We finally got the group together for the inauguration of the table. Playing 6 handed 10ct/10ct NLHE on the Isle of Capri set felt awesome. Everybody had a good time and the new table got a lot of praise.

Usually I have a strict policy against eating at the table, but my very pregnant wife got a pass... This time. ;)

In for €20, out for €44.80.

All in all a great night on a great table.
Only thing missing for some (me included) was a bettting line, but I've been working with @timinater on a custom felt over several weeks and we just finalized the design a few days ago. Stay tuned for the big reveal when it's printed and on the table. :)

Looks awesome, Angelo! I’m finally getting to play my first live game since October tonight. Only 4-handed but the Carmel casino CPCs will hit the felt for the first time

That is awesome man, have a great time! I can't tell you how nice it was to finally play live NLHE in a nice setting again.
It was my first time felting mint chips and I gotta say, it was awesome.
Your Carmel Casino chips are gonna be da bomb.

Designing the custom cloth
It was clear from the get go that I was gonna need help with designing a custom felt for the table.

i chose @timinater as my champion and we went on this quest together.

The idea / theme for the table
"Bulle" (english: bull) is the German nickname for cops. It's usually derogatory in its meaning when coming from a citizen (like "pig" in the US), but among German Cops it's sometimes used endearingly.

The word "Runde" is German for "circle" or "a frequent gathering of". The German language is largely built around combining words to describe something more complex so "Bullenrunde" is what I've been calling my monthly game with cop colleagues.

So I asked Tim to create something sleek that combines the image of a bull with a police theme.


Of course it had to be in shades of blue. The only other color is the bright yellow that represents the decals on our patrol cars:

The pattern outside of the betting line is a combination of the German police star which usually frames the state crest:

and the monument of the city of Cologne, our famous cathedral:

Close up of the pattern:

And here are some early mockups that document the journey Tim and I went through to get to the final proof:

After many iterations, we ended up with the final design.

I couldn't be happier with what Tim created and next up was ordering the actual cloth.

To be continued.
