The answer depends mostly on what you want from the game. If it's all about fun (and those...

Re: Strange Claims

I enjoyed reading some of these. It doesn't matter how wrong a guy is, it's damn tough to convince him when it's his money in the pot. Add in the fact that he might have actually played that way for...

Re: Need advice for a micro stakes home game

It really depends on your players and how long you plan to play. Our game started with $0.05 ante and $0.05-$0.25 spread limit, and five bucks usually lasted the sober players 5-6 hours. Of course,...

Re: How do you run a bad beat jackpot in a home game?

I tried it once, but I doubt I'll do it again. When you've only got one table going, setting the qualifications can be tricky. One week, you'll have boat (or better) over boat three times, and the...

I've only dealt with Kem cards, but I've seen decks that curved up and decks that curved down. I assume it's based on which side of the roll of plastic gets painted with the reverse design. Neither...

Re: 6 players enough for a tourney? (Quick response needed please)

Hell, we've done a couple of nights with four-player tourneys. We had three tables running and, as soon as you busted, you got in line for the next one open. We ran at least 10 tournies each night. ...
