I would have never imagined that poker events throughout the world would or could be cancelled, but here we are with a world wide pandemic – Corona Virus Covid19 –  very possibly resulting in the cancellation of many events including the possibility of the 2020 World Series of Poker since it is just around the corner, just a couple of months away. I’m certain that a lot of players from around the world have already cancelled their plans or at the very least are planning to cancel if things do not improve. Many are in fact taking bets on the possibilities of the 2020 WSOP being cancelled or postponed.

As of March 14th some of the following events that have been cancelled or postponed until further notice:
Heartland Poker Tour (Cincinnati) – Cancelled
WSOP Circuit (Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles):  Cancelled
WSOP Circuit (Harrah’s in Atlantic City):  Stopped
WSOP Circuit (King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic): Cancelled
WPT Deepstacks Amsterdam (Holland Casino): Cancelled
WPT Deepstacks Maryland (Maryland Live Casino): Cancelled
WPT Deepstacks Jacksonville (Bestbet Casino): Postponed

There are lots more cancellations and/or postponements worldwide: way too many for us to keep up with.

To us here at the Texas Poker Store our biggest disappointment would be if the 2020 WSOP is in fact cancelled. Many of our friends and customers attend the Main Event religiously, most to play, many just to watch and be part of it all. So we’re hoping for the best, and of course not just because of poker but certainly for the health and safety of everyone worldwide.

Oh well, there’s always On-Line Poker Tables to check out!!!!

Wishing all of you the best, stay healthy nothing is more important. although poker does come a close second to many of you.

We’ll keep you informed, but in the mean time if you have any questions or comments please click here and fire away.

Poker games and poker tournaments can be found almost anywhere in the world, and even if you go to some remote island on vacation, the hotel is likely to have an internet connection and you can log in to your favorite online casino and play to your heart’s content.  Or at the very least, you can play for as long as you can afford to.

When your opponents, family or friends see you doing this, their immediate thoughts are that you are a poker fanatic. These are the top ten signs that they are right:

  1. If you witness something bad happening your first thought is “That’s a bad beat.”
  2. You claim that you know exactly what cards every player has, even when you’re not in the game.
  3. When you count, you always follow “8, 9, 10” with “Jack, Queen, King, Ace.”
  4. Every person that beats you, pisses you off, or just irritates you, and they are just “donkeys” to you.
  5. If you could, you would celebrate your wedding anniversary by watching a poker tournament on TV.
  6. When booking any hotel room you make sure they have a computer connected to the Internet. That way you can still play online while everyone else goes to the beach.
  7. You can’t help yourself; when you pay for anything you stack up your cash in neat little piles before pushing them to the teller.
  8. You always think you’re the best poker player at any poker table.
  9. When you lose you can’t accept it graciously and always go on “Tilt”
  10. Whenever you lose a hand, you’ll make statements like “I’m just setting traps,” “I knew exactly what he had.”

There are probably many more clear signs that tell everybody just how big of a poker fiend you really are. You’re welcome to send us any that you can come up with, just send them to us by clicking on the link below.

Last year about this same time we had several people who wanted to know our opinion on the right poker table they should get. Some of them wanted something that they could easily store away when not in use, while others wanted to set up their man cave with just the right table or tables for their in home tournaments. Our answers were simple and here they are revisited for all of you who have recently posed the same questions to us.

There are various kinds of poker tables available in the market and choosing the right poker table for your game room is important. There are folding poker tables that are excellent for the casual home or office games, and there is a variety of table tops that are easy to store away in your closet or take with you on trips. And, of course, there are the professional poker tables that would fit in the best game room in your house, office, ManCave, or poker room.

First thing you need to decide is what kind of table you want. Choose our Aces Pro Poker Table, a 96 inch portable table (pictured above) that you can fold up and store or carry away or a permanent piece of furniture like our 101.5 inch Lumen Poker table (pictured below). You can also choose from standard casino style tables to octagonal folding tables or table tops and with different color felts, with the most popular being green – but they also come in red, black or blue felts to complement your décor. If you take your game seriously then your poker table needs to be a comfortable place for your friends to gather and play for hours. Choose wisely and have fun. And don’t forget, all our tables can be customized with your logo, name, or just about any graphic you would like.
