Signing In For Eight Years, I Was Exposed As A Zillionaire!-Chapter 438 - Ingenious
He was such a young child. Even if he learned Go when he was six years old, it would only be two to three years until he was seven or eight years old. Meanwhile, he had played Go for decades. Not only was his arrangement of the chess game exquisite, but his control of the human heart was also outstanding.
However, he could not see through this seven or eight-year-old child in front of him!
Who exactly was he?!
When the national player thought of this, he instantly felt a chill in his heart and looked at Ye Xuan in surprise.
Just as he was about to ask, the CEOs pulled Ye Xuan and introduced him to the national player.
“Let me introduce you. This is the chairman of the famous Dinglong Corporation in China, Chairman Ye Xuan.”
“Chairman Ye, this is Li Min, one of the top national Go players in China.”
Ye Xuan nodded and reached out his small hand to shake National Player Li’s hand politely.
“I’ve heard a lot about you, sir. Now that I’ve seen you today, National Player Li’s chess skills are indeed worthy of their reputation.”
“No, no. It’s just an evaluation from an outsider. I only know a little about Go. I’m just here to entertain myself.”
National Player Li spoke humbly. While he was being polite, he was also deeply shocked by Ye Xuan’s identity.
He did not expect this half-grown child whom he could not see through to be Chairman Ye of the Dinglong Corporation.
No wonder he had such foresight and the overall situation.
It was really terrifying.
However, on second thought, since they had met today, it was also a rare kind of fate. In addition, this child’s chess skills were so outstanding. It would be a pity if they didn’t play a round on the chessboard.
Hence, he immediately probed Ye Xuan.
“Chairman Ye, it’s rare to see you today. I see that Chairman Ye is very proficient in Go. Why don’t we play a round?”
When Ye Xuan saw Liu Haikang and National Player Li. fighting just now, he was envious. Now, National Player Li had personally invited him.
Ye Xuan naturally had no reason to reject him.
Hence, he nodded and sat in the seat that Liu Haikang had vacated. He gestured to National Player Li and asked.
“Mr. Li, please. Will you take the black pieces?”
The black piece went first. The meaning of this sentence was to let National Player Li take a step forward, allowing him to go first.
When National Player Li heard this, he immediately smiled and was a little surprised by Ye Xuan’s arrogance.
In Go, those who dared to be arrogant were either first-grade chess masters or ignorant people.
Due to Ye Xuan’s shocking words about the three-move chess game, National Player Li naturally did not think that he was a fool.
On the contrary, since Ye Xuan had already said so, he didn’t hold back. He reached out and picked up a black piece before smiling.
“Then I won’t hold back.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he placed the black piece in the center of the chessboard.
It occupied this most important place.
Ye Xuan’s expression did not change. He picked up a white piece and placed it not far from the black piece.
In layman’s terms, in Go, it was like occupying territory during ancient wars.
At the beginning, each person would occupy a place and then use their troops to attack the other party’s territory.
The troops were his pawns, and he was the general who controlled the entire situation.
It was simple, but it was filled with mystery.
Just like that saying, the simplest thing was often filled with the highest level of wisdom.
It was like the saying that real wisdom was in accordance with natural tendencies.
This was the charm of Go
After the time it took to drink a cup of tea, the chess room was as quiet as a chicken.
The CEOs all held their breaths and focused. Their eyes were tightly focused on the chessboard, afraid that they would miss a step.
Their faces were filled with shock. Their expressions faintly turned pale in disbelief.
There was no other reason. It had clearly been ten minutes, but there were still only eight chess pieces on the chessboard.
Both sides had four pieces each, and now was the time for National Player Li to place his piece.
However, National Player Li frowned and his eyes wandered. There was a hint of confusion in the depths of his eyes.
The black piece in his hand did not fall for a long time. It lasted for the time it took to brew a cup of tea.
Meanwhile, Ye Xuan was leisurely sipping a large bowl of tea with a smile on his face. He was not bothered by the chess game at all.
He was also secretly happy in his heart. He placed the four white pieces in a place that others could not understand.
However, with National Players Li’s chess skills and thoughts about the next ten steps, it was not difficult to see what these four white pieces meant.
As long as time passed, the four black pieces he had placed and all his paths of survival would definitely be blocked or intercepted by these four white pieces. There would be no chance of survival.
This was also the reason why he could not place the black piece in his hand. No matter where he placed it, it was still under Ye Xuan’s control.
It could be seen from the first four moves.
Therefore, after hesitating for a while, National Player Li finally retracted his raised hand.
He cupped his hands at Ye Xuan and spoke.
“Chairman Ye, the old man admits defeat. These four moves are indeed a godsend. I’ve thought of 108 paths of survival in my mind, but I still can’t bypass the interception formed by these four white pieces.”
“I admit defeat in this game of chess. Chairman Ye is indeed powerful. How about we play another round?”
When everyone heard this, their faces were filled with surprise. They were stunned on the spot and could not say a word.
Their hearts surged like waves, and they were dumbfounded.
He was a dignified national player, but after only losing four pieces, he directly surrendered and admitted defeat!
If not for the fact that these CEOs were all people who knew chess, they would have seen through it.
Otherwise, they would really think that National Player Li deliberately went easy on Ye Xuan and admitted defeat because of his status.
At that moment, their evaluation of Ye Xuan’s chess skills increased. They looked at Ye Xuan with reverence.
Meanwhile, after hearing National Player Li’s words, Ye Xuan politely cupped his fists and spoke.
“Sir, thank you for letting me win.”
Then, he pursed his lips and smiled. He extended his hand and made a “please” gesture.
“Sir, please. I can take the white pieces.”
National Player Li nodded and did not hold back. Since Ye Xuan was fine with both black or white pieces, he definitely did not want to let go of this opportunity to seize the initiative. It was very meaningful.
Hence, he picked up a black chess piece and placed it in the center of the chessboard.
This time, he definitely didn’t plan to repeat the same mistake. He had gained more wisdom. He was prepared to use an unorthodox tactic to make Ye Xuan unable to see through him.
This tactic was also an extremely decisive tactic that he had developed during his decades of playing Go.
He had also used it once in the deciding round of the Go competition and successfully won the championship.
Later on, the officials even took the chess game back and stored it in the Chess Museum.
After so many years, and after reviewing more than ten thousand rounds, no one could use this complete strategy.
It was recognized as the God’s Scroll. Unless a god came, it was difficult to resolve this strategy that had a total of 81 killing intents. They were interconnected and were as exquisite as the Mohist’s mechanisms.
