Yes I know 2 barrels of the 1ks are the wrong color... they are a spot holder for the time being though!

(100) more $500s (I know... you don't need that many... but I love them!)
(100) more $1000s

A little more future proofing the top end with
(260) more $5000s
(40) more $25,000s

Upward to custom MSK plaques
(100) $100,000
(20) $500,000

Then it will be future proofed for $100,000 deep stack $100/$200 starting, 500 BB and tons of rebuys!

Cash set still needs some work!

Almost done! Lmao!!

Absolutely amazing horde!

I'm building for 7 tables, myself...!

I used to play in an illegal card room in Baltimore where we ran 7 - 9 full tables for weekend tourneys. They had a 24 /7/365 $1/$2 cash game for a long time. Even Ravens players would come play!! Also a member on the forum played in that game... but again none of us should have been there so don't want to mention him. He will likely read this thoug and know the game I am talking about!!

Sundays were fun too!! Alternating weekends of Omaha and 7 stud. The stud game would bring all the retired Jockeys from Pimlico Race Track... can you imagine sitting and playing poker with the entire lolly pop guild!! It was awesome, and damn good card players too!!

@Anthony Martino nothing but love brother... this was not meant in any reference to you! For the record... USA!! USA!!!

Why would @Anthony Martino get upset by your comment? I'm sure he doesn't have anything against lolly pops.
Cubans, maybe. But not lollypops.

I love the track. When I lived in DC, every summer was a pilgrimage to the infield at Pimlico for the Preakness. Often it was after a weekend roadtrip to do the same for the derby. Did the stands once when I was older and had a friend with a horse in the race, but prefer the infield party.

I don't ever foresee ever covering a 70 player game... and if it was PCF based... they would want better chips!! Lol
Hmmm... I would like to challenge PCF to produce photographic evidence of 70 player breakdowns they own (that actually get used for tourneys). Like... ANY other 70 player set. Then perhaps we can see where these stand in the rankings Ben.

@allforcharity is working on a set... My 05s don't rank very high... but this has been a ton of work building and I am proud of where I am... rather you are a fan or not. You guys have watched this journey for me, and it wouldn't be possible without all the help from PCF!! You guys are the best!!

My latest plan is actually 60 players... but awesome stacks!

If I ever get to retrieve the chips that are waiting for me in WA state, I might be able to do a 7 table T10K set with 8/8/6/6, but I'd love to be able to do 12/12/7/5 instead. I think I'm near....
12/12 is the way to go. I really hope you make it there one day! Would be amazing to see 2 massive CDI sets!

Embarrassed I am just getting through this thread now, but glad I did. @Ben8257, anyone can acquire a large collection of chips with the the right amount of cash, but I think there are few that could do it with the enthusiasm and excitement you do. Your energy is infectious and great for PCF!

@FordPickup92 that PCA set is awesome! Super jealous of that one!

Little glimpse at the RHC line up (might be changing the greens out in the future, same color chip and edgespot pattern, different color edgespots)

I should know this - but what is the orange/yellow RHC chips? I am building a similar set and I am curious!

You know... sometimes it's just crazy to sit back and think that less than a year ago... I was making moves to put this set together... not a huge set but enough for 6 players... had 3 pieces of this puzzle lined up, just waiting on the funds.

These are not for sale! But damn they are amazing!!

I don't love the pink 5. The rest of that lineup is damn near as sexy as it gets. Small pot splashed pic please.

The $5 is limited because of the orange $500... obviously the coveted red Lodge $5 is the right chip there but that would never happen! Lol

We are headed to a B day party right now Bill but I would happily splash em for ya when we get home!!

Also I do love the pink, I love how it ties back to the $500... the bad part is the pink in the $1k that I would never find anyway... but my though was, running a T2k that I would never have the T5 and T1k in play at the same time... still sucks to overlap the colors!

Matty's Red would be fire in that line up though! I have a single and can atleast show a mock up and tiny splash later on!
