Hi to all from El Sobrante, CA!

At the tender age of 40 I have caught the poker bug something fierce. Never played a game until this year...now I play about 5x per week at the local Indian Casino (3/6 limit for now...about a break even proposition, actually +$0.86/hour...not quite ready to turn pro! lol)

So with the affliction came a lust for chips....

I found a set of 160 LV Horseshoe Club - 40x $1, 80 x $5, 40x $25

Also picked up 400 Paulson non-denominated grey Private Cardrooms. (I'm itching for greens, blacks, and whites, denominated or not, but I'm having a bear of a time finding any.)

So that's all for now, check out the pics...the only thing more amateur than the pics is my game!

Those Horseshoe Club chips are cool. How many do you have in the set? Oh, and welcome to PCF. :)

160 Horseshoe Clubs in all. Came in a generic new Chinese carousel. I plan to find something more vintage to hold them in, bakelite perhaps. The chips are from various vintages, I did the research but forget the details. The whites are top hat and cane, they show the typical heavy casino wear and dirt you frequently see in use on busy casino $1's. The blues are virtually new, very clean, not sharp edges per se but negligible "wear". The greens are used, cleaner and less worn than the whites. Blues and greens have the horseshoe border stamps.


Also, about 90% finished with a 10 seat poker table top. Black velveteen surface, ebony stained oak veneer racetrack with 6 coats gloss poly finish. Just finishing the tan "emu" vinyl rail. Pics on that forthcoming.
