More Croupier






       In one complex narrative, his mind works like an automated abacus as he adds and subtracts variables and calculates his chance of survival. Manfred ultimately concludes the popular opinion of gamblers, that they subconsciously yearn for their own destruction, is incorrect. Instead, he surmises that gamblers wish the obliteration of everyone else in the world and relishes his ideal position as a professional server of self destruction.
