Thank both for the information! Does player experience factor into this at all? I'll be playing with 6 people total and most of them will be complete noobs (they might know most of the rules, maybe not) and/or haven't played in 10 years. I expect to be the most knowledgable person there (I have vague understandings of ranges, betting strategies, etc.), but I also haven't played in 10+ years. Does deeper or shallower stack benefit inexperienced players?
In general deeper benefit experienced players. Maybe you just suggest $10 buy in "to start" for their own good, and if they get comfortable and want to raise the cap to 20 they can. Players often underestimate how quick a whole stack can go in NLHE. They may think they are comfortable buying in for 20, but are they comfortable doing 1-2 rebuys after that? If not, it's a sign the buy-in is too high and your game may break early if the wrong players get broke.
