My group of poker buddies want to look at mixing up our nights with a few spread limit games. Currently we play $0.25-$0.50 limit, with typical buy-ins at around $20 to $25. If we move to spread limit, what should the spread and blinds be for a $25 buy-in? Is there a rule of thumb for buy-in size relative to spread or blinds? For example in NL, the typical buy-in is around 100-150 big blinds. In limit it's 20+ big bets. (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on either of those btw). My only experience with spread is one night at the $1 to $5 game at O'Sheas which had $1/$1 blinds. Everyone seemed to buy-in between $50 and $100. There aren't spread games here in Australian casinos so I don't have any basis for comparison.
