I am thinking about hosting an in person poker night once covid is done with. Any advice for what all I would need?


I’d start with at least two decks of plastic cards. Plastic will be way more durable and don’t crease or stain like your standard paper cards. You want to play with two decks so you can always have a shuffled deck ready to play after each hand instead of holding up play to shuffle. Of course a decent set of chips.  With that you’re good to go. If you have the space a felt oval poker table would be great for the game. 
 

That’s about the minimum you need but of course every good poker game should have access to at least one TV for sports and plenty of drinks and food.

Also I’m assuming this is just for a friendly tournament game. If it’s a cash game you may look into finding someone who will work as the permanent dealer.

I held a weekly game for years...kids kinda killed it.  All my buddies got real busy.

Need to start it up again.

I would like to know more about your casino, but to be honest, I prefer gambling on online casinos.
First, it is safer nowadays, to stay at home but also, I love online gambling.
Of course, you may say that the risk of being scammed is higher when you gamble online, but there are sure and safe sites where I can gamble safely.

Playing in a group is way more fun than searching for random people all the time. You have your own jokes inside the squad, talk to each other, so generally, building friendships. I met my best friend also by playing on https://pick7.bet/, he was my opponent, I got a win against him and he wanted to play some more games, and now we are the best friends, I am very glad that we are living during these times when things like this are possible.

KEM or COPAG playing cards are generally seen as the "best" plastic playing cards.  I've also had good experience with the 12-pack of Bicycle cards available at the local Sam's Club or Costco (I prefer the Big Pips because they're a bit more fun and easier to see across the table when the dealer is laying out the community cards, but that's a personal preference.  Bonus for using a 12-pack? Once the decks start getting dinged up you have spare decks to swap in as needed.

If you're doing tournament - which some folks prefer since it puts everyone on an even $ playing field - then you'll probably want to get some freebie poker timer/blind app to keep track of when the blinds will go up. Some tokens to indicate BB, SB, and Dealer are usually helpful too.

Make sure you have enough chips to cover the denominations you're playing. A standard 200-chip poker set may not provide a 12 person, two table NL tournament with adequate chip coverage.   Perhaps @Cary Kollins can offer more advice on that front.
