Joined up the other day, so I guess I better start one of these. More of a card junkie than a chip-a-holic, but it's really just a question of $$$. New cards are cheaper than new sets of chips . . . not that I do not have too many of either, but you get the point.

Welcome, I recognize your name from HP and CT.

I started out as a card junkie and found CT by looking for plastic playing card reviews. Now the chip bug has gotten me too.

So do pretty much all card junkies play a lot of poker so they can put all those decks in play or is it more of a collector thing? Meaning, you buy decks but rarely use them? Just wondering.

I like to bring out the fancy stuff to make my players ooohh and aaahh. Generally do that at tournament time, when more players are around. For the regular game I generally just use the same deck of Piatniks, as they are a very durable card, and I have an orphan deck. The Da Vincis with their bright pastels were a big hit, but a little difficult to differentiate quickly. I have use my Platinum Acetates a couple times with more experienced players who might appreciate them more. A couple decks will never see play, like my Torcello Blancos from Dal Negro. I just bought them because of the oddity of an all white card back.

Welcome, Milo.

I was a diehard chip guy, and more recently got into cards.

Glad to see you are here!
