I’m getting ready to host a cash game for the first time and I’m not sure what level the players will be comfortable at. I don’t think that most players will know what level they are comfortable at themselves, as most are not serious player and only have played in neighborhood or bar tourneys. I don’t want to put anybody off with a game that sounds too expensive, but I don’t want to have stakes so low that it’s boring. I’d like to be at 25¢/50¢ with $20/50 min/max buy in, but I’m afraid that too many people will buy in for the minimum, thinking that $50 is more than they want to risk for a night of fun. So I was thinking of starting out at 10¢/25¢ and a $10/$25 min/max buy in so that a relatively small buy in of $25, which I think more players will be willing to start at, would still give them 100 blinds for a stronger starting stack and they could potentially play longer. My questions are, apart from just staying at the limits set for the night and setting new limits for the next game, if it’s decided that the blinds are too low, can we up the stakes to 25¢/50¢ by simply coloring up and buying in for more cash? Do we need to cash out and re-cash in at the new stakes? Are there any pitfalls to be aware of? How would you handle a situation like this?
