Hey all, new member from the UK. Only started playing poker around the start of the year but I've caught the chip bug early and these cheap UK composite chips don't cut it for me anymore!

Amazing! Welcome!

Good luck mate, I'm down in London and 4 months ahead of you. I have already bought (and sold) 800 Dunes CC's, got 700 Muertos on the way + 20 plaques and a custom cloth from @T_Chan sitting in the dining room to fit to my table once I can get the bits ordered from B&Q.

This place is dangerous...

Haha any recommendations I'm not sure how the tax works with bringing in stuff from the US!

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole!

And so it begins...

Arsenal fan here, but United are heaps better than those annoying bellends city.

Haha my brother in law is a hardcore Arsenal fan, we're both in the same boat nowadays.

And totally agree, City fans are the worst!

If you can get them shipped to a mate in the US who then posts them to you as a gift and values it less than £120 you might get away with it. Not sure what I'll do with my Muertos yet. I paid tax and customs on my Dunes, including the shipping! The gits! Came to around £100 on top of the £400 spend.

Here they are for good measure, can't wait for a GBP chip instead of USD.

How did you find the dunes? I was eyeing them up for a tourney set but was thinking of getting samples first!

The Muertos look unreal!

The Dunes were a nice but I couldn't cope with CC's having slightly different thicknesses between denominations, so they didn't stack perfectly. Definitely get samples, I didn't first time around...depends what you want from chips too, as much as I'd love thousands of different types, we only play cash games, so I knew I'd only be ordering one set. Had to be perfect when you think you're spending £500 odd.

PM me your address and I'll send you the Muertos samples I ordered a few weeks back if you want them. You'll love them but they are more pricey than CC's.

Welcome! Always good to see another UK chipper join — seems to be loads more joining recently, which is great. DM me if ever you wanted chip advice — or just to rip into the fact that I'm a Villa fan, for my sins!

Haha, I'm a Middlesbrough fan, hoping they just write this season off like you are I imagine!
