In the whole forum there are really great and beautiful poker chips. But what is with the other side of the medal - the real bad ones? You got some examples for ugly and cheao chips?

You can buy a set of 100 "Bee" chips that are just plastic. 50 white, 25 red, and 25 blue. The gang I play cards with has about 3 or 4 sets of these spread out amongst us. Generally they are used at the cottage and with the kids. They are worth what they cost, which is to say about a nickel apiece.

Most folks will say "Dice" chips, but they too serve a purpose. I owned two sets of 500 before getting into the higer end of the market.

I have these. Right now, we use them for rebuy chips. In tournaments, we allow one rebuy so everyone gets one, and if you have it at the end of the rebuy period, it gets traded in for roughly 2x the big blind.

Well, I guess there are a lot of people starting with such poker chips before they get aware of what else is available on the more "sophisticated" market.

About five years ago I went to a local game via a Meetup site that advertised "real casino chips and cards". I got there and saw the table set up with the "punched" cards from a casino (which is fine for paper cards) and those toy chips from Wal-Mart. Needless to say, the caliber of play was equally . . . interesting.
