Seems pretty stupid to counterfeit chips that big which are certain to draw a lot of attention everytime they are used.

My friend in the tournament said his chips were dull and grey, clearly been used before. Mine in the same event were brand new and had sparkles in them.

Weird.

The pic posted on twitter looks like someone spray painted green chips silver. This is such a gross situation but I'm confident Borgata will handle it as best as possible.

Over a million in fake chips seems worthy of a refund

I wonder how frequently fake chips make it to the felt in online tournaments? How annoying. Glad I didn't make the trip I was considering making. Sorry to hear for all those that are affected by it.

Yikes that would mean 218 5k chips. There have to be bigger denomination fakes too right? 218 chips is insane

It is, according to the 62-year poker veteran I got fairly lucky against in a live 1/3 cash game the other night. Flop: AA9 // Turn: 7 // River: A. We have AQ, he has 99, money gets AIOF. I'm not exaggerating in the least when I say he pleaded with the floor for 10 minutes after busting to examine the cards. Hilarious. It's all rigged.
