One Poker-Hen 113

Kaiji and Kazuya's Legendary Battle continues! Funny little fact about Kazuya's name, if you rearrange the letters, you spell Yakuza!

Thanks to Sonickrazy for the translations and to Crump Biggums for the cleans.

One Poker-Hen 113

"He had worked out the truth of the situation!"

Three times! Kaiji hits his stride and takes home a third life! The totals are now Kazuya - 7 Kaiji - 5. Things are actually looking quite hopeful for Kaiji now. He's almost even with Kazuya in lives. One more win and he will be dead even with Kazuya. It took a bit for the third card to be revealed, but now we finally see the whole picture for the game as it stands from beginning to now. Kazuya started out with the fiendish Ace Ace hand. A hand that by all regards would be considered the best hand in One Poker. Kaiji started with 2, 4. Arguably one of the worst hands you could start with.

As things progress Kazuya gets a 3 and Kaiji gets a 2 as their first single draws. Kazuya then draws a 6 and Kaiji draws a Queen. Kaiji figures out that there's no reason for Kazuya to play an Ace against a DOWN DOWN unless he really had no choice in the matter, making him believe Kazuya started off with 2 Aces. Believing this he played his last 2. This paid off big time as his interpretation of the situation was 100% correct! Kazuya made that grimace because he was worried about the eventual outcome if Kaiji lost both times to a pair of Aces. Anyone looking at the situation woudl say Kazuya cheated. Kazuya, looking for a fair game, saw this outcome and grimaced at the thought of it, giving Kaiji a clue.

In the end though, all I'm concerned about are those rails. What kind of train has Kazuya boarded today? Is it the Sunny Express bound for Happyland? I think it is!

  1. Kaiji's logic and reasoning skills are too OP. He'd win the next round with his queen to make the game even, unless Kazuya gets a king.

    Things are getting interesting! However, eventually something will ruin Kaiji's flow, Kazuya will have something up his sleeve.

  2. It's really nice to see Kaiji making good logical choices. He usally only does them when he realizes they are cheating.
    Also I think that you have to offer a life when you lose 3 times in a row. Because else you will fall from the building. So maby it's even already.

    1. Not sure what you mean, but you have to offer however many lives you bet in the round each time you lose. There hasn't been a raise yet, so it's -3 for Kazuya and +3 for Kaiji, i.e. 7 vs 5, almost even.

  3. Rhetorical Question!

    Why THE FUCK Didn't Kaiji raise on this hand?

    Answer- Because FKMT has the numbers planned out to allow the most extreme of gambles as things progress.

    But That isn't a damn answer!

    1. That's how I see it.
      Kazuya probably figured out that Kaiji knows that his up-up cards were 2 Aces.
      By raising, he will just tell Kaiji he played the Ace, and Kaiji will normaly fold, so the same result will end up to Kazuya; winning 1 figure. But if Kaiji actually has a 2, Kazuya's completely screwed.
      In short, in Kazuya's mind "Raising will bring me no benefits, and has a very slight chance to fu#$ me over."
      That just shows how cautious he was unlike the first turn.

    2. I do believe that was what he was afraid of?
