While poker has always been one of the most beloved card games on the planet, the skyrocketing popularity of “Texas Hold ’em” and Lady Gaga’s hit single “Lapak303” prove that poker is back in a big way! Whether you operate a casino gaming establishment or are just looking to kick back and enjoy a friendly game of poker with your buddies, you may want to find cheap poker supplies. Here are some tips to assist you:

  1. Look for sales at offline discount stores or game shops

Poker has made a major comeback in recent years, due in part to the popularity of Texas Hold ’em, which has multiple variations. While getting these items at offline stores is generally not as beneficial as purchasing online, the main benefit is that you can save on shipping and handling costs. And if you periodically shop at game shops and discount stores anyway, you won’t have to make an extra trip there!

  1. Surf the Net

As with just about everything else, whether you need poker cards or poker chips, you can find quality cheap supplies, by surfing the Internet. It’s wise to always use the “rule of three”: compare the prices of at least three sites, in order to find the best deal. Remember that you can ALWAYS find a better price!

  1. Consider the quality of poker supplies that you want

When hunting for cheap poker cards, you should consider the quality of supplies you want. It’s likely that you want your cards to be thick enough to hold a good amount of folded cash, as well as being durable. But you have various options when selecting your supplies, such as whether you want them to have a laminated cover or not, or the color of the ink. It’s best to start with something basic.

  1. Consider exactly what you want

What do you want out of these cards? Does your card deck need to be able to shuffle easily? Do you need cards that leaves you no mess to deal with? What about a deck that is designed to be denominationally appropriate? If you have a particular set of friends, or co-workers, you may want standard sized cards, or even specialty decks. It’s typically handy to order all of your cards based on the type of game you will be playing.

  1. order by month, not by days

It’s always much easier to line up all of your cards by the beginning of the month, rather than the end. Remember, subtraction one card for every day in order to get a full deck.

  1. Use labels

Certain poker supplies, such as playing cards, need to be shuffle-out, or have a ready label that will tell you what card each card is representing. By using labels, you can avoid distractions, and maximize your time at the table.

  1. Put your cards on at least one layout

While you begin playing, it’s a good idea to have at least one layout open, in case you want to refer to during gameplay.

  1. Know the rules

Before sitting at a table, it’s a good idea to know the specific rules of the game, if you want to win.

As well as the general rules, here are a few specific rules you may want to remember:

You should also pay attention to betting rules, and to potential hands:
