Hi.

Last Sunday (yesterday), we have Daylight Saving Time, which mean that we turn 1 hours to backwards. But PokerStars don't change time until next Sunday.

What does it mean? I came to work Tongue and I would like to play on BRM Freerolls on 7:00 CET, but... hey hey! there isn't freeroll at 7am! I turn off filter and saw, that there was freeroll at 6am.

Please, BRM! Could you change term for freerolls this week?

I think you just need to "adjust your mind" that the freerolls are now played 1 hour different from before. I checked all our October 28th freeroll and all except the first one (maybe due to DST conflict) had 4-5000 players.

And because the world is stupid, not all countries change DST at the same time, so maybe this past/next week there might be some adjustments made.

Australia east coast recently hit Daylights savings, putting us now at a fantastic ELEVEN FUCKING HOURS ahead of GMT. Seriously, so fucking annoying. Worst poker timezone EVER.


Although - to be honest, +11hrs in daylight savings is actually a bit better than the usual +10 hours, since it means games that were starting at 4am for me are now 5am, which doesn't sound like much, but the difference is quite a lot IMO - waking up / getting up at 4am is a bit ridiculous, as was 3am for some events... But 5am is just an early start to the day.

I checked the freeroll that started 1,5 hours ago and there was no problems. So everything still runs at the correct time, it's just that due to DST it's now 1 hour different compared to before.

I don't know if PokerStars will change anything in about a week, I guess we have to wait and see.

PokerStars will change it.
When I logging on a PokerStars, the window will pop-up with this:


Dear Mysik86

Sunday, October 28 sees the end of Daylight Savings Time for most of our European players, as the clocks are set back a hour. Our servers operate on EST which does not change until Sunday, November 4, so for seven days the time difference will be one hour less than usual.
(...)
Normal service will resume on November 4.


I think that I have this pop-up cause I checked my place as Poland, where we set-up back clocks an hour this Sunday.

Then I think on Sunday we have to change the times on our freerolls (here on BRM) as they would otherwise release the password 1 hour wrong.

Sounds fair, do you accept cheques?

Now that all is passed with that confusion, i have something funny to tell you. I woke up earlier than the clock buzz and i was admired because that almost never happens. Then i remember the change of time and i knew i had put my clock on the "new" hour, but was there any possibility of having me waking up earlier? The truth is my watch wasn't right when i went to bed so i was waking up one hour earlier than i should (my biological watch works just perfect) so i just hope i don't get tired earlier today or else the job won't run that good. Can't remember the last time i finnished on the last 100 in a BRM freeroll, got to give it another try soon.

As a child in anticipation of going 'trick or treating' on Halloween, it always annoyed me sooo much that DST kicked just before Halloween, causing it to be light outside - unless we went out after 9pm.. which usually wasn't cool when I was very young!

Our time goes back one hour Nov 4th. We have 6 time zones here across the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific. That's confusing enough. Smile

I read about these freerolls and just become frustrated and jealous because I can't play inthem any longer. This U.S. has got to get their heads out of their ying yang because all they done is become dictators as to what an American can do in their spare time or with the money we work for. Getting pizzed at this country and thepeople who think they're running it. Running it into the ground!
