I'm planning a sort of poker night with a few friends, expecting there to be 6 people. A small buy in would get you a number of chips (we're not assigning specific values to chips and the buy in would be incredibly small).

I was wondering what a good number of chips would be per person in order to have a nice game (balanced, not too short/long, etc, etc). We can assume big blind would be 2 chips, small 1, and probably a betting limit per round or something.

And this all of course would be more for the social than the money obviously. A nice evening at a friends house. Of course Texan hold'em poker. We're not advanced for the full H.O.R.S.E.

I know some of you have experience in this
