Howdy!

I’ve got my Big Easy cash set fairly dialed in (pic for reference) and now have some leftover Big Easy Chips that I would like to convert into a small SnG tourney set (other picture for reference)

I was hoping people may have some ideas for what would be good denominations to divide the remaining chips into a tourney set? I’m not opposed to getting a couple of barrels or racks to fill the tourney set out but hopefully I won’t need to.

Remaining chips to be used:
—120 green ($25) chips
—80 black ($100) chips
—40 purple ($500) chips
—20 white ($1) chips

Does anyone have any ideas???

If you just labeled the 20 $1s as 5k, you'd have a total bank of like 131,000.

My group does tourneys starting with 25/50 blinds and have played them with starting stacks as low as 7,500. I think this set would work for like a T10,000 set. There wouldn't be a lot of extra chips for rebuys, but if it's just a SnG set then you could do it without needing rebuys.

Edit: I don't know why I skipped T1000 haha -- ok, so if you made the whites into 1ks then you'd have 51,000 so you could do starting stacks of 7500 for six players. Maybe add some more white $1s to get it up to where you can have T10,000 starting stacks for everyone and just play it without any rebuys.

Thanks @kaimat, I think that’s the move!! I will relabel the 1’s into 100’s and try to find another 2 barrels to round out the set. 300 chips would be ideal for a small 10 man SnG tourney set.

appreciate your insight

I think you've got a couple good choices:

1) Get yourself a rack of $5s and turn what you have into a T2K tourney set. Relabel a barrel of $1s as T1K. Least expensive option.

2) Keep what you have, and build into a T10K by relabeling some $1s as a T1K (as above) and using the Intercontinental Bud Jones 43,mm V8 from The Chip Exchange's sale for a T5K - I think the Yellow $1000s would do very nicely here.

what does all of this “T2K” and whatnot mean?

It means a tournament where starting stacks are 2000 (hence T2K)
For example, for a typical T2K tourney, starting stacks could be:
10x T5
10x T25
7x T100
2x T500
and starting blinds of 5/10
T1000 chips (2 of them) could be used for rebuys. Using a unique denom chip for rebuys allows you to fairly easily track how many have occurred in the game.

T10K structures are a little more popular, where the lowest denom chip is a T25 and rebuys handled with T5000.
