Hello, I'm looking for some help on a specific player and chip count. I have looked through this thread and did not see anything matching what I'm looking for. If its out there please direct me to it ( possibly asked by me before lol).

Trying to figure out a breakdown that would easily cover a 20 person T-10,000 starting stack tourney but could also cover a 27 person T- 10,000 using some form of 8-8-4-?-?

Denoms are set at
t-25
t-100
t-500
t-1,000
t-5,000

I would also like to avoid starting stacks with very few t-1,000. ex. 8-8-4-2-1

Any help is appreciated.

I might just have to go with 900 chips or lower the starting stack with 27 players but hoping not.

Thanks
Pat

T10K stacks, using T1000 chips to color-up T25/T100 and T5000 chips to color-up T500s:

20 players, 12/12/5/6 stacks:
240 x T25
240 x T100
100 x T500
150 x T1000
10 x T5000
------------
740 chips

27 players, 8/8/4/7 stacks:
216 x T25
216 x T100
108 x T500
217 x T1000
11 x T5000
------------
768 chips

Combined set, rounded to even barrels:
240 x T25
240 x T100
120 x T500
220 x T1000
20 x T5000
------------
840 chips. Add 30 more T5000 chips to cover up re-buys up to 50% of field size.

Bare minimum you can get by with to cover both scenarios is 816 chips, unless you want to use 8/8/4/7 stacks for 20 player fields, too. In that case, you only need the 768 chips that also covers 27 players, or if rounded up to even barrels, it works out to:

220 x T25
220 x T100
120 x T500
220 x T1000
20 x T5000
------------
800 chips

Two options that I have
8-8-4-7

T25 220
T100 220
T500 120
T1000 200
T5000 40

Pretty close to BGinGA's...just more T5000 to allow for rebuys if permitted.

8-8-2-8
T25 220
T100 220
T500 60
T1000 260
T5000 40

Alternative idea that maximizes efficiency and frees up a lot of chips by simply not having a T25. First levels would be
100/100
100/200
100/300
200/400
And then more or less proceed normally.

Chip set of:
300x T100
120x T500
220x T1000
60x T5000
700 chips total.

Accomodates at 10k:
10/4/7 stacks up to 30 players
15/5/6 stacks up to 20 players
With plenty of 1k/5k for color ups and rebuys, or to do deeper 15k or 20k stack formats.

I'm pretty new to host Tournaments, so maybee a dumb question...

But why 217pcs and not 216pcs of T1000? 189+27color up =:216. And 11pcs T5K?


Another question, in a 20-man tourney, is 8-8-4-7 with ×4 of 500 enough? I mean no idea to add some 500s to use to color up T25-T100?

Actually you better off colouring up the 25s and 100s with 1000s and/or 5000s.

This. T500s are a transitional chip and not really that useful beyond early stages. Always color up with larger denoms. For efficiency, no need to even have extra T100s to color up T25s—this is something you frequently see in proposed breakdowns, but it is a waste of chips.

6 x T1000s (value = 6000) are required to color-up the T25 chips (value = 5400).
22 x T1000s (value = 22000) are required to color-up the T00 (chips value = 21600).
Thus, 189 + 6 + 22 = 217 total T1000 chips are required for the referenced starting stacks and color-ups.

Similarly, there are 108 x T500s in play = 54000 value, which requires 11 x T5000 chips for exchange (55000).

in a 20-man tourney, is 8-8-4-7 with ×4 of 500 enough? I mean no idea to add some 500s to use to color up T25-T100?
4 x T500 per player is sufficient, since no more than a single T500 chip will ever be used for a bet or blind amount. It is inefficient to use chips for color-ups that will later be removed -- which is why T100s and T500s are not used for this purpose.

The primary workhorse chips are the T100 and T1000. If additional T100s are needed, they should be added to the starting stack. Since T1000s become the workhorse chip later in the tournament, they can be added during color-ups of the smaller denomination chips.
