Poker is one of the most popular games in the world at the moment, generally being played in the casinos of the gambling havens of Las Vegas as well as Monaco. However, the game has also seen quite a rise in popularity that play at home, using cards and chips. And if you are serious about the game, having a poker table at home is an absolute must. The design of the table is such that it not only makes the game extremely realistic for the players but also makes playing the game extremely enjoyable and exciting.
The usually covers of the poker tables are made from baize, which is nothing but a type of felt material or a speed cloth, no matter how you put it as. The reason for using such a material as the table top is for the sole reason that they have a coat of Teflon that makes the chips and the cards very easy to slide across the table. Apart from that, it prevents the chips from getting scratches and makes it easier to lift the cards from the table top and stop it from getting bends or folds on the sides when too much effort is put into lifting it.
There are plenty of different types of poker tables that have been made available in the market nowadays but the categories to which they are limited are mainly two – a folding poker table and a permanent poker table. If you are looking at a temporary solution for your poker table problems, then a folding poker table, which can folded and kept in any corner of your house is a good option. On the other hand, if you have enough room, then you can easily opt for the permanent poker tables.
There are mainly three types of poker tables – octagonal, oval and round. Whether you have folding poker table or a permanent poker table, you should be aware that a spick and span looking poker table heightens the excitement of the game. And as a result, in order to make your game more enjoyable, you have to take good care of your poker table. The natural look of the poker table that you get must be preserved so that the beauty of the game is not lost amidst a shabby looking table.
And in order to keep the table safe from wear and tear, there are some pointers that you must follow. First and foremost, you must find a proper place to keep the table and not stack it anywhere you see an iota of room. Moreover, dust the table top on a regular basis and not let dust accumulate on top of the table. Furthermore, in order to make the table long lasting, make sure that the legs of the table do not come in contact with water or dirt. Just keeping regular tabs of the wear and tear on your poker table is enough and make sure if there are signs of wear, you do not wait to get it fixed.
