I run about 300 tournaments a year with varring buyins as well as lenghts of time. My best advise would be to go into the rounds section
of TD and try various rounds at different lengths to get to your five hours. The amount of chips you start with can be as to what ever
you want and will determine your blind levels. You don't want to start with $ 5000 in chips and start your blinds at 5 & 10 Hopefully this will
help you a little. Good luck and hope your tournament is successful.

Very useful to know

1. how many players
2. are you doing any rebuys or add-ons
2. how many chips available, and what is the count per color/denominations
3. Do you have a preferred starting tourney chips amount (T500, T1000, T2000, T4000, etc)

A great source for this information is at www.homepokertourney.com

I usually start my players at 5000 in chips 1500 in blacks which our 100's and
2500 in whites which are our 500 chips blinds start at 100 & 200 and go up about
every 20 to 25 mins. Blinds would then go to 200 & 400 then 400 & 800 then to
500 & 1000 then 1000 & 2000 then 2000& 4000  then 5000 & 10000 , 10,000 & 20000
then 20000 & 40000 then finally if they are still playing 40000 & 80000
You just would have to adjust the lenghts of each round to accommadate the time
frame you want to run your tournament in. You can also do re buys and add ons usually
up to either of the first two blinds increases.
Good Luck

This was for 60 players and 200 starting chips.  It usually finshed right at the goal time of 1 am with a near 7 pm start, so it was 6 hours, but if you have less people, then it should work great.  Also, you can keep all rounds at 20 min where I bump up to 30 in the later rounds because people wanted them to slow down a little when the blinds got high.  Although it's not lined up, just follow the columns across.
