Hey guys, trying to figure out the amount of each chip I need to buy at Jim’s sale to be able to manage a single table T10k tourney with rebuys and add ons. I’m mostly a cash game guy so any help will be appreciated.
Would. 160/160/80/40/20. Work?

For T10k structure with T25 base, with lean starting stacks of 8/8/4/7/0, each 10 man table can be supported by 300 chips (80/80/40/80/20 through the T5k). 10 of those T1ks can be used to color up all the T25/T100. The T5k can be used for rebuys and T500 color ups.

Standard T10K starting stack with T25 base is 12-12-5-6 (T25-T100-T500-T1000). Therefore 120/120/50/75 (with the extra 15 T1000s for color ups of T25s and T100s). With rebuys, I'd add in T5000s and just use change on the table.

EDIT: although with limits on the T1000s, maybe just use all T5000s for color ups and stick with 60 T1000s.

This^^^ if you prefer deeper stacks and are okay buying more chips. Personally, when doing this kind of structure, I like to barrel up the T500 to 60 and then go 80/20 on the T1k/5k for a 400 chips STT breakdown.

So.
120x25
120x100
60x500
80x1000
20x5000

would work for a STT with rebuys and add on? most likely going to max out my order at 2000 and have a cash set and tournament set of the horseshoes upcoming......or wait and hope for the best after limits lift Decisions. Decisions

Just for another option (that may tilt some on here), I like 8/13/3/7. Since the T100 will be used most in the first half of the game, it’s nice having plenty of those on the table, and fewer 25’s, that are basically blind chips, and are removed after a few levels.

I found this post from @BGinGA to be very useful!
I've never really had a set built to play T25K starting stacks, but I do kind of like the suggestion to have 120/120/50/75/35, making your set capable of playing up to that level. Then again, I'm not the biggest fan of starting stacks having 500 big blinds.

T10k is our regular game and I've tried many different combos of starting stacks.

I find that 12/12/3/7 works just as well as 12/12/5/6. I'm also a big fan of the yellow T1k so like seeing more of these chips on the table. A typical set would have 120/120/40/100/20 for 400 chips and more than 10 rebuys.

Another one that works well is 12/17/4/6 for those games where the hundo is your favourite chip. I have a few 500 chip sets with a 120/180/40/120/40 breakdown for these occasions.

In both these sets you only have 40xT500s. I like that it's two barrels of T500s since they're the least practical chip in the game. Now having said all that, doing this with casino chips will get expensive as the 1k and 5k are the priciest of all chips. For one set, I bought a rack of 5s and relabeled them as 1k.

If you go at least:
T25 x 120
T100 x 120
T500 x 60
T1000 x 105* (120?)
T5000 x 0* (40-80?)

10 players at 12/12/5/6
15 players at 8/8/4/7

*Potentially increase some T1ks and T5ks for color up and rebuys or 20K starting stack options.

This would be a deeper than average number of T25/T100/T500 chips and not enough T1000 chips in play at the later stages and it may be a struggle to make change for T5K if they ever get themselves in play.

Following the two most commonly suggested breakdowns will get you efficient, playable sets in only 300-400 chips.

12/12/5/6 is a good average starting stack
8/8/4/7 will work as a tighter starting stack if you need to stretch your set.

So if you are accommodating 10 players get 120/120/60/80/40 for a 400 chip set. (or 125/125/50/75/25 if you have to buy in quantities of 25.) You can also stretch this in to 15 stacks of 8/8/4/4 for a T6000 tournament if you need to accommodate a bigger field.

If you don't mind the tight starting stack, get 80/80/40/80/20 for a 300 chip set (or 75/75/50/75/25 if you have to buy in quantities of 25, but this will accommodate only 9 players, not 10.)

The extra T1ks are to come in play when coloring up the lower chips.

Just for another option (that may tilt some on here), I like 8/13/3/7. Since the T100 will be used most in the first half of the game, it’s nice having plenty of those on the table, and fewer 25’s, that are basically blind chips, and are removed after a few levels.
This option is good for the levels before first color up but it's probably too many T100s after that unless you also take 30-40% of those off the table at the same time as the T25 color up.

But 80/140/40/80/60 does fit in 400 chips.

Start T25K stacks at 50/100 with 250BB and no 100% jumps.
