The Pharaoh's Club poker chip line came to an end in July 2009 when the
original Paulson version was discontinued. Pharaoh's Club chips are one
of the most successful and widely known lines of fantasy casino chips
ever. In order to keep the Pharaoh's Club chips in reach of
the average home
player we chose to build the new Pharaoh's Club clay chip line.
The new poker chip continues to be produced as true compression molded
clay. Now the Pharaoh's Club will have a unique custom mold and larger
inlays (something we always wanted in the "perfect world").
I was playing online .25/.50 earlier today and this hand came up and I wanted to see what others thought about it.
Hero is new to the table (6 players) and has only played maybe one and a half orbits. Playing $52 on a $50 start, so no real action yet.
Villain is even newer to the table having only played maybe three or four hands, but seems to be splashing around quite a bit. Villain has $34 on a $40 start.
Here's the way the hand goes:
Hero is UTG and raises to $1.50 with 7... [Read More]
My wife acquired this token when she was working there, and we don't really know a whole lot about it. I've only found it on 1 site so far, but as for what it's worth, I can't find anywhere. I came across this site and thought maybe somebody would be able to lend me a hand, I'm very curious.

Playing at local casino last Friday, and I had another hand I wanted some input on...
Table dynamics are: Only one aggressive player at this tablel (he is in HJ in this hand). Other than him the rest of the table has been trying to limp at every possibility. CO has been taking advantage of this over the last 2-3 orbits and has been raising pre-flop 30-40% of the time, and c-betting almost every time he does raise pre-flop.
I have $260 to start the hand. Have been playing very tight up to this point, and have been... [Read More]
I have been doing some odd jobs as per some CT'r requests to pass the time lately. I thought I would make the labels available to anybody else looking to do some labelling.
The RHC mold labels are done to 1.09" so as to completely cover the original inlay. RHC labels are not laminated but can be if requested. It should be noted that doing so will make the label dangerously close to being to thick for even the mintiest chip.
