Changing stakes - bigger spread
We have played our dealers choice games with a $0.25 - $1 spread.
I keep thinking about making it $0.10 - $1, to encourage more "creative" bets, among other reasons (more chips on the table).
I also think that folks blow through $20 in no time with $0.25 - $0.50 NL. Moving to $0.20-0.40 would allow for some more specific bets/raises.
Does that make any sense?
Another motive... to determine chip sets for the future. I can do $0.10 with whites, reds, greens and blacks ($10), sticking with casino themed values.
If we stick with $0.25, my future set(s) will require greens, blacks and beyond to stick with a casino theme.
Finally, I was thinking about using reds (0.05), greens, blacks ($1) and beyond, again to get more chips on the table. I do NOT want to drop stakes down to $0.05, but using nickels and quarters could still play.
I've got a bunch of dice chips, plenty of whites and reds, some green, more black. Blues become useless, although we have used them in the past (white - quarter, red - dollar, blue -$5), I'd like to go more traditional.
I suspect I'll grab a set of China Clay in the (near?) future, and have bothered a few folks selling good (not premium) sets.
