Poker chips

As I mentioned in a previous post I was looking into getting poker chips for a poker party. In the end I bought a set of 400 in an aluminium case from Special Days in Liffey Valley. They have a sale on at the moment so the set was €59 down from €72 and since I was buying the last 400 case which was being used as the display model I got even more money off.

Compared to the kit available in Argos which was €72 for what appeared to be 500 plastic chips they seem very good value. They are clay composite. I have never used poker or casino chips before but somehow these ones feel like I expected poker chips to feel. Nice and solid with a good smooth but not slippy feel to them.

There is also a large array of poker accessories and chips available in the shop, including poker tables. Poker really does seem to be taking hold in Ireland.
