re: Poker & Advice for my home game...
The home games I have seen have two ways to play, not more than 10 people or you may have long waits. Someone has a watch with a timer on it.
1. This one we try to get as many games in, blinds go up quicker and no re buys.
2. This one is a one game style, 1 re buy and 1 add on at a determined blind level so you have more chances to stay in, we also have a bounty where each player puts up a couple dollars and they get a special chip and when they get knocked out the person who knocks them out gets the chip and you cash those in at the end, you never loose the chips you win just can loose your original chip so you could still get some money even if you get knocked out.
