If its a 20$ buy in home game and it truly is "all luck", then kick back and have fun, its only 20$... but most likely, your not as good as you think you are.
Alot of home games break down like this:
-1 to 2 "sharks" aka players who know the basics of the game (pot odds, position, basic styles of play, TAG or LAG, etc.) these guys are typically either a. where the game is hosted or b. the one who organizes the game and their normally the "big winners"
- 2 to 4 "normal players" aka players who know not to play K2o or 6 2o, but play any Ace and chase their draws. These guys could go up or down on any given night, mostly based on whether the luck is in their favor.
- 1 to 2 "fish" aka players who honestly have no clue whether this is blackjack
, holdem, gin rummy or bridge and neither do they care. They call with any two cards hoping to win big. There just there for the social aspect of the game and the thrill of gambling. These are the guys who call your all in with Q4o and flops two pair to win haha
Home games can be profitable, but at the same time there just home games. There not meant for 1,000's of $'s to change hands, there more of a social reason to get together and play some poker while watching football/basketball etc. If you just learn basic poker strategy
and play very TAG, then you should be able to turn a couple of extra bucks playing with these guys
