New Time Tourney Format at PokerStars

October 20, 2011

Now that online poker is business as usual (outside of the US anyway), Internet poker technology is once again thriving. The new Time Tourneys at PokerStars have everyone flocking to see what all of the buzz is about, and there hasn’t been this much buzz about a new online poker feature since Rush Poker.

Time Tourneys sets a time limit on the game, so that instead of playing until all your chips run out, you play until your time runs out. When time is called, the prize pool is divided among the remaining players according to their chip stacks at that time.

Time Tourneys feature an array of buy-in ranges from as little as $1, so anyone can try this new poker trend out. Just visit the PokerStars lobby and hit the “Tourney” tab. Once there, you will find the new Time Tourneys marked with a stopwatch icon.

Betrand “ElkY” Grospellier says, “Time Tourneys are going to be so much fun. I often want to play a tournament but don’t have hours to spare, so these are just perfect. I think Time Tourneys are also going to be intense, because as the clock ticks down there’s going to be even more action. I can’t wait to get playing them!”

So that everyone can try these new tournaments out, PokerStars is giving out free tickets worth $5.50 each to anyone who makes a deposit of at least $30 by October 28th.

Also new to PokerStars is the Saturday Countdown, a $22 buy-in time tourney with a $10K guaranteed prize pool. The first Saturday Countdown will take place this Sunday, October 22 at its regular 13:00 ET time.
