    Hello everyone,

    Age: 26. When it comes to poker mine is a love hate relationship. I've casually been playing cards since I was 17 playing and after turning 24 I've been hosting weekly home games. I used to frequent Detroit casinos as well as the OLG in Sarnia, but alas I lost my bankroll in in 2013 and haven't been back since.

    Lately on the home front I happened to be on a Matt Damon binge and watched Rounders for . . . wait for it . . . the first time. Similar to pool hall junkies the film set me off in search of a new chip set and after really getting into the science of chips I am seeking to build a collection of samples and sets because everyone needs to nerd out on something! :)

    It looks like I'm in good company. Over the last few weeks I've been ordering sample sets like crazy and my infatuation has spilled over into my home games. I know a solid group of five people all chip crazy, and rest assured questions are sure to follow. Really awesome site.

    Welcome! I live presumably close by in South Lyon. Great home game scene around here, really! I never bother with charity or casino games any more. Oh, and I love chips!

    Welcome fellow Michigander!
    I'm an hour's drive north of Port Huron....make it to Sarnia occasionally to play, not very often to Detroit casinos.
    Hope you find the chip set(s) you want.

    I routinely play at Mike32's game. He is a great host. I also run a cash game in Ypsilanti. If your relatively close let me know. We play mixed flop games. .25/.50 with a 60-100 buy in.

    Welcome! I can definitely relate to the "we all need to nerd out on something" aspect of your post. You're in good company!
