"WTF am I doing?"

Perfect line for a perfect chapter :D.

The fix is in. After Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji there's not been one straight game in the series. Chinchirorin, pachinko and mahjong were all rigged against our hero.

The way the cards were arranged was perfect for cheating. Kazuya doesn't want to win per se, he wants writing material for his weird books that serve to push his own ideas about people and gamblers. He set all the other hands predicting what a junky gambler would play. Now we as played an Ace and given the chance for Kaiji to win with a 2, and he thinks he will not play it. He believes in it like he said when he broke Kaiji's winning streak, which was only to get him drunk on gambling.

The end of his twisted tale would be perfect if the first two hand happened again, this time, even having the chance to win Kaiji “played it safe”.

Always remember the number on lesson his father told Kaiji: “The Mark of the King”. Play when you know you are going to win because you’re not playing the game (it’s rigged) but your opponent that accepted some stupid “rule” without realizing it was “the mark of the king” (Kazuya’s half of the deck was the only part not discarded by the machine, only Kaiji’s shuffled part which was on top).

It’s not even a gamble for Kazuya, it’s a plot for and of a book.

Calling it, he had a second 2, which Kaiji will tie with.

Even before this "one life statue" was introduced I predicted that Kaiji's friends' lives would end up as playing chips. I still think that's gonna happen.

 

Kazuya may verbally give him the option, but whether Kaiji picks "yes" or "no", I don't think Kazuya will actually let Kaiji bet his friends' lives (because "it's not programmed into Mother Sophie"). In this hypothetical scenario, he'll just want to see what Kaiji is willing to sink to to save his own life.

 

(and I personally imagine that Kaiji would say "no", because that's been his character all along)

Can he play once he 'falls'? You'll fall when you lose the Red Statue and that's the last thing you can bet.

 

unless there's an even more hidden white statue

Red Statue represents his life. So he can bet it again. Normally you wouldn't be able to since you're supposed to die from the fall.

He'll almost certainly choose that route. Kaiji will fall and save himself, and the betting will continue. Kaiji will win it all back and make Kazuya fall to his death because the flow reversed.

Well, the author just blew my previous conjecture out of the water.

 

Kaiji can super-lose and still survive.

 

I wonder if the author will actually choose that route....

I will be so hype if Kaiji manages to push Kazuya back after this, drops him down the shaft and Kazuya actually manages to survive due to his absurd luck.

He'll probably use it in the last round before he wins or something, thus forcing Kazuya to put in his own red life as well or fold.

 

This game can only end one of two ways: Kaiji leaves with no money and a 3 in his hand (if he has a 2 while broke... he'll bet it all on Kazuya playing another ace), or Kazuya leaves with no money and a high card in his hand (because he actually doesn't care about money and can get more by doing some random gamble with anyone else). Neither of them is going to die--Kaiji won't die because the final battle has to be against the chairman, and Kazuya won't die because he doesn't actually care about money as much as his own life.

 

And by the rules of Mother Sophie, you Cannot™ be "forced to use your red life or fold". Maybe you didn't understand how that works? If kaiji and kazuya both are all-in betting 6 lives and kaiji chooses to bet his red life, kazuya can simply say "nah, we're continuing this gamble on 6 lives only" and then they will reveal their cards. Just like in regular poker--if you bet more than the other person has, that doesn't mean the other person folds. It means they can only win up to the amount they bet (from each person still in the pool). Unless _each_ person actively chooses to use their red life, it's like that red life doesn't exist. Like, that's the entire reason the previous explanation chapter existed--otherwise, kazuya could just bet 2 lives next time, and 4 lives the time after if he loses, etc.

The reason Kaiji is so nonchalant about the falling thing is because he happened to put on his ring of feather falling earlier in the day.

Meh, knowing Kaiji, like hell he won't use the red life again

"Figured... it wouldn't be out of the question for you, Kaiji"

 

This guy knows a gambling addict when he sees one!

 

Still, we know Kaiji has to make his way out of this somehow or he'll never have the final showdown with papa.

 

(what we _don't_ know is how that final showdown will end. Kaiji could very well just die, knowing FKMT)

I saw it coming fro a mile away, but the execution was better than I could've hoped for.

Props to FKMTkrazy for the way they intelligently chunk releases when they can't do it weekly. They never undercut the tension or ruin a shock, they only enhance it. I was sweating.

Damn Kaiji got FUKED

I'm a bit disappointed in Kaiji so far. I understand that he shines when he is under pressure, and I get that it is easy to be overconfident, panicked, etc... but after his experience with E card, I really would expect Kaiji to be focusing more on Kazuya and less on Kazuya's cards.

i have read the first few chapters in one poker han, and i have a strong feeling where kazuya might "cheat"
let's get back to the cards shuffling, both shuffled the cards on the table, then kazuya cut the cards into two halves, asked kaiji to shuffle his half while kazuya shuffle the other half , this is where kazuya might have done something to his cards, rememebr he asked kaiji to put his half over kazuya's half, then he asked him t cut the cards , the top ones are discared (kaiji's half) and the bottom ones are played (kazuya's half)

and in case kaiji later on figured that kazuya cheated on the shuffle, he asked kaiji right away to swear that he'll accept what mother sophie give him, that sounds rediculous at first but it's a part of his plan.

after that he asked kaiji where he wan't to sit , that's irrelavnt , but gave kaiji the "right" to choose who pick the first card, but by simply mentionning "luck" to kaiji , kaiji automatically choose to be first, that might also be part of the cunning kazuya plan

so in the end it's not really "Mother Sophie" who choose who to "love" it's kazuya himself (he could have installed an automatic shuffler in "mother sophie" but he didn't)

Pretty funny how despite surviving so many gambles, kaiji has one of the worst poker faces ever, i mean literally crying in tears of joy after seeing your card kinda gives it away

End of vol 3. And to think there are like 10 more volumes of the same thing.

 

It's been a looooong night, Kaiji.

>mfw season 3 never ever

No it's in the rules of the game and it's been mentioned before. I personally think it's a stupid rule that makes calling meaningless but I guess Fukumoto wants it in One Poker.

It is a stupid rule, but I've heard it is common across Japanese variants of poker. Its like reversed string-betting. Even worse, some Japanese poker games won't allow a call unless you can cover the full amount raised. Proper scammy poker.
