Do you use the timebank or you don't use it?

Why not? It's just another usefull option if you need some extra time to think about your decision, and sometimes it really helps.

Sometimes it helps a little, in other situations, the software itself discards your hand (considering that you still have the timebank) without your consent. It's weird! Has anyone noticed this?

Of course I do.
In most cases, you don’t have to, but there are hard hands when you have to think more.

Timebank is good tool in MTT while ITM bubble. You do not want get out 5-1 places before money, so you can use your timebank and blinds will do not eat so much your stack opposite others tables.

It's absolutely essential.Sometimes just a few seconds more of thought,wins a hand or gets you out safe. normal time is not enough.

Usually this only happens if you're not invested in the pot, so small and big blinds it will go into time bank automatically. Also if there are antes then it will auto time bank.

I always have a timebank on. it is useful function. Perhaps it will soon be removed so that the game will be even faster, and poker rooms will get rake even more.

I use it when I need to, but what I see in online poker is that many players use all the timebank right from the first hand and run out at crucial times when they have to make a very important decision.

Well , I have seen official poker rooms ambassadors using it on purpose too many times , almost always , deliberately , although their decisions were already made before the countdown of their normal time starts , lol , why shoudn't I do it ?? LOL

But sometimes I need to take a decision , so I really need time . I have to fix more pre-decided decisions via systematic study , for better results , and the opportunity to be able to play more games at the same time .

Unfortunatelly sometimes I forget the table open , after a break , or when the lobby is open and the game starts suddenly while I am absent , especially when I go to the bathroom, so other players have to wait for 60 sec while I have a s*****:D , lol. Sorry:eek:

I actually turn the automatic timebank feature off. I only activate it when I need it. I'd rather have my hand get folded if I'm away from the table so that I can have that time if and when I need it for a decision.

I consider the timebank to be a very important part of my game.

I keep track of my timebank so I know when I can tank during heads-up play, when I can stall when I'm at the bubble of a satellite, and when I can go for a quick washroom break. :)

On top of all of this, I even check the tournament details to see when my timebank will be refreshed if I am running low.

I seldom use the time bank when making a regular decision - I do not see how players can generally be caught out, confused, by another's action. You should be aware and plan ahead for any eventuality when in a pot.

This noted, as I play MTTs almost exclusively, using the clock to run some seconds off every street of every hand before the bubble is a component which should be built into everyone's game (whether or not you anticipate you are safely in the money or not- its also about stack preservation).

It always strikes me as absurd when low stacks close the ITM insta-fold their hands.

in big tournaments for me, I often use time bank. Because there are often situations when you need to make difficult decisions.
