    Re: Liar Game Liar Game Chapter 161 Discussion/162 Prediction

    Now I'm REALLY curious to see how Akiyama will manage to win this...
    It really does seem hopeless.

    Although, I guess all of those "casualties" where so that Kawai could win their trust.
    In the end, he will probably lie to them and cause them to make a huge mistake.

    I think this was made to ensure that they would value Kawai's info and would only spend 1 more coins than what he said.
    That's why it was shown that they started by bidding 10 more coins, then less and less, until they only bid 1 more coin.

    It's probably because Akiyama has a plan, but it wouldn't work if they were ready to bid all their coins, so he needed a way for them to bid fewer coins.
    Or something like that...


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Well I think Kaitani should have showed them getting tricked by Kawai in this chapter, since this way we get zero progress, an ending page that might imply Akiyama has something planned, but I think Kaitani should hurry a bit. Plus the most interesting thing was Kimura actually being the focus while Harimoto it seems has totally faded away.

    I suppose whatever happens, it'll have the added bonus of Kimura's group pissing off basically everyone.

    I disagree that we got zero progress in this chapter. In fact, Kimura just fell for Akiyama's plan hook, line and sinker, allowing Akiyama's team to make a profit of 81 + 85 + 89 + 102 - 150 = 202 coins this round. To see where this number comes from, observe that between Taninaka, Shimoharada, Saeki and Yasukawa, they still have the 2, 9, J, A of clubs, 3, 5, 6, J, Q of diamonds, 2, 6, 7, 8, 10, A of hearts, and 9, Q of spades, which is enough to form 2 flushes and a one pair. (They also have enough rounds to make the necessarily exchanges.) Kimura's plan to outbid them for cards is only worth it if she can make all 4 of them end up as pigs, but the truth is that so far she's only guaranteed one pig while paying 357 coins for it. (I'm pretty sure that Akiyama's team has a contract signed somewhere...)

    I'm not sure what's up with the enormous focus on Kimura slowly lowering by how much she overbids, though...

    Well, they do have the cards to form flushes but do they have the means to realize them? So far she has stopped people from even forming pairs. Could their plan be to make kimura have little money for when they actually try to make those flushes? Of course it is only through those flushes that they can win at all and to form them they need enough rounds to leave kimura with little money so that when they actually bid for them they can win. Of course, without those hands it wouldn't matter if kimura just spent 200 mil as she would get the money from having less people not being pigs.

    We already noted that Taninaka, Shimoharada, Saeki and Yasukawa already have the ability to form pairs if they wanted to - they just have to bid at least 150 coins each time, which is possible if they exchange cards in the right order; this would ensure that it wouldn't be worthwhile for Kimura to outbid them. That being the case, they definitely have the ability to form ranked hands in a similar fashion (my emphasis wasn't so much on the exact value of the hands, but rather that the hands could be ranked). My view is that they just haven't formed ranked hands yet because this way they can get Kimura to shell out even more coins.
