number & distribution of chips for first home tourney
This may be a silly question, but I've never played a live Holdem game despite tens of thousands of online hands, and I'm about to host a live home game -- it will be a tournament of 9 players, no re-buys, increasing blinds starting at 10/20, etc. I have a nice 2000 piece chip set with mostly white & red chips, fewer blues & green, and the least amount of black. I believe
W=$1, R=$5, G=$25, Blue=$50, and Blk=$100. So the questions are:
1. Are those denominations correct?
2. Should I do the standard 1500 starting stack (as it usually is online)?
3. Most importantly, how many
chips should I give out (which denominations, etc.) that would make sense for this kind of tourney? Thanks!
