    Default Gwok Jing's three bets with Au Yeung Fung - out of character?

    When Gwok Jing made three bets with West Poison Au Yeung Fung that his Mongol troops could capture him alive three times, I felt that making these bets was way out of character for Gwok Jing. Those bets were uncharacteristically imaginative and provocative for Gwok Jing. They're something I expect Wong Yung to propose, but it came as quite a surprise to me when Gwok Jing independently proposed these bets.

    Default Out of character for Gwok Jing to make that bet with Au Yeung Fung?

    Gwok Jing made a bet with West Poison Au Yeung Fung that the soldiers under his (GJ's) command could capture AYF alive three times. While the strategies to actually capture AYF were devised by Wong Yung, the bet itself was made by Gwok Jing. I found this act a bit out-of-character for Gwok Jing. He doesn't strike me as a betting man...especially not the sort to initiate a bet with his mortal enemy.
