Gambling Time is chapter 20 of Hunter x Hunter.
Leorio wants to go check if Majitani is dead but a female prisoner challenges him to a betting game using time. The total amount each side can bet is 50 hours and the minimum wager is 10 hours. He accepts and bets 10 hours on Majitani being alive, which he wins. The prisoner then bets 20 hours that Majitani is really unconscious. It turns out Majitani is playing possum to stall the applicants. To determine Majitani's state, Leorio brings him to the edge of the platform and threatens to drop him into the abyss. Seeing that, the prisoner changes her bet to 40 hours for Majitani being conscious. Right afterwards, Majitani stops feigning unconsciousness and admits defeat. With this, the score is 2 - 1 in favor of the applicants but they only have 20 hours left to wager.
The prisoner then takes off her hood and challenges Leorio to bet on her gender. He accepts and bets 10 hours that she is male. The prisoner lets him feel her body to confirm and he happily loses. With the last 10 hours, he then challenges her to a round of rock-paper-scissors. To bluff and mess with Leorio's mind, she says that if he wins he will get 80 hours instead of just 10. This puts a lot of pressure on him and he easily loses.
