How many places have you played poker? Think about it -- it's probably more than you would guess. I'm not talking about home games, but rather casinos with professional dealers and so forth. For me it's 10. I saved a chip from each of them, except for one -- the Hilton in Reno NV where I played back in March of 2004 (when I was playing casino poker for the second time). I think that property is called something else now, maybe the Grand Sierra Resort.

Top row: Casino Aztar in Carruthersville MO (a true riverboat); Isle of Capri in Lula MS; Buffalo Thunder Casino near Santa Fe; the last one in the top row is Harrah's in N'aw-Leans. It has an usual design on it of a Mardi Gras mask that is interesting.
Middle Row: The Goldstrike Casino Tunica MS where I now play most often; the Hollywood Casino in Tunica MS, where I learned to play, starting with 3/6 limit hold 'em; Sam's Town in Tunica MS; the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica MS, a property that is part of the Harrah's family.
Bottom Row: The Grand Casino in Tunica MS, now owned by and named Harrah's; Harrah's Casino in Tunica MS.
Which chip do you like best?
The Hollywood chip is $2; the rest are $1 chips. All are the same on front and back sides except the Buffalo Thunder Casino chip. Because that's a brand new casino, I'm wondering if that is the new trend. Does anyone know?
Think about this: As long as I keep these chips, I'll never be broke. Ya?
