For the major events this structure should be used with 30-90 minute levels. For fun little home games you can up the blinds every 15/20 minutes.
Antes and some levels may be deleted at the discretion of the host/tourney director.
starting chips between 3,000 – 10,000 depending on # of players, time restraints, starting level and if there are rebuys or add ons.|

 

Tournaments will usually end approximately when the SB + BB = 10% of the chips in play.
Example
10,000 starting chips  x 20 players = 200,000 chips 5% is 10,000 so the tourney will end at or before the 5000/10000 blind level.

If you want the shortcut method to ballpark the required blinds:

No Antes:
Big Blind = Sum of all chips in play / 20

Antes:
Big Blind = Sum of all chips in play / 20
Ante = 10% of Big Blind

Starting Stack Example

8 – Greens (25)
8 – Blacks (100)
4 – Purples (500)
x – Yellows (1000)

x – Pink (5000)
