I received this beautiful package from Tommy this past Monday! I had to look at the box spinning around the room for two days (labyrinthitis) until I couldn't wait any longer... The few minutes I spent opening the box were the most I was able to stand without getting sick and having to lay down... But totally worthy it!!! Thanks Tommy!!

My intention was to take pictures of the unpacking, the chips themselves, stacks, splash pots, etc, etc... I could only get to the unpacking part unfortunately... More pics to come once I feel a bit better...

I wanted to post the unpacking pictures anyway though since Tommy's packaging was the BEST packaging of a few boxes of chips in a LFRB I have ever received, and I have received plenty! Once again, thank Tommy for all your care!!! Outstanding!!!

Btw, I ran my league game last night anyways expecting I wouldn't be able to play... Well, I did play as I wouldn't miss the first time those GCRs would be used in my game... Binked it!!! Good juju to boot Tommy? :)

Very nice set, Chaos... welcome to the club! FWIW, I too binked the first tourney I played using my set.


That packing job looks like something that a recent recipient of an untaped/unprotected/opened SFRB would put together. ;) Also very nice.

Thanks Dave! As you know, I've been after one of those for a while! ;) And you're not kidding man, what an stelar packing job! Nothing like loosing some TRKs due to someone's sloppy packaging... I can't imagine walking the streets and finding a couple of barrels of those minty goodness!!

B E A utiful.....Thanks for the pr0n, this set is very nice.

Now you need racks that the chips fit in properly. That one photo where they are all leaning is making me dizzy. LOL

Hahahaha... I bet you know those racks Tommy!!! Remember? I have 100 of those!

Those were just at hand when I was unpacking... The PCRs will be in original rubbery Chipcos btw...

Now, believe it or not, I'm using 35 of those racks you see for my CPSs and they fit alright for now, not super snug of course but pretty okay...

Yes! Nice to see these finally Paulo! I won the first tournament I played with my GCRs too. There must be some good juju surrounding solid hot-stamps.

Congratulations on that fine set! And for God's sake, someone get this man the ten T1000s he needs to fill out that rack!

Yep! Got those as Paulson branded racks which of course, they were NOT! Got a good refund plus the racks... They have been in boxes for months! Opened the boxes when I received the CPSs...

I agree, solids can be as great as spotted ones... Have you seen those live Mike? If not, I'm thinking of hosting a cash game Friday the 13th... Hopefully you can make it dude!

Beautiful chips! I am becoming more and more of a solid fan!

Finally got a group together to play my first tourney with GCRs too, and got 1st place as well. Only a 6-man as I had a lot of cancellations, but we played deepstack so everyone could have at least a couple hours of fun. I guess they really are lucky :)

I'd like to propose creating a Paulson GCR Owners Club, where we routinely sell our sets to each other to extend that 'I won the first tournament with my new GCR's' streak to infinity. Win/win for everybody, all for the small price of endless shipping back and forth.

I have a tournament coming up in two weeks, so please hurry. If this works out, my new CPS chips may NEVER see any play.....

Long enough man!!! Thanks James!! Hahahaha, it seem the price/transfer DOES include a win first time the set is in play! Now, please, please don't tell me what happened after the first game, hahahaha...

Congrats!!! Good thing about a 6-max tourney is that there's action from the first hand! And YES, confirmed 'lucky chips'! :)
