’52 Pickup

Posted: April 29, 2015 in poker

“If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near.”
 Sun Tzu

The quote above means that if you don’t have it, bluff.  If you don’t have the cards, make the enemy believe that you do.  If you have 3 to the flush, make him believe you have four, if you have deuces, make him believe they are three kings.  If you can.  Now that is the “Art” of war.

My brothers were all about bluffing.  Wouldn’t it be nice to travel back in time, to the games of our childhood? They also used to play a game with me called fifty-two pickup, that had nothing to do with Chevy’s or Fords, but rather just throwing 52 cards on the floor & telling me to pick them up.

Happy wandering….. reserving plane tickets today. Not traveling in a ’52 Pickup…although that would be way more fun. And yeah, with Maverick and Cool Hand Luke as role models, there is some planning, and a lot of happenstance.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Happy Wanderer.”

What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide?
