Good afternoon. 1001% newbie here, from GA USA. I have been playing poker with friends and neighbors but never gotten into the poker chips fever. After reading the plethora of info in the forums, I am now looking to get my first set of chips. Of course i would love Paulson´s but, although my taste is that of champagne, my budget is that of moonshine. Anyone with a Pharaohs or Dunes CC cash set to sell for a reasonable price?
Definition of reasonable: Something that the wife will not fuzz about for more than a week.

See you around!

welcome, and i second the ceramics recommendation over china clays. in my experience, china clays just make you wish you had "real" clays (and they smell funny), whereas ceramics are their own (non-smelly) beast you can be happy with on their own, and you can customize them for basically the same price. of course this is just one man's opinion and YMMV.

If you need a "wife friendly" budget, have you looked at ceramics from www.brpropoker.com?
Thanks! I{ll be looking into it.

Thanks for the welcome. I appreciate the recommendation...

Welcome and always get samples before you make a big purchase. There's a lot to choose from at any budget level so just make sure you get to touch, play and smell the chips before you buy. Yes, I said smell because some chips have distinctive smells.
