Texas hold’em is played all round the world. It is also becoming more and more popular in Australia. If you are in Australia and want to host your own poker nights, you will need the right supplies. Here are a few ideas of where best to get poker supplies in Australia.

Iconicpokersupplies.com.au have a huge range of poker supplies on offer. They have everything you could need or want for your game at very competitive prices. Their packages are good: you can get a large foldable table, a 500 chip set, two packs of cards, a dealer button and cut card for $305.

One word of caution: when buying poker supplies, we recommend that you steer clear of automatic card shufflers: they are noisy, most don’t work well, and simply put, they're just a pain. If you get one as part of a bundle, don’t open it and put it straight on eBay for some sucker to buy!
