you are going to have a convention where hundreds of people who collect little clay chips from all over the world are not gonna sit down and show and compare their 'FINDS" just like many do here on the board after a said show. I was involved in the incident discussed on the boards and there was NEVER any cash exchanging hands. Just one friend saying " check out my Dunes $1 chip in mint condition" and another friend saying "Nice, check out this nice Crystal Bay Nevada Lodge chip I got for $10!" There were never any SHADY DEALINGS CIRCUMVENTING DEALERS that I saw or participated in. I would think a dealer could have someone spoken to who did something like this that they saw with their own eyes do...and perhaps a volunteer monitor for the concession area to help keep it tidy and make sure there is no dealing going on.
BUT PLEASE DO NOT STOP ALLOWING US TO SIT DOWN, HAVE A COKE AND SHOW OFF OUR FINDS. I can't believe I am having to write this.
This resting area is great and prevents me to recharge and continue chipping...instead of taking a 20 minute taxi cab BACK to the strip where my wife, friends and rest of the poker community are.
