    Hey tourney breakdown pros,
    I've yet to use my Grand Casino Gulfport set after over a year owning it :eek:, but I am trying to plan a 3 or 4 table tourney.

    I'm wondering what would be the best Starting stacks, and what you'd recommend for blinds and total tourney time. Never done multi tables before.
    We usually play 1 table T5000 3.5 to 4hrs.
    Was thinking of starting this noonish on a weekend to have lots of time.

    Here is my chip breakdown. I am short on GC T100s, but have another 300+ T100s from my other sets we can use (GCR, Fun Nite, BCC Tmold). Up to you guys if you think I should use the 5s or not.

    -175 x Pink T5
    -178 x Red T5
    -300 x Green T25
    -152 x Black T100 (lets say 450 with others)
    -238 x Purple T500
    -152 x Orange T1000
    -59 x Gray T5000

    If you think I'm light on any other denoms for what you want to propose, I suppose I could add chips from either my GCR or Fun Nite sets.

    What say you? (Thanks in advance) (y) :thumbsup:

    Not gonna be able to stretch it to cover 4 tables very easily - that would require 400 x T5 and 400 x T25 chips if using a T5-base structure, or at least 320 x T25 and 320 x T100 if using a T25-base structure.

    3 tables is doable with what you have. I'd recommend ditching the T5 chips, and use the following T10000 starting stacks (200bb with 25/50 opening blinds):

    8 x T25 (240 needed)
    8 x T100 (240 needed, you'll need 88x from another set)
    6 x T500 (180 needed)
    6 x T1000 (180 needed, you'll need either 28x from another set, or use your extra 56 x T500s to fill out 4 or 5 stacks as needed)

    You are one T5000 chip shy of being able to color-up the T25 and T100 chips (30k, need 60 x T5000), so you'll need either one more T5000 or another 5 x T1000 chips from another set.

    If available, four or five T25000 chips will come in handy to color-up the T500s towards the end of the event.

    Don't have it handy atm, but a decent blind structure for 30 x 200bb stacks that finishes in around 4 hours is definitely doable. Personally I'd recommend five hours or so, or longer if you and/or the crowd are up for it.

    Thank you both! Did not know about that ressource. And put an ad for 25k chips.

    The rest I should be good getting the extra chips from my other sets. For now.
