    Seems more and more people are unloading all sorts of crap on the table these days when they sit down. I-pads, phones, car keys, headphones that seem to be getting to a ridiculous size, the 10 gallon XXXL big gulp soft drink that wont fit in the cup holder and all other manner of sh%te.

    Why do people feel they need to empty their pockets when they sit down at a poker table?

    What do you think should be allowed on the table, apart from your stack of course?

    There should only be 3 things on a table. Chips, beer, and ashtrays.

    The rooms I play in do not allow anything on the felt. Electronics, keys, napkins etc have to stay off the felt. On the rail is allowed and drinks need to be in the cup holder. One of the rooms I play at now has two sizes of cup holders, normal and jumbo ( but still unable to hold your 10 gallon XXXL big gulp)

    I don't think anything other than cash/chips need to be on the table. Junk on the table just allows an angle shooter to hide chips.

    they should have little trap doors on the tables with shredders under them and when crap is set on the table it just falls through the trap door and gets shredded

    Chips and beer. I hate to admit it but sometimes the beer gets in the way.

    Most rooms just don't want to put restrictions on players. M Resort ( Can't get a game going) Riviera ( recently closed) because they have no players. Or on the other end of the spectrum Red Rock and Orleans because they don't want to mess up a good thing and risk turning into dead rooms. The poker market is over saturated, too many rooms not enough players!

    What nasty casino do you play at that allows smoking at a poker table?

    I wish the rest of the casino floor would follow the poker room's lead on that. And I haven't played at one that hasn't. Does any Strip casino allow smoking at the poker table?

    I feel the same way about tables in general. I'm sick of DB's who always have to take their phone and keys out and put it on the dinner table. Just keep it in your damn pocket where its been all day. And if its too uncomfortable then stop wearing those damn skinny jeans, you are too old for that! Lol

    My grandfather would have a hissy fit if you came to the table without a belt on or put your elbows on the table. I think his head would explode if he'd been old enough to have all the grand kids pull their cell phones out and put them, on the table. I bet he'd dump his beer all over the table just out of spite!

    At our home game there is only one cell allowed on the table and that's whoever is designated DJ :thumbsup:

    I think this is spot on. I have no problem with a phone or iPad. I hate casinos that tell you to get up when your on your phone. That's stupid. Do they think I'm talking to someone else at the table lol??

    Drinks keys and stupid statue card covers need to be off the table tho.

    I swear to you that this is true. We play a weekly tournament and there's a guy who brings 3 or 4 Tupperware containers filled with mini chocolate bars, slim jims etc. The kind you give out at Halloween. He stacks as many as he can in the drink holder.
    I have never seen him eat any of them and he offers a player who just won an uncontested hand a chocolate bar to see one of his cards otherwise he never offers anyone one of them. If he gets moved to another table he packs up his stuff and goes through the same ritual at his new table.

    It is bizarre.

    How often do people take him up on it? Does he ask to see one every time? If it's every time, that def would be annoying. And obviously very weird.
