The History Of Poker Chips

Did you know that poker chips were created so that the game host, whether a casino or other private establishment, had some control over the safety of the chip count? If a house has their own custom-made poker chips with different colors for different denominations, then counting them is easy, and duplicating them becomes a bit harder. Custom engravings, numeration, and designs that are intricate and that change yearly also ensure against theft or duplication.

Card Guards

Have you ever watched a professional Poker Game? Those unflappable cool cat players that seem so intimidating you can barely imagine talking to them? Part of the mystique, other then their flat affected faces is the overall look they sport. It’s not just clothes and very mysterious glasses, but it’s down to the details, like their Card Guard.
