Here comes the brain train-SEX SEX SEX

By: MANILA RE @ 12:41 (EDT) / 1244 / Comment ( 2 )

Now that I have your attention ,

If you have ever stumbled on a MANILA RE blog post you are most probably holding a pot of tea , a blanket got the phone off and have already called your boss to tell him/her you may not make it in today.For the uninitiated MANILA RE brain explosions come as a steady flow ,like a train ....ha ha you see what I just did there? Tie in the title, work it in without making it obvious ,use it as a point of relevance to lead on to the context of the piece. Well most of the new readers will be pointing out I gave the ghost away or are heading for their mouse as they read the last sentence out of morbid curiousity thinking they will stop there. Little do they know they are powerless to avoid reading further as now I am sending them telepathic messages forcing them to make the right choice and continue on.

Please excuse my virtual violation but it is only used in the most desperate of situations ,oh and for this blog to get a few more subscribers, cop a stamp and score and $11 ticket or two. Nobel piece prize you all say as a collective , yes it is quite obvious that it would be the logical step for my writing career to go especially now that I before E except after C has been explained to me. It is easy for me to see why you would all describe me as the greatest writer I myself have ever known, oh and the topics I choose to write about are well within the realm occupied by the most glorious of literary minds so yes piss prize for sure.

So what is left to say ? Poker ? What about it? Why you asking me for? The closest I come to a poker reporter is when I voice over one of my sessions playing 2c/5c or 5NL. 

This is an exerpt of one of my most profitable series of hands. Holding a full stack of $2.40 I wait for the blinds to come around , cleverly watching my opponents play for 3 hands while thay assume I am not posting to save the big blind. Having watched part of the 3 hands when I could fit them in between the youtube video of the giraffe and the ping pong ball shaped like a glass dog in cheese sauce, I feel I am more than ready to challenge for a full stack. Jack of diamonds seven of hearts , all reds! , oh yeah let the games begin fishies. Fortunately for me I don't need to worry about building a pot as the UTG who has a star next to his name and is from New Zealand which allows me to deduce with my keen eye for detail that he did not play in the previous hand or two so he must be a rock(A player who is a rock not the actual player is a rock , what it means is he is a rock or it could be a she after all girls do play poker these days although not very well eh guys haha,how cute of them, so a rock means they didn't play the last two hands so they must be super tight only playing good hands say pairs and cards with pictures)(oh and he/she is from New Zealand) the next one over the next to under the gun is a master player who must already read me as strong so he folds.Next one is the oe next to the one next to the under the gun he must be Greek because he raises and the name flashes 4 times beforer he does it.So he is bluffing oh and he has a picture of his mother as an avatar( I am GREEK so relax) so he is sitting in a tablecloth covered room with a garfield relaxing bedspreadon his single bed ,hence he is not a risk taker he plays ABCDEFG poker.Next it comes to me, I fake weakness and call the 5x bet.Gin* on the flop(* Gin is a slang term relating to the good fortune a player recieves when his hole cards match with the cards on the board, gin is actually another card game where it is customary to callout gin when one completes their hand or when the player wins)  six of spears 4 of hearts and 8 of diamonds, I am on easy street but I don't want to let anyone know so using reverse psychology I write in the chat box "Oh no, that is not what I wanted ,Gee I am so bad at this game" and bet half my stack , for some reason I am called by both players .The turn is another red one so I push all in and my opponents fold, now that's poker.

For any further notes on my gameplay or if you have any hands you would like me to include in my upcoming book please don't hesitate to forward them to this address game is easy @ manila re ,or better yet just comment on this blog because that address doesn't actually exist.

Please don't let the above lead you to misjudge my superior skills with the keyboard and a deck of cards I have been under a lot of stress lately after ripping my favourite bedspread trying to clean the jam off garfields face.
