A friend and I tried to start a weekly poker game but attendance was too low to sustain it. My friend was the main driver behind it, and he only invited 7 people because he didn't want the game to be too large. We ended up with 3 both times we played. It sounds like your approach of having twice as many people "on the list" as you want to show up is pretty successful.

Another problem we had was finding people who were interested in playing poker for money. We have basically the same circle of friends and aquaintances, but very few are willing to give us^H^H^H^H^H^H^H risk their money playing cards. I, personally, am wary of widening the circle to "friends of friends" because I don't want some poker shark showing up one night and cleaning us all out.

How did you get your group started?
