More about barry_89741

barry_89741

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Am a 38 yr old male from the U.K., standing 6'4" tall and weighing in at a hefty 21 stone (133 kilos = 292 lbs).


What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?

I enjoy sports, films, reading, DIY tasks and of course, watching tv.


How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

I googled for 'online crib' and it gave me Eliters. I have been in CribY ever since.


How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?

Started as Bazza_england but it took too long to type so got a suggestion when I created my email account and it gave me barry89741 and it has stuck since.


Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know

I have only one and a half ear (thanks to a group of seriously drunk women attacking me at the club where I work).


What makes Eliters special?

The friendliness of the whole site, not just CribY.


What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to try?

Cribbage (of course), Pool9, Dominoes...I donate in a couple of others. I would like to try backgammon some day.


What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?

Cribbage! My grandad taught me when I was 15. I also played in local pub leagues here before playing online.


Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any other particular position you might be interested in?

I am AA and DPA in CribY. Will see how I progress (they might not want a Brit on corp).


What is your proudest achievement in life?

The birth of my son.


What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?

Timekeeping and prompt starts of matches.


If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?

When new players sign up to come up with a way that the IDs will match. There are so many occasions (and I'm sure many others have expeieniced this) when the IDs don't match resulting in problems for the players and TDs alike.


If you had one wish what would it be?

A healthy life.


If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?

Best league, best players, and best tourneys!


What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?

When I hosted my record breaking 300th tourneys in one week during Crazy cribbin' week last year.


What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?

Sitting in the lobby wondering where everyone was and it wasn't until someone im'ed me asking where I was, that I realised I was in the wrong lobby!


If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why

Issa - just for one day so I could snoop in any admin area I wanted to lol.


You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?

Hard drive, cell phone and TV (hey those muscles come in handy).


How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

I walk!


Name your three favorite movies .

Roadhouse, all Aliens films and Mad Max movies.


Do you have any particular heroes?

My dad!


What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Takeaway food!


When I grow up I want to be just like:

Who is growing up?


Any last words for our readers?
