PokerStars has launched a new tournament format which places a time limit on traditional multi-table tournaments, with the entire prize pool divided among the remaining players based on the players’ stack sizes.
According to PokerStars, Time Tourneys is a brand new fast-paced tournament format which lasts for a set period of time, in contrast to traditional multi-table tournaments. As soon as the time limit is reached, the entire prize pool is divided among the remaining players based on the players’ stack sizes.
PokerStars Pro, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier was quick to pump the tires of the new game as he commented in the press release: “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.”
Time Tourneys is available in the PokerStars client by clicking on the ‘Tourney’ tab and looking for tournaments marked with a stopwatch icon.
As part of a promo to generate excitement, the Saturday Countdown, a two-hour Time Tourney featuring a $22 buy-in, will run every week at 13:00 ET with a $10,000 guarantee.
