Just wanted to take a minute to say hello, have been a poker enthusiast since I played my first game 18 years ago in what possibly may be the dingiest basement known to man. Have not looked back since then. Most of my play is online, with some live sprinkled in when I have some time off work. I was recently reminiscing about all the good times and memories my buds and I had in that dingy basement, and thought I would like to start up a weekly home game. ( in a less dingy setting of course ) Unsure how many of the old faces would make it out these days but I'm hopeful I can recruit at least 6 on a weekly basis. The thought of starting a home game got me thinking about purchasing a table and my research led me Tchan, which led me here, and lets just say I have caught the chip disease. All these years playing and I never realized what a work of art a stack, or even better an entire set can be. I have spent a few night shifts going through numerous posts and it seems like a really good community with a bunch of great people willing to share knowledge and help new chippers like me. I have a long way to go and a lot to learn ( and a few overtime shifts to work ), but I am pretty excited and cant wait to get started on this new adventure. Also wanted to say thanks for everything I've learned so far and all the beautiful pictures you guys have posted, without you guys I'd be ordering a set dice chips and oblivious to the beauty of the hobby.
