Entries in this blog

1. Stop reading shitty blogs

2. Report shitty blog to mods

3. Regret reporting shitty blog , afterall all blogs are shitty and what the f do I read now?

4. Stop concentrating on shitty blogs and actually get a resolution list going

5. AKo is not infallible, realise that it can lose and the old guy calling with Qd8d is sometimes going to get there, serenity now.

6. Start a band made up of poker players from Australia , afterall the draconian no online poker laws are not going away any time soon, so what else do we have to do?

7. Admit that I don't know wtf I am doing and then take advantage of free videos from 1985 to spice up and tighten up my game

8. Get a bankroll together by selling all my no.1 issues of house cleaning monthly,buy a google watch, take advantage of the email I got asking to buy all my bitcoins for a cool $75 each(do this quickly before they realise how inflated their offer is) Use the same email link to transfer 80% of each bank account to an offshore site so they can set up a player account for me which allows me to play from Australia but register as playing from Europe

9. Advise all my friends and relatives to do the same,and if anyone is reading this feel free to do the same I can send you the link once I get the technician to unlock my computer because someone was trying to infiltrate my system and the company I am using for all the transfers were able to catch them for me and are in the process of correcting it as soon as the fee is paid,shouldn't take too long , but basically just go online and ask for people who can tranfer your money for you and set up a safe/false identity

10. Make bank

It's going to be a good new year because this time I am prepared for the year . rather than waiting for the cliche New Years Eve "soft promise" to change my ways and do things better. My plans are already in progress, hell I may as well become a financial advisor on the side for extra money after all the stuff I've been taught by Hugo the money man over the past week.

Wishing all the poker world and all industries related to this wonderful game all the best for the New Year. Let's work together to help the game prosper , basically as players we can try something wild like talking at the table and using word play for tells and information, I understand this used to be called "playing poker" and in turn this will make the promoters,producers and news sources jobs that little bit more easy by making the content more attractive to the general public. Going down in flames because doofus want to talk about 3% edges and how wonderful he/she is makes no sense to anyones bottomline.

We have no time to spare with the shopping season well under way so I wont sugar coat it. Have the xmas fight early, yes it may seem a bit unorthodox or even risky but we know that the fight is going to happen each year, but each year we still try to convince ourselves that it doesn't have to happen.Save all the tension and get the undercards started early . Rather than waiting for the crowds to file in wouldn't it make better sense career wise for the underdog fighter to get the bout started so that the number of witnesses /opinions/counsellors/solicitors/reporters and commentators who see the fight in real time are kept to a minimum? In this analogy the poker player or banker is the underdog and without coming off sexist ususally the male of the relationship. This is not a dig at women being vindictive or not understanding the nuances of maintaining a bankrol it is a no contest acceptance that we are the inferior debators. Year after year you allow the contest to be tipped in the oppositions favour by looking like a maniac in front of the constant stream of guests and relatives taking part in the 3 month occupation of your household.

Rather than the usual passive reaction to the unexpected gift ideas your better half may suggest or dodging any decisions with neutral "that sounds nice, how did you find that" or the old classic of hallway chatter that trails off mid answer ,afterall most questions are rhetorical when relating to gifts anyways, try the new no nonsense system.

There is an announcement that the $1300 reindeer napkin holders earmarked for your neighbours recently divorced sister are now on special for $900, your usual response is "that sounds a bit steep ,(then the retraction) but having people over for dinner parties will help her get out there and meet people" .In years gone past the sweat that was about to drip from your balls retracts and you actually congratulate yourself for what you see as a win, ie you did not get in trouble . This year is different , think of a poster for the cheesy Arnold Swharz xmas movie the husband , sorry I need to pause , look this is coming off really one sided and sexist and I don't want it be misconstrued, this is an attempt at satire so don't take it personal or literally ,NEVER TAKE OR DO ANYTHING I SAY LITERALLY it is a bit of 1950's stereotyping without the "bang straight to the moon".So, terminator doush bazookas the xmas tree and spends the movie sabotaging shopping trips and arriving guests travel plans then at the end the wife clamps his balls and shows him videos of pre-Hollywood Arnold and his gym buddies outnumbering a woman 6 to 1, and the realisation is that Arnie is truly a doush and women try their best but look what they are working with.That was a weird deviation wasn't it? Anyone that has read previous blog attempts will probably be used to the lapses in order and the slim possibility of making any sense of the typing.

If you have a bankroll that you always dip into at this time of the year out of guilt or in a good natured attempt to have the gift credit card paid off, and each year you realise that you are enabling the holiday shopping addicts that the major department stores have hypnotized into existence this is your lucky day. Send 3 payments of $18 a month for 24 months and get the simple to follow money making , super saving marriage supercharge system. Our operators are standing by to take your call but be quick because our special offer is only available to the first 20 callers who believe they are the first 20 callers.

Step 1 Initiate a fight relating to electricity overuse stemming from mechanical santa and his reindeer and suggest turning off the lights by 8pm .

step 2 Go on the shopping trips , by choice and run interference, steer the no name ham in a can into the shopping cart along with the $2 shop knick knacks over the homewares choices, raise your voice and embaress your partner continuosly , then talk in a mono tone non aggressive tone when they are screaming , this will portray them as trhe maniacal shopper to your fellow mall drones , painting you as the victim.

Step 3 Bamboozle, suggest overpriced costly presents for your family and then retract them while outwardly being obvious that you have taken offense to the fact that your famuly is not worthy of a speed boat or 150 inch TV, act pissy for the rest of the trip and for the real students of super system, this is your cue to road trip your way out of the picture for a week or two. But remember there can be no contact and you will have a head start thanks to accepting our financial advisors advice to drain all cash from your accounts to limit the chance of being tracked and reduce the pool available for shopping, this was initiated by our operators when you agreed that you needed help all our calls are recorded and the terms were stipulated in the transfer form you signed and faxed or scanned back to our mid Cayman credit card division.

It is at this time that you will realise that it was good commerce on your part to take our operators advice to pre pay your instalments on the super system in full and to upgrade to 24 hr operator assistance just in case you lose your place or get the urge to back out of the super system, our operators are trained to guide you through the tough times you will never be alone as long as you ration the 2 phonecalls a day maximum properly or speak to our operators about the all day everyday plan that allows you to pay by the minute saving you the grief of uncertainty, mention the word rudolf to receive the super system special offer exclusive to our platinum club.

Happy super system and to all a good night.

Buying in for short stack $250 at casino $2/$3 NLHE $100/$500 buy in tables. Learned internet kids are basically colluding by summising that I will be playing top 5% range .What they tell each other and everyone else in earshot is that if I am in the hand, then I am in the hand, or if they reraise me light I will only be able to continue with solid holdings TT+ AJo+. Does this make me a donkey pussy? or a weak tight clown or will they brand me with some other label? Like a lame horse/donkey? Words hurt.

Maybe I am being a bit too precious, afterall I won't be playing in such a manner , my hands will include Jh8h from mid position and any consecutive or gapped holdings. That should throw them off, unfortunately what I do is the total annihalation of my stack with AcTd vs baby poker and his mate who after raising pre with BTN JJ hits a bloodyy set on the flop. Being short and wily I shove looking to take it down with any ace or at least hit a back door straight . What are the odds of me losing? Well they can't be that bad and after all having misread or rather remembering my hand wrong my heart starts to flutter with every heart that hits the board. So after successfully willing the flush all the way by the time we get to the river and the four flush completes I am all hyped to smack the smug little internet encyclopaedia with a bad play come good. Before I mistakenly turn my hand over with the intent and confidence of a winner my mind has already started deconstructing how they will be chasing me on every subsequent hand and after tightening up and playing a range that is the polar opposite to what my usual bored self plays I will stack them , re stack them etc etc. Now normally I avoid stacking people , leaving them with something to play with rather than send them to the cage but these guys can turn even the most gentle, considerate , buddah like(physically and emotionally) person into a ruthless thrash machine stealing kids lunch money with crooked dice or marked cards.

However as you have probably already caught on I held Ad not Ah and having earlier that day waited for a spot on the table for 3 hours there is a story to why I was not rebuying after this mad donation to mediocre man.

EARLIER THAT DAY-

The $1/$3 PLO tables had a spot so hey how bad could it be? Normally when I play online and chase hands I do ok, and I'm going to play conservative just to play a fw rounds and kill time till NLHE spot opens up how bad could I do? If anything it may be a smart play and a new beginning where I play PLO instead of NLHE afterall the pots are massive even at these stakes. First hand I hit trip 5's on the flop and get smashed by a set of 7's then with AAxx i lose to an ugly straight after failing to reload in time and only having $40 or so to push my opponent out with, so his crap broke me and possibly saved me $200 because if I had reloaded I'd say he still would've called my $200+ shove anyway.

Where does this leave me, aside from a poker room I had no business being in. What I had done from the get go was set myself up to fail, or at least go broke for the day. Walking in to a card room with $500 which amounts to one regular buyin or two to three problem inducing short buy ins was mistake one through six, seven being my hand range.

Please refrain from searching me out in the card rooms of the world as the lesson has been absorbed and my new philosophy is fool proof or at least allows me to hang around longer and bluff bigger.Next time I enter a card room I will be holding more money , that should work out better, Vegas The Mirage and all that crap, here I come.

The time has come the offers have started rolling into your inbox, according to the poker sites we can all get to WSOP 2011 for free or with a small investment of player points or dollars.This is my year to break the downswing and conquer my poker mediocrity once and for all.The way I see it my opponents aren't beating me I'm just playing bad and making their job much easier,if I was to play text book poker combined with my obvious talent I too would be on the cover of the magazines,but that's not my style.There needs to be a certain arrogance if you hope to be a truly gifted player .Showing bluffs of 3D 8S under the gun is what poker pioneers had in mind when they referred to poker skill not variance odds good cards or the myth of position.Executing this theory I expect to be on my way to Las Vegas this year, if not let the poker gods condemn me to Sydney Australia and the 1c/2c tables of shame.

Registering in a Full tilt main event sit and go right now if you don't hear from me watch ESPN and look for the new big thing in poker.Conversely I may have to explain what went wrong in another blog post but IF i WAS YOU i'D BET AGAINST THAT HAPPENING after all I am the master of my own destiny and the secrets of poker I have outlined here are my ticket how could I possibly fail.

This was meant to be a quick comment at the end of another article on Phil Hellmuth gets someone to explain who this coleman kid is .

Normally my blogs come with a warning at the end but for this one I will put it out now, this is a different style of writing than you may be accustomed to. There are more entries available, by doing a quick search on this site Pocket 5's you will be able to to acclimatise yourself and once you get a couple under your belt hopefully you will eagerly await my next awakening and article entry. Normally these blogs go on and on (TLDR) this one is a knee jerk so should be suitable for even the worst internet skimmer, please if you are born post 1980 don't take this as a personal attack just a quick straight to the point opinion that I have on the state of poker. Grammar and subject were not checked , the players mentioned were all from memory please don't abuse me for leaving anyone out, actually I would welcome comments on what you guys think and who you guys think has helped our game inthe past present ...future?

Coleman the hermit back on stage using Hellmuths so called self gratifying antics to draw attention to his own tantrum.For someone who shuns the poker world and needs a heater to keep him in the loop to refuse to aknowledge the value of the players that have come before and will be remembered long after he is gone then to go further and accuse others of shameless self promotion is a bit rich. Let's go back to superbrat I mean coleman refusing the interviews ,which was the the only reason the interview got an extra mention . Then he messes his diaper and mentions Phil's name , if he had not mentioned Phil Hellmuth his little murmur would have died off long ago and caused way less damage. Phil Helmuth actually was the bigger man, I'll write that again Phil Hellmuth was the one who acted graciously after being pulled into the spotlight by this poker gnat fighting for the lights of the poker media. Just realised Coleman is a bad boy he is spontaneous, speaks his mind and doesn't compromise his principals, he'd ride an American made Harley Davidson only the handlebars vibrate too much and manicures are costly even with an ev freeroll that I doubt will be repeated, by Coleman anyway. Broadcasters of our lovely game can barely keep a casual viewer awake for more than 3 minutes during a final table broadcast without a comedian to fill in the gaps and this guy thinks he knows how to play poker. when will we realise that the t-shirt crew may be able to do the numbers but they have no life , no character ,no future value to add to this game. Obtuse or not we loved the WSOP from the early days but 2003 to even 2010 was a real poker tournament with real players not spoilt brats who have no clue what the Hall of Fame is .If not for the pioneers of the game these guys would be playing cards in a basement in Canada at best .Let's see Coleman walk into a cardroom win a pot and walk out of there with any money ,these kids get cold sweats when any female other than mummy talks to them let alone a pissed off delicatessen or old school grinder . This would have been his and all the other kids fates if not for the guys from the aforementioned WSOP broadcasts and the like.Their accounting profession would be their only salvation they would be living the life they were destined to .Poker rooms were being closed across the board in casinos , you couldn't hope to get a game and online may not have been what it is today without the 2003 WSOP result.

So stand up and applaud the show that was Matusow Hellmuth Farha , Kid Stu Ungar, the other kid Negreaneu , the real old boys Brunson , Puggy, Harrington, Amarillo slim, the rest and the others bad ,good maniacal ,radical right and wrong.

For if not for the path these boys trailed your current safety net would be non-existent and maybe a broken arm in a staircase accident after you tripped over a bucket and then were hit by a swinging door into the path of a postal van could well have been the reply you got to your misguided wisdom.

What would Mike Matusows reply have been if he was asked why he spoke trash about Hellmuth? Yeah exactly real poker players. Hellmuth you used to be a wanker and we loved you for it I understand you chose to mellow , the problem is there is no nursery of players coming up behind you to fill the void maybe we should add a paintball round or monster truck poker to every third blind.

Hello everybody, I am really happy to be your friend I have been very busy lately meeting up with some

other people I know , important people too. My friend from the fruit market said that a lot of people

have a computer inside their house and there is no need for me to stand at the fruit market all day just to

meet up with and make new friends , all I have to do is get myself a computer and write nice things and

talk about kittens . This seemed like a perfect opportunity for me because kitten talking is what I do all

the time and I am not shy to say I do it best. The rest of the people I ran into and all the shop owners in

the supermarket told me the same thing , I think Garry had already told them what he had got me

thinking about because even before I got to say a word they were all telling me go home even some of

the teenagers knew and they knew about the kittens too because they were calling out go home you

pussy.

When I got onto the computer my twitter friend Howard L who goes by the cat inspired handle Led rar

as in the cat goes raar or roar I'm not exactly sure which one because we have never met or exchanged

messages so I haven't asked him what the rar means or if it is actually lederer and I just read it as a pussy

roar. With each reference to pussy roar I saw people also say he was on tilt and your a donkey and a thief and some other nasty

things too.Not being familiar with these terms I typed them into Ask Jeeves to see what they meant, aside from the reference to

sexual favours with his family and pets there was always references to poker and stealing. Being that he

is my twitter friend I refuse to believe that he is really a lying cheat he is just a liar who was cheating so I

looked more at the poker stuff and saw a lot of good things mentioned about this Pocket Fives site or

Pocket 5's for short.

The rumours were true Pocket 5's is a lovely site with threads about kittens a few about those donkeys

that keep popping up and even a few posts about me where people joke about me being a pea brain and

a Dhead .This is why after writing a blog for a competition on a lesser site I needed help and I knew that I

had to tell all my friends at the Pocket5's community what I needed , I'll pay you back anytime you like

and if there is anything any of you need in the future contact me ,I don't care what it is I will always help

a friend whether you want help moving furniture , or a new recipe for squashed possum and beans ice

cream or if you need me to hurt myself I'll do it.

Look I submitted the blog thinking if I was just able to get something down maybe somebody would

read it like it and then maybe like me.How it actually works is people read the posts and vote for their

favourite, or you just get your friends and family to vote for you over and over again.This seems flawed

and easily manipulated and goes totally against my own sense of pride and fairplay ,which outrages me

because for the first time I was ready to beg steal and cheat my way into the record books but the

problem still remains,ah I can feel a song coming on...ah yeah sorry about that usually I am very focused

and straight to the point none of this long winded TLDR type of stuff that would probably signify an

egomaniac or a socially awkward reject , as I was about to reveal the issue I have is not with exposing

myself to the scrutiny of the judges or being ostracised from the federal association of blogging

championships and fun committee 2014 or FAOBCAFC2014 for short of which I am a founding member

but with the fact that after all these years of being a great person I still struggle to find a way to get people

to sit on the couch when I want them to or get Garry from the shop on the corner to call me Mr Manila re

, basically I have no friends to tell to vote for me. Then comes a beacon of light and understanding that is

Pocket Fives or Pocket5's for short ,sure I don't know what Pocket5's stands for but I am sure that the

people on it seem real and nice or at least I don't think they will mumble abuse under their breath every

time they see or hear my name, oh maybe mjw006 does and Nur1ck should start that pretty soon too. So please if you can or if you have the time please vote for MANILA RE

as it is a matter of life and death "if you want it to be " call me and we can do some yoga or Jenga,yeah

Jenga is good , hang on I'll just reach over and get my phone I've never needed to give out my number so I don't know it off by heart ,almost got it, I'm in the bath and the phone

is just in front of the hair dryer , if I just pull the cord on the dryer and drag them both closer I should be

able to just reach... here it comes... SIZZLE SIZZLE

You sado masochists.

Read my shit you sick &%cks if I get some more views maybe I can keep spamming this stuff more often then we can all have something to laugh about, or cry in the process we surely will learn to love ...yes I am crying now.

MANILA RE

You sado masochists.

The typing has started and I still have not committed or even considered a topic of discussion. Here I am on the second sentence just stringing it along filling up space , this is starting to mirror my poker study , if I have the balls to call it study that is.Study is still random lists of videos and forum streams getting organised and indexed and skimmed through without actually taking any advice from them , not because the posts or videos are lacking credibility(not that I'd be able to tell if they were talking sense or just spouting numbers and so called perfect scenarios)

This blog entry is a follow on from a previous attempt at poker stardom or at least knowing whether a straight beats a flush on a double paired board when you get check raised by a duck or a Lederer.

Personally the posts that I weakly attempted to camouflage as real work are related to the percentages that I should already have figured out by using pokerstove and Equilab. If not the question relating to equity and perfect play by the numbers poker , my questions are still dominated by what do the stats mean which gets answered look on HEM2 FAQ because I don't even know what it is I am asking for , so I have needed to further reduce the complexity and show quite obviously that the idiot's guide to HEM2 stats was written for me but needs a re-edit to bring in picture stories and maybe a baby sitter or morning happy land hour with stuffed animals so while I drink my warm milk( not able to handle/touch hot milk as I will surely burn myself) in the morning the specialised host can explain things to me through a 34 part series of lessons which will send others to drink hot milk and purposely scorch their crotch with it.

Let me finish with another attempt at what my mind thinks I need to know to feel better playing online poker.Harrington on online 6-max cash games goes through various stats and their labels ,logically using two or three stat numbers he explains what can be at times straight forward(once he points them out to me) while others are close to genious with simple two to three paragraph examples .Hopefully this was not another failed attempt by me to get my fellow members to do my legwork but rather the beginning of a beautiful mind being unlocked and once and for all the jumble of numbers on my table hud can be useful rather than a hinderence , maybe I can stop hyper ventilating when I am faced with a 37c bet.

Cheers all and GG.

PS: normally the entries aren't this boring but I may be getting old or maybe along with poker wisdom comes the burden of maturity so weep with me as I wave away my wit say "Ta-ta " to my supposedly unique writing style, there's no use saying good bye to my balls as my wife should be home soon and luckily for me she has got them with her .

Don't you step on my blue house shoes,you can leave prints on my screen kick my dog in the spleen but don't spew in my fluffy blue poker playing shoes.

This week on useless shit manila re blogs about ,it's random actions once again,after starting with a mock rendition of Elvis Presley's Blue Suede Shoes , the only way is up(baby for you and me now the only ..distant slap ..aaand were back).

Final 9 ,yee haw everybody is lining up for the conclusion of the biggest annual poker tournament and at the moment it seems to be up there with The Pictionary knitting championships of 1988 (Disclaimer: There is a distinct possibility that the aforementioned championship is fictional and a buzz has not been created around it's climax ,oh and the pictionary thing too has not been verified).

Where are the interviews ?Why aren't my poker representatives on all the talk shows,sport shows, news channels or making guest appearances at other sporting events? Throwing out the first pitch of a MLB playoff would work , or how's about a sit and go to decide who tosses the coin for the start of an nba game OR EVEN TO ATTEND THE PINNACLE OF FREESTYLE YARN KNITDRAWING {you have just witnessed street slang in the making yes people that's how I troll , knitdrawing is mine}(please refer to above disclaimer) surely would not have been that much of a STRETCH (he shoots he scores) to organise . Here we are explaining to our friends and loved ones that we will be missing two days of work, again, in order to watch the greatest event on the poker calender and rather than replies of "yeah man that is the cool one man yes I do dig this thing you talk about it is groovy it is even of the bomb variety ,let's bump baby" it's more like you are not really giving up two days pay to watch people gamble(poker is a game of skill please refer to Howard Ledere and Ultimate Bet to get the run down) this is not on! Not in this day and age of T-e-c-h-n-o-l-o-g-y and the new girl on the block Facebook would probably work too.

What was this blog about again? Oh yeah my handle (name used to identify oneself or ones character in the virtual world of card game playing) is manila re ,since when did anything to do with me make any sense.Peace out yo yo and let me lol you rofl when it 's time to wilk my omds.(gibberish basically)

can't waiiit...

There's a good chance I am a real person ,like I may not have an opinion of any bearing ,I don't own a fortune 500 company where I control numerous ro bots but I really do believe I am a real boy. Running stats of 75/35 calling major overbets on the turn and river with 38o may seem like a malfunctioning bot and a reason to terminate the offending parties connection, but pokerstars you're cramping my style. Just when I had the two tables I was playing at thinking I was a wild child with no real idea about hand rankings you go and turn my access off. Now talking to Jimmy Hoffa this morning he said it reminded him of the persecution he underwent during his hey days and although I was humbled by the fact that he played down massive investor fraud , mob ties and pension rorting just to make me feel good I totally agreed with him if anything I think that I have been treated worse , afterall Jimmy got to see who was coming after him,me I've never been to the Isle of Mann and dont even know who this pokerstars guy is anyway.

What do I want I hear you ask ,well here I am playing 2c/5c ,no limit mind you , and holding my first real hand Ad10d I raise pre 3x ,15 whole cents and then BAM CRASH BOOM ,OH MY BEJEEZY fix the router quick turn it on turn it off then pull out the plug of the modem , are the lights going flashety flash flash? they will rue the day do you hear me pokerstar "the day".

Then after a while it came back on but I didn't feel like playing so I put some ice cream.

I just need to study

Here I am again 3 tables open and struggling to keep up , sure it's the notes that I never use taking up most of the time bank but my slow sometimes non-existent poker mind is the real issue.Once again I will mention the "plethora"(I've used this word before,hence the 66 99) of resources available to todays player and how it is not being used to it's full potential ,the proverbial forbidden fruit was released to us some years ago and this was meant to be the end of the professional poker players edge. Conversely it seems to have spawned two generations of pompous personalities who use other players forum posts to learn then forget where they got the information and instead of aknowledging the author they adopt a superhuman, no let me correct that super simple , no super arrogant delusional view of themselves and their game spewing off numbers and ridiculously recalling three month old hands and persisting with the view that they know that the villain played it wrong and poker is being infiltrated by idiots and the rest and he/she will go on and on and on and on. Give a thought to the past ,as I have mentioned in other blogs poker players never had the comfort of secure deposits(okay there is a question mark these days too,online anyway) games weren't always played in plush surroundings ,sure the majority of regulars had some sense of integrity but pistols and cue sticks were the norm. What I guess I am getting at is that etiquette is losing , between the new age know it all and Mortensen holding KK and tanking not because he was going through the live action for 15 minutes or so, but only as a quite slimy ploy to have his opponent get tired frustrated whatever and give off some sort of a tell it is getting embarrassing. To further infuriate the home viewer when a clock is called and he takes all the time the hand is over he has the audacity to ask his opponent pressing direct quite "simple" questions and he is a "champion" supposedly , we are in dire straits.

This blog has taken on a life of it's own because I was planning on venting about my own lack of action in terms of poker study but instead it has turned into a subliminal steam release.Hopefully some sense can be made of my attempt at wit and social commentary and the majority of the poker world who read this do understand what I am eluding to, for the others table talk is an art form, double meanings getting your opponent to relax and give out information willingly or unknowingly is a skill in itself, so if you are unable to do this don't lower yourself to direct questions or use your other table members polite nature against them because whether you can see it or not you are doing more damage to yourself and the environment than I care to mention. When it comes to talking past hands and the "fish" playing it wrong and "what an idiot" and the rest , you are basically boring everyone with the bad beat stories 2nd cousin.

Poker is a beautiful game trying to get thrust further into the light so please don't go dragging it back into the comic book style bad guy scene and further justify the way that so called conservative society sees the game , after all we are trying to get this game legalised and regulated for everyone's benefit. Just think, if it does catch on and go totally mainstream you can start talking about fish again and make yourself look good with your "superior" play .

Week in, week out, is your game improving?

2011-02-28 They have arrived boxed and packed tight, cleared customs and ready to be read. My poker books , now what? Read and read again? Just how much time are we talking here in terms of poker education?

So like I said, I now have the resource material, how long will it take to read, absorb, understand and read again while conducting an everyday existence? Let's say you're at University, you go to lectures you have tutorials you fail a subject you do it over. This line of thinking leads me to believe that my meager 5 book library is enough to fill my days, nights weeks and months for a good two to three years! Is this the time frame I am looking at to be a semi competent player? Is this what the rest of the grinders or casual poker groupies are doing or is this what separates the guppies from the sharks?

I am not cut out for all this theoretical input. I'd say good luck and good riddance but...poker is what it is, whether you're looking to tell the boss man to go "stick it" or make your million dollar dreams a reality, we all have a reason for hovering amongst this medium.

It seems the difference comes down to work ethic and in the rare cases natural talent. The more you put in, the more you should get out right? There is another way to become a poker scholar apart from being coached and the like, you can put in major time at the tables and pay your tuition in sweat or be a man , or woman and commit yourself to the cause fully. Seems I will be leaving the concept of learning to win behind, because as much as I would like to play the superstar and crush poker, I don't seem to have the dedication for it.

So if you see me at the tables there is a good chance that I am not losing money because I am a bad player or that you are necessarily a good player, the case may well be that I have chosen the school of volume and bad play to teach myself the lesson of poker.

Either play and play again till one day you wake up broke and realise you haven't learnt a thing or be realistic and admit to yourself there is no getting around it , you need to sign up for coaching and put in work away from the tables , or give up any hope of living as a professional poker playing high roller.

Hello to all the people out there in Pocket 5's land ,my handle is manila re and I'm here to introduce a new act called blogging for donuts ,actually blogging for newbies , no thats not gonna work either. Welcome one and all to the nightmare that is "POKER" da da daaaa (ominous silence ) I will be attempting to keep a schedule for the first thats right the first time in my ever indulgent life. Due to personal difficulties I won't be blogging just yet , because I don't have the time ,so once again I will be rehashing some older posts of mine for your reading pleasure , that is if the blabbering introduction hasn't already steered you clear of the bottom of the page. Without much further ado this first blog post as dated was written in 2007 , in my regular style which is neo social non comformist to any grammar , rhyme or reason which means I don't proof read much I just spew and send or post or blog or pester or whatever . Heres to a long and loving relationship, yes I am talking to you ,you my loyal reader who whence finished or even sooner will swiftly set this twitternetemail universe alight with monologues of adoration of a blog you have just read and felt , no were required to share in order to correct an injustice which was beset upon this world by the authors reluctance to self promote and share with the world his (or hers) wonderful ravings.

But wait for just $19.95 you can get the not yet written book and dvd series. Enjoy.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

2011-02-17 Kids are off to school I've got the computer, tv room, fridge, telephone and toilet to myself let's concentrate on poker.This time of the morning is rather quiet why don't I watch a dvd then get into it. Half way throughh the first scene I remembered that I had left my nba and nhl bets till the morning. Should I eat something? I can have something quick, icecream should do it coles cookies and cream is actually better than connisseur these days.

Time is 10:30 am on to the couch ,it's not the best poker chair but until I get the recliner it will have to do. Do I play micro cash or $1.10 rebuy on PokerStars? What's my balance again somewhere about $30. built up from a 70FPP sunday million satellite. Actually I may not be ready to play cash I always get from 80cents to $3 and then within two or three hands I'm reloading again how about doing some study. Poker forums are abundant online so from here I browse article after article have initial trouble with the jargon the equity and flat calling and light play etc I deal with it but the maths eludes me still. So as I fall asleep reading I figure videos must be easier to absorb so rather than falling asleep reading articles I fall asleep watching strategy videos and hand analysis. The day basically continues on like this and the next and the next and along the way I realise that position and bet sizing is helpful everything else seems to hamper the simple limits that I play kind of like ignorance is bliss in practise.

Please help me help myself I have six months set aside for poker .On a side note sportsbetting has allowed me to increase my bankroll 20 fold in the same time I grinded $11 into $35 cashing in two $1.10 rebuy tournaments and playing abit of $2NL.

Does anyone else see the problem here?
