I'm ordering some Matsui chips, and I chose to use T2.5k, T10k, and T50k chips in place of T1k, T5k, and T25k. I worked out a breakdown of 12/12/7/6 for T20k, with occasional deep-stacked games using 12/12/7/6/3 or 12/12/7/6/3/1 (T25, T100, T500, T2.5k, T10k, T50k), and coloring up to those. Is that an ok breakdown? I'm debating on adding more 500s because of the use of T2.5ks, but I'm not sure about that. Any help would be appreciated. The game has 6 people, with single rebuys allowed in the first two blind levels if that matters. :)

Ditch the T2500 idea and go with T2000 chips. It's a much more flexible, efficient, and intuitive denomination. Lots of previous discussion on this topic on the forum.

For best results, you'll need/want 9 x T500 chips in the starting stacks, with at least 20x T25k stacks (500,000 total chips in play, minimum).

The T500 chips will be a workhorse chip, and remain in play for a long time. The T50k chips will never see play, unless you're running ten tables or converting to a T500- base set. With just six players, the T10000 chips won't see play, either. You're just wasting your purchase dollars.

I do not recommend using a T500-T2000 progression for a set designed for small events. T500-to-T1000 works much better.

With further consideration... I realized that's probably a good idea. :)

I think for a MTT T20k tourney, the T2K and T10K chips would be perfect!
I ended up doing a super high roller with T500, T2.5k, T10k, and T50k, using a 20/20/14/6 breakdown for my STT, which seems more reasonable. Might add on some 250k plaques and make it a T1m breakdown.

Maybe you'll like my super high roller idea of T10M tourney with 20/20/14/8/3 of T5k/T25k/T100k/Tp500k/Tp1M just like in the Bond movie!

Still recommend T2000 vs T2500. The latter poses problems with blind progression.

The reason I'm using T2.5k is it works as a T25, and the T2k denom mold from Matsui doesn't have the little designs between the numbers, which I like. Same with the T25k, which is why I initially chose T2.5k as opposed to T1k and T5k.

Your set so do what makes you happy, but playing with 2.5K chips would insanely tilt me.
