I originally posted this under Home Poker, but feel I will get more responses here....
Should we increase max buy ins over the course of the night?
Friendly game with a mix of very good and average players. $.50/$1 NL. Initial max buyin and all subsequent rebuys and top offs are $50 (50BB). Over the course of the night a couple of stacks can get up to $3-400. Someone gets felted and feels that the $50 max buy in is too low to be play effectively.
I know in most casinos that the initial and all rebuys are for 100BB. Is this a hard and fast rule? Why is it 100BB? Should we just follow the 100BB "rule" for all rebuys and initial buyins?
Should we allow rebuyers a rebuy up to half or even to the largest stack on the table?
Any consequences to allowing that large a rebuy? I know there are but want other opinions both pro and con.
The only real consequence is that people can lose a ton more and perhaps the game could become not so friendly. Take a poll and see what the players want and make it known that whoever runs the home game makes the final decision.
