i have loved home games its the easiest cash around no sharks and pretty low limits no risk not at all i play home games a lot and win pretty fairly. i was just wondering (note: i may make a poll) how many of you guys play at home games and do you think its more convenient and mabey better then casinos have to offer.

Home games can be easier ways to make some money, that is, if your home game isn't littered with sharks as mine is. Playing with really good players 12+ hours/week can really improve your game though.

If I want to make money, I go to the casino, but if I want to have fun and enjoy myself with my friends, I play a home game.

Home games are great to get togeather with some friends and play for fun. I have made some cash before off of home games. We have a small $5 buy-in with $3 re-buys and we try to play two games if we don't have a full table. I've made $200 in a night before winning both games with everybody re-buying as the were busted. ( I didn't have to re-buy once, knock on wood).

Casino's are a great way to make money if you are close to one, I'm about an hour and a half away so I don't go as much as I should.

I enjoy both to be honest, so on your poll I pick C. All of the above! :)

Home games are for fun, casinos are for trying to win real money.

My problem with home games is that I only really play them with friends - consequently, the stakes are low because I really don't want to take large sums of money off them. If I could get a regular invite to a cushy home game where I didn't have that qualm... I'd probably have a different view :D

im gonna go with home games because i would probably lose my temper after losing to a suck out so it would be a bad idea for me to go to a casino. while at home games its just kind of like w/e you have couple of beers play some poker and its all good and no pressure at all, while at casinos you actually have to try and shit like that.

none of my friends play poker...
i myself recently just started playing
so, no home games for me yet...

i've been invited to some by people i've met at the casino, but haven't gone yet... probably when i get more comfortable and when i know those guys better...

I only play at home, the nearest casino is like 5 hours away so i never bother to go there

home games are fun, more relaxed but i do most of my poker at full tilt

Home game for me. I've heard that the lowest stake at the casino's where I live is €5 BB (so a normal buyin is €500,-). That's way above my comfort level, so I usually just play for fun at my home game.

Since I have no life, and play on the internet from my home, I include them in 'Home Games' and voted thusly.

Home game for me - good company, and no rake. Would be interested in trying playing at a casino, though, to see if I make more money there.
