      usually its 0.50 - 1, if its anything like my casino you can buyin from 20 - 100 on these tables, but be warned unless you buyin with atleast 50 you will find it hard. the raises are much bigger in live poker as apposed to online poker. if you have any questions ive played alot of live poker and i will be happy to help you out.

      Depends on the casino.

      Lowest I've seen was NL100. But mostly the lowest tables were NL200.

      £1-£1 is normally the lowest at grovenor casinos with £40 min buying, rakes pretty high but people play pretty bad from my very little experience

      at the grosvenor i go too as i said the lowest is 50-1 it is however usually 1-1 as everyone has said. in my experience this can get very deep, its been 2k deep at times. but play tight and pick the right spots and youll do just fine.

      incase your wondering thats the g casino in portsmouth

      10% is pretty much standard for a casino, what you need to look for is what the rake caps at.. for example if you are playing NL100 something respectable would be a 10% rake with 3$ cap. I play with this rake and its very beatable

      Heck, you guys are lucky to be playing NL100. In my country, the lowest we get is NL200, and peoples raises are just sick! It's just as if they have an unlimited amount of money in their pockets.

      For example, last week I've been to Vienna, and the smallest blinds were 1-1. And people mostly played quite tight. Interesting.

      No, this just means that your country is wealthy which is a good thing
