Control the drinking aspect first and foremost, you're there to play poker not to get drunk out of your skull and make a fool of yourself. Secondly as any good host would do, make sure there are plenty of snacks and refreshments , maybe charge $5-10 to each player that's coming over to help cover the costs. Make sure you have a proper table to play on and that the limits and games are pre-determined and agreed upon before everyone sits down to play. No more than 3 spares to any home game as well, you don't want a bunch of folks sitting around waiting to play after you've invited them, and you also don't want 2-3 folks canceling out of a full gamre at the last minute. Offer over buttons to players who would like to play for a bit more money. Set the house rules, break times, and conduct rules accordingly and you shopuld have an awsome home game! hope this helps. cheers..jeff

LOL! cheers..jeff jeff: are you guys allowed to go in the casino you work at and play poker there???? all the dealers here are not allowed in their casino they work for, they have to go somewhere else to play. kinda stupid if you ask me but i guess it could raise suspicions of games being fixed.

Make a set of rules and stick by them... you don't want to start arguing over dumb things.

Is it really possible to have fair and friendly home games when everyone who is playing is playing for real money. When emotions and peoples monies are always on the line, fairness and friendliness most time takes a back seat. I say to avoid these type of home games or make sure the person hosting them is not a player. This can make a night seem more fair.
