Another option (probably even more common than above) is to introduce a frac ($.25 or $.50), play $.25/.$50 (or $.50/$1), and get a set breakdown that includes a rack of fracs…. The below is often viewed as the standard if there is such a thing…

100 x $.25 (or $.50)

200 x $1

200 x $5

80 x $25

20 x $100

You wouldn't want every hand to be an all-in so the common advice you will get is to start with a 100BB stack. A $10 buy-in should be played with $.05/$.10 blinds but nothing stopping you from using higher denomination chips and just dividing the values by 10, 100, etc.

For $1/$2 game a 500 chip set of $1/$5/$25/$100 150/200/100/50 or 200/200/50/50 if your game is much more limply both will have enough bank to cover full ring

$10 gives $200 in poker money, if that makes sense

My friends aren’t very experienced and there limp quite a bit. Would 200/200/50/50 be your recommended? And it so, what would the breakdown for a $10 ($200) starting stack be? Thanks.

Thanks! Apache only sells in sets of 25 so would you do 200/200/75/25 if I chose 1/5/25/100? Also, what would everyone’s starting stack be?

$1/$5/$25 20/21/3 or 25/20/3 are good mix of chip for starting stack

I'm about to buy a new set and I'm going with 100/300/100/50, but you could do 100/250/100/50 to stay at 500. Every group is different.

It would be ideal to have denoms representing dimes, so 1/10 of what you see on the chips in real value.

Either pump up the buy-in to $20 (recommended if you and your crew can afford it) or reduce the blinds to 1/1 dimes, at actual $10 , to still have the correct and nice 100BB stacks.

Certainly get 600 chips.

150x 1

250x 5

150x 20 or 25

50x 100

You 'll be future-proof till the time you can afford to play 2/5 dimes.

Edit: Till the time you can afford 2/5 dollars actually...

Hey, I’ve decided on a 500 chip 200/200/75/25 $1/$5/$25/$100 with the option to buy 100 more $5. What starting stack would you recommend? Thanks

I'd go with 10/18/4.

I always do 20/21/3 $1/$5/$25 for my first 5 person and 0/25/3 after the 6th person onwardHey, I’ve decided on a 500 chip 200/200/75/25 $1/$5/$25/$100 with the option to buy 100 more $5. What starting stack would you recommend? Thanks

I’m confused on how you are playing. The breakdowns being suggested are good and typical 100 BB buyins. If you aren’t actually using $1 chips just make the chips worth .10 and .50. As much as love cash poker, for $10 you might be better suited playing a tournament style
