So, what can you use to protect your cards? It can be anything, as long as it's not obnoxiously big and restricts other players' view of the table. It can also not be anything offensive.
A famous example of a player known for their protector is WSOP champion Greg ‘Fossilman' Raymer. He was an avid fossil collector and would bring a fossil from his collection to every game to protect his cards.
Here are some ideas for card guards.
Players' most common protector is simply a chip from their stack. Always use the same number of chips to not reveal your card value subconsciously. You could also use a lucky chip from another game or casino, as long as it's different from the chips used in the current game.
Personal Lucky Charms
Many poker players have items of sentimental value that they use as lucky charms. If they're small enough, these kinds of things make wonderful protectors. Whether that's a coin you received from your father, a cuff link from your loved one, or a cross from church (or other religious items.)
Companies have cottoned on to the popularity of protectors and have started producing metal chips specifically for this purpose. You can engrave these metal chips with anything you like.
Traditional Lucky Charms
The traditional lucky charm will do just as well. Think of a four-leaf clover keychain, a horseshoe, or a rabbit's foot. There are many wonderful and unique ways to use a lucky charm as a protector.
At a live poker game, players use all sorts of items as protectors. Small animal figurines, cartoon characters, and LEGO are some of them. You can use anything you want, as long as it's the right size and not offensive.
You certainly won't need protectors when you play poker games online, and at BetMGM, there are plenty of games to choose from. Then there's also the BetMGM blog, filled with excellent information and advice on how to win against passive players.
