Interesting fact about the chips

Postby fougerec » Wed Jul 17, 2019 11:53 am

Last game one of the players had the case for his iPad open and a chip fell against the magnetic closure and it stuck strongly enough for him to partially close the cover (to a 90 degree angle) without the chip moving. We all thought it was kinda cool :)

Top end poker chips are all clay. The less expensive quality chips are clay or clay-resin and weighted with some metal the make them as heavy as the clay chips. You can do some cool sleight of hand gags with a small magnet and a loaded chip.
