I'm not sure how anyone here feels about this, but i have become very aware of the clock as of late. I use it when near the bubble in a tournament and i usually cash with it. When i go out i only have a couple of seconds left on it. Twice recently i have had players berate me for this tactic saying things like that's chick poker, or play for the win or just don't play. While i do play for the win but I'm not in the habit of just throwing my chips around willynilly.
So what do you think am i playing like a chic or playing smart? Opinions please.

Well there are two sites to the coin here: You might cash more often when shortstacked near the bubble by stalling/running down the clock.
But you are also cuting down the number of hands you get to see per blind level and there for your good hands will be farther apart .

If you're super short go for it, otherwise, save that clock for major decisions you might need to make
