If you think there might be any interest in a micro stakes cash NLHE or PLO at any time - maybe late in the evening when a few of us are broke or drunk - I have a couple different sets I can bring for nickel / dime, 0.10 / 0.20 or 0.25 / 0.25 blinds.
Sure! I do have a rack of sadly heat-warped nickel chips for the Windy City set as well.

@Breich,
I was checking out Hilton properties near the airport, are these hotel choices going to be the closest to you?
I’m a Hilton Honors member so I always look into those properties first.
Any Austin-'Airport' hotel is going to be close--so no issue there. Can PM you more details if you'd like something more specific than that

That sounds like more work than I did in the Army.

I forgot I did the sample set sale. If I had more headway, I'd do a special run of Windy City $5s like how @Payback did years ago, but CPC seems like they're over 6 months out on orders. If this is a hit I'll get something made up for 2024.

And I still have side projects for my $2 chip, and I'd love to do oversized $20s and $100s. But I haven't felt like lighting more money on fire yet. At least not on poker chips. These poor chips, the only action they've seen the last 4 years is as a bank for board games.

I don't actually have a full sample set, just a $5 and a couple of $1s that you gave me. If there was a sale, I missed it.

Could I also get a PM with address info. Planning to stay at my son's just north of Buda and hoping it's not too far.

So, with the main list 'full', 3 tables is a guarantee at this point. For now, I'm going to keep that list capped at 20, because realistically there's a couple other locals that will swing by. However, I haven't played poker with them regularly for a few years now, so I'm not sure how many will show up. Ultimately, once we're ~2 months out, I'll gauge their interest and try to get commitments, and from there I'll adjust the main list as necessary.

Are poker hoodies still a thing, or is there something better out there these days? I have one somewhere but can't find it. I have my main, 8-handed Windy City table that I built back in 2014, but the other two tables will be a folding circle table (seats 8 comfortably) and the 3rd table will be my large board gaming table in the game room (rectangular, seats a small family of 12). I'll need something to cover the surfaces of the other two tables.

I have a rectangular PCF mat that I'm happy to bring.

Also have a cheap folding table, but it's a little warped and pretty crappy. I drive a truck so no worries throwing it in if you think you might want to use it.

Edit: It's the same size and style as a basic Barrington.

Yes those are @Schmendr1ck's 3 racks of primary $1s. I laid claim on them all the way back in 2014 at the HPI he ran at his house. Sure enough, 6 years later he came through and gave me first shot at buying them.

The majority of the $5s have been jewelry-cleaned and oiled by me. There's maybe 2 racks that still need doing, but overall they cleaned up REALLY well years ago. (I think I did it back in 2018.)

Also, pictures of my best find on eBay: SLOT QUARTERS in a mint roll. Such a perfect addition to the set. I'll be breaking them out as quarters for the smaller table!

MY BABIES!

I miss that set. If the $5s had been in even slightly better condition, I probably would never have sold it.

You can use some of my fracs if you need some. Leave those things sealed.
Agreed! Don't bust that! Do you not have any other quarters? I have tons of cards mold and china clay quarters, but no Paulsons...

Surprisingly cards mold are pretty similar in dimensions to Paulsons. They play well together.

I have about 200 of these Aria's tribute quarters. Happy to bring them.

Don’t break open that roll. I have plenty of fracs we can use. Hot stamps, THC, RHC, BCC, suits molds, starbursts, etc. We can find one that fits.

Oh for sure, I've got my windy city quarters as well as some Joliet roulette chips that @Schmendr1ck had used as quarters.

Lol, I thought I had 300 25s but didn't realize I had 420 1s.
