Good Morning ! Here in my town I played some tournaments re buy and addon with a new rule the action clock. I would like to hear from you what you think anyone here ever played with this new rule in live poker?
I particularly enjoyed more.
I suppose that you mean the 30 second to take decision clock that is used in the big tournaments. I personally am ok with this as i never think for more than 30 seconds anyway before taking decision. It is good to also have time bank cards for the few situations when you need to think longer.
At the end it depends on the situation in your local casino. I played few times in mine and had never seen player who thinks for more than 30 seconds to minute maximum and usually decisions are taken quick so introducing action clock in such situation will not improve anything.
Im ok with an action clock on Smaller events , The Large Buy In Tourneys I don't really approve of them giving a 30 second time lapse. On the $180 and less tourneys yes Go right ahead because I always seem to run into those tourneys where someone takes 5 minutes to make a decision on calling with a pair of 2s.
I have never played with a time clock, but I would be OK with it...in a $1-2 table, I usually act fast...30 seconds is more than enough time to fold bad cards, and only occasionally do I need more time to agonize over a decision.
