I would note that you have only provided your starting total chipstack and starting blinds. You do not indicate the following additional critical information: A) The total time for the tournament... is it 4 hours, 8 hours, 16 hours, 2 days, 3 days??  B) your proposed blind increments and the time allowed during each increment. This information is very important in commenting on the proposed structure.

You may also greatly benefit by reading the other 90+ threads on event structuring which have been posted by others in that category of the forum

Yes, I think more information is needed.  When you say 15k event, is that the buy-in??  If so, this is going to require a very different structure (and time span) from one primarily geared towards recreational players that is going to start and complete in one evening.

As a starting point, you may want to think about basing your structure on the wsop main event structure sheet, which is available online.

I know it has been brought up on here before, but http://pokersoup.com/tool/blindStructureCalculator can be helpful.

 ??? I am so confused.  Sounds like they have the chip stack, blinds, and blind lengths...

How many players are they expecting!  Are there antes?
