Seriously, is there enough time?

I must admit… I have time to make coffee and smoke a cigarette outside in those 5 minutes so I guess you have a little to learn about time management [joke] … Huggs back :wink:

It is enough time for a quick visit to the bathroom or to get a drink.

It’s plenty of time, you got a lot done in 5 minutes… :slight_smile:

All serious poker players wear Depends, so they don’t really need bathroom breaks.

I suspect Replay works on metric time or something, because breaks never quite seem like 5 minutes. Sure, I have time to make a refreshing adult beverage, but never seem to have the time to garnish it properly. As soon as I get the bamboo parasol in, BAM, it’s time to play, often leaving me with a half-sliced lime. Very irksome, that.

I think 6 minute breaks would be better.

I find 5 minutes is enough, but if you are actually playing in the last hand before the break, you often get much less than 5 minutes…and if you are HU at a final table, I would prefer to keep playing rather than take the break.

Those are the times I wish it was 6 min instead of 5.

5 minutes is plenty of time for breaks…
but sometimes ya don’t need 1 , so

[x] - Ready to play
How about a checkbox, a player is ready
to continue play and doesn’t need a break.
Only if all participants click, will break be
finished.

The other thing is… when a " final " table
is reached, there should be a additional
break add’d here. Usually for me, by the
time u hit a final table, you might need a
break…( and some new curtains in the
final table room )

Six or seven would be okay. Replay has an unusual system where the break starts immediately after the blind level ends rather than waiting until everyone has finished their hand. This means it’s possible to end up with a 3 or 4 minute break in some circumstances, which is pretty short.

Sassy Sarah is right about the ‘ready to play’ checkbox- that’d be a good feature for SnGs and final tables.

thanks all for replies
Yes yes i know i need get whatever done in the 5mins… just i find it very sparse
i know drink less water lol
issue is… those that play more than one table… Replay Poker is very archaic with their software
every major poker site… PokerStars, PartyPoker, 888, ACR, BOL, Sportsbet, Interops, Bodog, Run it Once
ALL each and every one
make uniform breaks at 5 minutes prior the hour
ALL of them

so when i play at same time: an MTT on 888, an SnG on PokerStars & a homegame on ACR… all break at uniform - identical time… so i have a real break of almost 5mins
on all the tables i playin same time - see?

however Replay Poker marches to own drummer and makes a break whenever

so what happens me? poor Krista still needs pee badly
why Replay Poker no uniform breaks with rest of poker world?

Replay assume none of us play more than 1 table? (i play 4-6)
i doubt Replay arrogant say: hell with all rest poker sites, Replay does breaks whenever want - random?

i think it truly cause they have mickey mouse, antiquated software, unable to make sync breaks like ALL rest of poker online community

i mean Replay still using Flash… generally old & unsupported stuff - time Replay for an update?

so if play Replay… no play more than 1 table & no need pee? lol
hugs

You can do what I do and put a mini-fridge in your bathroom. Set your computer on top of it (and if there’s room maybe even a small coffee maker) and you’ll be good to go for several days straight, depending on how well you stock the fridge.

Granted, I might not actually do this, but it’s a viable solution nonetheless.

Seriously, on “free” chips ?
I’m done when I’m done and play can resume for all I care, ready or not ready.
It’s not as if there is a plane to catch, and yeah OK, that winning hand was missed.
Keep obsessions healthy, it’s just a game and no A I is ever gonna rule my life !

I don’t need a break to miss a hand, I get up when I need to, If I miss a hand so be it.
and yes I have spilled my drink trying to run back to the button lol

I think it should be 5 minutes from the last hand at the last table to finish. If you’re at a table that finishes before the others it could just say, break of 5 minutes will start at the completion of the last table. That being said, yes if I need to get up during the tourney, I do…and I do…because my girls(cats), always remind me that my sole purpose in life is to let them in and out, or feed them…on their schedule. It’s either that or replace the screens on my windows weekly. It would be nice to have the 5 minutes for myself though.

Give your hands a rest… And wash for supper once in a while.

I’m getting Asssitisis
just reading this

Get a laptop and play on the toilet. Simple fix!

I do have a computerized toilet top, It;s called a “Doo Key” It’s usually in my nieghbors yard. When I beat them with 2-2. of course. Butt.Just remember to wipe and flush on. 5 Minutes alone is plenty of time…:mask:

This is why I won’t play tournaments.

Time management is the answer. 5 mins is enough time

Seriously? It’s seriously empowering to have your life ruled by a ticking clock on a website where you play a game of chance against people you’ve never met, for virtual chips – not even real chips, just graphic images of chips – that have no value whatsoever (unless you want to buy some!) Seriously! It is! And five minutes is enough time for you, no matter who you are or what your life situation may be! Seriously!

But that’s for you!

For me … well … this is why I don’t play tournaments.
