I was surprised to see I'm only a couple dozen posts away from hitting 1k, so I wanted to commemorate that eventuality by running a giveaway! I'll be hopefully getting my New China Club cards mold set this coming week, so I'm giving away this sample set that @PAZ sent me; it's the first thing that I ever got on PCF, and I thought I'd pay it forward! :)

($1 and higher denoms have the Keno Queen in the green dress on the other side.)

To enter, please comment mentioning the first person, or whoever you remember in your early days, on PCF who helped you out--feel free to elaborate on how!

Edit: Alternatively, still comment to enter, but mention someone new to the community who might benefit from checking out this sample set!


(I know other giveaways have done this, so I hope it's not too repetitive, but I think it's nice to give "helpers" (as Mr. Rogers said to seek out) more recognition rather than less.)

One entry per person. I'll be taking entries until I hit 1,000 posts, at which point I will close entries at 11:59pm Pacific time on that day (I'll comment with a reminder). Then I'll compile a list of all entrants and use a RNG to pick a winner. I'll mail to an U.S. address for free or to an international address for actual cost (minus $3 shipping credit). Good luck everyone!

@Seeking Alpha Social Club was incredibly welcoming as I was getting started (only a few months ago)…and I am hoping to meet some of the DMV crew soon for a tourney they are running.

And @Chawks45 taught me a few things as I started down this rabbit hole.

In all candor, the whole community has been incredible. Very easy/understanding bunch. Thanks all!

I don't know if anyone helped me out per se but I did a lot of early deals back in the day with @rimmerryan
Mostly I would send him money on Stars and he would send me chips. :)

Like these Harbor Lights from 2008:

Already have a sample so not IN.. but I like this unique request of "when you joined kindness memories" going to do a Ben book here with 3 categories worth mentioning for me!

#1 @ChaosRock my buddy Paulo who I hopefully finally get to eat in a couple weeks at SQM. When I joined Paulowas the one that set time aside for e to answer the noob questions of what chips to pursue and why. Still remember the categories you broke it down into and why for each! Again later for breaking up your limit set to help a chipper achieve his first Paulson set. All of your kindness and in depth responses have resonated with me ever since buddy!

PS: Your Aces are still safe and sound in their larger family, even grown a bit!

Which brings me to category #2. The first person who sent me something for free! I was close to completing this set way back in the early days and ran a wanted ad for a few random chips I need to finish up racks. I had reached out to @pltrgyst about Aces but got no response... guessing Larry thought I was just another noob stopping in for a quick set and running off. When I posted this picture in my wanted ad needing only a few chips he immediately reached out and asked for my address

I was like... "but wait we haven't discussed price" he said "this ones on me" not even shipping. I was so confused and excited. Not sure what to think about someone just giving me hard to find chips! Seriously think you Larry that's what this place is all about. I also remember thinking... "how can I pay this forward? I don't really have anything nice to give" but as time goes by many others have sent me gifts and many others have recieved the same generosity that Larry showed me back in my early days chipping

Category #3 goes to @krafticus for reaching out to complete strangers and inviting Brie and I to our first meet up! We had only been in the hobby a couple months and nobody knew who we were but yet Mark reached out, explained it was not about the money but just getting together with other chippers. Well we did! We are now regulars in his game, one of my best chipping buddies and it was a gateway to what Brie and I call life now, traveling around and playing poker all over the country, sometimes with total strangers! A shot from that first meet up! I made the final table but it was short lived! Lol

Had no idea the talent in that room at the time! I was soo out matched!

Anyways those are my earliest memories of appreciation from when I joined PCF just 3 short years ago even though it seems like much longer!

Love you PCF Fam

And Congratulations @TheOffalo for finally making it to your 1000th post! Looking forward to the next thousand Brother!

Your chippin buddy
Ben

You are always our example of generosity, Ben. And way kinder towards me than I hope to deserve. The community is ever richer to have you around.

Looking forward to meet you in Anna Maria!

Might want to make sure he isn’t going to make good on his initial proposition…

Though I can write book-length posts like @Ben8257, I am not a Ben, but I'll take it as a compliment! ;)

Yikes, nice catch! Didn't realize Ben was a cannibal...
