Here is a poker chip calculator to help you test your poker chip distribution for poker tournaments. The calculator will allow you to try out different combinations of poker chip colors and denominations. This poker chip calculator makes it easy to determine the total value of your poker chipset, how many chips are issued to each player, and how many chips remain in your set.

By testing different combinations of poker chips colors and denominations, you can determine the best setup for your poker tournaments. You will eventually discover that there is no perfect poker chip setup that will allow you to hold T1000 tournaments, T10,000 tournaments, and dealer's choice cash games with the same poker chips. You will probably have to compromise and favor one setup over another.

Although the games are different, playing video poker can bring home poker beginners up to speed on hand values. You can also play for free on all online sites, see www.bestcasinoscanada.com for a selection of places to practice at.

Remember that your poker chip distribution will have an effect on the blinds schedule that you can use for your poker tournament. You can't use a blinds schedule that contains a 15/30 blinds level if you do not issue any $5 chips. Similarly, if you want to run a T10,000 tournament that includes $25 antes, you will require $25 chips. This means that you should determine what blinds structure you will use before you purchase your chips. If you want to hold T100 tournaments, you will probably require $1, $2, and $5 poker chips but if you want to hold a T10,000 tournament, you will probably require $100, $500, and $1,000 chips and maybe some $25 or $5,000 chips. You should try to use standard poker chip colors so for the T100 tournaments you should buy white, blue, and red colored chips but for a T10,000 tournament you should probably buy black, purple, and yellow/orange colored chips.

1,000 Poker Chips in Your Set

T1000 Tournament

T1000 distribution

This is a common 1,000-chip poker tournament distribution of 400/300/200/100 for 1,000 chips and 20 players. There are $20,000 poker chips "in play" with another $59,500 chips "remaining" in your set. The remaining chips will allow you to issue numerous rebuys and add-ons, or play with more players than 20. You can easily hold a T1500 or T2000 tournament by adding one or two $500 chips to each player's starting stack. Even if you do issue an extra 2-$500 chips per player, you will still have plenty of remaining chips for rebuys and add-ons, or for doing a chip color-up.

T1000 Tournament

T1000 distribution

This is the same distribution as above with 50-$500 chips replaced by 50-$1,000 chips, resulting in a 400/300/200/50/50 chip distribution.

 

T10,000 Tournament

T10,000 distribution

This is the 400/300/200/100 distribution for a T10,000 tournament. There are no $25 chips in this distribution so you cannot use a blinds schedule that requires $25 chips. You've got a cool $500,000 in remaining chips to issue rebuys and add-ons, or for doing a chip color-up.

T10,000 Tournament

T10,000 distribution

Here is a T10,000 chip distribution that includes $25 chips. The $5,000 chips are needed to make up for the large number of $25 chips.

500 Poker Chips in Your Set

T1000 Tournament

T1000 distribution

This is a common 500-chip poker tournament distribution of 200/150/100/50 for 10 players. There are $10,000 chips "in play" with another $29,750 chips "remaining" in your set. The remaining chips will allow you to issue numerous rebuys and add-ons, or play with more players than 10. You can easily hold a T1500 or T2000 tournament by adding one or two $500 chips to each player's starting stack. Even if you do issue an extra 2-$500 chips per player, you will still have plenty of remaining chips for rebuys and add-ons, or for doing a chip color-up.

T10,000 Tournament

T10,000 distribution

Here is a T10,000 chip distribution for 500 chips using a 250/150/100/50 distribution for 10 players. Notice that it uses a slightly different starting chip distribution than the 1000-chip distribution shown above. It uses 15/11/3 starting chips instead of 15/13/2, but the end result is the same.
