A very important factor to consider when
buying a poker table is to decide if you want cup holders or not.
Some feel that there will be more
problems with players spilling drinks when they can place their drinks in
cup holders on the table.
Many poker table owners use the three Cs
rule during poker games. Cash, chips and cards only. No food or drinks
allowed on the table.
Others believe cup holders will reduce
the number of spills on to the table, because if the player�s drinks are
not in a cup holder, than they probably will be on the table felt.
If you decide to go with cup holders,
than you should by a table with cup holders that are 2 3/4� in diameter
and 3� deep. These measurements are perfect for both beer bottles and
cans. Any deeper and the players will have a hard time getting the cans
out.(Especially after having consumed a few beers).
Getting a table with the cup holders
underneath the table or in the armrest of the chairs is also an option.
