What is a good blind structure for a T500 set?
I play t500 we do:

500/1000
1000/2000
1500/3000
2000/4000
4000/8000
5k/10k
Double up til the end

We start with:
20- $500
20- $1000
10- $5000

We like lots of chips on the table. High chip is $10k

Not sure if that helps. We’ve been doing that for about 13 years and all my players love it

We use this progression (although you can also start with 500/500 for even deeper stacks):

500/1000
500/1500
1000/2000
1500/3000
2000/4000
3000/6000
4000/8000
6000/12000
8000/16000
10k/20k
15k/30k
etc.
which maintains a 33%-to-50% increase per level (with an occasional 25% to reset the numbers).

Pretty much an identical progression as many typical T25 structures.

By using varied starting blinds of 500/500 to 1000/2000 combined with starting stacks of 50k to 300k, you can host widely different events ranging from 50bb turbos (with optional re-buys) to super-deep 600bb marathons, and everything in-between.
