One Poker Hen 149

If  a King is a Tank and an Ace is a battleship or something, I wonder what a Deuce is, that can lose to everything but can kill an Ace? A rat that gets stuck in the engine? ONE POKER CONTINUES!

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

Chapter Link

"A TANK IS INVINCIBLE!"

Invincible? Strong words for an iron bug crawling on the ground. Easily plucked by the steel Pegasus of the sky. 

Kaiji will fall. This is an inevitability that cannot be stopped. As Kazuya said, once the seat belts lock in place, there is no going back. No stopping Mother Sophie. Most likely, he wasn't just saying that for Kaiji, but also for himself. Kaiji will reverse and be flipped upside down. The belt will release. Kaiji will fall.

  1. chang you absolutely piece of shit

    now he definitely has to bet his own life too.

    i hate this so much, now there'll be like 3 chapters of nothing but yelling again and absolutely no progress done.

    1. My thoughts exactly. I love all of fukumoto's mangas but being up to date with one is a waiting nightmare. I'm blaming the pasing, not the translators! You guys are awesome

  2. Predictable, but curious what happens from now. Can only imagine kaiji's absolute horror of realising he just talked himself into losing......again. But for his own life!

  3. What many of us thought would happen.
    I think now Kaiji will survive (hopefully it'll be an interesting mini-arc) and they are absolutely going to ask Kazuya for a chance to bet Chang's and Mario's lives. However, what's truly interesting is what's about to come next... I wonder how things will play out, since it would be too obvious to just have Kaiji figure out the game and win more and more. Maybe Kaiji will now win Mother Sofie's "favor" and will be the one being dealt aces.

    Good stuff overall, and as always thank you so much for these releases!

    1. I doubt it. By the way the manga is, there is no way Chang would bet his own life to save Kaiji.
      It would be a deja-vu from the "Espoir" arc.
      Would also be terrifying for Kaiji, if he survives after the near-death experience, just to figure out that he can't trust anyone... Again...

  4. Pls translate 10 chapters a day, OK? That's realistic, right?

  5. Anyone have a link to the Raws?

    1. Depends if you use torrents. If you do, go to nyaa.se there are raw volumes there up to Volume 12, I think. That's where I got the raw version. Sadly, I cannot read kanji so I have to wait for these awesome translations.

  6. Oh cmon, this is bullshit... chang was absolutly right there, kazuya is a luck cheater, it's totally unrealistic he gets 4 aces and kaiji 3 two on their first attempt. His grandfather has won thx to his brain, not for a stream of infinite luck, and if they keep to play what will he do with his two? there are no more aces

    1. Actually they are using many decks shuffled together, so more aces can still come.

      Thanks for the translations!

    2. Yup in theory there can be 12 aces!

  7. In a way I really hope there's not an option for Chang to take the fall instead, or for Kaiji to use multiple red lives in general. At the same time though, I can't imagine any other way that Kaiji would survive at this point. Here's to hoping Fukumoto does something unexpected next chapter.

    1. There is the safety net. And if Kaiji still has his life after falling the young master may let him bet his life again. Which would be risky because now his only card is a 2

      Delete
    2. I highly doubt that Kaiji would survive the fall with a 1/8th chance. Kazuya's book made a notable point in saying that although the girl had a 5/6th chance of surviving the sword, it was her complete reliance on luck that really killed her, and as we know, Kaiji fails catastrophically when he relies completely on luck. It's much more likely that he'll find some alternative path that is unknown to the viewer. Though, Kazuya DID get 4 pocket aces, so it's not completely out of the question.

    3. If you're referring to how Arisa was "punished", that was for being an unloving, murderous cunt, not for relying on luck. That was her stated true cause of death. The Boss specifically said she probably wouldn't die with those odds.

      Delete
    4. Getting stabbed by the sword wasn't even her choice and she was terriefied anyway, so you're remembering it as wrong as possible.

      Delete
    5. In the story, Arisa and her runaway boyfriend were pitted against each other. If Arisa had chosen to take the same risks as her boyfriend, she may have survived.

      It was her malice and selfishness that made her boyfriend decide to use the final sword on her instead of himself, even though he would have bleed out and died anyway. She tried to kill him in the end so she could survive. That was her fatal flaw.

  8. 4 pocket Aces, come on, he has to be cheating at this point.

  9. I'm sure he cheats, Hyoudou should punish his cheating brat

    1. Hyoudou cheated too. I dont want to post spoilers but. He is fine with cheating as long as you dont lose

      Delete
    2. what? are you saying this is uncovered later on?

      Delete
    3. Well, that looks plausible. Deja-vu from the underground arc, where the boss cheated?

  10. Hi, FKMTkrazy. Long time reader, first time commenter here. I have a couple questions I've been meaning to ask.

    1. Is One Poker Hen gonna be 13 volumes long?
    2. Any news on Kurosawa? I remember you caught up to ongoing, but has it been coming out in Japan?

    Anyway, thank you so much for your translations! You're heroes to at least three anons from Minsk, Belarus, here, so I would imagine there must be a much more "silent" fans across the globe than you would infer just from the comments section here!

  11. Thanks for the amazing scans and translations, it's usually one of the regular highlights of my week. I'm hoping kaiji survives this. From a Nigerian fan.
