    These are my Rossonian Hotel poker chips that J5 designed for me on the new Majestic blanks by Apache. It's an old jazz club across the street from me here in Denver. It's been empty for 30+ years, but is getting the renovation makeover as the neighborhood sees a revival. So, with the backstory out of the way...

    Help me pick my 5-center!

    I think that orange is the peoples favorite by far, but if you use it in this set you'll end up with half your set in the red end of the spectrum. I think that in order to keep color separation, green would be a better fit. People will say that the 5¢ and $5 won't play together so separation isn't an issue, and that's probably true, but as a set, I think a wider variety of color is better.

    Funny. My brother said the same thing. Basically - that the orange was his favorite as a standalone color, but as an overall set, green was the way to go.

    Decisions decisions.

    This looks like a cash game set, for a variety of stakes. For any given game, I don't see more than 3 denoms in play. (4 denoms is a 100:1 large/small, so I don't see the need for that). I like the Orange, and any consecutive 3 denoms makes a nice playable set.

    Another valid point. For the micro-stakes, I'd probably only ever have .5, .25, and $1.00 in play.
