Imagine you’re in a high-stakes game and are confident you have the winning hand. But wait, can you keep your opponents’ guessing? Keeping a straight face is harder than you think, but if you can learn to control even the smallest tics in both your facial expressions and body language, you can emerge victorious.
Relax Your Face: Your facial expressions are the first giveaway, making it imperative that you master the art of relaxation. You don’t want to clench your jaw and appear overly tense over the cards in your hand. Before you start the game, take a deep breath and clear your mind.
Focus Your Eyes: Show the other players that you are confident and intimidating by making eye contact throughout the game. Be careful though, you don’t want to come across as overly concerned about your current hand. If you’re worried that you’re line of sight might be a weak point, toss on a pair of sunglasses and play it cool the whole game through.
Master Your Body Language: You may be able to keep your facial expressions clear, but the charade doesn’t stop there. Body language works in tandem and again, relaxation is key. Shake out any tension and settle into a natural, upright position. Be sure to avoid any unnecessary fidgeting including tapping, pulling on your clothing, or rubbing your hands together.
Don’t Shout About It: Your voice is also a potential giveaway to your opponents. Keep an even, balanced tone to avoid a nervous quiver or an excited change in octave. If you suspect your voice will give you away, simply nodding or shaking your head will do in a pinch.
If you’re ready to show off your new poker face skills, we’d love to host your next party. From big events to family affairs, AcesUp offers a variety of tables for your gaming needs. Visit our site for our current internet specials or to request a proposal today!
Congratulations on being engaged! Planning a wedding is an exciting thing to do, but it can also be very stressful. There are a lot of things to consider like time and date, venue, refreshments, guest count, and officiator. And those are just the logistics. Beyond that are details like dresses, hair, accessories, tuxes, flowers, decorations, etc.
Your wedding is an opportunity for you and your soon-to-be-spouse to showcase your personalities in a celebration featuring you, but it can sometimes be difficult to find a balance between what you want and what your traditionalist grandmother or mother insists on.
Are you wanting to plan a wedding that breaks from tradition? While it may be important to you that you incorporate traditional items (something borrowed, something blue…), you don’t have to stick to a traditional theme. Make your wedding an event that not only you, but guests will remember for years to come by having a casino themed wedding.
Attire: Go for an all-out James Bond look. No fluffy, pastry-like dress needed. Opt for a lighter, sleek, and sexy wedding dress and bodycon bridesmaid dresses. Have the groom and groomsmen wear fitted tuxes and invite guests to dress to help set the atmosphere.
Entertainment: At Aces Up Casino Parties we offer delivery, setup, and break down of a number of popular casino games. Choose from craps, roulette, blackjack, Texas Hold’em, and even more! Our packages range from small to large groups and we come to any venue that you choose from your own backyard to the hotel grand room of your favorite San Francisco Bay Area hotel.
Refreshments: We know that nothing goes better with a casino night than alcohol. That’s why we now offer bar services including a light-up bar, quality bartenders, and all the bar tools needed for a night to remember.
Decorations: To complete your casino themed wedding celebration, we also offer custom LED-lit table signs for all of our tables except poker and they’re free with your booking!
Don’t spend all of your time planning and prepping, enjoy being engaged and leave the hard work to us! For more information about our current internet specials or to request a proposal, visit us at www.acesup.com.

Having All the Guys Over
As you grow older, work and family take precedent over spending time with your buds. Rather than lose a friendship that has lasted years, make the effort to stay in touch by planning a “Boys Only” night every so often.
Hosting an evening for the guys can be quite simple. Choose some great food and drinks everyone will love and pick an activity everyone can be comfortable doing. Such as watching the latest baseball game. Anything that will give you the time to sit around and chat is a great way to keep up with one another.
Casino Parties in Oakland, CA
The end of the year is fast-approaching and, if you’re like everyone else, you probably haven’t given any thought to the holidays. What presents to buy, which relatives to visit, what to cook for holiday dinners…these are all things that will keep you busy once the time is near, but one thing really shouldn’t wait that long: planning your company’s holiday party.
You probably don’t want to think about work when it comes to the holidays, but if you’re tasked with planning your company’s office parties and events, then it pays to think ahead. November, January, and especially December are peak months for the events industry (especially casino party companies.) Friday and Saturday evenings during these months are extremely busy for most event companies, so begin planning during the summer months to help ensure you have access to the venues, caterers, DJ’s, casino companies(!), and other vendors you prefer.
You should first find a location for your event: think about the type of party you’re trying to hold for your employer and what activities you have planned. Do you want a hip, fun place to party, like a nightclub or bar and lounge? A more elegant and serious setting like the Ritz or a restaurant on the water? How about size? Do you need room for 2000+ people or a small space for just 50-60 guests? Locating a venue that works for your event is a big part of the work that goes into event planning; once this part is decided, the rest usually falls into place nicely.
After selecting your venue, you’ll want to focus on the food and entertainment for the party. Most larger venues offer their own catering, but others do not. There are plenty of caterers in the San Francisco Bay Area to choose from, but again, they’ll book up fast for the holiday party season. Along with caterers, entertainment companies are also really busy during the later months of the year. Secure your entertainment early, so you don’t rush around at the last minute looking for someone to fill in. Since a big part of what DJ’s, bands, and casino companies provide is their staff, they don’t always have a lot of inventory to work with. It’s not as easy as pulling rental items out of storage to bring to your event – they actually have to have fun and friendly people to provide you with as well. By booking well in advance, you ensure you’ll get the best staff the vendor has to offer!
While we love to gamble, it doesn’t pay to roll the dice when it comes to event planning: Don’t wait until the last minute to plan your event and don’t just book the first entertainment company you come in contact with. Put in a little effort early on and devote some time to viewing all available options – we guarantee this will improve the outcome of your event.
Entertaining Your Guests
If there is one thing a host must do when throwing a party, it is to ensure that all of their guests have a great time. One way to do this is by planning an activity that everyone can participate in. This is especially important for events when people are meeting for the first time, such as conferences. An activity will enable everyone to get to know one another without having to suffer any awkward chit-chat.
