Lots of poker players have favorite brands of playing cards, or favorite casinos to play at. It got me thinking: what about favorite poker chips for playing? I know some people have collections of poker chips from various casinos or experiences, but what about poker chip preferences for actual playing?

I don't like the cheapest chinese chips from ebay. They feel really bad in the hand with the cheap plastic feeling and imperfections.

I am using one of the pokerstars cases for my home games and the chips are good albeit maybe too expensive just because they are branded pokerstars.
