To be honest, I wasn't paying attention to the spectators, just the ladies at the table... Good host that I am.

GAME ROOM UPDATE:

Well, I've made some changes to my setup. First, my larger table required setup/takedown each time I'd host (maybe monthly). I created a nice overhead rack system in my storage room, but then I'd have to elicit help from attendees to show up early/stay late to setup (about 5 minutes). More often than not, we'd wind up leaving the table up after each game, and it'd take a couple weeks before I'd get someone over to help out. To setup my table, it also required me to move my large curvy couch, so it made TV/movie watching less comfortable. In short, this caused disruption to our rec room.

The solution was to move my smaller pub table (with poker table top) to a different room upstairs, and replace it with my larger table on permanent display. I really liked having the pub/poker table in the rec room (it just seemed to fit), but the inconvenience of setting up my larger table has trumped. It will be nice to host cards without having extra setup considerations/hassles. Hosting two table events will still require my workout room and setting up a second table.

On that note, I made a couple reductions to my setup with a couple items that didn't work for the space. I got rid of an amazing "Lite Volleyball" neon sign, and a second table I received from a fellow chip enthusiast. Neither really worked in the space. I'm also considering reducing the chip heard some to made room for an upcoming chip group buy order (around 3000 chips). My wife has started to lay down the law regarding poker's influence in our household. My large table being up for a couple weeks each time I host (getting in the way), too many chips, the extra stored table interfering with her access to the storage room, etc... Happy wife, happy life... I'm not sure she'll ever be "happy" about anything poker related (unless it all went away), but I can try to make her less unhappy

My wife has been "coaxing" me to get rid of a number of chairs I have accumulated. I have 10 Richardson black vinyl restaurant chairs (seen below), and we have 12 black "Sam's" chairs that are similar to the Richardsons, albeit not as well made. This coaxing has inhibited my ability to actively look for nicer chairs. However, now that the larger table is on full display, it might work to my advantage to get some classier looking (more comfy) chairs for my main table, and keep the Richardsons for any 2nd table games I host... Then offload the Sam's chairs?





I did get a chance to finally install my 6th chip storage drawer (which required me to re-work a couple of the other drawers to make it fit). I will still use a drawer or two for cards and accessories, but will likely have 4 solid drawers of chips now (that's after factoring the chips I'm looking get rid of).

Haven't completely decided... but likely my Lucky Derby Paulson hotstamps. I think I have around 900 of them. Not sure what I'll ask.

Here's a photo of what Lucky Derby chips look like (but these are not mine).



I believe my break down is

200 pinks
200 reds
200 browns
200 blues
<100 Gray/blacks
