I have 2 sets that I believe should work depending on the number of people.

Set 1 (Isle hotstamps)

T5 x 120

T25 x 120

T100 x 140

T500 x 20

Set 2 (CDI) - I have $1 and $.50 but they won't be used for this

$5 x 400

$25 x 200

$100 x 200

$500 x 120

$1000 x 40

It seems that starting stacks of 2000 as 10/10/7/2 is the recommended breakdown. It looks like I can accommodate 10 players with set 1, however that doesn't leave any T500 for color up, and rebuy/add-ons are out. Do I just rely on the extra T100 for color ups? Will the T25 even be colored up with 10 players? 20 players? How many players will set 2 accommodate assuming 1 rebuy/add-on per player?

What is a typical tournament length for a single or two tables? What are the downsides to shorter schedules? From what I've gathered the blind schedule depends on lot on how long you want the tournament to go. If you were designing your ideal blind structure using one of my sets, how would it look? Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help me out!
