Huge suggestion here. Drink some beers and have some fun with the boys. No reason to play cut throat and piss anyone off for $10 weekly.
I have attend an occasional neighborhood game where we play $10 turbo SNGs. We have no dealer button, host wants a big blind button and small blind button. 100 chips of all colors to start, Blinds are 2-4 until first one is out (or 10 mins go by), then it's 3-6 until next player down, then 4-8, 5-10, etc. Once it's heads up we go to 10-20 for rest of game.
Some other silly rules, but it a a great group of guys and most are clueless when it comes to poker. Alcohol is imbibed, good times are had, and laughs all around for the night. Poker game
is very much secondary to the boys night out. I tend to force myself to dummy down and break even or worse to stay in the group.
