Hello from KC. I'm like most here, looking to talk poker chips. I had some custom chips made back in 2004, when I had my baseball card shop. I was playing a lot online & ran weekly tournaments in my shop. A few pics of the chips I had made are listed below. I think I bought 1000 chips of all denominations from $0.25 to $10,000. Kansas City Poker Club w a KC Chiefs logo was the design I used. Also had some made for my shop, Dugout Sports Cards. I'll have to dig some of those out to share a pic. Both are on the cheaper type of chips that were common back then.

Went to Vegas around the same time & visited the Gambler's General Store. Bought some Paulson's: Black Viva Las Vegas $100 (20), White $1 Starburst (80), Red $5 Starburst (140) & Green Starburst (80). I'm thinking about selling this set of Paulson's to upgrade a new set. Would love some advise on value. Pic below of them.

I host a bi-monthly poker tourney. Our first session had 10-20 players. Buy-In was between $50-$80. 10 tourneys, with 60% going towards prize money to enter the WSOP Milly Maker & 40% going towards 1st-3rd place. We were able to send 3 runners to Vegas for the $1,500 buy-in tourney. One of our boys cashed for $4038, which he kept 50% & the rest was split among the rest of us.

Anyway, thanks for allowing me to be part of your group. Look forward to reviewing everyone's chips & recommendations on company & type of chips best fit my needs.

So this year I want to up my game, with a new chip purchase!

Hello and welcome!

Those "Starbursts" are cancelled chips from the Crown Casino, New Orleans. They aren't worth a hell of a lot, but they are worth something. I have some of the 5's myself. PM me and maybe we can work out a deal?

@PokerLoon ... holy crap!
Small world.
I grew up in Lee’s Summit and used to shop at the Dugout when I was a kid at the location over by blue ridge mall. Then it moved to Noland correct?
Good to see you on here and welcome!

I’m headed that way in August!
Shoot me a PM if you have questions!

Small world indeed. You may have shopped at the Dugout back when the original owner had it on Blue Ridge. We bought it from them in 2001 and kept it open for 6 years. Internet killed the business unfortunately & had to close. Still deal in cards a little. To bad we couldn't make it through the early years when the market went online, it would have been nice to have the shop when the Royals were in the series '14 & '15.
