1 second to think?  0   
Just been playing in a MTT, now i timed out on one hand, not on purpose, was dragged away by the phone.
Then im back playing and get JJ late with a re-raise, so i do a little check(stats) and couldend decide what to do so i fold with almost no time left (its turbo)
Then after that i get a warning and told that i no longer have "normall" time to act, I was left with 1 second to decide what to do with each hand.
Is this a new rule, first time iv ever seen it??
It annoyed me, i had some good hands folded on me due to position, no time at all.
What a load of BS that was, 1 second, fair or not.........

that must have been on party poker with their "frenzy turbo" mtt´s? this is just insane, i played it once and never ever again. dont know maybe because i had several clients open, but sometimes i didnt even have time to call (not even 1 second) so 5-6 rounds in a row it automaticaly folded for me untill time went up again on 2-3seconds time to react. i was so pissed..lol
its not even funny to play.

1 second should be enough to hit those all-in button. Big Smile

If you need more time, you will never be able to play 24+ tables. Blink

Yes. But sometimes there might be internet delay so 1 sec is not fair at all.

Yeah, tons of bad beats in PS for me too, but I always believe in software and in odds, its always more the hands you will wind that the ones you will lose to a bad beat!

Turbo, you get 15-30sec time bank right? Maybe you used the time bank until you had 1 second left? I like having extra time bank.

"This site is screwd up, now iv just had a player put chips on the table before he called?? "

What do you mean by this?

Yer 15 secont time bank, but if i run down to say 7 seconds i still get 15 in the next hand.normally., but the timer didnt even get to 1 i folded about 3-4 to spare, strange.

A few hands later (same mtt) a player to my right had chips put on the table b4 his go, he flat called, the same amount of chips he happend to have on table (BB), think i was on a gunni pig table or somthing.

Every tournament I played on Pokerstars, once you use your time bank than it's gone. That's weird you got time bank back before,

In the mtt, a player called the big blind before his turn?

LOL. I was in this kind of situation before, too. It's very frustrating when you see two Aces in your hand and you can't react in time. Just watching as the AA are folded Aww crap!

I never use it to be honest most of my play is preempted, that might be it then but iv never notice, alwas assumed i got 15 per hand, ill test it later.
Yep the player called b4 his go.

not quite right gene. you have 60seconds, lets say you only use 22sec then you still have 38sec left for the next time. not quite sure how it works with this super turbo tournys. not my taste...

T3ddyKGB, time bank on Pokerstars is different depending on the tournament. If it's a turbo than it is 15 or 30, 60 for regular and I think 3 minute for Sunday Million?? I don't know just guessing.

B1gfoot, that's weird he called before his turn in a mtt. I see players call the bb before their turn in cash game.
