We had something come up this weekend and I am not sure what the proper way is to handle it. Background - We have a house rule for our cash game on league nights (and for most part anytime we play in the neighborhood). 1st table = .50/1 NLHE $40 min $100 max 2nd table = 1/2 NLHE $60 min $200 max but we try to keep it below $150 We had issue with people buying in for $200 for a .50/1 game and then bullying from the beginning which was scaring off the people who wanted to play but were buying in for $40. They had no issue losing $40 or $80 a night but they started to fell like they were giving it away, ironically those players have been scared off anyways. So Saturday night we have 1 cash table so far, .50/1with the avg buyin at 60 and we had 4 rebuys for $100. Two bigger chips stacks (at about $300 and $450) while the rest were $60 - $100. We are 8 players at the table and a new player wants to buyin for $200. I tell him $100 max as I am the banker and the rules guy. He claims that it is not fair with the 2 big chip stacks and throws a semi-fit (he complains about everything). Luckily the 2nd table opens and he plays there but it got me thinking. Do I need to adjust the max buyin after play has started? if so at what point?
