it's all relative with dwan though, the nits are berating him saying omg these online kids, whilst the nits play 1 pot every 3 orbits beting 8k and the kids plays 8 pots an orbit betting on average 50k a hand.


the amount of time you have/get should be relative to the amount of monies you are putting into the pot.

Bottom line is, it ain't gonna work. There are just way too many variables to try and make it fair for everyone.

It shouldn't happen.

99% of people who complain are online players, leave live players to enjoy it and stick to playing online if it bothers you that much.

i agree totally with no clocks at all in cash poker. 9/10 its the guys who no one knows, or are there for a one off who calls it. having played in dtd/ gala games with mates/ regs who play alot, there seems to be a mutual respect/ unwritten rule that they wont call the clock on each other, does that make sense?
dont see how a shot clock could be enforced realistically, unlike snooker where there is only one game at a time, poker can have 300 people over 20 tables etcetc, be such a large scale thing to do. possibly enforced on final tables etc but dont see how that would be fair to the players.
I generally play quite quickly, only ever had the clock called once or twice, both huge decisions in crucial spots, that needed thought. Ive never had the guts to call the clock on someone haha
agree with the general consensus, dont think its realistic

Calling the clock in a cash game is generally terrible no matter what the circumstances IMO.  I always saw it as an etiquette thing just not to do it.  Don't really like calling the clock at any time tbh, although there are the odd occasions decisions can seem so much simpler when not in the hand.  Only ever called the clock once, at the request of the player taking a minute himself.  Tomsom, he wasn't allowed to call it on himself, so requested someone call it for him.  Amusing for all at the table.

I've actually done that before, called the clock on myself/got someone else to do it for me :p

A nine way chess clock, players get accrue a minute every 10 minutes so you can work out how much should be on the clock for relevant structures. Run out of time and your disqualified. Players can then act fast to start with and slow it down at the business end. Bet out of turn and get a 30 second penalty. Kills loads of birds with one stone. Just gotta invent the bloody thing now Smiley

Simple enough to do with a computer-controlled device built into the table and linked up to the tournament computer.  Definitely doable.

Look forward to seeing you on the next series of Dragon's Den Cheesy

When your at the table and someone is taking the Michael time wise, if its a big pot nobody will back an eye lid because its important to make the right decision and people understand that, but the only thing is with players who don't take as long in situations as others.. they will start calling the clock on people all the time. Is there a limit to how many times people can call the clock or is it just a mutual thing at the table?

Of course u should be able to call it in cash. When someone takes forever every hand why should they waste my time messing about or tanking when they nearly always fold but don't want to? It's even worse if it's a timecharge game.
