Are you an avid poker player? Do you enjoy playing with friends every weekend? Do you lack the casino ambience in your apartment or game room where you play? If the answer to all these questions is an emphatic ‘yes’, then there is just one solution for you – a new poker table. There is a reason why poker has gone on to become one of the most popular games in the world at the moment, be it in the casinos or between friends and that is because of the ambience it creates and not having a poker table and using a random piece of home furniture as its substitute is just ludicrous.
There are various kinds of poker tables that are available in the market, some are flashy, some are traditional, some cheap, some extremely costly, some huge where as some others are moderate in size, but the functionality of the poker tables remain the same on all. There is a layer of felt on top of the table which has all the markings and other important aspects of the game, and the layer of felt itself is extremely smooth – hence, the dealer can slide the cards across the table quite easily and the players will also not have any problems with lifting them off the table and will do so without folding the edges.
Just close your eyes for one second and imagine the scenario – few of your friends gathered around a poker table in your game room, with the light dimmed, the air smelling smoky, snacks laid before you and a dealer with the cards getting on with the game – this is perhaps the most favorite sight that comes to the mind of any poker player who loves to play the game, be it professionally or with friends. And for that imagination to be turned into reality, a poker table is an absolute must to not only create the ambience, but also enhance the enjoyment and excitement which comes with playing the game with a proper poker table and not the dinner or coffee table.
Just like you will not be eating dinner on a coffee table or your drawing table, you will not like to play poker on random home furniture and it is probably best if you go out and buy a poker table. Depending on your budget as well as the room that you have in your apartment, you can buy a foldable poker table, table top poker tables or the full sized ones. A foldable poker table will cost you anywhere between $ 300 and $ 500, a table top will be available to you for a price between $ 175 and $ 300 and the most expensive full sized tables could be available for as high as $ 1,500 and could go even higher, depending on how you choose to customize the table.
Get yourself a proper poker table of any kind and you will have the time of your life when you come together for a game.
