Win some, lose some (Posted on 2014-11-03) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Peter strongly desired to attend a decisive football match in which his favorite team “Zenith” participated.
Alas, he had neither cash nor credit card.
Reluctantly, he decided to get rid of a souvenir “silver ruble coin”, which contained a 1000 ruble worth of silver.
He went to pawnshop, and in return for his coin got 750 rubles cash and a chit redeemable within a week for slightly more than the money he got.
Then he went to a friend – numismatist and, describing the silver dollar, offered him the chit for 750 rubles.
The friend, an expert in coins evaluation, saw it as a good deal and paid the amount with no hesitation .
The total amount of 1500 rubles enabled Peter to get a first-class seat at the stadium.
The weather was wonderful, the view unobstructed, Zenith won the game, and Peter was more than happy.

Who lost?
