Not sure where the "angrypokerguy" is coming from with his review. Maybe his batch of chips was defective. Anyway, I have purchased 3 sets of these chips from this site (2x500 and 1x1000). They are made by Trademark Poker, a very reputable company. I would not have come back to buy additional sets if they weren't as good or better than advertised.Long story short, they are fantastic. Superb feel in hand and splash in the pot. They are definitely a premium chip. There are about 15 guys in my subdivision who play poker regularly. To a man, they all agree my chips are the best in the 'hood. Several of them request that I bring my chips to the large, "special" tournaments that they host (3 tables, etc.) because they bring a degree of class that cheaper chips simply can't provide. Highest recommendation.
