I'm new to this forum and I'll apologize now. I'm sure this has been asked before and I'm probably asking in the wrong place but I did do a search and still could use some help. I'm not a serious poker player like most of you. We just do some home rules 4-6 mixed games stuff with 15 year old poker chips. I do like collecting chips but that's just a side note. I've been looking into getting a new set or sets of chips and I'm struggling with what denomination and how many of each. I'm thinking of getting two sets. Probably Majestic 600pc and Tiki Kings 300pc. We mostly play 7 card stud and usually just divide out a bunch of chips from my old 500 piece set and play until we are tired and winner gets bragging rights. But I was thinking of making it more structured and doing a buy in of $5-$10, winner takes all. So I don't need the chips to equal the buy in as winner gets it all. I see some starting home tournament Texas stacks only being a small amount of chips. I think in 7 card stud you would run out pretty fast as everyone puts in an ante. I was thinking for the 600pc set $1=150, $5=150, $25=150, $100=100, $500=50, and the 300pc set $1=75, $5=75, $25=75, $100=50, $500=25. But that is just a guess and I'm still not sure what to use as starting stacks. I want there to be enough chips but don't want the table full either. And the goal isn't so much to knock people out as it is just to be the leader when we decide to quit. It's just a friendly game with my in laws. Thanks!!
