It's fast paced, it's new, it's PokerStars new Time Tourneys! They are going to run with intense action says Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier who is a standard format tournament crusher and even he is excited about the new tournament format, saying, “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!”
Instead of running through all the levels of play until one player has all the chips, the Time Tourneys are an innovative new type of tournament poker that end at a set time. When the time limit is up, the tournament is over and the entire prize pool is divided between the players that remain; with the cash divided according to players' stack sizes.
Time Tourneys last anywhere from a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of 180 minutes, you choose the length of time and the amount of your buy-in that range from $1 on up.
You don't even have to buy a ticket to a Time Tourney - PokerStars wants you to try it out FREE. The tournament ticket costs $5.50 and when you make a deposit of $30 or more between now and October 28th - using the bonus code "TIME" - you'll receive a free ticket. Just be sure to use the ticket in a Time Tourney before October 28th, 23:59.
