"I have won."
In this chapter, the gambling begins, the first throw of the dice sees Shakuni winning. Before that, however, Yudhishtra appeals for a fair game of dice, expresses surprise that Shakuni will be rolling the dice, even though it is Duryodhana who will decide the stakes, and finally, stakes a "chain of gems, inlaid in supreme gold"

I have read this chapter from Vol.2 of Bibek Debroy's translation of the unabridged Mahabharata. You can find my review of the volume here.
