The Bet by Anoton Chekhov

The "end" of the story begins after the jurist leaves his confinement in "The Bet" by Anton Chekhov...true or false?

  • The Bet by Anoton Chekhov -

    I believe it's false. Didn't the end begin with the letter he wrote the banker renouncing the money?

    I concur, false.
    I feel the end began with the end of the activities of the jurist being described, and the banker taking action.
