Hello! So I have looked through the forums and see that great advice is given out here and I wanted to ask for some for myself. I currently hold a monthly poker game and it has really taken off and gotten a lot more serious. I had some feedback from the last game that my blinds could use some adjustment later in the game as they doubled after the break, and again a few levels later. I was doing a T1500 stack, two tables, max 16 players (two 8 seat tables). I recently picked up more chips and would like to increase this to either a T2000 or T2500 tourney with new blinds. I shoot for a 4 to 4.5 hour game, it usually lasts 4 hours or so. Unlimited rebuys to starting stack until the break, average 8-10 rebuys. No add on. I average 12 to 14 players, but now that summer is over I have a wait list.

My Previous Schedule (T1500)

SB BB 20 minute levels
5 10
10 20
20 40
30 60
40 80
Break - Color up - rebuy closed

100 200
200 400
300 600
400 800
Break - Color Up
500 1000
1000 2000 *Usually ends here*
2000 4000
4000 8000

My New Schedule (Proposed) (T2000 or T2500) *Undecided*

You could throw an 800/1600 in there. In any event, the big problem with your new structure is 2h and 40 min between breaks.
