I've been playing poker for quite awhile and know what I'm doing. What kind of strategy do I use of these type of players? Thoughts/Comments are welcome.
TBH I really dont see the point in trying to beat these games.
You should be able to do well by just having a clue about poker. But really the whole point of these is to drink beer and have a laugh with your friends.
Its difficult to come up with any kind of stratagy (other than play tight and be aggressive) with people who arent playing any strategy of their own.
I personally would just buy a crate of beer, pay the $10 fee and just have a fun cheap evening like the others intend to.
You should win a few by virtue of the fact you can play.
But to really play properly you cant get drunk etc.. which is the whole point of the home game. Its not supposed to be taken seriously... thats what casinos
