re: Poker & Home Games Info
Glad to hear your games a running well. One suggestion I would have, to make new comers feel a little safer, is not let the next dealer shuffle their own cards. Let the person who dealt the hand before, shuffle the next deck and pass it to the SB.
If you find games starting late, have a chip incentive for those who register before a pre-determined time (6:55 for a 7pm start). Those that are late, don't get the extra chips.
Your starting stacks and blind levels will determine the skill and patient factors for your tournaments. As it stands now, these finish too quick for the more skillful players to have time to exploit their games.
