Then I'm not sure what the complaining is for. Sounds like you have a bunch of guys hanging out "playing cards", not playing competitive poker.
90% of the time, I just want to play NLHE to win. Hanging out with the guys is fun, but if I'm in a playing NLHE to win mindset, I am really not interested in some goofy crap like Indian poker. If I'm not in tune with the game that's being played for fun
, I don't go because it's not fun for me, and they don't want me either nitting it up or shoving into them. They just want to have fun.
So, for this game, I'd say go to have fun or don't go.
