Poker Chip Values
Each player begins the poker tournament with 20 chips of various colors for a total value of 4,000 in poker tournament chips. These are the standard colors found in casinos (except for the yellow chip) The value of poker chips are as follows
These poker chips with values printed on them are preferred over our old chips without the numbers.
The Poker Host will redeem any player held Bonus Chip cards shortly after the tournament starts. Chips are colored up four times during tournament play. The first color-up occurs after the blinds are raised to 100/200 - that is a small blind of 100 and a big blind of 200. At this first color-up the green poker chips are removed and exchanged for black poker chips.
The second color-up occurs when the blinds reach 500/1,000. This removes the black poker chips, replacing them with orange chipsi, a poker chips value of 1,000.
The third color-up occurs when the blinds reach 1,000/2,000. The purple chips are removed and replaced with orange and pink chips.
The fourth color-up occurs when the blinds reach 5,000/10,000 and any orange chips - the 1000 chip - is no longer needed. They are replaced with pink and yellow chips, poker chips values of 5,000 and 10,000 respectively.
Dice Striped Poker Chips
These are the original colors for poker chips the league used. These are not the standard colors used in casinos, but rather what other leagues in the area, such as NPPL, were using. We still use these chips as the "loser's chips" and make them available to play for fun when players get knocked out of the tournament. There are not regular prizes at the loser's table, just poker for chips. Values of poker chips for this set are listed below.
The standard poker chip value for casino chips is listed above. Add to that a white poker chip is worth $1, and a red poker chip is worth $5. This is standardized by law in Atlantic City and most casinos. Our blue chip poker chips have been replaced with purple chip poker chips.
For the old style chips: The Poker Host will redeem any player held Bonus Chip cards shortly after the tournament starts. Chips are colored up twice during tournament play. The first color-up occurs after the blinds are raised to 100/200 - that is a small blind of 100 and a big blind of 200. At this first color-up the red and white poker chips are removed and exchanged for green poker chips.
The second color-up removes the green, and sometimes the blue poker chips, replacing them with black and orange chips.
Hopefully this explanation of poker chip colour values was helpful to you.
