Hello all. I'm new to this Poker Chip Forum website. It has always been a go to read and research site for me. Today I just decided to join.

I run some local tournaments here in Southern California (Long Beach area) and have been collecting poker chips for many, many years.

My poker chip preferences:

Cash games: Key West Poker Chips
Tournaments: WSOP replica chips. I had the 43mm $500k, $1 million, and $5 million chips custom made. The $25k and $100k chips are the 39mm chip type. I would go for the updated Caesar's WSOP Main Event poker chips but those chips look a little too plain for my tastes.

I've recently purchased an EPT poker chip set as part of my collection. All I can say is: damn poker chip collecting can be addicting.

Hello and welcome to the forum! I love your high denom tournament set! Looks like you have a nice setup! Prepare yourself for the rabbit hole!!!
 
Thank you MrBoosh. That whole WSOP Replica Set was purchased from an Australian seller on eBay. This the breakdown of my WSOP Replica chips:

39MM CHIPS:
$25,000 chips = 500 total
$100,000 = 606 total
* $250,000 = 353 total (yes I do have these $250k chips from around the 2014 era)
* $500,000 = 450 total (I have a set of the smaller $500k chips, but they are obsolete now because of the bigger 43mm chips that I bought - see below)

43MM CHIPS:
$500,000 = 350 total
$1,000,000 = 500 total
$5,000,000 = 200 total

* means I don't use these anymore.

The Key West poker chip set.

I wised up and figured out how to insert the pictures properly.

Here's the Key West cash game set. It's grown over the years and I now have 1200 of these chips from 0.25 cents to $100.

Welcome to PCF! I need to get myself some nice chairs some day for my table I ordered. I bought some costco folding chairs to start with and when I can afford some better ones. Your chairs seem a little big to fit at a 10 person table. Those limit you to 8?

Love the set up! I’m also in Long Beach and would love to hear more about your tournaments. Shoot me a PM.
 
Thanks. Currently I'm in the Downtown Long Beach area. I saw your Poker At The Barr Long Beach, CA poker chips and had to follow your postings. I was immediately hooked when I saw them. They are easily in the top 3 poker chip sets I've seen.

One of these days I'll try to throw my annual WSOP Main Event tourney where we use the 43mm $1 million and $5 million chips. COVID put an end to that for awhile, but it was always fun but tiring having to organize 3 tables full of people and play in the tournament at the same time.
