75x $1????
Honest to goodness what west Virgina casinos do for $200 buy in at 1-2 nl

this was a few years back before Covid when I dealt there. They have since changed a lot of stuff after Covid. We didn’t have a well/ or bank to make change (75% dealers couldn’t make change!!!!) chip runners and cage personnel 1 rack of chips for 1/2 nl $200 it was easy math for them 75 white 25 red. All fit In 1 rack!!

They would color you up . But normally people had 2-3 racks of 1 sitting on table. Crazy !

Why I always dealt 2-5 and 5-10 lol I didn’t mess with many $1s haha. Looked liked a 2-4 limit game!

I think monster stacks are fun so I prefer more smaller chips. And I also like more colors on the table so my vote is in the frac with 50¢-$1 camp. But I would make them quarters so the stacks are bigger.

I was wondering about that. Seems like a lot of $1s. I've only played in a casino a handful of times, but I've always been given only $5 chips from the cage when I buy in to a $1/2 or $1/3 game. Then the dealer makes change and provides a few $1s when I sit down. I fact, I have noticed sometimes there is a concerted effort to reduce the number of $1 chips on the table by the dealer often changing them up with $5s when there are quite a few in the pot.

I have told the story of my beginnings in poker many times before... and how that .25/.50 NLHE, $20 buy-in game with slugged plastic dice chips lead me to Chiptalk. We had a player that liked to hoard quarters. He loved to line his edge of the table with stacks of twenty five cent chips ten high, one row, then two... then three if he was running good. Felting him was like hitting the jackpot on a one arm bandit in days of ole.

Barrels upon barrels of assorted chips would get pushed my way. I would separate the quarters from the dollars and whatever few fives found their way into the pot. I would count what I had dragged in as I stacked, 20 quarters, four ones, twenty more quarters, three ones, another twenty quarters, three more ones... oh, and a five! Goddamn... another twenty quarters, five more ones. Fuck me! More quarters!

After taking time between hands to stack all the slippery bastards, what would happen? Again and again? With the slightest brush of my arm or the smallest knock of the table or a cough from the player opposite of me... the neatly stacked barrels would spill over into a huge heap, waiting for me to re-stack them.

So here I am years later spending thousands of dollars on "clay" poker chips for no other reason than to avoid having to re-stack plastic slugged chips valued at a quarter.

I’m sort of confused by the original post.

When hosting a 1/2 game, I need far more $5s than 1s.

Anyway, I do like having some $2 chips around. It means I need fewer $1s, and it adds MOAR color to stacks and pots.
