Love to just type: "Think long, thing wrong." while watching their clock tick down.

Then when they get burned on the river and lose: "Poetic Justice":D

Guaranteed to put them on tilt for the next dozen or so hands.

Sometimes there is a situation, especially it is near to ITM, when a player intentionally delays the time.

Is you enraged by this situation? And how often you detain time so? :icon_scra

The speed of your game

I hate players who make the decisions for a long time. I prefer to bet quickly. I hope that my opponent has it says that I have a strong hand. Some players think as long as everything that they have is at stake.

well...I mean it usually happens when you want min cash on bubble and I understand this complitely... you have to thik about your self rigth?
some times it's a realy hard choise. Happend like 2 days a go:
prf: UTG raies 4bb, I(with AA on the BU) 3 bet him(1/3 of his stack), UTG calls.
flop: AdQdTs (2 suited cards diamonds). Op 4bb raises-I call(I think if I shove there is no way he would call me with a dro or even A since I'm the big stack on the table & have been playing ABC thight-aggro + if he has something strong like poket QQ i will get paid off).
Turn: 2c. Op check-I 6bb bet(showing strong hand but not a monster)-Op calls.
River: 6d op shoves. This is were my time bank was used. On one hand he can can have a dro by how he was plaing before (ultra agro) on the onther hand i;ve seen him push A high-I call (thinking how much I should've folded)
SD: op had a 2 pair AQ
So... not I don't mind waiting poker(especialy tournaments) are not a sprint i some one wants to get his 7cents or take time to think God bless 'em

You need to understand the player. He's trying to hold on to the prizes and doesn't want to risk it.

it is a very annoying practice many players use it tactical sometime to annoy on purpose others hanging on to pass the bubble it can slow the flow of the game you just have to grin and bear it

it is funny. Well, I got a royal flush in the hand and I let the time out so the villain thought I was insecure. And it worked, I bet low and he went all in. Sometimes it sticks, you let the time almost burst to appear weak. Hahaha

depends how often they are doing it, when people start doing it every hand near the bubble it can be real annoying.

The absolute worst is when you've got a player who is "waiting out the clock" as I call it- when hand-for-hand play is in effect. Then not only 1 table must wait, but every table, and it doesn't even help a small stack person get closer to bubble survival.

edit : also its real annoying when every other player at the table is sitting out, and the one person not sitting out is running the clock down, instead of stealing blinds

Depends on the situation.
If they disconnect then I get it, but it's early on and they're just trolling I get annoyed but don't say anything

It is surely a bad etiquette, but I do it sometimes, when close to the bubble and not too many chips left.

Of course, the delay time rival most people annoying. But this can be a logical explanation. Did he really distracted or play multiple tables can be stalling in MTT tournament, and especially trying to perhaps get you out of balance. Since it is provided by the rules - you must accept and try not to be nervous. Sometimes, this feature can be used to.

i don't care, i can get information of that, in the most times when they got a good hand they used to play the hand more quickly
