The piewife got me hooked on this a couple weeks ago. An hour can slip by pretty fast. I haven't played in a bit, but I was similar to rinberg in that you can win 3 or 4 games, 11 or 12 rounds, then it gets real hard. It's also seems skewed that if you win a game 4-3, it's better than 4-0, because you get more points. Excellent time waster!
CRZ had to edit my profile and close my table for me. I am a bad man.
I saw him play at a place called "Common Grounds" in Gainesville last fall. It's a small, snooty, chokingly smoky little coffee bar that doubles as a club, at night, and sells tall-boys of Old Milwaukee for a dollar.
