Greetings to my fellow Poker enthusiasts. I am a new member to this forum and I'm looking forward to everyones knowledge, guidance, and friendships. I live on the beautiful gulf coast of Florida and previously resided in New Jersey. I miss the poker action of Atlantic City however the beach life isn't horrible. I am a professional Santa Claus and during the holiday season I am in the northeast tri-state area bringing joy to believers. I have been playing poker for many years and have been a member of several poker leagues which have always fostered lasting friendships. I am hoping to find camaraderie among this group as well. I'm also hopeful that in time I will find my own high end "casino quality" poker chip set (maybe Aurora Star) so I can start my own home poker league and feel proud of my chips. If anyone is heading to any South Florida table games or wants to visit the beach life just reach out. All the best to everyone!

Welcome Santa... I hope someone decides to sell Santa a set of Santa Ysabels that were just sold in the group buy, they are beautiful and honestly reasonably priced! O

Do you carry the real beard all year round? There is a gentleman that is Santa all year round in south Myrtle Beach. He asks kids everyday if they are being good and gives them wooden nickles for a free round of mini golf! True legend!!

Saddly I am 37 and my beard is going further towards the white side every day... the gut is about right too, I tell everyone I'm in Santa Training! Do you accept apprentices? Lol

They call me Black Beard for now... but it's only a matter of time! Might as well start accepting my fate!!!

Welcome! There are some members in Florida who host games and have excellent chips! Also great to hear you travel up north for your Santa adventures, lots of awesome members round these parts as well. Aurora stars are beautiful chips and should leave you feeling more than proud to have on the table for your friends!

A merry welcome to you, Santa! I am so glad you found the boards. Now I might stop mailing you letters and just use PMs instead.

Welcome to the forum. Professional Santa Claus, Love it. I am a clown so I know the joy that is shown on kids faces by what you and I do.

I have a friend who is a professional Santa Claus. He was a Professional Clown and was Clown Ambassador for Ringling Brothers back in the day. He is a great looking Santa! Maybe you know him. Leon "Buttons" McBryde. We say Buttons is "Larger than life". He stands right at 6'7" tall!!!

So someone named Santa joins and we want him to buy chips? Shouldn't he be keeping naughty/nice lists on us so that we can get goodies in the stockings from him???

Fellow Chipper Ben
Hey Ben, thank you the kind welcome. I do keep the beard year round and I've had nightmares that I shaved it off and it didn't grow back. I had it turning white at an early age but grew to love and embrace it and actuallycreate a living using it! You have a solid beard and "Black Beard" is an awesome moniker. You would do well in the future as Santa. Check out Kris Kringle Enterprises on facebook and if you have an interest I can hook you up with some holiday work when the time comes. I know two Santa's very well that reside in the Myrtle Beach area and both are awesome people. I am looking forward to this forum. I appreciate your help and knowledge in this fun world of poker chip enthusiasts. I can't wait to find my first quality set of chips!

Thank you for the kind welcome! I'm looking forward to meeting the members both near and far.

Interesting - Welcome to the forum
Thank you for the kind welcome!

Thank you for the kind welcome! I look forward to checking my Christmas lists/PM's and filling your stocking if you can make the cut, lol.

Thank you for the kind welcome! That's awesome that you're a clown entertainer. There's no words to describe the many blessings we receive through bringing happiness and joy to families via our professions. I just reached out to Leon "Buttons" McBryde through Facebook and I hope to connect with him. He certainly is a authentic Santa appearance. I look forward to gaining connections with the forum and I greatly appreciate you reaching out to me.

Welcome to the forum!

While I'm at it....

Dear Santa,

I've been really good his year. I'd like a 1 table set of Paulson Vineyards or Lakeshores. I'm not picky, your choice!

Thanks Kbyeeee
Thank you for your kind welcome! You have excellent taste in poker chips. I will check the Christmas list to see your ranking but your lofty request will require near perfection, lol.

Welcome to the forum, @SantaClaus.

Get -- uh... I mean have the elves make samples.
Thank you for your kind welcome! I wish things were easier at the Nprthpole but the elves are difficult at times. I attempted to have the elves make poker chips but they keep eating them thinking they're little cookies!

Hello and welcome
Thank you for your kind welcome!

Welcome to the forum! You might want to consider adding yourself to the Member Locations thread.
Thank you for your kind welcome! I will check the members location thread and appreciate that recommendation!

So someone named Santa joins and we want him to buy chips? Shouldn't he be keeping naughty/nice lists on us so that we can get goodies in the stockings from him???

Welcome to the forum!!!
Thank you for your kind welcome! I can't wait to buy the right set of chips and have my first tournament using them. Unfortunately, whenever that day comes I'll be playing against the elves and they only buy in using candy canes.

Hello and welcome!

Chips in the stocking later this year as long as I've been good during the entire pandemic?
Thank you for the kind welcome! I'll try to fill your stocking with the chips of your dreams.

Welcome to PCF

As a current SoFLer but former Jersey guy who learned at the Taj poker room pre poker boom, I warmly welcome you. It was actually my memory of the way those Taj chips felt in my hand that helps me justify this ridiculous hobby.
