    So much truth in what your saying there. In my daily 5/5 game refuse to be close buddies and talk strategy with this player pool. The reasons are for what you have stated.
    I prefer to use my energy being nice to the rec players, having them coming saying hi to me and wanting to play on my table

    I've been very focused on getting into better and better private games 2-5 (some 5/10) over the last few months. Not to be a d*ck, but it reminds me of guys complaining that can't get into the club when they are rolling 4 guys deep... no value. I have a lot of thoughts on how to network, specifically in the local dealer network but I wanted to touch on the amenities you mentioned.

    At my typical Friday game:

    - Huge house
    - Quiet, themed LOTR poker room
    - Chill room with comfy couches to enjoy a drink
    - Full bar, endless redbulls to juices
    - Very cute dealers and massage girls
    - Catered food
    - Good mix of people, controlled invite
    - Uncapped buyin on their 1/3 and 2/5 table
    - 15 min from my house

    Why would I ever want to go back into the casino environment? I've played a lot of homegames over the last year, however, invite only at these nicer locations have me sold.

    As for the higher rake, I'm paying for all the items I listed above as a form of a better casino poker experience.
