So, I'm watching Take Me Out To The Holosuite on the YouTubes.
I won't bother going over it because this being STO I'm pretty confident you're familiar with everything DS9. But the question in the comments was posed, "Where was Garak?" since he had all of the traits required for sports: Cunning, tough, willing to cheat his butt off.
My theory was that Sisko asked him, he suggested poisoning the Vulcans before the game, and Sisko decided to go with Rom after all. You?
