For those of you who do play in raked games. . . .
- I am interested to find out what type of things would draw you to come play at a raked home game (either Hold'em or PLO)
- What things stand out and what things will make you not come back. . .
- What are some features about the games you currently play in that you love and things that you hate. . .
- What do players want at their local raked game???
Thanks for your insight
I do not currently play in raked games outside of the casinos, but hypothetically, I'd answer with:
I'd play in these game if I felt safe, if the game offered things I couldn't regularly play (PLO, for example), if the game offered amenities or treatment that I didn't get at the casino, or the rake were better.
One room in town here (when it first opened, and the legal state of raked games in AZ was fresher) offered, essentially, a gofer tending to the game. He'd run to convenience stores, fast food, pick up dinner, all on the club's dime -- since the club's rake certainly covered it. Feeling like I was well treated goes far for me. I want to at least pretend I'm getting my money's worth.
Merely having a game isn't enough of a draw for me. I want a good game
