Normally I like to write my blogs about poker-related topics that interest me, and thus, hopefully, interest some of you as well. An exciting tournament (like the WSOP), a favorite poker super- star, a new poker movie, poker legislation and of course the Global Poker League have been featured among my numerous blog posts.

But every once in a while, I have to stop and remind myself what the Texas Poker Store is REALLY about. Because despite the value added by our (almost famous) TPS Blog, along with the bios and video clips of the great poker legends, the Texas Poker Store is about selling quality poker supplies at competitive prices and providing outstanding customer service to our customers. Yup, that’s right. It’s an online store, and like every other store, it’s about cutting a great deal for all the poker players out there . . .  as well as for us. With that in mind, I’m breaking with tradition in order to show you some of our best-selling poker tables. Who knows. . . they just might inspire you to become one of our many loyal fans and satisfied customers.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions.

Basic price is $1,999.00 with free shipping. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. Check it out at http://www.texaspokerstore.com/Lumen-Poker-Table

As promised in our last blog, we continue now with a few more of our favorite poker playing celebrities. The poker bug is capable of biting anyone, whether you’re a well known celebrity, or just a poker junkie. It doesn’t care if you’re a film star, a television regular, a sports legend or just famous for being famous. And it doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, man or woman, as long as you have enough chips for the minimum buy-in, you’re welcome.

Ray RomanoWe’ll start with one of my all-time TV comics from “Everyone Loves Raymond”, Ray Romano. Although he seems to be spotted at the poker tables quite often, he hasn’t had much success; in fact over the course of the last 10 years he’s only picked up about 20 grand in prize money. But Romano loves poker so much that I doubt he will stop trying.

Everyone remembers Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane – Superman’s main squeeze, or as Paris Carver, Agent 007’s ex-lover in “Tomorrow Never Dies.” If you ever got the chance to speak with her, as I did one night several years ago (that’s me with Ms. Hatcher in the photo on the left) she would tell you that she is a closeted poker player, and now she loves having a whole new fan base in the poker world.

Don Cheadle There are those who fall in love with poker and it somehow doesn’t seem to matter whether they win or lose;  they apparently play just for the sheer rush or the banter around the table. Such is the case with Don Cheadle who gave us such an outstanding performance in “Hotel Rwanda”, an inspiring actor who loves poker and doesn’t seem to care if he ever cashes. Cheadle is the co-founder of the “Ante Up For Africa” foundation, dedicated to raising money for Africans in need.

SlashPoker attracts people from every walk of life including hard-playing rock and rollers. We all know Slash from “Guns and Roses,” but not many of us know about his love of poker. He has gone so far as to be the main ingredient in a free poker-playing app, “Poker Slash.”

 

That’s it for now, but we will be back soon with some more well know poker-playing celebrities. Until then have fun playing your favorite poker games; hopefully on one of our premium poker tables .

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.
