I apologize for my lapse in foresight - the giveaway is limited to US addresses excluding AK and PR. I am working on a new distribution channel in Canada, so hopefully we will get you guys in the next giveaway, that or pray the oil prices come down so I can afford to freight one of these bad boys into Canada or Mexico.

First off, I just want to say good luck to everyone - it's good to see a positive turnout so far.

I would like to try and to translate all this attention into some tangible information that will produce future product lines - because after all, our tables are all engineered with the players in mind.

For those who enjoy giving feedback, what do you look for in a quality poker table (size, features, rail width, cup holders, legs, etc)? Give it some thought and let me know, we may just come out with your ideal table and name it after you!

We have 3 new table styles coming in mid-April that should break quite a few of the conventional standards in poker equipment retail - without spilling the beans, each of the tables will have unique characteristics not found in similar priced tables online. "Better than the industry standard at prices lower than the industry standard" is still our mantra.  Stay tuned for more details....

wow great giveaway.  My answer to your question is simple, comfort.  If I plan on sitting at this table for 4+ hours I definitely want to be comfortable.  Everyone likes all the bells and whistles but a simple, comfortable table is all I need.  How that translates into design I have no clue.  Your tables look nice and your prices seem reasonable so I would keep you in mind if I were in the market for a new table.  Look forward to seeing your new line.

I'm tired of waiting until next year!

The most important thing about a table is the playing surface.  A lousy playing surface can ruin an otherwise good table.  Next most important is having a sturdy base (wobbly tables suck), and equally important is a smooth railing.

I don't have to much experience with different poker tables.

being comfortable has to be the most important. Saying that, probably a nice thick cushiony rail.

I prefer cupholders, but the nice 2-3 inch deep cupholders. Make them Stainless steel. The plastic ones suck.

A top quality speedcloth. I'm not familar with the different speedcloth's, but I have played on some good ones, and boy are they impressive.

I also prefer a race track on my tables. I don't really know why. I think it adds to the classiness of the table. For whatever reason I like my chips off of the playing surface when not in use, kind of silly, I know, but  its just a preferrence thing.

As for the legs, I don't really care. Obviously wooden legs look better, but folding legs are more practical.

I will probably never have the jack to buy a decent poker table, so affordability along with being nice and comfy is a must!!!

I dislike cupholders.  They encourage drinking at the table, and my chips keep falling into them.  Similarly, while I like the looks of a racetrack, I don't like playing on one.  I hate the sound of my chips clacking on the wood.

I like a cushiony rail, but it has to be sturdy too.

I hate a playing surface that fails to let the cards glide correctly (either too sticky or too slick).

Like DD, I don't even think about legs for the most part.  But I do think a lighted rail is pretty cool.

I think it would be neat to have a "removable" dealer space, of sorts.  Actually, it would probably be a removable player space, so that if you gained a dedicated dealer somewhere down the line, you could remove a chunk of the table in the middle that would be where the dealer sits, and put it back if you had a full table.  If that makes sense at all.

There are tables they stay up when not in use, and those that come out just for a game.

For those that are not part of the room decor, I prefer lighter (one piece of 3/4" instead of two -- read, "no racetrack").  I prefer a 6" rail to a 4".  I also prefer no cupholders.  As Rose said, it encourages drinks on the table, and I hate when chips fall into them.  Its not a huge issue, but given the choice, I'd prefer not to have them.  Also, I prefer a smaller-ish table, 7-7.5' long and 44-ish" wide.  Seats 9 comfortably, could squeeze 10.  Again, the smaller size lightens up the weight.

All that said, if the table is a racetrack, I think cupholders in the track are preferable...  If its a race track, people are gonna put their drinks on it either way...so put cupholders in the track...I don't like them in the rail itself.

I prefer a covering that is not SSC.  I've tried Ultrasoft Velveteen with good results, but if I had the coin, I'd get some of the custom fabrics.  Speaking of coin, a dual pedestal with a stretcher looks great...  Again, this would be a high-end option for a piece of furniture not going into storage the next day.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I agree with Midnight Rose. I also dislike cupholders. Though the cupholders on a quality table like this are deep and therefore the chance of a spill is unlikely... why take the risk? I don't mind gambling, but not with my poker table  ;)

What are your feelings on tables with cupholders versus tables without cupholders, and why?


Simple.  I don't allow drinks at my table.  It's just a simple fold in half table, but after 3 years of use, the felt is still in good condition without any stains.  Same thing with most of my friends.  However, the last four games I've gone to, they allowed drinks at the tables.  Three out of four games had spills on brand new tables withn the first hour.  It only takes a couple of spills to ruin a good table.

While we're at it, I'm not a big fan of racetrack style tables either.  They look really nice, but I prefer some cushion under my cards.  It just makes it easier to look at my hole cards.

That being said, I wouldn't snub my nose at a racetrack style table with cupholders.  I just wish manufactures would offer tables without those optiions.  If I were in the market for another one, my design would not have cupholders or racetrack.

Edit... I just took a closer look at your site, and lo and behold, you do offer the options that I prefer.  Very nice.

As far as table preferences, I like a table with no race track.  Too many tables I've played on have an uneven transition where the track meets the felt which has led to my cards being accidentally exposed.  If the transition was flush I wouldn't mind a race track with no cupholders in it but still prefer no track at all.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Great feedback folks! Here are my experience on a good table....

Drinks and cupholders at the table is a very debatable topic amongst poker players depending on the purpose of the table. A casual house game usually looks for a good table with deep cup holders, because drinking and cards go hand in hand. More serious games, including large tournaments and fund raising event organizers prefer non-cupholder tables for the fact that 1. drinking usually does not help the thought process in poker (but I have seen exceptions) and 2. drinks on tables = spillage = pain in the arse).

Material wise, stainless over plastic of course, as long as the drinks fit in the holder. I have seen some import tables where they did not take into account the size of US sodas and cans, and the cup holders came out not large enough to fit beverages. But that's only a flaw from the design standpoint.

Racetrack - I can go either way. It acts as the betting line, so there is a point there, but I personally like a huge playing surface.

Legs - Fold up all the way. In our retail experience - just about every aspect of a fold up leg table is better and more welcomed by consumers. Fold up legs are unbeatable in versatility and weight. And not to mention - add a skirt to the support frame of the table and you have a "fixed" look at half the price. Statistically, 90% of our customers buy folding legs as compared to "casino style" legs.

Armrest foam - the harder the better

Playing surface foam - the thicker the better.

The removable dealer space is a crazy idea! - I love it.
