The classic home poker game involves a group of friends having a fun social evening. "Friends" is the key word. Remember, these are your brothers and sisters, chosen for life. You don't want to fall out over a hand of Texas Holdem. Life really is too short for that kind of crap.

Love of money is the root of all evil...

Ask yourself why you are hosting home poker games. If it's for the money, perhaps you should look for strangers to fleece, instead of your friends.
