Ok so I notice my Everest Poker Browsers time is wrong ( I dont really play there as you will see byt the balance, just signed up to play in the special $1k freeroll which got cancelled) :( so I e-mail support telling them whats wrong please tell me if im retarded as I dont get what they are on about thanks.

1st messgae:

Dear Player,

Thank you for your inquiry.
This year the GMT and BST are now 1 hour apart: BST = GMT + 1.

Please see the following link for more information:

Dear Richard,

Please provide us with a screenshot of your poker lobby along side with
the following link:

GMT: Greenwich Mean Time - World Time / Time in every Time Zone

According to our data, the time is correct however we would like to
better investigate your case.

My reply with Screenie

Hey Ep here is the requested screenshot you can clearly see the time is 1 hour behind =)

Their reply:

Dear Richard,

The current time in your jurisdiction is BST (not GMT). As stated in the
screenshot you provided BST is in force until Sunday 26th of October.
As previously explained :

BST = GMT + 1

Although normally BST and GMT are the same, now they're 1 hour apart.

So what the hell is up? I know what timezone im in.. why dont they update the time as it should be for us Brits? Or am I just a stupid tard? Thanks lol :D

still thinking about my answer :) and I'm american so I'm not familiar with your time zone.
if you are in BST (brittish summer time ) the clock is right .
it sounds possible you are in BST and think you are still in GMT.
just a guess though :)

Urgh, it says that it is 18:13 GMT. (Which is what the link says as well). So are you saying that you are not in GMT and that is the problem. Maybe I am the tard...

Yes thats right the UK is currently BST which is GMT +1 but they dont update the browser so all tourney times are at GMT time and are 1 hour behind, these guys confuse :D

GMT is more correctly known as UTC (Cordinated Universal Time or Zulu time), which never adjust for daylight saving or summer time changes, so everest poker's time is correct. Can they change it to BST, yes, but then it wouldn't be GMT. Obviously they expect you to account for the difference your self.
