  • Etiquette/strategy -- using clock or slow rolling?

    It's nearing bubble time. You have a stack that could use some help, but might make it ITM by folding every hand after the clock goes down. You get AA dealt to you. A player who has you just barely covered shoves all-in ahead of you. You make your decision to call immediately. But do you press the button immediately or let the clock run down first?

      Trick question? No brainer. No matter if you fold or call...you always run clock down.

          I'd play it... but, there will be 1 sec left on my clock when I push my chips in.

            How near to bubble time? If you have a decent stack and it's like 5 players to go, I think you have to shove here. Even if you do get eliminated, some smaller stacks are bound to go out on the same hand, and you should ITM. You're already getting decent plus points for sure. It's when you are okay but there's like 30 players left that you gotta fold.

            And yes, you have to run clock. If there are 5 players left and 2 players go out while you're clocking, you're only 3 away and this hand will be the bubble hand. Remember you're still getting good points for a near ITM.

            Now if you flop quads or a royal flush or something, and you run your clock when they shove, you're a slowrolling jerk.

              twice lately that situation has occurred. both times I went out 19 from ITM when my "best hand" went down in flames. Never again. I'll fold my way to an ITM. Even semi-braindead hippies can learn!! have a good one!! Lasthippie

                Well DL, going off the info that you have given, you say your stack is iffy for itm. Then I play AA as I would normally. All in cept the token chip for extra time stalling. As for slow rolling/ etiquette. I don't have any problem w/ that, as I time out everyhand, so, no one can blame me of slow rolling. As, I know you don't employ this tactic, I can see where it would be a issue. So, I say, clock down every hand, so, you don't have to worry about how it is perceived.

                  I slow rolled her. Flopped a set of Queens and used max time. I bet her last 10 chips on the river to protect the field.

                    It was the last hand before the 2nd break, blinds 400/800. I had about 7000 chips.

                      ??

                      i wont clock stall- i take the same amount of time every hand- for many reasons-- usually 4 or 5 blinks of my avatar-- and i will never fold a cat 1 hand - to ladder up-- and again for many reasons-- yet i believe there is a misconception of the point jump- from near bubble-- bubble-- and itm-- so here it is from the scoring from stars---

                      as u can see- at the nominal score of 1500- is only 6 points diff- from bubble to last in the money- that 6 points can easily be made up by playin that cat 1 hand-- chipping up and making a deep run-- imo-- gl monk....
