Hello Everyone – been a long time lurker here (more and more recently) but finally decided to jump in and start posting. I’ve got some questions that I look forward to getting help from this forum, but I hope I can offer some helpful advice myself.

Quick background…

PAULSON $1 CHIPS

I’m a big fan of Paulson poker chips. So much so that I’ve made a hobby of collecting $1 White Paulson chips from casinos/card rooms/cruises/etc from around the United States. Truth be told, not just collect - as I can’t imagine collecting poker chips only to have them sit in a folder or case. I actually “collect” them to use in my home cash games. Everyone loves it. Here they are:

I’ve done a ton of research in building a database of all the US $1 White Paulson chips. My list includes all design variations, but I’ve excluded UV and ShortCane/LongCane variations, as well as hot-stamped only chips – nothing wrong with them, just had to draw a line somewhere. I’m never sure if my database is complete – but I’m always on the lookout and updating this list as new chips are being released.

PAULSON FANTASY CHIPS
I remember starting this whole Paulson obsession thing when I first purchased my Paulson Gambler’s Pleasure fantasy poker chips from Casinocom.com some 15+ years ago. And like so many others here, I’m guessing, I regret not buying more of these as well as other Paulson chips.

I’ve had little luck in tracking down more Gambler’s Pleasure chips to build a bigger Tournament set so I’ve decided to acquire other Paulson Fantasy chips that match (or very closely match) my Gambler’s Pleasure chips in chip color and edgespots to make a mixed Tournament set. I’ve already chipped away at this WantList with thanks to some members here recently - ReallyGoodUsername, heisman, dickzapper, Jorgy, kaimat, and Alejandro Saca. Once I get enough posts, I’ll jump on the Poker Chip Forum Classified section to complete this collection.

MISCELLANEOUS:
I’ve got other items I’d like to go over, but I’ll spare you here and post them individually. This includes Custom Cut Cards, poker plaques, Tournament Blind Structures, Cash Game structures, Chip tubes, etc.

Thanks for the forum!

Gavin

Welcome. I also collect white Paulson $1s, with the intention of using them in a set. Do you have duplicates you’re looking to get rid of? Looking for THC and housemolds at the moment.

Welcome fellow chipper!! Impressive $1 collection. Curious you say you use them? Is this for a limit game or do you also have random $5?? I feel like at some point we have all though of doing the mixed rack limit set idea! Also amazing splash pot photo!! If they ever do another run on custom cut cards that image would be sweet for the cards... @JeepologyOffroad recently helped me clean up mine and make them into a usable format!!

Thank you... And as a matter of fact, Washington is the state I am missing the most chips in completing my set. I'll forward my list. Thanks for trying to assist!

Thank you... and yes, I do. Send me your email and I can send you a list of what I have.... Thanx!

Thank you Ben - that is quite a collection yourself. Yes, I use over 800 white $1 Paulson casino chips for my home cash game. I also include a rack of $5's (about 70 $5 casino chips offsetting with about 30 $5 Paulson Fantasy chips) plus some custom $25 plaques made by MSK. It works well.

As for the custom cut cards - I will definitely keep an eye out in the Group Buy section..

Thanx!

Will do - hope to complete my Tournament set soon with some help from this Forum.... Thanx!
