If you're serious about hosting weekly card games, you should really consider moving the boys to a dedicated table — one that's not used for eating. The 85-inch Texas Holdem Folding Poker Table ($370) is the best we've found for the price. It has built-in cup holders for each of the 10 player spots, a dealer area with a 500-chip tray, metal folding legs, and an extra large padded armrest. You get your choice of green or burgundy felt, both of which are washable.
If you're really serious about your game and tend to do everything in your power to get a leg up on the competition, you should take a look at the Nike MaxSight sport-tinted contact lens ($60). The innovative product not only filters out harmful light and rays, it also helps you perform better by eliminating glare and enhancing contrast. Grey-Green is for sports played in bright sunlight (golf, running, training), while Amber is for sports with a fast moving ball (soccer, tennis, baseball). But probably the most important part of wearing these things is the way they mess with your opponent's head. Seeing that "Oh my god, he looks like a demon!" look on the dude's face as he's heading towards second base is priceless. [via Oh Gizmo]
Poker and women — somehow, these two things seem to go together. Now they have a more direct connection than ever with the American Beauties Pin Up Chip Set ($220 - $300). Based on the “American Beauties” Pin Ups by artist Greg Hildebrandt — known for his work on the original Star Wars poster and several Marvel comics for starters — the sets come with a hard case, 300 or 500 composite chips, cards, and dice.
