    I saw the show yesterday (from Season 2, I think? - at the Borgata in Atlantic City). I won't post the winner just in case you haven't seen it and don't want to know until you watch.

    What caught my eye was the chips being used. Muted orange and grey. Did anybody else see these? Any idea what kind of chips they are?

    I looked at them at first and thought... that's odd. But then the more they played, the chips really looked good. So I'm just curious what they might be.

    Thanks,
    Allan

    It was the Borgata Poker Open on September 22, 2003 at the Borgata in Atlantic City. I'm 99.9% sure this is the episode I saw.... unless the same 6 guys ended up at the final table in another episode.... and the same guy won. :)

    Here's a link, including the winner:

    Borgata uses Paulson TH&C with a glossy inlay for tournaments. Bud Jones non-metal inlay's are used for the ring games.
