I think you fail to see the point here regarding why people would buy them, that way they could play the higher stakes. If your playing a 500k playmoney game chances are you bought the chips, or have put in the work to win the chips and most likely are not going to be donk shoving atc unless you are a donk who just likes throwing money out the window with no chance of recouping it lol.
In general I don't think anyone who wants to play poker for real money would ever buy play money chips especially on a poker site, like we are all saying its rather pointless (just put in the 200$ and play micro's, 200$ is a lot of 2nl or 2c, 10c, and 25c sng's if looking to just play).
Perhaps people want to play poker, but don't like to "gamble" and don't consider it gambling this way but more entertainment.
