##### Waiting List

I have been lurking this wonderful forum for quite some time but thought I would take the plunge and get some valuable insight. I have recently upgraded my set of poker chips which I primarily use for board games, to a beautiful set of 300 Apache Bank chips. My current breakdown looks like this:

Chip Denomination | Count | Total Value |

1 | 70 | 70 |

5 | 70 | 350 |

20 | 80 | 1600 |

100 | 60 | 6000 |

500 | 20 | 10000 |

Total: | 300 | 18020 |

This set is perfect for any board game and almost any 18xx, at least the ones I play. After using them I love them, and I want to expand the set to be able to accommodate a 10 person poker tournament. Since we can only order in minimum of 25 it makes my numbers a bit weird, since a friend and I originally ordered together and we traded chips to match what we wanted (which is why I have some that are not multiples of 25)

So after crunching some numbers of the calculator this is where I netted out. (Also note I do just want to get at least one barrel of each denomination even if they aren't as useful, since I love the color schemes.

So for tournaments I play T5k which is a breakdown of 8x 25, 8x 100, 4x 500, 2x 1000. We also play with unlimited rebuy's up to blind round 6 usually. In past games the most number of rebuys we have had was about 6-8 across all players (multiples from same person in most cases)

With that here is what I am proposing to fill my collection with. The poker specific chips will be about 400, in addition of the other 300 I already have, with some of the overlapping.

Chip Denomination | Count | Total Value |

1 | 70 | 70 |

5 | 70 | 350 |

10 | 25 | 250 |

20 | 80 | 1600 |

25 | 125 | 3125 |

50 | 25 | 1250 |

100 | 135 | 13500 |

500 | 95 | 47500 |

1000 | 50 | 50000 |

2000 | 25 | 50000 |

Total: | 700 | 167645 |

From players with experience, do these numbers look like they will accommodate my needs? My idea was if the game was intense with lots of rebuys I could always supplement with the 50's in addition to 25's and use the 2k's as well. I don't want to get way more of any one denomination than is needed because I would rarely if ever host more than 10 players at a single game.

Thank you in advance for any help.
