I’m pretty used to playing with creeps - tough to play much poker and avoid them.
That's a profound weakness of me as a player and the very reason I could never be a pro, even if I were a lot more talented.
I just can't play any game with / against people I dislike or feel disgust for.
Probably, the reason being that I could afford emotionally only losing (especially money) to people I respect.
:rolleyes:

Know how I know you don’t have casinos where you live?

We do have one, 20 winding miles up the top of a mountain.
Minimum stakes offered are 1/2E, so, in average American "buying power" (pocket feel), 3/6 NLHE.

And, to complete my answer, I have also played in superficially legal card-rooms, offering .50/.50E and 1/1E stakes.
I 've been up 50E on the whole, but won't do it again, 'cause the opponents were mostly Albanian criminals out of jail, either on a furlow or just released.
And the rule of "either Greek or English" at the table was NOT observed. The criminals were allowed to talk among them in Albanian.

Did this help to reduce you laughs, @raynmanas and @Highli99 ?

Have you given him any reason to think you would be down for co-organizing a high-stakes illegally raked poker game at what is effectively a brothel, with a total stranger as a partner?

I plan on having a $0.25/$0.50 cash game this Saturday, and I just sent out the invitations.
I invited this player, who I would consider one of the tightest and brings one of the least amounts to many of my games (all of my games are $0.25/$0.50).
He called me shortly after I sent him the invite, and a very strange and concerning conversation took place.
He asked if I could help him get a much bigger game going (he knows that I sometimes play in some $1/$2 games with some players that play even higher than that). After I declined, he put someone else on the phone, that proceeded to tell me his plans to have a high stakes raked game with prostitutes and private bedrooms.

I am very curious to see how you guys would handle this.

To be clear, I made it clear that I was not interested. But should I not allow this player at my games anymore after this? I am leaning towards this option right now
Oh my god. Who would do something so disgusting.... What's his contact info so I can block him

Man, you really screwed that guy, putting his great idea out on the Internet. I bet at least 5 people are already making money off this since you posted it.
