Also Slev I am fine with you using any of my chips any time, even if I ain't there. There is a great deal on Desert Palms in the St Pattys day sale over at CT, I think .29 each. Boother has had these chips for years and they are really very nice. You can't beat them for the price IMO if you want a cash and tourney set of say 1200 or so chips.

25,000 says that Detroitdad is going to buy a set of Desert Palms.

100,000 says that they'll be for sale within 3 months of him buying them.

At least DD sells his unused chips. I have sold one set and bought maybe 9. I do look for bargain basement pricing, I guess that is the thrill for me.

Well, I decided against the chipco set. I prefer the look, feel, and sound of clays. Plus, I'm short on funds and the seller is not interested in a trade. That helped make the decision for me, too.

I really want to upgrade soon. I am tired of using the quality chips at my local card rooms, only to come home and unpack those nasty dice chips for my home games. I may start a thread in the trading post to see if anyone is up for a trade.

BTW, just in case anyone else might be interested in the chipco set... linky

Hi Jim - my name is Mike and I am a chiptalker (mike32) who has bought some
chipco's from you that I love! I live in South Lyon so I am very close. Also
several of my buddies have bought desert palms etc. A group of us SE
Michigan guys would love to come by and see the warehouse, post pics etc.
One guys (Quads) owns perfectmancave.com where lots of us are active. I am sure we
would also make some purchases at said trip if that would be ok. You can
reach me at
248.789.xxxx (cell) or text me there and we could hopefully set something up
on a saturday or sunday. You are mentioned in the forum there currently for
your st pattys day sale, lots of poker guys there!

Mike

Breakdown that is good for my cash games:
100x25 cent
200 dollar
200 five dollar
50 twenty five dollar

For quads multiply denoms by 4 or 5 depending.

Nice checking into that Mike. I'd like to check it out with you if I'm avail.
I also edited your thread and dropped email and phone numbers to stop crank calling, spam bots, etc. picking them up.

What do you want to do? 25c/50c game? You want to be able to play a $1/$2 game too? 10-person max? Is a $20 chip a possibility with the set, or is $25 standard?

For 10 players, 25c/50c blinds, $40 buyin, I'd go with:
120 x 25c
200 x $1
120 x $5
10 x $20/$25
Starting stack = 12 x 25c + 12 x $1 + 5 x $5

If you want your set to handle a $1/$2 game also, get:
120 x 25c
200 x $1
280 x $5
40 x $25
20 x $100
Starting stack: 20 x $1, 26 x $5, 2 x $25

You could go with a starting stack of 20 x $1, 16 x $5 and 4 x $25, but I prefer to have more reds on the table. Less reds would mean less overall chips and therefore a cheaper cost.

If you are buying a nice set to last a lifetime and give to your boy, I'd add some extra to those totals to account for a chip that gets lost/broken/damaged. I like even barrels (20 chips), so I'd an extra 20 of each denom.

Adjust totals if you can get a $20 chip in your set. I much prefer a $20 chip in a cash game, but that's just my personal preference.
