This is a discussion on tournament times within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Can anyone tell me why Ultimate Bet lists their tournaments in the lobby in EST and then has their offical time clock in the lobby
Can anyone tell me why Ultimate Bet lists their tournaments in the lobby in EST and then has their offical time clock in the lobby with military time. With all the different time zones why don't they just stick to one time. It sure would make it alot easier to figure out what time something starts.

They are the same. Military (24 hour clock) and a standard 12 hour are both the same if listed as "ET" or "EST".
Stars, FT and UB all show time as "ET" but their clocks show it in military 24 hour terms. 19:05 ET and 7:05 pm ET are the same. Keeps them from having to add AM or PM to their clocks.

They are the same time time but they list one in military time and one in est That was my point 19:05 and 7:05 are the same time just listed in different way. Why not list everything in military.

thats what I like about Bodog Poker, you can have the time in any time zone you like.

It's only 'military time' to you Yanks ...
The 24-hour clock is commonly used in the rest of the world!
