Breakdowns for tourney using 100-500-1000-5000
Hey guys, just wanted some advise regarding what breakdown to use for this?
When I use blind valet, it suggests using 200/400 blinds to start (100 big blinds, 40k chips), but then I would need at least 12 100 chips per person minimum Id say. Im thinking about doing a 400 pc set.
Everyone seems to suggest doing 100/200 blinds. All I know is that I want to have 100,500,1000,5000 chips in play, maybe at some point 25k chip for rebuys.
So my first question is what do you guys suggest, a 100BB tourney at 100/200, or a 100BB tourney at 200/400
Secondly, how does chip quantities get affected by the fact that with this spread, 500 > 1000 is only double where as all the other chips are 4-5x. Do I need a lot less 500s, and more 1000s?
I was thinking something like for 8 players
100 x 100
150 x 500
100 x 1000
50 x 500
But I feel as if that many 500s are not necessary, and because of the jump from 500-1000 being only 2x, that more 1000 chips might be necessary?
Any advise? Im so confused! Im just going by the breakdown in the great chip breakdowns thread but the 100-500-1000-5000 seems to break this rule
