Qingfeng, Xue Lin, Yunchang Xu arrived at the hall. They found a spot and sat down. Since they were participating in the competition later, they took the time to rest.

Of course, since they represented Eastern Sea city, they did not get good seats. They were assigned last row seats by Feiyan Liu.

Feiyan Liu assigned these seats as a small revenge against Qingfeng.

"Qingfeng, are you confident in winning?" Xue Lin furrowed her brows in worry.

She had already made a bet with Ruyan Liu. Her goal was to become the richest woman in the city one year later. For her to achieve the goal, she had to expand the company.

The company had met an obstacle now that Feiyan Liu refused to form a partnership with the company. If Qingfeng lost today, the reputation of the Ice Snow Corporation would be severely tarnished.

Qingfeng naturally knew of Xue Lin's worries. He said with a smile, "Don't worry, these people are no match for me."

"Qingfeng, be careful. These people have all spent many years in the field. They are all experts," Yunchang Xu said.

Last year, Yunchang Xu had lost to Feiyan Liu. He was naturally aware of how strong she was.

"Director Xu, don't worry. I am confident that I will win first place," Qingfeng said confidently.

The time passed quickly. In the blink of an eye, it was 8 am. The Antique Competition had officially begun.

There were three rounds in the Antique Competition. The rules of the competition were the same as the competition in Eastern Sea City. The first round was a 'Theory exam'. In the second round, the participants would take out an antique for the opponent to authenticate. In the third round, the judges would take out antiques for all the participants to authenticate.

There was a buzzer in front of all the participants. Whoever pressed the bell first would have the chance to answer the question.

There were three judges. They were all influential members of the antique community and experts in the field.

The MC of the competition was an elder in his seventies. His name was Lei Tang. Even though he was old, he was still very healthy. He wore a green Tang costume.

"Hi everyone, my name is Lei Tang. I will be overseeing the competition. There are 300 participants in the competition. Next, we will start the theory exam," Lei Tang said loudly.

His voice was loud and clear. Everyone in the hall heard his voice.

A fighter? He was skilled in martial arts?

Qingfeng was dazed for a moment. He could tell from Lei Tang's voice that he was not an ordinary person. The elder must be a fighter.

"The first question. Throughout history, what are the number one antiques," Lei Tang said.

Ring!

Qingfeng quickly pressed the buzzer.

"Participant #300, Qingfeng Li, please answer," Lei Tang looked at Qingfeng in astonishment. Clearly, he did not expect Qingfeng to be the first to answer the question.

Feiyan Liu and Changqing Li both looked at Qingfeng darkly. They were very upset. They also pressed the bells but they were too slow. Qingfeng was too fast. They could not compete with him.

Qingfeng smiled faintly and said, "There are many categories of antiques. But there is only one number one in each category. Among the bronze antiques, the number one antique is the 'Maogong pot'. The number one painting is the 'Sunshine Before Snow' by Xizhi Wang. The number one historical piece is the Copper horse carriage of the Qin Emperor. The first antique painting is 'Along the River During the Qingming Festival'.

Qingfeng quickly recited the names of the various antiques.

"That's correct. Mr. Qingfeng gets 10 points," Lei Tang looked at Qingfeng approvingly.

Qingfeng's answer was not only accurate. His speed was extremely fast without hesitation. Clearly, he had a deep understanding of antiques or his speed would not be so fast.

"The second question is which antiques do men prefer? Which antiques do women prefer? What are the representative antiques," Lei Tang asked loudly. His voice traveled through the entire hall.

Ring!

Qingfeng once again was the first to press the buzzer.

Shoot, this fellow's speed is so fast. Is he human? The surrounding people looked at Qingfeng with astonishment.

Qingfeng would press the buzzer just after Lei Tang had just finished speaking. His speed was fast like lightning.

Qingfeng smiled proudly when he saw the surrounding people. These stupid people wanted to challenge his speed. They were not on the same level.

"Men prefer jade, ceramics and swords. The representative piece is the jade burial suit. Women are more prone to enjoy glowing pearls, gold hair pieces, vases etc. The representative piece is the glowing pearl of Imperial Concubine," Qingfeng answered with a slight smile.

"The answer is correct. Qingfeng gets another 10 points. He is currently number one," Lei tang said loudly as a flash of surprise crossed his eyes.

From Qingfeng's answer, Lei Tang realized that Qingfeng had a deep understanding of Antiques. He did not need to think about his answers. This meant that these questions were extremely easy for him.

Feiyan Liu and Changqing Li exchanged glances. They could see the seriousness in each other's eyes. Qingfeng was a true expert.

If Feiyan Liu looked down at Qingfeng in the past, she treated him more seriously now. Not many people could answer two of Lei Tang's questions.

As for the other opponents, they looked at Qingfeng with dissatisfaction on their faces. Qingfeng had answered two questions in a row and did not give them any chances.

Qingfeng chose to ignore the looks of dissatisfactions. His goal was to become number one. To put it bluntly, these people were all his opponents.

Since they were his opponents, Qingfeng did not go easy on them. He could only drive them to the ground.

Lei Tang then asked the third question, then the fourth question…

When Lei Tang finished asking 20 questions. He finally stopped. He said, "Qingfeng, don't answer any more questions. You have already obtained 200 points. No one is your opponent."

One would get 10 points for answering a question correctly. Lei Tang had asked 20 questions which totaled 200 points. The questions were all answered correctly by Qingfeng.

If this continued, there do not have to be an Antique Competition. They should just announce Qingfeng as the winner. No one could match his speed or rival his knowledge of antiques.

"You mean that I am the number one in this round?" Qingfeng asked with a slight smile.


Lei Tang nodded and said, "Yes, I announce you as the winner of this round. You only need to wait for the second round."

Qingfeng smiled lightly when he heard that he was the winner of the first round. He then walked down the battle arena, towards Xue Lin.
