Patrik Antonius wants to Ban Hoodies, Use Shot Clocks in his Poker Event

Posted on 22 May 2019 by "T".
The Estonian capital of Tallinn is the place where the first-ever Patrik Antonius Poker Challenge (PAPC) was held, at the Olympic Park Casino and the Hilton Tallinn Park from April 1 to 7, 2019. The event was sponsored by Antonius' brand new poker social media app called First Land of Poker (FLOP), which was launched during the festival. Now that event has been etched in poker history, what did P[...]   Read more » Patrik Antonius wants to Ban Hoodies, Use Shot Clocks in his Poker Event

I like when the players wear sunglasses to the eyes. I do not think it's right like wearing these glasses to be forbidden. Hoodies and scarves must to be banned. The first problem with the clock is more complicated because it should be different, depending on the blinds.

Of cause a pro wants to ban stuff, that can stop him reading other players. Most amateur players will see it differently, and be happy by covering their tells. and 10 to 20 seconds time in a live tourney seems to be a bit on the short side.

the rules are in his favour and all in all it sounds like online poker and kills the soul of live poker.
nevertheless i always have a laugh when i see hooded players. tells are part of the game and just like he said "if u cant hide ur tells > play online". to forbid hoodies is fine but to invent a shot clock forces to play like a robot aka online.

I agree with what he has said about the hoodies. Sunglasses also is a problem.
When you play live you face should be uncovered completely.
But i do not agree with the clock. It is a live game. You need your time,
and less stress to think about your move. But also you need more time,
in order to be able and read your opponent. This is why he wants the removal of
the apparel in the first place, right? Smile

I personally think it is not bad ideas because more fast game is more fun to watch and nit so long for other players to wwit for opponent moves. Dress code is good idea too, not very good when player hides all his face sometime looks like criminal

Honestly the hoodies are not something I would consider a bannable offense on any level with this game, but of course for certain televised events they could make a dress code so nobody is taking away chance 4 figuring each others out. But if you really need to look for the sweatspots on somebody for tells then you should give up playing this game.

I do not think these rules will change. There are many players who do not want this and nothing will be forbidden. In the case of minutes, the situation is difficult but here can change many tournaments and Patrick Antonius will be happy.

I'm ok with the hoodies, many amateur players nerves are visible. I'm ok with them trying to hide it

I would definitely forbid smoking and alcohol in the casinos and i would do very well. I've noticed a month ago at a high-stakes table, some players who smoke and drink wine. That seems to me absurd and it's not fair because there were other players, who did not smoke and had anything else to drink.

I dont know what to say exactly on this,everybody have right to wear whatever he want,but on other side you have players like phil luck who wear ski glasses on table and it look very strange!dont think that this will change in near future,but some players do strange things!

Yeah, but if we coming from this angle soon they could be wearing one-piece winter suits with a helmet and sunglasses next to the table...

Well nose if something like that would be good but it would be good to play without covering your face (either with glasses, hats, etc) to read well the face of the players hahaha but good to everyone will like or have your idea with respect to this subject so good is only what I would like to my Tongue Tongue Tongue

It is the opinion of a professional poker player and it's in his advantage if the things he said were banished. He's a fox from this point of view because he will notice the players much better and his chances of winning will be much higher.

but it seems to me that this is wrong .... if a player is emotional enough to hide his emotions, he has to use glasses and sweatshirts ... if you play online your emotions are not visible .... And here you are all in sight ... and therefore do you have to mask your emotions .... or do you think that a poker player in a live tournament should be an absolute robot without emotions?

some players do this kind of things only for show and that other players look at them because of this things,but for me this isnt something normal,to have whole face,body and everything covered!some rules should be and we will see will they change something in future!

Well I think everyone has their point of view and sees it differently ... the truth is that those who are professionals or more experience would have more advantages to see their opponents but good if it were the case I would take a mask so you do not see hahaha Tongue Tongue Tongue
