Advice on Buying Poker Chip Sets by Michael Thomas

Poker Chip Set Buying Guide

While it is fun to shop for poker chip sets , you have to give some thought to your needs before you make this type of investment. Start by asking yourself the following questions so that you know what you want to get out of your chips:

  • How many chips will you realistically use?
  • How many players are typically at your gaming events?
  • What is your ideal budget?
  • What is your maximum budget that you cannot surpass?

By identifying an ideal and maximum budget, you give yourself some leeway to go up in price if you find a great price on a high-quality poker chip set. In general, you want to purchase the best chip set that your budget will allow. The more you invest, the more you will get out of your chips. Lower quality chips save you money, but they don’t play as well and usually do not last as long as higher-quality chip sets.

One way to pay for higher-quality chips is to make sure you don’t buy more chips than you can realistically use. If you have to choose between buying more chips and buying higher-quality chips, the higher quality option is always best.

A 300-chip set is typically adequate for up to four players. You will need 400 to 500 chips if you will have up to six players at the table. Chip sets with 500 to 650 chips are suitable for games with up to eight players. If you will have more than eight players at the table at a given time, you need to invest in a chip set that contains at least 1,000 chips.

If you can afford to buy more chips than you will realistically need, go for it! This may save you the hassle of buying more if your games start attracting more players.

Pick the Best Set

Poker chip sets come with a variety of other items, including:

  • Carry case
  • Cards
  • Dice
  • Dealer button

Different sets come with different items, and different sets feature chips of different materials and weights. You can expect to pay at least $70 for a 11.5-gram composite chip sets with 300 dual-colored chips. A 300-chip set made of authentic clay will cost more toward the $100 mark. You will also pay more for chips with three colors.
