These chips were sent to me as a preview of chips that will be available in February or March 2005. They feature the
World Series of Poker logo on the inlay. They are heavy at 14 grams and have the same sound to them as most other 13
gram chips. They do have a bit of a metallic ring to them but not as much as an 11.5 gram composite. The chips are softer
than an 11.5 gram composite chip.
I could not peel the label off with my fingernail. When I took a knife to the chip I discovered why ... there is no
label. The graphics are printed directly into the plastic of the chip, there is nothing to peel off. The white was very deep,
all the way to the metal insert. The black and red printing was not as deep. I could not scratch the printing with my fingernail
but I could scratch it with a knife.
I was sent 20 sample chips for review. The diameters were 40.08, 40.04, 40.09, 40.00, 40.01, 40.06mm, etc.. Three chips
stacked together were 9.82mm thick.
There are six white edge spots on each chip. They do a very effective job. There are no edge ridges on this chip. There is no
injection mold spot that I could see. The chip does have a very small seam that runs along one rolling edge (much like one Chipco
chip edge). I did not notice the seam until I viewed it with a magnifying glass. I could not feel the seam with my fingers. These
chips are fairly slippery but they stack well.
This chipset is very good looking. They are a bit heavy at 14 grams but they do have a nice thud to them. They feel softer
than most other composites and stack well. You can also buy a deck of World Series of Poker playing cards to compliment your
WSOP chips. My cards Reviews page has an image of the WSOP playing cards. As of Jan. 7th,
there is no webpage available to view these chips and I do not know the price. For further info about this chip, please
