Host a Texas Hold 'Em Party

Host a Texas Hold 'Em Party

Pick up your phone, call some friends and host a Texas Hold ’Em card night. If you stack the cards right, you might be the one walking away with the money!

Preparing for the Party:

1. Invite at least five people, but no more than eight. You don’t want the poker table to get overcrowded.

2. Find yourself a poker kit. If you don't have your own, borrow from a friend or get a cheap one at the store. A poker kit should consist of: a deck of cards, different colored chips, a dealers chip, and one small and one big blind chip. (Note: Make sure you will have enough poker chips for all your guests. Assume that each person will need at least forty chips.)

3. Read up on how to play Texas Hold’ Em. Make sure you know the rules like the back of your hand, in case your guests have questions.

4. Buy a swatch of green felt big enough to fit the top of your table. This will guard your table from any scratches from the poker chips and will also help set the mood for the game.

5. If you want to hand out party favors, go to a dollar store or a party outlet and find some cheap sunglasses for your guests to wear during the game.
