    I agree that the host should absorb the loss, but I don't get his thinking. Isn't the host usually the last one to cash out?

    I guess at his game, the house always gets paid.

    a million years ago, i played a small 3-6 limit-game with a bunch of donkeys every monday... once a month, they jacked the limits up to 5-10 and had a bigger game...

    the smaller game: i held my own... maybe broke even or won a lil on avg...

    the bigger game, i crushed it each and every week because those donkeys chased a lot less...

    anyway, it got to the point when i dropped out of the smaller game and just went to the big game once / month...

    couple players bitched about that and said i had to play every week or i wouldn't be invited back...

    so, i never got invited back :tired:

    hahaa! sore-ass losers... i wouldn't sweat it... there will be other games...

    hey! host your own game :)

    PS did you hit & run when you were up $290? that IS a bannishable offense in the home game circuit - esp if you showed up super late

    No, I didn't hit and run. Basically, I began playing there sometime around the New Year. I let him know a month into my job that I would not be able to play very often. He stopped sending me an invite via text message.

    They were already playing when I called to see if there was a game. (The start of the game varies based upon people's schedules.) Usually, the game gets underway sometime between 4p.m and 6p.m. I phoned him around 6, and they had been playing since 3:30. The host decided to end the game at 9:30. I would have kept playing, but we were four handed at that point, and I think the other players had enough poker for the night.

    What I shitty host. Isn't he the one cashing people out? It doesn't even matter if the player was UP $330. The last player to cash out or any player for that matter, has chips to prove that he is owed that amount. That would make the shortfall the responsibility of the house. The mistake was made before this guy cashed out. If players cashing out are held accountable for the mistakes of the house I wouldn't play at that game. It pisses me off just thinking about it.

    The pettiness is what bothered him. Almost everyone who goes there to play is prepared to lose $100 or more. He could not believe the host would stick him for $25 after he had lost over $300.

    He rarely missed a game, and he always bought enough cash so that he could buy in multiple times if necessary. There are not many people on the host's invite list who will continue to play after they have dropped $100.

    I've never heard of a host doing that. I've volunteered to eat some of the shortage when I felt bad for a host, but he didn't ask...what a turd.

    So I did get an invite from the host a while ago. Won $75 and haven't heard from him since. I know from my run-ins with other players that his game is still active.

    I am playing in a $50 MTT later this week, which he attends from time to time. There is a $1/$2 table for players who bust out of the tournament. Hoping to see him there. It was through this game that he invited me to his.

    Ugly night. Bubbled. Raised with J,10 from the button. (23BB's) The big blind (Chip leader with around 38-40BB's) called with 8,9 suited. Flop: J,10,7 rainbow.

    Couldn't find the discipline to fold.

    Host, or whoever takes the cash for chips, ALWAYS absorbs any shortfall when cashing out. Period.

    I have fond memories from the various home games that I have played in. Being excluded presumably because the host preferred a softer game left me with conflicted feelings.

    I found out in April that the host went into a downward spiral after maxing out his credit cards playing blackjack at the casino late last year. He walked away from his mortgage, and racked up two domestic abuse charges.

    He has quit playing poker.
