Many thanks and official congrats to His All Craftiness @T_Chan for the superb felt:

The table itself, one with folding legs, had the felt and foam appllied by a caprenter friend of mine, who also collared it with an oversized rail to extend its diameter from 120 to 128cm (47.5 to 50.5 in) and make it capable of accommodating 7 players. Really nice work, especially if you take into account that this was the first poker table that he saw, let alone built, in his life.:)

Saint John Coltrane (pictured here as a Greek Orthodox saint, in a Byzantine-type icon) overseeing the games:D

Notice the flames of his soul coming out of the sax.

Another nice element in the room

And a picture I took and printed many years ago, of the Greek chapel of St Nicholas, just under one of the WTC towers

Scanned it from a magazine and magnified it, then had it printed.
The magazine, if I remember well, claimed that the icon was the inspiration of some Coltrane fans from California, who hired an icon-maker to paint it. If I judge from the mis-spelled name Ioanis (correct is Ioannis with double -nn-) apparently the icon-maker wasn't Greek, but still interested enough in medieval Greek culture to become an icon-maker:)
