Blinds and Starting Chips:

Blinds Schedule

Starting Chips = $1000 or $1500

Round Length = 20 or 30 minutes

20min = 2.5-3.5 hours

30min = 3.5-5.5 hours

Round Ante Small Blind Big Blind 1 10 15 2 10 25 3 25 50 4 50 100 5 75 150 6 100 200 7 150 300 8 200 400 9 300 600 10 400 800 11 500 1000 12 600 1200 13 700 1400 14 800 1600 15 900 1800 16 1000 2000 17 1200 2400 Notes on Blinds: This is a standard blind structure for a tournament consisting of 5-50 players. Each player should begin with $1000 in tournament chips (ex. $50 buy-in equals $1000 in tournament chips). If you would like the tournament to last longer, the starting number of chips can be increased to $1500. If you would like to speed up a tournament, antes can be added during the later rounds.

Notes on Round Length: The standard length of each round can be varied depending on the desired length of the tournament. As a rule of thumb, the tournament will usually end within one blind of the level of when the big blind equals the starting number of chips for each player. Another rule of thumb is that when the small + the big blind = 7-8% of the total number of chips in play, the tournament will end.

Chips for $1000 Tournament Color: Value: Starting Amounts: White: $5 10 = $50 Red: $25 10 = $250 Green: $100 7 = $700 Blue: $500

As the tournament progresses, lower value chips should be raced off and higher value chips added (ex. $5 chips are taken out of play after round 2 and $500 chips should be inserted at or near round 8 when the $25 chips become unnecessary.)
