If you host a tournament where each player starts with 100 chips (T100) - your chip denominations should probably be 1, 2, 5, and 25. If you host a tournament where each player starts with 1000 chips - your chip denominations should probably be 5, 25, 100, and 500.
Starting Chips. When starting the tournament, make sure that each player has enough chips. Have at least 20 chips of smallest denomination. For example, when starting with $5000, your blinds start at $25-$50; have at least 20 green $25 chips.

Recommended number of poker chips for home games

Free Poker Chip Calculator

Home poker starting chips I have been reading what others have said, but my set seems to be different less high denom chips in my set as I prefer using more lower chips.
What would be the best starting stack amount for either a home poker starting chips person or 20 person tourney with buy ins I have the following which looks to be my final tally for now T25 264 chips T100 304 chips T500 103 chips T1000 50 or 60 chips might buy 10 more T2500 18 chips.
Even for two tables, I'd do more smaller denoms why not?
I'd personally change it slightly: - T5K stacks for 20 players assuming you don't get the additional T1Ks: 12 x T25 12 x T100 5 x T500 1 x T1K Color-up T25 and T100 with T1Ks and re-buys with T2500s and T5Ks.
Once you color-up T25s and T100s the amount of higher denoms chips on the table will be the same though.
You could do a similar thing with T10Ks starting stacks for 10 players if you wish.
Sorry Toaster, we posted at the same time.
I can get another 10 though a bit pricey?
The 2500's are my sexy chip I love the color with the stripes.
I like this stack.
The people I probably will be playing with are not usual poker players at least for now.
If your game starts small and you have ~10 people the first few months and play 10k stacks, some players may find it difficult to dial back to 5k stacks when you have the bigger tourneys.
Solid players shouldn't have a problem with this as long as you're adjusting your blind schedule properlybut others will feel like home poker starting chips have half the money as usual and you'll get less action or will bet like they've got 10k stacks and go broke much quicker.
My regular tourneys use 5k stacks whether I have 6 players or 25 playersand I run occasional deep stack tourneys at 10k.
How does that work?
That would be good.
Coloring up the 500s probably isn't necessary.
You might want antes at the higher levels anyway.
I'm a little biased since I LOVE that chip though.
We really need a sticky with standard blind level structures.
I've seen the same blind levels repeated on so many threads I can't even bring myself to respond anymore.
How does that work?
I wouldn't color-up the T500s as there will be only 100 in play.
It all depends how long you want your tourney to last really but I'd personally prefer to have a smooth and low blind progression with quicker levels than fast progression with longer levels.
But, what Marvelous said holds true!
We need a sticky blind schedule post!
I would love a huge sticky blind post.
If you have amount A of chips and X number of people, do this If you have amount B of chips and X number of people, do this if you have amount A of chips and Y number of people, use these would be great also to have a sticky of chips to buy.
Even though I think I have what I need, I still question myself.
Its hard to get side by side comparisons.
There's a chip calculator spreadsheet available there as well.
There's enough deviation from the HPT advice and what BGinGA and others here would recommend that it might be worth a sticky.
I think they recommend a 4:3:2;1 ratio, but something like 3:3:2:2 for 5-500 or 3:3:1:2 for 25-1000 probably makes more sense.
Plus, they don't cover cash games well at all.
Even the 100's seem like pennies compared to huge stacks of 5k's and higher.
Either the blinds seem too small to start or the value of the chips are too big at least I think.
Early-on, the workhorse chips are T25 and T100.
In the middle stages of the tournament, that switches to T100 and T1000 home poker starting chips assuming T25-T100-T500-T1000-T5000 progression.
For those reasons, the number of starting T25 and T100 chips should typically be higher than the number of starting T500 or T1000 chips.
If T1000 chips are used to color-up the T25 and T100 chips, then the starting numbers for that denomination can be slightly lower than optimum, since more of those chips will be added later plus the number of remaining players will be smaller later in the event, which also helps create a larger ratio of T1000 chips per player.
Larger fields require fewer T1000 chips per individual starting stack, because of the total number of T1000 chips in play across all tables which will be sufficient once stacks grow larger as players are eliminated, by the time the T1000's become workhorse chips.
In general, T10000 starting stacks work best as: 12 x T25 12 x T100 5 x T500 6 x T1000 ~or~ 12 x T25 12 x T100 3 x T500 7 home poker starting chips T1000 The larger denominations are added as the lower denominations are removed from play.
An optimal number of chips remaining at the end of a tournament is typically between 100-200 total chips when three-handed or heads-up.
Total chip counts home poker starting chips of that range tend to either require too much change-making if too smallor do not contain enough workhorse chips for something home poker starting chips already betting and slow the game down if too large.
