Re: Time Limits At "more established tournaments"

I tried to respond in a comment but my response was over 1000 words and MU didn't let me post it. So here we go.

First of all, I readily accepted the 30-second rule, and I think it's pretty obvious I did my best to obey by it last night, and I think I actually never even came to close to the limit even once. And what I will say below is not an attempt to advocate for a change of the 30-second rule. I fully accept it, will continue to play by it, and am not trying to get it changed.

But I do want to respond to something Mike said. Quoting: "I think it is something Simon has to know if he wants to play on a table in a casino or more established tournament where people won't be even close to as nice as we are."

I went and looked this up. I've looked up the rules for "more established tournaments" (didn't look up for cash games, so those may be different).


Poker Tournament Directors Association Official Rules:­

24: Calling for a Clock

Once a reasonable amount of time has passed & a clock is called for, a player will be given a maximum of one minute to make a decision. If action has not been taken before time expires, there will be a 10-second countdown followed by a declaration to the effect that the hand is dead. If the player has not acted before the declaration, the hand is dead.


WSOP 2012 Official Rules:­

Calling-for-clock: Once a reasonable amount of time, which is no less than two minutes, has passed and a clock is called, a Participant will be given one (1) minute to act. If action has not been taken by the time the minute has expired, there will be a ten (10) second countdown followed by a declaration or stop watch alarm. If a Participant has not acted before the declaration or alarm sounds, the hand will be dead. Tournament Supervisors reserve the right to speed up the amount of time allotted for a clock if it appears that a Participant is deliberately stalling. Any Participant intentionally stalling the progress of the game will incur a penalty in accordance with Rules 39, 102, and 103.

So it would seem to me, Mike, that the time limits at more established tournamets are actually substantially more liberal.
