In the typical .25/50 mixed game $100 buy-in, what are your starting stack breakdowns?

Whats nice about the 12/17/16 starting stacks is all re buys can be done with fives and twenty fives because there will be enough quarters and ones on the table for the duration of the game.

To clarify .25/.50 are the limits or the blinds?

Are the games limit, NL, or a mix between them?

Any ante games or all blind and button games?

I personally prefer more singles for 0.25-0.50,

I would suggest 12/37/12 myself, but I can see the benefit of having more fives too with the big max.

I think 170 x 1 per table is plenty. I wouldn't argue against having 200 x 1 per table. Any more in a NL/PL game and it can become a hassle. Especially if you have players that aren't experienced with handling a massive amount of chips.

Also, it is dependent on what your work horse chip is. Within a few hours the five becomes the work horse chip in my game.

The $5 would be the work horse chip.`

What I’d do is give the first five players 20/20/15, and get all the quarters in play. Later buy-ins and rebuys would be 0/20/16 till all the ones are on the table. Later rebuys in 5’s, then larger chips if necessary.

Scenario: Same NL/PL blinds.

What’s a good stack to mix in some FL games? And what FL limits would be appropriate? 2/4?
