In order to create a casino-like atmosphere at home and enjoy the ultimate poker experience, you need to have the proper gear. Poker tables are the cornerstone of any successful home game and if you want to give your favorite game a professional appearance, you can’t afford to be cheap and buy subpar tables. Depending on your budget and the number of players that you expect to host, you should purchase a less expensive entry-level poker table, or aim for luxury ones. As long as you know what to look for, even a poker table costing no more than a couple of hundred dollars can make an excellent investment.
Manufacturers have diversified their offer and even if you wish for a custom built poker table, they should be able to rise to your expectations. Anything can be subject to customization, including colors, style and upgrade options. A full sized table has to be roomy enough to accommodate 10 players and even a couple of glasses, so that you won’t need to add additional chairs and coffee tables. Stainless steel cup holders are a must, given the fact that many players get so immersed into the game that they tend to forget about their drinks. Accidents are inevitable though, so having table with waterproof speed cloth would have a lot.
You don’t have to be an expert or to spend a lot of time in casinos to notice the differences between a cheap poker table and one made from fine oak wood. The real wood bases matching the chip track and high density arm resting bumpers are the kind of fine touches that make the difference between a regular table and a premium one. Tables need to be easy to fold, so that when they are not in use the owner can store them to save space and fortunately the latest products come with steel folding legs.
