This is hilarious. All it's going to take is for one kid to lose his money or one disgruntled parent to find out. Although I doubt you're going get any bigger than a weekend game between your friends with cordial and fairy bread.

Re: My home casino

Prison is easy. All you have to do is get a cell on the top tier and throw the biggest, ugliest motherf'er off of that tier on your first day.

After that, it's all applesauce and cigarettes.

Re: My home casino

Ok,

I have been just about falling off my chair laughing for the last 10 min reading this!

Unfortunately tworooks has no idea of why we older (wiser) guys are laughing at this idea.

Tworooks, I am going to give you a bit of advice. I am sure you won't listen, but I feel compelled to give it anyway. DO NOT PROCEED WITH THIS IDEA! Seriously this can only end badly.

nuff said from someone who ain't 17 anymore.

Re: My home casino

I live in San Diego and I'm going to say that THIS IS THE DUMBEST IDEA I HAVE EVER HEARD OF. There is no demand for card rooms in San Diego, especially one run by a 17 year old. Good luck getting your buddies to pony up $200 for a NL game night after night, because no one over 20 will be coming to your "casino". Btw, do you have any idea the kind of player base it takes to keep a card game running? The answer is, no, you have no clue, because you're 17.

This thread has a loooong way to go before it beats the Pattern Map thread. However, I think this has the makings of an instant classic.

unfortunately i would probably have to sell drinks, because the tables wouldnt be huge rake makers
why not just avoid the whole poker thing and get into the liquor business then? most people have to get proper licensing to sell liquor, but since youre only 17 you wont have to worry about all of that.

Re: My home casino

Please excuse my tone, but you are an idiot. This usually goes away with age, but just in case you're predisposed to not becoming less of an idiot like everyone else, let me tell you one thing:

If you go through with this, you will be an even bigger idiot.

If you have this much enthusiasm for making money, why not DO IT LEGALLY? Word spreads quick about this kind of stuff and you're opening yourself to legal and financial liabilities.

You are assuming the following:
1. You won't get robbed
2. The police will never come
3. You will recoup your initial costs
4. You won't get beaten up
5. Everyone will behave themselves (alcohol, fighting)

I could continue, but I don't really feel I need any more examples for someone who is trying to start an underground club by getting potential clients on an INTERNET MESSAGE BOARD! GO GO GO GO!

Don't be an idiot.

Re: My home casino

What kind of chips are you getting? I want to go the night you open and get 300 $1 chips. I figure if the place gets raided and I have the only 300 that didn't get taken, I could possibly have a gold mine!!

Yeah, but there will be no collector value for chips from some 16 year old's home game, especially if it stays open for a grand total of 2 days. I'd just keep a few for humor value, in that case.

I'd like to know this so I can buy some off the same internet site and bring my own freeroll to your casino.

Just to add a note about this. This thread reached the topic of our Danish irc poker channel. (#poker.dk on Quakenet).

Btw your whole project is just a teenage illusion and it's ok to have those when you're 17. But start playing poker or get into legit business instead.

Re: My home casino

TwoRooks,

Update us all. We are on the edge of our seats to see what the outcome of your little enterprise is.

I think that from the responses it is pretty easy to tell what most would suggest you do......nothing.

What have you decided to do?

Re: My home casino

I will give you some real good advice, if you are going through with this.

Start once a week. One table. $100 or $200 buy in NLHE. Charge a session fee, every half hour, of $2 or $3. Thats $40-$60 an hour.

10 players max, to limit exposure. Get a dealer. A friend or two who will do it for tips. Females can usually be persuaded.

Keep it quiet.

Re: My home casino

Please let us know how this turns out. You have given me the strength and courage that I needed to finally go ahead with my own dream. I am going to open a bank in my basement. I have really been struggling, trying to decide if I should make it a state bank or a full-on "NATIONAL" one. I think I'm going National. There's more money in that. Thank you tworooks for finally getting me off the fence and in action mode. If you ever need an unsecured loan, contact me.
