Longtime poker player (20+ years) and poker chip collection newbie here. Recently found my way onto this forum while searching for HSI secondary chips to compliment my HSI primary chip collection. Long story short, discovering this site already has cost me a decent chunk of money as I decided to start with a bang by purchasing HSI Lot #3 from SpaceMonkey420. At this point I am just hoping the PCF classified section doesn't lead to me having to post a threat entitled #RIPMarriage in the near future.

Welcome to the forum. You will find a ton of NW chippers hanging around here.

Welcome! This is quite normal around here!

It can get out of hand really quick! The number one tell tail sign is when a big awesome box of chips comes in the mail! You are more excited than Christmas morning when you were 10 and Sega Genisis just came out... you RIP the paper back on one corner and see SE... and your heart stops. Yeah that same feeling! BUT when you open that beautiful box of chips, stack them, shuffle them a couple times, take a pic and post in the mail pron thread... then immediately push them to the side and get back on the classifieds looking for more. If that happens... RIP marriage, bank account, all feelings of being normal escape. You are hooked, it's a disease and none of us have found the cure, but we do have rooms for rent under the bridge! Its actually what The Red Hot Chilli Peppers were in reference to... not Heroine. This is way worse! Haha

I haven't even received my new allotment of chips yet and I'm already refreshing the classifieds at an alarming frequency, which I've self-diagnosed as a problem.

Welcome from Lake Stevens!
Nice, my wife is from Lake Stevens!

Sweet, sounds like the makings of some good home game tournaments

Great wine tasting in your neck of the woods! This is a deep dark rabbit hole of bliss..... and sucking of money! But you've come to the right place for poker chip wisdom! Better than 50/50 chance your marriage survives.... no science... just being a half glass full kind of guy! Enjoy!

Are we talking a true 50/50-coinflip or a pocket pair versus two overs 50/50-coinflip here?

Welcome -- I don't post up much anymore, but certainly have been through the chip addiction fun. I've taught in the Northshore School District many years (serves Woodinville for those not around here). Who knows, maybe we're neighbors! ha! Enjoy this place -- loads of great folks with a wealth of knowledge. Just get samples before buying anything! :tup:

Thanks and I appreciate the advice. I have kids in Woodinville HS and Cottage Lake area elementary and middle schools.
