Long time poker player, but relative newcomer to the chip community. Was doing some half-assed internet research on finding a set of chips for sale that match the aesthetic of ones used in a certain establishment that shares a name with a Mediterranean locale. ;). Eventually I found myself here and although it appears I’ve long missed the boat on that set, I’ve been learning a lot about other sets that tickle my fancy bone. Looking forward to doing a lot of reading here.

Originally I was looking for the “ACB/BW” set. Additionally I have a couple of hundred dollars or so in samples from various sets from Apache and from Amazon as well. I’d love to get a sample set of the 43mm and 39mm Polyinnos but that’s proving to be quite difficult.

Perhaps try a wanted ad here for the samples alot of us were new members once and theres quite a plethora of new members over the last few months, I'm sure someone has one they dont need any more

Looks like you found the meetup thread, but fyi I also run a monthly game, there are several PCFers that play. Details here:

https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/north-central-nj-monthly-nlhe-tournament.14179/

Usually its a tourney but we will be mixing in more cash nights (March game will be .25/.50 NLHE cash). Shoot me a PM if you'd like more info. BWs will probably be in play.
Will do, and subscribed to the thread. Thanks!


Hello and welcome! Love your avatar!
Appreciate it. That’s me in my Vader costume. I do hospital visits and charity events as a member of the 501st Legion.

Thats really awesome. As someone whose family has been on the receiving end of hospital events like this, thank you so much, it really means the world to families to take a break from their trials to smile for a bit. :tup:

It’s why we do what we do, to bring a little happiness and distraction to those that need it. I am a cancer survivor myself and know all too well the feeling of isolation and despair that can fester and grow out of control as a hospital stay grows longer and longer. :(

Some more Vader pics for those interested (since I don’t have any chip pRon pics to share, might as well share some Vader lol):
