Re: Do most home tourneys take a small cut for food/bev costs?

Re: S&P removing Delta (DAL) from SP500 & SP100

and some you guys didn't think the S&P Index is "actively" managed.

There is some value in non-index funds (if for no other reason, they've probably avoided airline stocks).

Re: Need help buying chips - how many?

If they do not have denominations on them, i'd not use more than 3 at a time (or 4 very sparingly). 4 chip colors can work, but 5 and/or 6 is way too many to have in play at one time for a...

Re: Some confusion about bonds / CD\'s

I concur. Longer levels will help in that you don't have to always worry about having those low value chips in play

Re: Need help buying chips - how many?

Since the lowest denomination chip is usually for the small blind, I recommend not buy quite as many of the lowest denomination chip for tournament poker. It seems the 2nd lowest (usually equal to 1...

Re: How do you keep track of buy-ins?

I second the idea of having only one person manage the money and chips.

Re: How to handle re-buys

I'd make them rebuy immediately and blind them off if they wanted to take a smoke break.

Because you've got so many $1 chips, you can give every player 100 in chips and start the blinds at:
1-1
1-2
2-4
3-5
etc.

Then again, if you're only playing 7-8 you could just go with 1000 in...

Re: I need a Set of poker chips

The main thing is to make your first set an inexpensive set of chips. (Faux clay, metal inserts, used, etc.)

You can get 500 chips for under $50 from a lot of places.
