Up to about the last 5 or 6 years, poker tables were a lot like pool tables; big, heavy, permanent, and expensive, if you could even find one at all that you could have shipped to your house...Folding poker tables have solved all these issues.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
Home poker moved into the 21st century with the creation of the folding poker table. With a name that says it all, FoldingPokerTableStore.com was created to specifically cater to the average home poker player by offering a casino experience, at a price that makes it available to anyone. Add to that the colorful and realistic size and weight poker chips and other Texas Hold'em supplies, and poker buffs are able to get that “Vegas” feel right in their own kitchen, dining, or living room.
The problem as stated by the owner of the store, John Van Sciver, has been two-fold, size and cost. “Up to about the last 5 or 6 years, poker tables were a lot like pool tables, big, heavy, permanent, and expensive, if you could even find one at all that you could have shipped to your house.” He explains, “Folding poker tables have solved all these issues.”
The average home owner or apartment dweller simply doesn't have the space to permanently set up a poker table anymore than they could a billiard table. Folding poker tables solved that problem by allowing the table to be folded up and stored when the game was over, hence getting the room back for what it was originally intended. Van Sciver states, “They setup in minutes, and when you are done, just fold it up and stick it in the garage, closet, or under a bed.”
The issue of cost is also addressed by the owner, “Cost is the problem, not just the price. The cost of shipping a large permanent table was nearly as much as the price of the table itself, running into the thousands of dollars”. The compacted size of the folding poker tables reduces the delivery costs significantly, while the folding legs reduce the price of the table as well. John states, “We can deliver a full size, 10 player poker table in the low two hundreds, and an 8 player table in the mid one hundred dollar range.” When he says delivered he means just that, since all the prices for everything in the store include the shipping costs.
But what about the apartment dweller or someone that even lacks space to setup a table? Poker Table Tops are poker tables without the legs, they are just setup on an existing table, and they cost much less than the folding tables. He says, “ You just set a poker top on your kitchen or dining room table, and you now have a poker table for under a hundred bucks, it will change your whole game night!”
