Kartu Poker Di Lubang dan Kartu Di Papan – Untuk Melihat atau Tidak Melihat Kami memiliki turnamen poker kandang yang berlangsung selama beberapa waktu sekarang, dan telah terjadi dilema terus-menerus yang muncul di setiap pertandingan. Kami memindahkan game dari rumah ke rumah setiap bulan, dan tuan rumah memasok meja poker, chip poker, dan kartu remi untuk permainan poker rumah mereka. Pelanggan tetap kami terdiri dari orang-orang dari segala usia, dan satu-satunya hal yang tampaknya tidak bisa memuaskan semua orang adalah jenis Kartu Poker yang bisa dimainkan. Kartu datang dengan ukuran “indeks” yang berbeda, atau ukuran huruf dan angka wajah kartu. Ada indeks ukuran standar, di mana wajah memiliki angka yang cukup kecil, lalu ada indeks Jumbo di mana wajah kartu memiliki angka besar. Beberapa host Poker menggunakan indeks Standar dan beberapa host Poker menggunakan indeks Jumbo. Tidak ada yang memuaskan semua pemain. Indeks standar kecil mendapat keluhan dari beberapa pemain dengan kesulitan penglihatan bahwa mereka tidak dapat dengan mudah membaca papan, kartu yang menghadap ke atas di tengah meja. Kami bahkan memiliki beberapa pemain salah membaca tangan mereka, mengira klub adalah sekop, dan karena itu bermain salah karena salah membaca papan. Kemudian ketika kita pergi ke permainan di mana tuan rumah menggunakan kartu indeks Jumbo, yang mudah dibaca menghadap ke atas di tengah meja di papan, mereka mengeluh bahwa jumlahnya sangat besar sehingga membuatnya lebih mudah dan mungkin untuk pemain lain melihat kartu hole mereka ketika mereka melihatnya.

Damai akhirnya. Deck kartu bermain gaya ini tampaknya memuaskan kedua kubu, jadi sekarang kami menggunakannya secara eksklusif dan tidak ada lagi “perdebatan” tentang mana yang lebih baik.
