    I see that you guys are the experts here, so I'm appreciative of whatever advice comes.

    Going to have 13-15 friends over sunday night to celebrate gil's 40th birthday.
    help me out with a 3 hour tournament that transitions into a cash game
    i agree, the player number is a bit odd, but can't help it..

    i have
    200 .25
    300 1's
    300 5's
    100 25's
    50 100's
    it might even be better end the tourny a little earlier as some people are coming late

    can anyone suggest a structure for us?

    Hmmm... With only one set, I'd think you want to split it between the tourney and cash set, avoiding tourney chips migrating to the cash game.

    You don't mention the stakes for the cash game. Assuming low stakes, I'd reserve the .25's and 1's for the cash game.

    That leaves the rest for the tourney. You could do a T500 with starting stacks of:
    15 x 5
    5 x 25
    3 x 100

    Excellent suggestion by CaptLego.

    Make sure all your "tourney" chips are accounted for before you reintroduce them into the cash game.

    20 min Blindlevels:

    1: 5/10
    2: 10/20
    3: 15/30

    4: 20/40
    5: 30/60
    6: 40/80
    - Remove T5, count them, and use them for the cash game -
    7: 50/100
    8: 75/150
    9: 100/200 (will likely end here)

    10: 150/300
    11: 200/400
    12: 300/600
