Why not do some 6 max turbos, and have a set amount of time chips per player. 30 seconds to make your decision unless you lob in a time chip and then you get say 90 seconds.....


not that hard to do, fixes the problem of people constantly playing so slowly etc




MORE 6 max turbos please ROB they rule!!!!!

I love turbo comps, they are the nuts.

There is one problem, the players.

So many players tank forever over easy decisions just like they do in regular tournaments.

It means live turbo comps just end up having 4 or 5 hands per level.

If only there was a way of implementing a time bank in live poker.


give the dealer a stopclock, he counts to 5 in his head when the action is on a player, at zero he sets the clock to 20/30 seconds. hand is dead once the alarm sounds. players get 2 "timeout" chips they can throw into the middle to give them another 20/30 seconds on a hand.

promote it as the TNT: Turbo Nightly Timeout



but seriously, all dealers should have the stopclocks in use for live turbo tournaments imo

I think the problem tho is that turbo's wont attract anyone apart from people like the guys in this thread who have been championing the idea - all really good players, and cos of this DTD wont put much of a gtd on them and the weaker payers wont be attracted to play (even though they defo should) and the comps be less and less value spesh if people have to travel.

Its a sick idea though whihc im mega +1'ING

and I really dont think this needs saying again but why not not like I have anything else to do...

MORE CHIPS DOES NOT EQUAL A DEEPER STRUCTURE.

Do you not think those who mainly play for the social aspect would be interested in playing 27/45 mans with the chance of playing 6/7 comps in one day and with a small field a chance to luckbox a win ?

I think it could make for a cracking day of poker but not sure how well it would be attended but then there's only one way to find out,hopefully Rob and co maybe see the potential and give it a go.Also +1 to all saying no changes necessary for the 300,it's a cracking comp and nothing needs tweaked at all.

Yh you mean 5 or 6 in the same day? I missed that bit, I think that would go down pretty well.

I wasn't sure what Paul meant but it's something I've wondered if it could work live.I reckon it could work really well and there could be a range of buy in's throughout the day from £20 upwards have 5-6 running at once and lasting between 1 1/2-2 hours and run 5-6 in one day.Maybe I'm in the minority though and there might not be enough interest.

This is a brilliant idea, especially if it was done on regular basis over a weekend when the club was full, say for example from 8pm until close Fri and Sat. Reserve 5 tables and as soon as you get 5 tables, you're good to go. Make the buyin 20 + 5, 30 +5 whatever sensible rake you think you'll need to charge, and make the payouts similiar to what you get online i.e top 6/7 cash. IMO this is a winner and would certainly attract a lot. Great Idea.

I love turbos and would enjoy one more than a deepstack, but I wouldn't travel to go and play one. I come up from London probably every other month to play the Deepstack but wouldn't if it was turbo.
