100/200 20 mins
200/400 15 mins
300/600 "
400/800 "
500/1000 "
600/1200 "
700/1400 "
800/1600 "
1000/2000 "
1200/2400 "
1500/3000 12 mins
2000/4000 "
2500/5000 "
3000/6000 "
4000/8000 "
5000/1000 "
6000/12000 "

Now the debate is some people believe the blinds should keep going and some believe it should stop at 3000/6000. I personally thought they should keep going but until last night.

We were playing 4 handed and I was the big stack with the blinds at 5000/10000 and I only had 9 big blinds. The game at that point is just a turkey shoot and no room to actually play a bit of poker.

Any opinions greatly appreciated.
do you mean only 2 players are allowed to re-buy per table?
strange way to do it if it is. structure defo needs some adjusting
couple of suggestions

1: choose either freezeout or re-entry
2: have levels the same or shorter levels at start and longer levels later on
3: if you have the chips use a 50 chip too and start at 50/100 with 150/300 or increase the starting stack to 20k
4: get a free tournament clock on a laptop and have it ready before you start only takes a few mins to set it up with your own blind levels

2 tournament options
1: freezeout tourney with no rebuys with a 15k starting stack 15 min blinds going to 20 later on or even 20 mins all the way
2: re-entry tourney 15k starting stack and choose the length or re-entry period say 60,90 or 120 mins( add in 250 /500 level if 2 hour rebuy). 15 min blinds all the way or 20 mins after re-entry period if yous have the time.

50/100 15 mins
100/200 15 mins
150/300 15 mins
200/400 15 mins
300/600 15 mins
400/800 15 mins
500/1000 15/20 mins no more re-entries
600/1200 15/20 mins

re-entry is prob best option especially if some players have traveled far, but will take longer. Adjust the structure the first few weeks till it suits you's
The smarter you play the luckier you'll be
