"I have had a very similar table before which actually had baize cloth (as a poker table should have). The material on this table top was just a nylon green cloth.... but then it was cheap so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised."

Drinkstuff says: Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments Peter. This is the first complaint we've had regarding the Octagonal Poker Table Top - like you have mentioned, this is a budget table top designed for casual home use so can't be compared to high end poker tables.
"This is a great table for the price and decent quality considering. There was a bit of glue on the top of the table near the edge and fold. A very minor cosmetic imperfection, however.
One thing to note is that the edge of each octagon (i.e. the space for each player) isn't that big. It's not that it's uncomfortable to sit round, although you are quite close to your fellow players. It's more that if you all have drinks on the table there's a very narrow space in which to deal through. As a result and fairly inevitably, as the evening progressed someone knocked a drink on the floor. Not a huge problem as it was lager, just don't let anyone drink red wine!
One of the other things about this table is that it only folds in half. I believe this gives it an advantage over other tables of this type which fold in four, in that it's more durable (less places for it to break) and sits flatter even after wear. The downside is it's not as compact folded away, or as easy to transport, but easy enough to leave it behind the sofa if it's not going anywhere.
As a review mentioned below, the handles are very long and thin.
Overall, definitely worth the money and great service and delivery as well."
