help finding chip denomination stickers

Postby iloveholdem » Sun Jan 04, 2004 11:58 pm GMT

Hi everyone, I need some help. I have a few hundred 11.5 gram clay poker chips I use for home. I would like denominations printed on these chips but too expensive for me to have that hotstamped. I was wondering, dunno if this exisit but is their perhaps stickers I could just stick on the chip that has denomations instead of hot stamping? I know it would look a bit cheesey but it would really help.

Thanks again!

Are they all the same color. If there not just assign a value to each color. If there all the same color i dont know if stickers wouold realy be worth it. Still confusing.

So just asses a value to each chip color. White $1, Red $5 so on and so on. it shoudnt be to hard to rember i have chips in white, red, green, black when i play i just make a value up for each color. Easy.

Personally, I like chips blank for home games. We have different
games with different stakes, and it's good to be able to choose
accordingly. If people have difficulty remembering, get 1 of each
set denomination and put money on or under it. like .25 on red
.50 on white 1.00 on black 2.00 on blue, whatever.

Seriously people....

If you can't remember what the hell a red, white, or blue chip is worth....

DO YOU HAVE ANY BUSINESS PLAYING POKER FOR MONEY???!?!?!?!?

I mean, how the heck will you remember that a staight beats a flush? Or an Ace is better than a King??? I'm not trying to be a sacrastic pain in the ass, but poker is played by intelligent people who should not need a crutch like a sticker on their chips to remember that it takes five white ones to make a red one.

Then again...there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that anyone so mentally deficient could possibly outplay a player of even modest skills...so it would make a lot of sense to dumb down the game for him in order to facilitate seperating the gentleman from his money.

Well, I already do that set . I have the denomations according to how many chips of each i have, the most ( white ) are worth .25 cent because everyone loves quarter betting ( in my family ) and so on. Its just I was wanting a more casino feeling with my chips. More pro I suppose to say.

a royal house. that beats all except straight to the 2. and a
4 high flush. but 3 pair is pretty damn good, id go all in, unless
a guy had all reds or something. :shock:

yeah, i can understand wanting the chips marked, it's just
that once they're marked, they're marked. you could
change them, but, aww screw it. you mark em up good.
if you're anywhere near Texas, I can suggest a good place.

Wait a sec! Hold up!

A flush BEATS a straight now????

It's been a few weeks since I played, but when did they change that? Man, doesn't that beat all!

(No, wait, it's the royal that beats all, ain't it?)

I love the irony of your first post in light of your last one.


anyhow, flush has beaten a straight since before you were born. Yes a straight flush is the highest hand.

My goodness people, here are ranks in descending order
(i put happyfaces to represent good to bad)

:D
- royal flush
- straight flush
- 4 o.a.k.
- fullhouse
- flush
- straight
- 3 o.a.k.
- 2 pair
- 1 pair
- high card.
:(

I appreciate the irony too. was'nt this post about chips or
something? I think some people forget that a flush beats
a straight, so in home games they just choose,, then thats
what they think in the real world, and it's just not true. :!: :!:
