It’s been over a year since I’ve posted anything, but I’ve got some projects in the pipeline that will feature here. Until then I thought I’d share something I put together to help sort out a Texas Hold’em poker tournament I was involved in a last year.
It’s a speadsheet that helps calculate what Small Blind/Big Blind betting progression to use. In the run up to the tournament I did a load of research into blind structure that turned out to be quite complex. This site talks about a lot of the theory that my document is based on.
The spreadsheet (located here) allows you to enter the number of players, how much the buy-in is, and what chips you have available. It features 4 blind progression models, and I’ve included a GREEN/RED flag notification that warns you if some settings aren’t ideal.
