I am considering doing a PAD type of tournament and am wondering if anyone knows the starting chips quantities and the blind schedule.

So far I know there are (2) bricks of $5,000 and 10,000 in chips. I am fairly confident that the chip denominations are 25 (green), 100 (black) & 500 (red). I do not know how many of each they start with though.

On the blinds I only am certain that they start at $100 and $200.

Anyone know the missing items? I am going to watch very closely this week to see if I can find out, I only started thinking about doing something like this this past weekend.

Thanks in advance,

AJ

Welcome to the HPT Forums, AJB.

I know the blinds are:
100/200
150/300
200/400
300/600
400/800
600/1200
800/1600
1000/2000
1500/3000
2000/4000
3000/6000 (highest I've ever seen them go)

As for the chip breakdowns, there's the $5,000 strap and what looks like regular stacks (20) of 25s and 100s. Would leave 7500, which is 15 500s. Sounds about right.

Of course, whatever chips and cards you use for the game, we'll need pictures posted before you can proceed. It's a small price for the information.

I know some TDs really don't like doubling blinds but that 150/300 round being the only one to require the T25 chip just seems odd to me.

The PAD is a T20,000 tourney.

Now would be a bad time to report that I suck at math.

Jaxen's breakdown seems about right except there are 2 $5,000 Straps.

I also agree that it is pretty silly to have the $25 chips when they are only used in 1 round.

If you can call, you can raise

Thanks guys.

I DVR'd the Monday night (Tuesday morning) show. I paused it on Johnny Chan's chip stack at the very beginning before any blinds were posted. He appeared to have 3 even stacks and 1 short stack of chips. Based on my estimates there was one stack (20 chips) for the T25's, two stacks (20 chips each) for the T100's and I am figuring one small stack (11 chips) of T500's. That works out to T10,000 plus the two straps of $5,000 each equals 20,000.

Thanks for the blind schedule and I agree about the T25's seeming to be not needed. Maybe they just wanted a third chip color.

Anyone watch last nights episode. New beginning segment and new chips not to mention new hostess too.

This question calls on the experience of this forum directly. With the blind schedule above and 20,000 in starting chips what would be the best durations for each blind level? I don't want the tourney to go on for 6 hours like the show.

Any recommendations?

Thanks. I may post images after I work up my $5,000 straps. As a teaser I use the 8-gram Bicycle clay chips in red, blue, black and green. I have collected up an 800 chips set so far.

We've played a couple of times, we did a T2,000 and lopped a zero off everything.

So we did this interval ...

10/20  25 MIN
15/30  25 MIN
20/40  25 MIN
30/60  20 MIN
40/80  20 MIN
60/120  20 MIN
80/160  15 MIN
100/200  15 MIN
150/300  15 MIN
200/400  15 MIN
300/600  10 MIN

The game takes about 3:15, a little long for a 6-handed table, but plenty of action.

More colors maybe ... more chip on the table maybe ... yeah, the 25's and the cash don't make sense ... at first the cash didn't make sense in the tournament, but now I can see that it adds a little flare to the appearance of watching it on TV.

All that new stuff has been on for a few weeks already ... I do love the new opening ... Doyle's speech is very eloquent.

:o ... step right this way my friend ...

The "straps in a tournament" issue has been hashed out previously. I would agree with your first assessment about it not making sense but I make an exception in the case of a PAD format where it is winner take all since the cash value of the straps does equate to the true value of the final winning stack. In any other payout structure the winner would end up with more cash value in his ending stack than they will cash out for.

Regarding the $25 chips,  do they ante in PAD? If they do, that might justify the need for them in the earlier levels.

There is no Ante in PAD

Just thought I would add in here that last week Chris F. mentioned that the blinds were 35 minutes each. They also verified that the 3,000 - 6,000 level was the highest played.

I was watching some episodes of PAD on pokertube and realized that I asked a pretty dumb question  :-[  I think I was confusing PAD with High Stakes Poker.

They both have the same production company and not surprisingly a lot of similarities between the shows including the fake suite set, bundles of cash in play, and some of the same players.

Nope.

I stand corrected. There is an exception.

[spoiler]
In this week's episode of Poker After Dark Eli Elezra bust out on the first hand.

David Williams folds UTG
Howard Lederer makes a standard 600 3xBB raise with AA
Mike Matusow folds
Barry Greenstein tries to steal with T4os and bumps to 2400
Antonion Esfandiari folds
Eli Elezra picks up AKos in the BB and shoves
Naturally, Lederer calls and Barry folds

Eli spikes a K on the flop but can improve no further.

As explained in the voiceover from Ali Nejad, there was a rule implemented for "Jam Up Week" on the show where if anyone busts out in the first six hands (the previous record for busting out held by Gus Hansen) then they would be allowed to rebuy.
