Ok here is the situation:
weekly tournaments of about 14 to 24 people. Bounty style with rebuys for the first blind. Tournaments typically last from 2 to 4 hours.
i would like a cPS set that would have the higher denominations in play. If my smallest denomination is going to be the 1000 chip, what set size and breakdown should I get?

Thanks
