For me it depends on which poker phase I am.
In the beginning and in the middle I leave myself only a few seconds, especially when I tend to fold.
At the end of an MTT at Finaltisch I try to give me ca. 20 seconds.

I usually take about 5-10 seconds, but it varies in different situations.

It all depends on the situation, sometimes when you play for several tables, there is not enough time to make a decision.

I make quick decisions it's better that way.... My first instinct is by best option in the end.

Personally I tend to make a quick decision, sometimes I do take longer to act then necessary in order to make my opponent edgy

All depends on the situation sometimes stalling but not much mainly on the bluff or with the nuts plus look what kind of players to do it in General, it's all situational

very situational though in bigger buy-in tourneys I try to use the same amount of clock every hand to keep them from having a read, also try to make my betting pattern consistent when I can.

The most important thing for beginning poker players is to realize that bet-timing behavior can influence your opponent's actions. When you start playing regularly, it is important to not act too quickly or you risk giving away important information about your hand.

I usually take about 10 seconds to act. On some hands thou I do tank to induce action. It is sometimes difficult to keep your bet timing consistent when muilt tabling.

one of the biggest mistakes is that when you have a strong hand you make decision very fast thinking you gonna win for sure.. better take all the time available to think first for the best decision

Quickly. In online poker bluff associated with delayed time - not the best way to affect the opponent.
In the later stages-Yes. At an early virtually no. Only when allinn player want to do.
I think so.

I try to sustain a pause of 15-20 seconds, regardless of my hand. I do not want to let my opponents calculate my game.

In my case I try to make the decisions before the timeout expires, usually a couple of seconds it reaches me

Depends. If I want to bluff I bet pretty much instantly to make them think I hit the flop/turn/river. Other times when I try to pretend that I am going to bluff I take a longer time to make them think I am considering whether to bluff or not. All in all though I don't really think they notice.

I tend to use up most of my allotted time except for times when my hand is really bad. (Example: 2-7 unsuited.) Then I make quick decisions and fold right away.

The solution depends on the situation. It takes time to count the outs, the chances of the bank, to evaluate the opponent's game. I prefer not to hurry and think it over. Often, I pull the time as much as possible if the tournament has reached the prize zone and it's important to "sit out" opponents to get into the prizes)

Depends , I don't have a standard time response. Sometimes some decisions need for sure more time to think about them.But the only think I take for granted is when I am out of position and I have flopped nothing I don't check instantly because for many online player this is considered to be the only online read! So I take some seconds and then I check.
