Well the good news is they can only do that with each other's repeated cooperation ("bet!" "raise!" "reraise!" "cap!") and although they might drag some innocent bystanders along with them at first, pretty soon people will learn to get out of the way lest they get whipsawed.
Well...you pretty much hit the problem on the head. So now add Stan, Rob, and John D into the mix. All solid players, but pretty aggressive. They love to engage Gunny and Rich and before you know it.....somebody's on their 10th rebuy. :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

Here is the thing though....
Every player has a hard stop (quitting point), but for some that hard stop is a lot different than for others. I'll give 2 examples that are at the opposite end of the spectrum. Player Nitty Ned and Wild Will. If Ned loses $100 more than 2 or 3 times in a row he will stop coming and Will is not only wild gambler, but he also is an attorney that makes a lot of money, is not married and doesn't mind blowing a few thousand every week or two.

You have to read your players and try and figure out where that quitting point is and adjust either the limit, the game or both to suit your crowd so that your players are not busting out for good and never coming back.
Good news/bad news is...my aggressive/bust out players (1) are both Marines, so they don't know the word quit and (2) they never piss and moan about their losses; or occasional big wins. Great group of peeps who enjoy drinking, playing poker and/or gambling. :)

Well in this case you have to sort of guess a little. Factors that come into play are how often does your game go, do those players also play elsewhere, how much disposable income do your players have, how much would you guess they might lose in a month or year before quitting permanently etc. Adjust the game accordingly...
