I'm very excited, I've played Poker for a while now, but never had a set of my own. Well, come Christmas I knew I was getting a set, but it didn't materialize. My mom and wife both kept saying that they never shipped it, and after a while I started to believe them - but today we opened our New Year's Eve presents (ok, albeit one day early because we have a party tomorrow) and what did I behold but chips!!!

I'm very happy with them. They're not the 14 gram variety, they're 11.5 but for my first set I think they're very nice. Huge case, 1000 chips, from $1 denomination to $5 then $25 then $50 and finally $100. They have a hologram of Aces on them as well. Here's a picture of what they look like:

I can't wait to use them ;)

I am so broke lately the only "set" I look forward to is drawing to my pocket pair in a freeroll.:D

That's a very nice set and hope you have many years of enjoyment with it!:)

Nice set! It's always fun getting a set.

Two helpful links now that you have a set...

Poker-Chip-Caluculator
Create-a-Blind

If you play a lot of decent sized tournies, you may want to get some color-up sized chips. I purchased mine from PokerShoppe. The Four-Aces would probably go with your set pretty well and they're not badly priced. I used these with my set and no one cares that they are not an exact match. Most people just like being able to the throw out the "big chips" :D

Also attached is my own guide I created for my home games. I keep this available to all who play so they can know general rules. You can change it as needed (excel file).

Played my first game - won my first game! I won a big pot, and then lost a big pot when I raised with my full house 10's over jacks... and my friend beat me with the one thing I was afraid I might see - jacks over 10's. But two wins later I was back in the game with a sizable stack. The end was a showdown that saw jack's and 10's again as I got pocket 10's and my friend's jack-10 offsuit met the flop with a second jack. Then the turn brought out a third 10! The River was nadda and I won with three 10's! I love my chips =)
