@Apache I can’t understand the absence of a $20 chip in this lineup. Not sure if this has been explained already. Maybe you (or anyone else) can educate me on why that chip isn’t produced for a chip set like this. I play cash games and for my type of game a $20 chip is very useful. I’m more confused by the inclusion of a $10 chip. I browse may photos of sets on this site and can’t recall too many $10 chips. Are they useful for tournaments? Do they have higher demand than a $20 chip? This is the only reason I haven’t pulled the trigger on these. Would love to buy these but I need that $20. Looking forward to a response..

In pic of post #37, are the chips on the left already oiled up or are they only cleaned to remove factory dust?

I must say, I'm definitely a fan of these Monaco chips. If only my budget could afford some. :bigbucks:

I wish there was a nickel and a $20 instead of $.50 and $10. The only thing stopping me from pulling the trigger on a micro cash game set.

Was thinking rather than the 50¢ and $10, a 5¢ and a $25,000. :D

What stakes do you play? In casinos a 20 dollar chip is rare and a 10 dollar chip is very rare. Generally casinos use $1, $5, $25, and $100 chips which covers the vast majority of games spread. In truth I don't think a $10 or $20 are necessary. Just buy $5 and $25 chips in the right amounts you need and away you go.

It seems like the set is finalized so not sure if Apache will be looking to add/change any of the existing set.

Many if not the majority of home cash games, especially lower stakes, use $20 chips because they are much easier to deal with than $25s in buying in and cashing out. A $20 chip is badly needed here.

I think most people who are not members of this site will have different buying patterns and I bet most of Apache's customers are not members here. I was looking at another chip set where you can buy demons individually and they offer a 50c and $10 but no 5c and $20, exactly like Apache.

Ugh...

I want a pure cash set for one table (300-400 chips) but can't decide between these Monacos or Apache's CC Dunes... the latter being less than half the cost. Denoms would be 25¢, $1, $5, and either $10 or $20 for rebuys/addons depending on the set.

I like the Dunes colors a bit better but the Monaco Paulsons just feel a lot nicer, and I like the differing shapes of the "inlays". I understand fully the potential issues with CC's.

I think I know what the consensus here will be... I'm just thinking out loud and inviting comments from the gallery. ;)

(yes, I have samples)

i have both, and honestly the Dune's is the best CC in my opinion as far as feel goes. I love how they shuffle and feel. but i really like my Monaco set too. Really depends on what you want. But can't go wrong with either one. (y) :thumbsup:

I'm building a micro stakes Pharaoh CC set (once the $0.05s are back in stock) but also bought a casino used Paulson set for less than $1 per chip for a low-mid range stake set. I really like both but I thought I would be happy with the CCs for a while and it took less than a month for me to break down and get Paulsons lol.

Both have their place but there's a very very good chance you'll eventually get a clay set so it depends if it's worth it to you to skip the CCs or have both.

After playing with them for a year, you will have forgotten all about the cost, and will have enjoyed playing with the Monaco chips more. After a year with the Dunes, you'll wish you'd gotten real clays. My 2c.
