You Need Tables, We Got Tables

You decide to host a poker game, and in preparation you head to the store to purchase mass quantities of beer. You stop at the grocery store to get munchies and hot sausage…and while you’re there you grab a few decks of cards and a big box of plastic poker chips.

And once you get home and put the beer on ice and the sausage in the slow-cooker, you dig through the laundry for the greenish tablecloth you used last Christmas and drape it over the dining-room table. It hangs all the way to the floor but, you know, it looks…OK.

No, it does not. It does not look OK. Nor do plastic poker chips feel or sound OK. They sound like plastic. And no matter how how tasty that hot sausage is, your poker game isn’t going to be as much fun as it could have been, had you and your buddies had invested a few bucks in the proper equipment.

Equipment you can find at, where they have a wide selection of poker tables, chips, and other goodies. Some of the tables are pretty pricey, and some aren’t. If you’ve got a pretty steady group who plays buying a table and chips can be an investment that pays off for decades. Everyone could pony up a few bucks every time you play, and over the course of a year you might have enough to upgrade from the dining room table to one with actual green felt and cushy leather handrails.

And believe me, if you’re playing at a real poker table with real poker chips, you and your friends will want to play a lot more often. And since you’re by far the best player in the gang, you’ll be raking in the cash. So it’s a win-win proposition.
