    Hi All

    I may have access to get a nice cash set on the cheap, need some quick advice. I may be able to buy my choice of quantity within a much larger set.

    If I were to have a... Cash - $1/$2 - Home game, 2 tables.

    If I wanted to acquire 1,000 chip set ( and accoutrements), what should I get for the breakdown? How about

    $1 x 250
    $5 x 425
    $25 x 300
    $100 x 25

    The count might be too many, but I'd rather be prepared for multiple re-buys than run out, so lets stick with the 1K total count.

    All advice much appreciated in advance!

    200x $1
    250x $5
    250x $25
    100x $100

    Regarding rebuys, you don't need more small chips when players go busto. Give em black when they rebuy. Two racks of small blinds is plenty too. If you're dead set on 1000 chips, add more $5 and $25. May want to get 10x $500 if your game might ever get that deep.

    All my input is based on my .25/.50 deep game ($100 buy in). I just multiplied my numbers by 4.

    two tables, capped at 1000 total chips...

    ya may wanna go heavier on the high end chips... home games tend to play a little bigger than your typical casino poker room game... i ran games for years.... it wasn't uncommon that $10k or more ended up on the table for my $1/$3 NL game

    i would try to get some bigger denominations to be on the safe side... it's always better to have too much and not need them than to run short :sorry: plus, everyone likes the big boy chips :wink:

    200 x $1's
    600 x $5's
    100 x $25's
    80 x $100's
    10 x $500's
    10 x $1000's

    good luck! :cool:

    minimum I would use for two tables (20 players), $400 buy in

    200 - 1s
    360 - 5s
    160- 25s
    100 - 100s (enough for 20 $400 rebuys)

    starting stacks 10-18-8-1 ($400)

    that gives you 180 chips to add where you want. You probably want more than 1 rebuy per person, maybe larger amounts of 1s and/or 5s in your starting stacks.
