What non-poker hobbies do folks have? I'm curious how much of an overlap interest in poker causes in other things.

    I like playing a multitude of card games, like cribbage, euchre, and gin. Also I'm a big baseball fan. Video games. And I enjoy fishing (is that considered poker overlap lol?).

    I play music and have a small recording studio in my garage. Played in a touring band in my late teens and early 20s. Just play at home and record songs now. I'll also record other musicians when I have time. I used to play a lot of video games but I only have time for poker and work these days. :)

    Golf and watching sports.

    I would have bet I was the only person on the site who plays cribbage.

    Used to be beach volleyball -- played at a somewhat high-ish level. Now my hobby is my kids.
    I do enjoy a nice game of cribbage now and then. We used to play bridge, 500, spades, and euchre in college. And I played canasta , gin rummy, etc, with the family.

    I'm surprised chess wasn't mentioned yet. I thought that was closely associated with poker. I used to play it but finally decided I sucked too much at a competitive level

    And I bet nobody knows this about me but a couple years ago I could shoot a .22 from 25 yards within millimeters of precision

    A lot of other things I do are a little masculine too now that I think about it. Geeky tech stuff?

    UFPS -
    Masculine: U watch porn and eat lots of take out?
    Or do u mean u rebuild your dads old 67 corvette?
  • UntreatableFPS Posts: 1,004Subscriber
    Most of that minus the porn?

    Maybe girls watch porn. We're just not as proud when we do ;)

    Haha, seriously I just meant the techy or hardware or geeky categories
  • chilidog Posts: 2,427Subscriber
    Wow. That was on point. Like 30 sec later. U really want to make sure I know that u don't watch porn, eh?
  • chilidog Posts: 2,427Subscriber
    I think I could be a pretty good sharp shooter too. I've done well the few times I've shot. But no real experience at it.
  • neverlearn2 Posts: 2,845Subscriber

    I used to be seriously addicted to online chess, but I kinda sucked at it. I was like a chess bum hunter; I could crush fish but couldn't do much against actual good players. Haven't played a game in a couple years.

    .22 rifles are the best
    If I go up from that, it's likely downgrading from 300bb to 150bb
    Shotguns are usable
    Handguns are a crap shoot like your 10 minute level daily donkament

    The problem with chess is the same problem as tennis - if you're not fairly even in skill with your partner its no fun. That's why so many people play golf. If I shoot 96 and Limon shoots 82 we can both still play together and enjoy ourselves.
