Not a fan of the 500/1000 to 1000/2000 jump. You’ve increased the BB by 200 each of the 4 previous levels, then jump by 1000. That’s a big jump.

I'm not a fan of the constant absolute increases in general - rounds 1-3 50 increase, rounds 4-7 200 increase, then 1000 increase for 3 rounds, then 2000 increase.
Instead I prefer to go up by a constant relative amount e.g. 60% more (or so) than the blind before so something like:
25/50, 25/75, 50/125, (color up 25) 100/200, 100/300, 200/500, 400/800, 600/1200 (color up 100) 1K/2K, 1.5/3, 2.5/5 etc.

Mine generally goes
25/50
25/75
50/100
75/150
100/200
150/300
200/400
300/600
400/800
600/1200
800/1600
1000/2000
1500/3000
2000/4000
Etc….

Still one big jump from 400 to 1000… but need to color up the 100’s there.
That's my basic structure too.

I like repeating multiples of 2-4, 3-6, 4-8, 6-12, 8-16 of each chip in play. But I do base T500 now.

To @Drej you have too many doubles. Levels 2, 5, 9 all twice the blinds as the last level, that's always too jarring. Seriously, just steal @krafticus' structure and you will be fine. There are structures both slower and faster, but that's a good middle ground that will make for a smoother tournament.
