Hosting the Perfect Home Poker Game is something that is on the minds of seemingly millions of Americans. The overwhelming popularity of Texas Hold Em and Casino Games in general over the past number of years has driven many to try to Host a Poker Game that has the same feel as their favorite casino poker room or something they saw on t.v. This combined with the recent issues surrounding playing poker online drive increasingly more groups of individuals to Host a game of their own.

As a way to host a poker (a cool way to improve) game, you will need certain matters:

The best quality group of poker chips the most common are made of a clay/composite material and weigh 11.5 grams each. Additionally, there are clay chips Paulson and Nexgen that will be found in casinos that will be bought for home use as well.

An excellent themed playing surface. While you may use any table, having a poker felt layout could be a great beginning. The next phase up could be to buy a Folding Poker Table, that can seat up to 10 players, and also can come with arm rests and cup holders. The most obvious benefit to this kind of table is the fact that you may have a professional looking table through the game, and after the game is over it may either be folded and put away, or sent on to the Home where the game will be next time. Eventually, for those of you with the space as well as the desire, you may purchase a Full Size Casino Grade Table….NICE!

Playing Cards. You shall need at least 2 decks of cards. By using 2 decks, one can continually be shuffled and ready for the next hand. You have got many options for cards, although the main difference is in the material they can be made of. The very best quality cards are made of a pvc material. Copag and Kem will be the most popular pvc cards in the marketplace. The advantages are that you may spill a drink on them and just wipe it clean and they are much more durable overall. They may be higher priced, but because you won't need to keep getting new cards every week…they may be the most effective value.

Buttons. You will at least need a dealer button, but should also get a missed blind, big blind, and little blind buttons. If you play in a game with a kill, in which case you will need to get a kill button as well.

Tournament Timer. This is going to help you keep track of when to change the blinds/ante. You also have the option to set a timer for tounament teirs. These range between the very basic to the elegant.
