A weird kinda question hit me the other day whilst thinking about the film Rounders, specifically the scene when Mike walks into KGB's joint, he asks for a three stacks of high society (a stack of high society being 10k, for those who don't know).

Any way, it got me thinking this: what could be called a stack of micro/low/medium society. First thought I had was $10/$100/$1k respectively. Then i thought that it might be being too simple or inaccurate about it. So I figured I might as well get a second opinion. Or in this case, a community opinion.

'Cause I have done it before and I can do it some more I got my eye on the score'

Give me 3 bags (of sand)

( 3 Grand/3k, Cockney rhyming slang = Medium stack)

So, we would just say "Give me 3 bags"

I would say a $10 stack is a good micro stack, what would I call it?

maybe a buck stack, or whatever that trick is called when they split and interweave the chips lol.

Hope I got the meaning to your question right .
