Briefly (like very briefly) a couple of the yellow 1m made it out for the 10k PLOThey have been using the Hawaii Flower 100ks when necessary with the primaries all series this year but we haven't seen anything higher. I am waiting to see if they bust out the 250k or which 500ks, hopefully tonight. It has been a boring year in terms of chip usage.
I don't have Pokergo so I am not actively watching though.
I know Jim had a deal in place for them to change the WSOP chips every few years and he would get to resale the old ones….until the NGC nixed it last minute. If anyone has a chance at getting them, it’s Jim.
It just tilts me because they have rfid versions of the 25k and 100k but those aren’t in play. And the 5m from 2019 was 8v
I’m sure the set designer is also annoyed by the mixings
Interesting no red 500 K frisbees at all this time around
I think you are going to see more of this going forward. 500k chips aren't super useful as it's only half the more plentiful 1m chip. Just like how even with a 60k starting stack they only give everyone 2 T500 to start because they aren't really useful. But there they serve more purpose because of wanting to minimize the number of chips in the starting stack.Haven't done a full sweep but it looks like they didn't use a single 500K chip with any of the sets in any tournament this year.
They went with the 100k to 1M/5M (when necessary combo).
Edit: I only found 2 tournaments so far that used a 500K chip this year. Event #8 with the Bud Jones secondaries and Event #10 with the Bud Jones Primaries.
