Poker chips, together with poker cards , are two important elements in poker. We divide poker chips into three different types: ABS poker chips, Clay poker chips and ceramic poker chips.
ABS poker chips
The ABS poker chips are the cheapest poker chips on the market. The poker chips are made of plastic and are relatively light. The ABS poker chips are made of plastic, but are weighted with a metal frame on the inside. The poker chips weigh around 10 grams per chip.
The values on the poker chip are indicated with a plastic sticker or with a print. This varies with each type of chip. Often these chips are of less interest to people serious about poker. These players often tend to go more for the quality and appearance of casino. These poker chips also last longer and are less likely to be damaged.

Clay poker chips
The name says it all, the Clay poker chips are made of clay. This also makes them the poker chips with the most weight. This often gives the poker player a sense of luxury and professionalism. Clay poker chips come in two different types. The most common is the clay composite poker chip. The poker chip is not 100% clay, but is made up of a mix of different materials. The other variety is pure clay. These poker chips are made only of the material clay. They are also heavier than the clay composite poker chip. The weight is usually between 11 and 14 grams.
