I have had a few sets of cheap dice chips over the years. Just scored some Chipco custom cash chips on Craigslist from a local poker club that shut down. I think they are a really cool peice of local history that I can actually use and enjoy!

I could be mistaken, but wasn't "The Poker Club, LLC" in Rochester the poker school that got shut down for illegal gambling?

Hey @tabletalker7 I did a little research and found these 2 articles about the poker club chips. You were 100% on the money, the club these chips came from was raided by the Greater Rochester Area Narcotics Enforcement Team. I have put pics of the articles below. Thanks for the info!!

If I remember right (it has been 15 years) you are one rack of 5's and 2 racks of unlabeled fracs from the dealer school set. Two tables were used for dealers school, each table had a tray worth 1500 in chips. Wow this posting is a trip down memory lane.
