I have always been more into playing poker rather than collecting poker chips. For me, poker chips always seemed to be dirty,and simply a piece of equipment like a hockey stick or chess piece. In other words, I never really cared and would prefer online over live; however, recently, I've become really obsessed with some high -end pokerchips. So I guess my question to all my fellow chippers is this, how many of you are into simply collecting poker chips over playing and getting better at the game? I assume many strike a balance and love poker, but then I also have a feeling there's quite a few collectors on the forum as well. Just curious and hope to hear some feedback!
