Texas hold em has seen a rise in popularity in recent years and as a result, there are many televised poker tournaments and the game is more present than ever. A poker game is a timeless way to relax and grab a few drinks with friends while doing an enjoyable activity. Hosting a poker party does not have to be an expensive ordeal though so here are a few tips to ensure that your next home poker tournament is fun!


Play with a new deck of cards. Cards are ubiquitous and in many situations you can even get them for free from companies trying to promote their own name. Playing with a new deck of cards will ensure that the cards do not stick together and you end up with wrongly dealt cards. If you can’t get a deck for free, there are plenty of cheap poker supplies that you can get either from a store or even cheaper from online. Aside from the card however, there is also the matter of the chips. Usually these are handled quite often so it is important to get high quality chips that are made evenly. I remember playing cards at a friend’s house who had horribly made chips that did not stack evenly and so we were still forced to count every chip. It was not an enjoyable experience.


To make the experience an even better one for your friends, we also recommend you get a decent quality poker table. You can find all kinds of even cheap poker tables that feature cup holders and a space to stash away some snacks. Poker is a slow paced game of patience so it is best to have some finger foods on hand to feed those hungry friends of yours! Have a place with some soft music, some finger foods and some poker supplies and your next poker get together is sure to be a success!
