Table Games

I enjoy table games that require skill such as chess, poker and billiards.

Chess: I am an average player but I do enjoy chess literature. USCF Rating: 1782

Poker: Texas Hold 'Em is my favorite, but I also like 5-card draw and 7-card stud.

Billiards: More and more I am beginning to enjoy 8-ball; it is very close to chess as it does require strategical thinking. I am currently in a league for Team 8-Ball. I shoot with a Predator P2.

Cycling: I just got into it as I really need a low-impact cardio-vascular form of exercise. My entire pool team rides, so I might as well join in. They are very supportive. I ride a Dawes 1000 Lightning.

The Sports Fan in Me

I love football. My primary team is the Bengals. I've been following them since 1981. This team has the fine tradition of losing to the eventual Super Bowl winners. So if you play us during post-season, chances are that you are on your way to a Super Bowl win.

When the Bengals are not playing, I look over to the NFC. I have adopted the Seattle Seahawks as my #2 team.
