shouldn't really be much different. The starting pot is about the same size, so the bet sizes will be similar.

\$20, especially since you need to conserve chips. Avoid having one chip worth only 2 of the next chip value (the only exception would be \$500 and \$1000 chips).

NL pots build exponentially. 3x raise and three callers 10/20 = \$2.70 25 = \$3.25 PSB on flop and two callers 10/20 = \$8.10 25 = \$9.75 PSB on turn and one caller 10/20 = \$24.30 25 = \$29.25 PSB on river and one caller 10/20 = \$72.90 25 = \$87.75 ... That's a buyin difference for this game. But more importantly, there's less variation with quarters. With dimes, you can bet 50, 60, 70, etc. if you want to do a bit more than 3x, you can do 70c. With quarters, your next jump is \$1. Let's compare THOSE numbers... >3x raise and three callers 10/20 = \$3.10 25 = \$4.25 PSB on flop and two callers 10/20 = \$9.30 25 = \$12.75 PSB on turn and one caller 10/20 = \$27.90 25 = \$38.25 PSB on river and one caller 10/20 = \$83.70 25 = \$114.75 ... See what I mean? To bet just a *little* bit more preflop makes a significant difference by the end, because there are fewer numbers from which to choose. That's why I ask what a typical stop loss is for this crew. If it's \$80, then 25c is probably fine. But if it's \$40 or \$60, then 10/20c will keep the game going longer.

As a rule of thumb, in short-handed cash games do I buy-in for more, equal or less ammount compared to what the fish buys-in ? Last edited by glc3; 07-12-2012 at 02:30 PM.

You should be playing .05/.10 if this is the case. Otherwise, like pfapfap said, it will be a short game.

If you think you have a skill advantage, you want to be the biggest stack at the table. This helps you take maximum advantage of your opponents' post-flop mistakes.

In this case, what value shall I assign to each chip colour ?

From your own experience, would you say we will have an overall better casual time if we stick to a .05c/.10c cash game or would a short-handed SitNGo be more enjoyable to them ? Since most of them are new-comers I am looking forward to them having fun so they come back again later. Your advice will be a lot appreciated.

Posts: 20,314 Re: 6-max NLHE cash game Tournaments are always more popular, because everybody has the same at risk. I'd do a \$10 S&G, and even give everybody two "rebuy chips" that they can use if they go bust. No cost for the rebuy, just two more free chances. You don't even have to run it like a real tournament, just set up the blinds and let them play. Increase them when you feel like it. If they're new, they'll go broke soon enough anyway. If it's getting long, then just say, "Okay, now we're going to double the blinds every ten minutes from here 'til the end!" Or if you want more structure, play around with http://blindvalet.com/ Have fun!

Nobody likes agonizing over what to do about a 75-cent raise, but in a tournament, the \$ are abstracted. If they're really new, and going all-in too easily, you might make it a rebuy tournament, or at least a 2nd-chance structure. Or limit betting. Then do a cash game afterwards. Limit cash game is highly recommended.
