Default Chips missing after a game?

i used a brand new set of custom chips in my game last night. i knew how many of each chip i had but at the end of the night 7 $25 chips were missing.

one guy called this morning saying he had 4 of them and that he was drunk and went south for his initial buy in. still 3 others are missing. im a little worried that they may get introduced in a future game... what can i do to protect myself...

the game is all pretty close friends and really no outsiders.... suggestions?

Well this sounds like a cash game, so there should be extra cash since $175 worth of chips never got cashed in yes? So you put the $175 aside and what does it matter if the chips get introduced later? I'm assuming the "missing chips" are really non-cashed-in chips and not just chips someone has taken from the case without paying? (otherwise how could your buddy "go south"?)

Wow, this sucks. Yeah, if you weren't over $175, then either someone is stealing, or a bunch of drunk idiots didn't count right when cashing out.

Rule #1 of Cash Game: Only ONE PERSON the entire night makes a chip/cash transaction. Nobody else touches chips. Ever. If the count is off, it's the responsibility of that person to cover it. If you get racks, they're a lot easier to count and verify without disturbing the game. If you're at the end and everyone is cashing out at once, keep the cash on the table in front of every stack until it's all verified.

I'm sorry you're missing chips. I've had a couple disappear here and there, but most were found behind shelves or under carpets. So far no chips have re-appeared in a game. That would be even more troubling.

i think i was over some but not 175 worth. ive been a little disorganized with this so far. i just cash everyone out and keep whats left. i also am not sure what i bought in for and i didnt really count my chips. i bought racks for the new chips which is how i knew that chips were missing. even more disorganized is the way the chips were handled last night. i handled the money and the buying chips but i made a mess of some chips while drunk and spilled a rack that had $5 and $25 chips. the guy who went south said he thought he went south but didnt ask for money for them (he was SUPER hammered). still im missing three. i thinking of making a few calls.....

Guess what- you just learned some valuable, if somewhat expensive, hosting lessons.

Lose all of the bad habits that you're already aware of and go forward from there.

you could mark all your $25 chips with something very subtle. but good luck figuring out who puts a stolen chip back in circulation... although you might catch them.

This will teach you to be more careful minding the bank... we had a couple incidents where the bank ended up off by $20 and now the host is the exclusive banker. Problem went away.

2+yrs hosting a revolving door and ive never had it happen either. it takes a lot of nerve to attempt something like this, especially if youre playing w/friends. if your careful, youll have no worries.

If any of the players are cute girls, strip search them.
