There has been an unexpected side affect with the synchronization of breaks when playing tournaments. The ironic part is I noticed the side affect when I was not playing poker at all. Many other Poker Star players may have noticed the same side affect, if they play often enough. I am afraid I started finding myself suddenly but consistently running to the bathroom at 55 minutes past the hour. At first I did not notice the connection, my husband did. It has now become a running joke that I have been “potty trained”  by PokerStars.
