BBO website suggests it’s 93 x 45. People can decide for themselves whether that’s spacious for ten players. I’m comfortable with 8 players on a 66 x 44, so it seems huge to me.Generally speaking, I think that is a very good deal for a BBO table in very good condition. That table is like $2900 new. The felt insert is really easy to change out if you want a custom Chanman felt. You just have to decide if you 1) are okay with the size (that table looks on the small side -84’ x 44’ maybe) and 2) are okay with a race track - they look nice but they can be hard on chips.
My guess is that if you ever needed to get rid of it you would not lose too much, if any, money.
Generally speaking, hard surfaces are the enemy of chips. People bang and shuffle the chips against the wood all night long. That is hard on chips, especially over time. Race tracks also invite drinks close to the playing surface which can be a problem. With all that said, I actually like the look of a race track and the felt is really easy to pop out and change. For $700 thou, I would live with it. Just get a custom Chanman felt and your good to go.BBO website suggests it’s 93 x 45. People can decide for themselves whether that’s spacious for ten players.

I’m curious about the racetrack though. I hate racetracks, just because it’s much easier for me to shuffle chips on a padded felt than on a hard surface. But do you think it’s rough on chips? I guess it depends on how hard the wood is. I would have guessed that it’s more likely that clay chips dent a wood surface, than the wood surface damaging the clay chips.
I'd like to know when you got your table from us? We have had improvements in 2022 and have won a lot of casino bids in the past 2 years because our cloths outlast the competitors in the casino world.If you go GG, re-felt it yourself. There’s are shit and don’t last.
Oh that blows...& for whatever reason I never noticed your tag from before, sorry. You didn't want that table anyway!!! (Jk)Welp, got sniped on this. this table has been available for weeks, and someone bought this mere hours before I was supposed to come pickup. Oh well
GG rail is nothing amazing. Comfortable enough. Minimal height.I bought the X2 Mini by BBO a couple years ago and the only complaint I have is the default rail gets uncomfortable after playing for a few hours. It could just be me though as none of the other players have said anything.
My game has outgrown my 8 person table so I am looking at a new table. Does anyone have any feelings or opinions on the feeling of the rail on some of these other tables? I am looking at the Gorilla Illuminati Full, BBO Elite Alpha or maybe a Rockwell or UPT Classic, and I am checking into the K&G tables but really any thoughts on the subject are appreciated.
I'd like to see what kind of pillow rail you're comparing that to. I don't know if I'd call my gorilla table's rail amazing, but I've leaned on it for 6-8 hours at a stretch and never given it a second thought, so I guess that means its doing its job. Aw screw it, I think it's amazing!!GG rail is nothing amazing. Comfortable enough. Minimal height.
