  • "Timed MTT"

    A "Timed MTT" is taking place in about 30 mins.... The tourney ends after 6 levels (30mins) and then the prizepool will be split 50% amoung the survivors and 50% to the chip percentage. sounds fun and easy, i'm givin it a go.

          Details as follows roomik...


          Buyin $2.20

          Game types available: ONLY NL Holdem - there WAS NL Omaha Hi/Lo when I first spotted these timed tournies in the lobby about 6 hours ago, but it seems they are no longer available according to what I have just seen in the lobby.

          Length of Tournament: Anything from 15 minutes to 180 minutes.

          15 and 30 minute tournies are 5 minute levels
          60 and 90 minute tournies are 10 minute levels
          120 and 180 minute tournies are 15 minute levels

          Starting Stack :Looks like it is 1500 chips for all tournaments, regardless of length

          Level 1 blinds : Looks like they are 20/40 for all tournaments, regardless of length

          Prize breakdown...there are two types.

          Type 1. 50% of the prize pool is shared evenly among the surviving players at tournament's end. The other 50% is divided up among the surviving players according to chip count.

          Type 2. The whole prize pool is divided among the surviving players according to chip count.

          A friend of mine has played the 15 minute game. He said that they played the first 10 minutes, then his table clocked the last 5 minutes and played a mere 2 hands. This was despite the time bank being only 5 seconds lol.

            This sounds like the perfect combo of Fifty/50 and PSO strategy... I expect the TIC horses to clean these the EFF UP!

                  These timed tournies are currently on a trial run Moxie. They are asking players to submit feedback to ideas@pokerstars.com. I hope that the feedback is positive because I think this type of tourny is one where a PSO nit grinder such as myself could do all right umbup:

                    I can't find them. But then I'm not sure where I should be looking

                    Is $2.20 the only buy in currently available ?

                      Yes D'man...thats the only buyin available.

                      They are found under the Tourny/Regular/Micro tab. There is a clockface beside the tourny ID (similar to the target symbol that you see for knockout tournies)

                            I'm curious why you would make such a request. If the address is sponsored by PokerStars, isn't it the same as offerring people the link to customer support?
