Betting using sugar canes

In my earlier I mentioned that I went with my father to side of the temple to sell things to people who gambled there. These people even used sugar canes to bet.

Two of the people would bet on whose sugar cane has the longest strand in the middle after being snapped. The loser will pay for the winner's sugar cane. My father or I would cut half way down in the middle of the sugar cane. Then each of them would snap his own sugar cane. After that they would compare the strand that stood out in the middle of the sugar canes to determine who won.
