Poker Chip Color Chart

Ever wondered if there was a scheme to the colors and values of poker chips?  Well there is.  And it changes ever so slightly depending on what part of the country you are in and what casino you are visiting.  We have made an attempt to explain this with the table that follows.  However, it is by no means guaranteed accurate.  If you find a variation, please let us know as we are constantly researching the subject.
