Re: Sticky Home Game Means New Rule?

I would do everything I could to discourage any hand speculations while the hand is in progress. After the hand is over, everyone can chat it up and I agree, that is fun in the right environment. But...

Re: home poker cash NL

You can never make somebody stay. We have an "informal" policy that requests players not to drag a huge pot and get up and leave. It just doesn't sit well in a home game to hit and run. It doesn't...

Re: CALI Home Poker Law

I'm no expert, but you may have a couple of concerns:

Walking into an unknown game is always a little dicey. I'm mostly worried of the "getting" ripped off aspect more than anything.

Re: Whats the ruling here?

For a home game, there's no need to kill the hand. AS long as both active players see the cards, they both thave the same knowledge (no advantage) and should proceed with the hand.

Re: I have an interesting question??

Nope.

Always play your best. Those who joke about "donating" thier money to you, enjoy the challenge of taking on the top dog. You'd be cheating them if you were to tank a couple tourneys.

Re: Home ruling help.

Wow! What a mess. We use 2 decks and this kind of thing has never happened and I hope it doesn't.

Re: How much do you need for a little 3/6 B&M play?

Re: Unethical behavior at the table-- how do you handle it?

Ask the dealer what the rules are (even if you know them) and ask him/her to enforce them. Call the floor if you have to.
