Also is there some formula or online calculator to find poker chips needed based on persons in a game?
Thank you for reading my question and for your time!


With 3 people, its enough. Any more, you probably need more chips. For 3 players, give everyone 8 (25 denomination), 8 (100 denomination), and then decide how many 500 and 1000 you want. Maybe 4 (500 demonation) and 2 (1000 denomination). This equals 5k so you can start blinds at 25/50, then 50/100, 75/150, 100/200, 150/300, 200/400, etc...

If you have a $25, you do not need a $50. Good rule of thumb is 4 or 5 times the the last denom. Like 25, 100, 500, 2000.


Standard is 25, 100, 500, 1000. I doubt anyone ever uses 2000.
