      Today while I was reading some article in some poker site, I've seen a poker player who had headphones in his ears. I've seen many players doing that but today for the first time I wondered how do they hear, betting amount of the opponent. Since I'm %99 sure that there can't be a radio broadcasting for each table. How do they do it ?

      Another thing is I assume that one who has a iPod or Mp3 player would listen to music volume up/max right ? :f_biggrin:

      Have you noticed the dealer cutting the chips after each bet? The dealer cuts the chips in stacks of around 5 chips per stack, and with the last stack spreads the chips out so the player can see how many chips are in each stack.

      A little like this.

      Cool.. I think soon there will be digital chips so the time wasted while counting the chips will be past...

      I think Casinos will change their tables with Microsoft Table to rake even more $$

      hell no.... there will never be digital chips for poker. I would refuse to play live games w/o chips.
