With poker's popularity growing because of televised tournaments, retailers are betting that playing cards and chips will be among the must-have items during the holiday shopping season.
Stores are showcasing displays of casino-quality chips and gaming tables with holders for drinks and betting chips.
"I'm not a big poker player, but I know a lot about it because it's such a hot item," Kmart spokeswoman Caryn Klebba said. "It seems like the teenagers are in love with it."
Wal-Mart spokeswoman Karen Burk said the renewed interest in poker may make a deck of cards the top stocking stuffer of the holidays this year.
