Top Home Poker Game Hosting Tips

May 15 2020

Here’s my top 10: 10. The room is focused on the game. No TV in the background or other folks passing through. If that’s a tricked-out man cave… great. However, it can be almost any room. The key is to limit distractions. 9. Plenty of food and drink. I prefer either a potluck or everyone chip-in and order out. Poker without at least drinks, if not snacks, is like a trip to the bathroom with nothing to read. See rule 5. 8. I prefer the same one or two dealers the whole time. Let’s face it, people possess different levels of shuffling and dealing skill. Passing the shuffle to the next guy who just got up for a drink and then gives it a couple of shuffles before a chaotic deal can be agonizingly slow and irritating. The key is to keep the game moving. Nothing keeps a game moving faster than the same dealer using a built-in card shuffling machine. Plus, without shuffling becomes no big chore for the lone dealer. Most people get a little tired of dealing after a while, but not with a shuffler. 7. Depending on the group, consider playing for a cause. It feels great to give back and it’s easy to do. I suggest players cash out for half of what they would otherwise get and the host sends the other half to a worthy cause. With this agreed upon up-front, everyone can feel like they’re helping out. Consider a non-profit in your own town, maybe one struggling with the COVID19 pandemic. That way, even the losers are winners! Pro Tip: It might also help you get more players. 6. Start early. Just because most games are Friday or Saturday nights, doesn’t mean that your average player wants to stay up til the wee hours of the morning playing. To get in maximum play, start around 6:00. 5. If you start at 6:00 or “dinner time” as I like to call it, consider ordering pizza or having a make your own sandwich buffet. The easiest way to swing that is everyone kick in and order delivery. In any case, you can’t have people playing at dinner time and have nothing that looks like dinner. That game will be over quickly. Also, Have a wide variety of beverages. That means alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Not everyone likes to get hammered or even drink any alcohol. I know, weird. Of course, for those who do enjoy getting pleasantly pickled, make sure there’s enough liquid ammo for even your most crapulent friend. Again, you might want to take up a collection to help defray the cost. You could even toss a chip or two out of every pot to cover food and drinks. 4. Provide the most comfortable space possible. If that’s your kitchen table with all the usual chairs at a formica table, then that’s what it is. Most people are much happier playing at a cool table, with good cards and comfortable chairs. 3. Don’t invite notorious drunks, unless that leaves no one left to invite. One guy getting ready to talk to the toilet in a room of mostly sober people is just irritating. It screws up the flow of the game and can really be a distraction. So, try to get players who are all about slightly above the lowest common denominator in LoLI… Level of Likely Inebriation. 2. I also suggest staying away from poor losers. It should be that everyone views playing, even losing, as entertainment - not as a serious setback to get all wound up about. This may also help screen out extreme trash talkers. That can get old too. The Venn Diagram for the these two groups has a lot of overlap. 1. Have fun and remember… it’s just a game. You’re there to have fun and make memories. Set a buy-in that everyone can easily afford and have a great time! Don’t forget, BBO offers instant approval financing options to reduce your monthly cost to something somewhat more than almost nothing. What could be easier?

Table Talk: 3 Different Types of Home Game Poker Tables

Apr 30 2020

In this article, we’re going to talk about the different types of poker tables for home games. Having put tens of thousands of poker tables in home games across the world, we see that there’s three distinct categories for home game poker tables.
Folding Leg Poker Tables
Maybe you’re just starting your game and you’re growing your home game. Home game hosts generally start with a more versatile poker table. Generally, with a folding leg. The beauty of folding leg portable poker tables is that you can stash them away in a garage or a separate bedroom. And when you’re going to throw the game you pull it out, you put some chairs around it, you fold the legs, and instantly you have a great poker table for your game.
Portable Perfection – Spacious 10 Player + Dealer Table with Height-Adjustable Folding Legs
Permanent Premium Poker Tables
As hosts graduate from the folding leg poker table, they generally then will start looking for a permanent fixture premium poker table. Generally, something that has nice wood pedestal legs. Then at this permanent premium level you can start getting into customizations, which gets really cool. You can specify things like the different materials for your armrests. You can talk about graphics on your layout. You can even start powering up your table with USB chargers, with LED lights, or cool things like auto shufflers. It gets really tricky and really fun.
Fully Decked Elite Alpha With In-table Technology – LEDs + AutoShuffler + USB chargers And A Full-Custom Playing Surface
However, the downside of having the permanent premium poker table is that it does require a permanent space; So, you’re going to have to clear out either a game room for a poker room, or basement or something because you’re going to be proud, and you want to show your table off. So that’s certainly a consideration for a premium high-end permanent poker table.
Hybrid Poker Tables
In recent years, a third category has emerged, which sort of blends the best of both worlds; It’s a dining poker table, and what I mean by dining poker table is that it is the same as a premium permanent poker table, but it comes with a matching dining top that goes over the poker table. And with that dining top on, it’s completely incognito. It looks like a dining table, so then you can situate it in a dining room. Maybe even a family room. Something like that so you don’t have to dedicate a dedicated space for your poker table, which works great. You just take the top off and play, and when you’re done you put the dining top back on and you go about your business. Of course, there are also smaller models of poker tables that don’t take up as much space to begin with, as well.
Perfect For Smaller Spaces – 8 Handed Round Table with a Built-In Chip Tray And A Fully Custom Playing Surface
So, generally, there you have it. That’s the three different categories of poker tables that we generally see for home game posts. I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about the types of poker tables for home games. And if you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me directly at george@bbopokertables.com, or you can always reach out to us on Facebook. Finally, remember, the next time that you’re looking for a brand new poker table to visit BBO Poker Tables. So until next time, this is George from BBO. I’d love to get your feedback and comments.

The GSW Warriors Community Foundation Charity Poker Event - Jan 14th, 2017

Jan 24 2017

On Jan 14th, 2017 the Golden State Warriors and the GSW Warriors Community Foundation hosted the 4th annual GSW Charity Poker Tournament, raising money to support education and youth development to promote thriving students, schools and communities. The glamourous event featured was presented by Joe Lacob, Nicole Curran, Chamath Palihapitiya, Bridgette Lau and hosted by 14 time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, and was held at the St. Regis in downtown San Francisco.

The unique format of the event saw the Golden State Warriors players spread out amongst the poker players, each with a bounty on their seats. Knock out a player, you get his signed jersey on the spot. This unique experience made each table much more exciting with beginners and seasoned poker players gunning for the player sitting at their table.

In 2016, the tournament and live auction raised over a million dollars for the low income youth in the surrounding Oakland Bay Area, and this year’s event did not fail to impress. BBO Poker Tables was lucky enough to be a sponsor and prize partner for the event, with the winner choosing a custom BBO Elite Poker Table which was signed by the Warriors players. The poker logistics of the event was handled by Blue Dog Events, a premier charity poker operator in Northern California.

Engineered Plastic, It’s Fantastic!

Jul 28 2016

A lot of you may be wondering why one would voluntarily shell out a whole $300-$350 more for one of our engineered vinyl armrests - well, wonder no more. Think of this as your crash course in customization. Pour yourself a drink, get comfortable, and let’s talk vinyl!

  • Fake It - a lot of people ask us why we don’t upholster our tables in leather. Well, we don’t know about you, but here in California our cows are happy and we like to keep it that way. We like to get that luxurious leather look, minus the cruelty, with our exotic vinyls. You’re sure to get the warm fuzzies when you think about all of the furry friends you’re helping out by not choosing leather.
  • So Fresh & So Clean - it’s all fun and games until someone spills the beer. In our experience, vinyl is simply easier to wipe clean than leather. Easy, breezy!
  • Don’t settle for a GED (Good Enough Design) - there is nothing worse than wondering what could have been. We see so many amazing tables come out of our Workshop of Wonders, and there is nothing worse than seeing a mind blowing design that is missing that final vinyl touch. Don’t settle for a GED, or, Good Enough Design. Sure, our Skull template would look good with the standard black vinyl...but adding the dangerously glossy black snakeskin armrest might push it from just “good enough” to full on badass!

    Have your eye on that Zombie template? A fresh blood colored vinyl would look KILLER (I know, we’re so punny!) with that!

    At BBO, we love to see customers who aren’t afraid to get creative and truly make a table their own! When in doubt, give us a call or get onto chat, we can answer any additional questions that you might have. Want to see a specific engineered vinyl armrest swatch in person? We will happily send you a swatch or two, as long as you ask nicely!

    Custom Poker Table Dog - Big Red

    Jul 11 2011

    The BBO Poker Tables back story has many memorable moments, but one of the the best deals in company history has to be the day we negotiated for the company mascot, Big Red. We first found Big Red in Vallejo, California in 2007 when his previous owner was looking to sell his one and a half year old Bull Terrier. At the time, BBO Poker Tables was still a very small, local poker table company, and we were looking for a mascot to secure our premises, or at the least, sleep all day and occasionally greet customers. Big Red seemed to fit what we were looking for, so we hopped in the car to go meet the monster, little did we know what we were up against. Upon arriving at the residence, we were greeted and lead to the back yard to meet Big Red. As we passed the gate, I noticed that this was less a back yard, as much as it was part auto wrecking yard, and half forest. There were at least 3 abandoned and rusted car frames, with 2 foot weeds growing about, but no dog to be found. Vince, the owner, told me to stay put while he went to go untie Big Red. Suddenly, there was a bit of uncertainty in the air... Next thing I know, I see a brown Bull Terrier fly out of a bush, sprint across the yard past me jump vertically into the air, and nose dives into a stacked pile of used car tires - face first! He then proceeded to run into me, knock a few tools over, and rock a healthy number 1 next to the junker in the back yard. "I like this guy, I’ll take him." I immediately said. Any dog that will nosedive through a tire stack without hesitation is my type of dog. As for compensation, the owner wanted a few hundred dollars for Big Red, but in our chats, he told me that he was a avid card player, which could not have worked out any better. Instead of cash, we were able to acquire our new mascot by setting Vince up with a complete BBO Poker Tables setup. A win win in this situation. If any of you are wondering what the mascot looks like... BBO  Poker Tables Mascot - Big Red
