      I have a chouette match every Wednesday with Brian Wall (Grandmaster in chess but just getting started on backgammon) and another poker player the stakes started off friendly by 2019 it might be less gamble for me to just fly to you. Im not kidding.
      I have a ton of gamble as you know, these guys are masochist. Brian first roll 6/1 first roll, we roll a 4-3. Brian auto reaches for the cube. Partner looks at me and says you want to double him back now or just take it lol.
      It all depends on who you play...I have played anywhere from a dollar to a hundred dollars a point with the cube...Have not played for big money in a couple years, but I do love the game...

          We play 10 a point chuette and 15 in singles. I have the best of if against one and neutral on the other but he has a cube advantage (math guys lol) but we move up in stakes if someone gets stuck and requests it. In 6 months I have had a -48 point deficit and +112 point session never exceeding 16 on the dye and never playing longer than 5 hours. Told you it was gamble heavy! If youd like we can play online or on any of the backgammon apps set the stakes and pay via paypal if you are interested. Im not going to sandbag I can play some and pay a sum.

                I play 30/60 limit hold em where gambol, gambol is the mantra of half the table for the past 8 years. Im full of fear I just have a higher pain tolerance than I once did. Pick a site and we can play for 1-5 a point if youd like. Preferably a site with a mobile app that accumulates score. I can play at the table if its slow if thats ok.
                Not interested in anyone who has wins tourneys as part of his handle. I do battle with him 4 months a year already he gets 11 to my 10 as it is.

                  Are the betting books plentiful there? Who else is there besides CRIS?

                      Gabe if you're not going to post ALL your plays on the website why not post them ALL in ONE thread and let people know where that is?

                              I play better than the avg Joe but I'm not close to as good as the avg serious player. VD, Whitlaw, the Cigar, etc would all still take me to school. Another 6-12 months and they might not like it though lol.
