A group of us from work get together monthly for a tournament.  We like the games to last 3-4 hours, or if sooner we start another.  We typically do a knockout.  Almost always offer re-buy for the first hour as well as a add-on at an hour.  I now have a home that I an host and am looking for opinions. So, is T1000 or T10,000 better for our style?  Is there a major difference between them?  What are the pros and cons of each, if there is a major difference?

Thanks...

Duration depends on the blind schedule used. You could adjust it to have a very long T-1000 or a very short T-10,000.  For a 1 or 2 table home game I prefer a T-5,000

Thanks, Jambine.

What is your blind schedule and starting chips for your T5000?

Same difference. It's all relative to your blinds schedule. A T1000 with opening blinds of T25 = a T10,000 with opening blinds of T250 = a T100,000 with opening blinds of T2500.

Good luck, nutn

The real determining factor is your chipset.

Another reason I started this thread was because I am in the market for a new chip set and am calculating what I need.  I won't host over 24 and figure that is a decent number of players to calculate chips.

Please take a look at the calculator I attached.  This is what I am going to use to purchase chips. How does the starting chip stack and number of chips to purchase look? 

And how about this blind schedule for T1500?

10   -   20
20   -   40
30   -   60
50   -   100
75   -   150
100   -   200
150   -   300
200   -   400
300   -   600
400   -   800
500   -   1000
1000   -   2000
1500   -   3000
2000   -   4000

It mostly depends on your smallest available chip and the starting blinds.

I use T1 as smallest chip, which means a T10 000 would probably be insane...

I try to avoid 1/2 as starting blinds, starting with 2/4 means level 2 can be 3/6, thus I keep away from doubling the blinds. And with 2/4 as starting blinds, 200 BB would be T800, thus a T1000 might be suitable as deep stack.
