I was reading one of the threads below, the one about poker manners and running out the clock when nearing the bubble, I didn't want to hijack the thread. It reminded me of today I was playing a Satellite to the BLT, I play them quite often and I encounter this all the time. People stalling/running out the clock, yeah whatever. What about the people who run out their clock in hand for hand play? Are people really this dumb?

At Full Tilt, it shows up on the table after each hand, a big blue strip says Hand for Hand Play in Progress, Waiting for Other Tables to Finish.
But then again, you don't really see it that much if your running out your clock and every other table is waiting on your table.

on stars it's just in the chat box, but even than , you stall close to the bubble, so after a hand ended and it takes a while before new cards are dealt it's obvious hand for hand is in progress, isn't it ?

Running the clock down
As someone who plays a lot of MTT's I would say that people
try to run the clock down at 99.9% of tourneys and it
annoys me so much because as other people have said by the time
a tourney gets to the bubble it is in hand to hand mode so it doesnt make the slightest bit of differerence
I have pointed this out many times but no-one takes any notice
I think this has gone on since tourneys existed and always will whatever
sensible players like you and me think, I cant see any way of stopping it?
