I've finally almost completed my Terrible primary and secondary sets. Found these two sets on ebay so I snatched them up right away. Now I just need to have my custom labels made for some 1k and 5k chips!

These babies are all mine :)

Secondary

I am so thrilled I found these sets, I was starting to think I'd never find secondary 500's or for that matter a primary one for a decent price. :). I'll post up a picture once I have these and my 3 anniversary chips in my spade chip display case.

Just finished making the 5k label in photoshop:

Secondary: (might need to darken up the background a bit so it matches closer to the real secondary chips

This is a cheap case I just bought off ebay. It only holds 500 of them so the rest are in a different case but I liked it because it had a glass top so you could actually see the chips in the case. Need to have a Terrible's St Jo Dealer Chip made one of these days to go in there along with some dice.

Sure did lol. I couldn't resist. I'm planning on selling my brand new Milano's and my goal is to make a complete Terrible set. With the additional 40 5's from you I am up to 360 Terrible little problems :).

I think this is your best bet. New, and $1 each. Probably could get it a little cheaper as they are not selling and have been re-listed dozens of times.

I was thinking about those too. I might see if they'd be interested in just selling me a barrel of them. I don't plan to need more then a handful of the 5k chips. Yeah when I saw those 25's I had to snatch them up quick for that price lol.

I think both the grey and charcoal are awesome looking but I'd prob go with the light grey.
I like the lighter grey too

More pron! Got my spade chip display filled with primary and secondaries and anniversary chips :)

It's surprisingly hard to take a picture of this without glare etc... the bumpy waviness you can see in the black is my ceiling reflected in the black plexiglass :/

Very nice. You got to put the $1k chip at the top! Maybe put the higher denoms at the top?

Thanks! Yeah I was kind of wondering how I'd re-arrange it once I get the 1k and 5k chips. Decisions decisions

Maybe like this. Not sure where a $5k would go though.

Yeah that one St Jo chip at the top that doesn't say Terrible's wouldn't be the end of the world if I dropped that one in place of a 1k chip. Just need to figure out what other chip I'd drop once I get the 5k chips made. I would maybe drop one of the 100's once I get the 5k.

Lol I may have to do that. I can't wait to get the other 3 suits and fill those with other cool sample sets. Just gotta figure out which ones are in my budget (otherwise I would have already purchased your PNY sample set lol).

How did you configure your starting stacks with the chips that you have?
We had 60 chips per player. 20 .50's, 20 1's, 12 5's, 7 25's, and 1 100. Blind were .50/1.00 for the first 30 minutes so our starting stack was 365 big blinds. Tourney lasted for 3.5 hours. I ended up winning so I got 160 dollars plus 3 bounty chips from knocking players out ($5.00 each) :). Definitely could have used more 25's and 100's though. At the end when we were heads up the blinds were 100/200 and we were using basically all 25's because my set only has 10 100's :/.

First of all, congrats on the win :)

Second, you could use the 25s, 1s, and 5s as 25/100/500 and get a better starting stack/tourney structure going.

Third, you should also get a tourney set so that no one is tempted to pull chips from the tourney into your cash game or vice versa, that is if you play both on the same night. You might have total trust that no one in your game would do this but people sometimes do strange things when money is involved, no matter how low the stakes. Add alcohol to the mix and it could be troublesome. With two separate sets that worry gets thrown right out the window. :)

Thanks! Yeah it was nice winning some money after how much I've spent on the buying the chips :).

So skip the .50's all together your saying?

I have a 700 chip set of Royal Yaks which we use for our cash games for that very reason. They are all a good bunch of guys but I'd rather be safe then sorry. My Yak set I had yellow nickels made because we do .05/.10 blinds (big ballers lol).

Hey you just won a tournament! Big baller indeed :)

I would skip the 0.50s. A set works best when the jump between each successive chip is 4x-5x, hence my recommendation of 25/100/500. Ever notice how all the casino chip sets you see are $1/$5/$25/$100/$500? Lots of tournaments have a 500 and 1000 denom which clearly contradicts this advice but this is because it's a reset to the 1/5/25/1000, i.e. 25/100/500 then 1000/5000/25,000/100,000 etc.

From the looks of it, you could easily have a STT using the 25/100/500 scale with starting stacks of 8/8/8 or 8/8/4/2. 100 BB stacks starting at 25/50 blinds.

Yeah that's a good point about the jumping by 4 to 5 scale. I thought about that when I was starting to buy my Terrible's but I just loved how the pink really popped so before I knew it I had 260 of them lol.

If we didn't play such low stakes for our cash games (.05/.10) we could use the Terrible's as a cash game set but we're all post college and post bought our first houses broke so we have to keep the stakes low lol.

Once I get some 500's and more 100's that 8/8/8 would definitely work for a STT :)

Added a few pics to the first post so they are more consolidated. I bought a cheap ebay chip display so I've got 500 of them in there now and the rest in a normal case.

Senor Queso has been warned.

I have filed a chip restraining order against Senor Queso with The High Court of PCF. The charges are as follows:

Chip stalking across multiple forums.

Senor Queso is hereby order to stay at least 50 ft away from my chips at all times. If Senor Queso would like to file for court supervised visitation, he may do so at The High Court of PCF.

That is all
