Chapter 482: Duel. 

After talking about the investment for nearly half an hour, both parties finally signed a contract respectively, which was regarded as a long-term cooperative partnership.

"Come, Sabrina and Miss Demi, let's toast to our long-term cooperation.  For the future!"

Leon stood up, raised his glass, and blatantly ignored Xiao Luo.  This was to make Xiao Luo subconsciously stand up and raise his glass with them before realizing that he wasn’t invited, thus, falling into an embarrassing situation.

This was a celebration after their cooperative relationship had been formed.  However, Su Li did not feel good at this time because Leon deliberately embarrassed Xiao Luo, nonetheless, she stood up and clinked glasses with Leon just because she was obligated to.

Shen Qingyan also stood up, and the three clinked their glasses.


Leon glanced at Xiao Luo, who was still eating, looked up and drank the wine in the glass. 

He did not forget to comment about Xiao Luo, A dead pig who's ignorant about an elegant meal!

"We should go."

Su Li didn’t want to stay here a moment longer. She had been feeling this whole time that Xiao Luo was not himself today.

"It's still early, so don't worry about going back. There is an underground casino in this hotel. Sabrina, let's go and play together. How about taking the chance?" Leon suggested.

"Not interested!"

Su Li responded coldly and looked at Xiao Lu, who was still eating. She said with a little anger, "Xiao Luo, let's go."

Xiao Luo threw away a leftover bone, wiped off grease on his hands and mouth with a paper towel.  He stood up and looked at Leon, then suddenly asked, "Is there a casino here?"

"Yes, there is." Leon was stunned for a bit before laughingly replied.

"As far as I know, casinos are not allowed in Xia Hai." Xiao Luo showed great interest.

Leon replied, "That's why it's an underground casino. It's said that the boss of this resort hotel has some connections so the police have turned a blind eye to this place.

The casino here has been open for five to six years now and nothing has happened even to this day."

"Do you want to play?" Su Li asked Xiao Luo softly.

"I want to have some fun." Xiao Luo replied.

"Since Mr. Xiao wants to play, Sabrina, as his wife, you should be generous and not tighten the reins in your hands too tightly."

Leon had a smile on his face. "How about this?  In order to avoid being too noisy, I'll open a private room and let's have fun, just the four of us."

"Good idea!"

Xiao Luo gave Leon a thumbs-up and praised him in English. This Leon made him very upset, so he must make Leon even more upset.

"Yeah Yeah, Mr. Xiao's English is very good." Leon had a pondering smile and also praised Xiao Luo. But within the depth of his eyes were cold indifference. He was determined to make Xiao Luo lose miserably, and also lose face in front of Su Li.

"Li, a duel for you has begun." Shen Qingyan whispered in Su Li's ear.

Su Li didn't know whether she should feel happy or angry... This was clearly Leon's trap so why did Xiao Luo still jump in? But Xiao Luo's behavior today was indeed really abnormal. Is it really because he is jealous?



Soon, the group relocated to the casino level of the hotel.

The casino was set on the first floor. It was human nature to gamble so many people came here to gamble. Xiao Luo felt like he had returned to the casino of Dragon Gang back in Jiang City.

"You need to exchange more than 20 million gambling coins to be eligible for an exclusive room. Sabrina, I will exchange first." Leon strode towards the counter.

Twenty million!

This could only be regarded as a small gamble for people like Su Li and Shen Qingyan, but in Leon's view, Xiao Luo shouldn't have 20 million, so it was just perfect.

"Do you really want to play?" Su Li wanted to confirm it again.

"Hmm." Xiao Luo nodded.

"Do you have that much money?"

"There are so many cards on my body." Xiao Luo said, and stepped to the counter.

"Wait." Su Li stopped him.

"What's the matter?"

"It's still not too late to stop.  Leon's family in North America owns a casino. In terms of gambling, we definitely have no chance of winning against him. Twenty million is a big sum for you. Don't lose it just because of impulsive actions." Su Li said out of concern

"She's right, Xiao Luo, it is not easy for you to get a big order. If you lose all your commission at once, you will regret it."

Shen Qingyan also advised, "I know you want to compete with Leon because of Li, but it is really unnecessary."

"It's nothing, it's just for fun. Besides, I 'may' not necessarily lose. "Xiao Luo smiled.

"Why are you so stubborn?!"

Su Li was angry. Why do you have to bet with a casino master like Leon? What's the difference between this and handing out money to others?

Xiao Luo didn't say a word, he just walked straight to the cashier to change currency for gambling money.

"Forget it, let him. It's a duel between men. We'll just help foil it later." Shen Qingyan sighed.

Su Li was frowning, she said with great anxiety, "But if he lost all 20 million to Leon, it wouldn't be very..."

"From what I know about that guy, he always surprises people." Shen Qingyan laughed.



Bright lights were everywhere.  There was also a high-grade gambling table surrounded by drinks

This was an exclusive room for the guests in the casino. When the door of this room was closed, the noise from the outside was completely isolated. It was just as quiet as a lake in the high mountains. The casino also specially equipped this room with a licensing division.

"Poker, should Mr. Xiao play this?" Leon deliberately asked Xiao Luo, he clearly regarded Xiao Luo as a bumpkin.

"Its popular name should be Fried Golden Flowers." Xiao Luo coldly replied .

Leon was stunned, and then he smiled. "Hehehe ... Mr. Xiao is really a man of temperament, yes, that's what you Chinese call poker."

But in his heart, he was saying, "Bumpkin, you dare get your hands on my Sabrina. You're overreaching!”

"Then don't say more, and just play." Xiao Luo smiled.


Leon motioned for the dealer to start.

The dealer nodded, took out a brand-new deck of playing cards, and after taking it out of the box, he habitually showed it to the four people at the table to prove that his deck had not been tampered with.

After dealing three cards, and a card to each person, the dealer introduced the rules: "The bottom gold is 100,000, and each price increase should not be less than 500,000. I ask Mr. Leon, who has a big card, to speak first."

All three cards could be seen, except for one card that was face down.

Leon has a pair of Ace of spades, a 6 of spades and a 6 of Clubs. 

"One million!" Leon easily threw out the gambling coins of the same value.

Xiao Luo looked at his own cards; 7, 8, 9, which was small. As for Su Li and Shen Qingyan, there was no need to look at theirs.

In addition to measuring a person’s ‘poker’ face, poker also showcased courage and boldness, and vision. This was its charm.

"I fold!" Shen Qingyan said.

Su Li was just about to play one hand, when Leon urged, "Sabrina, I'm not a pair of sixes, I'm a pair of sixes and a pair of Ace. Your cards are too small, so don't play this round. I'm telling this for your own good."
