Stop Tournament after certain Time. Say 3 hours and use ICM to calculate Pay-Outs. Play two SNG's instead of one

or

Use a second Chance Token. Everyone gets a token. Say buy in is 10000 chips. Get knocked out before end of level six then your token acts like a free rebuy.
If you still have a token after level six then it is treated as a 10k add-on.

Play PLO 8 or better.

With one minor detail:

When no low is possible (flop, turn or river, any time no low is possible) the game immediately morphs into pot limit.

Re: i need ideas !!!

PLO8 morphs into pot limit?? I don't get it. Do you mean "if the flop doesn't make a low possible, there's no low this hand, even if the turn and/or river make a low possible?"

Or did you mean limit Omaha 8, but it goes up to pot-limit if no low is possible?

Neither of these make much sense to me. What's the advantage? If you meant something else, what and why?

I like it to.
When I do home tournament I kinda feel bad when someone donks out way early. Especially because a lot of friends drive a long way.

When we do rebuys seems like always the same people making a rebuy which makes casual players sour after awhile & stop coming.

The Token lets people play longer if they donk out early because they can use there token as rebuy.
But also rewards people who play well early with an add-on.

OP, home game STTs are complete bingo fests, and there's no practical way around that. If that's not your thing, it's time to drag your people into cash games.

[QUOTE=Garick;54937237]...

...

Sorry, life tilt temporarily, family illness situation.

What I intended to write was 5/10 or 10/20 Omaha 8 reverts to PLO hi only when a low will not be possible during the hand.

Example flop KJ9r - no low will be possible

Turn KJ77 - no low will be possible

Flop 348 remains 5/10 or 10/20 Omaha 8 as a low will be possible.

Turn KK34 remains 5/10 or 10/20 Omaha 8 as a low still might be possible.

River 678KK remains 5/10 or 10/20 Omaha 8 as a low will be possible.

Re: i need ideas !!!

Sorry to hear about the family situation, and hope whoever is ill recovers quickly.

So what is the advantage of a LO8 game that converts to a PLO game whenever no low is possible?

It's usually harder for limit players at any level to switch mental gears to PLO (essentially playing for stacks much of the time) - and this way they have to do it mid-hand.

Example - seven handed Omaha 8 with 2 and 5 blinds, one raise and five way to the flop, pot is 10 BB's, $50 no rake. Not uncommon for a home game. If it was a 10-20 home game now the pot is 10BB's, $100.

Flop action in limit Omaha 8? Usually. Before the turn the pot is often 12-15 BB's. Villains chase the low, the straight, the flush, or whatever. Comes the turn and, if the low is still possible, more BB's go in ... but in a limit home game what are the stack sizes? Enough to play a pot limit turn and/or river?

What often happens is the low becomes impossible on the turn and the flush/straight chasers are so short stacked (until they win a few hands and then it's "game on") that they shove with just the river to come. Doesn't matter who wins, it augments the action more often than not.

And with that extra action, a Hero who already plays pot limit or no limit should have an edge over Villains who might not be that familiar with pot limit or no limit strat.

At least that was the case in my home game way back when I wasn't yet a geezer.

Re: i need ideas !!!

home games are supposed to be fun and you have a limited crew. so re buys are a must. and usually the re buy person is just the person you want re buying to add to the pot.

if you dont want re buys because a junk hand may break you, you dont understand things that need thinking about.

Re: i need ideas !!!

Not to beat a dead horse, but my own personal experience is that switching from SNG to cash games was great for my home game. People can play whatever style they choose and we keep the stakes comfortable depending on the players. We play anywhere from .10/.20 up to .50/1/2 and some of the funnest games have been the smallest stakes. There is something for everyone in cash.
