Default Card Protectors...

What do you guys use for a card protector in live games?

If not an active chip then I use a large coin with all of the electrical formulas etched on it. When people can't make sense of it I tell them they are the formulas for calculating odds. This throws them for a loop, them thinking like anyone actually calculates those numbers.

What not to use:
----------------

I once used a fun-sized Halloween box of the candy 'Hot Tomales" as a card protector. The fat kid next to me kept asking me where I got them and if I had any more. When I told him it was my only box he asked me if he could have them because he loved them so much. I said when I was done using them he could have them.

After the first break in the tournament I noticed my box of Hot Tomales was empty. I made the fat kid show me his teeth, which were full of red candy gel. He said, "well, you weren't using them."

I hate card protectors and I don't use them.

"Live" I will use chips to help keep track of the pot. Example, if I am in a pot and call a raise to 10.00 with three players seeing the flop, I will put three whites on my cards to help me remember pot size, since the chips are mixed up by the dealer. Not perfect, but I spend too much attention following the players and too little on the pot>>>>spoiled by online play.


Ps. LOL
