Hello All,
I am looking for some help on chip breakdown for my tourney set. I already have 700 chips in the set and looking to get it up to 1000. What would everyone recommend for chip denoms to be added. Below is the breakdown I already have:

25- 150
100- 150
500- 125
1000- 115
5000- 60

I am looking at adding 20- 25k chips.

Thank you for the help!

How many players do you want to be able to cover? Rebuys?

Add 90 25s and 100s and 95 1ks. With your barrel of 25k, that leaves like 5 - put those in 5ks. That will give you 2 full tables of 12/12/x stacks, or 3 tables of 8/8/4/7 stacks.

You probably don't NEED 25K chips unless you are planning 4 table 20K tournaments. Then the entire barrel of 25K chips still represents about 60% of the chips in play. I don't think you can accomodate that in 1000 chips. Maybe with 1200.

With 900 chips, I think you have a pretty straight forward 30 player set.

30 * 8/8/4/7 (of T25/100/500/1000 for a T10K starting stack) plus one extra T1000 chip for color ups.

This gives you a set of 240/240/120/240 for 840 chips. If you do 60 * T5K chips that brings to to 900 and enables you to accomodate one T10K rebuy per player, or expand the starting stack to T20K on occasion.

So on net, this would require an add of 90 * T25, 90 * T100, 105 * T1000 from your current stated totals.

If you were to try for a 40 player set, you would be looking at 1200 chips like this.

40 * 8/8/4/7 (of T25/100/500/1000 for a T10K starting stack) plus one extra T1000 chip for color ups.

Putting you at a set of 320/320/160/320 for 1120 chips, with 60 T5000 chips and 20 T25000 chips to make 1200.

That would mean on net you need 170 * T25, 170 * T100, 35 * T500, 205 * T1000, and 20 * T25000.

Alternatively, you could forgo the 40 extra T1000 chips for color ups and use 40 extra T5000 instead.

This would give you a set of 320/320/160/280, with 100 T5000 chips and 20 T25000 chips.

On net this is 170 * T25, 170 * T100, 35 * T500, 165 * T1000, 40 * T5000 and 20 * T25000.

This alternative has more flexibility for T20K starting stacks instead of T10K.

Looking for 2 tables plus unlimited rebuys for the first 5 levels. Usually people will only rebuy once or twice but wanted to leave it at unlimited because that is what it is.

Sounds good, you really probably don't need to go to 1000 chips then, really adding another 100 or so is likely sufficent. I just realized your initial count totals 600, not 700. You can probably accommodate 18 players with the low chips you already have, I would just suggest adding some T1000 and T5000 chips, and a few more lower chips to get to 20 players if that's your goal.

If you are targeting 20 players
8/8/4/7 * 20 is 160/160/80/140.

Since you already have more than 120 * T500, maybe you use the following instead

8/8/6/6 * 20 for 160/160/120/120, add 120 T5000 to accommodate color ups and potentially two rebuys per player, and then your 20 T25K, but at these levels, I would never expect to get more than 10 of the T25K chips in play.

On net, this is 10 * T25, 10 * T100, 5 * T1000, 60 * T5000, and 20 * T25000, this would bring your total to 705.

Good luck,

Most of the time the starting stacks are 10k but occasionally we do 5k to 8k stacks for turbos.

for 2 tables and starting stacks of 25k I'd go
240 - 25's
240 - 100's
140 - 500's
200 - 1000's
40 - 5000's
This gives you 12/12/7/10/2 - 860 chips for 20 players

then just add some 1k's, 5k's and 25k's for rebuys/add ons/color ups.
If you want more chips on the table at the end then do a lot more 1k's if you want less chips do more 5k's and 25k's.

Edit, sorry I started writing this before you said starting stacks of 10k. Disregard

I think I'd go 12/17/6/5 if I was doing 10k starting stacks to get Moar chips on the table if money isn't into the equation.
So
240 - 25's
340- 100's
120 - 500's
100 - 1000's
That's 800 for the starting stacks. So maybe an extra 120 - 1k's, 60 - 5k's, 20 - 25k's if you want the 1000 chips set.
