    I didn't realize BCC was so rare. I traded a poker table with a local chiptalk member for a micro cash set of BCC chips. $0.05 to $5 denominations. I use them quite a bit, except since we play .25/.25 to .50/$1 we never get the nickels into play.

    You might get a good price for the nickels on chiptalk. I assume these are the fan of cards chips.

    They're actually hot stamped. The rest of them have a custom label on them.

    I have to say I really like the Venerati. They are a textured ceramic. I like the feel, the weight, the sound, the colours and the patterns. They don't have the sharp edges the Paulsons have but they stack like nobody's business. I will probably have to order some $0.25 chips to complete the set for cash games. The count on the Venerati was 700.

    The 5000 chips from the Paulsons are different than the others (sticker and outer pattern as well as no $). 649 Paulsons (one $25 chip broke).

    My haul...

    What are the breakdowns? It definitely looks like you did well there. A good price on the Paulsons and basically everything else was free.

    149 $25
    250 $100
    100 $500
    100 $1000
    50 $5000

    Venerati:

    250 $1
    150 $5
    150 $25
    100 $100

    Everything on the table cost me $600 cash.

    11 more $25 and you can run two tables, and 4 $25, 4 $100, 3 $500, 3 $1000 for spares.

    Tourney dist: 8/8/2/3/1, $10k starting, 2 tables

    You need 150 $5 and 100 $.25 for a decent cash set. (.25/.50 blinds, $60 max), for now you can make it playable by using the $25s as quarters.

    Would anyone go crazy if the starting stack was $9,975? My wallet has been quarantined for the foreseeable future.

    You have enough for one table, not enough for two. You need 160 min for two tables. 8 each person. Or enough for 16 players.

    Lol, I got the math part okay Moose . Just saying would it break anything if I did 7 $25 chips each instead cutting the starting stack from $10k to $9,975? 20 people would be 140 chips then.

    I will probably be looking at <= 10 person games anyway but just in case.

    It'd work. It just wouldn't be Moose Casino and Chip Emporium approved. :D

    As of Oct 29, 2014, Paulson has discontinued all home sets!

    If you want to expand your set get on it before stock runs out!
