Looking to start a single table cash game at my local legion. Looking for a mid range chip set to get myself started - something in the 500- 1000 chip range, mostly 1's and 5's with a small # of 25's.

How big does your game play? What is the max cash you anticipate being on the table? If we know that, we can size a set with a decent breakdown and then start figuring out what's out there in your price range.

It's a small community, so I'm guessing $50-200 buyins 9 handed. $2000 max on the table.

I like more chips on the table and fracs and my game is .25/.50 but plays bigger.
That being said, the following breakdown is not optimal, but I like it.
160 $0.25
300 $1
300 $5
40 $25
800 chips with a bank of $2835

That should cover you game and give you room to grow.

You could go with this to save on chips
100 $0.25
260 $1
300 $5
40. $25
700 chips w/ bank of $2285

If you more efficient
100. $0.25
200 $1
200 $5
80 $25
20 $100
600 chips w/ bank of $5225

Just depends on what you want. Lots of options. Used Paulson for ~$1-$1.50/chip. China clay ( majestics, milanos, royals ) for ~$0.50-$0.80/chip. And there are a bunch of stock and semi custom ceramics in your price range as well.

Depends, if you are playing .25/50 and people decide they want a bigger game or have multiple buyins/people are tripled up you run out of chips fast. Too many small chips and it becomes a shitshow of massive stacks, not enough and you're swapping change constantly.

That's why you get a good solid breakdown. As long as your not going from 25/50 to 1/2/5, a careful breakdown should handle it all

Oops, I meant to put 500-1000 chip range. I dont necessarily need 1k chips but if thats whats available in the set that cant be split or its a good deal I'm open to it.

Not sure if it's because they're Cherokees but I was finding similarly sized diecar sets for the 300 range on the forums?

I'm only familiar with china clays and Paulsons, not sure what the story with these chips are.

These are ASM/CPC chips. Much closer to Paulsons than China clays because they are compression molded clay. In the $300-500 budget range you can afford China clays or @BR Pro Poker ceramics, but if you have time and can wait for a used CPC/ASM set to show up that you like I would go that route.

Asking me if I'm here to promote a website. I just told you I use a different payment processor and have my money on there, do you have it/are willing to use it. Why would I want to buy from someone who accuses me of being a spammer when I ask if he accept a certain payment method?

If you used online wallets you'd know how long it takes to transfer to bank account and onto another wallet. On top of that paypal is known for shady scammers and not dokmg the right thing, so I don't use it. I use muchbettrr or email money transfer through my bank.

You did not ask if I use it for payment processing. All you said was you use it to play poker. I’m not trying to play poker with you. I offered a set and I already replied that I use PayPal and I wanted friends and family.

But yes, get passive agressive with me then post it publicly and call for mods when I get irritated. I thought this was a forum full of men who play poker, not gossiping ninnies.

that indicates nothing about buying the set. What do I care what apps you use to play poker? That’s not even remotely like “ hey I want the set. Can I pay with muchbetter instead of PayPal?

Are you brain damaged? "I WANT THE SET BUT I JUST PUT ALL MY MONEY ON MUCHBETTER TO PKAY POKER. DO YOU HAVE THIS APP?" Jesus Christ it's not hard to see where I was going with that. Are you autistic?
