This is a guide for the 'Four Complete Chip Series' achievement, but the exact principle apply here.

There are eleven types of chip series sets in this game to complete, but for the achievement you only need to complete four. So pick four of these to go for, in reality you will probably get more than four complete by the time you get a 1000. Note: You cannot collect chips in Beat the Brat mode or on cash tables, it has to be in WSOP multi-table tournaments in career mode.

Chip sets:

Invitational wins – During your career you will get invited by certain pro poker players into cash games and heads up matches. Check the descriptions in the cash table achievements for information. Winning Beat the Brat also counts towards the chip set.

My advice – To get a 1000G in this game you will have to do the requirements for this chip set, so this will be one that will count towards the achievement, if you have not already unlocked it.

Over all winnings – You need to acquire $20 million in winnings to finish this chip set. This will come with time.

My advice – If you plan on going for the POTY achievements you will definitely be completing this chip set, the main event alone gives you over $10 million and you will need to win other tournaments as well. Guaranteed completed chip set.

Pro Player Takedowns – This is described in my 25 Pros Sent Packing achievement solution.

My advice – If you go for the 25 Pros Sent Packing achievement, you will only need to knockout an additional 6 players to finish the chip set off. If you find them knock them out, if not don’t worry about it as there are easier chip sets to collect. Just make sure you knock at least 25 out for the Pros Sent Packing achievement.

Poker Hands – You will have to get all types of poker hand, from a pair to a royal flush, no tips here just get lucky.

My advice – Don’t bother trying to get this set as it is based on 100% luck, and you are going to have to get very lucky, if you are lucky enough however, congratulations.

All In and Win – This chip set can only be gained in NL Texas Hold’em. You are acquired to knock a person out on the pre-flop, flop, turn and river.

My advice – This is an easy chip set, however if you only play the WC events, which are the ones which get you the bracelet and ITM achievements (and for time wise I suggest you do), the only tournament you will be able to get this set on is the Main Event, which is the last event in career mode. So chances are you may have already collected four chip sets by then, if not this is an easy one to go for.

Single Hand Takedowns – This requires you to collect two chips to complete this set. You have to, in a single hand, knock two people out and three people out for both chips respectively. During your career you will definitely knock two people out in one hand. However knocking three people out in one hand is hard and you have to get lucky. If you see three people on your table with a very low chip stack, less than four big blinds, this will be your chance to knock three out in one hand. Keep attacking them going all in lowering them further in chips. Then if they all go all in save it and call them, if you win you earn the chip, if one of them wins reload your game and keep repeating.

My advice – Don’t bother with this chip set, just because it only has two chips to collect it does not make it easy, it’s one of the hardest to finish. Go finish off some other easier chip sets rather than finish this one.

Tournament Takedowns – This requires you to knockout 20 people in a single tournament, it is difficult to do it on tournaments with few people but very easy to do on big tournaments like the main event, which has approximately 10,000 people.

My advice – This is one you should definitely go for as it’s really easy; chances are you will get it without trying to get it.

Total Takedowns – This requires you to knock out 1,000 people. After completing one career mode, which will take 40 – 60 hours on pro difficulty, you will only have around 250 -300 people knocked out. This means you will have to knockout an additional 700-750 people, which will take you another 30-50 hours of constant replaying of tournaments.

My advice – Do not even attempt this marathon of a chip set at all.

In the Money – This requires you to get in the money on every tournament. It will take you over 150 hours to do this.

My advice – Again, do not attempt this chip set.

Final Tables – This is the same principle as the In The Money chip set, except you have to get to the final table instead of the money.

My advice – And again, do not attempt this chip set.

Winning Streak – This requires you to win five tournaments in a row. Sounds hard, but if you use the pause save feature and dashboard to reload, this should ome naturally.

My advice – If you use the save function by pausing the game and dashboarding to reload the game when you get knocked out or lose a large amount of your stack then this should come naturally as you win events in your career.
