Post your bracket - wager a favorite $1 chip - win or lose - brackets must be posted before the first playoff game



I will wager a Wynn $1 Chinese New Year chip

Going to Vegas at the end of May so I'll have a good idea if I need to get a chip.

I have the advantage of not backing the home team, they were done months ago. The tough decision was the Mtl Ott series could go either way.

So still to early to tell anything, but I might have the early lead with the Ducks and Habs. But I got to thinking that being that we are all from different area's why not just get a local poker chip to send. I could get a Turning Stone, Seneca Niagara or one of the Canadian Niagara chips to send along. Not sure if either of you have ones from there. I know I don't have any Florida chips. Not sure where in NJ you're located but I know I haven't stopped into any of the Pennsylvania casino's and was last in AC over 10 years ago.

Still 5 teams alive at the end of round 1, but only 56 points.

My east bracket worked out pretty well, but my west bracket was hurt by overlooking Anaheim. Still have 3 out of the final 4. :cool:

Yup. I was very pissed at that game last night. Let me know what chip you want. I can get something from the area, or I'm heading to Vegas at the end of the month, but you were just there. Area options are Turning Stone, Seneca Niagara, Falls View, Casino Niagara, Seneca Buffalo Creek (which I have yet to attend so maybe a needed excuse). Also PM me address so I can "Ship It". Not sure who I'm pulling for now but I wouldn't be disappointed to see Cally bring the cup back to Rochester.

Mark are there any AC casinos you don't have $1s from? I'd be glad to pick one of those up.

If there are any new chips released at Vegas casinos, I would like one of those. If not, just pick me up one where you are staying or playing. Aria or Bellagio chips are always fine too.

I'm not sure. Are there any new issues or recently opened casinos there ? Did Revel reopen yet - I don't think I ever got one from there. Just find a nice looking chip.

depends on how liberal your definition of "recent" is. Golden Nugget is new as of a couple years ago (rebranded from the old Trump Marina). Revel about the same time. Atlantic Club (which used Chipco) also opened around then, but shut down a while back now.

Golden Nugget AC would be fine.

NP! Unfortunately there were no mint to be had :(. That was the best condition I could find among the couple of racks of $1s I went through while playing $2/4/6 LHE for a couple hours. Prob the last time I'll step foot in the Nugget.

Yeah got lucky and ran hot for a few hours much to the dismay of the rest of the table who didn't quite believe that 4-betting pocket 3a is proper limit hold em strategy :)

My biggest mistakes were going for the long shots Calgary and Winnipeg in the Western Conference. I really don't watch much of the Western Conference until the playoffs. At least I got the two finalists correct. :)

I'm surprised with the two finalists you rank that low. I got back from Vegas Saturday and started cleaning chips yesterday. I'll oil and post the selection for you. Well the cup will be in Western NY be it Kane or Callahan who brings it here.
