    I'm pretty sure you're not playing in games this big.

    In the book she ends up having a player bring chips into a game. It took a while to catch him.

    I remember that.Which made me wonder why don't they have custom chips. They think about almost every aspect of the game, from the venue to the hostesses and catered food, etc, but when it comes to chips that the players play with for hours and represent millions of dollars on the table, they completely neglect it.

    These sets aren't used in her game, but two of the sets used in 5/10, 10/25 and 25/50 games in a similar venue in NY... will post more pictures in a couple of weeks when I go back to the venue Eddie T used to host his 100/200+ games (he is prominently mentioned in her book)

    Ha these are the A-K plastic injection chips, my first set of poker chips. They are actually pretty great. I could stack 100+ easy. But they were pretty slippery looking back.

    Looks like a good movie. I'm guessing many PCF members have seen Mississippi Grind - but check it out if you haven't. Pretty underrated in my opinion.

    I haven't read the book but I would cast dice chips in certain settings. I just watched the trailer and, "I don't think so Tim."

    Just a wild guess - is the second screenshot from The Sting?

    They're both from the same film, because the unicorn is on the chips ion both pics. Sting never had plaques in play, iirc.
