    allo!

    I have been a long-time lurker and had an account a while back I can't for the life of me remember. I only posted twice on it trying to get into a group buy.

    I have no 'real' chips but a loaner set from a friend. I built a pretty nice table some time back and am only now getting around to getting my own chips for my monthly tournaments and hopefully future cash game.

    These forums have made me very picky with expensive tastes, which doesn't go well with my frugal personality.

    Saying hi, hopefully I can grab a set on here on the classified, or at absolute last resort make some from custom poker chips, even with our abysmal Canadian dollar.

    Also, thanks to all the people posting the pictures of their chips, they give me so many ideas!

    Welcome back!

    Edit:
    Checked today, and the exchange rate is brutal, as our beloved loonie dipped below 70c US. At this time, $1 USD = $1.43 CDN. Ouch.

    Yeah, I found my PGI quote from like two years ago I never acted on and I am kicking myself as I went online and the prices went up plus our dollar is bad which really compounds the issue, making a lot of chips just unattractive (to buy).
