We here at the Texas Poker Store love
it when we can introduce a new or enhanced product or feature to our customers. One of our most popular tables has always been the Elite, a classy table with black, solid oak  pedestal legs and a depth of two inches from the top of the ultra-wide armrest to the playing surface, creating a sunken playing area that adds a distinct element to play, giving the playing surface a pit feel. The playing surface can be customized which means you can choose the color of
your standard cloth or  speed cloth that you prefer or submit your own custom graphics (your company name or the logo of your poker club). The dimensions are: 94in x 44in x 30in and many customers have opted to add the dining top, increasing the dimensions to 96in x46in x 30in.

Elite Alpha ClassicWe are now pleased to introduce the Elite Alpha Classic, with all the features of the Elite, including the same ultra-wide armrest and solid oak pedestal, but with something added for the alpha players among you. If you like the idea of matching your personality by incorporating LED lighting trim on your poker table, you can do it with just one touch of the standard remote, or you can splurge with a programmable WiFi remote controlled by your smartphone. Imagine having 16 high-quality LED colors as well as five different light modes to play with.

Elite Alpha-Wild-Croc ArmrestYou may not be able to control who wins the next poker tournament, but you can be a big winner by controlling the look, feel and mood of your poker room.


Let us know what you have in mind and we’ll make it happen for you.

Now that the major winter holidays are behind us, we know that many of you will be returning to your favorite weekly poker game. Some of you are undoubtedly looking for ways to improve your game by acquiring new strategies; you can learn so much by playing lots of online
poker (at least that’s what my husband, Jim “Pocket Bullets” Paris tells me)
and studying the successful techniques of some of the best poker players in the world.

Most well-known poker stars have at one time or another attempted to attract their followers by posting their own teaching blogs or videos. Of course, they used to write books, but with too few readers out there, teaching online seems to be the best way to go. 

PokercodeTwo of the best poker minds anywhere are Fedor Holz and Matthias Eibinger; between them they have won more than $50 million playing poker. That’s why they created Pokercode: an active learning model to help you aspiring poker stars absorb the wealth of information they share. As described by Holz:

“It is a holistic approach combining all the state of the art technology, where I teamed up with Matthias Eibinger, one of the best online players in the world, and combined it with my adjustments and my experiences from the live circuit,” said Holz about the Pokercode course. “No matter what goal you have, whether you want to become a better player, make more money, or become one of the best in the world, we will provide you the framework.”

They cover dozens of topics in minute detail, including body language, mindset, tells, bankroll management, ICM, and more. Holz and Eibinger filtered through thousands of hours of their learning, removed their mistakes, and created Pokercode. Of course, this kind of instruction is not cheap, but compared to hiring one of them (or any poker super-star) to give you private lessons, costing thousands of dollars per hour, it’s quite a bargain. There’s a one-time payment of $1,549 when you sign up to Pokercode via PokerNews. Just click on the link below to check it all out for yourselves; .

Learn all you can and practice a lot by sitting in on as many poker tables, both online as well as live, as you possible can.

Another decade has flown by and poker has continued to turn dreamers into poker millionaires. Here is a quick list of the top five all-time biggest winners:

1. Justin Bonomo – $43,463,089
2. Daniel Negreanu – $39,830,194
3.Erik Seidel – $34,601,320
4. Fedor Holz – $32,556,377
5. Antonio Esfandiari – $27,600,000

That comes out to a whopping $178,050,980.00 … that is one hell of a lot of money earned by just the top five players. The question is; how much have you taken home from the game we all love?

To come close to earning even a tiny fraction of that kind of money, you have to play a lot, which means practice, practice and more practice. Play online, play at home, play at every local game you can find. Understand every move you make, study every move your opponents make. And maybe, after thousands of hands played, you might be starting to figure it out. And then, and only then, you might be ready to sit at a professional poker table with some worthy opponents who will, of course, try to squash you quickly and take all your chips.

So, with that said we wish all of you the most prosperous New Year in 2020.

Yes, we know it’s December. Time to talk Santa, snow, Christmas shopping and presents under
the tree. In fact, we hope you continue to do some of your shopping at the Texas Poker Store. However, we know some of our loyal poker-playing fans like to plan ahead, especially if a trip to the 2020 World Series of Poker is in their future.

So, here’s an early Christmas present idea for WSOP fans; maybe you can ask Santa to leave your plane ticket under the tree.

As announced and tweeted by the 2020 WSOP: The 51st annual WSOP will kick off on May 26th and run until July 15th from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Two popular tournaments, the Big 50 and the $1000
Seniors Event
have also been scheduled: Big 50: May 28/29/30/31
Seniors: June 18, 2020

The most popular tournament of the year, the WSOP Main Event, will run from July 1st to July 14th with starting flights on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Among the other tournaments confirmed for 2020 include the return of the Big 50 No Limit Hold’em, which last year attracted 28,371 entries.

But for now, with only two weeks until Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza, some serious holiday shopping is called for. Catch the spirit of giving and remember, we here at TPS are open for business and are still offering our Holiday Discounts of 10% on everything in stock. So hurry and get your special poker gifts before it’s to late.

Currently our most popular table is our “Lumen” kidney shaped, 101.5 inches x 46 inches, 10 players plus dealer positions. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. Check it out at

The “Nighthawk” round poker table, 55 in. diameter, 8 players. The table can be customized with your logo or name or whatever. check it out at

Check us out (quickly) to give someone a poker-related gift that makes them know you care – about them and their interests.

Merry Christmas to one and all, and to all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
