    Default Hobbies other than poker?

    What are your other hobbies other than poker guys? I'm sure you all don't grind 24/7 and have other activities as well, one of mine is drawing, I like to draw, anything and everything, just recently did a piece for my little nieces birthday who is obsessed with Frozen (as most children are these days lol)

    With your talent i might have already arranged way of being an illustrator of a writer of children's stories or as we are in a digital era, using technological to draw, invent characters for computer games or something related. I say this because I have a friend that's a writer and once he was looking for an illustrator for the book he was writing. (i hope you understood my bad english)
    I see you have fun with that. Nice choice!
    Cheers!

    Was considering going to college to take it a little further! But tbh my love for poker is greater than my love for drawing

    I like playing chess, smoking weed, watching porn, listening to music, watching mind numbing shit on the internet, talking shit on the internet, and smoking weed.

    That's a great drawing MrFerguson! Wow!

    So I'm a big fan of UFC, and now I really like playing fantasy ufc. (see my other thread: http://www.flopturnriver.com/pokerfo...gs-198727.html)

    Also collect comic book statues, here are some pics from my home office:

    Cool statues ttanaka, my other big hobbies would probably be video games and reading

    I cook quite a bit, especially when the twins go through a phase in which they want home-cooked meals.

    There are quality YouTube video recipes out there nowadays that are great even for beginners.

    My main pursuits outside of poker, and beyond the usual "spending time with family" shit are:
    - drinking real ale (not the fizzy shit)
    - watching football at all levels (inc local, amateur teams)
    - cryptic crosswords
    - playing with myself
    - being cynical at any opportunity

    Nice clue. I never used to be able to do any of the clues, but I work at the kind of place where a bloke in the office runs a cryptic crossword club at lunchtime. Once he explained how to break a clue down, I realised a lot of them are straightforward. The Everyman crossword in the Guardian is a good, entry level crossword if anybody wants to get into them.

    First thing to ask yourself when you see a cryptic crossword clue... is it an anagram? That's generally 3/4 of the puzzle solved.

    Guinness is stout, not ale. Guinness is good though, I'll grant you that much.

    Oh. I assumed real ale was any beer that isn't lager or stout. It's not like me to get something wrong.

    All beer is either lager or ale, depending on the fermenting method.

    Lagers are bottom fermented. Lagers brew in a few weeks.
    Ales are top fermented. Ales brew in a few days.

    These are the two categories of beer.

    Whether a beer is a Pilsner, IPA, Stout, etc. is a question of style.

    Any style of beer (AFAIK) may be brewed as either an ale or a lager.

    EDIT: IPA stands for India Pale Ale... and is probably not going to be a lager.

    Also... Who cares? Drink Guinness. 'Nuff said.

    I don't care, tbh. I drink cider. And not the fizzy shit either. Proper cider, made from actual apples and/or pears.

    Love going to concerts and watching live bands. I lost count to how many shows I've been too and will see Pearl Jam every time they come to town. One of my favorite concerts I've been too was Linkin Park in Prague back in 2002 or 2003.

    I like to go gold panning, find some small flakes, but its a losing venture lol
    maybe one day the big nugget will appear
    maybe one day I'll win a big poker game too lol

    also pick mushrooms in season (not the magic ones)
    anything that gets me out to the hills really
    4x4ing, fishing etc...
