Anything still cool about poker?

Anything still cool about poker?
By Giuseppe

Poker may have lost its cool mystique with every one from your little sister to your coffee barista playing. Chances are even your favorite gas station attendant has cashed in a major tournament. With every Tom, Dick and Harry from the East village to San Fran(actually world wide now) hitting the felt you may ask yourself,  "is there anything still cool about poker? " The answer is yes, but you must now look beyond the game itself, beyond who is playing and open your eyes to the details. The tangible pieces that make up the game. Today we look at two of those such details in the most expensive poker chip set in the world and Stine game tables. Although this is a small glimpse at the set and tables try to imagine the craftsmanshift and rareity in these items.


  The first pic is of the newly released $7.5 million dollar poker set by Geoffrey Parker, maker of many very cool custom gaming products. It comes with 384 18kt white gold chips inlaid with sting ray skin. The edges of the chips are inlaid with whatever precious stones correspond with the color of the chip(diamond for white, ruby for red, etc.). The case is alligator skin with 18kt gold combonation locks and hinges.




The next pics are of poker tables by Stinegametable.com. Stine makes tables with the highest regaurd for quality that we have ever seen in a gaming table. You can fully customize your table from the felt to the shape and size.

  4. To play Texas Hold'em is much easier comparing to the other poker games. In Texas Hold'em all the players are using the same cards in order to make the winning hand. When you see the cards in front of you that gives you the opportunity to have a better view on the game comparing to the cases where all the cards are in your hand. In Texas Hold'em is also easier to find out what other players are holding and what are they trying to make with their cards. Players can look at each other and check which card the others are constantly looking at or their reaction when a card is flipped out in the middle of the table. situs judi online

  5. All in or fold? The concept of bluffing can be very easy or very difficult one to master. There are many ways to grasp this concept of bluffing, but that does not mean it will always be successful. Bluffing can reward you or poker online When playing free poker online is one thing, but if playing real money, I would be extra careful when it comes to bluffing.

  17. You may want to keep an eye out for the "pit" while you're in the casino. This area is usually off-limits to customers, but it's where the "pit boss" or supervisor monitors the activity in the casino.

  18. Facebook is a virtual world with a lot of apps. And they're all different and (sometimes) addictive in their own sense. Top Facebook apps like Farmville, Criminal Case, Texas HoldEm Poker and many more are loved by users, serving as a great past-time, and perhaps, the perfect distraction. Sure, staying online all day to play games is unhealthy and not recommended, but a little indulgence never hurts anyone. As long as you don't have any other work. Therefore, here's a list of the games you should try out if you're free, online and bored. Poker
