    Not sure you can see it, but the register is on the right, in front of the tv...

    Does it make a 'cha-ching!' sound when you add to it?

    I was starting to think I was going overboard with the cash box idea until Thurston Howell chimed in with his cash register and formal poker room that includes 2 tv's, blind timer monitor, a lighted rail poker table, and probably genuine baby seal leather high back chairs. And do I count 6 1000 chip birdcages?

    Greg,
    Do the bill trays in that box curve up so that the money slides out easily, or are they square bottomed? It's hard to tell from the pictures I've seen of that one.

    Cigar box, yep that's what I normally use. Has a sliding lid that's not easy to open so if you are going to steal it will be obvious. That or cargo shorts.

    One thing I started doing for buy-ins is I don't collect any $ until everyone has been seated with the buy-in on the table in front of them. I don't have to remember or write down who's bought in, just collect from 1 person and move on to the next.

    First of all, I always put the bills upside down because they tend to want to fold upwards. But no the spring-loaded holders are so stiff, I always flip them up before pulling bills.

    This is what I do too. We play a cash game, so the extra chips and cash are basically the same thing. It makes sense to keep them together.

    I literally LOL'd.

    Hobby Lobby usually has a selection of treasure-chest-looking boxes and other small boxes that may be of interest.

    Greg, I just noticed that I seem to have another userID, QuiQuog01. It's in one of my posts above. What's that all about?

    You should always keep money securely hidden out of sight for in the rectal cavity for legal and safety reasons. If you are brave, the pocket has always worked fine and you can usually get a decent roll in a pocket unless everyone buys in with ones. A lot of it depends on the stakes and people playing in the game. Friendly home game would need less security than one that has strangers or the friend or a friend crowd. I like pockets because it's the where ever I go, it goes theory and I don't have to pick the box up and take it with me and if somebody picks me up and walks off I'm gonna know. Jondavid66 that is a nice looking room!

    Poker shirt requirements include large front shirt pocket? :)

    I put the cash in this random box I found in the garage that had candles in it. Flip top lid. Home game includes close friends so security isn't an issue. Money smells like vanilla at the end of the night. I imagine if someone tried to swipe any you could sniff them out.

    I also use a cash box [​IMG] with change and bills in top (mine is slightly different) for change payouts, and buyins underneath.

    At end of night I take the buyin money and disperse, and if change is needed I pay it out of what's on top. When I pay myself out last, I am usually a few dollars off due to the change given from up top, which I top off between games I host!
