What happens when there are (2) Chris Furgusons on every table ???
Will you ask for a clock every hand ??
How about Mike Matasaou, is this where you just mute the chat ?
I’m not saying the rules are good or bad, nor the format, or
how long the timer is…what I am saying is that using the rules
to your advantage isn’t against really punishable or wrong.
Dogs, 1 of your examples is, ppl that cant handle 4 tables, shouldn’t
play 4 tables out of respect for others. What goes un-noticed is that
if its 4 full tables of “fast players”, that player you think can’t handle
4 tables, does just fine and lags noone.
If I sit down at a NL table, and someone goes all in preflop 20 times
in a row… I might give them a little crap, I might not like it, it might
cheese me off a little too… but @ the end of the day, I sat down for
NL poker, I can’t object to someone who bets thier limit ( all in ).
Most people forget, even playing 1 table… ppl multitask and say
watch or listen to the TV too… so when they’re attn wanders, and
they don’t know its thier turn, because there is no audible tone…
they prolly only hear the “you have 3 sec left” tone and scramble
to place thier bet…
I have played on sites with TimeBanks… ppl there still used them
to thier maximum, so even that won’t solve what to me isn’t a
problem to begin with… a 10sec timer is a 10sec timer no different
than NL is NL… Once you involve the “thought police” for subjective
decisions, usually more ppl not less, will be unhappy.
