wouldnt do it for just one.

tworooks -- don't listen to them, just go ahead w/ it. I read an article this morning that said Michael Jackson likes to play cards w/ kids, but be careful, it said he's a real hustler. So maybe he would drive down to SD and play?
too soon

Re: My home casino

I just read this entire thread and let me just say -

Thank you Al Gore. If you had never invented the internet, I would have never gotten to experience the 41 pages of pure amazingness that was a thread started by a 17 year old who thought he could run his own casino in his mom's basement.

I applaud everyone who contributed to make this thread the single greatest thing on the internet. Even Maddox would be jealous.

I want to start my own cardroom type casino at my house. This would be full-on, real casino atmosphere for the players at the comfort of my home. I would provide NL Holdem ring games, as well as a variety of other poker games if demand proves necessary, and Blackjack tables. Also 2-3 nights a week I would be hosting tournaments. I want this to be profitable, so there will be rake and all that good stuff. I will give comps, typically drinks, free fast food, pizza, whatever, for my good customers. Also will sell this kind of stuff on site. I am not sure about getting professional dealers or not, still weighing the pros and cons of that. My questions for you readers: What should my rake structure be like, for say $50, $100, $200 NL ring games? Also, would any of you(San Diego area) be interested. The main problem going for me is Indian Casinos, because why would people come here when the casinos are around. Also, I am a minor. So this could easily just be an outlet for kids my age, but it would be good to get people who play higher limits. Also, there will be some dead money in there because of the fishiness level of some of the people who may be there(rich chaldean kids). So, would anyone in the San Diego area be interested? And if so, what limits would you play? Recomendations(sp?) that would make it feasible for you to want to come and play regularly. Thanks guys.
Dude, I could give a f&ck if it's illegal or not, DO NOT DO THIS. I don't care who you think your clientele is going to be. You will have people showing up and getting in that you absolutely do not want. The only way that anything like this can work is if the proprietor has an absolute monopoly on violence in and around the establishment. Legitimate casinos with government approval have a very good way of assuring that monopoly. Illegal casinos/cardrooms, ALMOST ALWAYS BACKED OR APPROVED BY A WELL FUNDED CRIMINAL ELEMENT, also have ways of assuring it.

How do you plan on assuring it?

In summary, this idea is INSANELY STUPID.

All the mid-stakes broke down. Now they just spread $2/4 and $150/300.
