My original plan was to play the Colossus and Mini Main this summer, but the flights got borked up and cancelled the package I bought. With the virus hype driving prices down I'm considering still going to the WSOP, but perhaps playing a different event or set of events.

I really DISLIKE these chips:

They are just ugly as sin to me and don't look like they'd be a ton of fun to play with. However a set like this looks great to me:

I had originally considered the Big 50, Monster Stack Freezeout, Colossus and Mini Main. I like the structures and buyins and think I'd do well in those fields. But I also think all four of those events use the shitty chips I'm not a fan of?

Anyone got some info on what event(s) in the $1,500 or less buyin range would have nice looking Paulsons to play with?

You are a few years too late on this. It's a little difficult to predict which tournaments are going to use the Paulsons because last year was all over the place. They started using the Bud Jones and Bud Jones V2s a lot more last year compared to previous years.

Your best bet is to go for a 1.5K non-NLHE event for the new V2 secondaries (the ones in the picture you included are the original secondaries and have been discontinued). Last year they only used the bud Jones on NLHE and PLO events so limit games are much safer guesses to use Paulsons in 2020.

Here is a list of the Paulsons used last year in events 1.5K buy-in and under. No guarantees they will repeat on these.

2019 Event 64888 NLHE 8-HandedPaulson Primaries
2019 Event 661.5K Limit HEPaulson V2 Secondaries

All four of the tournaments you listed used the Bud Jones Primaries.

The $888 Crazy Eights NLHE starting June 26th is probably your best bet for NLHE

I'm shocked that this was tracked, pretty cool!

I track the chip usage as part of a project I do. You can check out my signature for more info.

Coronavirus driving airfares down, but keep in mind that the whole WSOP might get canceled as well, because of the coronavirus.

Latest news from over here is that the Norwegian poker Open and Irish Poker Open (both scheduled for April) is Canceled!
