Well, I know one thing–when you play Texas Hold’em, or any other form of poker for that matter, you want to be stylin’. If you play with your own cards, you don’t want them to get all bent out of shape and dog-eared by their falling or tumbling all over the place. If you’re at the casino, you want to be a sharp-lookin’ shark.
You want to be dressed right and you want to protect your cards: except when you’re out playing poker at the casino, the protection you want here is of your game. The last thing you need is to have your hole cards accidentally flipped over, or have the far edge pop up for all to read when you lift a corner to take a peak at what you’ve got.
So, you’re in need of some stylin’ Poker Card Protectors. No, you don’t need to have the same kind that the Fossil Man uses–you know, wooly suits and all that other stuff. But you can get yourself Poker Card Protectors that are just cooler than an Eskimo in the shade–covers like the Slick Spinner Card Cover, or the Ace of Clubs Spinner Card Cover.
