Played the 300 deepstack turbo this morning, and despite doing crap, would like to say what a great idea the 'shot clock' idea is. Players get 20secs to act, and get 3x time cards allowing an extra 1min time bank.
Great idea, especially for the turbo and I'm sure everyone will agree!

Love the idea

when its your turn to act, the dealer has to count 20seconds for you. think that might have a few issues initially, but think itll work fine

superb idea

love the option of the turbo, but hated that some players thought taking 5 minutes to fold preflop was acceptable

then when it was subtly mentioned that we are playing a turbo then they drag out every single action

WP DTD, lets hope this makes the turbos more appealing to play

Works really well. Fair play to the person who put the Shot Clock in practice.
More hands got played and everybody understood the need to act in good time.

I've never played any game, or done anything that was so powerful at making you believe that you 'owned' it... before making you realize that you actually don't.
