He was a neutral party in this game where it made no difference whether he was friend or foe to one side or the other. Hence, he was not afraid of either one coming after him.
Hua Jin rolled in the next game as the apparent ‘landlord’. After picking his cards, he noted that he got two Jokers with him. This upper hand told him that he should seek a strong ally, so he flashed one of the Jokers in his hand onto the table. The party who had an identical card would be the hidden ‘landlord’.
The cards he picked were not that good, so he could only bank on the hope that his hidden partner would help him. He trusted that the one with a similar ace card should mean something good.
As the ‘landlords’, having two ace cards had an obvious advantage. An ace would mean an added chance to play the cards. Moreover, it also meant that they could try to sniff out the bomb cards from the other camp.
