re: Poker & Home Game
Wow, you guys waste a lot of time 18 person game takeing 6-7 hours??? You need to get a timer that goes off at about 15-20minute intervals and need to structure your blind levels a bit. Also, don't wait for people to deal the cards, if they are in the bathroom or getting a new drink, their cards die when the action passes them.
Another thing that we do to speed up our home games is whenever anyone goes broke, the blind level increases. It doesn't matter if it just went up 30 seconds ago, it always goes up when someone busts out. Keeps things interesting. There is no reason that 18-27 people should take 7 hours to get done with unless every person is taking 30 seconds to make each move.
