The “playground” of the game of poker–poker tabletops–are constructed with sheets plywood. Usually, the tabletops are covered with poker cloth or billiard felt. However, some tabletops use faux suede or velveteen. The quality and type of material used varies with price. Wealthy poker enthusiasts can have their poker tabletops made of costly premium wood and leather.

Poker tabletops, unsurprisingly, assume the shape of the table, which are generally of three shapes: round, oval, and octagonal. A standard, full-size Texas Hold'em eight-player poker table comes with dimensions of 91″” × 46.”” Poker table manufacturers make tables built to order with the colors and graphics preferred by the client. These are as popular as readymade poker tables. Pokercats, a major poker table manufacturer, also sells poker table building supplies, including poker tabletops. Royal Gaming Products sells high-quality, fully customizable poker tables, with tabletops selected by the buyers.

Online poker game sites offer an entirely different display. Dynamic table backgrounds are the most noticeable peculiarity of online poker game sites. The tabletop changes with changing rounds. A player who makes it to the final table of a tournament could have gone through a number of tabletops. A player can play on WSOP tables by playing in a WSOP satellite. Custom-designed poker tabletops are not far away. Players will eventually have the right to design their own custom table backgrounds and use them in custom tournaments. Thus, uninteresting, commonplace tables that look the same can be changed into custom-made tables that reflect the player's individuality.
