Chapter 1052 - Pay on Time
Lu Huaiyu’s gaze swept across the arena and he nodded.
“I’m of the same opinion as you.”
Gu Tinglan was no longer surprised by this. Whenever the two of them bet in the final rounds, their choices were always astonishingly identical.
He had even silently agreed that if Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li had the same opinion, that meant that the outcome would basically have been decided.
Shen Li’s lips curled into a smile.
“Then shall I bet on Number Three to win alone?”
As she spoke, she took out her phone.
Yu Pingchuan suddenly said, “Wait, are you guys sure you’re all optimistic about Number Three? What about Number Four? I think he’s pretty good too!”
He had not said much before this, but today was the last day of the competition. Moreover, this was the final round, so he really could not hold it in any longer.
Gu Tinglan said, “Actually, I also think that Number Four has a higher chance of winning.”
Seeing that Gu Tinglan was on his side, Yu Pingchuan suddenly felt more confident. He looked at the two of them expectantly.
Shen Li was silent for a moment.
“I think Number Four… has a higher chance of winning second place.”
Hearing this, Lu Huaiyu tilted his head and looked over, his brows slightly raised.
The young lady’s judgment was quite accurate, especially during the final rounds.
Yu Pingchuan immediately hesitated again.
On one hand, he felt that since Lu Huaiyu and Shen Li both thought Number Three was good, they should not be wrong. On the other hand, there was this constant voice in his heart telling him that Number Four might have a better chance of winning the championship.
He was not the only one who was conflicted.
Gu Siyang was also at a loss.
“Why is no one picking Number Eight?”
Number Eight was the one he favored the most!
As soon as he said this, the private room fell silent for a moment.
Gu Tinglan turned to look at him and said calmly, “Siyang, if you really have nothing to do, go and tow your car over to get it washed again. After all, you probably won’t be able to buy a new car for a long time after that. You should cherish driving it.”
Gu Siyang was at a loss for words.
Indignantly, he looked at Lu Huaiyu.
“Second Master Lu, what do you think? Number Eight isn’t that bad, right? It has a very pure bloodline! It has also performed well in the other horse races and won first place!”
Lu Huaiyu had already won all the bets he had placed, so Gu Siyang already considered him a god in his heart.
That was why he wanted to ask for Lu Huaiyu’s opinion.
Lu Huaiyu looked at the field, tilted his head slightly, and said, “Number Eight? If it performs well, there’s still some hope of getting third place.”
Gu Siyang was flabbergasted.
His face fell.
Wasn’t this too much of a blow?
Even if it performed well, at most, it would only get third place?
Hearing this, Shen Li raised her eyes slightly and glanced at Lu Huaiyu.
She actually felt the same in her heart, but other than Number Eight, she felt that Number Seven also had a chance of getting third place.
Gu Siyang’s rebellious thoughts came up.
“Forget it! I’ll bet on Number Eight!”
The more people did not think highly of Number Eight, the more likely it would become the dark horse this time!
Yu Pingchuan had originally wanted to follow along with Shen Li and Lu Huaiyu’s opinions, but after seeing Gu Siyang’s reaction, his heart wavered.
After thinking for a long time, he finally said, “Then I’ll bet on Number Four!”
Seeing how stubborn these two were, Shen Li did not try to persuade them otherwise.
When it came to gambling, people tended to be more impulsive and stubborn.
If they had already made up their minds, then no matter how hard anyone tried to persuade them otherwise, it would be useless.
She had a deep understanding of this point.
So now, she would not try to do such a useless thing.
In any case, only when one suffered a loss could one learn a lesson.
Thinking of this, her eyes narrowed as she looked at her phone again.
Earlier, she had already finished placing her bets.
Now, all she had to do was wait–
“Miss Ah Li, Fifth Master, a total of six SSS-level members have participated in the final round of betting today.”
The staff member beside her reported respectfully.
Shen Li looked over.
“Who are they?”
The staff member read out six names one after another.
“… The fifth person, Gambler, has invested all of the capital and bonuses from the previous two rounds. The sixth person, Saint, has placed a bet of ten million US dollars.”
Hearing the last name, Shen Li’s eyes narrowed slightly.
They had finally come.
Gu Tinglan was the first to laugh.
“Interesting. It’s fine if Gambler is the same as last year, but I didn’t expect this person to be the same.”
These two were the ones who had earned the most at the horse race event the previous year. He had thought that it would be good enough to have one Gambler this year, but who could have known that Saint would come as well?
“If I didn’t know any better, I’d think that these two were in cahoots with each other.”
As Gu Tinglan spoke, he looked at the horse race that was already in position on the field and said with great interest,
“I’m a little curious now, which of these two will win more in the end.”
Just as he finished speaking, a voice sounded from the field!
The final round… had officially begun!
Shen Li picked up the binoculars from the table.
Shen Zhijin looked at her and saw that half of Shen Li’s face was blocked, only revealing her smooth and beautiful jawline and sharp chin.
His cold and indifferent eyes were tinged with warmth.
Seeing Shen Li’s actions, Gu Tinglan was surprised and teased with a smile,”It looks like Ah Li really values this match.”
The corners of Shen Li’s lips curved into a faint smile.
“Well, after all, this is the last race of this year’s horse race.”
Gu Tinglan nodded in agreement.
That was true.
Shen Li was in charge of this year’s horse racing event, so naturally, she paid more attention to these things.
“Actually, this year’s horse racing event has been very exciting. Didn’t your father and mother praise it before?”
In the past few days, the whole Gu family had been praising Shen Li on this matter.
Shen Li put down the binoculars and looked at Gu Tinglan.
“Actually, it’s all thanks to my little uncle’s help this time.”
If not, many things would have been really troublesome for her to deal with.
Gu Tinglan shook her head and smiled.
“You’ve always been smart. You’re able of learning as soon as you’re taught. In the end, it’s still you who’s done well.”
What Shen Li lacked was experience.
In fact, after interacting with him during this period of time, he realized that Shen Li’s talent was not only reflected in physics and painting.
Smart people tended to be more efficient in whatever they did.
This was reflected vividly in Shen Li.
Yu Pingchuan’s anxious shout suddenly came, interrupting the conversation between the two.
He had unknowingly rushed to the railing and was staring intently at the match. Number Four had constantly been in second place, and there had been a constant gap between Number Three and Number Four.
It was no wonder he was so anxious.
Apart from him, Gu Siyang was also panicking.
“Number Eight! What’s wrong with Number Eight?”
Before the match, he had clearly looked like he could run! Now that two-thirds of the match had passed, he was still in fourth place!
Gu Tinglan reminded him,”Siyang, no matter how much you shout, you can’t run on its behalf.”
Gu Siyang choked for a moment, then became excited again.
“Look! It’s overtaking! It’s overtaking! It’s now in third place!”
However, this kind of joy could not last for too long, because after Number Eight reached third place, it could not catch up no matter what.
After Number Eight had reached third place, Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips curled up very lightly as he replied to Cheng Xiyue with a message.
[ I hope that after this match ends, that person can repay the third part of their debt on time. ]
