We had a lot of comments on our last blog entry from players wanting more suggestions for their Poker Rooms and or Man Caves, so without any further delay here are a couple of ideas for you.

The private Man Caves we have had the privilege of being invited to range from tiny rooms to large open spaces that could fit several poker tables as well as maybe a craps table, a pool table, and even a full bar. Therefore, rather than dictate the perfect design for yours,  we’ll just give you a few insights as to how to furnish your perfect man cave.

First and foremost for any poker-themed room would, of course, be the perfect table, and that would obviously depend on your budget. So, we’ll begin today with some ideas for a medium- budget room:

The Ultimate Poker TableThe Ultimate Poker Table is most deserving of its name for anybody on a budget. It’s a beautiful 10-player positions table with 3″ stainless steel cup holders. Unlike your lesser grade folding leg tables, this folding leg table features a  steel welded frame that will support up to 200 lbs. So even if some of your players get a little out of hand, go on tilt and bounce off the table, it will take most, if not all of their abuse. And if someone gets careless and spills a drink, you have nothing to worry about. The surface is completely removable, so you can easily resurface and upgrade the felt. All that, and it is delivered to your front door at $729.00.

Our Lumen HD Poker TableThe Lumen HD Poker Table, priced at just under $2000, is a kidney-bean shaped table measuring 101.5in x 46in x 30.5in (armrest) / 28in (playing surface) with 11 positions (10 players + a dealer). It has integrated LED lighting, optional cup holders, optional chip tray and optional drop box as well optional built in USB Ports with Solid wood Black or Mahogany Napa Pedestal Legs, and can be fully customized with your own graphics. The Lumen HD is a casino quality poker table that will stand up to 24/7 play and countless compliments.  Great table, perfect for that medium-end budget.

1000 count Claysmith Desert Heat chip setThen, of course, you’ll need some poker chips. The perfect set for this set-up,  the 1000 count Claysmith “Desert Heat” chip set in an acrylic carrying case, comes in at just slightly more than $200.00.

You can then decorate your room, again depending on your budget, with a large screen TV, maybe a few poker signs, a cool sound system to play your favorite tunes, a bar with a mini fridge, and you’re ready to host some friendly poker games.

The Global Poker Index, which honors the best and brightest in the poker world, will once again be handing out the coveted hardware for the fourth straight year. As American Poker Awards President, Alexandre Dreyfus, said, “We are very excited to return to the Los Angeles area for a fourth year to reward the most deserving poker players, industry leaders and media members in the business”.

“As always, Dreyus continued, there will be several already-confirmed winners: the top male and top female player on the GPI’s points ranking system, along with the American Player of the Year. This year, Adrian Mateos and Kristen Bicknell will take home the male and female honors, respectfully, although the Spaniard Mateos will collect his award at the European Poker Awards if he isn’t in California for the American version.”

The ceremony, to be held at Andaz West Hollywood rather than at SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills as before, has been scheduled for Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. If you feel motivated to attend the event, please follow this link. More details will certainly follow and we’ll keep you posted.
