Has anybody found the perfect chair for a good price?I'm thinking about this...http://www.bizchair.com/wd5330-os.htmlOr this...http://www.bizchair....a019b01-gg.htmlor maybe this...http://www.luxurycha...irs/LC5266.htmlIf anybody knows of a site that has similar chairs for better prices it would be cool.Maybe this will need to be moved but I think it's poker related, since I'm buying it to sit in while playing poker.

My mom has the third one, I don't like it very much. The second looks nice.

I got a herman miller aeron knockoff from staples for $179 - they still have them.. They are by far the best and most comfortable for long sessions.

I've always thought one of those massage chairs would be great for a long poker session.I like the luxurychair one though.

The one thing I can't stand about most office chairs that are big and squishy looking like that is that when you sit in it after a month, the seat cushioning gives in and you're butt is hitting solid wood/plastic/whatever. I have one of those massaging chairs and the cushioning in the seat went down so fast that I had to go out and by some leather cushions to put in the chair (which actually worked nicely and match the chair well)Also if you get a massage chair be warned that it won't be as cushy as there are motors and whatnot inside it and it also needs to have less material inbetween that and your back so that it actually lets you feel anything shaking.I'd definitely suggest giving them some test sits and seeing if the seat padding is going to be thick enough to last a while.Also before anyone mentions it, no I'm not extremely overweight or even fat... I'm 155 pounds. Maybe it's my lack of *** that makes sitting in harder chairs uncomfortable... but I still think most of these luxury office chairs don't actually provide much cushion even though they look very comfortable at first glance.

im still not sold that many of these people that get these big online scores are winners when it comes to the live game, which, by the way, is real poker.

Costco. I love the chair I have from there. They only have 2 or so and 1 is a cheapy so hard not to figure out which one I am talking about.

whe it comes to chairs you get what you pay for. Spend a little more and it will be well worth it in the long run.

I have tried a swiss ball in front of my computer at home. Unfortunately for me it sits me much higher than a normal chair would so I am stooping down to reach the keyboard, which probably doesn't do you much good.
