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.

First things first;  the perfect man cave to you may not be perfect to others. We’re going to make our suggestions based on what would be some cool stuff to put into a poker-themed man cave. The following suggestions are based on our experiences playing poker at way too many places from California to New York.

The 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. 

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:

Lumen Poker TableThe Lumen Poker Table, priced at just under $2400 (including shipping), is a kidney-bean shaped table with 11 positions (10 players + a dealer). It has integrated LED lighting, cup holders, Napa pedestal legs, and can be fully customized with your own graphics, USB Ports, Dealer chip trays, and lots more. Great table perfect for that medium-end budget.

Desert Heat 1000 count chip set

Then, 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 aluminum case, comes in at just slightly more than $200.00, and it even includes a dealer button and three decks of cards.

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.

I just learned something today that totally shocked me. Did you know that the weekly poker game you host in your man-cave – the one with the brand new custom Lumen poker table that you’re so proud of — or maybe The Lumen Poker Table the game you attend twice-a-month after hours at the office, is actually ILLEGAL in some states? Seriously. I knew there were some pretty obscure laws still on the books, like dogs aren’t permitted to bark after 6 P.M. in Little Rock, Arkansas, or bear wrestling is prohibited in Alabama and wading in public fountains is forbidden in parts of Kansas. But not being able to play poker in your own home? Talk about intrusive!

So, for those of you wanting to know if you’ve been breaking the law during your weekly poker game, the answer might be YES, if you reside in:

Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi (where you can bet on dog fighting, but not a home game of poker!) Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Of course, that still leaves plenty of states where hosting or attending a home or private poker game is perfectly legal. Take California and Colorado, for example, where you can legally play poker at home while smoking legal, recreational marijuana! (probably not a great idea, but still . . . it’s absolutely legal.) You’re also legal in Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, and North Dakota.

All of the above-mentioned legal “home poker” games, otherwise known as social gambling, abide by a set of guidelines that most of us accept as reasonable:

  1. The host, or homeowner, may not receive economic gain for hosting the game, only from personal winnings (no rakes allowed!);
  2. All players must have an equal opportunity to win and
  3. The poker game is played in a private setting (home, private club etc.)

I have no idea how these social guidelines are enforced, but you can add Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Washington to the list of legal states by that criterion. If you dig deeper into the laws for each state, you can find little quirks governing home poker games beyond the three social guidelines. For instance, in Colorado, Connecticut and Wyoming, players must be able to prove that they have a bona fide social relationship outside of a gambling setting. And in Florida, players are restricted to a $10 maximum limit on a single hand (known as “penny-ante” poker games.)

It’s all pretty confusing, especially once you get past the illegal states. That’s why, if you’ve been counting, there are only 48 states mentioned. The laws in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts don’t actually refer to home poker games at all, leaving it up to the residents to decide.

In fact, we’d be willing to bet (see how hard it is to avoid using gambling terminology?) that whatever state you live in, if you want to play poker at home with your friends you’ll find a way to shuffle up and deal. Good luck.
