Checklist Poker Sets

Poker chips
  • Depending on the number of players, your poker set should contain at least the following amount of chips: 300 chips for 0 to 4 players, 500 chips for 5 to 6 players, 750 chips for 7 to 8 players. For 9 or more players, you need 1,000 chips.
  • Ceramic chips are ideal. They are light, durable and have the best balance.
  • The chips should be available in 4-5 colors (different values).
  • For beginners, chips with printed values are recommended. They simplify the calculation.
Playing Cards
  • Poker sets should contain at least 2 decks of cards. This way you have a replacement at hand in case cards are lost or broken.
  • Look for plastic cards instead of paper cards. They are more durable and easier to shuffle and deal.
  • A dealer button is essential.
  • Beginners should also have a small-blind and a big-blind button in their set.
  • A sturdy aluminum case is better than delicate plastic and is cheaper than wooden cases.
  • Make sure it has soft interior padding to protect the chips.
Optional Accessories
  • A table pad (usually made of green felt) gives the poker game a real casino atmosphere. Beginners should make sure that there are also markings for the dealt and revealed cards.
  • Some poker sets also contain dice. You only need these for game variants like dice poker.
  • If you’re new to the game, your kit should also include instructions (at least for the most popular poker variant, Texas Hold’em).
