Yup. If they're good friends, they'll smile and nod patiently while you tell them about the chips. But in reality, they won't care, and they won't notice that stacks weren't spilling over every ten minutes all night. I've even had guys ask how much the chips were worth. Denominated paulsons..
I think I told you about how I became a chippie and honestly the reaction I got to it.
I attended my sister-in-law's poker game and she used Desert Palace Chips. Yes, these things:
During the second poker night, she had some friends over, a couple in their 20s and I had gotten some samples of different chips. When the girlfriend saw my samples of the Wicked Spades, she fell in love with them, even saying that she could feel the difference in quality and next time to bring those chips in, she made me promise to buy a set and bring it to the poker night.
I did buy the set, that was my first official "Steve" set, and I love those chips even now. The Desert Palace chips, not so much, so yeah, it's not an issue to mix THC and RHC chips.
