Different Types Of Poker Playing Cards: A Comparative Study

Aug 17, 2007
Are you fond of playing poker? Do you enjoy playing cards whenever you get a free time? Have you already decided to dedicate your retired life on the poker game and spend it tricking with the cards? Are you concerned about the quality of the playing cards? Being a playing card enthusiast you definitely search for the best quality of cards that don't fold or get damaged even after shuffling for endless times.

Broad division of poker playing cards

Poker playing cards are generally divided into two types. The first type is the plastic card and the other is the paper card having a plastic coat on it. Can you make out the difference? From the names you can make a guess. You are right. The paper poker playing card has a hardy paper as the raw material. Finally this paper is enveloped with a plastic material for protection. But as the raw material is paper the wear and tear capacity of this type of card is poor.

Well plastic poker playing cards are fully made of plastic material. Obviously the durability will be more. Playing with the plastic card brings more pleasure to the players because handling and shuffling of these cards can be done with ease. There is no scope for the cards to get ripped or creased while moving in different hands. And they always remain glossy and shiny without allowing any dirt to gather inside the folds which is an obvious problem with the paper poker playing cards.

Easy maintenance of plastic poker playing cards

Plastic poker playing cards can be easily cleaned where as no such provision is there to clean the paper card with a plastic coat. Wiping the dirt with cold water and rubbing the surface of the plastic card with mild detergent is the safest and most convenient way to keep it clean. Hot water is strictly prohibited. While wiping with water, make sure you don't keep the surface wet for a long time.

The next step to the cleaning process is the drying process. Plastic poker cards have to be completely dried up before reusing. And while inserting the cards in the soap solution, you must be careful not to put the whole set together. Dipping it one by one is the best way but a bit slow. You can try out three to four cards at a time.

You can continue to play with the same poker cards for years if you buy the plastic card set for once. The paper poker playing cards are not bad but definitely the priority will go for the full plastic ones when compared.
