    Report on the events? Any bad beats? Any cold decks? How drunk did Tubes get? Fill a brother in.

    Well, I will be on my way to a family reunion (Tam's side) in Vernon, Texas. So someone will have to step up to the plate and be the table maniac for me. Now on to more pressing matters. SENIOR TUBES SAID: I little bit of elaboration, por favor. :) See you guys at the next one. SS

    I think these are the same chips that Nils has. They look great, but they're slippery little suckers. If you can get something that already has an inset (like Tubes' chips), that tends to help with the slipperiness and tends to give them a slightly better sound, IMHO.

    Lots o fun, Hank. If gas prices keep going up, though, I may have to just PayPal Tubes $40 to cut out the middle man. :D

    I'll give Boat Boy (Blair) a call and see if he's checked the thread and see if he can make it. See you guys tomorrow.

    Well, I think my "notify me when someone posts in this thread" deal must have died w/ the old format. First time I've seen the new layout...can't say I'm a fan. Thankfully, though, Tubes gave me a ring to give me a heads up. I will most likely be there w/ bells on if we're still thinking two...

    Just a heads up for you poker HTFers. I'm going to have a $50 tourney at my house this Saturday (the 22nd). It will start at 2:00 and have slower blinds (30 minutes instead of 15 or 20), so it should go for a while (put in a dinner break if that helps ya). Anyway, I sent out an e-vite, but...

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Bumpsidaisy. I know this thread has died down a bit, but I figured it's the right spot for this post. Little help. SS

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Speaking of helping an Austinite brother out.... I'm looking to buy a laptop for as inexpensively as possible. Looling for something in the 1.5Mhz range, 512+ RAM, Wireless internet. I was hoping one of our Dell bretheren would have some connections on some older laptops. Is my best bet...

    :angry: Bad news. Me and my three buy-ins aren't going to be able to make it. A previous engagement is unavoidable. Have a good time, boys. Don't forget to give us a break-down of the action... :frowning:

    Hey, Nils. I'll check w/ Tam to see if we have any scheduled (pronounced the British way...with a shhhh) tomorrow. She's in Houston right now with the kiddos, but she'll be back tomorrow. I never know what we're doing in advance, but I think I'm free if you can dig up another 5 or 6 guys. I'll...

    Nils, could you post a link to those High Roller chips. Those are, as of yet, the sweetest chips I've even seen, IMHO. I love the extreme amount of denominations, and I'd be halfway willing to buy them 100 chips at a time if they are going to be around for a while (since I'm guessing they'll...

    Just as a heads up to all the poker enthusiasts in the group. Tonight is the regular night for High Stakes Poker on GSN (the GameShowNetwork). There's a new episode at 8:00 and last week's episode at 9:00 immediately following. Why in the world they don't show the rerun, then the new episode, I...

    Ditto on the thanks, Nils. Great game, great company....and I'd say that even if I didn't hit a four outer on the river to save me from losing $30...

    Sorry for the lack of a response. I won't be able to make it tomorrow, Tubes. Sorry. We're going out of town for Christmas, and I've got a lot of pages to get done before I can leave. SS

    I can be there, but I'm going to have to scoot by midnight or so (Tam has to get up super early to go get some CE credits, so that means I'll be up early with the kiddos on Saturday...Tam would attend if not for her early day on Saturday). See you guys tomorrow (I think). SS

    What did they run, Tubes? About $125 + shipping? If so, maybe $75-90? You may be able to sell them to someone in the group (though I'm sure it can't be me :) for near $100 since we've all seen them and they're probably the best chips in the group. SS

    I can vouch that Nils is still around and that trying to get him through his email is a hopeless endeavor at the present time. He is currently trying to SPAM-inate his email address by letting it fill up so the Spammers get bouncebacks and remove him. This forum is a good place to try to reach...

    BigDawg and BoatBoy, You guys planning on making the Wildcard game on Saturday, the 17th, 3:00 p.m.? You guys are the last two who haven't RSVP'd. Everyone is a yes except for Rich (Goldtooph). He's a maybe. So we may have to dip into the alternates if Rich (or either of you guys) can't make...

    Sure can...just not the Championship. So it kind of sucks because $5 goes to the championship, and a new guy won't qualify. So you'd be paying $30, but the payouts are based on $25/person. Come on out. You'll dig it :D

    Yeah, I'd like to check out that chip eventually. They did say you can specify what colors you want. I'm trying to find the place that had nice stickers and prices, but I'm striking out thusfar. I shall continue my search, however.

    Big Daaawwg! Yeah, last PPT tourney at my house this Saturday (the 3rd) at 7:30 p.m. (8pm start). I have ordered two different samples. There's this chip and this chip. It's the second one I really want to check out (cheaper, better looking, et cetera), but it's the first chip I've...

    Thanks for coming out Tubes, Nils, and BoatBoy. Sorry, Jeff, about the bad beat my wife put on ya (she made a move on him by reraising with TJs and Jeff insta-called with his QQ only to have Tam spike a 10 on the flop and a Jack on the turn....uuugly). That is, literally, the first time I've...

    Poker tourney at my house this Saturday (8/20) starting at 8:00 p.m. Check-in is at 7:30. This is mostly for Nils as I believe you may not have got the evite. You gonna be able to make it, Boat? Amber isn't, so it's a golden opportunity for those in that 5-9 spots to get a jump on Amber in what...

    By the way, I think my favorite price-is-no-object chip has got to be The Egyptians poker chip. I love the $1000 chip octagon, but I'm not sure I'd like the $5000 plaque. Awesome looking chips, though, IMO. They are ceramic, though, so they have a different sound, but they, too, are used by...

    Well, the two most important pennies have been thrown into the ring. Those are nice, too, Jonathan. I think I'd go with those. They are definitely your safest bet :)

    Jonathan, here is a site that compares lots and lots and lots and...you get the idea....of chips. http://www.pokerchipreviews.com/ I don't know how important feel is to you, but after shuffling some real Vegas chips, all of a sudden I just don't care for my chips like I used to (but for...
