Blinds Schedules Submitted by HPT Readers

H.O.R.S.E. Tournament Structure in a zipped MS Word format by Rick Smith

Here are several blinds schedules. Use 20, 30, 45 or 60 minute levels, depending on how long you want your tourney to last. Your tourney will probably end a level or two before the big blind equals the buyin chip amount.
