This was always one of my favorite threads to look at, so let's see 'em folks! Show us your starting stacks!

I'll use this as a placeholder for my starting stacks pictures when I get some decent shots.

When are you hosting!!!! I want to fondle these chips!!!! That'll be worth the drive all by itself!!!!


Here's my Stardust Mansion starting stacks for 20 players 25K:

Awesome pictures, Josh. Those Three-Putt Poker T5s are one of my favorite chips ever. Also, is that a Three-Putt Poker phone case?? You sir, are an inspiration.

Links, I'm guessing you use those T5s in the Three Putt and Matsui stacks as bounty chips. If so, is the bounty usually $5 or another amount?

I love seeing big starting stacks. Right now our games are just one table and the players love having almost a full-rack each.

Yep, for T5k and up I use the T5s as bounties. When rolling with a smaller starting stack that uses T5s (T1k - T2.5k) I use a different chip or a bounty button.

In that case, here's my as-yet-theoretical T3000 SuperStack™ featuring 100 chips, (including a show 'em and bounty). I have enough for 8 players and 6 rebuys (in T500s after coloring up the T5s and T25s). I'm saving that for a buy-in higher than $20.

Excellent! Your actual chips look WAY better than the photo, however. :D Here's a small improvement, quickly done, though the quarters still look bluish-grey instead of white - I'm not near a real computer with Adobe Photoshop at the moment! Try to avoid bright reflections (like the one in the upper left) in the next photo, and you'll probably see prettier chips! :D

"Racks to Infinity" is great Ski!! Hahahaha... Those were quick pictures I took with my phone as I was preparing the stacks so I wasn't sure about their quality... I had no questions about the chips quality, only about the photographer's :)

And I'll take a note that you're taking a note! :cool: (r we leveling already?) We'll have the chance to play live together at The Post in a couple of months man...

* Btw, I tried to write you a couple of times but your inbox is full...

Yeah, the "racks into infinity" was my favorite photo of the bunch, too. Yet, Paulo undersells it with "sorry for the crappy pics". Note to self... beware of possible "sorry for my crappy quad Aces" tiger traps.

Thanks for the touch up and compliment :). I misspoke when I said starting stack for tomorrow (Friday), my game is on Saturday. I'll be taking a bunch of pictures hopefully!

BTW done beautiful chips in the thread! Can't wait to see some of those chips at MTTD hopefully.

$50 starting stacks for tonight's mixed cash game . Lower stakes than usual, but we're trying the mixed game.

Would help if I included the photo...

We never did get to SOHE. Game ended earlier than expected.
