Cheap Poker Tables – Does Anyone Know What The Three Fold Poker Tables Are Like? Are They Of Good Quality?

I've seen them. Some of them are OK... they "rail" and cupholders are deep enough to place a drink. Some are really thin, and it's like putting a drink on a flat surface.

Also, check the felt. Some of the table surfaces are really hard, which sometimes makes it harder to get under your cards to pick them off of the table. Some of them are good, though.

Lastly, whenever there's a fold in the table, there's a chance for the table to get misaligned (almost creating a ramp or a barrier). When dealing over the "ramp", sometimes the cards will turn over, causing a mis-deal.

So, a three-fold table has the possibility of two of these ramps or barriers.

Personally, I'd prefer a full table (non-folding), or a single-fold table. There are blueprints/plans on the internet where you can make a really nice table yourself, and not have to worry about the folds.
