|What's his story?|
Rob's played poker off an on ever since he was a tiny person (his mother's a gambler) but only started playing "seriously" within the last year. Rob knows several members of the poker group through local boardgaming groups. He played a game or two with the crew last year but didn't become a regular until his grad school classes let up in April of 2005. Oddly, he has never played in a casino, but longs for the day he can take large sums of other people's money home with him.
|What does he do when he's not playing poker?|
Rob lives with a beautiful author named Kelley, and three geriatric pets. Poker is one of several hobbies that keeps him sane while he makes his way through grad school earning a Masters in Counseling. He also enjoys ultimate frisbee, board gaming and good food.
|Casino Poker Games of Choice|
Rob will let us all know what Casino games he prefers when he finally makes it to a Casino. He's pretty sure though that low stake no limit hold 'em will fit the bill and limit will NOT.
Board games and a need to travel top Rob's list of monetary leaks. His current (as of Aug 2005) time leaks would include school and World of Warcraft. As for poker, there are all kinds of flaws in Rob's strategy. So many flaws, in fact, that he is impossible to read, allowing him to crush opponents through mass confusion.
|Poker Pet Peeves|
Rob wants to stick hot pokers in the feet of people who bluff at empty side pots when a small stack is all in. He's also not fond of people who feel a need to extensively ponder every single decision point. Rob is also sometimes bothered by the folks who are constantly reeling off stories of their bad beats but can't seem to recall all the times THEY were the ones that got lucky. Finally, he's pretty sure he prefers to play with people who have showered.
Rob played on partypoker.com for a while until his miniscule amount of spare time began to be sucked up by World of Warcraft. He doesn't miss the online poker world much because, though it is good practice, there's just too much missing from the game there. Throw in the fact that there is ALWAYS someone chasing something and online poker becomes something he can take or leave.

|Casino Tournament Finishes|
Zero, zilch, nada. Rob's done squat, though he can claim to be the champion of the last two tournaments held at invitational board gaming events (That Board Gaming Thing, 2004 & Oasis of Fun, 2005; each with around 20 participants)
