Holdem Poker
Organising a poker night is simple, whether you are going to play Texas Holdem or some other game. You need some chairs, a table, a few friends, some counters (chips) and a pack of cards. Ideally plastic or clay poker chips are used for counters. Alternatively, you can use real money or any type of counters. If you want to win, you need a solid Texas Hold'em strategy as well, but that's another story.
